Jermaine still 'feels' Michael's presence

Jermaine Jackson “feels” his late brother Michael Jackson’s presence.

The 55-year-old star admits he and his family are still not over the passing of the pop superstar – who died of acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009 – but takes comfort from the fact he still believes he is with them.

Jermaine said: “We can never get over it, it's just trying to live with it and the fact he's not here. We know his spirit is very much alive. I feel him quite a bit."

Jermaine believes the world was in mourning following his sibling’s untimely death at the age of 50 because they recognised he had contributed more to life than just his music.

He said: “We hurt, like everyone else. We're not made of steel. We're human beings: we're family. And when Michael passed and the world cried, they didn't cry because of an entertainer. They cried because of the love that he put back out there and what he was about."
