Jackson was ‘controlled’

LA TOYA Jackson said yesterday that her brother Michael was “controlled” by people who would barge their way into his life.

Speaking on GMTV, La Toya said the family was not comfortable with people who surrounded her brother.

She told the ITV show: “Michael was in a position where [he was] very meek and very kind and people would just barge their way into his life and into his circle which was not a good thing to do.

“People controlled him. They controlled him, they did what they wanted.”

La Toya also said of the investigation into her brother’s death: “I think that they’re doing an absolutely wonderful job.”
