JERMAINE Jackson says he now has "proof" his brother Michael Jackson was innocent of child molestation.
The late pop legend's older brother has spoken out about the 1993 claims that Michael sexually abused 13-year-old Jordan Chandler and claims the recent suicide of the teenager's father, Evan Chandler, proves the accusations were false.
Jermaine believes the dentist - who was found dead in bed on November 5 after shooting himself in the head - killed himself because "he felt guilty".
Speaking at a charity event at the Magic Johnson AMC Theatre this week, Jermaine said: "This kid's father has committed suicide because he just couldn't take it and now the kid has come forward and said Michael never touched him."
Since Michael died in June there have been several rumours published on the Internet that claim Jordan, now 29, has since admitted the abuse claims were false.
Michael always maintained his innocence, and eventually settled out of court with the Chandler family in January 1994 for $22million(R165million). Jordan had to sign a contract agreeing never to talk about the allegations. - Bang
