London (ANI): Michael Jackson's mother Katherine opened up about her torment on the first anniversary of the singer's death. "I know Michael did not die of natural causes. Someone did this to him. Mean, evil, vicious people didn't want him around for some reason. It just shows how vicious people are and greedy for money," 80-year-old Katherine said.
"He told me several times that he felt that people wanted him gone, wanted him dead. He would always say that. And for him to say that he must have known something. But his death has brought the family closer," she added.
The Jackson family is furious with the people who were around the King of Pop in his final months. They believe the weak popstar was under pressure to perform the comeback shows at London's O2, reports The Sun. The family said that Jackson's billion dollar earnings after his death have proved that he was considered to be worth more dead than alive.
"A year has gone by but it is still just as emotional. It's very hard sometimes. I am happy that people are celebrating the anniversary because I know the world is missing and remembering my son," Katherine said. "I'm happy because I know Michael would have been happy to see his fans still worshipping him. But every day is a struggle - I miss him immensely. There is not a day that goes by that we don't think about Michael. We will never forget him," she added.
