“What 35-year-old man sleeps with little boys and stays with them for a week or two weeks or whatever? And sleep in the same bed.
“Most people would say, ‘That’s totally wrong. That’s totally unfair.’”
La Toya was exiled from her family for a period in the 1990s following her abusive marriage to businessman Jack Gordon — who the Jacksons labelled a “conman” who had brainwashed her.
But at the time, La Toya claimed she was speaking out against her brother because she was a victim of abuse herself — alleging her father Joe molested her when she was a child.
She claimed that her family feared being cut off by Michael — who at the time was one of the biggest stars in the world.
La Toya said: “He supports everyone.”
Katherine Jackson was one of the main beneficiaries of Michael’s vast estate when he died in 2009 from a drug overdose.
Angered at her mother’s silence, La Toya said: “Why didn’t she say something about it or do something about it or get help because she thought he was bothering little kids.
“I didn’t understand the fact that he was bothering little kids. I didn’t understand why the cheques were written.
“She was the one who was trying to explain these things to me. But now she’s denying it and covering it up.”
La Toya, who enjoyed a successful pop career in the 1980s, said Michael would often refuse to see his brothers at the height of his fame.
She said: “When they would come to the house, Michael would say, ‘Have them make an appointment.’
“I would have to make excuses and say, ‘Well he’s busy. He’s in his room.’
“He would be in his room, saying, ‘I don’t want to see them. I don’t want to be bothered with this.’”
In 1993, the Jackson family claimed that La Toya’s husband had forced her to make the allegations against her brother for financial gain.
The same year, a civil lawsuit was brought against Jackson by Jordan Chandler, a former child companion of Michael. By January 1994, the singer paid an out-of-court settlement of $US23 million to Chandler.
