Joe Jackson’s Cousin Exposes Why He Was Offered $200K To Say MJ Touched His Kids

Posted On : March 8, 2016

A cousin of Joe Jackson, who is also a former well known drug kingpin/self-proclaimed gangster, revealed some very shocking information recently about an offer that he’d received back in the day to lie on his cousin, Michael Jackson in court. His name is James Newt and when his sons (MJ’s young cousins) then a pre-teen singing group called, The Newtrons, they were signed to Joe Jackson’s record label, Jackson records. That was also around the same time that MJ was going through the child molestation trial that he was ultimately found not guilty of. Newt knew his cousins, MJ and Joe, very well, oftentimes hangin’ out at their Hayvenhurst family hm in Encino, Ca.. Check out the lowdown mess James Newt says he was once asked to do to Michael Jackson, which he ultimately turned down with the quickness in his interview with Vlad TV (scroll down for video)…

Vlad: Now, later on Michael was being charged with the whole child molestation thing and you actually got dragged into the middle of this…

James Newt: “Yeah a friend of mine told the National Enquirer he knew some family that knew the Jacksons and they called me on the phone and asked me to come to the hotel. Now me being a playa from the Himalayas, I said ‘I’mma go and see what they talking’ about so I can take the information back to Mike and Johnnie Cochran. So I go down there…I say ‘Yeah what’s happenin?’ …I say “What I’m here for? I’m here to help Michael.” They say “Oh no, that ain’t what we want with you. We heard that your boys spent nights at the house and we wanna know if Michael tampered with ’em….uh just picked them up, or touched them in any kind of way. If he did, we got $200,000 for you.” I said ‘Huh?’ I had just got outta prison, I said ‘man I can’t do that, can’t tell no lie like that. i ain’t doing that.’ He said “You sure? What I’mma do [is] I’mma draw a check up, a contract up and I’mma show you we fitna give you $200,000!”

V: So they wanted to pay you $200,000 to say that Michael Jackson had molested your kids?

JN: Yeah just touched ’em, or whatever…molested, touched ’em, anything.”

When asked what he would have done if he ever found out that Michael had touched his kids, Newt replied:

“C’mon man I’mma gangster, what you think I would’ve done?”

When asked if he once said he would have killed MJ if he would have touched his children Newt then admitted:

“If he would have touched my kids? Absolutely. But I love Michael and I know Michael didn’t do that, so he ain’t have no problem worrying about me.”

James Newt - MJ
Newt also claimed that The National Enquirer found out that he had taken a photo of MJ and one of his sons right after they’d gotten out of the pool one day at MJ’s house, but that they wanted to turn the photo into something evil by asking if they could use that photo as evidence that MJ had touched Newt’s kids.

If you still have some doubt, you might feel differently after you watch the video below to the end, where MJ’s cousin, James Newt, shows the pictures!

This is not the first time we’ve heard about someone being offered money to frame MJ- we’ve seen a few of the so called victims later recant their claims after MJ passed away and confess that they lied on MJ and were forced to do it by their parents. There have been many conspiracies as to why that was being done to MJ, with the most consistent one being that the big wigs in the music industry reportedly wanted to silence him. In fact it has widely been alleged that MJ’s former record label did not want him to have as much power as he had in the industry.

You see, MJ had outsmarted major music corporations in the game by ultimately gaining ownership of a huge stake in their music catalogue, which is the bread, butter, and bargaining power for any record label. We’re not sure who was supposedly behind this alleged 200,000 offer to Jackson’s cousin, but it’s definitely believable.
