Michael Jackson’s mother Katherine has revealed that her late son was a generous and kind soul, who would regularly help the homeless by giving them hundreds of dollars.

The late pop legend - who amassed a huge fortune throughout his career - was keen to help those less fortunate then himself and would regularly pull over in his car and hand over whatever money he had in his wallet when he saw beggars on the street, Contactmusic reported.

The 82-year-old told HELLO! Magazine that Michael was a humble person, and was one of the best people. If he saw somebody standing in the corner begging, he’d stop the car and just give them all the money in his pocket, be it 300 or 400 dollars and sometimes more, she said.
