She has been guarding her feelings since her brother Michael Jackson's death in 2009, but Janet Jackson has now revealed, on
The Oprah Winfrey Show
on BIG CBS LOVE, that she just can’t get over the pop legend’s demise.
“It’s hard to believe still to this day,” she said while holding back her tears. “There isn't a day that goes by where I don't think about him. Our whole family thinks of him every single day,” added the pop icon, who was on the show with her
Why Did I Get Married Too
co-star Tyler Perry.
Jackson said she has difficulty looking at pictures of the King of Pop, so much so, that she physically turns away whenever she sees videos or photographs of her late brother. She does, however, view his childhood photos, as they remind her of the fun they had while growing up.
“I can look at that all day long. I have a beautiful picture in my home of him and me when we were just babies,” says the 44-year-old.
The last time she saw him was a month before his death.
“He was thin. We knew that he had a problem. We all did, and a lot of people think that we were in denial, which we weren’t at all. We tried intervention several times,” she said. But the late pop sensation denied having any health issues.
When asked how his kids —Prince, Paris and Prince Michael are doing, she said: “All my nieces and nephews are okay. You know, it’s difficult. Their father passed. But they’re dealing with it, and thank god they have their family around them.”
