Janet Jackson made a very emotional appearance at the end of the ’09 BET Awards on Sunday night. The singer/actress spoke on behalf of the Jackson Family with this statement:
“My entire family wanted to be here tonight, but it was just too painful. So they elected me to speak with all of you.
To you, Michael is an icon, to us, Michael is family. And he will forever live in all of our hearts. On behalf of my family and myself, thank you for all of your love, thank you for all of your support. We miss him so much. Thank you so much.”
In related news, Janet was made executor of Michael Jackson’s estate and will soon begin the long process of handling his assets, debts and what money her brother left behind. A family friend tells the New York Post, “She’s in charge, she had the documents, she has control of his stuff.”
Our hearts are definitely with Janet and the Jackson family at this time – that took a lot of strength. View video below…
