Joe JacksonOh, to be a fly on the wall at the Jackson family compound. Joe Jackson is walking back comments he made to a British tabloid on Sunday that seemed to accuse his wife, Katherine, of not doing enough to prevent their son Michael's death.

"Katherine did not kill my son," he told PopEater on Monday. "She isn't at fault."

This change of rhetoric follows a News of the World article where the patriarch said his wife refused to help Michael when he was at his frailest, "because she was afraid she was invading his privacy."
