2 August, 2012 at 6:49 am

Jermaine Jackson issued a statement recently saying he wants peace and said , “Enough has become enough.”

“Yesterday, I had a phone call with my son Jaafar that broke my heart. He asked, ‘Is it true that we cannot visit grandmother’s house as a family anymore?'” Jermaine said. “After much soul-searching, it is clearly time for us to live by Michael’s words about love not war. In this spirit, I offer this statement by way of extending an olive-branch. Accordingly, I rescind my signature from the letter which was sent to the estate, and which should never have gone public.”

He adds that “the way to address such matters is through the proper channels and via a private dialogue, not public conflict.”

He wants the family to resolve problems privately by saying, “Mistakes have been made and irrational things have been said on both sides in a highly-charged emotional environment,” he adds. “It is time for us all to draw a line in the same and move towards peace, cooperation, love and healing. I truly hope that we can find it in our heats to do so. Because above and beyond anything else, what matters…is family.”
