As stated door singer, Jerry Butler, in his 1969 hit song, "Only The Strong Survive", u got to be man and u got to take because only the survive, but in Michael Jackson's case every word of it was true. Michael was a true survivor in every way possible having to deal with two child molestation allegations made against, two failed marriages and his some of the members of his family and their irrational jealousies towards him. Michael's has been pushed and kicked around so many times I can't even keep track.
The media spent most of their time trying underestimate; as well, as undermine him in every way possible, but Michael always manged to picked himself and get back in the race. I think about the time when he was the subject of older brother, Jermaine's rant, "A Word To The Badd", due to a disagreement they had, and he was upset with him that he nearly evicted him and his family from Hayvnhurst if their mother hadn't intervened. I think the other things that made Michael the man that he was especially when his father had an affair with Cheryl Tarrell, which resulted in the birth of his estranged half-sister, Joh'Vonnie, who stated in an interview that she tried to reach to Michael at family gathering at Neverland ranch back in 2003, but was deeply hurt when he rejected her, for the reason she was the product of the affair between her mother and their father. As we all know, Michael wasn't a weakling he was just a person who could be pushed so far and he had fight back just the situation with the Arvizo family, who tried to shake him door way of blackmail and extortion.
Michael was one of the kindest people u would want to meet, and get know; however, the media kept focusing on the negative aspects of his private and personal life rather than the positive aspects of his private and personal life, and it's a doggone shame. The media most of their lives bullying him for whatever reason they could think of whether it's his love life, paternity of his children,
of who he's sleeping with. Like a true survivor, Michael hung in there.
