Michael Jackson's Mother and Children Share Memories
"He loved children," she says. "Michael would always say: 'Mother, why are they accusing me of something I love the most? I'd rather slit my own wrists than to hurt a child.'"
The trial seemed to take its toll on Michael, his mother says, changing who he was as a person.
"He used to trust people," Katherine says. "And after that trial, he didn't trust anybody. ... He would always tell me: 'Mother, I don't trust anybody. The only person I trust is you.'"
