Joe Jackson Denies Abusing His Son

In an interview Monday night on "Larry King Live," Joe Jackson, the father of Michael Jackson , refuted longstanding claims that he had abused his son, and said that he never made any mistakes raising him.

"[I] never, never have. ... I raised him just like you would raise your kids, you know?" Jackson told King. "But harm Michael, for what? I have no reason. That's my son. I loved him and I still love him." , MTV.com reports.

Michael Jackson's father denied allegations that he'd physically abused the pop star when he was a child (though he admitted his son had barred him from his life) and that he was hoping to take Michael's three children on tour next year as the Jackson 3. Responding to the abuse claim, Joe Jackson said, "That's a bunch of bull-s....I raised him just like you would raise your kids, you know? But harm Michael, for what? I have no reason. That's my son. I loved him and I still love him." He called rumors of a Jackson 3 tour "a bunch of jive": "I'm not encouraging them to do nothing," he said. "They have to be what they are, kids at the moment." , Entertainment Weekly reports.

Meanwhile, Jackson family sources tell us there's a bitter dispute over who will call the shots in probating Michael Jackson's will.

Katherine Jackson has hired an attorney -- Londell McMillan -- and we're told it's a done deal that McMillan will challenge the co-executors Michael selected. We're told most of the brothers -- Randy the notable exception -- are angry that McMillan has asserted himself by challenging co-executors John Branca and John McClain, both long time advisers and friends of M.J. ,TMZ.com reports.
