Jermaine Jackson confirms book on Michael

Jermaine Jackson is writing a book about his brother Michael, it has been announced.

The musician is penning a set of memoirs titled You Are Not Alone, Michael: Through A Brother's Eyes. The book will chart The Jackson 5's rise to fame and Michael's life story, including the circumstances surrounding his death in 2009 aged 50.

He said: "We don't want Michael's life - or death - to be an eternal mystery. This is the truth as we know it.

"I have read so much about what people think they know about Michael, but this is about what really happened. I hope to make sense of the occasions when the outside world struggled to understand my brother's world."

The 56-year-old, who has previously slammed the press for its portrayal of his late sibling, explained that he hoped the book would show his brother in a new light.

"By sitting down and sharing memories, I hope his millions of fans will see him anew, and that those who have not been so kind will find room for more compassion," he added.

"Everyone has said it all about Michael and us. They cannot say anything more. Now it is our turn. We cannot bring our brother back but we can ensure his legacy is never forgotten in a book that commemorates his life - and says the things he never got the chance to say."

The book will be published this autumn by Harper Collins in the UK and Touchstone in the US.
