Katherine Jackson has made it clear that she will defend Michael Jackson’s honor until her last breath. She is still adamant that her son never molested any children. The mother of the famous Jackson tribe went on the Today Show this morning (May 4), where Matt Lauer asked her if she wanted to clear up anything about her son’s life.

“As far as Michael being a child molester...that's the biggest lie ever been told,” she responded, according to TMZ.

Mama M.J. said she read an article after Michael died, in which the 1993 accuser allegedly admitted he made up the story against Michael.

When Lauer asked why M.J. forked over a settlement with the boy, Katherine said, "His lawyers told him he should just pay the money. They thought that just paying the money and shutting the people up would be the right thing to do." Katherine said she asked M.J. why he made the move, and he told her, "I didn't want to do it either, mother. I wanted to fight it because I knew it wasn't the truth."

Let's hope the media will let M.J. rest in peace.
