Joe Jackson Flashes His Pistol in Las VegasPublished by on Thursday, October 18, 2012 at 2:46 pm.
Apparently Jackson family patriarch Joe Jackson isn’t only handy with a belt but a pistol as well… at least that’s what he told an audience in Las Vegas before opening his jacket to flash one.
It all went down at the Tuscany Hotel and Casino in Vegas this weekend where Joe was being honored at the Black Music Awards. Before bringing the famous dad on stage Joe’s good friend Majestik told the crowd a story about Joe confronting Michael Jackson’s bodyguards two weeks before MJ’s death.
Majestik say, during the alleged confrontation, Joe flashed his pistol at the guards and said: “If I hear you all givin’ my son drugs or doing anything illegal with my son … I’m going to kill all of you.”
After hitting the stage, Joe corroborated the story informing the crowd that what Majestik said was true… “Every word he said.”
“I carry a piece everywhere I go,” Joe said before opening his jacket to reveal his piece. “I’m gonna show it to you.”
“I’ve been threatened a lot of times and so I need to be safe.”
Let’s just hope Papa Joe never has to use his tool… After all, the belt was enough to get his family to the top.
