In the recordings, obtained by NOTW, Jackson calls his brothers lazy, Janet a tomboy who broke his heart when she got married to James Debarge in 1984, LaToya "Ms. Nice and Nasty," says his mother "disappointed" him and his father was an abusive "mystery man."

"The brothers didn't give me support," Michael says when talking about the Jackson 5. "We'd be working on a TV show or video and they'd be sitting around moaning and groaning but I'd be watching and learning. It takes a talent, but some people are lazy and don't want to develop anything."

As for his father, Jackson revealed how Joe would beat the boys during rehearsals if they made one wrong step. "He would sit in a chair with a belt or a switch and we'd do our performance. And if we messed up he hit you." Jackson reveals that although he was never hit that much while they were rehearsing, he got it worse than anyone outside of the business, for talking back to Joe.

He also reveals, that although his brothers found him to be the "wimpy" one, it was Michael who stood up to Motown chief, Berry Gordy. "They thought I was naive, soft and sweet and wimpy, but I wasn't. It was me who went to Berry Gordy and said, 'We're gonna leave'."
