Report: Jackson Siblings Staged Neverland Intervention

A few weeks ago we heard that a couple of Michael Jackson's family members tried to stop him from using drugs while he was staying in Las Vegas in 2006, but now Tito Jackson has told Britain's Daily Mirror that there was an intervention at Neverland, as well.

"We had to act," Tito told the paper. "It was me, my sisters Janet, Rebbie and La Toya and my brothers, Jackie and Randy."

The siblings had to "bust right into the house," Tito said. "He was surprised to see us, to say the least.

"We went into one of his private rooms and had a discussion with him. Some of us were crying. We kept asking him if it was true what we had heard that he was using drugs," Tito continues. "He kept denying it. He said we were over-reacting. We also spoke to a doctor and he assured us it was not the situation. He said he was there to make sure Michael was healthy."

From what we've learned recently, that may have not been the case.

Tito said Michael tried very hard to convince his family that he wasn't using -- and used his security team to keep his loved ones at arm's length.

"We talked about it again and again for hours but we just couldn't get through to him," he says. "After that occasion, we tried many times but his team of people just shut us out, they would not let us close. They literally shut us out."

"In the first few intervention attempts, his staff and security would not let us on the property. They would block the road into Neverland with other vehicles so we couldn't drive in, all kinds of crazy things."

"He deliberately did it away from us. He didn't want his family to know anything about that part of him," he says.

Sounds like the Jacksons were not even close to as surprised as the rest of the world was by the tons of reports of Michael's drug use.

We wish he would have listened.
