LOS ANGELES, June 13 (UPI) -- Michael Jackson's father, Joe, says he blames mother Katherine for Michael's death.

Joe Jackson said he and his wife Katherine argued about Michael's physical condition before the "King of Pop's" death, saying Michael was ""looking kinda funny and and frail." Joe allegedly asked Katherine to check up on Michael and "keep him cheered up," but Joe says Katherine declined, citing Michael's privacy, TMZ reported Sunday.

"I said this would have never happened if you had went and been with him," Joe said to Katherine after Michael died.

Joe, who was cut out of Michael's will, is allegedly fighting for an allowance of the estate, TMZ said.
