It's not entirely news that Michael Jackson will probably never live again in the US - his lawyer had already said as much - but now his Dad (and Kevin Federline's business partner) Joe Jackson has confirmed the move, and it seems that some American's squeamish about a forty year old bloke having pyjama parties with strangers' kids in his bedroom is to blame:

"They didn't treat him right here. I know if I was him, I wouldn't come back," his father said

Apparently, Joe is keen to get his belt out and whoop the whole Jackson clan back into making music together:

However, the elder Jackson said he expects Michael to return to his music career — and hopes it would include a reunion with his brothers.

"I'm trying to motivate them to go ahead and do this record," he said of his other sons. "They want to do it, but they're too slow. They'd rather do it with Michael."

We bet they would - on past form it'd be Michael who got the brunt of the beatings when things went bad.
