The late King Of Pop's brother admits he regrets the recent spat over the singer's will involving their family.
Jermaine Jackson has called for an end to the on-going Jackson family feud over the late pop star's estate.
The brother of the late King Of Pop said it was time for his family to follow the singer's message about "love not war".
"Mistakes have been made and irrational things have been said on both sides in a highly charged emotional environment," Jermaine said.
"It is time for us all to draw a line in the sand and move towards peace, co-operation, love and healing."
The Jackson family hit the headlines last month after Katherine Jackson, Michael's mother and the guardian of his three children, was reported missing.
She was later found to be staying in Arizona with other family members, but her disappearance saw the Jackson family clash in a series of exchanges, some of which took place on Twitter.
In his statement, Jermaine acknowledged events had spiralled "out of control" and withdrew his support of a letter than called for the executors of Michael Jackson's estate to resign.
"I regret that events were ever allowed to reach such a stage," he said. "I regret any distress caused to Prince, Paris and Blanket. That was never, ever the intention of myself, Janet, Rebbie or Randy."
The custody of Michael's children is currently been transferred to the late singer's nephew TJ, son of Tito Jackson.
