One of the embattled star's brothers says he “"wouldn't be surprised"...

MICHAEL JACKSON brother has said he “”wouldn’t be surprised” if the singer decided to leave the US following his child abuse trial.

The singer has been cleared of ten charges against him after a trial which has lasted much of the year.

Speaking in the US, his brother Jermaine said that Michael is “at peace”, but hinted that a move outside of America could be possible.

He told CNN: “Michael is recovering, but it’s a time (to) rejoice for the family…we’ve always had a love for other places outside the US.”

Jermaine said that the singer had no concrete plans, except to recover from the trial. He continued: “I’m pretty sure he’s just looking to rest. That’s what’s most important, to rest and get his mind back and focus on being a person – nothing about doing this or doing that but just resting.”
