Now that a verdict has finally been reached in Michael Jackson's murder trial, brother Jermaine is ready to talk!

The former Jackson 5 member stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show (dressed just like Ellen!) to speak out on the jury's verdict, and what it meant to the Jackson fam.

When Ellen asked if MJ had been keeping his addiction a secret, Jermaine replied:

    "No, he wasn’t addicted. There was an addiction to Demerol in 2001 in… the early 2000’s but that was because of pain. Even during the autopsy report there was no addiction to any of that. Michael just wanted to sleep. He did not want to die. He trusted the doctor and the negligence and everything. It’s really sad because we lost an incredible person. To see and hear the verdict…My Mother cried and we consoled her and the fans were cheering and everything but it’s not bringing Michael back. We lost a brother."

And what kind of sentence does Jermaine want for Murray?

    "I think the sentencing was very soft. I mean you would probably do more time if you stole. If you went into the hospital and stole cases of Propofol you would probably do more time then. And to give him two years for taking a life. Forget about Michael Jackson but taking anyone’s life. But it happens to be my brother who loved the world and loved people and did so much for the world….He cared about people, human beings, children."

Murray is currently in custody at the Twin Towers Correction Facility in Los Angeles, where he'll remain pending his Nov. 29 sentencing.

Unfortunately for the Jackson fam, the Doctor may be granted just a year of house arrest due to jail overcrowding in California.

Check out Jermaine's full interview today on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
