There is a pending investigation with the LA County Sheriff’s Department for elder abuse naming Katherine Jackson as the victim. Those being investigated include her nephew Trent Jackson, estate executors [for Michael Jackson’s estate] John Branca and John McClain, and Jackson family advisors Lowell Henry and Perry Sanders, Jr.
Trent Jackson, the son of Joe Jackson’s brother, currently lives with Katherine Jackson at their Calabasas home. For years, the family has suspected that Trent has been profiting from stories surrounding his cousins … Paris, Prince and Blanket, even selling exclusive photo opportunities and stories to a tabloid website.
According to X17, the Jackson family released the following statement: (Though X17 doesn’t specify who it was made to or when) :
- “This fallacious missing persons report was created by the very person and persons we are trying to protect our mother from. We feel that there is a conspiracy to deflect the attention away from a letter we wrote asking for the resignation of executors, John Branca and John McClain, as well as some of her “advisors” and “caregivers.” We believe there is strong evidence that supports the falsification of documents in order to takeover and profit from the estate of our beloved brother, Michael Jackson. We want answers.
- The only feud that exists is between the Executors of the Estate and this family. This is being handled by the proper authorities and due process will take place.”
“Team Paris” (and it seems they are also on Trent’s side) claim that no such investigation is underway against Trent either for filing the report, or for elder abuse and that “Team Jermaine/Randy”,which also includes Rebbie, Janet and to a lesser extent Tito, is making all this up after the fact. Team Paris also claims that Trent was Katherine’s caregiver well before Michael’s death. This edit is based on twitter and is unsubstantiated.
This is the latest “Exclusive” from X17 many on twitter are saying this is Jackson propoganda and not true. I’m not buying it either. She can’t be around MJs kids but she can be hanging out with family in Arizona playing Uno and eating at the table with Rebbie’s family? Nope. Not buying it. But I’ll post an excerpt from the X17 story for you here you may want to hit the link to see the awkardness of the story, and you decide:
The law enforcement official who interviewed Katherine Jackson for 30 – 45 minutes also spoke with X17 exclusively and gave us a first hand account of the visit:
“When I got there, Katherine Jackson and her family were at the dinner table and had just finished a game of Uno. In fact, their dinner plates were still in front of them. She seemed like she was having a good time. She was happy, safe and healthy. Basically Mrs. Jackson was vacationing with her family here in Arizona.”
We’re told Mrs. Jackson is currently staying with her daughter Rebbie, her granddaughter Stacy and also her great grandson, London. The law enforcement official tells us “this was strictly to check on Mrs. Jackson’s welfare.”
I do believe this latest report from Radar Online because it matches up with CNN/HLN reports.
“There is no elder abuse investigation going on involving Trent Jackson, or the executors of the estate. That report is absolutely false,” Steve Whitmore, spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department tells RadarOnline.com exclusively.
As previously reported, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department detectives were turned away at the house where Katherine Jackson has been staying since because they didn’t have jurisdiction and the Pima County Sheriff’s Department had already determined that Katherine was safe. The detectives were told Katherine was safe, and are on their way back to Los Angeles without having made any contact with her.
Here is a photo X17 is posting that they clearly got from a Jackson family member they claim is proof that Katherine is at “a resort” (as opposed to doctor ordered bed rest, or at Rebbie’s house, both of which claimed previously) happily playing Uno where she is healthy and happy. I’m not buying any of these X17 stories. What are the stack of papers with a pen? Who needs that for Uno? If you want to take a picture of your family playing Uno, do you say “okay everyone hold up some cards so everyone can see what game we are playing? This is all very strange.
X17 is posting exclusives from the Team Jermaine/Randy in AZ.
Radar Online is posting exclusives from Team Paris/Trent/whoever is in LA.
VERY conflicting info between the two sources. One says everything is fine and that Paris knew her Grandma was going out of town.
Other side says it’s been two weeks since Paris has heard from Grandma.
TMZ saying very, very, little (which is really odd) especially about the Trent stuff. Stay tuned.
FIGHT BREAKS OUT AT KATHERINE JACKSON’S HOME! POLICE CALLED! From the LA TIMES:
Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies on Monday responded to reports of a fight at the home of Michael Jackson’s mother, with officials saying the fight involved various family members.
Steve Whitmore, a spokesman for the Sheriff’s Department, said deputies took a report but that no arrests were made.
“Lost Hills deputies responded to a family disturbance at the home of Katherine Jackson in the city of Calabasas. Deputies determined that a physical altercation had occurred, a battery. It involved members on the Jackson family,” Whitmore said.
He did not name those involved.
