Sidebar: Jackson Family Civil Suit in Closing Arguments

Comprehensive Guide to Latest on Katherine JacksonWe haven’t talked about this much here but I am assuming some of my trial junkies are watching closing arguments on HLN.  Here is my understanding of what the Jackson attorneys must prove.

1) That AEG hired Dr. Murray. If the jury cannot agree on this point it is all over for the case. AEG denies hiring Dr. Murray and claims that Michael himself who hired Dr. Murray personally. AEG says that Michael paid Dr. Murray personally with money AEG advanced to Michael. AEG sent an email to Dr. Murray reminding him that AEG “pays his salary” ; however, AEG seems to say that email refers to payments to Michael that ultimately funneled down to Dr. Murray.

According to Prince Jackson’s twitter their school was just finishing up finals.

Here’s hoping she feels much better soon.

Catching Up on Jackson Family Drama

While I’ve been trying to ignore the Internet to avoid being spoiled on Olympic gymnastics, apparently the Jackson family drama has rolled on without me. Katherine, Janet and Jermaine have made some public statements while I’ve been watching Law and Order marathons and trying to shake this summer cold or whatever it is ailing me. So here is what you might have missed.

Katherine went back to court to have guardianship of the kids reinstated. She is now co-guardian with TJ. They have another court appearance on August 22 regarding keeping TJ on as a permanent guardian. It seems everyone is fine with that.  In order to get guardianship back, Katherine had to make a statement to the court regarding her disappearance. In a 180 degree turn from what I call “the hostage video” she made surrounded by her kidnappers for ABC, Katherine now admits she was tricked into going to Tuscon, that she thought she was going to New Mexico to see her sons in concert, and that her phone and iPad were taken from her. She also stated for the court record that her phone in her room would not dial out and that despite repeated requests to have the TV fixed, she had no picture for her entire stay. Apparently she did have sound at some point and heard a news report that she was missing which is what prompted her to insist on calling home.  In other words, everything I’ve been saying here has now been corroborated by KJ herself.

But that doesn’t mean the kidnappers the kind siblings who took their mother to the spa are admitting guilt or doing the right thing. Jermaine Jackson is trying to half step over to the other side of the drama by rescinding his name from THE LETTER. He’s not admitting that the letter was full of lies even though the stroke lie has been proven false publicly. He’s not saying that he doesn’t think the lawyers are evil people trying to kill his grandmother.  He’s just saying he wishes he had not said all those things in public. He also says he is doing this because Jaafar “stun gun” Jackson is sad he can’t go to Grandma’s house. So Jermaine is extending an olive branch to try to get access to the house again. Good luck with that.

And then there were three. An attorney for Janet Jackson released a statement stating that Janet, Rebbie and Randy will continued to disrupt the family as much as possible attempt to have the will invalidated. But they swear it has nothing to do with money. Their attorney stated that,
“It is important to stress that Janet, Randy and Rebbie have questioned the validity of the will with no financial motive whatsoever – the stand to gain nothing financially by a finding that the will is invalid. What will be gained by a finding of invalidity is that the executors will be replaced and the estate and the guardianship will be managed in a manner that is in the best interests of the children, which is what Michael wanted.”

So now it is about the best interest of the children. I thought it was because the evil lawyers were trying to kill Katherine. Are we not concerned that Katherine’s life is on the line anymore? What about evil Trevor who they claim is beating poor Katherine and making her live on stale bread and tap water? Should we be expecting new stories on how Paris is forced to wear last year’s fashions and eat produce that is not organic? I can hardly wait for the news on the poor deprived and mistreated children. I suppose I should keep my eye on X17 for the next batch of tall tales from the Jackson 3.

Randy Jackson Done Lost His Everlovin’ Mind, Y’all

Randy has been tweeting for the past few days like a mad man. In his latest twitlonger complete with number points, he claims that the Estate is trying to isolate Katherine from her family so that they can kill her.  Also that the estate is using the media to spin the family drama. Oh and also that the bad people around Michael are the ones the estate is trying to keep around Katherine.  Um Randy, that would be you. You and your three siblings are the ones that took Katherine to the Arizona desert and holed her up with no contact with the outside world for ten days. You are the one that sent the quackadoodle doctor out to diagnose Katherine with…the need for isolation away from the children she is raising. You are the one feeding stories to X17 that make no sense and that no one believes. That’s all on you, Randy. If anyone is trying to kill your mother, it’s YOU.

Meanwhile, thanks to you kidnapping your mother, Randy, an investigator has been sent to the school to pull Paris, Prince and Blanket out of their classes to be individually interviewed about who they feel comfortable living with so the judge can decide what to do about Katherine since you finally got her home after a nearly day long ride presumably on a horse and buggy across three states. Good job, Randy. Now the kids school day isn’t even protected from this ridiculous family feud.


I never thought I’d be typing this, Randy, but listen to La Toya and just shut up. She is right, you are dragging the Jackson family name through the mud. You should be aware that your family name was not particularly pristine before you began this vendetta. Y’all get all excited that Paris tweets that her grandmother is missing, and yet how many stories have you put on  X17? How many Good Morning America interviews have you granted?  Newflash: your spin on this story isn’t flying with anyone.

It seems that Katherine has agreed to let TJ do the heavy lifting when it comes to raising the kids and Katherine can be a co-guardian in charge of being a nurturing grandmother. Why does that bother you so much Randy? All the parties involved are in agreement, what’s it to you?

In other news, your ridiculous stunts have now made there was to Conrad Murray in solitary confinement. He’s added Katherine to his visitation list because he thinks she might need a friend.  Sure, he sorta kinda killed Michael, but he’s still a step above you. You are trying to kill your own mother. So go back and read your twitlonger again, Randy and replace the names of all the people you are accusing  of things, with your own name.

Katherine Jackson Is Back Home With Prince, Paris and Blanket

Last night after midnight, Paris tweeted that her grandma was still not home.  Marlon was also tweeting that he still had no idea where his mother was and why she was not home at 12:39 a.m. At 2:51 a.m. Paris tweeted that Katherine was home and that she has been up for 23 hours. Then Prince Michael posted the following on twitter at 4:31 a.m.

I would first like to start off this tweet by thanking the fans that have always stood by me and my family, my dad really appreciated your support and I still treasure it to this day. As I am sure everyone is well aware of the events that have been going on. I have been holding off on backing up my sister and her tweets avidly because I was waiting for the time to reveal my side. As long as I can remember my dad had repeatedly warned me of certain people and their ways. Although I am happy my grandma was returned, after speaking with her I realized how misguided and how badly she was lied to. I’m really angry and hurt. The following image is of a group chat I had started to several family members. This group text message I had started was replied to but they didn’t know that I could see the responses. For this whole time, they denied us contact to our grandmother. “If you continue with your lies I will continue with the truth”

-Michael Jackson Jr.

 There are a lot of interesting things about this tweet. First, notice Rebbie is “Aunt Rebbie”  but Aunt Janet is “Janet Jackson.”  It also seems that Prince was waiting on his grandmother to get home and talk to her before he started putting people on blast. He makes a point to show us that Janet, in particular, is behind separating Katherine from MJ’s kids. What on earth is going on with Janet? While Randy and Jermaine have a history of this sort of thing, Janet’s behavior is surprising.  Also, as a former teacher, I’d like to give Prince an ‘A’ for making his point with clarity and a lack of escalating language.  Also, since when does Prince call himself “Michael Jackson Jr.?”  Part of me wonders if this was written by a 15 year old boy. If so, he seems quite intelligent.

It is obvious that the kids were kept from Katherine just as the siblings not in on the nefarious plot were.  Paris says she is going into hibernation due to lack of sleep, and who can blame her. I hope Prince continues to keep us updated from the Calabasas camp as the story continues…

UPDATE: Suspicions continue over whether Prince actually sent that tweet. It was sent shortly after Paris went to bed (4:02 a.m.).  Just after 2 pm today, the tweet was removed. According to Alan Duke who is a CNN reporter with close ties to the story, a tweet was then put up claiming Prince’s account was hacked. Then that tweet was also removed. WHATEVER DOES IT ALL MEAN? :)

Breaking NEWS: The kids are back on their twatters! Prince has regained his account and put the above statement and photo back on his timeline. This is great news for me because they give the best dirt!

The Uno Picture WAS Taken at Miraval

I can verify that the Uno picture was in fact taken at Miraval Resort. It looks like Katherine was in Villa 16. You can match up the lattice work behind Rebbie’s kid. I research this because a commenter suggested that Katherine could have been brought to Miraval today for the news conference.  The villa rents for about $2,000 a night and is over 3,000 square feet inside with a large area of about the same square footage outside. This explains why the marketing director for Miraval was there. Clearly they worked a publicity deal to pay the nearly $20K in costs. I wonder if they had the TVs taken out to keep Katherine from seeing the news.

Click throught to see Uno Picture.

Also Alan Duke was on Dr. Drew tonight around 9:30 p.m. EST and Katherine was “still traveling” home. I wonder if she will be home by the time I wake up tomorrow.

Katherine Jackson’s Complete Statement to ABC News

Earlier today, ABC News filmed this statement at Miraval Spa in Tuscon (As opposed to where Marlon was told she was, Canyon Ranch why did Randy lie to Marlon?) The video will air tonight at 11:35 on Nightline. No questions were allowed by the Nightline crew. She was reading a written statement. Probably written by Randy, or possibly a twelve year old, based on the text below.

Hello, I’m Katherine Jackson, and there are rumors going around about me that I have been kidnapped and held against my will.

I am here today to let everybody know that I am fine and I am here with my children, and my children would never do a thing to me like that, holding me against my will. It’s very stupid for people to think that.

But anyway, I am devastated that while I’ve been away, that my children, my grandchildren, have been taken away from me, and I’m coming home to see about that, also.

So I spoke to my grandson, TJ, last night, that I left there to be in charge of my children — and I never leave home without leaving them with instructions of who to stay there with them, the nanny and all of them — and someone had let go the cook, the nanny, and also the housekeepers. I don’t know who did that but they don’t have that power and they shouldn’t have done it.

And now, the people are saying they are there with nothing to eat. I am sure they have something to eat but it’s probably not healthy because the cook is not there.


But since I have also been away, my guardianship, which I just said, my children, have been taken away from me, my guardianship has been taken away from me. And, but, I spoke to my grandson TJ and also I spoke to Prince and Paris last night and told him I would be home today and they’re waiting for me to come.

And I told him it wasn’t necessary for him to go down and sign for guardianship. … I don’t know who instructed him to do that — but that’s what, but he wanted me to come home before that happened, but the ruling in court today was about the guardianship and I think it was based on a bunch of lies, but I have a good idea who’s doing that and who’s behind that.

But I am grateful for my children that they saw that I needed rest and they wanted to take me away for a while, just a short vacation and rest up. But one thing I have to say … that I’m here at Miraval. They have taken good care of me and have made sure that I got the rest that I needed.

One reason I haven’t called is I just gave up my phone and I didn’t want to have any phone calls while I was here.

My assistant, Janice Smith, have been calling back home to see how things were going and she had been keeping in contact with my nephew, I mean my grandson, and he says everything is going fine. But I was still thinking about the children and I still worry about them, but they are fine.

Before I left, as I said, I put everything in order with the appropriate people to take care of my children for me and it’s really bad to hear that what’s going on at home, and the children have been taken away — but I know that … I’ll get there in time to get them back. And after I finish this, I will be on my way home.

I have to thank Miraval again for taking very good care of me and making sure I got good rest.
We don’t get much — we saw an electric show because it was lightening and we saw a rainbow.
I had a very good time here — and if anyone wants to rest I think they should come here.

Because there’s a lot of lies that have been put out there and I am going home to straighten them out and this kind of stuff doesn’t make sense. So I want to say goodbye and I am on my way home.

Still no confirmation yet, that Katherine has arrived back in LA.

Katherine Jackson Slowly Inching Home While Everyone Gets Their Stories Straight

Is Katherine Jackson walking home from Tuscon? If I recall correctly, this whole fiasco began when Randy sent some quack doctor to her home and told her she needed to fly to Tuscon to rest rather than taking an RV.  This morning, Randy said she was on her way home. How long does it take to get home from Tuscon?

Alan Duke just told us on HLN that Katherine has a cell phone and is in a car riding home and is talking to people. She is realizing for the first time that she was the focus of international news and seems shocked and confused. Perry Sanders, who is Katherine’s lawyer, says he spoke to her in the car and she sounds fine and dandy and this is all a big misunderstanding. Sanders doesn’t seem have any problem with Katherine up and leaving the kids and just brushes everything off as a non-event. Sanders says Katherine is totally competent to raise the kids. Sanders met with Janet and Jermaine in Tuscon yesterday but he was not able to see Katherine.  He doesn’t seem to think that is weird, She was just on a vacation. Nothing to see here.

Marlon told HLN he had a plane on standby to get her home today. She talked to all her kids this morning. Marlon said Randy told him his mother was at Canyon Ranch in Tuscon and he later found out that was not the real location. Apparently someone from Team Randy decided to drive the 82 year old five hundred miles home rather than let Marlon fly her in.

TMZ is reporting that the phone call that distressed TJ last night occurred at 2 a.m. and again at 4 a.m.  and that Katherine was demanding Trent and the entire security team be fired and replaced by Janet’s security team. The biggest mystery of all is why Janet seems to be on the wrong side of this war.  Maybe Janet’s finances are not what we believe them to be? It just seems to me she would be on Jackie’s side. And Jackie is reportedly FURIOUS at Team Randy.  TJ claims that Katherine sounded drugged and was not speaking in a normal fashion.  So she was up all night drunk dialing people on whatever they have her doped up on and today she is just fine and healthy in a car?

In other news, we knew it was bound to happen, Joe has arrived at MJ’s kid’s house. TMZ says he was seen there yesterday and today. I guess he is waiting to see if and when Katherine will turn up. It seems odd to me that Katherine is not home yet, even driving. It’s about an eight hour drive. Again, why would you put your mother in a car, when a plane is all gassed up and ready to go? Are they waiting for the drugs to wear off? Speaking of drugs, Joe apparently had some sort of medical professional pay him a visit at the kids house. Wonder what his problem is? Good Grief.

Meanwhile, La Toya, who is in LA, is tweeting about the Colorado shooting, and the earthquake in Marina Del Ray and her usual “love, light and positivity” stuff she always tweets. I picture her with her fingers in her ears singing “la la la la la I’m not listening la la la la”.

This just in, Katherine Jackson called into ABC to let us know she is just fine and dandy. She told ABC News “There are rumors going around about me that I have been kidnapped, I am here today to let everybody to know that I am good and fine. My children would never do anything to me like that.” She says she “gave up her phone and didn’t want to have any phone calls.”  And that she is “devastated that while I’ve been away, my grandchildren have been taken away from me, and I’m coming home.”

So twelve hours or so after Randy says she is on the way home, she is still “coming home” I ask again, is she walking? hitchhiking? riding in an ox cart? What?

And yes Katherine, it makes total sense to go on vacation without telling the kids you are legally responsible for or any of your children who were not in on the kidnapping vacation that you are leaving, or where you are going, or how long you will be gone for. When you abandon children in your care for days and days, they get taken away from you. You’ll be lucky to be allowed in the house, as it doesn’t belong to you, it belongs to the estate, which is essentially the kids. You may have to shack up with Joe in Vegas or something until you get clean from whatever it is you have been on during this time. You did have one of Michael’s crooked doctors caring for you. Jackie needs to take you to your real doctor and demand a drug screening.

And that’s the latest episode of All Katherine’s Children. Thoughts?

Katherine Jackson Has Been Stripped of Guardianship

A Los Angeles judge just granted TJ Jackson temporary guardianship of MJ’s three kids. The judge stated that through no wrongdoing on Katherine’s part she is unable to perform her duties.  The judge stated that Katherine was prevented from her duties by intentional acts from third parties. He also suggested that TJ needs to file for permanent custody. The judge stated that Diana Ross and Debbie Rowe should be notified. The kids are not to be taken from the state of California. The estate was told to give TJ access to funds to care for the kids and provide  for their security.

TJ choked up when testifying before the court about an odd phone call with his grandmother last night. According to TMZ:

TJ’s lawyer said TJ had a strange phone call with Katherine yesterday and TJ said, “I’ve never heard my grandmother talk like that.” TJ added, “She wasn’t sharp. The pauses, choice of vocabulary … she has not used certain phrases like that before.” TJ thought she was talking in code. 

It looks like Randy deciding to rush Katherine back home was a day late and a dollar short. Team Randy needs to have a seat and accept the fact they are not going to get at MJ’s money no matter how hard they try. The kids were in school and did not attend the hearing. Their lawyer fully supported the petition to make TJ their legal guardian.

Marlon Has A Breakdown On National TV, Tito Has a Change of Heart, And Randy Seeks an Ally in Al Sharpton

Marlon, Tito and Jackie, or as I like to call them, the more stable Jackson siblings were doing an interview with The Insider tonight when Marlon broke down and left the set over the situation with his mother. I find it odd that these three have not had any contact with their mother either. And Marlon acts like he doesn’t know who is behind all this (Randy and Jermaine). 

Meanwhile, Randy tried to find solace in the arms of the Reverend Al Sharpton on MSNBC tonight claiming the will is forged.  There are so many problems with Randy’s story. First the will is not forged there were several witnesses to the will. Secondly even if he got it thrown out every other iteration of the will has the same executor and none of the siblings are mentioned in any iteration. These siblings have to understand they are not getting Michaels money and are only causing damage to the family. Radar Online refutes all of Randy’s bizarre claims from the interview here.

Tito, who was the fifth signature on the letter from Randy, Jermaine, Janet and Rebbie has now completely reversed himself saying he does not want to be a part of this nefarious plot anymore, according to TMZ.


TMZ has more details on the fight inside the house yesterday:

Our sources say at one point Janet tried to grab a resistant Paris’ cell phone, a scuffle ensued and Janet slapped the teenager, screaming, “You’re a spoiled little bitch!” We’re told Paris fired back with her own slap and told Janet, “This is our house. Not the Jackson family house. Get the f**k out!”

At the same time, we’re told Trent Jackson, who was at the house, tried to stop an aggressive Randy and Jermaine. We’re told Trent put Randy in a headlock and punched Jermaine in the mouth.

I’ve clearly chosen a side and I am liking this Trent Jackson more and more. Tito’s reversal is probably coming from talking to his son, TJ who is trying to look out for MJ’s kids by taking temporary legal guardianship while Katherine is kidnapped by her greeding scumbucket children enjoying a luxurious Uno playing vacation in isolation.

Radar Online, says that the attorney for MJ’s kids is filing to strip Katherine of guardianship of the kids. What that will mean is unclear. MJ’s will stipulates the kids go to Diana Ross if Katherine is unable to perform the role, yet TJ is offering to take responsibility. The kids being uprooted and sent to Diana would not seem to be in their best interest.

The Fight at the Jackson House Was Between Janet and Paris!

It seems I was right about the whole Uno thing being a ruse for the Jackson siblings trying to hide out Katherine in Arizona. There is footage on HLN this morning showing Janet screeching into the driveway yesterday afternoon and going after Paris trying to take her cell phone.  Janet is insisting that Paris stop tweeting family business on the Internet. Paris did not give up her phone and all of MJs kids had to temporarily be removed to a safe location to keep them safe from Janet and others. It appears Jermaine and Randy were there with Janet.

From Radar Online:

“Following the incident, it was learned that one of the family members who was part of the ambush admitted that a plan has been in place for the last three years to remove Katherine Jackson from her home and her beloved grandchildren. Prince, Paris, and Blanket Jackson have not heard from their grandmother since she left their home nine days ago to attend a series of her sons’ concerts on their Unity Tour. She never made the shows. Despite efforts to interview Katherine Jackson at her current location in Arizona yesterday, Los Angeles County Sheriffs confirmed that they were denied access to Mrs. Jackson by security for one of her children.”

Janet, Jermaine and Randy have been barred from the family home.  Paris and the kids have contacted their lawyer/guardian ad litem  who may be going to see a judge today for a protection order.  Meanwhile, Paris just tweeted “9 days and counting… so help me god i will make whoever did this pay.”

Looks like we will have another full day of drama. I have lots to do today but will try to keep you updated. ROL is claiming that they wanted to bring the kids to Katherine for pictures that they could put up on Randy’s favorite website (X17).

See surveillance video after the jump.

Why the heck are Janet and Randy video taping the kids with their phones? This whole thing is crazy!

It looks like Tito’s son TJ age 34 is trying to file papers to get temporary guardianship. TJ is close with Paris. Let’s hope that works.

It is now clear that Janet, Jermaine and Randy waited for Prince, Paris and Blanket to get out of school, and followed them home to ride in behind them to get inside the gate.  Between that and all the slanderous things they are saying about Trent over on X17 and the ugly things they are saying about Paris there, their behavior is despicable.

Comprehensive Guide to Latest on Katherine Jackson

I’m barely keeping my head above water with all the news on Katherine Jackson. Here is a LONG synopsis as of about an hour ago (editing etc takes time and things are ever changing) New info is edited in using red font, check back for updates in red.
Let’s look at the timeline as reported by 8 New Now a Las Vegas affiliate of CBS who has a statement from Sandy Ribera, the Jackson family attorney. Again it raises more questions than it answers. Quotes are in italics with my thoughts following.
Family attorney Sandy Ribera said earlier that Mrs. Jackson was preparing for a road trip in a recreational vehicle her son had bought for her. She was heading to New Mexico to watch her other sons perform in their Unity Tour. Before leaving on her road trip, a doctor was brought to her home and told her that her longtime physician had sent him. Jackson agreed to meet with the doctor, who then ordered (her) to fly to her sons’ concert, instead of drive because of health concerns.
Okay, where was the security? Who the hell is between Kathrine Jackson and random “doctor” (Dr. Allan Metzger) showing up to the house saying he was sent by her doctor. Why didn’t security check this out since clearly they were not expecting him. Why would flying be preferable? You can get off an RV and get medical help much faster than you can on a plane. I’m assuming Katherine doesn’t fly commercial, so who chartered the plane? Apparently, the RV was to be driven by Trent Jackson, the nephew who filed the missing person report and who is now accused of elder abuse—-see more at end of this article.
She decided to follow the doctor’s orders and left Michael’s children, of whom she is the legal guardian, in the care of an adult grandson.
So Katherine says, “Hey grandson, watch these three kids for me, I’m going to fly off to a concert, I’m sure they might like to go too, but let me just leave them here with you for now. See ya on the flipside. Also could you tell them I am leaving? I don’t want to go through the whole ordeal of them wanting to go with me. Thanks a bunch.”

After not hearing from Katherine Jackson for more than 24 hours, which the family lawyer said is unusual for the woman, her grandchildren became concerned for her welfare. Jackson did not attend any of her sons’ concerts, which she had said she was looking forward to attending, the lawyer said.
“Prince, Paris, and Blanket are the light of Katherine Jackson’s life, as she is to those children,” Ribera said in the statement. “Out of concern for Mrs. Jackson’s well-being and in an effort to ensure her being safely reunited with her grandchildren as soon as possible, a report was filed on Saturday with the Sheriff’s Department who will be investigating this matter.”
Even if the story makes sense to you thus far. Grandma never made it to the rock concert. A concert tour that ends a few days later in Los Angeles a mere car ride from the Jackson compound. It would seem that if Grandma was having health issues that restricted her from riding in an RV, that the better choice would be to wait until the tour arrives on her front door.  But that is not what happened.
Enter random nephew (not the adult grandson who is in charge of the kids, it seems but another family member) who files a missing person report.  Add in frantic tweets from Paris that she hasn’t heard from Grandma in a week. The police are investigating and suddenly Jermaine decides to let people know that Grandma’s “doctor”,who as it turns out was not sent by her real doctor, has her on bed rest “away from phones and computers” but that “no one has been blocked from speaking to her.”
I see… and yet…
Michael Jackson’s children told the attorney that they were told by other family members who were believed to be with Katherine Jackson that she was not available to speak with them.
Edit to add this from a CNN report that says Janet was supporting Rebbie in not letting Paris talk to Katherine. “When Paris Jackson called her aunts Rebbie and Janet over the past several days to find her grandmother, she was told each time she could not speak to her, Ribera said.”
The office of Katherine Jackson’s longtime physician confirmed to the lawyer that a doctor had not been sent from that office. According to the lawyer, the doctor who went to Katherine Jackson’s home has been publicly reprimanded by the California Medical Board for fraudulent activities and has ties to Dr. Conrad Murray, the doctor who was sentenced to four years in prison on involuntary manslaughter for Michael Jackson’s death.
So a doctor connected to the trial of Conrad Murray who lied about being referred to her by her real doctor is now treating Kathrine Jackson in seclusion at an undisclosed treatment facility in Arizona. But everything is fine and dandy?  This is supposed to make sense to people and cause them not to worry?
The only reports provided to the family have been conflicting and confusing, especially those pertaining to the status of Katherine Jackson’s health, the lawyer said. When Michael Jackson’s children last saw their grandmother on July 15 she was in great health physically as well as mentally, Ribera said.
Yet, she is suddenly unable to attend the concerts she allegedly was excited to go to, so much so that she could not wait a week to see the show in her own hometown, and yet has been unable not just to attend the concerts but call the children she has  legal guardianship of, and everything is fine and dandy?
Even more curious is that reports today say that Paris Jackson was at the Unity concert where Jermaine, Jackie, Tito, and Marlon were performing at the Greek Theater in LA. Just last week Paris called Randy a liar regarding statements he made about Katherine’s health. (edited to add: Randy was not at the concert.) Jermaine continues to tweet everything is fine, and yesterday Paris retweeted Jermaine’s statement.   Edited to change the venue where Paris attended the concert from Vegas to the Greek Theater in LA. Which makes me feel slightly better about her care.
It is unclear whether the “grandson in charge of the kids” and “the nephew who filed the report” are both terms referring to the same person. However, X17  has an exclusive report this morning saying that charges have been filed against “the nephew”  Trent (I assume last name Jackson) regarding elder abuse. It seems the Jermaine/Randy camp is now saying they removed their mother from her home and took her away from the kids to file these charges against Trent.  Trent apparently lives in the Jackson home and is a caregiver for Kathrine.  According to X17:

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.”
So, they were trying to get Katherine away from an abusive nephew, by leaving him in charge of Michael’s kids. Oh I totally understand all this now.

“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.

HLN is reporting that the lawyer is bringing in the FBI because the LA Sheriff was denied access to Katherine (apparently in Arizona) by Randy Jackson’s security guards. This was apparently prior to the “phone call” that the police say they had with Katherine.

WTF?

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.
