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.

What’s Wrong With This Picture? MJ’s Kids

Um, for the clueless, From L to R Prince Michael, Bodyguard, Blanket…

I continue to be worried about Michael Jackson’s kids. Especially, Blanket.  He is perpetually sad and nervous in pictures.  In this one he looks like he has a black eye. Can no one brush his hair? Or Prince’s hair? Buy them some decent clothes? This distresses me.

Michael Jackson’s Kids Shilling an Energy Drink

I pulled this picture off the Daily Mail today and was sad to see that Blanket Jackson has this miserable expression in every picture. There are many pictures of MJ’s kids shilling for this new ginseng drink, MrPink and each one Blanket looks either sad or exhausted or both. What’s wrong with Blanket, y’all? This is not the first time I’ve noticed this about Blanket. It seems to be his expression in lots of pictures in the media.

In other news, I am dying to know who the owners of MrPink are. Their website doesn’t really say but they are getting a lot of publicity lately. They are the official drink of the Dodgers and have managed to get lots of celebrity endorsements. Clearly it is someone with deep pockets, but who? Anyone know?

Update: Chris Stark has investigated and believes that MrPink is in fact owned by the Michael Jackson estate. See Comments below.

The Jackson Family Twitter Tree, An Exercise in Boredom

So I was looking at Randy Jackson’s twitter this morning and realized he was suddenly only following one person, guess who? Janet. Since Tito jumped ship from the kidnapping team, Tito is the only member of Team Greed who is following any non-kidnapper siblings. Randy and Janet only follow each other. Tito and Jackie follow all the siblings with an active twitter.  Marlon does not follow Jermaine. La Toya doesn’t follow Janet, Randy, or Tito.  Paris doesn’t follow, Randy, Jermaine, Janet, or Jackie. Prince doesn’t follow Marlon, which may just be an oversight, trust me it’s hard to keep them all straight and see who is missing from whose follow page.

Anyway, I was in need of a mind distracting puzzle and this is what I chose. Looks like Randy and Janet are likely the final two members of the rebel militia. Click through to see who follows and doesn’t follow who on twitter. Note: The Jacksons followed by each person are listed in order of most recently added to the first one added.


As of today,

Randy Jackson follows one person: Janet Jackson.

Jermaine Jackson follows 84 people and  5 Jacksons: Jermaine Jackson II, big space, Janet Jackson, Jackie Jackson, Randy Jackson, Tito Jackson.

Janet Jackson follows 18 people but only one Jackson: Randy.

Rebbie Jackson  No verified account

Tito Jackson follows 13 people and 10 Jacksons: Jermaine Jackson, Taj Jackson, TJ Jackson, Genevieve Jackson, Jackie Jackson, Marlon Jackson, Randy Jackson, Janet Jackson, Latoya Jackson, Siggy Jackson.

Jackie Jackson follows 967 people and 18 Jacksons: Janet Jackson, big space Jermajesty Jackson, Brandi Jackson, Siggy Jackson, Prince Jackson, Paris Jackson, big space  Marlon Jackson, big space Randy Jackson, La Toya Jackson, Jermaine Jackson, Tito Jackson, Donte Jackson, Jermaine Jackson II, Randy Jackson Jr, Jaafar Jackson, Genevieve Jackson, TJ Jackson, Taj Jackson.

Marlon Jackson follows 26 people and 12 Jacksons: La Toya Jackson, Taryll Jackson, Donte Jackson, Randy Jackson Jr, Jaafar Jackson, Jackie Jackson, Janet Jackson, Randy Jackson, Genevieve Jackson, Tito Jackson, Taj Jackson, TJ Jackson.

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’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?
