It seems that the Jackson family drama is only just beginning now that the late Michael Jackson's will has been finalized. And at the center of all this is his children Paris, Prince, and Blanket, and his elderly mother Katherine.
It all started last week when Michael's daughter Paris made headlines for criticizing the singer's siblings who were allegedly trying to gain sympathy to get their hands on his estate.
Then on Sunday, her grandmother Katherine was reported missing. Shortly after, one of Jackson's brothers posted a
response stating that Katherine was merely "resting" in Arizona, and had
temporarily cut-off contact with her grandchildren currently under her
care. But the crazy doesn't end there.
By Monday, a physical altercation reportedly erupted between two family members, although no arrests were made. Soon after, attorneys for Katherine Jackson released a statement claiming that her children Jermaine, Randy, and Janet have "ambushed" her grandchildren on Monday. Below is the full statement, posted on Radar Online:
Yesterday afternoon certain Jackson family members ambushed Katherine Jackson's home after their vehicle tore through security gates on the tails of the SUV containing Michael Jackson's children. After exiting their vehicles, Jackson family members ran up to Michael's children as they yelled and began to aggressively grab at the cell phones in their hands. Out of concern for the wellbeing [sic] of Prince, Paris, and Blanket Jackson, the children were forced to temporarily leave their home and taken to a safe location. An altercation ensued shortly thereafter and law enforcement arrived at the scene.
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.
Radar also reports that Katherine's children wanted to separate the teenagers from their cell phones because they wanted Paris to stop tweeting private information about the family.
to get hold of some security camera footage it claims shows Janet
Jackson making a few swipes at Paris' phone in the driveway before
everyone moves inside the house. They've also released quotes from
dubious unnamed sources about what transpired that day, which includes a war of words between Janet Jackson and and her niece Paris.
Janet had reportedly said to Paris "You're a spoiled little bitch!" before Paris retorted, "This is our house. Not the Jackson family house. Get the fuck out!" As for the altercation, this apparently had to do with Katherine's nephew Trent (who's staying at the house) allegedly put Randy Jackson in a headlock and punched Jermaine in the mouth.
As you can imagine, there's probably going to be a ton of updates in the next few days so stay tuned for more. In the meantime, we think the only way to make everyone happy is to give the Jacksons their own reality show. That way, everyone can actually earn their own fortune for once instead of fighting over Michael's will.
