Janet Jackson is enjoying a cruise in Sardina, Italy with boyfriend Wissam Al Mana while her mother Katherine Jackson is reportedly missing.
For the past few days Janet was spotted a board a yacht with Al Mana, her beau since 2010, off the coast of Italy. The 46-year old entertainer appeared relaxed but opted to remained full clothed while Al Mana chose shorts, a tank and even went shirtless at times.
Meanwhile back in the states a Jackson family dispute is escalating.
Katherine Jackson, mother of Michael Jackson, was reported missing by one of her nephews, Trent Jackson, late Saturday night because family members had been unable to reach her, but the Los Angeles Police Department issued a statement this morning saying that she may be with other family members.
It is unclear who the family matriarch is staying with, but the whole episode points to the general disarray of the feuding Jackson clan.
Trent filed a missing person’s report with the L.A County Sheriff’s Department after Katherine’s grandchildren had been unable to reach her for more a week, according to TMZ.
She has never gone more than 24 hours without speaking to her grandchildren, her lawyer told CNN.
While Jermaine Jackson tweeted earlier this week that Katherine was in Arizona resting up on doctor’s orders, Paris Jackson tweeted, “yes, my grandmother is missing. i haven’t spoken with her in a week i want her home now.”
She followed that up with a plea for people to call the authorities if they see her, then added, “the same doctor that testified on behalf of Dr Murray saying my father was a drug addict (a lie) is caring for my grandmother… just saying.”
The Jackson family has been feuding of late, with family members fighting over the decision by Paris to take a movie part—something with which Janet apparently disagrees—and their claims that the executor of Michael Jackson’s will should be fired because the will is a fake.
It’s not clear who is in charge of 14-year-old Paris, but if the girl is fighting with her uncles over Twitter there can’t be a lot of communication and supervision going on.
