Apparently Jackson family matriarch Katherine Jackson isn’t missing at all—she’s fine and staying in Arizona with daughter Rebbie, according to Jermaine Jackson.
So now the L.A. Sheriff’s Department is investigating why a nephew reported her missing in the first place.
The Jackson family seems committed to keeping law enforcement busy.
Over the weekend, the television airwaves and the web were buzzing with reports that Jackson had been reported missing by a nephew. Her 14-year-old granddaughter, Paris Jackson, Michael’s daughter, who apparently has taken to communicating each of her feelings to the world on Twitter, issued this call in regards to her grandmother:
“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.”
But this was Jermain’s statement about his mother:
“Let me put to bed today’s nonsense: as I made clear some days ago, Mother is safe and well in Arizona with her daughter and our sister, Rebbie, resting up on doctor’s advice, so it is beyond me how she can be reported ‘missing’.”
“This incredulous claim was made for reasons best known to the adult/s who filed it but it seems no accident that it comes after we, the sons and daughters, put in place care-taking for our own mother, taking her to Arizona in line with doctor’s advice following a check-up.”
“Furthermore, it dismays me that such an alarmist ‘missing person’ report has caused unnecessary anxiety among Michael’s children who will understandably react to what they misunderstand, hear or are told.”
“No-one is being ‘blocked’ from speaking with Mother. She is merely an 82-year-old woman following doctor’s orders to rest-up and de-stress, away from phones and computers. Everyone has been well aware of this within the family, but I would like to reiterate my reassurance to the outside world that Mother is fine. In the meantime, thank you for all your thoughts and concerns.”
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. Maybe the best thing that can happen to the family would be to take the teenager’s cellphone away for a while.
The 14-year-old daughter of the late Michael Jackson responded to a tweet by Randy about her father’s will being fake, where he also claims that his mother Katherine is in bad health.
Randy Jackson tweeted about a letter from him and his siblings Janet, Rebie, Tito and Jermaine that claimed Michael’s will was fake.
The letter demanded that the Jackson Estate executors John Branca and John McClain resign, but also stated that the stress from the problems caused Katherine Jackson to suffer a mini-stroke.
Paris was angry about the “lie” and tweeted, “I am going to clarify right now that what has been said about my grandmother is a rumor and nothing has happened, she is completely fine. I will defend my beloved family member with all I have, even if it means from other family members.”
Katherine’s attorney, Perry Sanders, denied that his client was in poor health.
Paris also sent another message to Randy, tweeting, “@randyjackson8 hello dear FAMILY member I don’t appreciate you telling everyone things that aren’t true thank you very much.”
