If you were hoping that the Jackson family ugliness would be ending soon—hope again. Just when it seemed like matters couldn’t get any worse, we have gotten word that Janet Jackson and several her siblings have been banned from entering their mother Katherine’s home.
The Jackson family attorney Howard Weitzman has declared that Janet, Randy, Jermaine and Rebbie are all banned from the property. So the take-away here is, if you tangle with a 14-year-old whose father happens to be the most famous man in the world, you will lose.
“Given the circumstances of the last two weeks, and in order to protect the children and Mrs. Jackson, the Executors believe that it would not be appropriate to allow the following individuals to enter the residence or its grounds and we instruct the security to preclude the following from entering the residence or the grounds: Randy Jackson and any of his children, Janet Jackson, Rebbie Jackson and any of her children, Jermaine Jackson, his wife and any of his children,” said the lawyer’s statement.
The family business couldn’t get any messier, and now outsiders are telling some of the most famous people on the planet that they can’t even come to the house where their Momma lives? Wow, that can’t go down very well with Janet, Jermaine and Rebbie. We can probably expect to hear from Janet, Jermaine and Rebbie’s legal representatives by the end of the week.
Said a Jackson family source to x17, “What kind of lawyer would deny a mother from seeing her own children. Katherine cried the first two days she came home. She told her assistant, ‘They’re taking everything from me.’ They’re denying her from hearing the truth. They’re denying her family access to see her and trying to get her in court as fast as possible.”
The declaration by Weitzman comes as Katherine has agreed to a joint arrangement would allow Katherine deal with the child-rearing while T.J. handles the administrative details, such as hiring and overseeing staff at the Calabasas estate. Reportedly the arrangement was urged by Michael’s oldest son, Prince.
A statement released over the weekend by Katherine’s attorney Perry Sanders reads: “Mrs. Jackson is extremely pleased with the prospect of enjoying the pleasure of raising Michael’s children without the day-to-day tedium of items such as managing the large staff that goes with such a high-profile family and focus her attention on being a grandmother and raising Michael’s children.
“She is eager to simply enjoy her great relationship with these children, while deeding over some of the stressors that go hand in hand with being a guardian.”
