With This Much Public Family Drama, The Jacksons Will Surely Be Offered A Reality Show
Katherine Jackson may have been found safe and sound in Arizona, but the Jackson family drama has not subsided. That whiff of Michael Jackson‘s estate has the Jackson siblings acting crazy, including soft-spoken Janet Jackson who reportedly slapped her niece, Paris Jackson. And that’s only the beginning.
TMZ reports that Randy Jackson, Jermaine Jackson, and Janet rolled up to Katherine’s LA home and tried to coax Michael Jackson’s children, Paris, Prince, and Blanket into a car. Apparently, the siblings planned to take the kids to Arizona to join their grandmother. But Paris wasn’t looking to go anywhere:
Our sources say at one point Janet tried to grab a resistant Paris’ cell phone, a scuffle ensued and Janet slapped the teenager, screaming, “You’re a spoiled little bitch!”Â We’re told Paris fired back with her own slap and told Janet, “This is our house. Not the Jackson family house. Get the f**k out!”
But that’s when Katherine’s nephew, Trent Jackson, reportedly put Randy into a headlock and punched Jermaine. Police were called to the scene but no arrests were made. Meanwhile, young Paris has been tweeting up a storm, writing such ominous statements like “everyones taking control of me” and “so help me god i will make whoever did this pay.” TMZ also reports that Michael’s 34-year-old nephew, TJ Jackson, is now attempting to get temporary custody of this three cousins. Even Katherine Jackson’s lawyer,Â Sandra Ribera, is going on record as saying something is seriously foul with the Jacksons:
â€œAfter exiting their vehicles, Jackson family members ran up to Michaelâ€™s children as they yelled and began to aggressively grab at the cell phones in their hands,â€ Ribera said.
â€œFollowing 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,â€ Ribera claimed.
Uncle Randy maintains that he and his siblings were simply trying to reunite their nephews and niece with their beloved grandmother in Arizona. How that hypothetical motive devolved into screaming obscenities and battery, we can only speculate. But somewhere, I bet there is probably a Lifetime or TLC producer looking to capitalize on this family’s pain.
UPDATE: Katherine Jackson’s custody of her grandchildren has been suspended.
