Jackson Family Drama: Michael’s Mother, Katherine, Has Been Reported Missing By Her Grandkids

By  | 

UPDATE: Katherine Jackson has been found!

Michael Jackson‘s mother, Katherine Jackson, has been reported missing to the Los Angeles Police Department by her nephew Trent. According to the report, Michael’s children, Paris, Prince and Blanket have been unable to get in touch with their grandmother in the past week.

Paris Jackson even tweeted a distressed message to her followers, saying, “[M]y grandmother is missing. i haven’t spoken with her in a week i want her home now. If anybody sees my grandmother, please call the authorities.”

Oddly though, her uncle Jermaine disputes the idea that Katherine is missing. He also sent tweets saying, ”I want to reassure everyone (inc all sudden medical experts) that Mother is fine but is resting up in AZ on the orders of a doctor, not us. This is our mother and her health is paramount. We are not inventing or plotting anything. We are following doctor’s advice. Period.”

This entire incident comes directly after the late-superstar’s siblings claimed that their brother’s estate has been mishandled. They also claim that Katherine has suffered a mini-stroke because of how she was being treated by the estate’s executors.

No matter what Jermaine claims, the LA police have handed the case over to the homicide-missing persons departments. And Katherine’s grandchildren are concerned, because they’ve never gone more than 24 hours without speaking to their grandmother.

The entire story, and the way it’s being played out via social media, is just sad. It’s sad to think that three children who have already been through so much would have to endure this family drama. It’s horrible to think that they haven’t been able to contact their grandmother, who has had permanent custody of them since their father’s death.

Hopefully, Katherine Jackson is found quickly and reunited with her grandkids. And even more, I hope that the entire family can put their bickering aside and come together for the care of three young kids who need and deserve a close network of support.
