The Jackson family has made no secret of drama that has plagued them over the years– Michael’s face? Nip slips? Or most importantly– naming a child ‘Jermajesty?’ There’s always something brewing on Days of 0ur Jacksons. Now suddenly I’m hearing rumors about missing persons reports, brainwashing sessions, and a slap/punch routine? What on Earth is going on over there?!
First, I need a refresher on our cast of characters, because I’ll be the first to step up and admit I’ve never been able to keep the Jacksons straight. (Hint: there are more than 5!) Here’s what we’re working with:
Super! Annnnnd then let’s go ahead and skip ahead a few years…
Okay– I don’t want to scare you, but I think something has gone horribly awry.
Here’s the brief version: Since Michael Jackson’s death his mother Katherine Jackson has tried to sue the pants off just about everybody. She’s also been named legal guardian of his three young children. Michael’s will is still in dispute and some of his siblings are calling for the executors of his estate to be removed, for the primary reason that… they aren’t in it. Monday, the entire situation reached a boiling point (THREE YEARS LATER. Count them, THREE), and the result was a spicy altercation at the Jackson family home.
- Saturday night Katherine Jackson’s nephew filed a missing person’s report, saying her grandchildren had been unable to reach her for more than a week. Police located her in Arizona at an undisclosed location. Jermaine Jackson confirmed that she is “with family” resting “on doctor’s orders.” “Everyone has been well aware of this within the family,” he responded. Tell that to the missing person’s report, Jermaine. I think you missed somebody on the phone tree. Meanwhile Michael’s kids are pretty much freaking out (on Twitter, of course):
- Monday afternoon, assorted family members turned up at the Jackson home in Calabasas. They exited their vehicle and approached Michael’s children, and that’s when the pot of emotions boiled over, including allegations that Janet slapped Paris upside the face and called her a “spoiled little bitch.” The children were taken to a safe location and Janet and Jermaine were seen exchanging heated words outside. Soon after, the L.A. County Sheriff Deputies showed up to file a battery report. No arrests were made.
Siblings in Camp #1 have alleged this is part of an elaborate scheme to brainwash their mother. Siblings from Camp #2 continue to claim that Katherine Jackson is fine, just sleeping okay? Katherine Jackson’s attorneys wasted no time and released an inflammatory statement about what happened: “Following 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.” BUT SHE SAYS SHE’S FINE GUYS. FINE.
As things stand now, Tito’s son TJ has filed for temporary custody of Michael’s children, including legal documents that claim Katherine Jackson has been essentially kidnapped. The whole thing is pending further review of the will, everyone is talking crap about everyone else, and Katherine Jackson is still… wherever she is. If no one has talked to her, how did they prepare a statement? Is she or is she not “resting?” What ever happened to Marlon? At this point it’s best not to ask too many questions, which I guess is par for the course with Jackson family history.
Now I wanna know who let Bo’s evil twin out of the cage in Stefano’s basement and who told Marlena about the nanny. ‘Fess up.
