. . . and this time it’s extra weird.
It all started about a week or two ago when five Jackson siblings (including Janet, who we all generally assumed was sane)publicly posted a letter contesting the authority of the executors of Michael’s estate. The crux of the letter appears to be that the executors plotted to kill Michael, Michael’s final will that was used was not legitimate, and that their mother- Katherine- has failing health and is being manipulated. Janet, Jermaine, Tito, Randy and Rebbie Jackson cosigned the letter, which included gems like:
That’s all weird, but not exactly surprising for the Jacksons. This next part is where things go down the rabbit hole of strange.
Michael’s 14 year old daughter, Paris, is very active on Twitter through a verified account. After the letter from her aunts and uncles came out, she immediately posted (and it has now been deleted, but the CNN article above quotes it), “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.” Then Katherine is reported missing to the LAPD. It then comes out that Paris, Prince, and Blanket haven’t seen their grandmother in a handful of days, haven’t talked to her on the phone, and have no idea where she is. Apparently, this is very strange because she never goes a day without at least speaking to them. Paris then posted on her Twitter, “yes , my grandmother is missing . i haven’t spoken with her in a week i want her home now.” Then Paris posted the phone number of their security team, asking any one with information to call and help.
About this time, Jermaine comes out and says Katherine is in Arizona for a Jackson family show, but also on doctor’s orders to rest. Previously, she had planned to take a bus out to the show and right back, but a doctor met with her and told her to leave immediately on a plane. According to Paris, this wasn’t Katherine’s regular doctor, but instead a guy who testified on behalf of Doctor Murray (the doctor who was involved in Michael’s death).
Don’t worry, we’re almost caught up.
So, yesterday, Jermaine and Janet supposedly rushed the gate at the house where the Jackson kids are and accosted them out in front of the house. It’s all on tape and supposedly the disagreement was because Janet and Jermaine wanted to take the kids to Arizona. Also, because Janet was unhappy that Paris was posting family business on Twitter-- so she tried to take Paris’ phone. Strangely, Jermaine and Janet were video taping this whole confrontation themselves, too.
Late last night, Paris posted on Twitter that it’s been 8 days and she still hasn’t talked to her guardian.
Right now, the estate is preparing to file guardianship papers for Michael’s kids, since Katherine has gone MIA. The kids met with their court appointed attorney, who appears worried about the situation, too. Katherine’s lawyers are claiming this is part of an elaborate scheme by the Jacksons to remove Katherine and Michael’s kids from their home. The LA Sheriff has closed their missing persons case, but has an open, on going investigation on the matter of Katherine being emotionally and financially mistreated by family members. Oh, and Debbie Rowe- the mother of 2 of the 3 kids-- is apparently concerned and considering make a move here, too.
In this last hour, Paris posted, “9 days and counting… so help me god i will make whoever did this pay.”
All I can say is: those poor kids. For his entire life, people criticized Michael for being weird or messed up-- but looking at this mess, anybody involved in this circus would have been weird, too. It’s no surprise that Michael very actively kept his children away from his family for his entire life. I have no doubt that this is all about the $$$.
