Less than 24 hours after authorities reported that Jackson family matriarch Katherine Jackson is safe, her children on Monday released a statement that essentially holds the executors of their brother Michael's estate responsible for the whole episode.
Over the weKevin Winter/Getty Imagesekend, a family member filed a missing person’s report regarding 82-year-old Katherine. In addition, Michael's daughter, Paris, tweeted that her grandmother was missing. However, a Los Angeles ****** Sheriff spokesman said Sunday that Katherine was safe and with family members.
On Monday, the Jackson siblings –- several of whom are calling on the executors of Michael's estate to step aside, alleging that they have caused Katherine stress and that Michael's signature on his will was forged -- released a statement obtained by ABC News regarding the matter.
The statement reads, "This fallacious missing persons report was created by the very person and persons we are trying to protect our mother from. We feel that there is a conspiracy to deflect the attention away from a letter we wrote asking for the resignation of executors, John Branca and John McClain, as well as some of her 'advisors' and 'caregivers.'"
The siblings further state, "We feel there is strong evidence that supports the falsification of documents in order to takeover and profit from the estate of our beloved brother, Michael Jackson....This is being handled by the proper authorities and due process will take place."
According to TMZ.com, the Jackson siblings took Katherine to a Tucson, Arizona spa, without Paris' knowledge, in part because they think "the house is utter chaos."
Adding even more drama, Los Angeles ****** Sheriff’s Deputies went to the Jackson family home in Calabasas, California Monday afternoon after receiving a report of physical disturbance. Los Angeles ****** Sheriff Steve Whitmore tells ABC News deputies took a battery report of a dispute between two people, but no arrests were made.
TMZ.com reports Janet and Jermaine Jackson were photographed in front of the family compound Monday having what the website describes as a “heated exchange.” It’s not known if Janet and Jermaine were the two people involved in the dispute that brought police to the home.
Addressing the possible origin of the Monday disturbance, attorneys for Katherine Jackson on Tuesday released the following statement:
"Yesterday afternoon certain Jackson family members ambushed Katherine Jackson’s home after their vehicle tore through security gates on the tails of the SUV containing Michael Jackson’s children. After exiting their vehicles, Jackson family members ran up to Michael’s children as they yelled and began to aggressively grab at the cell phones in their hands. Out of concern for the wellbeing [sic] of Prince, Paris, and Blanket Jackson, the children were forced to temporarily leave their home and taken to a safe location. An altercation ensued shortly thereafter and law enforcement arrived at the scene.
"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. Prince, Paris, and Blanket Jackson have not heard from their grandmother since she left their home nine days ago to attend a series of her sons’ concerts on their Unity Tour. She never made the shows. Despite efforts to interview Katherine Jackson at her current location in Arizona yesterday, Los Angeles ****** Sheriffs confirmed that they were denied access to Mrs. Jackson by security for one of her children."
As of Tuesday morning, there had been no public response to the statement from Katherine Jackson's attorneys.
