Now, Paris' older brother, Prince Michael Jackson, has taken to Twitter to accuse family members of preventing him and his siblings from talking to their grandmother.
In a statement posted Thursday morning, Prince thanks family supporters, then declares, "As long as I can remember my dad had repeatedly warned me of certain people and their ways. Although I am happy my grandma was returned, after speaking with her I realized how misguided and how badly she was **** to. I’m really angry and hurt."
Prince continues, "The following image is of a group chat I had started to several family members. This group text message I had started was rep**** to but they didn’t know that I could see the responses. For this whole time, they denied us contact to our grandmother." He concludes with the quoted statement, “'If you continue with your lies I will continue with the truth.'”
A link following the message displays a mobile phone screengrab of a group text messaging session from July 23 that's apparently between him, Janet Jackson, Rebbie Jackson and Rebbie's son, Austin. Prince texts, "This is enough so I am texting you for the simple fact that WE DEMAND TO SPEAK TO MY GRANDMA NOW!!!" That message is followed by one identified as coming from Janet Jackson, which declares, "don't let them pls.' However, the bottom of the text message is cut off in the screengrab, so it's impossible to tell from the image whether there was more to the reply, and what else might have transpired in the session.
Wednesday in Los Angeles, a judge temporarily revoked 82-year-old Katherine Jackson's guardianship of Michael's children -- Paris, Prince Michael and Prince Michael II -- awarding it to **** Jackson's son, TJ. Katherine Jackson claimed in exclusive statements to ABC News Wednesday night that the court action was unnecessary because she'd left TJ in charge of the kids from the start while she traveled to a resort in Tucson, Arizona, where daughter Rebbie lives, for some rest. She also claimed she "gave up my phone and I didn't want to have any phone calls" while she was in Tucson.
