Katherine Jackson

'What's All The Fuss?'

7/23/2012 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0723_katherine_jackson_x17onlineKatherine Jackson is alive and well in Arizona, though she's playing her cards close to her vest.

TMZ broke the story ... Michael Jackson's siblings whisked Katherine away to a spa in Tucson to help her escape what they called the "utter chaos" of the Jackson family home in Encino. Apparently no one told Katherine's nephew, who reported her missing Saturday night.

Now, a photo of Katherine at the Arizona spa has surfaced -- showing her playing UNO with her daughter Rebbie, her granddaughter Stacy, and her great grandson London.

Katherine is supposedly relaxing and having a good time.

Not pictured: MJ's children ... who Katherine abandoned in L.A. during her getaway.

I think the will had to be forged due to the fact it was supposedly signed on July 7, 2002 in Los Angeles, CA. But MJ was clearly in New York City the whole entire day on July 7, 2002 and I the day before too for a protest with fans against Sony outside their HQ. Plus, MJ fan Club threw him a tribute party at the Hammerstein Ballroom that day. I should know... I have the ticket for when i went and this date is printed on it. MJ was in attendance. Everyone saw him that was there. So I understand why they are contesting the will, plus there's other evidence they haven't publicly disclosed yet. And on another note, i think that was awfully suspicious that the LAPD "accidentally " erased over the surveillance tape to who was entering and exiting MJ's house when he died. I think the LA Times reported this. But its a fact, not rumor. Dr. Conrad Murray, was out of lone, but he ended up being the fall guy when it was all over with.

TMZ Katherine did not abandon Michaels kids. Katherine has 45 other grandchildren to worry about. Michaels Kids will be fine, the others were there first.

Deserting these minor children that look upon their grandmother as a parent ... and being gone a week and never even call to find out how they are doing, or to let them know where you are - is a pretty heartless, cold thing to do.

Think that Paris, Prince and Blanket will probably never forget this incident ... and how apparently little they mean to their grandmother. They have been humiliated in front of the whole country.

Actions speak louder than words, and Katherine can say how much those kids mean to her, but obviously it is too much effort to pick up a phone to find out how they are doing. I don't know of a single decent parent that would ever do this to their children ...

White people on here are only commenting because those kids are white. I don't see them asking about all the other grandkids. Michaels kids ain't special white people.

She just wanted "all black" vacation. She didn't want Michael's white kids.

well, look how happy they all look. Too bad there are 3 kids who lost there father, left fearing for their grandmother , not knowing where what happened to her. How traumatic that must be. I thought Katharine was the only sane one in that family. Now i question her sanity as well. Can't wait til these children are 18 & can get the hell away from this freak show of a family

She is probably involved in the scheme to get her children the money-when she dies they get NADA-She must care so much for MJ's kids that she would leave them worried thinking something has happened to her after not hearing from her for a week! A normal person would tell them where she is going, when she will be back and how to reach her. I don't care how much she "deserves" time away- I'm sure she doesn't do much to take care of them anyway...she is pointless to them, they are better off without this family of thieves

Paris Jackson Only Went to Uncles’ Show Last Night Hoping to See Grandmother–Still Missing

Paris Jackson went to the Greek Theater last night in L.A. not to support her uncles–but to see her grandmother. She and her adult cousins–who are watching Paris, Prince, and Michael–were told grandmother Katherine Jackson would be at the show. She was not. As far as anyone knows, KAtherine Jackson is still in Phoenix with her daughter Rebbie and cousins. She has not had any communication with her custodial grandchildren. My sources say her cell phone and laptop have been removed.

“The children are very worried,” says a source– and rightly so. Mrs. Jackson went to Phoenix with the intention of seeing her four sons appear in three shows–in Phoenix and Las Vegas. She never appeared at any of them and has not been heard from since. And now the brothers have played in Los Angeles, and still Mrs. Jackson is missing. She is not “fine” by any means if she’s being prevented from contacting her grandchildren and her attorneys. As of this afternoon, no one has heard from her. This is a serious situation.

For one thing, she is the legal guardian of three minor children. Second, she is the heir to a large estate–her son Michael’s. The feeling is that she won’t re-surface until she agrees to the demands that five of her children laid out in a letter to Michael Jackson’s executors last week. This is unbelievable. Certainly Rebbie Jackson Brown can be made to produce her mother in a court if pressed by the guardian ad litem for the children. More to come…

PS Paris Jackson has been pulled off of Twitter. There have been no new messages since yesterday.

And TMZ is wrong–Katherine was not taken to Phoenix to a spa…

They need to get their act together for Michael's kids. They've already lost their father and it is really unfair for Katherine to suddenly disappear. Given that she is 82 and Blanket is only 10 or so, there is a very good chance she will die before he (and maybe the other kids) reach 18. That will be really disruptive to their lives too, so don't make them insecure about things you can control.

Interesting - they are all drinking "Diet Coke" and are "showing all their cards" - -

Big deal. My parents took vacations now and then without us kids. Everyone needs a break now and then. I'm sure she left them in very good hands.
