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 whole point is that no one informed the kids that their grandmother was going away for a few days and that someone else would be looking after them. Maybe one of her own kids said that they would look after MJ's kids while she was away. Who knows.

Seems like the Jac$on$ are having trouble keeping their stories straight.

So we know they are all aware of Michael's kids being worried sick about granma also her nephew Trent who is her long time driver/caregiver etc was worried enough to call the cops to report her missing ans she has not bothered to call and speak with the kids.

SOMETHING IN THE MIX STINKS

mj fan forever    

It's beyond disgusting she abandoned Michael's children, that's not the way he wanted her to raise his children, without any guide, that's not why he left them with her!!!! He couldn't imagine all this filth, otherwise he would have never left them with her!!!! Greedy unnatural mother Katherine was supposed she to be their guardian and take care for them, for none reason she would have had to leave them alone!!!! They orchestrated all this disgusting stupid plot to bash the Estate, which widely showed it is working on behalf of Michael's wishes, fully respecting them, this bunch of leeches parasites deadbeats are not going to have a dime of Michael's money LOSERS VULTURES it's all useless!!!!!

Cops Called to Katherine Jackson’s Home, Stop Michael Jackson’s Children Being Removed By Janet, Jermaine and Randy Jackson (EXCLUSIVE)

--


Los Angeles police were called to the Calabasas, Calif., mansion of Jackson family matriarch Katherine earlier Monday to stop Michael Jackson’s three children from being removed from the house, Celebuzz has exclusively learned.

It’s understood at least three siblings of the late pop star Michael Jackson — Janet, Jermaine, Randy — arrived at the mansion 82-year-old Katherine shares with the late pop star’s children, Prince Michael, 15, Paris, 14, and ten-year-old Prince Michael 2.

“Janet, Jermaine and Randy turned up with what appeared to be a television crew in tow,” a source at the home told Celebuzz.

It’s understood Katherine’s personal security prevented the trio of uncle and aunts from taking the children and immediately called police. It is not known if police were involved in preventing Janet, Jermaine and Randy.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department confirmed the development when contacted by Celebuzz.

“We were called out to her home at 1.10pm,” the Watch Commander at the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station confirmed to Celebuzz.

“Police are currently still trying to determine what happened at the home, so at this point, we do not have any further information.”


As Celebuzz previously reported, the legal guardian for the three Jackson children was reported missing to police late on Saturday — as a family feud escalated over his multi-billion dollar will.

A shaken Paris appealed on Twitter: “My grandmother is missing. I haven’t spoken with her in a week. I want her home now. If anybody sees my grandmother, please call the authorities.”

A photo emerged Monday of Katherine at a resort in Arizona playing cards.

“She is safe and with family members,” L.A. Sheriff’s Deputy Don Walker read from a statement Monday morning, L.A. Now reported.

But the cir***stances of her departure from Los Angeles remain mysterious.

“Last weekend Katherine Jackson was getting ready to leave for a much anticipated road trip in the RV her son Michael bought for her to watch her sons perform,” Katherine’s attorney Sandra Ribera told Celebuzz.

“Prior to her departure, a doctor was brought to her home and represented that he had been sent from the office of her longtime physician. Based on this representation, Mrs. Jackson agreed to meet with the doctor who subsequently ordered her to fly rather than drive to her sons concerts.

“Mrs. Jackson followed what she believed to be her doctor’s instructions. Katherine Jackson’s longtime physician recently confirmed that his office did not send a doctor to Mrs. Jackson’s home last weekend before she left on her trip,” Ribera added.

“It has further been discovered that the doctor that Katherine Jackson last saw has been publicly reprimanded by the California Medical Board for fraudulent activities and has ties to Dr. Conrad Murray.”

The “disappearance” comes after five of Jackson’s brothers and sisters — Rebbie, Janet, Jermaine, Tito and Randy — wrote to executors of the singer’s estate, claiming the signature of his will is “fake, flawed and fraudulent.”

They called for them to step down in the letter leaked to Celebuzz, as we exclusively reported.

My Questions:

Why didn't she speak to Paris OR why was she PREVENTED from speaking to Paris?

Why not take the 3 grandchildren you're responsible for with you?

Why not "rest" and play UNO at home under the supervision of Doctors, Nurses and Aides?

Why not explain to your grandchildren that grandmother needs a break and make appropriate arrangements for a get-away?
