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.

Gloria Allred where are you? Michael's kids need you badly. They are being treated very badly by their so called aunts and uncles. Get the kids a lawyer and remove them from Katherine's hands. Apparently she no longer is able to take care of them. The aunts and uncles must think this is very funny. After the way their father died and the trauma they went through this is really a cruel mental game they are playing on the kids. They need to be taken away immediately. Call in social services immediately.

Like others here, I would love to know why she abandoned those children. Who is wtching them, while she sits around playing UNO?

What kind of family(and I use that word loosely) does not have contact with 3 minor chifdren? Better yet, why are they trying to steal their inheritance?

S***bags does not come close to describe them.

This woman is apparently the only one not in on the scheme!! If this was all planned ahead of time, she would have told those children she would be gone for a while. They (MJ's siblings) don't want Paris influencing their mother to stick with the current will that's in place. They are going to do whatever it takes to get her to sign on the dotted line, and in the process mess her own finances up. If they want money, they need to go out and earn it like everyone else. This is SO pathetic!!!

The Jackson strife: Family bickers over whereabouts of Michael's mom

-

Los Angeles (CNN) -- A lawyer for Katherine Jackson is asking the FBI for help, saying Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies were not allowed to see Michael Jackson's mother in Arizona as part of a missing person investigation Monday.

"Randy's security refused to allow them in," attorney Sandra Ribera told CNN Monday. She said she was referring to Randy Jackson, Katherine Jackson's youngest son.

Still, a law enforcement officer did speak to Jackson in Arizona, satisfying the investigators' concerns, Los Angeles County Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore said Monday afternoon.

"Katherine Jackson has been located and she is fine and with family," Whitmore said. "Our missing persons case is closed."

Because the 82-year-old matriarch of the Jackson music dynasty was taken across state lines, Ribera said earlier, she hopes the FBI will investigate the cir***stances of what she called her disappearance.

It is the latest chapter in a messy dispute between several of Jackson's children and her advisers over her finances and legal affairs.

The lack of contact with her since July 15 led her nephew Trent Jackson to file the missing person report with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department late Saturday, Ribera said.

If there is utter chaos in her own home it is her own fault. All the other grandkids have at least one parent who can take care of them but they prefer all the $$$ that Katherine has and Katherine lets them all stay with her. Shame on her. Michael wasn't too far sighted, that's for sure.

Michael's Kids aren't the only grandchildren living there. Katherine had no other choice but to care for Michael's Kids but the other grandkids were dumped on the poor lady like she is Nanny. She is probably at her wits end with a bunch of bratty misbehaving teenagers who probably treat her horribly. I have teenagers so I know what they mean by "utter chaos"

All of the Jackson kids have been dumped at her house like she is Mary Poppins, its one thing when she is forced to care for Michaels Kids, but the rest of the Jackson clan is taking the poor lady for granted allowing there kids to live there. Take care of your own kids and let the dear lady rest. She is probably at her wits end with misbehaving teenagers and they all probably treat her terribly, no wonder Rebbie came and took her away. I wouldn't tell the brats either she left

Its great going back after you hear that a huge fight broke out here to read all the morons rabids saying things like. SEE I TOLD YOU EVERYTHING WAS OK like they have some "inside" with the family. Meanwhile if you look at the picture its pretty obvious they where not playing cards but rather another typical photo op for the PEDO protectors who abandoned the money back at home. You know who would like to be playing cards? Paris. You remember her right? Shes the one you allowed your son to buy back in the day.

Paris Jackson is very upset & worried about her grandmother. She has tweeted that it is 8 days and counting since she has talked to her. She feels something is very off.
