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 watch alot of crime shows so here's how i think it's gonna happen. they are gonna say katherine had a threat against her life and for her safety she had to go someplace to hide out and she couldn't take the kids with her because then they might become a target too. and she couldn't tell them where she was because then someone might come after them because they know where she is hiding so mum was the word. feel free to use this if you want. i am not a psychic and i don't play one on tv or real life. in all seriousness i feel sorry for michael's kids not being able to get in contact with her. even if they are safe with a nanny, they should be able to talk to the one person who has become like a mother to them. put yourself in her place. if you were a kid and your mother disappeared and didn't tell you she was going anywhere but then you found out she was staying with relatives but didn't want to or couldn't talk to you, how devastating would that be? i mean come on. i hope the authorities find out what is going on and settle this fiasco once and for all.

Miss Katherine is legally responsible for those children. She is entitled to take time off, I suppose (how many parents really do?), and have another family member/s or nanny in her place, but it is just way too odd that Paris didn't know or wasn't told what was going on. It shows a lack of regard for those children's feelings of security, a lack of mental competency, or both.

I think Kathryn should relax and stop filing law suits and live out her golden years in peace! She is 82 years old and has lived through alot. She deserves some vacation time!

Looks as though this picture of the family playing is uno is photoshopped. Why are all the family members in pajamas and Katherine Jackson is wearing a blazer?

Something is wrong with this picture. Mrs. Jackson left her three minor grandchildren without any word she was going to visit her daugher Rebbie for a week.
and on top of that she never once attempted to call them to see how they were doing. It appears the children are not loved or wanted by Michael's family and his mother is under the influence of her own broke azz children who wants Michael's children money. Well if the children protective services do not remove these children on legal grounds from the Jackson's and remove them from Mrs. Jackson custody prompto I feel for these children welfare. You can see the trouble these children are in. This is not a safe or stable environment. Under the cir***stance seem like these children be given their own home with a care-taker and arrangements made with the court they appear every other week in person until they are of legal age that their welfare, health and happiness is in due order. I am sure the executors of Michael's estate can provide arrangements with the courts to find these children a house and care-taker with a decent salary to over see these children well being,

wow, there r a lot of racist nut jobs on here as well as idiots in general...she happens to be the custodial parent of mj's kids-to the posters commenting about her real grandkids-i hope you are not black, if so you are a disservice to your race to think she is not capable of loving her son's adopted children because of their skin tone-how small-minded can you be? also this pic looks fake-she is in a jacket in az in the middle of summer? everyone else is in short sleeves-the pic of her head looks photosh...mj's kids are set to inherit the bulk of his estate after katherine passes-her other children have no money..they, their wives and children have been living off of her for years...if none of this strikes any of you as peculiar then you are just beyond help to think this woman left of her own accord, abandoning her grandchildren whom she is responsible for and who have not had contact with her in over a week, the same week that most of katherine's children are trying to contest mj's will which give his estate to his mother and 3 children...well the truth is what it is, her 'real' grandkids aka michael's children are looking out for her because they are wise enough to see what is going on and they are bold enough to call out their aunts and uncles in the media to let the public know how unscrupulous these people are...the kids do not have anyone they can turn to so they are turning to us...well to ppl like me and others who are not dimwitted azzholes like 99.9 percent of you on here posting your ignorance for all to see!

Katherine looks relaxed and happy.If she were there against her will or didn't know that the children are fine, it would reflect in her face somehow. Katherine absolutely loves those kids, I'm sure they are in touch.

FROM THE ESTATE OF MICHAEL JACKSON

We thank the fans for their keen interest in the matters that have been reported on recently regarding the Estate and Mrs. Jackson.

We will not comment any further on the letter we received from certain of the Jackson siblings. We think our letter in response speaks for itself.

We are acutely concerned about the welfare of Mrs. Jackson, and most particularly with Michael’s minor children. We are concerned that we do what we can to protect them from undue influences, bullying, greed, and other unfortunate cir***stances. While we do not have standing to directly intervene, we have monitored the situation and will continue to do so. We believe measures are being put in place that will help protect them from what they are having to deal with.

We take these matters very seriously and will continue to report on them as appropriate.

Sincerely,

John Branca
John McClain
Co-Executors
The Estate of Michael Jackson
