Katherine Jackson

At Arizona Spa

7/23/2012 11:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0722-Katherine-Jackson_getty_2Katherine Jackson is at a fancy spa in Tucson, Arizona, but the big question now ... why did leave Michael Jackson's 3 kids?

Sources tell us ... Michael Jackson's siblings took Katherine from the family compound in Encino, CA to the Arizona spa, because they feel "the house is utter chaos" and Katherine is exhausted.

Here's the mystery ... Paris and presumably the other 2 kids were never told Katherine was leaving and it's been a week since they've seen her. So why would Michael's brothers and sisters yank Katherine from the home when she is the only parental link to the 3 kids who are still coping with their father's death?

Sources familiar with the situation tell us ... there's a "concerted effort" to get Katherine on board to challenge Michael Jackson's will and get the Executors removed.  In addition to Randy and Jermaine, Rebbie and Janet are also on board, although it's unclear exactly how much Jackie supports the move.

Michael's siblings think they have a lot to gain if the will is invalidated.  But here's the problem -- if the will is invalidated, the prior will becomes effective and under that document they still end up with goose eggs.

The L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. is still treating the report that Katherine went missing as an open investigation and they are doing a follow-up to make sure she's ok.

If anyone believes this was a "planned vacation" as Jermaine insists then anyone will surely believe she is vacationing on sunny beach front property in Arizona. Planned is when it is on the calendar and your family (meaning the ones closest to you) know your plans and don't send out BOLOs to the world as to your whereabouts. Something is still not right with this story....just saying

Leave the old lady alone. Maybe she found a hot young guy and she's getting it on with him.

Appears it is time the Court investigate Katherine's mental state. Is Katherine now a puppet at the will of her greedy children. If Katherine is leaving MJ's children virtually unattended by leaving without letting them know where she is and how to contact her, then she does not appear to be in her full faculties.


Perhaps it is time to weigh the need for a Court appointed impartial conservator for Katherine and a Court appointed impartial Guardianship for MJ's children. Someone who is not blood related since there appears no one who can be trusted in that family.

Hard to imagine a judge invalidating the will. Scary thought, though.

We've been here before. MJs will has one of those clauses that says - if you contest it, you're out of it. Katherine will NOT contest the will. She tried that once and withdrew after it was explained to her - IF YOU CONTEST IT, YOU GET NOTHING.

I thought they already went through the "is the will valid" drama right after MJ died. And it was proven that the will WAS valid, and the only people to receive money were his children and his mother, *as their guardian.*


Team Branca was obviously the right team for the job because they cleared up MJ's massive debt in a couple of years.

Now that the money's flowing again, the family is beggin' again. A lifetime of living off their brother, and they won't stop even when he's dead. They all ought to be ashamed of themselves. And yeah, get a job.

Katherine is weak. Otherwise she would have protected her children from Joe. She doesn't even have the will to follow through with the divorce.

Who is looking after the kids? I am sure if i left my children at home for 2 weeks without telling were i was I would lose custody of them. Where is child welfare in all this? Katherine is the legal guardian of those kids so she should be with them or let them know whats up.

I'm disappointed in Janet. I thought she was the only sane one in the family. This whole family is crazy, lazy money hungry moochers. I can't stand them.

I believe this was a planned vacation as much as I believe Katherine was doing a bikini shoot on the beach. And who knew Toyota turned out to be the hero in this family and not a zero.

Lawd! This family still needs help. I wonder if Janet is truly onboard with those siblings or if she wants them to leave her money alone. Who are they to be in a position to contest the executors/conservators? But Katherine doing it is another story. And I guess that's why they are trying to set her up to be proved incompetent. Why else would she "leave" the three kids who are in her care? Sounds like a set-up to me.

Given that this is nothing but a tabloid site and they make money by reporting stories and stirring up stories so that they can garner hits, etc., this story may or may not be accurate. No one knows exactly what is going on with any of it other than some of the siblings are unhappy with the fact that the will may not be valid. It remains to be seen why that is but all of this speculation is ridiculous.

The Jackson's never stop! I used to think MJ was sooo strange now I see why, all MJ wanted to do was take care of his children and his siblings are determined to screw with these innocent children. Haven't they ever heard of honor thy mother? I said it yeaterday and I say it again today child abuse and elder abuse you can't get much lower than that.
