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.

Why has CPS not taken the kids out of the Jack$son home?
Once again the LA County Sherrif has messed up, they went to Arizona to do a welfare check and were knocked back because it is out of their jurisdiction, duhhhhhhhhhhhh
The Pima County Sherrifs also messed up by speaking with Katherine in front of Rebbie instead of in private.

It basically sounds like Katherine has been abducted in an attempt to manipulate her point of view regarding the will.

She has probably been told that MJ's kids are just fine and there is nothing to worry about. Katherine probably doesn't even realize the media storm that resulted from her unexplained absence.

Shouldn't there be laws against this type of control over an elderly unsuspecting person?

Vultures.. they need to get jobs to provide for themselves instead of trying to steal from children.

Katherine Jackson is no better than the children she raised. Don't fool yourselves. If she cared about those kids at all, she wouldn't have abandoned them without saying a word. Katherine Jackson and her children will do everything they can to see to it that Michael's kids get nothing. Just wait. In another couple years, those conservators will be fired and Paris, Prince and little Blanket will be left alone with the wolves. Wait another 15-20 years, Katherine will be dead and the kids will be flat broke on the streets while the rest of the Jacksons blow through Michael's money.

1. It has turned out to be that , for all of Michael's quirks, for all of his drama, He's turned out to be the sanest one of the entire bunch outside of Katherine. Pretty smart to put in that " If you contest the will, then you're out of the will " clause to stop anyone from trying to gainsay him when he's dead. 2. I STILL believe that Katherine believe the children had been told. She would not NOT answer their calls if she knew they were calling, she would NOT go along with this supposed rest and relaxation if she thought for a second those babies would be worried or not know the full details. 3. I just pray Katherine is truly fine, and when the whole story comes to light, she pulls away from her backstabbing, manipulative, conniving children.

There's a problem here    

That money should have gone into a trust with unrelated professional trusees for those children and their upkeep. The Jacksons are always were, are now, and always will be a bunch of bums living off Michael, which is why they all turned a blind eye while he was being savagely abused by his father.

Like I said before Katherine is ok. She just needed to get away from all the bickering, twittering and bad publicity and decided to give everyone a lesson. She left them alone to resolve their problems.
The kids are not in danger and not alone. They have people caring for them! Katherine is a strong, intelligent woman. She knows the legalities.
