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 is Janet in on this? She's got all the money she needs. I thought she was the one Jackson that didn't need to leech off Michael.

I've seen so many families fight over estates and wills challenged. Why doesn't anyone respect the what the deceased wanted?

Maybe "missing" is what they need so that they reconsider their doings, and start behaving like a family. The Jacksons are very strong people and no matter how much disagreement, they will always be the tight knit family they've always been. They have been through thick and thin and always remained a family. That's one of the qualities I admire most in the Jacksons.
What I am thinking is that maybe the Michael Jackson Estate is not only Michael's work (which is most of the estate), but also includes the work of the Jackson 5 and The Jacksons, which is still around and generating royalties. And maybe, that's why the siblings are claiming money from the estate.
I love Michael Jackson! Undoubtedly, his work was the work of a genius, and he was a pioneer and opened many doors; but I don't think he did the right thing when he took the family trust and left the collective hard work of 40 years to his mother, children and charity, leaving everyone else out in the cold. And this is what happens, it breaks the family. I think they should all sit down as a family, and reconsider the distribution of the estate, which has enough money to satisfy everyone's needs.

Please, no judge will vacate the will, or change the conservators. They aren't stupid. MJ's will is iron clad. He wasn't stupid. He knew his family well, the good and bad, and he knew how to protect his children from the greed that runs rampant amongst some of his relatives. I'd like ot hear from Jackie and La Toya though. La Toya seems to have been the only one MJ was close to at the end.

In katherines defense, at her age living in a houseful of kids, she probably needed a break.
The way she went about it is a bit suspect however.

And so many speculations. We don't know the internal affairs of the Jacksons. All we know is what we read in the news but we don't know the actual situation. The Michael Jackson Estate's legal name could The Jackson Estate for all we know. I know that Paris has made the whole world a participant of her family's internal problems, but let the Jacksons solve their problems, they are intelligent people. The most important thing is that they remain a family. May God bless them and help them get through this!

wow...the more I hear about this family the more I dislike them...If the MJ sisters and brothers think there is something wrong in the will that is their business and they should get down to the truth even though they went to court a few years ago with a issue, but if you are AFFECTING your moms health give it up!!!! Mrs. Katherine Jackson is an elderly woman that needs to ENJOY the rest of her life in PEACE!!!!!

RIP MJ

Dr. Allan Metzger was brought into Jackson's home "under false pretenses" on July 14 by saying he was sent by her primary care physician, Ribera said. "We came to find out that her doctor has no association with Dr. Metzger."

C'mon...like she would up and leave the kids without telling them where she is going. She is their sole caretaker. I highly doubt she would go on vacation without telling them. Good for Paris for standing up and saying something!

Mrs. Jackson seems to be a strong woman, in her 80's and raising 3 grand kids. I hope that when she is called home (death) that everything will be in order for the kids. The love of money is the root of all evil. I pray for Mrs. Jackson and the entire Jackson family.

Also prayers for all those that was killed and injured in the shooting. As well as for the family of the shooter.

Going to the house of one of her children involved in the dispute is not exactly letting them solve their problems by themselves. Just b/c she left MJ3 with the nannies and not on the road does not mean they are safe and she knows the legalities, at the limit moreover. She is supposed to be the one who raises them, not the one who leave the task to the nannies.

The Executors of the Will need to file an emergency motion to change the children's guardian. That'd bring Katherine running back to LA.

When are people going to realize that the Jacksons don't give a crap about Michaels white children?

Disappointed to read Janet is involved in this transparent plot, I always considered her to be the exception to the s***bag sibling group. Guess not so much. She must have run through her money, as much as it was, and needs a refill.
