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.

is Janet involved because she's thinking if the dad & brothers can get their hands om Michael's money then they'll not come after hers
she'd better make sure she has an iron clad will or they'll gather like vultures if they outlive her
when Michael died she must have had more money than him because she wasn't living the weirdly extravagant lifestyle that he was
this is all very fishy
hope that judges see past the crap and leave the executors in charge
they have done a remarkable job of paying off debts and keeping the estate earning money to guarantee the future of the 3 kids- which is all that Michael wanted- so he chose wisely
...
nothing but greedy vultures- the 3 kids need their own lawyer to protect them from the crazy family
too bad that their real mothers can not step in to protect them
but if they tried to - everyone would suspeect them of only doing it because of the money

Blood-sucking bastards ! Now everyone sees why Michael kept his distance from his siblings . They were always jealous of his notoriety while they became nothing more than entertainer's from the past. The executor of Michael's will won't allow, nor will the court allow those buzzard's to wrest the inheritance that Michael meant for his children . What an ugly bunch they all are . Michael's fame was his alone for many years and his estate owes them diddly squat !

I'm sorry what? Katherine repeaetdly tried to challenge the will shortly for same reason after MJ's death, the will has a special provision within it, that if anyone who is listed in a will challenges it they will become disinherited, MJ clearly only wanted the all monies to go to charities and his children. This greedy family is beyond belief. How are these children better off with MJ's mother if her only concern is get their inhertitance away from them, why are they not with their biological mother. This horrible family only concern is the money and not MJ's children, they can fight all they want, they will never get their greedy hands on that money.

I have always wondered just how long it would take and just how the Jacksons will legally get those three white kids out of the will. Perhaps this is just the start of the bigger picture.

2 things that I find interesting: All those Jacksons now claim that they are not interfering with communication,that it is the other way around.That they tried to call.
Yet it is Paris that claims that she was told by her uncle that she was not allowed to speak with her grandmother when she called,that she was resting.Then they moved her location and only the police was able to locate her.
It is glaringly obvious that the Jackson clan envies those kids and consider them non-blood ,even hate them. I would think that they are in danger ,of a lot of things and no one to protect them.

So did she or did she not abandon those kids?Is this a case of no longer wanting to care for M.J.`s kids?

I really hate that this has become a media spectacle, since this was intended to be a private matter within the family. There is not one family on this earth that don't have family issues. But I guess this is the price you pay when you are a famous family. Their mistake was not telling the grandkids and some of the others where Katherine was, which led to a missing report and Paris tweeting about her grandmother being missing. Everything snowballed from there. Now everybody is giving their opinions about what they think is going on. And no one knows for sure but Katherine and her kids. This will probably affect the ticket sales of the Jackson tour because many people are thinking that the Jackson siblings are up to no good. But no one but them knows for sure what is really going on. I hope that Katherine gets guardianship back and hire assistants to help her with the grandkids and other stressful matters that she is dealing with. And IF by chance some of the Jackson siblings ARE trying to plot to get some of the money from Michael's estate, they need to let it go because if Michael wanted them to have any of his money, he would have included them in his 1997 and 2005 will, (which was basically the same),... but he didn't.
