Katherine Jackson's Attorney

MJ's Kids Were 'Ambushed'

0724_katherin_jackson_tmzKatherine Jackson's legal team claims Michael Jackson's siblings have concocted a diabolical plot to remove Katherine from her home and her "beloved grandchildren" ... and part of the plan involved ambushing MJ's children.

Katherine's attorney released a statement saying, "Yesterday afternoon certain Jackson family members ambushed Katherine Jackson’s home after their vehicle tore through security gates on the tails of the SUV containing Michael Jackson’s children."

"After exiting their vehicles, Jackson family members ran up to Michael’s children as they yelled and began to aggressively grab at the cell phones in their hands. Out of concern for the well being of Prince, Paris, and Blanket Jackson, the children were forced to temporarily leave their home and have been taken to a safe location.  An altercation ensued shortly thereafter and law enforcement arrived at the scene."

The statement continues, "Following the incident, it was learned that one of the family members who was part of the ambush admitted that a plan has been in place for the last three years to remove Katherine Jackson from her home and her beloved grandchildren."

"Prince, Paris, and Blanket Jackson have not heard from their grandmother since she left their home nine days ago to attend a series of her sons’ concerts on their Unity Tour. She never made the shows. Despite efforts to interview Katherine Jackson at her current location in Arizona yesterday, Los Angeles County Sheriffs confirmed that they were denied access to Mrs. Jackson by security for one of her children. “

The Michael Jackson Estate has also released a statement saying, "We are acutely concerned about the welfare of Mrs. Jackson, and most particularly with Michael's minor children."

The statement continues, "We are concerned that we do what we can to protect them from undue influences, bullying, greed, and other unfortunate circumstances. 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."

Remember when the rabids said that everything was fine that the media was making this all up? I do. I also remember when a certain moonwalking weirdo slept with children, and the rabids also said nothing was wrong and the media blew it up.

My point? They have no idea what they are talking about, if its in a positive light its truth.

This plan has been in place for three years? From the moment Michael Jackson died? That's very scary.

This would not be the first time greedy family members have kidnapped a rich, elderly relative for the purpose of stealing their money. I am worried that the Jackson siblings are trying to brainwash and pressure Katherine into giving money to her kids who don't deserve it. I wonder how much of her monthly $70,000 is going to support those loser sons of her as it is, and they want more. They don't care about their mother, just the money she has.

Has the whole Jackson clan gone mad!!?? WTH? MJ's siblings seem to be acting crazy! Is MJ's money fueling this greed? He made his money and its for his children and mother. If they want money then they should make their own. I feel sad for MJ's kids at the moment.

Those children's father is dead, mother took money to stay out of their lives and the only family who actually took care of them is in "Arizona" Maybe Az. If anyone has the children's best interest at heart they will bring grandma back. Then again, they are money grubbing, talentless brothers. Disgusting!

It is high time to get those kids out of there. STAT.

Forget about Diana Ross who is almost as old as Katherine. And forget about any member of the Jackson family.
