Joe Jackson

Returns to L.A. --

Don't Forget About Me!

7/25/2012 1:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0725_joe_jackson_RameyBecause no Jackson family drama is complete without Papa Joe ... Katherine's estranged husband has finally come to town ... and moments ago, he arrived to the family's famous home in Encino, CA.

It's the first time we've seen Joe Jackson since Katherine was reported missing over the weekend.

Joe -- who spends most of his time in Vegas and rarely comes to L.A. -- pulled up at the Jackson compound roughly 30 minutes ago in a black Mercedes with Nevada plates, wearing his trademark fedora. We're told he checked the mail and disappeared into the home.

Katherine is currently on her way back to L.A.

No word on how long Joe plans to stay in town ... or if he plans to meet up with the family to try to end the drama.

There he is. I thought he must be in a coma somewhere since we hadn't heard from him during this mess.

Papa Joe showed up cause he heard that TV got some of Michael's money, and of course Joe wants TJ to turn over the money to Papa Joe, the old dirty pimp!

Ah yes. Let's not forget about the most dysfunctional member of this royally fed up family. I'm sure if Michael was still with us Joe would be beating the money out of him by now.

He CAN'T go to Calabasas because that's Michael's home which belongs to the Estate. I think the Hayvenhurst home is where Janet, Randy and Jermaine live.
Yes it was renovated, but after they were done with the house, Kathrine decided she wanted to stay in the new house where they are now which is where they had moved to while the renovation was under way.

Yup    

And now it's complete, with the arrival of pimp-daddy Joe. This piece of sh*t must have smelled money to cause him to pull himself out of the slime to show up.

Oh yeah; this is "family values". But, we've got to make sure gay men & women don't get married, because they'll "degrade" this mess you see here...

I was at the Ralphs grocery in Encino and came face to face with Joe Jackson. This must have been right before he drove up the street to Hayvenhurst! He was carrying a small bag--shopping for one, obviously!
