Joe Jackson

Returns to L.A. --

Don't Forget About Me!

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.

We are Joe Jackson's long time friends. Even though he is 83 years old. He will straighten this all out. He was NOT in Las Vegas the whole time, He just got back from a long stay in Japan. I believe Joe maybe disciplined his kids way out of proportion, But if he never did, A few of his kids would have been in jail and we would have never see a Michael Jackson.

He's going there to make sure she never talks again. He'll be there a few days, she'll "pass in her sleep" and Joe will release a statement saying that Katherine was "fine".
CPS needs to get those kids out of there.

This family is in such need of attention, they don't understand how transparent they are. All of them, all the time.
