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.

Hayvenhurst is being remodeled and no one is living there so why does he stop and check the mail? He wants everyone to know he is back and taking over. Where is Katherine going to stay since the current Jackson home is in the name of the estate? How do you feel kids your greed has made your mom homeless.

End the drama? With him involved it will only get worse. He wants to get his hands on MJ's money more than anyone.

As if whatever plot unleashed by the Jacksons couldn't be obvious enough, Papa Joe lands to erase all doubts. T.J. would do well to file for permanent guardianship for the kids at this point; if he's worth his salt, he's already done it.

As an open comment to those members of the family behind these shena****ns: you've messed up in ways you cannot fully fathom. Your professional careers are over, Janet, Randy and Jermaine: nobody will touch any of you with a ten-foot pole unless it's to mock you or to cut you down lower than you've already gone. Your actions here have been damn near criminal: you've deprived three minor children of their legal guardian for ten days without communicating so much as a word about her whereabouts or allowing the kids to speak directly to her - hell, not even allowing Katherine's _lawyer_ to speak directly to her.

All you've done is to convince a judge that your mother cannot be free from interference in the execution of her duties as legal guardian. _Your_ interference in her execution of her duties have prevented her - and continue to prevent, in my view - from acting in the best interests of those kids. It's _not_ your mother's best interests that are being considered here, but those children. Your choice has cost you all dearly.

Wow ...    

ROL says KJ will be staying the the Encino home, until cooler heads prevail. Hmm, they do not want KJ to discuss the truth with the kids and TJ. Nor do they want Kids and TJ to see G-ma in the condition she is in, following her 'rest'. As their g-ma, wouldn't she first want to see the kids???? Is she even home yet?
