Katherine Jackson

PLOT CRUMBLES

Returns to L.A.

Michael Jackson's conspiratorial siblings couldn't withstand the onslaught of bad publicity ... because Randy Jackson just revealed that his mother Katherine is finally returning to L.A. -- proof the Jackson scheme has completely fallen apart.

Katherine has been holed up in Arizona for the past 10 days ... after she was effectively kidnapped by Randy and several other Jackson siblings in what appears to be a scheme to pressure Katherine to try and overthrow the executors of the Michael Jackson estate.

But moments ago, Randy -- the family ringleader -- appeared on "Good Morning America" ... and announced his mother was finally coming home ... just one day after Tito BAILED on the plot.

It's unclear if this will affect TJ Jackson's plan to seek temporary guardianship of MJ's kids.

Those family members who took part in this plot to separte Katharine Jackson from MJ's kids should be ashamed of themselves! I always thought, that despite the Jackson drama thru the years, that Janet would always be the sane one. What she and others in her family tried to do is repulsive. I've lost all respect for Janet. There should be a co-guardian of Katharine's choosing, so in case something happened to her, everything would be in place to prevent another foolish move by the greedy Jacksons.

The estate executors can prove themselves to be straight-up by bringing therapists in. This way isn't it win-win for everyone instead of young vs. old?

Not so sure Katherine is so innocent.
She's always been put on a pedestal and considered totally blameless for any part of the family dysfunction.
Nobody's that clean :D

Alas, I suspect Katherine is "part" of her children's conspiracy to unseat the trustees of the estate. Good ol greedy Joe Jackson showed how maleable his wife was all those years ago when Michael,and perhaps more children, were abused, right under Katherine's nose. Now her children have taken Joe's place in telling her where to go and what to say. I thought Janet, alone had enough dough to support the clan, but times must have really gotten tough financially of late. Also, don't discount the racial element in this. Those children are not black (with perhaps the exception of Blanket), and the trustees are NOT black. The family may not yet be explicitly saying it, but I'll bet you THAT will become a primary issue sooner rather than later.

I kind of feel bad for all of them. Michael was such an idiot for not taking care of them just a little bit. When Katherine dies they are all screwed!

The other Jacksons believe Michael's money IS their money. They all want to take credit for Michael's success and get their share his fortune. It's all part of the Jackson Family Dynasty that all of them, Katherine included have bought into. Only problem is that Paris isn't playing along. She wasn't raised to tow the family line and know her place. Her 'family' clearly doesn't think Michael's children should have any roll except to be paraded around during publicity events .

If they really cared about MJ kids, they provide a stable life for them and not take away the guardian they trust and love and all the rest of the actions after that, only because the will is a fraud or for the money. What a heartwarming and caring family this is.....NOT.

Katherine's lawyer went to AZ last night and was denied permission to see her. But guess who was there - Janet and Jermaine. He urged Janet and Jermaine to let her talk with the kids and stressed to them that she had to go back to LA.
