Katherine Jackson

Had FULL Phone Access

at Arizona Resort

Katherine Jackson
had FULL ACCESS to a working phone during her stay in Arizona and could easily have called her grandkids whenever she wanted ... so says a rep for the resort.

A spokesperson for the Miraval Resort -- where Katherine stayed for nine days, beginning last week -- tells TMZ, Katherine stayed in a luxury villa that DEFINITELY contained a working phone.

For the record ... the villa also came with a full kitchen, a private patio, its own pool ... and its own butler.

And if full phone access wasn't enough -- Katherine also had FREE WI-FI.

Bottom line ... the Miraval Resort is adamant ... Katherine wasn't as cut off from the outside world as she previously claimed.

After yesterday's court hearing, Katherine's lawyer was asked why she wasn't allowed to use a phone to call her grandkids -- and her lawyer said he was told "the section of the facility she stayed at didn't allow phones of any kind. Or computers."

The Miraval rep insists ... that's just not true.

ohoh... I think someone needs to be accountable for the suffering of those children and their grandmother as well... I think the kids being taken away from her custody is enough

So what else is new, she's a liar. Something ain't right. Perhaps she's senile or has Alzheimers.

Who would have ever guessed that LaToya would be the sane one?

So, the plot thickens. Ruh Roh, not sounding good for her and those that took her there for a **cough, cough** "vacation/break." D*mn bastages are lazy, phukin VULTURES. I wouldn't be surprised if we see Randy/Jermaine in the news for not paying child support, now that Katherine's been cut off from the $70,000/per month of guardianship funds.

Maybe Katharine was just being *****rdly about spending for out-of-state tolls. Hotel long-distance rates can be mighty expensive, you know.

This family continues to be unbalanced and will do ANYTHING for money. They are not emotionally abusing ANOTHER generation of Jackson's... So effed up.

Get those kids away from her. As a parent/guardian you can't just pick up and take off without warning and without having proper care in place for kids. And you certainly can't be unreachable for them. She doesn't deserve them. Those poor kids-she was once their only hope at having a normal life. Now even she has failed them.

Oh Please    

How crappy can you be that the only child that is providing for you in life has his own children under your protection and you can't even provide a decent explanation on why you couldn't even talk to them for 9 days. As soon as you find out that your pot of gold may be taken from you, you decide to come home and play Grandma again. Geez, no wonder her spawns are so freak'n messed up!

Joe beat the living daylight out of her, turned her into a Jehovah's Witness — PRAISE THE LORD! Now, she can't remember to call her gravy train grandkids. THE LORD GIVETH AND THE LORD TAKETH AWAY!
