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.

First of all, why couldn't she and her children tell her grandchildren that she would be at that spa? Why couldn't she call through those days she was there? Something is not right and Michael Jackson's children need to be protected by SECURITY AT ALL TIMES. All of this, is for the Money Michael left his Mother and children. What has happened is very serious and the children should be with someone who could take care of them and protect them from this Family.

I am sick and tired of people saying that she loves those kids. She doesn't give a rats heini about them, she resents them for getting money that she thinks should go to her kids. The only reason she keeps them is to keep the money flowing. She completely failed Michael and she is now failing his children. This woman is spineless and weak. I just don't know why Michael put her down as their guardian, maybe he thought she had learned from not protecting him. He loved her and love makes people blind, she will never change. If that woman would have pulled her head out of her anus he would still be alive, instead she was perfectly content to take, take, take and spread it out to the other losers in this family. God help those kids, they have it hard enough with their father dead and no mother to speak off. If MJ would know what's happening he would be spinning in his grave like a fan blade. Those kids will never be rid of those disgusting, low life moochers. I just hope whatever their dad instilled into them will help them to rise above all this.

OMG TMZ give it a rest. This woman is 82 yrs-old and if she didn't want to be bothered with those spoiled, entitled, brats, she has that right. They were told she was OK and resting, and they had adult supervision. That's all they needed to know. Rules are bit different in a black household.

I've been right here Cindy. I fully well understand that Mrs. Jackson receives personal maintenance, as well as a separate maintenance for Michael's children, from the estate, as was stipulated in MJ's will. I also understand that she was willed 50% of the estate’s earnings and is a co-trustee of said estate. She has also been the legal guardian to MJ’s children. Each of these factors point to the fact that she has a great deal of influence on all things MJ, something that, thankfully, cannot be said for the rest of his family. Also, don't forget that Michael Jackson was in serious financial straits before he passed. To most educated people, it would appear that the structuring of the estate has worked very well up until this point. As the estate has continued to grow, why fix it if it ain't broke???

Yes they might have had a phone line but did she have her cell phone. I can barely remember any numbers now because of cell phone technology let alone a 86 year old lady

It is all about the money with every Jackson family member. The Courts should see this and award full custody to Diana Ross where they would be cared for well.
