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.

Maybe she left because of the GRANDKIDS - Maybe she didn't want to talk to them.

If I were her, I'd be fed up with every one of them grandkids and kids.

Even sadder is the MJ fans in these comments who have to get yself worth through celebrities. The man didn't care about you, he wanted you to buy his music, but he wanted you all to leave him alone.

To me, she didn't look drugged. Exhausted, yes! She's 82. Nobody that age should have to deal with teenagers! Their energy gets the hell out of you!
I do not think she should be their guardian anymore, their grandmother yes! She'll be taken care for financially, Michael provided for that and for life, but she cannot provide for the rest.....
Now, this kids need a non-Jackson co-guardian as soon as possible! It's only 3 more years till Prince gets to be 18, hopefully this will stop because then there will be no one channeling the money but him.
I pray that these children can stay strong till 18.

Randy Jackson is a Liar. His Tweets need to be collected and used against him in some sort of legal action that will end his money-grubbing ways.

Was she actually THERE for 9 days or was it "reserved" for her? I don't think Katherine knows where she was cause I think they had her drugged up the whole time, and what about that "mini-stroke"? Where's the hospital or the doctor that diagnosed her as having had a "mini-stroke" OR was Janet, Randy and Jermaine STROKING US?

We allready saw Janet try to take Paris' phone away on camera. You think they wouldn't take one from mom?

The only thing missing from the picture was Katherine's blindfold and rope, but I guess she wouldn't have been able to read the statement prepared by her kidnappers so that they can avoid going to jail.

She let her own children get beat up.Nothing surprises me about Katherine.MJ clearly adored her mother but she isnt innocent in all of this.

Name that Doctor that checked Katherines and said high blood pressure and told her she needed time away to rest.

I have been there many times and am going this Sunday for 4 nights. I'm glad this freak show will be gone when I get there. The deal with the phones is that each room has a phone just like any other hotel room. However, the facility asks that you not use your cell phones through out the spa except in your room or the parking lot area. Maybe that is causing some of the confusion or maybe it is just a matter of the whole family and situation being wackadoodle.

If she's in good health, and her mind is still there, age is insignificant.
Betty White is 90 years old!!!
Queen Elizabeth is 86 years old!!!
