Prince Jackson

My Grandma Was

Mentally ABUSED

breaking news


Michael Jackson's eldest child is putting his relatives on blast -- particularly Janet Jackson -- by posting what he claims is an angry group text message convo about his grandmother Katherine Jackson.

Katherine returned from Arizona late last night, but a few hours later Prince Jackson sent out a tweet that included the text message, dated July 23rd (Monday). In it Prince says, "This is enough so I am texting you for the simple fact that WE DEMAND TO SPEAK TO MY GRANDMA NOW!!!"

A reply from "Janet Jackson" reads ... "Don't let them pls." It appears the message continued, but Prince did not post the rest of it.

In his tweet Prince also says, "Although I am happy my grandma was returned, after speaking with her I realized how misguided and how badly she was lied to. I’m really angry and hurt."

He continues, "For this whole time, they denied us contact to our grandmother. If you continue with your lies I will continue with the truth.”

Prince added a reference to his father -- "As long as I can remember my dad had repeatedly warned me of certain people and their ways."

11:20AM PT Prince has deleted the tweet ... including the screen grab of the text message.

Good job, Prince--keep speaking up. If not to us, then to the authorities. Randy, Janet, Jermaine and Rebbie all belong in prison.

California has very liberal child emancipation laws for rich celeb kids, especially those acting. Paris has an acting role, certainly Prince could too. Let those kids be emancipated and let Blanket go to TJ or someone who isn't going to let whatever house he lives in be 'home' for all the Jackson broke has-beens. These kids need a home that is THEIRS not for all their broke relatives.

I'm starting to think MJ may have been the level headed one in this family.

Prince...Do not ever trust the Jackson siblings that did this. This included Tito who did sign that letter. Your father did the right thing putting those executors in charge. He was tring to prevent you thre children from having your future ruined by these greedy people. He was a good man and smart. Do not let these people weasel their way back into your life. They are not to be trusted. And Katherine was lied to and betrayed by her own children. Terrible

Wow! Janet is really the surprise player in this game, LaToya I would have thought but never Janet. I saw on GMA where Grandma read a statement saying that her assistant had been calling to check on the children, What? Why would she not check on them, talk to them each day? MJ's will/money is the motive I'm sure, my hope is that someone who loves these children and will look beyond the money receives the honor of caring for them in the future. The children are becoming angry, I wish for them stability and true love.

They need to get Joe Jackson out of Hayvenhurst where he's been squatting. Throw his butt to the curb. Then they need to get perm restraining orders against ALL the Jacko kids! Then the kids who seem to have a good head on their shoulders need to financially be taking care of grandma & make them HER guardian & let the kids & Katherine retire peacefully in the Jackson compound. Maybe then things will calm down. Let TJ manage the kids.

Those poor kids. I really think I owe MJ an apology and am sending one out to the universe along with good wishes to those poor kids living in this mess. MJ seems to have done an excellent job of raising intelligent, well-spoken, HONEST children who won't sweep everything under the carpet, as the family seems to have done for decades. I'm glad they have the means and fortitude to do so. And major props for his “If you continue with your lies I will continue with the truth” comment. Such wisdom from 2 teenagers! Seems MJ prepared them well and truly was a great Dad...who knew?!

Katherine said, "I just gave up my phone and I didn't want to have any phone calls while I was here." She must have left instructions with the adults that she didn't want to take any phone calls.
