Katherine Jackson Tells Judge, Trent's So Bad I'm Hiding Out in London

EXCLUSIVE

0324-katherine-jackson-GETTY-03Katherine Jackson -- or someone claiming to be Katherine Jackson -- has doubled down in the family war, claiming again Michael's cousin, Trent, has been stealing from and bullying the matriarch. 

Katherine has been MIA for months after allegedly leveling claims Trent has pilfered $40k out of her bank account and manipulated her into buying him a Cadillac. She's also claimed elder abuse.

Trent has said it's all BS ... that Katherine isn't really driving this, but rather it's Jermaine and some of her other kids in order to get control of MJ's Estate.

In the new declaration -- obtained by TMZ -- Katherine says she's in London because she's scared to come home for fear Trent will now seek revenge on her. She says she's now filled with stress and anxiety, and she's now taking new meds to cope.

Katherine also says she's had meeting with social workers from Adult Protective Services and they will vouch for the authenticity of her claims.

The judge in the case is deciding whether he'll require Katherine's presence in court for the case against Trent to go forward.

Big news for J.R. Smith and his family ... their micro-preemie baby Dakota is thiiiis close to crossing the 3-pound mark and her breathing tube is out! 

As we previously reported, Smith's wife, Jewel, gave birth to "Kota Bear" in early January almost 5 months before her due date. Dakota only weighed 1 pound at birth.

But on the 78th day of Kota's NICU stay, Jewel says the nurse gave her the good news -- "She's not intubated anymore."

Jewel says she finally got to hold Kota without the nurses having to carefully secure the breathing tubes -- a sometimes lengthy and restrictive process.

"I was beyond excited to hold our 2 lb 13 oz miracle in the palm of my hands for the very first time." 

She added, "What some mothers get to experience within the first 2 minutes of giving birth I had to wait 78 days but, what I will say is it was worth the wait because those very feelings, emotions and joy that took over my body trumps it all."

"I kissed her little cheeks, smelled her neck, gazed into her eyes and just smiled at life...this life...her life that has now become our life! To God Be The Glory...I thank you."

Keep fighting!

Austin Rivers On LeBron's Kids: I Got Crap for Famous Dad Too ... Didn't Faze Me!

3/22/2017 10:58 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

LaVar Ball could be right in his analysis of LeBron James' kids -- 'cause Austin Rivers says he's been "getting s**t" for being Doc Rivers' son since he was 6 ... but it never fazed him.

We got Austin leaving Catch in L.A. where he APPLAUDED James for clapping back at LaVar -- who recently said Bron's kids could get crap from other kids just because he has a famous father.

LeBron told LaVar to NEVER talk about his kids ever again.

But when we asked Rivers what it was like for him growing up with an NBA star for a dad ... this was his response:

"I've been getting that since I was 6 years old just for being the son of Doc. I've been getting s**t since I was a kid ... and it's never fazed me. I'm here now and I'm only getting started."

Translation -- Rivers says the haters only motivated him to be better ... and it sounds like they still do.

He then got into a $250k Mercedes G-Wagon and drove away.

Keshia Knight Pulliam's Ex Wants Joint Custody ... Even My Ex Says I'm a Good Dad!!!

3/22/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0321-keshia-knight-pulliam-ed-hartwell-GETTY-01Keshia Knight Pulliam's ex wants joint custody of their baby girl and has a bunch of people vouching for him ... including his ex-wife.

It appears from legal docs Keshia doesn't want Ed Hartwell near their 2-month-old daughter. She claims he plotted to trigger a miscarriage during her pregnancy, something he denied.

Hartwell just filed new docs in the divorce case, asking for joint custody of Ella Grace.   

He submitted a letter from "RHOA" star Lisa Wu -- his ex wife -- singing his praises as a great dad and community man. Lisa says, "I am never worried about my child when he is with his dad, I know his dad will do everything within his power to love, protect and provide for EJ while he is not with me."

Lisa goes on, "I am positive that [Hartwell] will put his daughter's best interest first as he has shown with my children." 

Ed says in the docs he's more than willing to pay child support.

Ed filed for for divorce from Keshia last July, originally claiming there were serious doubts the child was his.

Mike Epps' Ex I Need $109k/Mo. ... This Life Is Expensive!!

3/21/2017 6:07 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0321_mike_and-michelle-epps-tmzMike Epps' estranged wife is asking him to fork over six-figures every month to support the fam ... according to new docs.

Mechelle Epps claims Mike makes $3.5 million a year, but recently cut her off from bank accounts and credit cards, leaving her high and dry with zero income. She says Mike never wanted her to work during their marriage, and now she can't land a job because she's too old at 36.

In the docs, Mechelle says she spends several thousand bucks a month on shoes and clothes for their 10 and 12-year-old girls. Plus, the girls have to get their hair braided at an "expensive salon" ... not to mention food, vacations and $72k per year for private schooling.

Mechelle says her mom handles nanny duties for a mere $3,500 monthly, plus another $600 to cover Mom's Mercedes.

According to the docs, $109,036 per month from Mike should cover everything. Mechelle also wants sole possession of their house. He filed for divorce in January 2016, but they've yet to reach a final settlement.

Katherine Jackson Jermaine's Behind Her 'Disappearance' ... Trent Claims

3/21/2017 5:30 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0321_jermaine-katherine-jackson-trent-jackson-tmz-2bKatherine Jackson's sudden vanishing act while she's allegedly claiming elder abuse at the hands of nephew Trent Jackson is being masterminded by none other than Michael's brother Jermaine ... so claims Trent in new legal documents.

Katherine got a restraining order against Trent last month, claiming in a declaration he was pilfering cash and abusing her, something Trent vehemently denies.

Now Trent and his lawyer, Ron Rale, say they have serious doubts Katherine even wrote the declaration, and they're pointing the finger at Jermaine. They note Katherine says in the declaration she's been in London and therefore did not appear in court, but Trent thinks its something more sinister.

He points to a blow-up in 2012, when Katherine disappeared and went somewhere in Arizona.   Trent claims Jermaine and some of M.J.'s other siblings essentially held her hostage, even taking away her iPad and cell phone and told her the TV was broken ... all in an effort to allegedly wrestle control away from Trent, who has been caring for Katherine since Michael died in 2009.

Trent and Rale believe history is now repeating itself and Katherine has again been stripped of her free will thanks to Jermaine and others, and it's all about controlling the M.J. Estate.

Trent is asking the judge to force the issue and either dismiss the case or make Katherine appear in court. Trent clearly believes if she shows she'll support him and say what she said back in 2012 ... that she had no idea what was going on.
