Katherine Jackson: Alive and Well in Arizona

by at . Comments

It looks like the search for Katherine Jackson can be called off.

A few hours after police were told this family matriarch was missing, with many relatives - including 14-year old Paris Jackson - calling for information on the 82-year old's location, Jermaine Jackson posted a long message on Twitter that explained the situation.

"Let me put to bed today's nonsense: as I made clear some days ago, Mother is safe and well in Arizona with her daughter and our sister, Rebbie, resting up on doctor's advice, so it is beyond me how she can be reported 'missing,' the singer wrote.

Jermaine continued, putting to bed all claims of a controversy or cover-up:

"This incredulous claim was made for reasons best known to the adult/s who filed it but it seems no accident that it comes after we, the sons and daughters, put in place care-taking for our own mother, taking her to Arizona in line with doctor's advice following a check-up.

"Furthermore, it dismays me that such an alarmist 'missing person' report has caused unnecessary anxiety among Michael's children who will understandably react to what they misunderstand, hear or are told.

"No-one is being 'blocked' from speaking with Mother. She is merely an 82-year-old woman following doctor's orders to rest-up and de-stress, away from phones and computers. Everyone has been well aware of this within the family, but I would like to reiterate my reassurance to the outside world that Mother is fine. In the meantime, thank you for all your thoughts and concerns."

I'm looking forward to finding out more about aeg, etc. Lots of intertesting info about Branca & who surrounded Michael b4 he died. Sad about his kids but I don't get why no one's realized Jermaine posted where she was 3-4 days b4 Paris' tweet where Grndma was. hellloooooo


Seems funny. Wouldnt it be more stressful to be cut off from the children and the rest of the family? The whole thing seems fishy, like they want to do or say something without everyone knowing.


I call BS. I don't know any doctor that would tell a patient they can't use the phone to talk with her grandkids because she needs rest. That's absurd! In fact, doctors always recommend keeping in regular contact with family when you are older. I'm sure Katherine would speak to them if she could, so why are they not letting her? I smell a shady cover-up here...


She went to see Michael. Daaa.


Not understood at all. I don't care how old you are. If you are legally responsible for children, you don't go off for a week and NOT call them. Those kids have already been through the trauma of losing their father. Imagine how frightening it was to not be allowed to talk to their own grandmother? I mean, imagine what must have been going through their minds?
