Katherine Jackson: No Plans to Sue Kids Over Custody Fiasco

by at . Comments

Katherine Jackson says she will not press charges against her kids after she was allegedly tricked into spending about 10 days shacked up at a luxury spa in Arizona without her phone in what some believe was an attempted coup against Michael Jackson's estate.

Her attorney Perry Sanders said, “This chapter of chaos is closed, and we are supportive of family unity in spite of recent events and arguably poor decisions.”

Katherine first went missing from her home in Calabasas, Calif., on July 14.

In a sworn declaration filed last week, the 82-year-old Jackson family matriarch claimed she planned to drive to see her sons perform in New Mexico on that day, but a doctor advised her to fly instead. She did as instructed.

When she got off her private plane, she found herself in Arizona.

There, she was put up at a luxury spa, cut off from technology and kept in the dark about the state of Michael’s children - Prince Michael, 15, Paris, 14, and Blanket, 10 - for days while they had no clue what was going on either.

That bizarre incident followed a letter sent by Janet Jackson and four of her siblings to the executors of Michael's estate, accusing them of making bad decisions and putting Katherine - the kids' legal guardian - in harm's way.

While she was missing, Katherine's legal custody of Michael’s children was temporarily suspended in favor of her nephew, TJ Jackson, 34.

Katherine was reinstated as guardian last Thursday.

there is a question that really bothers me. This sounds like what the brothers,sisters were trying to do to michael but they called it an intervention. Michael was the smarted he never used any legal people that the family used. and there is no family members named in the will. Michael only has his mother in the will and she can't get Michael legal teams off the astated. It's a shame that diana ross has not stepped up to the plate and taken some control Michael named her in the will. some one needs to protect his children. these are good examples of why they were so sheltered Michael new all of this before his death he took percautions he could.RIP Michael

If this 82 yr old was planning to DRIVE from CA to NM to see a concert then she needs her own guardian. Probably not true either. Just a story to cover up and stay in control while hanging onto the 80 grand a month. TRASHY.

The early teens can be very tricky for young people. Experimentation with drugs, issues of sexuality, self esteem, independence, etc all begin to break the surface pretty much at the same time. You got a 15 & 14 year old & a 10 year old approaching that stage. An 82 year old can't possibly keep up with the life issues these teens will be dealing with. Her need to control prevents her from doing what's best for the children. Step aside Katherine. Be a grandmother, not a primary guardian.

Shes is just too old- she let herself get duped and she didnt even realize it. She should not have custody of those kids.
