Katherine Jackson, the mother of legendary artist Michael Jackson, has been reported as missing. But the case is anything but clear cut.
Katherine's nephew Trent filed the report with the the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office, claiming he has not heard from his aunt in over a week, but Jermaine Jackson responded to the claim by sending the following Tweet:
"I want to reassure everyone (inc all sudden medical experts) that Mother is fine but is resting up in AZ on the orders of a doctor, not us. This is our mother and her health is paramount. We are not inventing or plotting anything. We are following doctor's advice. Period."
This confusion is the latest in an ongoing family dispute, as five of Katherine's kids sent a letter this week that allege their mother is being mistreated by the executors of Michael Jackson's estate.An attorney for Katherine, Sandra Ribera, says her client flew to New Mexico on July 15 to attend a concert… but granddaughter Paris Jackson then tried to get in touch with Katherine at her aunt's Rebbie's house and was told on multiple occasions this week that she was not permitted to do so.
"yes, my grandmother is missing . i haven't spoken with her in a week i want her home now," Paris Tweeted today.
Katherine Jackson has not called her three grandchildren, who have resided with her for the last three years, since last Sunday, Ribera added, saying she "has never gone 24 hours without talking to her kids... We have no idea what's going on with her. No one has talked to her."
