Here is the latest in the ever-growing Jackson family saga:
With Katherine Jackson supposedly safe and sound in Arizona, Marlon, Tito and Jackie Jackson appeared on The Insider yesterday and expressed consternation and anger over the whereabouts of their mother.
"We've been told that our mother is safe," Marlon told Kevin Frazier. "She's doing well. But we have not spoken to her. We have not talked to her and I don't know where my mother is."
The brother of Michael Jackson then choked up and grew animated. He lashed out:
"All I know is she is in Arizona, and whatever doctor is saying I can't talk to my mother you call ME!"Marlon's sibling, Randy, claims he whisked Katherine off to Arizona under doctor's orders. But no one has been able to explain why she's gone nearly two weeks now without making any contact with some of her kids and all three of her grandchildren.
As a result of this mystery, TJ Jackson is pursuing legal avenues to take over guardianship of Paris, Prince and Blanket (MJ's daughter and sons).
Most believe this giant mess is related to Michael Jackson's will, which is being contested by Randy Jackson because it leaves the entirety of the singer's estate to his children and he's now using Katherine to try and get the document invalidated.
Tito Jackson, however, backed away from that plot this week, publicly stating that he wanted nothing to do with a letter sent by Jermaine, Janet, Rebbie and Randy that challenged the authority and actions of the executor's of MJ's will.
"I completely retract my signature from the July 17th letter sent to the Executors of my brother Michael's estate and repudiate all the claims made against them," Tito told TMZ. "I don't want any part of that letter whatsoever."
