Jackson Family's Dysfunctional Summer Throwdown

The more we dig into the recent drama at the Michael Jackson estate, the juicier it gets...

Ever since the police showed up at Michael’s family home on Monday, it’s been all eyes on the Jacksons. A harsh verbal exchange between Michael’s siblings and his children allegedly went down regarding the kids’ grandmother and guardian Katherine.

Hollyscoop obtained a statement from Katherine Jackson’s attorney to get her side of the story. And it ain’t pretty…

“Yesterday afternoon certain Jackson family members ambushed Katherine Jackson’s home,” the lawyer said in a statement to HS. “Their vehicle tore through security gates on the tails of the SUV containing Michael Jackson’s children.”


According to the attorney, after the vehicles parked “certain Jackson family members” ran up to the kids and began grabbing at their cellphones and shouting. Prince, Paris, and Blanket Jackson were relocated to a safe place to stay and law enforcement officers arrived on scene to sort out the dispute.

The statement continued, “Following the incident, it was learned that one of the family members who was part of the ambush admitted that a plan has been in place for the last three years to remove Katherine Jackson from her home and her beloved grandchildren.”

TMZ has published surveillance video of the incident and photographs of the scene. The evidence reveals both Janet and Randy accosting and filming the children, as well as Janet and Jermaine arguing with each other.

In addition to the recorded evidence of the drama spree, tweets from Paris’ account offer insight into the argument.

“9 days and counting… so help me god i will make whoever did this pay," she said, referring to the time it’s been since they’ve last seen Katherine.


According to reports, Katherine rarely goes 24 hours without seeing or talking to the kids. The granny eventually turned up on vacation in Arizona with her daughter, Rebbie.

Later on, Paris responded with “exactly” to a follower’s tweet, “@ParisJackson Now people can see why your dad was away from his siblings.”

The exchange has since been removed from the site.
