What in the world is going on with the Jacksons? Last Wednesday, a letter was made public in which several of Michael Jacksonâ€™s siblings charged that their mother Katherine Jackson was â€œbeing mistreated by the executors of Michael Jackson’s estate and mis-advised by her manager and lawyer,â€ according to CNN. I didnâ€™t think much of the claims, as Michaelâ€™s estate is worth hundreds of millions and feuds over how itâ€™s distributed are unfortunately par for the course, even though heâ€™s been gone for three years.
But I was alarmed when I woke up Sunday morning to news that Paris Jackson, Michaelâ€™s oldest daughter, was claiming that her grandmother, who has been the primary caretaker for Paris and her two brothers since their father died, was AWOL. â€œYes, my grandmother is missing,” tweeted the 14-year-old. â€œI haven’t spoken with her in a week i [sic] want her home now.” In another tweet, Paris gave out her bodyguard’s phone number and asked people to call the police if they saw her grandmother. A Jackson nephew reported Mrs. Jackson, 82, missing, and Mrs. Jacksonâ€™s own attorney noted that she has never gone more than 24 hours without speaking to the children since becoming their primary caretaker.
