Michael Jackson’s Mum – Katherine Jackson – Reported Missing

Written by Kiel Egging on July 22, 2012

Katherine Jackson – mother of the late King of Pop Michael Jackson – has been reported missing by one of the family’s nephews.

According to CNN, Jackson’s nephew, Trent, alerted the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office of her disappearance after her grandchildren were unable to get in touch with her for a week.

The missing persons report is the latest saga in a messy dispute between the Jackson children and Katherine’s legal and financial advisors.

On Wednesday, a letter was made public in which two daughters (Rebbie and Janet) and three sons (Jermaine, Randy and Tito) charge that Jackson, 82, was being mistreated by the executors of Michael Jackson’s estate and misadvised by her manager and lawyer.

According to Jackson’s lawyer, Sandra Ribera, Jackson left her California home on July 15 to fly to Albuquerque with her eldest daughter, Rebbie.

Ribera claims that when Paris Jackson, Michael Jackson’s 14-year-old daughter, called Rebbie and Janet Jackson over the past several days, she was told each time that she could not speak to her grandmother.

“The kids were trying to get a hold of their grandmother and they haven’t been able to reach her for almost a week,” Ribera said.

“They are told she’s unavailable.  I’m concerned that she’s not safe.”

However, Jermaine Jackson, one of Katherine’s sons involved in the dispute, said his mother was fine and resting up in Arizona.

“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,” Jermaine Jackson tweeted.

“This is our mother and her health is paramount. We are not inventing or plotting anything. We are following doctor’s advice. Period,” he added.
