Janet Jackson Fights With Niece Paris, Conspires to ‘Kidnap’ Katherine Jackson — Report

Update: The Los Angeles Times is reporting that the altercation at Katherine Jackson’s home did not involve Paris Jackson or any of Michael Jackson’s children. “The kids were not involved,” Los Angeles County sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore told the newspaper. He declined to say which members of the Jackson family were part of the scuffle.

Original story below.

The Jacksons are having themselves quite the summer. Monday (July 23), police were called to the L.A. home of family matriarch Katherine Jackson — who was reported missing over the weekend — and now we know why. Sort of.

According to a statement from Katherine’s lawyers, available in full at Gawker.com, “certain family members” — i.e. Janet, Jermaine and Randy Jackson — “ambushed” the 82-year-old’s home by driving an SUV through her security gates. Their goal was to confiscate Michael Jackson‘s children’s cell phones and prevent them from tweeting information about the family.

What followed, reports suggest, was a physical altercation between Janet and M.J.’s 14-year-old daughter Paris. The two have butted heads recently over the latter’s showbiz aspirations, as auntie Janet evidently thinks her niece should enjoy her childhood, but there’s obviously way more to the story than that.

“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,” reads the statement from Katherine’s lawyers.

“Prince, Paris, and Blanket Jackson have not heard from their grandmother since she left their home nine days ago to attend a series of her sons’ concerts on their Unity Tour.”

So, to recap, Katherine Jackson is “resting” in Arizona, as per Jermaine, but she’s had no contact with her grandchildren in days. Janet and her siblings want their late brother’s kids to stop tweeting. And as TMZ reports, the executors of the King of Pop’s will — who have been charged with forging documents — are seeking guardianship of his children.

If any of this makes sense, you must be a Jackson.
