Katherine Jackson, the Mother of Michael Jackson and Guardian of his Three children, who was reported missing on Saturday has been found. She is presently with a family member in Arizona, authorities said late Sunday, one day after another relative reported her missing.
Katherine Jackson is with her daughter Rebbie in Arizona, following a doctor’s orders to “de-stress” and stay away from the phone and computers, her son Jermaine Jackson said in a statement late Sunday.
Michael Jackson‘s 82-year old mother has been reported missing in the midst of a growing dispute between several of Jackson’s children and her advisers over her finances and legal affairs.
Katherine Jackson was reported missing by her nephew, Trent, after her grandchildren were unable to get in touch with her for a week according to CNN.
Jermaine Jackson disputed the claim. He tweeted that his mother is following doctors orders and resting.
“Outsiders, from Alan Duke to TMZ ‘sources’, can clutch at straws all day long but no-one can tell us about events concerning our own mother,” Jermaine tweeted.
“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.”
Several hours later Michael‘s daughter Paris, disagreed with Jermaine and asked for help in finding her grandmother.
“Yes , my grandmother is missing . i haven’t spoken with her in a week i want her home now,” Paris tweeted.
“If anybody sees my grandmother , please call the authorities or this number— (818)-876-0186 it’s the security number .. thank you so much.”
TMZ is reporting that this all stems from a dispute involving Randy, Jermaine, Tito, Rebbie and Janet Jackson.
They are seeking to have the executors of the Michael Jackson Estate resign from their positions.
In a letter that leaked to the internet the family claims that John Branca and John McClain had “taken advantage of the family … and have stressed out Katherine Jackson so much, that she recently suffered a mini-stroke.’
