According to Katherine’s lawyers, “Certain Jackson family members ambushed Katherine Jackson’s home after their vehicle tore through security gates on the tails of the SUV containing Michael Jackson’s children.”
“After exiting their vehicles, Jackson family members ran up to Michael’s children as they yelled and began to aggressively grab at the cell phones in their hands,” says the statement, adding, “Out of concern for the well being of Prince, Paris and Blanket Jackson, the children were forced to temporarily leave their home and taken to a safe location. An altercation ensued shortly thereafter and law enforcement arrived at the scene.”
An L.A. County Sheriff’s spokesman confirmed there was indeed a physical altercation between two unnamed individuals, but no one was arrested.
A possible battery is under investigation, said the spokesman.
Katherine’s legal team further claimed, “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.”
On Saturday, Katherine’s nephew Trent Jackson reported the family matriarch “missing” after her grandchildren were unable to get in touch with her for a week.
Michael Jackson’s daughter Paris even tweeted, “my grandmother is missing. i haven’t spoken with her in a week i want her home now.”
“If anybody sees my grandmother, please call the authorities,” she added.
Katherine, it was later discovered, is in Arizona with her daughter Rebbie – though she’s still not had any contact with Michael’s children.
Jermaine Jackson 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.”
He noted at the time, “We are not inventing or plotting anything. We are following doctor’s advice. Period.”
Curiously, though, Jermaine was one of the family members who was on Katherine’s property in Calabasas, California on Monday when the alleged “ambush” took place.
