The Jackson family home is the site of family "scuffle" caught on camera by TMZ.
Tensions are rising in the Jackson family and things have reached a critical breaking point.
According to ABC, the Los Angeles police department were called to Katherine Jackson’s home in response to a “family disturbance.” Apparently, Randy, Jermaine and Janet Jackson showed up to the Calabasas home unannounced and tried to take away Michael’s three kids, Prince, Paris and Blanket.
Katherine Jackson’s lawyer released a statement regarding the incident. “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,” read the statement. “An altercation ensued shortly thereafter and law enforcement arrived at the scene.” The police report indicates no arrests were made, but TMZ cameras captured Janet and Jermaine outside the house allegedly engaged in a heated conversation.
To add fuel to the fire, executors of Jackson’s estate, John Branca and John McClain, are supporting TJ Jackson’s (Tito’s son) motion to obtain temporary guardianship of the three kids, reports TMZ. Branca and McClain maintain that Katherine has been kidnapped by her own children. Because of recent trouble in the family, the executors feel as though the Jackson kids are in danger. TJ tweeted to Paris, “I know it’s completely unfair for them to do this to you and your brothers. We will keep trying. I love you.”
Last week, Katherine went missing but was found in Arizona at the home of her eldest daughter Rebbie. As of this morning, Paris still hasn’t spoken to her grandmother. “Nine days and counting,” she tweeted this morning. “So help me God, I will make whoever did this pay.”
Allegedly, the source of all this family tension comes from a letter several Jackson siblings wrote accusing Branca and McClain of fraud. Randy, Jermaine, Janet, Rebbie and Tito have been trying to convince Katherine that Michael’s will was a fraud. Together, the siblings have been devising a plan for months.
Since the incident, Prince, Paris and Blanket have been removed from Katherine’s home and taken to a secure location.
