Mystery as Michael Jackson’s mum goes ‘missing’ for a week
MICHAEL Jackson’s mother was reported missing to police yesterday — as a family feud escalated over his multi-billion dollar will.
Katherine, 82, has not been seen by her grandchildren for more than a week.
She has been the guardian of Jacko’s kids — Prince Michael, 15, Paris, 14, and ten-year-old Prince Michael 2 — since the Thriller star, 50, died of a drugs overdose in 2009.
Paris appealed on Twitter: “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.”
Katherine’s nephew Trent filed a missing person report with LA County Sheriff’s Office. Her lawyer Sandra Ribera said her client never goes 24 hours without speaking to the children, with whom she lives in Calabasas, LA.
She said: “The kids were trying to get hold of their grandmother. They are told she’s unavailable.
“I’m concerned that she’s not safe.”
But last night son Jermaine, 57, tweeted that Katherine was “fine” and resting in Arizona with daughter Rebbie, 62, “on the orders of a doctor.”
The mystery comes days after five of her kids — Rebbie, Janet, Jermaine, Tito and Randy — wrote to executors of Jacko’s estate, claiming the signature of his will is “fake, flawed and fraudulent”, and calling on them to step down.
They say the superstar’s lawyers lied to get Katherine to increase their share of the income from his estate.
They also claim the stress caused Katherine to suffer a mini-stroke.
