[UPDATE] Katherine Jackson Reported Missing by Family Members
11:40 AM PT – A source tells the AP that Katherine is is with her daughter Reebie and has been prescribed rest by a physician.
9:30 AM PT – Katherine’s lawyer released a statement, saying in part, “Concerned family members, particularly Michael’s children, have since made ongoing pleas to those believed to have knowledge of her location for information regarding her whereabouts. The only reports provided have been both conflicting and confusing — especially those pertaining to the status of Katherine Jackson’s health. When Michael’s children last saw their grandmother on July 15, 2012, she was in great health physically as well as mentally.”
She continued, “Prince, Paris, and Blanket are the light of Katherine Jackson’s life, as she is to those children. Out of concern for Mrs. Jackson’s well-being and in an effort to ensure her being safely reunited with her grandchildren as soon as possible, a report was filed on Saturday with the Sheriff’s Department who will be investigating this matter.”
Okay…this doesn’t sound good at all. The mother of one of the most famous families on the planet, which includes Michael and Janet Jackson, has been reported missing. Katherine Jackson has never gone more than 24 hours without speaking to her grandchildren, so we just hope she comes home soon.
Mrs. Jackson’s nephew reported her missing late last night (Saturday) after her grandchildren had been unable to contact her after a week. Jermaine Jackson tweeted that Katherine was in Arizona “resting up on doctor’s orders.” but Paris Jackson (Michael Jackson’s daughter) tweeted the contrary, saying ”yes, my grandmother is missing. i haven’t spoken with her in a week i want her home now.”
Paris also retweeted a couple of supportive tweets from others wishing for Mrs. Jackson’s safe return:
As previously reported, the Jackson family has been feuding of late … with Randy, Jermaine, Tito, Rebbie and Janet Jackson seeking to have the executors of the Michael Jackson Estate resign from their positions.
A letter that leaked on the internet, written by the aforementioned Jacksons, claimed 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.’”
There has been an update, but it still sounds shaky.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department issued a release that says, “Katherine Jackson is reportedly with family members. Late Saturday night, a different family member reported that he was unable to speak with her and is concerned for her well being. Deputies are continuing to make efforts to reach her and ask that she contact the Malibu / Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.”
