LOS ANGELES --Katherine Jackson, mother to the late pop icon Michael Jackson and guardian to his children, has been reported missing. No one has seen or heard from her for more than a week.
The 82-year-old matriarch of the famous Jackson family was allegedly last seen about a week ago and one of her nephews reported her missing to the Los Angeles Police Department on Saturday.
However the story gets stranger for son Jermaine tweeted two days ago that his mom Katherine was supposedly resting in Arizona on doctors orders. Below are some of his tweets.
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.
@KingMikeJ It is a prescribed rest for an 82-year-old lady, not a vacation. Everything else you raise is a misinformed rumor
Incidentally, her doctor is the same one who testified on behalf of Dr. Conrad Murray, convicted of manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson. Michael's daughter Paris tweeted this bit of info Sunday.
This missing story comes a few days after a legal family feud where members of the Jackson clan went to court contesting brother Michael Jackson's will, claiming it was a fraud.
Michael Jackson left everything to his mother and three children, to be executed by his lawyers. Some of the family says their brother did not sign that will and that his signature was forged.
Though Jermaine says his mother is fine, Michael's daughter Paris is saying otherwise about her grandmother's disappearance, taking to Twitter to plead for her return. Below are some of her tweets.
if anybody sees my grandmother , please call the authorities or this number— (818)-876-0186 it's the security number .. thank you so much.
The same doctor that testified on behalf of dr murray saying my father was a drug addict (a lie) is caring for my grandmother... just sayin.
yes, my grandmother is missing . i haven't spoken with her in a week i want her home now.
As of this time, there has been no official word from the family or the LAPD so this is still an alleged missing case and could simply be more Jackson family drama. The collective relatives are not worried enough to put out a statement or halt their concerts, so this just may be more smoke than fire. Let's hope that it is.
The Internet is agog with the news, but the mainstream media is not reporting on it which adds to this not being as it seems.
Stay tuned for further developments.
