Katherine Jackson Attorney: ‘Family Members Ambushed Michael Jackson’s Children! [Details]

Rucuss staffJuly 24, 2012

Katherine Jackson’s attorney has released a statement detailing the change of events surrounding the incident that took place at the Jackson family home in Calabasas, Calif. on Monday.

Katherine, who was reported missing by a family member last Saturday, turned up at her daughter Rebbie Jackson’s home. But she has not spoken to her grandchildren Paris, Prince and Blanket in nine days.

This is the longest she’s gone without speaking to Michael’s kids, which she has custody of since Michael died in 2009. Paris Jackson tweeted on Tuesday: “9 days and counting… so help me god i will make whoever did this pay.”

Sources told TMZ they believe some of Katherine’s children are trying to brainwash their mother in an effort to gain control of the $70,000 a month she receives from Michael’s estate. Michael left his entire fortune to Katherine and his children.

Katherine’s lawyers have released a statement to RumorFix:

“Yesterday afternoon 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. 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.

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. Prince, Paris, and Blanket Jackson have not heard from their grandmother since she left their home nine days ago to attend a series of her sons’ concerts on their Unity Tour. She never made the shows. Despite efforts to interview Katherine Jackson at her current location in Arizona yesterday, Los Angeles County Sheriffs confirmed that they were denied access to Mrs. Jackson by security for one of her children.”

The executors of  Michael’s estate, John Branca and John McClain, also issued a statement expressing their concern:

“We thank the fans for their keen interest in the matters that have been reported on recently regarding the Estate and Mrs. Jackson.

We will not comment any further on the letter we received from certain of the Jackson siblings.  We think our letter in response speaks for itself.

We are acutely concerned about the welfare of Mrs. Jackson, and most particularly with Michael’s minor children.   We are concerned that we do what we can to protect them from undue influences, bullying, greed, and other unfortunate circumstances.  While we do not have standing to directly intervene, we have monitored the situation and will continue to do so.

We believe measures are being put in place that will help protect them from what they are having to deal with.We take these matters very seriously and will continue to report on them as appropriate”
