Michael Jackson's Children Seeking "Temporary Guardian"
Video surveillance has surfaced showing Michael Jackson's siblings getting into an altercation outside the family home after Randy, Jermaine and Janet allegedly tried to take away the King of Pop's three children on Monday night (July 23).
Michael's kids, Prince, Paris and Blanket Jackson, have been without a legal guardian since Katherine Jackson disappeared more than a week ago and, yesterday, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department responded to a "family disturbance" following an "ambush" attempt to whisk the children away.
A statement released by Katherine Jackson's lawyer, Sandra L. Ribera, explains, "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."
Following the incident, Prince, Paris and Blanket Jackson were taken to a "safe place" and - according to ABC News - the trio met with a court appointed child advocate on Monday night in an attempt to reach Katherine. Meanwhile, court papers could be filed this week demanding Katherine have access to the children while also requesting a temporary guardian.
With Katherine having been reported missing on Saturday, her children issued a statement saying the missing person's report was "created by the very person and persons we are trying to protect our mother from."
Paris has not heard from her grandmother since the disappearance and has been using Twitter to express her anger, tweeting Tuesday morning, "9 days and counting… so help me god i will make whoever did this pay." She added, "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 saying."
Michael's brother, Jermaine Jackson, tweeted an extended message on Sunday, reading in part, "No-one is being 'blocked' from speaking with Mother. She is merely an 82-year-old woman following doctor's orders to rest-up and de-stress, away from phones and computers. Everyone has been well aware of this within the family, but I would like to reiterate my reassurance to the outside world that Mother is fine. In the meantime, thank you for all your thoughts and concerns."
Jermaine also released a statement earlier this week saying the situation is "a conspiracy to deflect attention away from a letter we wrote asking for the resignation of executors" of Michael Jackson's will.
Michael left his entire fortune to his mother and three kids, but last week five of his siblings made the claim that his will was fake and now they want the executors of his estate, John McClain and John Blanca, to resign.
In response, the attorney of the Jackson estate, Zia Modabber, says, "They [executors of the will] will not stand down because the siblings who were left out of Michael's will want them to."
