It was reported this morning that Michael Jackson’s mother, Katherine Jackson has been reported missing, but the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is now saying that she might be sage with family members. The police are asking her to contact them. One family member reported her missing on Saturday night, however they think that she might be with a different family member. This story is developing…
The matriarch’s nephew came to the Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station in Agoura Hills to file a missing persons report because the popstar’s three children haven’t been able to get in touch with their 82-year-old grandmother for almost a week.
14-year-old Paris Jackson, Michael’s daughter, posted on Twitter Sunday that her grandmother is, in fact, missing.
She said, “yes, my grandmother is missing. i haven’t spoken with her in a week i want her home now.”
Katherine’s attorney, Sandy Ribera, told CBS2 in an email that the elder Jackson was supposed to go to New Mexico last weekend in an RV to watch her sons perform on their Unity Tour. However, a man who claimed to be sent by her doctor came to her Calabasas home and convinced her to fly.
Ribera claims Katherine’s longtime physician didn’t send the man, and the doctor Katherine did see has ties to Conrad Murray, the man convicted in connection to the death of Michael Jackson.
Paris reaffirmed that via Twitter early Sunday.
She said, “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.”
Ribera said Katherine’s family wants to know where she is staying.
“Concerned family members, particularly Michael’s children, have 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,” said Ribera.
However, Jermaine Jackson tweeted Saturday his mother is doing okay.
“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,” he said.
The sheriff’s department is investigating.
Katherine has been at the center of a messy dispute between some of her children and advisors over money and legal matters.
