Why Won’t the Jackson’s let Paris Speak to Katherine?July 23rd, 2012
Paris set off the drama this weekend when she tweeted: “yes, my grandmother is missing. i haven’t spoken with her in a week i want her home now.”
Paris later tweeted a message asking anyone who’s seen her grandmother to call authorities or a number she posted. Later tweeting, “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.”
Since these tweets went out, Katherine Jackson was reported missing to Los Angeles Sherriffs officers, and was subsequently located after police confirmed they had spoken to the Jackson Matriarch , and that she is fine and resting with family members in Arizona. According to a report this morning, Katherine’s trip to Arizona was planned in advance.
Jemaine released a statement decrying the public hysteria that sprouted out of earlier reports, adding his mother was ordered to “de-stress” on the trip and not answer the phone or check the computer. He added that no one’s access has been blocked to her.
Here is the full statement from Jermaine:
Let me put to bed today’s nonsense: as I made clear some days ago, Mother is safe and well in Arizona with her daughter and our sister, Rebbie, resting up on doctor’s advice, so it is beyond me how she can be reported “missing”.
This incredulous claim was made for reasons best known to the adult/s who filed it but it seems no accident that it comes after we, the sons and daughters, put in place care-taking for our own mother, taking her to Arizona in line with doctor’s advice following a check-up.
Furthermore, it dismays me that such an alarmist “missing person” report has caused unnecessary anxiety among Michael’s children who will understandably react to what they misunderstand, hear or are told.
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.
Katharine, 82, has been raising Michael’s three kids (Prince, Paris and Blanket) following the singer’s June 25, 2009 death. Granddaughter Paris had tweeted earlier: “yes, my grandmother is missing. i haven’t spoken with her in a week i want her home now.”
