Jackson Drama Continues

For the past couple weeks, the entire Jackson family has been in an uproar over Michael’s will and his children’s legal guardianship.

On July 17th, 5 of Michael’s siblings accused the executors of the will of fraud and said the will itself was a fake, although this matter has already been previously resolved by the Los Angeles County Superior Court, the California Court of Appeals, and also the California Supreme Court.

Shortly after these accusations were made, Michael’s mother, Katherine Jackson was reported missing by a Jackson cousin who said Katherine had been gone for a week. Jermaine Jackson came forward, saying that Katherine had been staying in Arizona with family, leaving Michael’s children alone in her Calabasas home. Why weren’t the children told where their grandmother was going? Especially since she was their legal guardian?

Two days later, there was a physical altercation between Janet Jackson and Michael’s daughter Paris. Talk about family drama!  Janet reportedly slapped Paris across the face and then called her a “spoiled little b***h.” Paris then fired back, telling Janet to leave in a not-so-polite manner. Many celebrities have sided with Janet, saying Paris was being bratty and should not have been talking back. I can only ask, who here is the child and who is the adult? Janet is supposed to be an example and caregiver as an aunt. Her behavior was simply childish. One family member also said that a plan had been in place for years to try and remove the children from their grandmother’s custody, but why?

The following day, T.J. Jackson, son of Tito, was given temporary guardianship over Prince, Paris, and Blanket. As soon as custody was removed from Katherine, she left Arizona and flew back to her home. Katherine’s lawyer is reportedly getting ready to try and get joint guardianship with T.J., though T.J.’s sister, Tanay, says she believes Katherine no longer needs to care for the children, that she needs a rest.

It’s hard to tell if all this drama is over Michael’s will and money or if it is over the actual care of his children. Much of it seems to be merely a miscommunication of those involved. I can’t imagine having to be the judge who had to sift through all the issues to try and figure out what really needs to happen to these children. The more that comes out about the drama, the crazier the whole Jackson family seems.

As weird a man as Michael Jackson was, he was an incredible father and nothing like this ever happened in the public eye while he was still living. Hopefully the whole mess can be resolved soon so that his children do not have to suffer even more heart ache and pain.
