Katherine Jackson Wants The Kids Back


Katherine Jackson is back in Los Angeles and met with her lawyer yesterday. He says she is fine and that this is all a big misunderstanding. Uh huh. That is why the relatives kidnapped and drugged her and then tried to kidnap the kids. It's pretty obvious that Katherine should not be the one in charge of them right now. Let her live with the kids and be there with them, but I don't know if I want her to be the one in charge. Of course, the kidnappers also have kind of screwed themselves because they won't have access to that free flow of money if their mother is not guardian of the kids.


This was just a money grab that backfired because people didn't think everything through properly. They just start seeing all those dollar signs and not working and doing nothing and it is getting harder to do that with each passing generation because there are more and more people trying to live off the Michael Jackson dollar.

I agree. Those kids are still too young, and Katherine is no match for her conniving children. They need a new guardian. I'm ok with TJ if he's as responsible and dedicated as he seems to be. I just wish he wasn't so closely related to Tito.

Cleodacat said...

I have to say that the kids seem to be pretty level headed and mature for their years. Maybe emancipation would be an option for Prince and Paris.

surfer said...

I completely agree that she should be able to live with the kids, but no longer be in charge.

I still believe that Randy is the ringleader - really, what else does he do besides cause trouble? At lease the other brothers (and that's not saying much) are out there trying to earn a living with their concerts (again, that's not saying much).

I'm also with those who believe the only reason Janet became involved in this was solely to get them off her back.

Syko said...

This lady is 82 years old and obviously easily influenced by her evil children. Yes, live with the grandkids, but let someone else hold the wallet.

Jessi said...

You know something is really wrong when LaToya is embarrassed of this mess. Seriously who would have thought she would be the sane one right now? I have gained a little more respect for her....but just a little.

annabella said...

it is remarkable how level headed and mature paris is, and maybe prince as well. paris is in the limelight more. I consider it truly remarkable considering how crazy everyone thought michael was. he must have been a wonderful father, despite his problems with prescription drugs (and possibly abusing children who weren't his).

there is no excuse for janet doing what she did.

the jacksons need to grow up and stop trying to live large off of micheal's dead bones.

liteNOTSObrite said...

I don't understand what role Janet plays in this if it is a money grab. She is worth a gazillion dollars.

auntliddy said...

She doesnt want to share!!! If relatives are using michaels money, she can keep hers and not hv to bail them out!!

*karen* said...

I think that MJ was irreparably damaged by his childhood and probably did a lot of inappropriate things with children. I don't think that he had malicious intent, though.

The fact that he raised intelligent children who aren't out misbehaving, doing drugs (that we know of), etc. makes me think that he did a great job with them. They speak/tweet lovingly and respectfully about him and that goes pretty far to raise my opinion of him.

auntliddy said...

Agree with everyone who says katherine cld live with kids but not hold wallet
If you think about it, like 5 or 6 jacksons' combined brain power cldnt come up with plan to foil 82 yr old lady, and 3 kids under age 16!! Pathetic right there!! Of course, they are disgraceful.

luckylass said...

For some reason I haven't kept up with this story (i guess it is just too sad), do we know exactly who drugged her and conspired against her?

Where is Detective LaToya?

B. Profane said...

The two older ones are so close to being able to file for emancipation that there's precious little money to be had out of grabbing the guardianship, plus they're old enough that the judge will take their wishes into consideration.

Patty said...

Based on Prince's tweet yesterday, the lessons MJ taught them (warnings of others) has stayed with them.

But seriously, where is LaToya? Did they do something to her? Send her to a "spa in Siberia or something?

MISCH said...

the ironic part is now Katherine will have less money to give her lovely children....

AuntJess said...

I have a sneaky feeling those kids would have been "at the spa" with gram for quite a bit if Janet and henchmen Randy and Jermaine managed to get the cell phones away from them. That surveillance video would have disappeared too.

Henriette said...

Go back and play Uno in Arizona honey.

cc423 said...

Puh-Leeeeeeze lady. Dig a Xanax out of the couch and go back to the Uno game. These kids are better off with someone who does not abandon them with no contact for days on end.

Weird

Aly said...

Well, keep in mind that Katherine receives a fee of 70K/month as a payment to be the guardian for the three children. That is a chunk of change for any or all of the underemployed siblings

SilverOnyx said...

@ jessi, you are dead on! I literally just googled "where the f is latoya" last night. Then tmz had her staying out of the mess and seems to be on the kids side this morn. Who would have guessed shed be one of the saner ones??

Also, Paris like set this whole thing off, it was so smart of her. She's so beautiful and like put together for a 14 year old. Hope whatever happens the kids are protected. Ps this would be an awesome movie.

*karen* said...

I don't think that Katherine "abandoned" them; she was supposedly going to some event in MJ's honor and never made it there because her children abducted her. Even a full-time guardian or parent is allowed to go out of town. I don't think that this is her fault at all, except for trusting her effed up children.

*karen* said...

@SilverOnyx, a movie or book would be perfect.

"How My Dad Turned Out to be the Sane One: The Paris Jackson Story"

Henriette said...

Yeah, I cannot believe MJ was actually the sane one in the family and La Toya second.

Agent**It said...

^^ LOL

cbb said...

I haven't really been following this saga and I totally regret it! This is completely bizarre. WHERE HAVE I BEEN?

misskania said...

@karen: I agree, who knows that behind all that news about his personal lifestyle, he is actually a good father and he taught his children how to survive and beat those all money hungry relatives (read: zombies)

Is she still a Jehovah's Witness? Cause I know a lot and they are level headed and kind people, but yeah does anyone know if Katherine is still a J.W?

__-__=__ said...

I think LaToya decided to save herself. Good for her. And sounds like MJ taught those kids well. I hope they're learning accounting and other money stuff. Janet needs to follow LaToyas lead. Just say NO to family leeches.

Brenda L said...

I can't wait to follow these kids through their life adventures. I like these kids.

angel said...

Katherine Jackson says she's had a change of heart ... and is now ready to split guardianship of MJ's 3 children with her grandson TJ.

Katherine's lawyer says the agreement would still empower Katherine to CONTROL THE FAMILY'S ALLOWANCE ... which is $70k per month.

Story developing ...

didi67 said...

what a bunch of dumbasses. These bumbling idiots completely screwed themselves...hahahaha. I mean that ridiculous interview with janet and jermaine hovering over katherine was pathetic and i love how the kids are fearless in calling these fools out.

JoElla said...

This sounds like the modern day Gloria Vanderbuilt story.

hang on kids, many are pulling for you! <3

MadLyb said...

I agree that Katherine should still live in the house, but she no longer should be their guardian. I know so many older ladies who are easily scammed by every con that comes along. She is obviously easily manipulated because she loves her kids, and of course thinks the best of them.

I agree that Randy is the head trouble maker. He wasn't even in the original Jackson 5, so he's sort of used to living off the family dole, though he did replace Jermaine at one point. Didn't they even marry the same woman? Weird and ironic.

pilly said...

Isn't there an "issue" with the church? Weren't they members of the JW? Some left (Janet). I was thinking that had something to do w this bullshit situation

Bangagong said...

Why do people always diss Tito? Maybe it's because his name sounds funny, I don't know. But honestly, I cannot think of one scandal that Tito has been a part of. He married young to a Dominican woman and IIRC she wasn't treated particularly well by the Jacksons. His 3 sons had a group and were signed to Michael's label but their mom died and that fell apart. Tito plays gigs on his own and does guitar session work. It seems that the guy is guilty only by association.

Lola said...

La Toya gets a bad rap. Everyone thinks of her as a weirdo because of all the stuff that went on in the late 80s-90s when she was married to that bastard Gordon guy who used to beat the holy shit out of her. Her statements about MJ being "guilty" in the early 90s came after Gordon nearly beat her to death and then forced her to make a statement. After she finally escaped, MJ forgave her and they were reportedly very close at the end of his life(she was the first one at the hospital when he died). Two asides:

She earns her own living and doesn't (and never has) mooched off of the estate.

When she first tried to leave Gordon, she escaped to Janet who, instead of helping her, slapped La Toya across the face while accusing her of recording their conversation and then kicked her out to be snatched up by Gordon who had figured out where La Toya went.

Janet is no saint...not by any means...she's supposedly closest to Randy.

Katherine shouldn't control the money...that's what this is all about.

urban chaos said...

Well, word is the two brothers that were married to the same woman wanted MJ's estate to bail them out of back child support payments.

I'm glad that MJ's siblings are (for the most part) a bunch of bumbling idiots. Looks as if the gravy train stopped short of lazy ass, no job, money grubbing station.

I don't think much of MJ- but I do believe he was a product of his environment and that those kids are protected as long as the lawyers and trust stay on top of things.
As for Katherine? She's no match for her money grubbing children and she shouldn't have any financial control- I think every dollar should be accounted for with the lawyers of the estate. THAT is the only way those kids won't get screwed.

angel said...

@Bangagong, you're right. Tito being one of the brothers caused me to hesitate, but he's led a decent life, which probably explains why TJ is a cut above for that family too.

Unknown said...

She left her grandchildren without saying goodbye, letting them have a contact number and never personally called them because a few people like the cook would take care of the. She's not paid almost 900k to have a cook watch the children.

Now her idea is she'll just be grandma and everyone else can take care of the kids, the day to day, things involving school, and she wants to manage all the money.

She's as bad as the rest of them and if she loves the kids, she'll go visit them and do it for free. If not pay the person who is really caring for them and didn't abandon them. After all she states multiple times is was her idea to be out of communication, not caring if the children had no idea where she was or could not contact her. She claims no one forced her, but she chose not to talk to her grandchildren, she needed a rest from even checking on them personally. She's as money grubbing as the rest of them and if there is no money, I think grandma will take a powder on the kids anyway. I'm glad the court is having an investigation, I hope it leads to charges, and I hope grandma who raised her own children to be dysfunctional losers doesn't have much of a relationship with the kids, their chances of growing up to be normal will grow exponentially.

weezy said...

TMZ pointed out her bumbling children set up that interview to look like a terrorist hostage tape, down to Janet dressed all in black and coaching her mother in reading her script. Tito backed away because his son will get control of the money and Tito can join in -- probably with a larger share and less angst that if he'd stuck with his sibs. Katherine has been battered by Joe and now her children most of her life, and now they've done it again. "Gave up" her phone? With three young children unsupervised at home? Took someone else's word for it they'd be fine? *Really*? Who *does* that?

Henriette said...

Katherine showed she cannot be trusted to be a guardian to those kids! Once you have kids, you CANNOT be out of communication with them! Maybe when they turn 30, but not while they are minors.

I hope Tito junior does a better job.
