The Strange Case Of Katherine Jackson: Why Won’t Family Let Paris Talk To Her?

Posted on Jul 23, 2012 @ 12:00PM

As Jermaine Jackson releases a statement saying that his ‘missing’ mother Katherine Jackson is actually fine and resting up in Arizona with her daughter Rebbie — it begs the question, why is the family keeping 14-year-old Paris Jackson away from the matriarch of the famous family?

The story is especially baffling because Katharine, 82, has been raising Michael’s three kids (Paris, Prince, and Blanket) following the singer’s shocking death in June 25, 2009.  If anyone should know where Katherine was — and should be able to talk to her — it should be Paris who set off a firestorm 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. She later wrote, “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.”

As RadarOnline.com previously reported,  Los Angeles Police Department officials said late Sunday that Katherine was in fact safe, after her nephew Trent reported her missing a few days ago.

According to a report from the Today show on Monday, Katherine’s excursion 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 his full statement:
