This whole situation is just getting more and more bizarre…
Despite claims from Randy and Jermaine Jackson that their mother Katherine - who has not been in touch with Michael Jackson's children in a week - is fine, she has NOT been in contact with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department!
According to a spokesperson with the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff's Station:
"We have nothing further to report on the case of Katherine Jackson at this time. She has not been in contact."
Stranger yet, however, are the allegations that Katherine's attorney, Sandra Ribera, has made regarding the 82-year-old's actions prior to her disappearance, and a strange doctor who claimed to be working with her personal physician who may have set this entire mystery into motion!
Ribera says in a statement:
"Last weekend Katherine Jackson was getting ready to leave for a much anticipated road trip in the RV her son Michael bought for her to watch her sons perform on their Unity Tour in New Mexico, Arizona, and Las Vegas. Prior to her departure, a doctor was brought to her home and represented that he had been sent from the office of her longtime physician. Based on this representation, Mrs. Jackson agreed to meet with the doctor who subsequently ordered her to fly rather than drive to her sons’ concerts. Mrs. Jackson followed what she believed to be her doctor’s instructions. During what was to be a brief trip, Mrs. Jackson left her son Michael’s children, of whom she is guardian, in the care of her adult grandsons. Knowing that their grandmother has never gone more than 24 hours without checking in with them when she travels, her grandchildren grew concerned after they failed to hear from her and contacted family members asking to speak to her. Michael’s children were told by family members who were allegedly with Katherine Jackson that their grandmother was not available to speak to them. Mrs. Jackson did not attend any of her sons’ concerts, which she had been looking forward to for some time. Moreover, Katherine Jackson’s longtime physician recently confirmed that his office did not send a doctor to Mrs. Jackson’s home last weekend before she left on her trip. It has further been discovered that the doctor that Katherine Jackson last saw has been publicly reprimanded by the California Medical Board for fraudulent activities and has ties to Dr. Conrad Murray."
“Concerned family members, particularly Michael’s children, have since 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 — especially those pertaining to the status of Katherine Jackson’s health. When Michael’s children last saw their grandmother on July 15, 2012, she was in great health physically as well as mentally.”
This is all just BIZARRE!
And regardless of what was going on with all of this crazy doctor nonsense, what concerns us most is that Katherine has YET to be in touch with authorities - if only just to let them know she is okay!
We sincerely hope that they hear from her soon.
Those poor children have been through enough - they shouldn't have to be worried about their grandmother now, too!
You're in our thoughts, Katherine. We sincerely hope you are okay.
