Katherine Jackson Finally Returns Home, Is Devastated To Lose Custody Of MJ's Kids

Katherine Returns Home Devastated Paris Jackson Michael Prince Randy Janet

The elusive matriarch returns!!

Katherine Jackson emerged from the shadows yesterday to deliver a prepared statement to the press.

Only slightly more convincing than a hostage reading from cue cards, Katherine assured the world her children never held her against her will.

She said:

"…there are rumors going around about me that I have been kidnapped and held against my will.

I am here today to let everybody know that I am fine and I am here with my children, and my children would never do a thing to me like that, holding me against my will. It's very stupid for people to think that."

Uhh, okay.

So why didn't you call Prince and Paris??

She continued:

"One reason I haven't called is I just gave up my phone and I didn't want to have any phone calls while I was here."

Thanks for clearing that up!

Next time you might want to inform ant kids you're legally obligated to care for!

She also revealed:

"I am devastated that while I've been away, that my children, my grandchildren, have been taken away from me, and I'm coming home to see about that, also."

We understand your devastation but maybe someone in their 80s who needs unannounced ten day sabbaticals just to keep her health and sanity shouldn't stay in the kid-raising business!!

Obviously they love Katherine very much and want their grandmother in their life but something is clearly amiss.

The prepared video statement was contrived, she wouldn't answer any media questions, and at one point she even accidentally called her grandson her nephew.

It pretty much sounds like a script Randy or Janet threw in front of her!

We imagine the discussion will eventually turn back toward Michael's will and the monies that may or may not be owed to his siblings.

Below is Katherine's statement in it's entirety.

Hello, I'm Katherine Jackson, and there are rumors going around about me that I have been kidnapped and held against my will.

I am here today to let everybody know that I am fine and I am here with my children, and my children would never do a thing to me like that, holding me against my will. It's very stupid for people to think that.

But anyway, I am devastated that while I've been away, that my children, my grandchildren, have been taken away from me, and I'm coming home to see about that, also.

So I spoke to my grandson, TJ, last night, that I left there to be in charge of my children — and I never leave home without leaving them with instructions of who to stay there with them, the nanny and all of them — and someone had let go the cook, the nanny, and also the housekeepers. I don't know who did that but they don't have that power and they shouldn't have done it.

And now, the people are saying they are there with nothing to eat. I am sure they have something to eat but it's probably not healthy because the cook is not there.

But since I have also been away, my guardianship, which I just said, my children, have been taken away from me, my guardianship has been taken away from me. And, but, I spoke to my grandson TJ and also I spoke to Prince and Paris last night and told him I would be home today and they're waiting for me to come.

And I told him it wasn't necessary for him to go down and sign for guardianship. … I don't know who instructed him to do that — but that's what, but he wanted me to come home before that happened, but the ruling in court today was about the guardianship and I think it was based on a bunch of lies, but I have a good idea who's doing that and who's behind that.

But I am grateful for my children that they saw that I needed rest and they wanted to take me away for a while, just a short vacation and rest up. But one thing I have to say … that I'm here at Miraval. They have taken good care of me and have made sure that I got the rest that I needed.

One reason I haven't called is I just gave up my phone and I didn't want to have any phone calls while I was here.

My assistant, Janice Smith, has been calling back home to see how things were going and she had been keeping in contact with my nephew, I mean my grandson, and he says everything is going fine. But I was still thinking about the children and I still worry about them, but they are fine.

Before I left, as I said, I put everything in order with the appropriate people to take care of my children for me and it's really bad to hear that what's going on at home, and the children have been taken away — but I know that … I'll get there in time to get them back. And after I finish this, I will be on my way home.

I have to thank Miraval again for taking very good care of me and making sure I got good rest.

We don't get much — we saw an electric show because it was lightening and we saw a rainbow.

I had a very good time here — and if anyone wants to rest I think they should come here.

Because there's a lot of lies that have been put out there and I am going home to straighten them out and this kind of stuff doesn't make sense. So I want to say goodbye and I am on my way home.

    With a family like the Jacksons when HASN'T Katherine Jackson been devastated?



  2. 2

    Prince, Paris, and Blanket "This negro family is FUCKED-UP; thank God we REALLY AREN'T related to them…"

    None of that made any sense to me.

    So if she isn't the kids guardian anymore… who is?

    WTF is she even saying? Does she have dementia or something? This family is so effed up!



  5. 5

    Re: demode – Their cousin TJ .



  6. 6

    Katherine Jackson held a press conference to announce that she is coming out with a CD & going on Tour…SHE'S OUT OF THERE!



  7. 7

    Is she devastated to loose the kids, or is she devastated to loose the $70,000/month that came with them? Either way, someone in their 80's doesn't have the energy required to cope with 3 teenagers. Especially 3 kids who seem like they are in need of some boundaries and discipline in their lives.

    perez who the fuck are you to give her "advice" about what she should and shouldnt have done…..this whole family is pathetic and seriously, fighting over money when they are all rich just shows what classless idiots they all are

    Prince and Paris seem very intelligent, mature and wise beyond their years. I'm glad they're putting their foot down and protecting their grandmother. The whole family seem very shady.

    My assumption: the aunts and uncles are dirving the grandmother crazy. They are probably asking for money, telling her what to do and what should be done with the kids. The kids are wiser than the greedy adults they are surrounded with. She might be 80 years old but at least she is someone these kids can trust and confide in.

    Considering Katherine's adult children never matured beyond the9-13 year old spoiled-rotten brat level, she's very capable of taking care of Michael's spoiled rotten kids…

    Shock & surprized at loosing guardianship because 3 minors were left alone, without a "guardian"…uhuh alrighty then. She's lucky she wasn't charged with abandonment / neglect. Her statement is a hodgepodge of lines. It didn't sound real or coherent. You don't have to have a Phd to know something underhanded is going on, and the kids are paying the price for the power & money struggle of the so called adults. I think it sheds a different light on Micheal's parenting, that he was able to give them the kind of security, privacy and protection from the internal never ending family drama.

    Janet should be ashamed of herself for slapping & telling a kid, ’cause thats all Paris is, a kid, that she's a spoiled b*tch. Of all the siblings, Janet is the one i would have least expected to see that kind of behaviour from.

    Some of you are crazy to believe that these children are all angels. You've never heard any stories of Mrs. Jackson being mistreated by her children. Perhaps the affects of the kids being thrust in the spotlight after years of being shielded has yielded some interesting personalities. Perhaps they were driving poor Grandma crazy and her kids intervened because we really don't know. I doubt Janet with her $150 million is interested in getting MIchael's money. Have some common sense please! I find it funny that there wasn't this outrage when Alec Baldwin called his daughter a spoiled little B@tch.



  14. 14

    Where is the outrage over what Gladys Knight said? Paris would have no teeth - seriously, if that's something she would do, she needs help from Anger Mgt. Paris may have been wrong in saying/acting like she did BUT violence (and that's what it is) does not solve the problem. The children may be in need of some structure/discipline because children don't grow up on their own. It may be time for Ms. Jackson to hang it up and just enjoy being a grandma and not a caretaker.



  15. 15

    Re: truthteller – I agree. Raising teenagers is hard. Under these circumstances it must be even harder. When a parent dies, the caregivers of the children often over compensate out of sympathy, and neglect the boundries that kids need - resulting in kids that are really really hard to handle. This is one screwed up family, but I highly doubt that MJ's kids are angels.

    Yeah, actually the real issue is a disputed Will that was falsified by Michael Jackson's executors. If you listen to Randy Jackson on Al Sharpton's show "Politics Nation", the situation actually makes a lot of sense. Jackson's executors are feeding junk media false information which has produced this ridiculous kidnapping story. The executors which falsified Jackon's Will seek to deflect the actual focus which is that Randy and Janet Jackson have been looking into the validity of the Will. The WIll is in dispute because there is video evidence of Michael Jackson at an event with Al Sharpton in New York for an entire weekend…the same weekend Michael Jackson allegedly signed the WIll in Los Angeles.



  17. 17

    Soooo… I'm guessing her stay was comped if she mentioned Miraval and did a commercial for them a thousand times? It also sounds to me like the kids pretty much raise themselves in that big mansion and all Katherine does is pay their bills and "the help."



  18. 18

    sounds like something out of maxwell smart
    i find it hard to beleive that the kids didnt know how long shell be away for …and were tweeting

    i tend to beleive the kids i think michael brought them up right and warned them approprieately against their enemies

    This is sad but welcome to big rich family life. I think she needs to continue to care for these kids & her grown ass kids need to lay off of her. When is this woman gonna get a break!! I'd swear I heard a year or so ago that Jermaine's kids & Rebbie's kids don't like their 3 cousins because they are not blood relatives & are white. They view them as adopted children which is sad. Jelaousy. UGH! & shame on Janet slapping Paris. This is the same Janet that played "Penny" the abused kid on "Good Times"? The same Janet that was raised by Beating Joe Jackson?? Disgraceful! Hey Janet show some CONTROL. Pun intended.
