Michael Jackson’s Mom Reported Sort of, Not Really Missing by Concerned Nephew

Matriarch of the Jackson family Katherine Jackson was reported missing late Saturday night by her concerned nephew, Trent Jackson, who filed the report with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office in the midst of an acerbic dispute between the various Jackson scions over control of Katherine Jackson's financial and legal affairs. Jermaine Jackson countered the report, however, by tweeting that his mother wasn't so much "missing" as she was simply no longer in California — she'd flown from her home in Calabasas on July 15 to Albuquerque in order to attend a Jackson brothers concert. According to Jermaine, she's currently "resting up in AZ on the orders of a doctor."

Paris Jackson was more concerned about her grandmother's sudden relocation, tweeting early Sunday morning, "Yes, my grandmother is missing. I haven't spoken with her in a week i want her home now." The flurry of speculation over Katherine Jackson's whereabouts comes after a letter from five of Katherine Jackson's children — Rebbie, Janet, Jermaine, Randy and Tito — charged that their mother was being "mistreated" by the executors of Michael Jackson's will, which allegedly left the siblings nothing. According to Katherine Jackson's lawyer, Sandy Ribera, Paris has been unable to reach her grandmother through aunts Rebbie and Janet, prompting worries that Katherine Jackson's salutary tour of the Southwest is being prolonged against her will.
