Katherine Jackson, 82, was reported missing by relatives on Saturday and her granddaughter Paris also posted on Twitter, “yes, my grandmother is missing. i haven’t spoken with her in a week i want her home now.”
The missing persons report was filed by Ribera Law Firm “out of concern for Mrs. Jackson’s well-being and in an effort to ensure her being safely reunited with her grandchildren as soon as possible,” lawyer Sandra L. Ribera said to press yesterday.
Jermaine Jackson put out a statement on Twitter on Sunday saying Katherine was “safe and well” and with her daughter Rebbie. Here is what he said:
“This incredulous claim was made for reasons best known to the adults who filed it. But it seems no accident that it comes after we, the sons and daughters, put in place caretaking for our own mother, taking her to Arizona in line with doctor’s advice following a check-up,Furthermore, it dismays me that such an alarmist ‘missing person’ report has caused unnecessary anxiety among Michael’s children who will understandably react to what they misunderstand, hear or are told.No-one is being ‘blocked’ from speaking with mother. She is merely an 82-year-old woman following doctor’s orders to rest up and destress, away from phones and computers.”
