Late Saturday night, it was reported that Katherine Jackson was allegedly missing. One of Katherine’s nephews filed a missing person’s report with the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department, as her grandchildren had been unable to reach her for over a week. Early Sunday morning, a family member disputed claims that Katherine had been missing. And Sunday evening, Jermaine Jackson, Katherine’s son, released a statement on twitter clarifying the confusion surrounding the rumor that Katherine had been allegedly missing. He wrote:
Let me put to bed today’s nonsense: as I made clear some days ago, Mother is safe and well in Arizona with her daughter and our sister, Rebbie, resting up on doctor’s advice, so it is beyond me how she can be reported “missing”
This incredulous claim was made for reasons best known to the adult/s who filed it but it seems no accident that it comes after we, the sons and daughters, put in place care-taking 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 de-stress, away from phones and computers. Everyone has been well aware of this within the family, but I would like to reiterate my reassurance to the outside world that Mother is fine. In the meantime, thank you for all your thoughts and concerns.
Welp, there ya have it.
