Katherine Jackson 'Disappearance': Jermaine Jackson Tweets, ‘No One Is Being Blocked From Speaking With Mother’
Jermaine Jackson posted a statement to Twitter Sunday evening, to refute claims his 82-year-old mother Katherine had mysteriously disappeared.
Jermaine, 57, said his mother -- the guardian of late pop star Michael Jackson's three children, Prince Michael, 15, Paris, 14, and ten-year-old Prince Michael 2 -- is doing fine and not missing as another relative had reported to law enforcement authorities.
The singer said that the Jackson family matriarch is with his sister Rebbie and has been told to stay away from phones and electronics, but is not being blocked from speaking with anyone.
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," he added.
The member of The Jackson 5 continued:
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 fromphones 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.
Katherine was reported missing to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department on Saturday night.
