Paris Jackson Tweets: Grandma Katherine Jackson Is Home
“grandma’s here ! #thankyougod <33″ the 14-year-old daughter of the late Michael Jackson tweeted at around 5AM Thursday.
“5 hours of sleep last night,” she added. “been awake for 23 haha goodnight everybody<33 … time to #hibernate.”
Katherine, 82, returned to California mere hours after a court suspended her guardianship over Michael’s three children — Paris, Prince Michael, 15, and Blanket, 10 — in favor of her nephew, TJ.
On Wednesday, Katherine — who was reportedly resting at her daughter Rebbie’s home in Arizona since last Saturday — spoke publicly for the first time since her disappearance, telling ABC News she is “devastated” by the court’s decision.
“I am devastated that while I’ve been away, my grandchildren have been taken away from me, and I’m coming home,” she said.
“There are rumors going around about me that I have been kidnapped,” she added. “I am here today to let everybody to know that I am good and fine … My children would never do anything to me like that.”
The Jackson family has been at the center of controversy for weeks after Michael’s siblings signed a letter demanding that John Braca and John McClain, the executors of the late King of Pop’s Estate, resign immediately. In the letter, the siblings accused Braca and McClain of faking Michael’s final will before he died on June 25, 2009.
On Monday, siblings Janet, Jermaine and Randy stormed the property of Katherine’s mansion, during which Janet and Paris got into a heated — and violent — confrontation over tweets that Paris had written about Katherine’s whereabouts. (Full details here.)
In the wake of Paris’ latest round of tweets, her brother, Prince Michael, has come out in support of his younger sister.
In a long message posted to his twitter on Thursday, he wrote, “I would first like to start off this tweet by thanking the fans that have always stood by me and my family, my dad really appreciated your support and I still treasure it to this day. As I am sure everyone is well aware of the events that have been going on. I have been holding off on backing up my sister and her tweets avidly because I was waiting for the time to reveal my side.”
As long as I can remember my dad had repeatedly warned me of certain people and their ways. Although I am happy my grandma was returned, after speaking with her I realized how misguided and how badly she was lied to. I’m really angry and hurt. The following image is of a group chat I had started to several family members. This group text message I had started was replied to but they didn’t know that I could see the responses. For this whole time, they denied us contact to our grandmother. “If you continue with your lies I will continue with the truth
-Michael Jackson Jr.
Prince Michael followed the tweet by posting a screenshot of a text conversation he had with members of his family, including Janet, demanding the return of Katherine.
