Janet Jackson and Siblings Call Kidnapping, Abuse Allegations 'Preposterous'
Janet Jackson's attorney has released an official statement on behalf of the famous family addressing the shocking claims of kidnapping and abuse.
Speaking out for Janet, Randy and Rebbie Jackson, Blair G. Brown has lifted the lid on the recent troubles branding the shocking claims "preposterous" and "relentless".
The statement comes almost two weeks after Katherine Jackson was reported missing by her grandchildren, Prince Michael, 15, Paris, 14 and Blanket, 10.
So what did the statement say?
"Since the loss of Michael, Janet, Randy and Rebbie's principal concern has been and continues to be for the safety and wellbeing of Michael's children, their mother Katherine, and the entire family," the statement, released on Friday says.
"Unfortunately, those people have been harmed by the actions of the executors of Michael's estate - John Branca and John McClain, the estate's lawyer Howard Weitzman, and those installed and paid to do their bidding."
The family have been embroiled in a bitter battle with Michael Jackson's estate after his siblings signed a letter obtained exclusively by Celebuzz asking for the immediate resignation of the executors, Braca and McClain.
However, the reports that have surfaced since, including the kidnapping of Katherine and Janet's alleged slapping of Paris, have now been damned by the family.
"The negative media campaign generated by the executors and their agents has been relentless. In recent weeks, the media has received preposterous reports - all now proven to be false - of a purported kidnapping of Katherine Jackson and of physical and verbal abuse of a child," the statement continued.
Janet's lawyer also makes new claims that the singer and Randy and Rebbie have now had action taken against them blocking them from seeing their mother.
"The executors and their agents also recently issued a notice barring Janet, Randy and Rebbie from visiting their 82-year-old mother and Michael's children. The effect of that notice not only is to damage fundamental family relationships, it is also to isolate Katherine Jackson from anyone questioning the validity of Michael's will."
However, Katherine has now been awarded joint custody with TJ.
The statement reiterated the families' claims that the will is fake and ended with a simple message.
"Janet, Randy and Rebbie will continue to press forward in their search for the truth in order to carry out the wishes of their brother, Michael."
