Jermaine Jackson says, 'Mother is safe and well in Arizona with her daughter and our sister, Rebbie, resting up on doctor's advice.'
Michael Jackson's mother is not missing, law enforcement sources tells TMZ. Soon after news that she's missing made its round on the web, Katherine Jackson reportedly speaks to police to inform that "she is fine and with a family member."
Though so, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department is still probing the case. The police is questioning the Jackson family members to determine why Katherine was reported missing in the first place by her nephew.
Not only did her nephew reported her missing but her granddaughter Paris Jackson also asked for fans' help to find her. "Yes , my grandmother is missing . i haven't spoken with her in a week i want her home now," she tweeted.
Jermaine Jackson quickly offered clarification, "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."
The confusion about Katherine's whereabouts surfaced amid the dispute over MJ's will. Jermaine, Janet Jackson, Tito Jackson, Randy Jackson and Rebbie Jackson have all signed a letter, questioning the authenticity of the late King of Pop's signature.
The siblings also claimed their 82-year-old mother suffered a mini-stroke due to the stress of the situation. The health rumor was immediately denied by Paris who wrote, "I am going to clarify right now that what has been said about my grandmother is a rumor and nothing has happened, she is completely fine."
