Home Celebrity Exclusive: Katherine Jackson Speaks To Grandchildren at Last!

Exclusive: Katherine Jackson finally spoke to her grandchildren by phone from Phoenix this morning. A source says the conversation “lasted a while.” The kids are said to be very relieved. But despite Randy Jackson’s statement this morning, Mrs. Jackson is still in Phoenix. It does like the guardianship hearing may take place anyway, with TJ Jackson, 34, being put forward as a temporary replacement. But the phone call, and the idea that Mrs. Jackson may return soon from Phoenix to Los Angeles, is an indication that Randy Jackson’s “palace coup”–which has very hurt Janet Jackson’s image–is coming to an end.

For the kids, it was 11 days of silence from their legal guardian and beloved grandmother. Her cell phone and laptop were taken from her. Her friends who play “Words with Friends” with Mrs. Jackson on the internet were very worried, too. “She loves playing with them.” Her kids, Janet, Randy, Jermaine, and Rebbie, isolated her from all regular activity.

Paris Jackson just Tweeted: “everyones taking control of me , it seems that the worlds got a role for me .. im so confused will u show to me you’ll be there for me” from the song “Will U Be There” by her father. What a day. What a weird situation!

  1. Aside from being a full-tme job, I think that MJ’s kids need a guardian who is young, strong and in the best of health. Mrs. Jackson is at an age where her health can be impacted in a negative way by family dramas. Also, it seems that Katharine Jackson is susceptible to manipulation by her greedy sons/daughters. It appears that TJ Jackson is a good person and young enough to readily do battle with those greedy vultures. He should be a temporary guardian, or possibly even appointed a co-guardian. If something happens to Mrs. Jackson’s health, the blame will lay squarely on the shoulders of the Jackson siblings who took part in this abduction/coup. BTW, I’m surprised that not a peep has been heard from LaToya?

  2. I feel very sorry for the Grandmother and those poor children. Michael loved his children and his mother more then anyone on this earth, how can his brothers and sisters only think of their greedy selves at a time like this? What an evil thing they tried to do to their Mother and the brother they were suppose to love, to treat his children this way. Disgusting!
    I hope TJ Jackson helps his grandmother and the children, keep them safe.
