As if we didn’t feel bad enough for the Jackson family (La Toya is the one who got a reality show on OWN?)(Just kidding, you know we’ll DVR that), matriarch Katherine Jackson is now alleging she may have been tricked or coerced into going to a spa in Arizona in July. The woman is a grandma, people! Come on! As you might recall while sighing heavily and shaking your head, Paris Jackson‘s memaw lost custody of her grandkids to TJ Jackson after leaving the state and becoming incommunicado for an extended period of time. Fortunately Katherine regained shared custody of the kids as of today, so we have to ask…what is even going on? What was the game plan here, people? Whoever’s the mastermind behind this whole disaster needs to go back to the drawing board, because we don’t understand any aspect of this whatsoever.
As we tried valiantly to break down for you last week, Katherine left Cali a few weeks ago to attend her sons’ Unity Tour performance in New Mexico. Instead, she ended up at a spa in a different state with daughter Rebbie, where upon Katherine says her phones and iPad were taken from her. While Katherine assumed her grandkids knew of her whereabouts, her disappearance actually caused them to flip out and alert the authorities. You know, like someone might do if his or her grandma suddenly stopped answering her phone. “At the time, I trusted the people I was with to be honest with me,” Katherine says in documents filed today as part of her bid to get back guardianship of MJ’s kids. Mistake number one, we guess.
