Jackson Family Feud
Michael Jackson's oldest son says there was definitely a plot to keep his grandmother Katherine away from the grandkids -- and he has proof.
Prince Michael Jackson — the oldest child of the late, legendary pop star — is fighting back against family factions that want to wrest control of his father's estate away from the executors, and effectively from him and his two siblings.
While Katherine Jackson insists she was not kidnapped by family members and simply needed a vacation, Prince says he and his sister Paris see through the ruse. (Hopefully little Blanket is immune to the nastiness.)
"I would first like to start off 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," Prince tweeted. "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."
Prince then posted a screen grab from his phone, showing the following text exchange:
Prince: "This is enough so I am texting you for the simple fact that WE DEMAND TO SPEAK TO MY GRANDMA NOW!!!"
Janet Jackson: "Don't let them pls."
Prince later deleted the screen grab. The plot thickens.
