Prince Jackson, the oldest son of the late King of Pop Michael Jackson, slammed his popular aunts and uncles on Twitter for taking away their grandmother, Katherine Jackson, and keeping her out of reach for ten days.
According to reports, on Thursday, Prince Jackson took to Twitter to air out his sentiments about his grandmother, writing, “I’m really angry and hurt.”
His tweets came just hours after Katherine Jackson returned to her home in Calabasas, California — where she has been raising Paris, 14; Prince, 15; and Michael II, 10, who is also known by the name Blanket.
Previous reports have stated that on Wednesday, a judge temporarily suspended the guardianship of Katherine Jackson over Michael’s children because of her absence, which her own lawyers suggested may have actually been against her will. The 34-year-old son of Tito Jackson, TJ Jackson, was named as the children’s temporary guardian.
“Although I am happy my grandma was returned, after speaking with her I realized how misguided and how badly she was lied to,” Prince Jackson tweeted.
On July 15, Rebbie, Randy, Jermaine and Janet Jackson teamed up to take their mother to a spa near Tucson, Arizona, saying a while later that it was under the orders of her doctor.
The three children, who have been under the wing of Katherine Jackson since their father passed away three years ago, became very upset after many days of not hearing from their grandmother. For days, Paris Jackson have posted a barrage of tweets criticizing her aunts and uncles, and now, Prince Jackson, the older and usually less outspoken one has come forward to say something about the matter at hand.
“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,” Prince Jackson tweeted.
The posts of Prince Jackson even included a photo of his mobile phone screen, which he wrote showed “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.”
The image shows Prince Jackson texting to his aunts Janet and Rebbie Jackson:
“This is enough so I am texting you for the simple fact that WE DEMAND TO SPEAK TO MY GRANDMA NOW!!!,” Prince Jackson said.
The response, apparently from Janet Jackson, said: “Don’t let them pls.”
The exchange of text messages came just three hours after singer Janet Jackson was spotted on a security camera video, apparently trying to take the mobile phone of Paris Jackson in the driveway of Katherine Jackson’s California home.
The Twitter post referred to lessons taught to him by his father, Michael Jackson.
“As long as I can remember my dad had repeatedly warned me of certain people and their ways,” Prince Jackson tweeted, concluding, “If you continue with your lies I will continue with the truth.” It was signed “Michael Jackson Jr.”
However, the tweets appeared to have been deleted several hours later, replaced with a message repudiating them. And by mid-afternoon, when the children were done with their summer school, Paris posted tweets explaining:
“the thing my brother tweeted last night was the last true thing he tweeted.. he was hacked saying what we tweeted was false..”
“if you continue with your lives , i will continue with the truth’ prince wanted me to tell you guys that okay . please know its us tweeting”
Before beginning her long drive back to her California home on Wednesday, Katherine Jackson appeared on camera and read a statement to ABC News. As her children Janet, Jermaine and Rebbie stood behind her, she read from a yellow notepad:
“I am devastated that while I’ve been away … my grandchildren have been taken away from me, and I’m coming home to see about that,” Katherine said. The network was not allowed to ask her questions of any kind.
Katherine Jackson also disputed the findings of the judge:
“I am here today to let everybody know that I am fine and I am here with my children, and my children would never do a thing to me like that, holding me against my will. It’s very stupid for people to think that,” she said.
During a hearing on Wednesday, Katherine Jackson’s attorney, Sandra Ribera, told Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff that there was reason to believe Katherine had been held against her will.
Judge Beckloff suspended Michael Jackson’s mother as the children’s custodian because she may be “prevented from acting as a guardian because of the acts of third parties.”
Perry Sanders, also a lawyer of Katherine Jackson, said that he would meet with his client Thursday before filing a petition to restore her rights as the Jackson children’s custodian. Sanders added that Katherine was apparently not aware of the controversy going on around her family for the past week.
The judge also ordered that singer Diana Ross, whom Michael Jackson named as backup guardian in his will, and Debbie Rowe, the biological mother of his two oldest children, be given notice of the order.
