Problems at the Jackson Estate, and Did Janet and Paris Jackson Get Into an Actual, Physical Fight?
This situation with the Jackson family is SPIRALING out of control. Here's the latest: It looks like TITO, JACKIE and MARLON JACKSON are breaking with the four Jackson siblings who want to have the executors of MICHAEL'S estate removed. Tito told TMZ, "I completely retract my signature from the July 17th letter sent to the Executors of my brother Michael's estate and repudiate all the claims made against them. I don't want any part of that letter whatsoever." That letter was also signed by siblings JERMAINE, JANET, REBBIE and RANDY.
Tito, Jackie and Marlon appeared on "The Insider" last night and Marlon actually broke down in TEARS. He said, "We've been told that our mother is safe. She's doing well. But we have not spoken to her. We have not talked to her and I don't know where my mother is. All I know is she is in Arizona, and whatever doctor is saying I can't talk to my mother you call ME!"
When asked who was behind this, Marlon refused to name names. But he did say, quote, "They gotta answer to me." (Here's video.)
Meanwhile, Tito's son T.J. is trying to become the temporary guardian to Michael's three kids, PARIS, PRINCE and BLANKET.
And the executors of Michael's estate, John McClain and John Branca, are supporting him. (FYI: T.J. dated KIM KARDASHIAN back when they were teenagers. Here's a photo.) (TMZ)
Just when you thought things couldn't get more insane, there's this: Sources are claiming there was a PHYSICAL FIGHT between Paris and her Aunt Janet. It was during that incident Monday night in which Janet and two of her brothers allegedly tried to take Michael's kids from their home.
There's security camera footage of what led up to the fight. It shows three SUVs pulling into the driveway of the home where Michael's kids live. They're in one of those SUVs, while Randy, Janet and Jermaine Jackson are in the other two. Everyone gets out, and at first it looks like there's some hugging and handshaking going on. But then things get heated.
The video switches to another area outside the house, where we see Prince walk by, followed by Randy, who's RECORDING him with his cell phone. Then Janet and Paris enter the frame, and Janet appears to try to snatch Paris' cell phone from her, while simultaneously recording Paris with her own phone. Then Paris walks away, and Janet tries to follow her, but Randy restrains her. Janet and Randy then stand there recording something, we're not sure what, with their phones. (Here's the video.)
The FIGHT supposedly happened after the video cuts off. According to TMZ, Janet SLAPPED Paris and said, "You're a spoiled little [witch]." Then Paris slapped her back and yelled, "This is our house, not the Jackson family house. Get the [eff] out!"
There was also supposedly a physical altercation between Katherine's nephew TRENT and Jermaine and Randy, which may have resulted in Trent having Randy in a headlock and punching Jermaine in the mouth. That's when police were called. (Trent lives at the house. Michael Jackson reportedly hired him years ago to take care of his mom.)
Sources say Randy, Jermaine and Janet came there to take the kids back to Arizona, where their mother KATHERINE is currently staying with Rebbie. The kids have reportedly been moved from the house to a "secure location." They also met with a lawyer that night.
Meanwhile, yesterday morning Paris Tweeted that she still hasn't heard from her grandmother, "9 days and counting... so help me god i will make whoever did this pay."
