Michael Jackson's Family Still Fighting, Unsure About Mother's Location

By Carter Maness

After the false disappearance of Katherine Jackson and subsequent inter-family altercation, police visit and kidnapping accusations, the storied family's public breakdown continues. Yesterday, while discussing his mother, Marlon Jackson said he still didn't know Katherine's whereabouts and suffered a meltdown while talking to The Insider.

Marlon, sitting with Tito and Jackie Jackson for the interview, confirmed that Katherine is safe, but he has no idea where she went and why contact was cut-off. "She's doing well. But we have not spoken with her. We have not talked with her and I don't know where my mother is," he said.

Marlon then began to cry before repeating the ominous accusation that someone was directly responsible for the disappearance. "All I know is there's somebody who made the decision that my mother cannot talk to me, and whoever that person is, they've got to answer to me. Because I'm going to see my mother and I'm going to bring her home," he said. "I'm going to get to the bottom of this."

The controversial and highly emotional saga began when Katherine was removed from her Calabasas, CA home, where she was the guardian of Michael Jackson's children Paris, Blanket and Prince. After Paris tweeted that Katherine has disappeared, an altercation took place where Janet, Randy and Jermaine, Michael's siblings, drove through a security gate to take phones from the children and stop their public airing of family business.

TMZ also confirmed that Trent Jackson, son of Tito, is trying to gain temporary guardianship of Paris, Blanket and Prince. During the altercation, he apparently put Randy in a headlock and punched Jermaine in the mouth.

The drama and potential phone snatching has not stopped Paris' tweets. "9 days and counting," she posted earlier today. "So help me god i will make whoever did this pay."
