Jackson describes her nephew as “an abusive con-man” who has manipulated her in order to “assume control of her finances.”

The Jackson family matriarch says she tried to fire her nephew and order him to move out of her guest house, but he has refused. Katherine is currently in London visiting her daughter, Janet Jackson, but is “afraid to go home with Trent there” and “fears he could physically harm her for terminating him.”

Randy Jackson on Twitter : “I was on the phone at 9pm in Los Angeles, with my sister Rebbie, when my mother FIRED Trent and Security. My mom told TJ that she was coming home tomorrow (which is today). He asked for temporary guardianship & she said -“NO its not necessary, I’ll be home tomorrow.” He asked again, and she said “NO TJ” I heard the conversation. His performance in court today breaks my heart. He knows his Aunts and Uncles would never hold their mother against her will. That’s ABSURD.He insisted upon knowing what time she was arriving today & now I know why. Trust me – the Executors are behind this. The “powers that be” use tabloid media to spin their lies and divide our family. Again.. WHY would it be necessary for TJ to take guardianship of the children away from my mother when they were already in his care?

1) When TJ asked my mother if he should ask for temporary guardianship, my Mother told TJ NO – twice.

2) The Estate denied Rebbie, Janet and Jermaine access to the house when they returned to home to Calabasas with a letter written by Howard Weitzman, attorney for the Estate, who is not a resident of the home.

3) The Estate is trying to isolate my Mother from her family JUST LIKE THEY DID TO MICHAEL, in order to propagate their lies, financial agendas and to protect a fraudulent will.

4) The same people that are trying to manipulate my mother are the same people that were involved with my brother when he died.

5) In order to obtain temporary guardianship, TJ lied to the court. Rebbie, Janet, Jermaine and I would never harm our mother and we are doing our best to protect her and the Estate knows that. I want to know why Perry Sanders would consider a negotiation based on lies.

6) It is clear that anyone who stands up against the Executors of the Estate – John Branca, John McClain and their attorney Howard Weitzman – is denied access to my mother.

7) It is my fear and belief, that they are trying to take my mother’s life.
