LOS ANGELES, United States of America – A relative of Katherine Jackson said the mother of the late pop star Michael Jackson was missing after her grandchildren had been unable to get in touch with her for a week, CNN television reported early Sunday.

The network said Jackson’s nephew, Trent, filed a missing person report with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office.

But one of Michael Jackson’s brothers immediately denied the allegation, saying Katherine Jackson was fine and resting in Arizona.

“I want to reassure everyone… that Mother is fine but is resting up in AZ on the orders of a doctor, not us,” Jermaine Jackson tweeted.

The family is involved in a dispute over Katherine Jackson’s finances and legal affairs, CNN said.

Her granddaughter Paris is in entertainment news nowadays for fighting back at her Aunt Janet and uncles about her grandmother’s “true” state of health.

ABS News reported on July 20 that Paris said on Twitter, “I will defend my beloved family member with all I have …”

Another tweet (which has now been taken down) was specifically addressed to her uncle: “@randyjackson8 hello dear FAMILY member I don’t appreciate you yelling everyone things that aren’t true thank you very much.” 

Paris will be coming out in her first movie role in Lundon’s Bridge and The Three Keys, something her aunt Janet is reportedly not happy about. – Agence France-Presse
