The alleged feud within the Jackson family seems to be heating up as Katherine Jackson‘s legal team claims her own children “ambushed” the 82-year-old’s home in a plot to separate her from Michael Jackson‘s three kids.

Katherine’s attorney has released the following statement:
“Yesterday afternoon certain Jackson family members ambushed Katherine Jackson’s home after their vehicle tore through security gates on the tails of the SUV containing Michael Jackson’s children.
After exiting their vehicles, Jackson family members ran up to Michael’s children as they yelled and began to aggressively grab at the cell phones in their hands. Out of concern for the well being of Prince, Paris, and Blanket Jackson, the children were forced to temporarily leave their home and taken to a safe location. An altercation ensued shortly thereafter and law enforcement arrived at the scene.
Following the incident, it was learned that one of the family members who was part of the ambush admitted that a plan has been in place for the last three years to remove Katherine Jackson from her home and her beloved grandchildren.”
Prince, Paris and Blanket Jackson have not heard from their grandmother since she left their home nine days ago to attend a series of her sons’ concerts on the Jacksons’ Unity Tour. She never made the shows. Despite efforts to interview Katherine Jackson at her current location in Arizona yesterday, Los Angeles County Sheriffs confirmed that they were denied access to Mrs. Jackson by security for one of her children.”
In response to the claims, Michael Jackson’s estate also released a statement:
We are acutely concerned about the welfare of Mrs. Jackson, and most particularly with Michael’s minor children.
We are concerned that we do what we can to protect them from undue influences, bullying, greed, and other unfortunate ircumstances. While we do not have standing to directly intervene, we have monitored the situation and will continue to do so. We believe measures are being put in place that will help protect them from what they are having to deal with.
This past weekend, Katherine was reported missing by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department; Jermaine Jackson confirmed that his mother was resting in seclusion, per doctor’s orders.
