We can all breathe a sigh of relief; Katherine Jackson has returned home safely!
Michael Jackson's 82-year-old mother, whose whereabouts have been the topic of constant conversation, says she was on a "short vacation" for "rest."
The mother of ten spoke soon after an L.A. judge removed her as guardian over her son MJ's three children, instead giving Michael's nephew TJ Jackson temporary guardianship. She says:
"I am devastated that while I've been away my grandchildren have been taken away from me, and I'm coming home."
The caring grandmother, who has been staying at Arizona's Miraval Resort & Spa, says the rumors and claims are "based on a bunch of lies."
"There are rumors going around about me that I have been kidnapped," she says. "I am here today to let everybody to know that I am good and fine."
With rumors swirling that it was in the family's plan to have Katherine go missing, she explained:
"My children would never do anything to me like that. I just gave up my phone and I didn't want to have any phone calls while I was here."
We're just glad Katherine is safe and sound in the comforts of her own home! But, so is the most outspoken grandchild, Paris Jackson. She tweeted:
Now, let's hope the entire family is able to put their differences aside, to celebrate Katherine's return!
