Being that Katherine Jackson is well into her 80s, you would think the drama in her life would come to an end (or at least slow down a little). But the Jackson family matriarch is crying out for help against her allegedly violent nephew-in-law.

TMZ reports that Mrs. Jackson filed legal docs in Los Angeles this week, claiming to be the victim of elder abuse at the hands of her nephew Trent Lamar Jackson. According to the court docs, Katherine says Trent is an “abusive con-man” who manipulated her for years so he could take control of her finances, stay rent-free in her guest house and estrange her from her kids.

She also believes that Trent was taking money from her accounts and says she has to hide in her closet so she can speak freely to her kids. Katherine says Rebbie and some of her other children are willing to testify against Trent. A source revealed about Mrs. Jackson, “Now that he knows his conduct will be revealed, she fears what he may do to her upon her return.” The court docs also stated, “Because he managed to get a key to her bedroom, he opens her door at his will with no regard to her privacy. Mrs. Jackson has to hide in her closet to speak to her kids so she can speak freely.”

The judge ordered Trent to stay 100 yards clear of her, move out of her guest house and return all his keys. A hearing has been set for March 1. Katherine is currently in London visiting Janet.
