Something is going on at the Jackson estate and no one really knows what it is! Janet and Jermaine Jackson (Randy was also present at the time) were spotted arguing at their mother’s home in Calabasas, California… allegedly police were called when a physical altercation occured on the property according to TMZ. It looked like the siblings may have tried to get Michael’s children, Prince, Paris and Blanket off the property Katherine Jackson is still in Arizona and it is unknown if she knows what is going on.
According to TMZ, Michael’s executors may want to gain custody of the kids because Katherine has been MIA for the past week. It may be a ploy to get rid of the executors by Janet, Jermaine and Randy.
The executors of Michael Jackson’s estate will go to court to seek an emergency guardianship of Michael’s 3 kids … alleging that Katherine has been effectively kidnapped by Michael’s siblings and as a result his kids are in danger and without supervision.
Sources very familiar with the situation tell TMZ … the executors feel responsible for protecting the kids … since the kids are the primary beneficiaries of their father’s estate.
As we previously reported, Katherine went off the radar more than a week ago leaving her grandkids behind as Janet, Jermaine, Randy, Rebbie and Tito executed a long-standing plan to convince Katherine that Michael’s will was a fraud and the executors had to go.
Sources tell us … this plan has been in the works for months, but here’s the problem … Even if the will was invalidated, MJ’s brothers and sisters would get zilch because the prior will also gives them nothing.
And, although we’re told Randy wants to make a move to replace the executors, that would never happen. First of all, the executors will not be removed. And second, even if they were removed, the court would never appoint someone with no background in finances.
We’re told the executors are drafting the guardianship papers now and they expect to file in the probate court in the next few days.

“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.”
Ribera said Prince, Paris and Blanket Jackson were taken to safe location. “An altercation ensued shortly thereafter and law enforcement arrived at the scene,” according to the statement.
Seriously what is going on? And is money the entire motive for all of this…
Jermaine Jackson released a statement earlier this week about his mother’s whereabouts, saying this is all “a conspiracy to deflect attention away from a letter we wrote asking for the resignation of executors” of Michael Jackson’s will.
Five of Michael Jackson’s siblings last week said his will was fake and the executors of his lucrative estate, John McClain and John Blanca, should step down. Jackson’s entire fortune was left to his mother and three kids.
“They [executors of the will] will not stand down because the siblings who were left out of Michael’s will want them to,” said Zia Modabber, who is the attorney of the Jackson estate.
Howard Mann, Katherine Jackson’s business partner, believed money is pulling the family apart.
“I believe that Katherine and the children who are benefactors of the estate fall on one side, and then Randy, Jermaine and Rebbie and Tito fall on the other side,” Mann said. “They’re a group of people who have a great deal of questions about the administration of the estate.”
Modabber said, “I can’t speak for them. I don’t know what’s motivating Jermaine and Randy and some of these others, but money is not a bad guess.”
Modabber and Mann faced off in court Monday in a dispute over Mann and Katherine Jackson’s selling Michael Jackson merchandise.
“It doesn’t matter that it’s Howard Mann and he may give some of the money to his family, to Katherine Jackson or anybody else,” Modabber said. “You can’t take property that belongs to the estate, make money from it, without getting permission from the estate.”
