Hostile Takeover of Jackson Family!
What's really going on?
First, Katherine Jackson is whisked away to Tucson for nine days, most likely against here will, and is not able to use the phone to communicate with her three grandchildren, Prince Jackson, Paris Jackson and Blanket Jackson.
Meanwhile, typical of a hostile takeover of a small country, while Katherine Jackson was moved to a secret location, the Jackson family estate security and household staff are replaced! Did they even change the locks?
And what about the security footage leaked out that showed the phone being ripped out of the hand of Paris Jackson by Janet Jackson?
And something about her televised reading of that statement that appears to have been written by someone else, while the Jackson Family hovered, threateningly over her?
Do they need to send a Seal Team into the Jackson estate to rescue Prince Jackson, Paris Jackson and Blanket Jackson?
Amid all this confusion, and schemes, maybe they need to appoint an impartial guardian for Michael Jackson's three children, someone not connected to the Jackson family.

Katherine Jackson is replaced by TJ Jackson as guardian of Prince Jackson, Paris Jackson and Blanket Jackson!
At an emergency custody hearing Wednesday, a California judge gave temporary guardianship to TJ Jackson, the 34-year-old son of Michael Jackson's older brother Tito. The judge suspended Katherine Jackson as guardian of the children, saying she is being prevented from acting as a guardian by acts of a third party.
Katherine, who had been out of reach for nine days while "resting" in Tucson, Ariz., was expected to return to her Calabasas, Calif., home.
Did you catch Katherine Jackson's televised statement? said she is "devastated" that her late son's children have been "taken away" from her. Jackson said the court ruling that made TJ Jackson the temporary guardian of Prince, Paris and Blanket was "based on a bunch of lies."
Paris Jackson tweeted early Thursday that her grandmother had returned.
Will the return of the 82-year-old matriarch be enough to soothe tensions between the siblings?
The world has been watching as a family dispute over Michael Jackson's estate, that has put Jackson's children and mother at the center, is being played out publicly online, on national television and in court.
So complex, it's hard to keep up. Last week, a letter signed by five siblings -- Jermaine, Janet, Tito, Rebbie and Randy -- challenging the handling of Jackson's estate by his executors circulated on the Internet. In the letter, the siblings accuse the executors of everything from conspiring in their brother's death, to pressuring their mother, to faking the will.
The estate's spokesman responded last week: "We are saddened that false and defamatory accusations grounded in stale Internet conspiracy theories are now being made by certain members of Michael’s family whom he chose to leave out of his will.
We are especially disheartened that they come at a time when remarkable progress has been made to secure the financial future of his children by turning around the estate's finances as well as during a time when so many of Michael's fans, old and new, are enjoying his artistry through exciting new projects."
The estate spokesman added that the will was validated two years ago when a challenge was rejected in court.
Monday, a scuffle broke out with Trent Jackson, Katherine's nephew and confidant, after Jermaine, Janet and Randy went to Katherine's house reportedly to take the children to see their grandmother in Arizona.
Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies were called to the house and spokesman Steve Whitmore told ABC News that deputies are continuing their investigation.
Hours after the scuffle, executors John Branca and John McClain weighed in on the dispute in a letter posted on fan sites: "We are acutely concerned about the welfare of Mrs. Jackson, and most particularly with Micheal’s minor children.
We are concerned that we do what we can to protect them from undue influences, bullying, greed, and other unfortunate circumstances.
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."
