In the wake of the recent alleged kidnapping of Jackson family matriarch Katherine Jackson and her subsequent returning home, the late pop singer’s teenaged son has blasted Janet Jackson online for causing the ruckus.
Prince Jackson said he was ‘really angry and hurt’ by his family’s actions.
The 82-year-old had a reunion with her grandkids at their Calabasas, California, home around 2:30 am on Thursday, marking the end of a nine-day stint at an Arizona spa that she called a “vacation,” but others dubbed a kidnapping.
Michael Jackson’s eldest son Prince welcomed her with open arms — then quickly took on to the social network website to break his silence in the family’s weeklong civil war, echoing his sister’s complaints that a sinister conspiracy has kept them from their guardian and grandmother.
Despite his reunion with Katherine, the 15-year-old posted evidence that his aunt Janet — who is part of a group of five disinherited Jackson siblings saying the singer’s will is a fake — manuevered to keep Prince, Paris, 14, and Blanket, 10, from Katherine.
The evidence came in form of a screenshot showing the text exchange between Prince and several Jackson relatives on Monday.
“This is enough so I am texting you for the simple fact that WE DEMAND TO SPEAK TO MY GRANDMA NOW!!!” the New York Daily News quoted Prince as tweeting.
“Don’t let them pls,” reads the reply attributed to Janet.
The text came hours after Janet, Jermaine and Randy Jackson reportedly “stormed” the children’s rented estate in a caught-on-tape confrontation.
Prince posted a text conversation with family members on Twitter.
“As long as I can remember my dad had repeatedly warned me of certain people and their ways,” Prince said in a statement accompanying the image of the text exchange.
“Although I am happy my grandma was returned, after speaking with her I realized how misguided and how badly she was lied to. I’m really angry and hurt,” he said.
“This group text message I had started was replied to, but they didn’t know that I could see the responses. For this whole time, they denied us contact to our grandmother. If you continue with your lies I will continue with the truth,” he wrote.
The posts were deleted from Prince’s Twitter feed a few hours later, but restored by mid-afternoon with Paris tweeting that an unidentified hacker had removed them without permission.
Janet, 46, did not immediately respond to Prince’s accusations or reports that she helped whisk Katherine to Arizona’s Miraval spa, which Randy and Jermaine had defended as a medical necessity.
Authorities briefly investigated it as a missing person case.
Katherine’s lawyer Perry Sanders Jr. said that he would most probably meet her on Thursday and quickly file paperwork to get custody handed back from her 34-year-old grandson TJ Jackson, the son of Tito Jackson.
