Prince Jackson blasts aunts, uncles over grandmother's treatment

Michael Jackson's oldest son blasted his famous aunts and uncles on Twitter on Thursday for taking his grandmother away and keeping her out of touch for 10 days.

"I'm really angry and hurt," Prince Jackson tweeted.

His tweets came just hours after Katherine Jackson returned to the Calabasas, California, home where she has been raising Prince, 15, Paris, 14, and Prince Michael II, 10, who's also known as Blanket.

A judge suspended Katherine Jackson as their guardian Wednesday because of her absence, which her own lawyers suggested might have been against her will. TJ Jackson, the 34-year-old son of Tito Jackson, was named temporary guardian.

"Although I am happy my grandma was returned, after speaking with her I realized how misguided and how badly she was lied to." Prince Jackson tweeted.

Janet, Jermaine, Randy and Rebbie Jackson teamed up to take their 82-year-old mother to a spa near Tucson, Arizona, on July 15, later saying it was under a doctor's orders.

The three children, who have been in their grandmother's custody since their father's sudden death three years ago, became upset after several days of not hearing from her. Critical tweets have flowed from sister Paris for days, but her older brother is now being heard.

    Will *somebody* give these kids some stability, already?
    And, please, will that family stop tearing Katharine apart piece-by-piece?
    She's 82, for heaven's sake; she's not a pawn in a chess game...

      And the soap opera continues... Pretty sad that a kid seems to have a better hold on life than the adults

    Please ....These folks are not important or famous anymore. They're just a family with good people, bad people, and some damned fools. I, for one, don't give a rat 's behind what they do!

    Disfunction in a family that defines the word. Shocking. The children should have been awarded to a family theorpist upon their dad's death then they could have had 24/7 care, giving them some hope of a normal life. Hopefully, Michael left them the names of the doctors he got his illegal drugs from so they will have easy access to the same "medications" they soon will be needing.

    This is clearly a custody/estate fight! Seems like the MJ siblings want to wrest control of their brothers kids, from their mother & thereby control whatever's left of his estate! They're probably in financial straits, like most of us, but it must be torture for those who used to be rich & celebrated! Maybe they think their mom is squandering what's left! C'mon Jacksons, just hire an un-biased accountant & set up a budget! No need for histrionics! They did get the all important news coverage, though!!

    @gc, perhaps they used "Prince" because that's the name he goes by to family & friends & no doubt the name his dad called him! Signature name is often different from familiar name for many people!!

    Ya all need to leave this family alone...

    This poor woman just lost her baby and
    it's none of our business if she wants to
    go to a spa or view the Grand Canyon.
    She's over 80 years old and the last thing
    she needs, in her life, is to be hounded
    by the press!

    Get a Life,
    Hope

      What have Jermaine and Randy done with their lives? Those two especially are gold diggers. Until those kids are of age, this kind of thing will continue to happen. Hopefully the older Jackson's won't squander away Michael's estate leaving those kids penniless.

    They've gotta hear it from us
    We can't take it

    EXACTLY @ Hope. Some things just need to stay private.

      @chrissy:
      I would normally tend to agree with this...you know why...but it needs to be said that when one's whole family has been devoted to being in the public eye for over forty years, every aspect of their family life is going to be scrutinized and dissected.
      Unfortunately, this is the price of fame: NOT having the privacy to grieve in peace.

    Had the Jackson family remained in the service of God, Michael would probably still be here instead of wherever freaks go when they die. He did service his fans fairly well though. For whatever that's worth in the afterdeath.

      If YOU were truly in the service of God, you wouldn't be so judgmental.

    These children seem to be very intelligent , and will most likely be very independant and business savy at a very young age.They probably will , through their attorneys , choose their next guardian if something happens to their grandmother, as well as have a lot of power over who presides over their money in the Michael Jackson family estate, sooner than later. smile..... Don't understimate M.J.'s children. So the Jackson siblings can have Katherine sign papers giving guardianship over the children to one of them , but Paris and Prince aren't going to let anyone choose their guardian for them. They are very opinionated, and independant teens, and it won't be long before Prince and then Paris are of legal age . I can see them keeping their little brother, Blanket with them too, in the future , or even becoming legal guardians for their baby brother themselves.Michael taught Prince well.....He will probably take over everything , his siblings as well as their money, and there will be no position left for M.J.'s siblings to control.....I don't think Prince and Paris want the Jackson siblings taking over their inheritance anyway... smile...th kids believe their father's will is legal, and want to follow their father's wishes, so he'll make his wishes known... Prince wants the attorneys that his father, M.J.chose to oversee the estate and the kid's inheritance...Prince's latest twitter that his father warned him about certain people and their ways said it all.... smile... i've always liked the Jackson family , but this is about money , and they see the attorneys michael chose getting alot of money for taking care of the kid's estate / inheritance, that the Jackson family could divide among themselves...They appear to be looking at it as a family business that the entire family can forever benefit from, yet none of them are qualified attorneys...I like the Jackson family , but they are underestimating Paris and Prince.... As soon as he can , he will take over, and work with the attorneys taking care of their money. Those kids know what's going on...smile.....If they keep it up , Paris and Prince may have themselves emansipated , and take guardianship over Blanket, then stay to themselves like their dad did .... smile...

    I wonder if Michael Jackson's sons were as thrilled as his fans were to see their dad turning in to such a strange man.

    Good evening everyone. I haven't posted in awhile and hope that everyone is well.

    Well looks like the Jackson's are in the spotlight again and not in a good way. Sometimes being a celebrity family can be more a curse than a blessing. So sad the the children of Michael have to see that greed and power of money more important than love.

    @eye wonder
    Don't wonder too far, you might get lost. LOL.
