Katherine Jackson laughs at stroke report, lawyer says

Katherine Jackson's lawyer met with her Thursday evening for the first time since her Arizona trip that led to her losing custody of Michael Jackson's children.

The 82-year-old Jackson family matriarch even found humor in some of the speculation about her health that emerged in the past week, the attorney, Perry Sanders, told CNN.

"I had a long and productive meeting today with Mrs. Jackson," Sanders said. "I am pleased to report that she is fine and she laughed at the widely publicized report that she had suffered a stroke."

A letter signed by several of her children accusing executors of her estate of abusing her referred to a "mini-stroke," which her lawyer said never happened.

    stroke and competency aren't synonymous...so if she strokes...she should be permitted to have them in peace...do you greedy dogs have no shame?

    It's so sad to see what greed will do to otherwise nice people! But mostly it's sad to take MJ's kids away from the grandmom they so obviously love! They've lost their dad & now losing the only secure, loving environment they've had since, because of......greed, plain & simple! Prince Jackson is right, they pulled a trick on an unsuspecting Katherine!I hope truth prevails, so these kids can continue to be raised by her!!

    Don't blame me. This family has a habit of blaming drugs, I mean "medicine," or the medical profession for their disfunction. Just remember her son.
