Jermaine Jackson is ready to “put to bed” all the confusion today regarding the state and whereabouts of his mother, Mrs. Katherine Jackson.
I wasn’t sure if Jermaine was gonna hold a press conference, but it looks like Twitter is once again the preferred platform to bring us up-to-date news and information. Powerful.
Anyway, here is the formal statement from Jermaine, in his OWN words…via his Twitter account.
Let me put to bed today’s nonsense: as I made clear some days ago, Mother is safe and well in Arizona with her daughter and our sister, Rebbie, resting up on doctor’s advice, so it is beyond me how she can be reported “missing”
This incredulous claim was made for reasons best known to the adult/s who filed it but it seems no accident that it comes after we, the sons and daughters, put in place care-taking for our own mother, taking her to Arizona in line with doctor’s advice following a check-up.
Furthermore, it dismays me that such an alarmist “missing person” report has caused unnecessary anxiety among Michael’s children who will understandably react to what they misunderstand, hear or are told.
No-one is being “blocked” from speaking with Mother. She is merely an 82-year-old woman following doctor’s orders to rest-up and de-stress, away from phones and computers. Everyone has been well aware of this within the family, but I would like to reiterate my reassurance to the outside world that Mother is fine.
In the meantime, thank you for all your thoughts and concerns.
Well, there you have it. Feel better now??
After such unnecessary distractions, now going to focus on our show at the Greek Theater in LA. Unity…unbroken
