Katherine Jackson heard about kidnap drama from broken TV
Katherine Jackson had no idea her "short vacation" had turned into a missing persons drama until a broken TV at the Arizona spa resort where she was staying began broadcasting a report about her alleged kidnapping.
According to court documents filed on Thursday, as the 82-year-old Jackson family matriarch fought to regain guardianship of her grandchildren Prince, Paris and Blanket, she revealed that none of her companions, including family members, had informed her that her grandchildren were desperately trying to reach her.
In the legal papers, Jackson claims her cellphone was taken from her, the phone in her room didn't work and her iPad was confiscated when she asked if she could communicate with her grandchildren with it.
She only discovered what was going on back home in Calabasas, California when she awoke one morning to the sound of a broken television.
In the documents she wrote, "While there was no picture, I heard a broadcast that stated I was missing."
Her nephew Trent reportedly filed the complaint with Los Angeles police on 21 July as Katherine's teenage daughter Paris began tweeting her concerns about the wellbeing and whereabouts of her grandmother, demanding her return.
Upon learning of the drama, Katherine returned to the home she shares with her grandchildren - and on Thursday she was named the children's co-guardian after she was temporarily stripped of the title during the family drama last week. She will now share responsibility with her grandson T.J.
As part of Thursday's hearing, an order banning Paris, Prince and Blanket from travelling out of state was removed, allowing the kids to join family members at an upcoming celebration for their late father in Gary, Indiana.
