The Jackson family drama continues. And things are getting weird. Yesterday, there was some kind of disturbance at the family home in Calabasas, California . . . and police were called.
--RadarOnline.com says that JERMAINE, RANDY and JANET JACKSON showed up and tried to take MICHAEL'S kids, Paris, Prince and Blanket.
--A source says, quote, "It was just total chaos . . . Randy was telling Prince Michael he had to leave with them and that he had a private jet chartered to take them all to Arizona to see Katherine.
--"Prince firmly held his ground and told Randy he wasn't going anywhere with them. The security detail prevented the three of them from taking the kids out of state. The cops had to be called.
--"Paris was absolutely hysterical and kept telling her uncles to just bring her grandmother home."
--The source claims this was going to be a PUBLICITY STUNT so Michael's siblings could get some pictures into the tabloids of the kids with their grandmother KATHERINE . . . whom they reportedly STILL haven't heard from.
--The source adds, quote, "Now that Paris and Prince are old enough, they understand why Michael didn't have much of a relationship with anyone in the family except for Katherine."
--Last night Paris Tweeted, quote, "8 days and counting . something is really off , this isn't like her at all .. i wanna talk directly to my grandmother!!"
--Now . . . X-17 Online spoke to a source who's blaming all of this on Katherine's nephew Trent. He's the guy who filed the missing persons report on Katherine Saturday night.
--This source claims that he refused to let Michael's siblings into the house . . . and seems to be manipulating the kids. He's also allegedly part of an ongoing investigation into ELDER ABUSE against Katherine.
--And he's convincing Paris to post Tweets against her aunts and uncles.
--HOWEVER . . . Trent was hired by Michael several years ago to take care of Katherine. And there are sources that say he's very loyal to her and he's doing everything he can to protect Michael's kids from their greedy aunts and uncles.
Here's What Else Is Happening in The Messed-Up Jackson Family
Before all the chaos went down at the house in California, there were a few other details in the KATHERINE JACKSON missing persons case.
--First of all, the case has been closed. Local cops visited with Katherine at the Arizona resort where she's been staying since last week. Supposedly, she's getting some doctor-ordered rest.
--X-17 Online posted a picture of Katherine PLAYING UNO with family members, and she looked to be in good health and spirits. (--You can see it here.)
--L.A. County Sheriff's deputies went all the way to Arizona to check on her personally, but were DENIED by RANDY JACKSON'S security. They left without actually seeing her, but obviously they were satisfied with what the local police had to say, or they wouldn't have closed the case.
--Sources also say Katherine DID let MICHAEL JACKSON'S kids know she was going on this trip, despite reports to the contrary.
--JERMAINE JACKSON issued a statement saying his mother is, quote, "safe and well . . . resting up on doctor's advice."
--He added, quote, "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."
--Back to the conspiracy theories . . . A source tells TMZ that the reason Katherine's kids whisked her away is because there's, quote, "a concerted effort to get Katherine on board to challenge Michael Jackson's will and get the executors removed."
--If this is a money thing, here's a possible motive: The Jacksons' "Unity Tour" isn't doing too well. The "L.A. Times"says that 11 out of 27 dates have already been canceled due to poor ticket sales.
