Jackson family continues to court controversy
Michael Jackson may have died but his controversy laden legacy lives on. The Jackson family has never really been out of news, more often than not hitting headlines for the wrong reasons. Latest bombshell comes from none other than Michael's mother, Katherine Jackson, who has accused one of her nephews of trying to control her estates and expressed the fear that he may misuse his proximity to her with the intention of fraud and financial benefits.
In early February, Katherine approached the police and the courts and has lodged a complaint against her nephew Trent Lamar Jackson, citing that she feels threatened by the latter. She has been successful in getting a temporary order issued that restrains Lamar Jackson from entering her house.
According to widespread media reports, Lamar, who used to work as Katherine's chauffer, had abused the latter. This has been testified by Jackson's daughter Rebbie and other family members
too. Lamar is the son Luther
Jackson, who is brother of Katherine's ex- husband Joe Jackson.
The documents that were presented in the court, read: "Trent made himself a care custodian of Mrs. Jackson to control her every move... He's threatened not to take her home for not complying with his demands, he has refused to return her home from travel; he deprives her from contact with her family so he can maintain undue influence over her, causing her depression, angst and fear.”
It was argued in the court that Lamar Jackson made these calculated moves in order to exercise total control on the affairs and finances of Katherine and also lodge himself in her house without paying any rents.
The document further states: “Constant, sometimes subtle, emotional abuse was effective i n making Mrs. Jackson confused and unsure of what was happening to her. She is clear now and scared for her safety, after terminating his employment. Now that he knows his conduct will be revealed, she fears what he may do to her upon her return.”
The court has ordered that Lamar Jackson should return whatever things of Katheine he is in possession of, including house and car keys and bank documents. The court has further said that Lamar should remain 100 yards from his aunt's house and make no attempt to visit her.
