Jack­son fam­ily con­tin­ues to court con­tro­versy

Youth Street News - - Music - ysn

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.
