Tito, Jackie and Marlon May Be Breaking With Their Siblings . . . And Did Janet and Paris Jackson Get Into an Actual, Physical Fight?
This situation with the Jackson family is SPIRALING out of control. Here's the latest:
--It looks like TITO, JACKIE and MARLON JACKSON are breaking with the four Jackson siblings who want to have the executors of MICHAEL'S estate removed.
--Tito told TMZ, quote, "I completely retract my signature from the July 17th letter sent to the Executors of my brother Michael's estate and repudiate all the claims made against them.
--"I don't want any part of that letter whatsoever."
--That letter was also signed by siblings JERMAINE, JANET, REBBIE and RANDY.
--Tito, Jackie and Marlon appeared on "The Insider" last night and Marlon actually broke down in TEARS.
--He said, quote, "We've been told that our mother is safe. She's doing well. But we have not spoken to her. We have not talked to her and I don't know where my mother is.
--"All I know is she is in Arizona, and whatever doctor is saying I can't talk to my mother you call ME!"
--When asked who was behind this, Marlon refused to name names. But he did say, quote, "They gotta answer to me."
--Meanwhile, Tito's son T.J. is trying to become the temporary guardian to Michael's three kids, PARIS, PRINCE and BLANKET.
--And the executors of Michael's estate, John McClain and John Branca, are supporting him.
--With all the chaos going on in the Jackson family, there's really only one name we haven't heard yet . . . and usually it's the one that's associated with trouble: LATOYA. A source says LaToya wants nothing to do with this insanity and is, quote, "not talking to anyone in the family."
--Just when you thought things couldn't get more insane, there's this: Sources are claiming there was a PHYSICAL FIGHT between Paris and her Aunt Janet.
--It was during that incident Monday night in which Janet and two of her brothers allegedly tried to take Michael's kids from their home.
--There's security camera footage of what led up to the fight. It shows three SUVs pulling into the driveway of the home where Michael's kids live. They're in one of those SUVs . . . while Randy, Janet and Jermaine Jackson are in the other two.
--Everyone gets out, and at first it looks like there's some hugging and handshaking going on. But then things get heated.
--The video switches to another area outside the house, where we see Prince walk by, followed by Randy, who's RECORDING him with his cell phone.
--Then Janet and Paris enter the frame, and Janet appears to try to snatch Paris' cell phone from her, while simultaneously recording Paris with her own phone. Then Paris walks away, and Janet tries to follow her, but Randy restrains her.
