The Jackson drama is escalating by the day as members of the family turn on each other.
Even though Katherine Jackson is now back home in California, arriving in the early hours of this morning, there is still a lot of fury coming from her grandchildren who are using Twitter to reiterate that they were kept from speaking to the 82-year-old family matriarch.
While Paris has been at the forefront of exposing the imploding world of the Jackson’s in the past week, her older bother Prince has now broken his silence, saying that he is ”really angry and hurt.”
At 5am this morning, just two hours after Paris confirmed that Katherine was back home, Prince took to twitter to write: “I would first like to start off this tweet by thanking the fans that have always stood by me and my family…”
He also linked to an extended tweet that said: “As I am sure everyone is well aware of the events that have been going on. I have been holding off on backing up my sister and her tweets avidly because I was waiting for the time to reveal my side. As long as I can remember my dad had repeatedly warned me of certain people and their ways. Although I am happy my grandma was returned, after speaking with her I realized how misguided and how badly she was lied to. I’m really angry and hurt.”
And then he unleashed a photo showing a text exchange that occurred on Monday between him and family members as proof he was blocked from talking to his grandmother.
“This is enough so I am texting you for the simple fact that WE DEMAND TO SPEAK TO MY GRANDMA NOW!!!” Prince Jackson texted to his family, according to the photo.
Janet Jackson allegedly responded, “Don’t let them pls.”
Prince Jackson wrote that the group did not know he could see the responses.
“For this whole time, they denied us contact to our grandmother. ‘If you continue with your lies I will continue with the truth.’ ” he said.
Prince’s tweets come on the back of Katherine’s almost surreal interview on ABC’s “Nightline” last night. With family members gathered around her, she read from a carefully worded statement, and the reporter was not allowed to ask any questions.
