Katherine Jackson is apparently being kept in hiding amid her lawsuit against nephew Trent. According to TMZ, the Jackson family matriarch is back in Los Angeles but she's being hidden from family - including her grandkids Paris and Prince - out of fear that she may drop her lawsuit.
Sources tell TMZ that Trent's team believes that Katherine's kids are worried that family, including Paris and Prince, will discourage Katherine from continuing with her elder abuse lawsuit. The sources claim that Katherine hasn't seen her grandchildren in two months.
Back in 2012, the family was in turmoil when Katherine was presumed missing. Paris took to social media to share her dismay.
"Yes, my grandmother is missing," Paris Jackson, then-14, tweeted. "I haven't spoken with her in a week i want her home now."
Last week, the judge in Katherine's case ruled that she must testify in person (versus a sworn statement her lawyers filed). The 86-year-old was previously in London, with daughter Janet and her newborn son. Katherine has filed a restraining order against Trent and claims that her nephew has abused her. Previously, we shared that Katherine believes Trent has been engaging in ongoing abuse, including secretly recording her and stalking her in her home. She alleges that Trent used her name (and credit cards) for personal use and that he neglected her by not calling emergency services when she thought she was having a seizure.
