In a taped segment for ABC’s “Nightline,” Katherine Jackson, 82, says that someone is trying to take her grandchildren away and that the recent guardianship ruling is based on a “bunch of lies.” She’s also clear that she has an idea who’s behind it, reports TMZ.

See Katherine’s statement here:

By now, most people are familiar with the Jackson family drama that is swirling around the Calabasas compound. First matriarch Katherine disappeared, then she was reported missing by family members.

Eventually she was discovered and found safe in Arizona with daughter Rebbie, but today a judge temporarily suspended her custody of Michael Jackson’s children — Prince Michael, Paris and Blanket — until she returned home, rewarding it to Trent “TJ” Jackson, Tito Jackson‘s son. Katherine says that she has no idea why TJ is seeking guardianship, but that she’s coming home and it’s unnecessary.

We don’t know what’s going on, but hopefully this family can reach an amicable conclusion that’s healthy for everyone involved.
