Jackson family feud 'reignited'

Michael Jackson

The Jackson family is reportedly still feuding over Michael Jackson's estate and the drama is even more intense following his teenage daughter Paris' recent suicide attempt.

The 15-year-old daughter of the late Michael Jackson tried to take her own life by cutting herself and overdosing on Ibuprofen just weeks ago, according to TMZ.

Matriarch Katherine Jackson is the legal guardian of Paris and her two other grandchildren Prince and Blanket. The kids' cousin TJ is co-guardian of Michael's brood. Katherine lost full guardianship of the children when she was in Arizona unable to be contacted by family in the summer of 2012.

The King of Pop's siblings Janet, Rebbie and Randy also demanded last year the executors of their brother's estate resign amid claims his 2002 will was a fake.

Apparently family tension has only escalated following Paris' alleged episode.

"Everyone in the family was invited to [TJ's brother] Taj's weddings, but Janet, Randy and Jackie chose not to attend," a source told Radar Online.

"Tensions still exist between the brothers, sisters and their mother Katherine. Many have turned on each other.

"It all comes down to money and their motivation to do what they did last year - taking Katherine away to Arizona behind the backs of Michael's kids."

Katherine blames Janet, Randy, Rebbie, Jackie and Jermaine for the family's current state of affairs.

Apparently she believes her children set her up for failure.

"The source of much of the issue, still, is that Katherine is upset that her children didn't tell her that Prince, Paris and Blanket were trying to contact her when she was in Arizona," the insider added.

"Randy was the ringleader of it all and the wounds between him, his mother and his siblings are still pretty deep, today."
