Jackson family drama continues as Katherine Jackson speaks out for the first time

Katherine Jackson spoke out for the first time after losing custody of her three grandchildren yesterday, telling ABC's Nightline that she's devastated after a judge granted temporary custody to 34-year-old T.J. Jackson.

Jackson also addressed the controversy surrounding her reported disappearance, saying, "I am here today to let everybody know that I am fine and I am here with my children, and my children would never do a thing to me like that, holding me against my will. It's very stupid for people to think that."

Criminal defense attorney Joey Jackson, who is not related to the Jackson family, sits down with Zoraida on Early Start today to weigh in on Katherine Jackson's comments and the custody battle.

    I agree with you tn. All this is about is money. Because he didn't leave brothers and sisters money they want to say the will is a fraud. He was not obligated to leave anything to do. They all just need to go away

    Let me explain how this works.....REAL Black families, especially those who are caregivers/custodians of children, notify a RESPONSIBLE family member to advise that they will be away for a couple days and appoints that responsible person to take care of the children while the caregiver is away. The question that no one is asking is "Did Katherine leave the kids in the care of someone while she was away?" If she did then she did nothing wrong.
