The Jackson family matriarch Katherine has been reported "missing" by a family member right in the midst of a messy, confusing inheritance drama.Jackson's nephew, Trent, filed a missing persons report with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office. But Jermaine Jackson said on Twitter his mother is doing just fine and "resting up" in Arizona under a doctor's orders.

But her granddaughter Paris wrote on twitter that she's worried since Katherine hasn't been home in the last week and hasn't spoken to her: "yes , my grandmother is missing . i haven't spoken with her in a week i want her home now ."

All of this comes amidst a dramatic inheritance dispute in the Jackson clan. Five of Michael Jackson's siblings, who were left out of his will, released a letter this week claiming that they believe it is "fake, flawed and fraudulent." Tito, Randy, Jermaine, Janet and Rebbie Jackson accused their late brother's lawyer of forging his signature on the will and demanded he resign immediately, according to the New York Daily News.

The siblings also claimed in the letter that their mother was being mistreated by the executors of Michael Jackson's estate and that she wasn't getting good advice from her manager and lawyer. Katherine's lawyer Sandra Ribera said she hasn't been able to get in touch with her client since about a week ago when she left to go to New Mexico with Rebbie Jackson to watch the Jacksons perform at a concert.
