Katherine Jackson was finally able to meet with her attorney, Perry Sanders, on Thursday night, at her Calabasas mansion, two days after the attorney flew to Tucson to see the Jackson family matriarch and wasn’t allowed to see her, and she laughed at reports that said she had a stroke, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
“I had a long and productive meeting with Mrs. Jackson. I am pleased to report that she is fine and she laughed at the widely publicized report that she had suffered a stroke. I will be releasing a formal statement tomorrow morning regarding the results of the meeting. There will be no further comments made between now and then,” Sanders told RadarOnline.com in a statement.
Sanders arrived at the house shortly after 6 p.m., and the meeting lasted for almost three hours, according to our sources.
“Perry was able to finally talk to Katherine by himself for the first time in almost two weeks. Katherine didn’t wake up until after 1 p.m., because she didn’t go to bed until 4 a.m. She has been talking to her grandchildren all day, and learning what was really going on. Needless to say, Katherine was extremely distressed and concerned about the grandchildren,” the insider told us.
Reports circulated on Thursday night that Sanders was refused entry by Katherine Jackson’s nephew, Trent, who lives at the house, and TJ Jackson, her grandson, and temporary guardian of Michael’s three children.
“That categorically never happened. Perry arrived at the front gate, and was allowed entry immediately. In fact, TJ and Trent were SO happy to see Sanders as they both know he truly is an advocate for Katherine’s best interests. The person that is spreading those false rumors about Katherine is causing all of the drama in the family right now,” the insider tells us.
Sanders told us earlier this week that he would be going to court after seeing his client to petition for Jackson to have custody reinstated of Michael’s three children. Sources tell us that there will be extra layers of protection in the new custody agreement that will ensure that Katherine will never be out of contact with the kids for that long again without immediate consequences.
