The 82-year-old mother of the Jackson clan was given a clean bill of health after a physical and psychological evaluation with her personal doctor – despite claims from her family that she needs bed rest.
“There is absolutely nothing wrong with Katherine – she’s fit as a fiddle,” a source revealed to RadarOnline.com.
“Only last month, she saw her personal physician who performed a complete medical evaluation on her because of her age.
“The results were outstanding – she passed all tests with flying colors and was told she was very healthy.
It read: “Let me put to bed today’s nonsense: as I made clear some days ago, Mother is safe and well in Arizona with her daughter and our sister, Rebbie, resting up on doctor’s advice, so it is beyond me how she can be reported ‘missing.’
“This incredulous claim was made for reasons best known to the adults who filed it but it seems no accident that it comes after we, the sons and daughters, put in place care-taking for our own mother, taking her to Arizona in line with doctor’s advice following a check-up.
“Furthermore, it dismays me that such an alarmist ‘missing person’ report has caused unnecessary anxiety among Michael’s children who will understandably react to what they misunderstand, hear or are told.
“No one is being ‘blocked’ from speaking with Mother. She is merely an 82-year-old woman following doctor’s orders to rest-up and de-stress, away from phones and computers. Everyone has been well aware of this within the family, but I would like to reiterate my reassurance to the outside world that Mother is fine. In the meantime, thank you for all your thoughts and concerns.”
Katharine has been raising Michael’s three kids following the singer’s June 25, 2009 death. Granddaughter Paris has tweeted: “yes, my grandmother is missing. i haven’t spoken with her in a week i want her home now.”
