Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services officials are looking into an incident in which one of Michael Jackson's nephews, 13-year-old Jaafar Jackson, chased the late Thriller singer’s 8-year-old son Blanket around the Jackson family compound with a Taser gun.

The investigators visited the Jackson mansion two days this week to investigate the online purchase of as many as three stun guns.

The family said that Jaafar ordered one of the stun guns online and tested the gun only on a piece of paper, according to Katherine Jackson's attorney Adam Streisand, who said the alleged Blanket incident didn't happen.

"Blanket Jackson never saw or heard the Taser," the attorney said in a statement. "Neither did Paris Jackson. Prince saw the Taser in the possession of security. There is no second Taser."

All three of the late singer’s kids have lived at the home -- which more than a dozen Jacksons live in -- in the custody of their 80-year-old grandmother since their father's death last summer. Another resident at the home: Omer Bhatti, the 25-year-old Norwegian rapper some believe to be the King of Pop’s illegitimate child.
