Jermaine Dupri Katherine Jackson

Katherine Jackson is flying back to America to testify in an elder abuse case against her nephew Trent Jackson.

The 86-year-old mother of the late Michael Jackson has been visiting her daughter Janet Jackson and her grand baby in London.

Katherine was forced to return to the U.S. by Judge Rolf Treu, who refused to allow the ailing matriarch to give sworn testimony from London.

Judge Treu also refused to allow Katherine's witnesses to give testimony about the abuse they personally witnessed.

Judge Treu ruled that he would not accept a sworn statement from Katherine, who is under a doctor's care in London. He said she would have to appear in person in Los Angeles County Superior Court for her testimony and cross-examination in the case.

Katherine filed a restraining order against Trent, who she said is "an abusive con man" who has been emotionally abusing her and trying to take control of her money for years.

During a hearing on Wednesday, Katherine's lawyer Julianna Edwards told Judge Treu: "The petitioner is returning from London and needs time to re-acclimate after her journey (to) testify in this matter."

Judge Treu then continued the case until April 25, when Katherine is expected to take the witness stand.

However, Trent's lawyer Ron Rale added that he is hoping his client and Katherine reach a private settlement before the next court date.

"We're exploring resolution of the case," he said in court, according to the New York Daily News. "We're hoping to resolve this matter."

Bale said Trent should get the opportunity to cross-examine Katherine, insisting it would be a "lack of due process" if he was denied that opportunity.

"It would not be a vicious cross examination," Bale said. "If she, from her heart, said she felt bullied (by Trent), we would honor that."

    Why would a judge make a 86 year old travel halfway across the world to testify in a case dealing with a retraining order and her well being smh

  • Evilpeoplearetheweakest

    The Jackson have spent a majority of their lives either on stage or in court. Lol.

    Crazy ass entertainment dynasty. With white kids getting all his many millions.

    I wonder how much Madonna and Charlize Theron plan to leave behind for their blacks.

  • SpiceGirl

    just crazy.......

  • Django the God

    They'll probably donate a good portion.

  • pure_rachet

    Because the allegations are false and everybody knows it.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    those were his kids in his eyes .... Not that it matters outside ofim.... What so wrong for leaving his belongings to who he felt were his children ...? I will answer my own question cause I do know the answer ... Nothing... If I wanted to leave my fortune to a pet turtle ... That would be my choice ... Anyone else got something to say can suck it... Folks be worried bout the wrong shyt ...

    I hope for justice. Mother Katherine is 86 yo & should be spending her days worshiping the LORD & being loved on by her family.

  • Scromes1212

    But her being a 86 year old lady is a fact.

  • Thismessismessy

    Well Jehovah in her instance but yes. This was mean spirited in nature to make her come back. Someone has to probably accompany her. Just un called for

  • Thismessismessy

    Aaron Spelling was a white man and aint leave his biological kids not shyt. So what is your point?

  • puppylove

    well he was gonna leave Tori some coin if she left Dean, but Dean must have that magic hammer.

  • Tammie Reed

    Jermaine's hair bothers my soul so much!

  • pure_rachet

    True. But her enablers aren't. This whole story reeks to me.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    This is like people who have to legally fight squatters to get them out of their homes! His lawyer wants a fat payday to end this! Obviously, he can't write a tell-all book, probably signed a non-disclosure agreement! What a vile human being, you can imagine how much he's skimmed over the years. He figure at her age, he better cash in, she didn't play ball, but I look to hear about him in the news after the shakedown! Prayers and well wishes to Mrs. Jackson!

  • Jen_no_juice

    That and his melting wax face

  • pure_rachet

    ok so I misunderstood. Yes she's old AF and shouldn't be forced to travel. But truth is, she has to come home some time and the judge is being fair by continuing the case for another month. Especially since she made the allegations in the first place and ran away. By that time Janet will be tired of her ass and send her home. Lol.

  • Thismessismessy

    Dean indeed probably does. He got 5 kids with Tori and comes to find out he was still sleeping with his ex for a minute that he totally crapped on

  • Quitedeliteful

    Absolutely!!!

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLOL!!! Pants hiked up all around his kibbles and bits.... either that or something is wrong with his prostate....

  • Quitedeliteful

    Why would a nephew be handling Mrs. Katherine's affairs when she has grown children to do that??? She has waaay too much in assets to leave a nephew in charge....

  • World’s Moistest Jheri Curl

    that's one fawked up family

  • World’s Moistest Jheri Curl

    what I do not understand is if the guy's name is Trent Jackson... how is he her "nephew"? Shouldn't his name be Trent Scruse?

  • World’s Moistest Jheri Curl

    he left $ for his wife & son.

  • World’s Moistest Jheri Curl

    if she's healthy enough to fly to London then she's healthy enough to fly her ras back. Also, from a legal standpoint the argument is that she's under duress and is being taken advantage of... the judge would want her to appear in person to testify to that. years later you wouldn't want it to come out that someone in London was threatening her and she testified in a particular manner. to kill that you make her testify in court.

  • World’s Moistest Jheri Curl

    you don't like that good hair?

  • Ms.Caramel

    Kunk...lol

  • ThisIsWhat40LooksLike

    Not his prostate???

  • Ms.Caramel

    Yep like Zsa Zsa Gabor leaving her fortune to her dog....

  • karen b

    I wasn't trying to look AT ALL, but Jermaine has a eggplant print that looks kinda large for a man his age........lmao.....I know I'm not the only one who saw it..........lol

  • Ms.Caramel

    Them his long old balls

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    The nephew should go. If he isn't wanted there he should go. I don't know why he won't leave her alone. If he is owed money then he needs to be paid and move on.

  • charma

    Michael paid him to be a driver to her, assistant, caretaker, gopher, etc, etc. He stayed on after Michael

  • LibraGirlonly

    The estate (the white men over his estate)wanted him not the family,

  • charma

    He's Joseph's nephew; he's her nephew by marriage.

  • karen b

    More than likely........

  • charma

    The family is the one abusing her because when she passes, their access to Michael's money ends entirely. They're the ones having her file these stupid lawsuits because she is the only one he named as a beneficiary.

  • Ms.Caramel

    And he was the only one available to watch her affairs? Something is amiss.

  • missmiami305

    Is this the latest post

  • charma

    They don't seem smart. don't understand the law. Legally, he was their father; they're entitled to his assets.

  • charma

    He was hired by Michael to do exactly that.

  • charma

    Incorrect. He was hired by Michael and they never had a problem with him until he went against them when they kidnapped her to try to turn her against the estate. Jermaine liked him when he was helping Jermain curse out his ex-wife and abuse her. He had no problem with Trent then.

  • Ms.Caramel

    I see... I guess Michael trusted him.

  • Ms.Caramel

    No. There is a post about face book

  • RespectSelf

    Is there a problem with the site? Yesterday it appeared that the site had not been updated since Tuesday. I came here this morning and the same thing... Then maybe an hour later I see there were several post yesterday.
