Katherine Jackson Escapes to London, Claims Elder Abuse


Reading Time: < 1 minute

Katherine Jackson, mother of the late Michael Jackson, has told a court that she is too afraid of her nephew-in-law Trent Lamar Jackson to return to her home in Los Angeles.

According to the NY Daily News, the Jackson matriarch, who is 86, said in legal documents filed Wednesday that she is ‘under a doctor’s care’ in London, England, ‘in part because of the stress this situation with Trent is causing me.’ She was granted a temporary restraining order February 9 against Trent after alleging she is the victim of elder abuse and that he has neglected her health needs.

Trent, 52, who is related to Katherine via her husband Joe’s side of the family, had been living in a guest house in the grounds of her Calabasas, California, home after serving for years as her personal driver. Katherine states in her filing that she was bullied by Trent and resorted to desperate measures to escape his constant monitoring.
