Katherine Jackson, the mother of Janet Jackson and Michael Jackson, filed a restraining order due to elder abuse against her nephew Trent Lamar Jackson on Wednesday, claiming that she had been an ongoing victim of abuse.
Trent had made himself the sole care-giver for Katherine “in order to control her every move”. According to Katherine, Trent has threatened not to take her home if she didn’t comply with his demands, he’s kept her out of contact from friends and family, and has refused to take her back home when travelling.Katherine had been experiencing emotional symptoms of abuse including depression, anxiety, and fear due to this.
Constant emotional abuse kept Katherine Jackson confused as to what exactly was happening her, a calculated step by Trent to ensure he could control the Jackson’s finances and get free room and board at all times.
At this time Trent Jackson must return everything from her property and stop using their financial accounts. He was also ordered to stay 100 yards from Katherine’s property.
Their court date is March 1st, 2017 where a judge will hear the Jackson’s elder abuse claims.
