Randy Jackson has hit out at his nephew for taking guardianship of Michael Jackson's children from his mother.

He took to his twitter page today to reveal that 82-year-old Katherine - who it has been claimed is being held against her will in Arizona - told her grandson TJ she was coming home today (25.07.12) and pleaded with him not to take the matter to court.

In a series of tweets, Randy wrote: ''I only tweet when its serious

''Let me be very clear about the FACTS, the absolute TRUTH...

''I was on the phone at 9pm in Los Angeles, with my sister Rebbie, when my mother FIRED Trent and Security#

''My mom told TJ that she was coming home tomorrow (which is today).

''He asked for temporary guardianship & she said -''NO its not necessary, I'll be home tomorrow.'' He asked again, and she said ''NO TJ

''I heard the conversation.

''His performance in court today breaks my heart. He knows his Aunts and Uncles would never hold their mother against her will. That's ABSURD.

''He insisted upon knowing what time she was arriving today & now I know why.

''Furthermore, if she is being held against her will - as he inferred in court - what does taking over guardianship have to do with with my mother's well-being when the children were already in his care?

''Trust me - the Executors are behind this. The ''powers that be'' use tabloid media to spin their lies and divide our family.

''Enough already!! We've already lost one family member (sic).''

In court today, Judge Beckloff said he wasn't suspending Katherine because of anything she did but because he is worried ''intentional act from third parties'', thought to be her children, are stopping her from carrying out her duty of care to the kids.

The new custody arrangement is temporary but the judge has advised TJ to apply to make it permanent.
