Well the Jacksons are back in the headlines, however, the newest story doesn’t involve one of the sisters or the brothers. Instead, it’s an aunt and a nephew.
It has been reported that Trent Lamar Jackson has released statements that are refuting claims that he has been abusing his aunt Katherine Jackson.
“Crime Stories with Nancy Grace” podcast was released on this past Monday, in which Trent made an appearance. He took the time to defend his position and respond to the allegations that has been made against him.
While on the show, he denied all allegations that he has been abusing and trying control 86-year-old Katherine.
Jackson also stated, “My aunt left here January 22, she left me paying the bills and taking care of the household.”
According to Trent, his aunt Katherine Jackson flew to London to visit with her daughter Janet Jackson and her newborn grandson and he’s haven’t had any contact with her since she departed.
A statement in the restraining order states, “Trent was supposed to be her driver, but over time has infiltrated Mrs. Jackson’s business and personal affairs, even referring to himself as her ‘House Manager. Trent has made it his business to regulate Mrs. Jackson’s interactions with her children — screening phone calls, not relaying messages, not allowing privacy during visits or phone calls.”
Trent defended his position while on the podcast by stating, “How can I keep her from her family when they come there everyday. She has the attorneys making sure her money is being applicated in the right way, and we also have an accountant who looks at all the bank statements.”
Trent is also claiming that he is still in the house and has yet to receive a restraining order.
March 1st is when the hearing for the case is scheduled.
