Los Angeles police officials have confirmed a family disturbance at the Calabasas, California home shared by Michael Jackson's kids did not involve teenagers Paris and Prince and their younger brother Blanket.
Cops were called to the property on Monday (23Jul12) following reports of a physical assault on the grounds. They determined that an altercation had taken place between members of the family, but no arrests were made.
Now Los Angeles County sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore tells the Los Angeles Times, "The kids were not involved."
Surveillance video footage leaked to Tmz.com shows the Jackson kids arriving at the Calabasas property on Monday, followed by their uncle Randy and aunt Janet. The encounter appears to be cordial and friendly, but both Janet and Randy seem to be recording the driveway meeting on their cellphones.
Katherine Jackson's lawyer Sandra Ribera has confirmed to WENN there was a stand-off between members of the Jackson family at the Calabasas property.
The latest showdown comes after a weekend of Jackson clan confusion surrounding the whereabouts of matriarch of Katherine Jackson, who became the subject of a missing persons complaint in Los Angeles on Saturday (21Jul12) after her grandchildren were allegedly refused contact with her as she rested up under doctors' orders with daughter Rebbie in Arizona.
Paris Jackson responded to the missing persons report on Sunday (22Jul12) and still seemed far from happy on Monday after her uncle Jermaine had assured fans that his mother was well.
Police officials in Pima County, Arizona confirmed that Katherine was OK after speaking with her, but Paris took to Twitter early on Monday night (23Jul12) and posted, "8 days and counting. Something is really off, this isn't like her at all... I wanna talk directly to my grandmother!!" - referring to the fact she hasn't spoken to Katherine in over a week.
This comes after Jermaine went public with a tweet on Monday, in which he claimed the Sheriff's Department had "officially dropped the case that never was, confirming Mother is with family and ending this farcical false alarm".
On Tuesday morning, his angry niece took to Twitter.com and added, "9 days and counting... so help me god i will make whoever did this pay."
Whitmore tells the Times a business associate of the family filed the missing persons report over the weekend and deputies have since interviewed Katherine Jackson, who denied allegations she was being "emotionally and financially mistreated by family members".
The police spokesman adds, "She emphatically denied the allegations, and deputies determined she was in good health."
