The 'Bad' singer's mother's disappearance comes amid dispute over Michael Jackson's will.

Michael Jackson's mother Katherine Jackson is safe and with family in Arizona after being reported missing, according to police.

There had been conflicting reports about the 80-year-old's whereabouts after a member of the Jackson family reported her missing on Saturday (21st July).

The late King Of Pop's daughter Paris, who has been under the guardianship of Katherine since his death, then wrote on Twitter that she had not seen her grandmother in a week.

"I haven't spoken with her in a week I want her home now," she said.

The Press Association reports that authorities have said that she is in Arizona with family after being advised to rest by doctors.

The mystery over Katherine's whereabouts came amid an ongoing dispute over Michael Jackson's will.

The 'Billie Jean' singer died three years ago aged 50. His death came on the eve of 50 planned comeback gigs in London.
