Michael Jackson's mum was 'tricked'

COURT documents filed by the late Michael Jackson's mother indicated she was tricked into flying to an Arizona Spa instead of attending a concert by her sons last month.

CNN reported Katherine Jackson's cell phone and iPad were taken from her at the spa and the TV and phone in her room were disabled.

It meant she could not call home or discover the public controversy about her disappearance, Jackson said in a sworn statement filed in court Thursday.

The 82-year-old Jackson family matriarch was out of touch with Jackson's children Prince, Paris and Blanket Jackson for 10 days.

It led to a missing-person report and the suspension of her guardianship of the children she has raised since their father's death three years ago.

"At the time, I trusted people to be honest with me," Ms Jackson said.

"While I was away, I had no reason to question whether the people whom I placed the trust would inform me that Prince, Paris and Blanket were trying to reach me."

CNN reported her guardianship of the children had now been returned.
