Hours after a judge's ruling that granted Tito Jackson's son, TJ, temporary guardianship of Michael Jackson's children, Katherine Jackson told her side of the story to ABC News. (Janet & Jermaine were standing behind her, along with a couple of their siblings.)
The 82-year-old Jackson matriarch said: "I am devastated that while I've been away, my grandchildren have been taken away from me, and I'm coming home."
Katherine alleges that the court ruling was "based on a bunch of lies," saying that her controversial trip to the Miraval Resort & Spa in Arizona was a "short vacation and rest."
"There are rumors going around about me that I have been kidnapped. I am here today to let everybody to know that I am good and fine."
In addressing the question of why she hadn't spoken with her grandchildren while she was away, Katherine states, "One reason I didn't call is I just gave up my phone and I didn't want to have any phone calls while I was here."
Katherine and her attorney plan to "go over what happened and immediately file a motion to reinstate her as guardian to the Jackson kids."
Katherine would only give a statement to "Nightline". No questions were allowed.
