Michael Jackson's estate confirmed Tuesday that some of his siblings have been banned from the Calabasas residence where his mother Katherine and his children stay.
Attorneys for Jackson's estate have placed the names of those who are banned from the family home on a list which has been forwarded to security; at least three of the late singer's siblings, including Randy, Jermaine and Janet are said to be on the list.
"The attorneys for the Estate of Michael Jackson as lessees of the house were requested by Charles Schultz, attorney for TJ Jackson, Jr., the newly appointed Temporary Guardian for Michael Jackson's children, to send a list to the security gate of people neither TJ or the children wanted allowed on the premises in view of the incidents that had just taken place," the estate attorneys wrote in a statement to E! News.
"The list may be amended and managed by TJ Jackson Jr. or the Estate when appropriate. It is imperative to the Estate that from this point forward a safe and appropriate environment be provided for Michael Jackson's children and his mother," the statement went on.
While Schultz did not reveal which names have been listed on the banned list, he hinted that Randy, Jermaine and Janet are among those barred from the residence.
"As for the family members who are on that list, they were either at the house on Monday, July 23, 2012, or in some way participated in the events surrounding that date," Shultz said.
The ban comes just days after an ongoing family feud erupted at the family home, resulting in violent clashes among several family members, including between the late singer's sister Janet, 46, and his daughter Paris, 14.
On July 23, Randy, Jermaine and Janet arrived unannounced at the Jackson family home and proceeded to cause what the estate attorney's described as being a "public disturbance" while attempting to force Jackson's three children, Prince, Paris, and Blanket Jackson, out of the home.
Video surveillance footage taken from the home shows Janet aggressively trying to snatch Paris' cell phone from her hands and new reports suggest that the teen was slapped and verbally abused by her aunt.
Violence also ensued between the male Jackson family members, according to reports. Trent Jackson, Janet's cousin, allegedly placed her brother Randy in a headlock and punched her other brother Jermaine in the mouth.
According to an estate attorney, Jackson left some of his siblings out of his will, which many suspect is the cause for the recent family feud. Katherine and his children are allegedly listed as benefactors of the $1 billion estate.
