Katherine Jackson, apparently struggling with bad health, is headed back to Los Angeles from Arizona after she was reported missing last week, her son Randy told "Good Morning America" this morning, also denying reports of a physical altercation among family members.

"My mom is on her way back to Los Angeles," Jackson said. "It was under doctor's orders that she go [away from L.A.]. Her health was really bad, and he wanted her to go somewhere where she couldn't be on the phone, and be cut off from the outside world for a few days."

Katherine Jackson, the 82-year-old legal guardian of her late son Michael Jackson's three children -- Prince, Paris and Blanket -- was reported missing Saturday after her grandchildren hadn't heard from her in days. She was found "resting" with her daughter in Arizona. X17Online obtained a photo of Jackson smiling and playing Uno with family in Arizona.

Speaking by telephone, Randy Jackson this morning also raised questions about Michael Jackson's second will, and whether the executors of Michael Jackson's estate, John Blanca and John McLain, are telling the truth about when and where the pop star signed it.

Some of the Jackson siblings have called the will "fake" and want Blanca and McLain to step down.

"The question is on July 7, 2002, they swore under penalty of perjury that the will was signed by Michael Jackson in Los Angeles," he said on "Good Morning America." But there is footage that shows on July 7 that my brother was in Harlem with Al Sharpton.

"He was there the day before and the day after. I want some answers. How come John Blanca and John McLain have not answered that question?" Randy Jackson asked. "Anything other than that is the estate using my mother, my nephews and nieces as pawns to protect their own financial greed and gain."

He also denied reports of physical altercations among family members, which include an unsubstantiated TMZ story that Janet Jackson slapped her niece, Paris Jackson, in the face Monday while trying to take away her cellphone.

"We started to film on our cellphones ... this has been sensationalized out of control," Randy Jackson said this morning. "There was no slapping, no calling of names. This is all meant to take attention from the question that has not been answered [about Michael Jackson's will]."

As for the Monday incident, Sandra Ribera, Katherine Jackson's attorney, said Randy, Jermaine and Janet Jackson showed up Monday, broke through a security gate and apparently tried to take Michael Jackson's kids away. No arrests were made after police arrived, but Ribera said the scene was "chaos."

Ribera, who on the scene Monday, believes the issue was about Paris Jackson's tweeting. Paris had been updating her Twitter account in the past few days, asking for help finding her missing grandmother. Ribera said the children did not know where their grandmother was.

Paris Jackson, 14, tweeted Tuesday, "9 days and counting ... so help me god i will make whoever did this pay."
