Mere days after Michael Jackson‘s mother Katherine was first reported missing, and then found in Arizona at the home of daughter Rebbie Jackson, there is now news that a fracas at the family matriarch’s Calabasas, California home resulted in a visit from authorities. The Los Angeles Times reports that a fight between family members broke out at Katherine Jackson’s home on Monday, but the publication noted that those involved were not named.

“Lost Hills deputies responded to a family disturbance at the home of Katherine Jackson in the city of Calabasas. Deputies determined that a physical altercation had occurred, a battery. It involved members of the Jackson family,” said sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore.

Whitmore added that no arrests were made, according to the Times. The publication also indicated that, since April of this year, Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies have been investigating allegations that Katherine Jackson was being “emotionally and financially mistreated by family members.” The accusation was apparently made by a business associate of the family, and the case is ongoing. However, Whitmore said, “She emphatically denied the allegations, and deputies determined she was in good health.”

A missing person report was filed by a Jackson family member over the weekend for Katherine Jackson. Authorities stated on Sunday afternoon that Katherine Jackson is safe and sound with daughter Rebbie in Arizona, following a doctor’s order to “de-stress,” says The Hollywood Reporter.

Son Jermaine Jackson issued a statement late on Sunday that noted Katherine was ordered to stay away from the phone and computers during her stay in Arizona.
