(Newser) – We know police came to Katherine Jackson's California home to investigate a reported assault. Now there's video of a confrontation between family members—and it's not pretty. Janet and 14-year-old Paris Jackson go at it outside the Calabasas home, with Janet making a grab for Paris' cell phone, reportedly shouting at her, and maybe even taking a swipe at her. At one point Janet called Paris a "spoiled bitch," according to TMZ—to which Paris reportedly responded: "This is our house. Get the eff out!" Paris tweeted after the incident: "Gotta love fam." The confrontation erupted when Janet, Jermaine, and Randy Jackson showed up at the house to take the kids against their will to Arizona, according to a statement from the executors of Michael Jackson's estate.

Now the kids' court-appointed attorney plans to move to strip Katherine of her guardianship because she's out of reach, and the children aren't safe, reports Radar. In the video, the late singer's oldest son, Prince, 15, is seen walking into the mansion's security office. A short time later police were called to break up a scuffle involving Katherine's nephew Trent, who works on the premises, and Jermaine and Randy, reports CNN. No one was arrested. The mysterious Jackson clan meltdown is apparently linked to a mounting conflict concerning the late singer's estate. Randy Jackson says estate executors are using the kids to bolster their control, and he and his siblings are now claiming the singer's will is a fake, reports NBC. (Read more Paris Jackson stories.)
