Now what's up at the Jackson family home?

A couple of hours before Jermaine Jackson tweeted that the "farcical" missing-person case involving his mother had been closed (authorities confirm as much), Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies paid a visit to Katherine Jackson's Encino residence, where Michael Jackson's children have been living with their grandmother since their father's death in 2009.

While sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore would not release the names of the individuals involved, he did confirm that deputies determined upon arrival that a physical altercation had occurred between two people and the incident is being investigated as a possible battery.

"Gotta love fam," Paris Jackson tweeted a little after 1 p.m.â€"the same time Katherine Jackson's private security team called police.

According to Celebuzz, which first reported the latest drama at the Jackson family abode, Jermaine, Randy and Janet Jackson had arrived at the residence, a television crew in tow, and tried to remove 15-year-old Prince, 14-year-old Paris and 10-year-old Blanket from the house.

Paris took to Twitter last week to deny reports that her grandmother had suffered a "mini-stroke" or was otherwise too unwell to care for her and her brothers, as was stated in a letterâ€"signed by Janet, Jermaine, Randy, Rebbie and Tito Jacksonâ€"demanding that the executors of Michael Jackson's estate resign.

The siblings charged in the letter to John Branca and John McClain that their late brother's will was "Fake, Flawed and Fraudulent." The letter further contends that Katherine Jackson, who was inexplicably reported missing on Saturday night, is "not equipped to handle the stress load" supposedly placed on her by Branca and McClain.

An estate spokesman fired back that any doubts about the will's validity were cleared up years ago and that they were saddened by the "false and defamatory accusations" leveled at them.

Meanwhile, though it turns out that Katherine Jackson is in Arizona and L.A. authorities have declared her "safe and with family," her own granddaughter apparently didn't know where she was as recently as yesterday.

"Yes , my grandmother is missing," Paris tweeted Sunday. "i haven't spoken with her in a week i want her home now ." She also tweeted out a phone number asking anyone with information to call.

Katherine's attorneys told E! News yesterday that the 82-year-old family matriarch had left Prince, Paris and Blanket in the care of one of her adult grandchildren during what was to be a brief trip, but that the kids got concerned after not hearing from her for 24 hours.

"LA Co Sheriffs have officially dropped the case that never was, confirming Mother is with family and ending this farcical false alarm," Jermaine tweeted this afternoon.

But hearsay may not be enough for Paris, who just tweeted the following: "8 days and counting . something is really off , this isn't like her at all .. i wanna talk directly to my grandmother!!"
