Paris Jackson assures fans her brother's tweet was for real

The Jackson family feud continues amid reports suggesting a damning tweet Michael Jackson's eldest son Prince wrote was a hoax.

The post in question, which was sent out early on Thursday, suggested the teenager was far from happy with the way he and his siblings had been treated by his aunts and uncles during the recent drama about his grandmother Katherine's whereabouts.

It read: "As I am sure everyone is well aware of the events that have been going on. I have been holding off on backing up my sister and her tweets avidly because I was waiting for the time to reveal my side.

"As long as I can remember my dad had repeatedly warned me of certain people and their ways. Although I am happy my grandma was returned, after speaking with her I realized how misguided and how badly she was lied to. I'm really angry and hurt."

The post was subsequently deleted amid claims Prince's Twitter.com account had been hacked, but now his sister Paris has alerted her followers to the fact there was no hacking and the message was genuine.

She writes, "the thing my brother tweeted last night was the last true thing he tweeted... he was hacked saying what we tweeted was false... 'if you continue with your lies, i will continue with the truth' prince wanted me to tell you guys that okay. please know its us tweeting."

Prince has since re-posted the original message on his own page.

The Jacksons have been feuding since family matriarch Katherine Jackson was reported missing at the weekend. She has since returned to the Calabasas home she shares with her grandchildren, Prince, Paris and Blanket, after a 10-day "short vacation" at an Arizona resort.

She was stripped of guardianship of the children on Wednesday after another grandchild, Tito Jackson's son TJ called for an emergency court hearing and was granted temporary guardianship.

The 82 year old's attorney has revealed he plans to reverse the court ruling.
