The Jacksons' drama has spilled over into Twitter, with Paris and Prince tweeting their extreme displeasure with the family feud, reports the Los Angeles Times. Both kids seem well aware they are mostly pawns in a bigger battle over their late father's money, and are upset at how the conflict is unfolding. "As long as I can remember my dad had repeatedly warned me of certain people and their ways," wrote Prince in a tweet that was quickly deleted, adding, "I'm really angry and hurt." Prince also uploaded a pic from an iPhone chat that appears to show Janet Jackson telling the family not to let Prince talk to his grandmother.

In addition to retweeting her brother's comments, Paris tweeted lines from her father's song "Will You Be There": " Everyone's taking control of me. Seems that the world's got a role for me. " Grandmother Katherine, who just lost custody of Michael's children, disappeared for nine days. But several tweets by the kids and Marlo Jackson imply that their grandmother had been held against her will. "Although I am happy my grandma was returned, after speaking with her I realized how misguided and how badly she was lied to," Prince tweeted. (More Paris Jackson stories.)
