Police were called to break up a fight between security staff and family members who had turned up at the children’s home, reported Mirror, UK.

The feud tearing apart Michael Jackson’s family descended into violence this week as his siblings were accused of “ambushing” the late singer’s children.

In the latest drama, police were called to break up a fight between security staff and family members who had turned up at the children’s home.

According to reports, Jacko’s son Prince Michael, 15, was responsible for ordering guards to fend off his uncles, Jermaine and Randy, and aunt, Janet.

Jermaine and Janet were pictured arguing outside the property.

Prince, his sister Paris, 14, and his brother Blanket, 10, have been living in the house in Los Angeles without their legal guardian, Jacko’s mother Katherine, 82, since she “went missing” nine days ago.

A lawyer acting for Katherine said in a statement that Janet, Jermaine and Randy Jackson had confronted Michael’s children on Monday.

She said the children had at one stage been forced to leave the family home for their own safety.

The statement said: “Certain Jackson family members ambushed Katherine Jackson’s home.

They ran up to Michael’s children as they yelled and began to aggressively grab at the cell phones in their hands.

"Out of concern for the wellbeing of Prince, Paris and Blanket Jackson, the children were forced to temporarily leave their home and were taken to a safe location. An altercation ensued shortly thereafter and law enforcement arrived at the scene.”

Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies responded to reports of the fight.

Steve Whitmore, spokesman for the Sheriff’s Department, said a report was taken but no arrests were made.

He said: “Deputies determined that a physical altercation had occurred, a battery.”

The statement from Katherine’s lawyers added: “Following the incident, it was learned that one of the family members who was part of the ambush admitted a plan has been in place for the last three years to remove Katherine Jackson from her home and her beloved grandchildren.”

The fight came days after the Jackson children reported their grandmother missing. But Jermaine Jackson, 57, has since claimed his mother is safe in Arizona.

He and Randy, 56, insist she is resting on doctor’s orders due to stress.

A family source said: “This situation is getting darker by the hour.”

Meanwhile, the family are reported to be at war over the $1billion (£638million) fortune left by Michael, who died in 2009.

The latest drama comes just days after Michael’s sisters Rebbie and Janet and brothers Jermaine, Randy and Tito wrote a letter to the executors of the his estate claiming they have been taking advantage of their elderly mother and defrauding them of what is rightfully theirs.

In another move, the executors are expected to go to court to support a bid for a temporary guardian for Michael’s children.
