Katherine Jackson

Trent Lamar Jackson is speaking out against claims he’s been abusing his aunt Katherine Jackson.

The younger Jackson appeared on the podcast “Crime Stories with Nancy Grace,” which released Monday.

He denied allegations he has been trying to control the 86-year-old Jackson family matriarch.

Katherine Jackson was granted a temporary restraining order against her nephew, who according to court documents is accused of having "manipulated her" and “preyed on her kindness.”

“Trent has made it his business to regulate Mrs. Jackson's interactions with her children – screening phone calls, not relaying messages, not allowing privacy during visits or phone calls,” a statement included in the restraining order reads.

But Trent said during the podcast that the allegations are not true and insisted his aunt has frequent contact with other family members.

“How can I keep her from her family when they come there every day” he said. “She has the attorneys making sure her money is being applicated (sic) in the right way, and we also have an accountant who looks at all the bank statements.”

Trent Jackson said his aunt flew to London to see her youngest daughter, Janet Jackson, and her newborn son – and he has not been in contact with her since she left.

He also said he's never been served with the restraining order and is still at the house.

A hearing in the case is set for March 1.
