A family disturbance at the home of Katherine Jackson in Calabasas did not involve Michael Jackson's children, although the King of Pop's daughter, Paris Jackson, continues to claim she is being kept from her grandmother, authorities said.

"The kids were not involved,” said Los Angeles County sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore.

Deputies who responded to the call Monday afternoon determined that a physical altercation had occurred between members of the Jackson family. No arrests were made.

Whitmore did not say which adult family members were involved, only that they determined the children were not part of the family fracas.

Paris Jackson, however, has publicly expressed dismay over her grandmother's absence. She reported Katherine Jackson missing over the weekend. Sheriff's officials determined that the family matriarch was out of state with other family members.

Jermaine Jackson tweeted that the Sheriff's Department had "officially dropped the case that never was, confirming Mother is with family and ending this farcical false alarm."

Paris Jackson, Michael Jackson's 14-year-old daughter, has continued to post messages on Twitter, suggesting that she is being barred from talking to her grandmother.

"8 days and counting . something is really off , this isn’t like her at all .." she tweeted on Monday. "i wanna talk directly to my grandmother!!<|3"

On Tuesday morning, she tweeted again: "9 days and counting… so help me god i will make whoever did this pay."

Meanwhile, deputies continue to investigate allegations from April that Michael Jackson's mother was being exploited by family members.

Whitmore said a business associate of the family made the accusation. Deputies interviewed Katherine Jackson, who denied the allegation.

The claim was that Katherine Jackson was being  "emotionally and financially mistreated by family members," Whitmore said. "She emphatically denied the allegations, and deputies determined she was in good health."
