The 86-year-old Jackson matriarch is currently living in London while she's sorting through the legal matter, according to ET. TMZ reported that Jackson fears Trent, 52, will get violent with her upon her return to the US after she revealed his harmful conduct.
Katherine Jackson also said that on Feb. 3, with the sheriff present, she tried to fire her nephew from his six-figure income job as her driver, but Trent Jackson left the scene when deputies arrived.
"Mrs. Jackson will have moments of strength, and tell her kids that Trent is abusing her, and by the time they get Adult Protections Services to the house, he has convinced her by crying or begging, not to report him, and the cycle starts all over," papers claim, according to ET. "She has had enough. Her health is fragile, and she is tired of being frightened. She cannot endure Trent's bullying, intimidating, and manipulating ways towards her anymore."
The restraining order, granted on Wednesday, requires Trent to stay 100 yards away from Jackson, move out of the guest house and return all keys to her.
