KATHERINE Jackson has been reported missing.

The Jackson matriarch’s nephew filed a missing person’s report with the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department after her grandchildren had been unable to reach her for over a week.

Katherine’s lawyer released a statement, saying, “Concerned family members, particularly Michael’s children, have since made ongoing pleas to those believed to have knowledge of her location for information regarding her whereabouts.

“The only reports provided have been both conflicting and confusing — especially those pertaining to the status of Katherine Jackson’s health. When Michael’s children last saw their grandmother on July 15, 2012, she was in great health physically as well as mentally.

“Prince, Paris, and Blanket are the light of Katherine Jackson’s life, as she is to those children. Out of concern for Mrs. Jackson’s well-being and in an effort to ensure her being safely reunited with her grandchildren as soon as possible, a report was filed on Saturday with the Sheriff’s Department who will be investigating this matter.”

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department issued a release that says, “Katherine Jackson is reportedly with family members. Late Saturday night, a different family member reported that he was unable to speak with her and is concerned for her well being. Deputies are continuing to make efforts to reach her and ask that she contact the Malibu / Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.”

A source tells the AP that Katherine is is with her daughter Rebbie and has been prescribed rest by a physician.

Jennifer Lopez Did Not Quit American Idol over Salary Dispute

Jennifer Lopez Did Not Quit American Idol over Salary Dispute | Jennifer Lopez

No, she wasn’t holding out for a major payday: Jennifer Lopez‘s departure from American Idol after two seasons had nothing to do with money, a source close to the star tells PEOPLE.

Contrary to reports that Lopez asked for a $2 million raise to continue judging the Fox reality show for a third season, the source says that Fox did approach Lopez with a “comparable offer to last year’s salary” for next season, but it was never countered nor negotiated by her team.

For her first season on the show, Lopez earned $15 million. And she did get a raise for her second season, the source says, because Fox understood the value she brought to the series. Her second year salary was $20 million plus bonuses, says the source. PEOPLE reached a Fox rep who had no comment.

Regarding her decision to leave, the source says it was a difficult one, and was informed by the star’s interest in focusing on her family, film career and other creative ventures, including her fashion business.

As for her reasoning, Lopez, 42, recently told Ryan Seacrest just how tough the decision was to quit the show along with Steven Tyler, who will be departing next season, too.

“I could do Idol for the rest of my life,” she said at the time, “but that would be giving up a bunch of other things … I have my movies and my music and my this and my that. It all kind of worked together for a while, but then it gets more complicated.”

Still, she said at the time, “I’ve never felt so much a part of a family of something I’ve been working on as I did with Idol. I didn’t know I’d be moved so emotionally by working on the show and working with the contestants.”

HEIDI Klum loves Katie Holmes!

The Project Runway host has weighed in on Katie’s skills as a fashion designer and why she is a suitable Project Runway judge.

“I like their line. I think she has a great line. I like a lot of her clothes,” Heidi gushed of the actress’ fashion collaboration Holmes & Yang with designer Jeanne Yang.

“She has a lot of great things. She has great style. She has her own style, but she’s the designer, so I’m sure she did a good job.”

Klum — who recently split from husband Seal — has admitted that she’s weary of getting married again.

“I don’t know if I’ll get married again,” she said. “Although I really enjoyed being married. I’m a dreamer. I loved our annual fairy tale weddings that were our big family parties. But sadly, it somehow didn’t work out.

“I think everyone should work on their dreams. I try to. I look into the future, concentrate on my family and I have to say that I’m happy. There are worse things in life than a separation.”
