Prince Jackson, Paris Jackson, Blanket Jackson

There is no family feud among the younger members of the Jackson clan.

So says matriarch Katherine Jackson's attorney, who has set out to dispel reports that one of Jermaine's kids took after Michael Jackson's youngest son, 7-year-old Blanket, with a stun gun that had to be wrested away from him by a member of the family's security team.

All a big misunderstanding, a rep for lawyer Adam Streisand said in a statement to E! News.

Not that there wasn't a taser involved...

"Two weeks ago, Jermaine Jackson's 13-year old son, Jafar, who lives with his mother Alejandra at the home of Mrs. Katherine Jackson, received a package with a taser he ordered online," the rep said.

When Katherine and a security guard heard the sound of said taser being tested—on a piece of paper, Streisand assures—upstairs, they immediately went upstairs and confiscated the weapon.

"Mrs. Jackson took control over it and then had it removed from the house," her lawyer continued. "There was no other incident. Blanket Jackson never saw or heard the taser. Neither did Paris Jackson. Prince saw the taser in the possession of security. There is no second taser."

"All of the kids are happy, healthy and wonderful and that is Mrs. Jackson's only objective and concern," added Streisand.

According to TMZ, agents from the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services showed up at the Jacksons' Encino compound Monday night to investigate the incident and confiscated Jafar's taser.
