Michael Jackson's estate is under investigation after Jermaine Jackson's son reportedly ordered a stun gun online and decided to test it out.Sources tell Eyewitness News that social workers are investigating reports that Jaffar Jackson, the 13-year-old son of Jermaine Jackson bought at least one stun gun and possibly two off the Internet. The Jackson children, who all live in the house, played with the weapon for three days before they were caught.

Sources close to the family tell Eyewitness News that it is not known at this time whose credit card was used to buy the stun gun. It was not Katherine Jackson's or Jermaine Jackson's.

Sources also say that the kids allegedly were playing with the stun gun as they chased Michael Jackson's youngest son, 8-year-old Blanket.

Eyewitness News has also learned that the Department of Children and Family Services visited the Jackson's property Monday night and was surprised to learn that as many as 14 people live at the Jackson's Encino compound and that others routinely stay there.

Tuesday night, the matriarch and legal guardian of Michael's three children, Katherine Jackson, is refuting many of the allegations. In a written statement from her attorney, Jackson claims that Jaffar ordered only one stun gun. He opened the package alone in the bathroom and tested it on a piece of paper.

The statement said that Katherine Jackson and household security heard the stun gun and immediately confiscated it. Katherine Jackson claims blanket never saw or heard the stun gun and neither did Michael's daughter Paris.

Katherine Jackson also claims that the older sibling, Prince Michael saw the stun gun in possession of security and that there is no second stun gun.

Social workers reportedly returned to the Jackson estate sometime Tuesday evening to interview everyone involved in the Jackson household, including all the children separately as well as the employees.
