TMZ has learned that everyone is moving out of the Jackson Family compound in Encino, California while the mansion undergoes extensive renovations. Back in March, following an alleged incident with Jermaine’s son Jaafar and Michael’s son Blanket with a stun gun, Mrs. Katherine Jackson, asked Jermaine’s ex-wife, Alejandra, who has three kids with Randy, and two with Jermaine, to move into a condo that Michael’s estate owns, down the road. Sources claim that Alejandra said she would only go if she received a hefty sum and a new mansion. So, she’s still there. However, sources say Mrs. Jackson is putting her foot down and when the renovations are done, only Randy’s daughter, Genevieve, can move back in with her and Michael’s kids. It seems like the Michael Jackson Estate would just advance Mrs. Jackson some money to buy a new house. They have been living in the Havenhurst mansion since the ’70s.

As previously reported, Mariah Carey doesn’t have a pair of flat shoes to her name. So, like a good husband, Nick Cannon went out and bought his pregnant wife 20 pairs of flats. Nick had previously expressed concern over his wife toppling over in her stilettos. He followed through with his commitment to get Mariah out of them. The singer then posted a photo of herself on Twitter surrounded by boxes of shoes and joked: “Nick just brought me home like 20 pairs of flats in his eternal quest to convert me.”
