A lawyer for Katherine Jackson is denying Internet reports that Jermaine Jackson's 13-year-old son, Jaafar, tried to zap Michael Jackson's son Blanket, 7, with a mail-order stun gun.

Although the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services visited the Jacksons' Encino, Calif., home, attorney Adam Streisand insists the stun gun was snatched before any harm was done.

"Jafar opened the package in his bathroom and tested it on a piece of paper," Streisand said in a statement Tuesday.

When security and Katherine Jackson heard the sound, he said they immediately confiscated the weapon.

"Blanket Jackson never saw or heard the Taser," added Streisand. "Neither did Paris Jackson. Prince saw the Taser in possession of security."

Katherine Jackson has been raising the kids since their father's death last year at age 50.

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