Possessive (borderline) abusive 10 year old?

Lord help me..'s picture

We recently had a death in the family, and one of my family members is a single mother with a 27 year old son from her first marriage, and a younger son who is 10. At a family gathering I was bothered by how the boy interrupted his mom every time she would start a conversation with stupid stuff, and at one point she was talking about buying her older son something and when the 10 year old heard he grabbed her arm and whispered something in her ear, she then responded to the boy with..."Let go of my arm, you are hurting me!". This worries me. Should it? Am i being paranoid? Have I watched too many A&E documentaries about serial killers who at some point in their lives had an unnatural sexual attraction to their own mothers? I dont know. Im just saying.
