Paris Jackson

I Am a Victim of Bullying!

6/10/2012 6:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0610_paris_jackson_videoParis Jackson says she is going through the things every teenager goes through ... which unfortunately these days includes being the victim of bullying.

Michael Jackson's only daughter sat down with Oprah Winfrey for an interview on tonight's episode of "Oprah's Next Chapter." Paris is no longer being home-schooled and she says the girls at her new private school have tried to bully her ... but she says, "It doesn't work."

Paris also says she (much like her father) is very wary of people trying to use her. She told O, "If I feel someone is being fake to me, I will just push away."
 
She's definitely learned a thing or two from dear old dad.

Never said I had a law degree. What bubble gum machine is your paralegal accreditation from?


What settlement, or non-admission of guilt (but I'll pay you anyway) proves innocence and negates all evidence and testimony?

What official do***ent proves guilt? That's a stupid question!

It's your perception that makes him guilty - no facts whatsoever prove otherwise.

There is a thin line between love and hate - you guys must really love Michael Jackson to devote so much time and effort to him.

all you MJ haters have not one shred of evidence that the man did anything that was wrong. The man stupidly invited children and their lazy a#$sed parents who then tried to extort money from Michael because he was so kind and naive. The man was found NOT GUILTY. If he was white would he have been treated the same way despite the fact that the highest court of the land found him after intense investigations, after being hounded by te FBI, after having secret agents infiltrate his circle and found NOT ONE SHRED of evidence that he was guilty of anything other than being too kind and caring. You haters never take a vacation, and what is more laughable you dont have anything worthwile to contribute to society. I am of the opinion that you are obsessed with Michael despite your declared hate. You are simply pathetic, is there not anything else on Earth that you are capable of doing other than spewing hate of MJ. Can't you see that you will never eb able to turn everyone into morons like yourself

What?
Your reading skills are clearly questionable. I do however give you more credit then Moomoo and certainly the duck.


Yes my perception is that Michael Jackson was a child predator. Luckily for him he had money to make his problems get swept under the rug. If he was your brother, father, friend, clergyman, football coach, teacher or doctor he wouldn't have fared so well.

DOR - Since you hold my occupation in such low esteem (of course never stating what it is that you do, which I would be very interested to know) and you had even the tiniest of clues regarding settlements it would sure go along way to helping you understand anything in the legal system. But since you do not there is nothing that someone can explain to you that will help. However, I will try. I hope you never get sued for anything.

Once you are sued - here are your choices: go to trial, mediation or settle. Courts often require that mediation is conducted in attempts to settle CIVIL claims to keep them out of the already overworked court system. When settlement occurs, an agreement is drafted and yes there will be typically be a monetary component to the settlement. I guess what you are trying to say with your legal expertise in your original post is that if someone settles a civil lawsuit in your brain means that they're guilty. What you don't seem to grasp is that anyone can file a civil lawsuit and it has to be dealt with in one way or another. The mere fact that the Chandlers signed off deleting all charges of sexual abuse speaks volumes to most people with at least reasonable intelligence. They got their money, which is what they wanted in the first place and they left Sneddon holding the bag. He wasn't able to secure an indictment as has been told to you and other multiple times even though he convened 2 grand juries in Santa Barbara and 1 was convened in Los Angeles. Paying to get rid of something is typically done under the table and no one would have been the wiser. Since that didn't happen in this case and you have been shown what was in the settlement do***ents, it should be clear what their intent was. But you downplay that by saying that the Chandler family had issues. Of course they did. A lot of families have issues but they don't attempt extortion to solve them!

But once again and I hate to keep bringing this up you seem to think it's illegal to settle a lawsuit. I showed you that the settlement did not preclude the Chandlers from pursuing Jackson in a criminal setting - whether you want to twist that around is your choice. You further try to downplay the reason that the Chandlers sought civil legal counsel before seeking criminal action as nothing but seeking advice. Let me ask you something - if you got raped - is the first thing on your mind going to be, "I'd better call my lawyer and ask what he thinks about my situation?" Well, I would hope not. One would hope that you would go straight to the police and report it.

It's the same thing with this Travolta mess. These people claim they were violated yet they didn't go to the authorities and make a claim. They decided it's easier to make the accusation and seek monetary damages. You will notice that 2 of the accusors left their original counsel and went straight to Gloria Allred because she likes the media attention in hopes it will force parties to settle. She is one of the ones that gives the legal profession a bad name.

JM50,
Once again, your reading skills are questionable. It's not that I don't have respect for all paralegals, just you.


Here's what I wrote, but you clearly couldn't understand.

"What settlement, or non-admission of guilt (but I'll pay you anyway) proves innocence and negates all evidence and testimony?"

Do you see these things ( )?
They can often be used for supplemental information or to indicate subtext. It was used as if to say "I'm not saying my client Michael Jackson actually did anything, but here take this money for something he's not saying he did." How on earth could you think I would imply payment to you personally?
If you are truly a paralegal, I feel sorry for every client whose information you handle.


Also, what I said was that a settlement does not prove innocence or negate evidence. It may imply guilt in people's perception, but even a confession may not actually prove guilt. You may want to go back and read that again, possibly consult a dictionary or ask a fourth grader to explain it to you, it's really quite basic. I'll try to stick away from the three syllable (that's syl-la-ble try sounding it out if you are having trouble) words in the future.


If you are a paralegal, I certainly hope that you are not operating at anywhere near the highest level that position may advance.


My guess is that, if you lived in the southern region of U.S., most older people would feel the natural compulsion to say "bless her heart" every time your name is mentioned.

Gee, does it make you feel better to put me down? So if I was a Michael Jackson hater I would garner your appreciation. Wow! I'm glad you have such a superiority complex that you assert you are better than everyone else. Again, what is it that you do? You keep failing to answer that question.

Instead of putting me down, why don't you move forward and read what I wrote about settlements. I'm sure since it doesn't fit within your "perception" of things it won't make any sense to you.

I may have misinterpreted your () useage, but at least I do not lie on here like you do.

Oh and again with your mega superior intelligence, please explain how it is illegal to settle a civil lawsuit? Also, please explain why it is normal when an alleged sexual assualt occurs to go seek advice from a civil attorney before going to law enforcement? I would love to hear from a legal expert such as yourself.

Very good for her!


OLD DAD? Since when is a 50 year old man considered old?


Unfortunately a very important part of this interview was left out when Paris told Oprah that her dad's absence isn't getting easier.

My occupation? I am a self employed IT consultant. I am lucky enough that I can do most of my work remotely and from home. I get paid quite well for a relatively short amount of hours put in. Often times, I can work a day or two solid and not have to do more then respond to an occasional email or phone call for a week.


I never claimed superior intelligence, perhaps you have inferiority complex. I let you throw the first punch on insults, after that it was fair game.
Even then, my insults were dealt out in the nicest possible way. I apologize to any group inflicted with a condition unfortunate enough to be associated with you by my implications.


The bulk of what you wrote about settlements was based on your misunderstanding of what you thought you read. I never said that a settlement of a civil case (in general) was illegal, however I stated that provisions in a civil case settlement may be deemed illegal if they prohibit willing participation in a criminal matter. There are some key words and phrases in there you obviously missed.


Once again, the written word alludes you. Now, explain to me why anyone would see you as an authority on anything you've read when you seem to fall short on just a few sentences?

Given that the the allegations were already in the media, and the issue of the monetary cost of a trial as compared to the settlement shouldn't have been an issue for MJ, why wouldn't he want to vindicate himself if he was completely innocent and there was no evidence? It certainly would have looked better then paying off people to be quiet.

First of all, thank you for answering the one question about your occupation. I am glad you are overpaid for what you do and that it provides you with a wealth of time to bash a dead person.

You are a very smug individual from your narcissistic nic to your comments. You were actually making some semblance of sense in your earlier posts until you started with your absurd diatribes regarding Michael Jackson not paying his dues as other performers, which is not only absurd but another lie on your part. If he didn’t pay his dues then no other performer in history has either. And then you went into some childish tirade calling him the “King of all mucus.” I mean really - a grown man says that???

The bulk of what I wrote about settlement was to try to explain to you that settling a civil case has no bearing on a criminal case in any shape, form or fashion. You can say that the written word eludes me; however, here is your response to Luz on one of her posts:

“It seems like you want me to get further into his court cases, I'll give you just one question.
How does illegally paying off people to drop a case make someone 100% innocent?”

By this incorrect statement, you are implying that the settlement Michael Jackson entered into was illegal and when asked to explain you give some vague thing about it preventing whomever from testifying in a criminal case. The mere fact that the Chandlers were still able to testify in a criminal trial refutes your entire statement. “Paying off” someone would be more in line with money changing hands under the table and that was not done. You are basically calling not only Michael Jackson a criminal, but the lawyers handling the settlement ones as well. As far as I can tell, they are all still practicing sans Johnnie Cochran who has since passed away. Furthermore, you are calling Larry Feldman a criminal. While I might agree that Larry Feldman displays a total lack of ethics in light of how he handled the matter, what he did was not criminal.


Insults, your or anyone else’s, are never dealt out in the nicest possible way. To quote you, my occupation is a “paraplegic?” It’s such a shame that someone actually thinks he’s dealing out a dose of reality, when it is his perception of reality and not actual reality. If you were dealing out actual reality - you would have to admit (albeit reluctantly) that there is no proof that Michael Jackson ever did anything untoward to anyone. You would also have to admit that the persons making the claims against Jackson have very questionable motives and actions and that there is way more evidence to support that they were using Jackson as a mark to gain money. I understand that the facts do not support your perception, which is what leads to you twist them around. I think you should probably just change your nic back to bnb to be more believable. Your choice though!

_________________________________________
Since the Chandlers dropped their claims of sexual impropriety and the only claim of negligence remained, Sony along with Johnnie Cochran persuaded Jackson to settle so that he could continue making them money. At the time all of this happened, he was their top grossing artist to the tune of billions of dollars annually. The ordeal was taking its toll on Jackson’s health and all of the parties wanted it to be over with (mostly Feldman and Sony). Jackson’s attorneys asked for the civil trial to be put on hold awaiting a possible criminal trial. Since Sneddon couldn’t make it happen, Feldman filed a motion to fast track the civil case claiming Jordan may not be able to remember details if it wasn’t handled quickly. Because the claim in the civil case was dropped to negligence, Jackson’s insurance company was able to settle the case, which they did on his behalf. I do believe that was one of the biggest regrets of his life because people, such as yourself, act as though he put 15 million in a briefcase and handed it off to Evan Chandler in a remote location so that no one would be the wiser. That was the purpose of me discussing civil settlements earlier, which I don’t think you really understood.

First of all, thank you for answering the one question about your occupation. I am glad you are overpaid for what you do and that it provides you with a wealth of time to bash a dead person.
People value my work, knowledge and experience and I’m paid for it. I actually can charge more than I do, and often do work that I am not paid for. I bashed Michael Jackson while he was alive as well.
You are a very smug individual from your narcissistic nic to your comments. You were actually making some semblance of sense in your earlier posts until you started with your absurd diatribes regarding Michael Jackson not paying his dues as other performers, which is not only absurd but another lie on your part.

How is it smug? I changed it to that because many stuperfans could not handle the truth I my words. Does your JM50 nic mean that you are Michael Jackson, age 50? No that would be stupid wouldn’t it? As far as “paying dues”, it was a comparative statement, not an absolute one. “King of all mucus” was a play on the “King of all music” label often given to MJ by stuperfans here, which he does not deserve (I certainly wouldn’t give it to Elvis either). It’s a joke, I wouldn’t expect you to understand and I’ll continue to use it.

OK then, for your benefit, drop the word “illegally” and answer the question. I’ve posted this question before when people state that he was innocent and never seem to get a legitimate answer.

While I might agree that Larry Feldman displays a total lack of ethics in light of how he handled the matter, what he did was not criminal.
You seem to have missed a word or two from my statement again. I used the term “paying off” in place of the word settlement, I’m sorry you could not see the association but big words do give stuperfans a hard time. As far as your tirade on the use of the word “criminal” I’ll leave that to you.

Spell check changed it to that after I mangled the word. I left because in your case I think it’s hilarious. My apology in my last post was related to that and a few others. You probably missed a few though. Bless your heart.

It’s such a shame that someone actually thinks he’s dealing out a dose of reality, when it is his perception of reality and not actual reality.

Your choice though!
Reality and proof are not equal in definition. I’ll give an example. You (I hope) would probably think that Hitler is dead but, did you verify of his identity before you witnessed his death? After all, on several occasions proof such as pictures and testimony have been proven false. Sure logic, such as what his current age would be, and his sudden disappearance from a war zone without being discovered, gives a huge probability of his death, which is only your perception. This is the logic you are applying in your paragraph above. In this case proof was never properly brought forward for debate because of the settlement, which does not erase it all or prove it to be false. He also never went to trial for war crimes; I guess that makes him innocent. If an armed robber plead guilty and the getaway vehicle is never brought into evidence because of the plea, does that make it no longer exist? That's a dangerous way of thinking isn't it? You don’t like that I twist things, as you put it, but you do a heck of a lot of twisting yourself.

I also post thoughts, theories and questions that often stump the stuperfans because they cannot handle the reality of what I write. This is especially true with the details leading up to his death. I, for the record to not believe everything negative about MJ and have said so in the past.
