Paris Jackson

My Uncle Randy's a Big, Fat LIAR

breaking news

Michael Jackson's only daughter is going to war with one of her famous uncles ... claiming Randy Jackson is spreading dangerous lies about the family ... and she's calling him out in public.

It's all over a letter that supposedly "leaked" to the Internet this week ... in which Randy, along with Jermaine, Janet, Tito and Rebbie demand John Branca and John McClain resign from their positions as the executors of the Michael Jackson Estate, effective immediately.

In the sharply-pointed letter, the family claims Branca and McClain have "failed" in their duties ... taken advantage of the family ... and have stressed out Katherine Jackson so much, that she recently suffered a "mini-stroke."

Randy went to Twitter and verified the authenticity of the letter Tuesday night ... but the very next day, Paris called BS on her uncle.

In fact, the 14-year-old went to her own Twitter page ... and wrote, "i am going to clarify right now that what has been said about my grandmother is a rumor and nothing has happened , she is completely fine."

She added, "i'd like to know who made up the rumor… i will defend my beloved family member with all i have , even if it means from other family members.”

Minutes later, Paris sent a new message directed to Randy -- which said, "@randyjackson8 hello dear FAMILY member i don't appreciate you telling everyone things that aren't true thank you very much."

When one of her followers suggested Paris should have respect for Randy ... she replied, "Maybe he should have respect for his mother."

Paris has since deleted the tweets.

Michael's siblings don't do this out of concern about their mother, they do it for themselves! They even lie about their own mother, to get to the money. They're adults, who should've been working for their living, instead they're actually trying to take the money from their elderly mother and the children! If it's really the case that their mother is stressed out, it's more likely that it's because of them, than by Branca and McClain. They have done a lot to improve the financial situation, it can't possibly be stressful for her, rather the opposite.

Paris seems to be a bright girl. Like Michael, she will probably have to deal with many of the negative aspects of humanity: envy (that leads to hatred and bullying, with no reason other than the envy itself), greed, exploitation... I hope she doesn't let that control her life in the future, I hope she continues to be as strong and fearless as she she seems to be now.

LaToya and Janet are the ONLY ones that didn't want something from Michael because he had his own... Paris is stronger then her uncles which is why she came out and said the things she did.

Good for you darling, these people only want to take what rightfully belongs to you and your brothers. They've taken from your father for years and spinning cause the ride is over...

Sounds to me like Paris knows this family well enough to call out the lowlifes! Lets face it, the only successful Jackson's are Micheal and Janet. The other leaches just hang around including dad. Good for this little girl!

She's very much like her dad. I'm glad she's able to see that her aunts and uncles just want her dad's money. The Jackson bros & co need to back off of these kids and their grandmother. I hope Katherine has enough energy left to live until these kids are officially adults and can do whatever they want with their money and stay away from their greedy family.

Good for Paris. She can see through the greedy machinations of her father's siblings. And, frankly, I am appalled that Janet Jackson's signature was on the letter. Michael would be so disappointed with his favorite sister... Michael made it clear that his children were the beneficiaries of his will. Michael made it clear that he wanted to help his mother. Michael set up a charitable trust as well. He did not want to support his siblings. He did not give his father any money, but he probably thought that his mother would.
This family is unfortunately ignorant and ill-educated. Michael's estate is large and complicated. It takes a lot of time, energy and people to go through a complex estate, pay off debts, sign profitable business enterprises... the estate lawyers are earning their 10% which means the children are the recipients of 90% of the income generated. It's not a bad deal.

I hope that Paris, Prince and Blanket take some university business courses so that they have knowledge of what is going on in the estate; it is going to be their responsibility to watch over the lawyers one day.

Truthfully, I think it's all a publicity stunt. The Jacksons are on their Unity Tour and even bad publicity is better than no publicity. I just don't buy this story.

Telling the truth? And how 'real' was her crying at the memorial? How 'real' are her colored contact lenses? She seems happy when people believe these are her real eyes

I think it's great that Paris , even at 14 knows the brothers and sisters of Mike are blood sucking leeches. Wait till she turns 18 and Mom ma, passes and their money pit ends once and for all. So glad Paris see's them all for what they are. Paris when you turn 18 take your brothers and run like hell away from these leeches.

She actually talked only about Katherine's health, then deleted her tweets and afterwards apologized with Randy via Twitter.
When she turns 18 nothing is gonna happen, because all three will have to wait until 40 to have the whole inheritance.

Michael Jackson’s Family At War With His Estate, Executors


Michael Jackson’s family has declared war on the executors of his estate. At least some of them have, and there’s massive dissension among the family members. A letter was sent, and made public, to the executors. It’s signed by five of Michael’s siblings–Janet, Rebbie, Randy, Jermaine, and Tito. Randy Jackson, on Twitter, insists the letter is real. But it’s addressed to John Branca and John McClain, which makes Janet’s participation questionable: McClain helped her launch her career, and they have been friends for years and years. Plus, McClain has always been the Jackson family insider with the estate since Michael died in June 2009. The letter states: “Michael always despised both of you.” So that makes no sense at all.

Who didn’t sign the letter? Marlon, Jackie, and LaToya. And Katherine Jackson, Michael’s mother. The letter was sent to everyone in the Jackson estate and to AEG Live and Colony Capital. But interestingly, it wasn’t sent to Michael’s estate attorney.

The estate has issued a response to the letter, which claims that Michael’s will was faked, and that Branca and McClain have hijacked it.

If the letter is real, and truly signed by all these people, it’s delusional at best. The Jacksons are no doubt sorely needing money and this is their last shot at trying to overturn the will. But as the estate’s response points out, the will was approved three years ago, Branca and McClain were certified as the executors, and they’ve carried out their duties. They’ve made a lot of money for Michael’s kids.

Ironically, the one person who could vouch for the executors is someone who was never treated so well by them, and is now, sadly gone: Michael’s manager, Frank DiLeo. It was DiLeo who brought John Branca back into Michael’s life six weeks before he died. It was DiLeo who saw Michael in the hospital just after he died.

The letter from Michael’s siblings corresponds with some other crazy stuff that’s cropped up on the internet. There’s a website suggesting that Peter Lopez, one of Michael’s former attorneys, was murdered. In fact he sadly committed suicide. No one knows why. But it’s extremely hurtful, I’m sure, to his wife and children to have Lopez’s name dragged into this.

Maybe the bigger issue is what’s going on with 80 year old Katherine Jackson. The three kids–Prince, Paris and Blanket–obviously love her and are protective of her. She’s their legal guardian. There’s no one else to raise them. The letter suggests that she’s in trouble. Paris’s urgent Tweets that nothing is wrong are a little suspicious. Her intentions are good. But what is the reality? She wrote: “at this point i dont care what people call me or if they think i’m a bad person… if it means sticking up for my grandmother i will do it.”

There’s a question now of whether or not Katherine has had a “mini-stroke,” as the letter states. Michael’s daughter, Paris, age 14, Tweeted that she hadn’t, and that Randy Jackson was lying about all of this. Paris, the daughter of Debbie Rowe, is a chip off the block. She’s a pistol. What she actually knows is questionable, but you have to respect her enthusiasm.
