Jackson Family

Showdown Video --

Friendly Before Fight

Exclusive Details

TMZ has obtained the unedited full video of what turned into a confrontation at the Jackson family compound Monday in Calabasas, CA.

It starts out friendly enough, with MJ's kids Paris and Prince getting out of their SUV and shaking hands and hugging a few of Michael's siblings who arrived in the SUV behind them.

But moments later, things turned ugly.

The footage shows Janet confronting MJ's daughter Paris ... and during the standoff, Janet swipes for Paris' cell phone twice.

Paris charges past Janet ... and when Janet attempts to go after Paris, Janet is restrained by her brother Randy.

Randy and Janet proceed to hold up their cell phones and record Paris.

After the video ends, there was a physical altercation at the home between two family members. Cops arrived to the scene and took a battery report.

According to the MJ Estate, Michael's children have since been moved away from the home and into a secure location.

Those poor kids were better off with Michael..say what you will, but they were kept out of the spotlight and had some routine in life. The Jackson's are just out for MJ's money and that is so sad. The kids have suffered enough!

Those kids need a new guardian, outside of the family. SMH at Janet who would have thought she was such a money grubber too and LaToya was the sane one.

WHY are Janet & Randy filming them the whole time? I'm kinda shocked that Janet is involved in all this, she never seemed as greedy as the rest of the brothers. Oh well. GO PARIS! #TeamParis :p

To bad this family can't remember where they came from. Yes Joe Jackson was a horrible father but he also is the reason they are in California and not back in Indiana. You would think his children would want to live their lives differently and not carry on the disfunction. The insanity has to stop somewhere.Joe is crazy but thanks to his craziness this family has led lives others only dream of.Give MJ;s kids a chance to have a healthy normal life that their father wanted them to have. STOP THE MADNESS!!!

I think they are recording them for their own protection. Paris is a liar and taught well by Trent Jackson. Didn't they already tell the media that Janet and Randy had a camera crew with them? When it looks like they are recording themselves so those little brats can't tell the police later a bunch of lies that didn't happen.

Jermaine and Randy are NOT concerned about their mother's well being, they dumped THEIR 5-6 kids and babymama on her and MJ"s dime for years, til the estate made them kick them out of the house after the Taser incident.

They just want the $$$$$ and I suspect they were going to kidnap the kids or try to physically isolate them. HOW scary. Time for Katherine to LOSE GUARDIANSHIP imo!!!!

Janet was not restrained by Randy he just put his arms around her as if he saying let go....tmz you are making it out to be more.....SHAME on TMZ trying to add fuel to the fire.

Whatever the TRUE problem is I hope they resolve it soon.

I dont' believe Janet is after Michael's money here, she's with a model that is also an oil tycoon and also has her own money from her own music. k

I will say that there is a lot of filling in the blanks by tmz on this lo res video. You also figure some worker/security person from inside the Jackson home is going to be fired shortly for taking and selling video.

Wonder if Paris was being a typical teenager and paying more attention to twitter and being a little brat which is why Janet tried to take away the phone so she could listen and when she had a crazy outburst, that's why they filmed it (brother seemed to be laughing about it).

I tell you, some of the comments that I read on this site are filthy garbage, especially when it comes o anything Jackson related. Which is why rarely come here as a result. As for the video is concerned, there is nothing ugly about this video at all, overdramatized as usual. If anything I saw was Paris stepping out of line, Janet stepping up as a responsible Aunt was punishing her by attempting to take her cell, probably from all the nonsense tweeting she has been doing lately revealing personal family matter. If their father was alive today, those kids would be forbidden from even using aol. Auntie J was most likely fed up with that. Janet and didn't do anything wrong. Whoever called the police on them was just some nosey no good trying to but into Jackson drama like everybody else.

Janet is a total mess. All the Jackson family is. Get the hell away from those kids before you make them nuts. Someone outside of the Jackson family should have custody of the kids. Crazy Jackson looney toons. How are you gonna fight with a 16 yr old? Are you 16 Janet? Why didnt Janet take custody of the kids when her brother passed? Is it because she is such a train wreck she cant even take care of herself? YUP!

Is anyone else weirded out that they are videoing these kids with their phones? Are they planning to sell to the tabloids. This family is so screwed up!
