Gladys Knight

Paris Jackson Deserves


7/27/2012 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Soul legend and famed Jackson family friend Gladys Knight thinks Paris Jackson is a snot-nosed little brat for bashing Janet -- in fact, Gladys says Paris deserves to get her TEETH knocked out for mouthing off to her elders.

Gladys appeared on "The Talk" Thursday ... saying, "Paris is 14? How old is Janet? Who's the one to try to direct the other one here? I would think it's a good thing [Janet] lets Paris know who she is."

Gladys added, "If [Paris] called me that, she would have no teeth ... That's how we were brought up. You respect your elders."

As we reported, Paris and Janet faced off in an explosive argument at the Jackson compound this week. Sources tell us Janet called Paris a "spoiled little bitch" ... and Paris shot back, "This is our house. Not the Jackson family house. Get the f**k out!"

Nobody in this story should have their teeth knocked out and least of all Paris. She has been fearful for the safety of her grandmother and legal guardian. Her campaign on Twitter called attention to her plight and helped to make it come to an end, maybe a temporary one. I feel like the siblings are just getting started. God bless these children.

Shut up, idiot. Now that all this crap is out in the public, the leeches won't get to steal money from the kids.

If they just let the 14 year old talk to her LEGAL guardian, at the time, this may never have happened.

If this was a normal family I would agree-but we all know they are not-there's so much more going on-and Janet got physical with Paris when she grabbed for her phone which we all saw on the video-who knows who said what-we don't-crazy family-and these kids are affected in more ways than we can imagine-I believe they need to speak out (twitter) or no one will know they are not being protected-cps should investigate

Gladys definitely needs to keep her nose out of it. She's doing what she's accusing Paris of doing. Drama is drama Gladys.

You get what you give. Janet is just her aunt not her legal guardian Paris doesn't have to live with her. Janet disrespected Paris so Paris through it back at her. Elder or not to get respect you have to give it first.

I do agree with gladys TO A POINT. I know if i talked back to my mother, she'd slap me back into the 60's. HOWEVER, respecting your elders does not mean you have to take their abuse either. So basically, gladys thinks it is perfectly fine to put your hands on a child and take the money their father left them? if you want to talk respecting your elders, then maybe the majority of the jackson family should have their teeth knocked out for the way they are treating their mother.

Gladys is absolutely right. Paris is just a spoiled brat.

She was around Michael he was young and when his father was doing a similar thing to him.She should think before she speaks.She doesnt know whats happening. Its not OK to hit a child just because she was raised in the South thats no excuse. It isnt 1950 anymore.

Paris would probably beat her down anyway.

this was NOT some child on the net venting about her parents grounding her for smoking or something ..this was a CHILD telling the world she was being lied to about her only guardian and they were being manipulated by the so called adults who want their money. Any thinking person can see this. She has every right to tell those people to get out of her house. If she had not gone forward who knows what these 'adults' would have got away with.

Kids getting threatened for talking back to elders?! It's like I'm living in the 1900's again.
