Gladys Knight

Paris Jackson Deserves

Her Teeth KNOCKED OUT

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!"

Paris is a minor, you touch her in any way to harm her and you are going to jail. No wonder Micheal wanted his children kept away from certain people. Gladys please stay out of this drama, it can only back fire. Micheal is spinning in his grave and if any way possible he will haunt his wayward relatives.

Wow..after reading some of the comments..there is no wonder why there are so many out of control kids..there are too many adults treating kids like they are adults.."respect is earned not given" that's stupid. She shouldn't knock her teeth out but there would be some consequences..

I understand where Gladys Knight is coming from but she has to also understand that Paris IS RIGHT!! It's not the Jackson family home,it's THEIR home and you just cant roll up over there making demands on or at these children. Yep, Paris may be a spoiled little bitch but it's still her house and Janet should have resepected that and left.Gladys Knight is "ol' school" which is no longer acceptable in today's society. So,old lady,mind your hands and your tongue.

Oh my Gladys........you need your head examined if you think it's acceptable to know a child's teeth out? Violence is not accepted in 2012, get with the program lady. I don't accept a 14 yo talking that way to anyone but to use violence is worse.

Gladys should but out. I don't think she knows all the facts. Janet helped to take their Grandma away from them. Janet is also ticked off because she wanted Michael's money. She probably figured she deserved it. She hasn't done much lately with her own career. All she is doing is thinking about herself.

I also was raised to be respectful to my elders but Janet was wrong and sometime just because they are your elders does not make them right or the situation right, they were trying to take the kids for like extortation of their mother for money and that is wrong, this is the reason that so many kids are abuised each and everyday because we were taught by our elders not to tell anyone anything, and now I teach my grandkids if someone tells you not to tell anyone than something is wrong and you should tell and I believe that the abuse will not be with so many children because these kids are our future so if we mess them up before the future then the abuse cycle will continue.

I agree on the respect issue - you don't talk back to your elders. However, Janet calling the child a spoiled little bitch - how does Gladys (Janet too) expect a spoiled little bitch to behave?! Janet should not have lost her cool using that language at the child. Anyway, Paris responded the way Janet expected her too since Janet knows what she is - a spoiled little bitch. :P

Gladys's comment is so stupid. Respect your elders? I agree to some point, but if some old hag tried to slap me or curse me out, I'm not going to sit there and take it. Respect is earned, Treat others as you want to be treated, No matter who you are, old or young. Paris is a smart girl and even if she is a spoiled brat, she has the right to defend herself from her bitch aunt.

The person ultimately to blame for the Jackson kids situation is MJ himself. He brought 3 kids into this world without dealing with the issues that put him in the ground before his kids reach their majority. He also left them at the mercy of his crazy family. His mother is too old, and she didn't do anything to protect him from his father. Little wonder she can't keep the rest of the buzzards from picking the bones of Michael's estate. The only other person to blame is that stupid Debbie Rowe. Why any woman would sell her kids to a drugged out weirdo is beyond me! As for MJ's kids, I don't believe it when they say how great a dad MJ was. Maybe he had days when he could function as a half-way decent parent, but how many of those could there have been? It was reported that he spent days drugged up. Those kids probably spent a lot of time with nannies who probably tried to hide how bad their father really was. That said, the kids probably learned how to take care of themselves like a lot of kids of addicts. Paris, Prince, and Blanket may tell the whole world that MJ was a great father, but that doesn't make it true. Like a lot of kids, they learned
to defend the only parent they've ever known. I pity them because of the mess their father left them.
