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!"

Maybe the Jackson Adults should have some respect for their mother and not manilpulate her and lie to her and take her away from her grandchildren and put their mother into the middle of this mess and upset the kids. She is in her 80's for christ sake ,and these kids have loss their father. The Jackson Adult children brought on this mess , not MJ kids. They are fighting back the only way they can,obvious know one there really cares about them. Gladys should keep her mouth shut. .

Paris and her siblings MUST LEARN how to protect themselves especially from their greedy relatives because they only have themselves to turn to.

If my super nasty aunt who by the way lives in Hawaii and everybody just hates her would lay her nasty hand on my face and would call me the b word, she would definitely get it back from me especially if there would be no provocation, more in particular like like in Paris and her siblings' case that her aunt Janet and her other greedy siblings are all conniving to steal my departed parent's money and control our estate. DEFINITELY that kind of an aunt would get it back from me.

RESPECT BEGETS RESPECT. IT IS EARNED NOT DEMANDED FROM ANYONE.

And obviously those kids Jerry Sandusky raped should have just bent over and taken it up the poop shute, because you know, respect your elders and all.

Usually, when you're beaten with a belt as a child you beat your own children. Michael Jackson managed to break that mold, although he ended up with so many demons that it eventually killed him. Obviously Gladys Knight thinks that children suffering pain and humiliation is the way to go.

Give respect and you get respect, that's what I was taught. You earn it, not demand it...perhaps Janet should learn that as well as Ms. Knight.

How can a child learn respect when the adults in their family show no respect? Paris refuses to be a victim, she is not disrespectful, the adults in her family are.Isn't this what we try to teach our kids? if they are uncomfortable then something is wrong. Bravo to Paris for sticking up for herself and her brothers anf grandmothers. Janet does not deserve respect from anyone.By the way how many childrten has Janet raised? oh yea NONE!!!

Yeah maybe that would be true if Paris was dealing with a rational adult. Or hell even someone who deserves an once of respect. These poor kids have no one they can trust, all they care about is money. The drama they are putting these kids through is insane. And the grandmother is on vacation? Without telling her grandchildren that she is legally responsible for and without leaving them in someones care? Shes clearly being manipulated. I don't blame the kids, I would say the same thing to her.

Why does everyone think they should have an opinion about the events in other peoples lives? Worry about your own life.

Gladys, quit show business now. A child beater like you now has zero fans.

I've now lost respect for Gladys Knight. Apparently she belongs to the old school where adults can do anything they want to kids and the kids can't speak up.
