Janet Jackson

Did Not Slap or Verbally Abuse Paris Jackson

8/1/2012 9:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0801_janet_paris-jackson
Janet Jackson did not slap or verbally abuse Paris Jackson during a confrontation at the Jackson family home in Calabasas last week.

TMZ published a story last week based on sources who told us Janet went off on Michael Jackson's daughter after the singer tried to grab Paris' cell phone. We also reported Janet called Paris a "spoiled little bitch."

Although we believed the story to be true when we published it, we have now determined it was not correct ... Janet did not slap or otherwise touch Paris, nor did she verbally abuse her.

She tried to grab the girl's cell phone. Twice. That's disturbing enough.

Somebody got a call from a lawyer! TMZ needs to vet their sources better.

WOW!!! TMZ admits to a mistake. Haven't seen that in a while. Now, will you also acknowledge that Jermaine Jackson traveled with his brothers and not alone, too. You guys really have it in for the Jacksons but you're all for the executors!!! Wonder why...

Here comes the Jackson spin, trying to save what little is left for it's name.

Damn, TMZ. You recant once Janet threatens to sue... Anyway, this story left Paris open to a lot of undue criticism. While the family fiasco seems real and true, let's not forget Paris is still a child, and those children were absolutely being kept away from their rightful guardian.

Given that you showed the tape of the incident almost immediately, and it showed no slap, I'm surprised it took you this long.

I don't trust Janet but for the sake of the kids I hope she did not slap Paris. My gut tells me she did and now is realizing that public opinion is against her.

I get it...probably true, because Paris the tweeting princess would have corrected the story if false....
