Janet Jackson

Did Not Slap or Verbally Abuse Paris Jackson

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

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.

Shame on TMZ for not checking their sources but its not surprises. This is a sensationalist tabloid. As for those acting like Janet did wrong, Janet should not have had to reach for Paris' cell phone. Paris is the one out of control. No one mentions how she favorite "fvck Janet" on her twitter. You try saying that about your aunt or uncle for all the public to see. She is a typical teen with no boundaries and too much power and at the end of the day, she is going to be filled with regret for the decisions she made during these immature years. Janet has always shown nothing but love and selflessness when it comes to her mother and her other family members. Paris just came into the picture and she is showing her ways online. None of the other millions of nieces and nephews had problems with Janet, why her? She needs discipline like all teens do and her concerned aunt was not bullying her, but trying to set limits that should have been set long ago. Its sad that people want to see what they want to see and believe what they want to.

Duh, Paris already tweeted days ago that it wasn't true. Obviously this is a family issue that should have been handled in-house and not publicly which why, more than likely, Janet tried to take Paris's phone. Btw, Paris is a child, if an adult in your family tells you to stop doing something you listen. If it was my family, she would have been having a meeting with the belt

Janet is just jealous of Paris because, Paris does not have to have her face broken apart and put back together. Paris has very pretty eyes! Look at how much money these people have paid surgeons to make them look white! Maybe they feel the kids are biologically not his, and 2 of them are WHITE, so they do not deserve the money.

Maybe there was no slap or verbal abuse, but what Janet did to those children (along with Randy and Jermaine) is disgraceful and much worse than physical or verbal abuse. It was emotional abuse and they should be ashamed of themselves. Michael would be horrified that his own siblings pulled this crap with his children and mother. Their true colors came out in this one. Shame on them.
