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.

Some of these MJ fans/Pairs Fans make me sick- every single on of them was on Janet Jock when she she perform for MJ during the MTV tribute, when she defended him on Oprah, showed to support him in court during the molestation trial and during the Doctor Murray trial. As far as I can see is that there's more to the story. Janet Jackson is not the bad guy here, The same way the media attacked MJ and false accusations was made against Michael is the same way they attacking his sister now. shame on you if you attack Janet, I support the whole family because that whats Michael would have expected and want from his fans, not to takes sides but to support and pray for everyone involved. with L.O.V.E remember he's message i cant be the only fan who remembered that

I am in support of Paris for speaking up and not being silent during this very emotional ordeal. Obviously, it was not a kodak moment.

I'm glad to see this story. It proves TMZ doesn't know what the **** they're talking about. Don't **** w/ Janet TMZ you'll lose everytime. And another thing, just because the Jacksons have had thier share of bad publicity, they're still human. Don't forget that all families have drama. I could write a book on mine. Paris needs to stop airing out all thier dirty laundry. At the end of the day it's none of our ****in business. I knew this story about Janet slapping Paris was fake. The alleged facts didn't match up at all. Ms Jackson is the **** and I'll ride or die for her if anyone talks **** about her. She should rhythm nation all over your ****in backs ya trashbags dirty bucket mouth bitches.

Oh please, she is a 14 year old girl, going through puberty and thinks she is grown. I'm sorry but any other kid would have had the phone taken and the internet, tv, radio, xbox, and any other form of entertainment removed from their possession. That's what's wrong with society today, adults letting kids, off the hook for bad behavior and media dictating how parents and adults should treat them.

Where are all these stories coming from? Where is the source?! How are we to believe anything TMZ says if there's no source and they keep contradicting themselves?

I wish people would just leave this family alone. Some of the comments on here are crazy and stupid. The ones that are judging are the ones who have issues within their own families, its just not played out on camera. Im sure Janet is not bothered with ignorant people who dont even know her or anything about her personal life. Another thing, maybe if more parents took the time to remove phones from their children hands and replace them with books for a better education the world would be a better place. No need to judge, we all have issues within our life.. Have a seat and keep your negative comments to yourself!!!!

Just because that old bitch was sly enough to not slap and insult Paris in front of the camera, this does not mean it is not true!!!! And I never read Paris' denial on the matter after checking her twitter account that day!!!! The COPS reported that a scuffle actually occurred at the house and did not specify which were the people involved and surely that old bitch is able to do a thing like that after kidnapping her own mother and trying to kidnap three children for the hungry for money!!!!! Leeches parasites delinquents should only go to jail!!!

If anyone doubts Janet's lawyers have come after TMZ, take note that this retraction doesn't even comment on what Paris allegedly said to Janet.
