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.

Oh please, this is Janet's team at work. Terrible how the Jackson machine is more worried about Janet's reputation than Paris'. Poor TJ has his job cut out for him.

I notice a pattern here. TMZ is a joke and the people who support them are jokes as well and the "hate the jacksons" comments reflect poor brain capacity.

Some of you people here are crazy and delusional! Of course Janet got her lawyers involved. Any celebrity with enough sense would of called their lawyers, especially when the story wasn't true! In the video that's been posted EVERYWHERE, Janet's hands never touch Paris's face! She only tries to take her phone because Paris is texting while she's trying to talk to her. IF the video did show
Janet actually slapping her niece in the face, TMZ would be able to keep their original statement. DUH! You people are just looking for someone to hate.

Jules - The letter was released on the internet for the world to read. In defense, the executor's had to respond. Branca is an entertainment lawyer, not a civil, criminal, trial, prosecutor, defense or accounting lawyer. Any person who writes a letter to someone telling him he is despicable, commiting fraud, stressed his mother to have a mini-stroke, deceitful, a liar, and greedy will never get a response. Randy's statement in the letter also says "our deepest desire is to give to the world a gift of hope, love and unity" which obviously was not reflected in his letter. Randy's letter was not marked confidential because he copied AEG management, Trent and Tom Barrack. The Estate is not required to accommodate anyone except the beneficiaries. The beneficiares are the only ones with standing that can contest the will or file for breach of duties by the executor’s. The statutes for contesting expired 120 days after the will was validated by the probate court. Randy is 2.5 years too late.

Paris is a pretty girl. Hopefully she won't succumb to the Jackson family's plastic surgery obsession.

Hahahaha! In the days of real journalism this action on the part of TMZ would be a retraction to the story. We know who still has clout in the Jackson's family with money, Ms Jackson. TMZ backed away from story like a little bitch.

Yes it was released on the internet for the world to see, but WHO released the letter. Do you have any proof that it was the family that released the lette? Just asking?

Jules - The letter from Randy was made public prior to the executor's reponding. Randy's letter was released the monring of Tuesday, July 17. The executor's responded after that.

Paris Jackson responded on twitter that her aunt Janet did not slap her. So I already knew TMZ got its story wrong. Also I bet Stacey Brown (a Jackson family insider) is the one who called TMZ to start the lie about Janet slapping Paris and calling her a little bitch. Stacey is the same guy who co-wrote a book with the late Bob Jones falsely claiming that MJ licked Gavin Arvizo's head while they traveled on a plane. He is always hanging around Rebbie Jackson and at the same time he is always throws the Jacksons under the bus for money.

Journalist are quick to report the gossip but slow if at all, to correct their own mistakes. I'd just like to thank TMZ for admitting they were wrong and letting all of us know it on the website.
