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.

@BNWW- I see you forget that the story of Katherine being taken from the kids is not being retracted. It has nothing to do with people "out to get the Jacksons. A couple family members acknowledge what happened. And also, no one would be fighting for custody of the kids if everything was hunky dory. Janet Jackson got caught bullying a 14-year-old, live with it bro. Nothing you can say will change her actions.

Ahhh looks like tmz is being threatened with a lawsuit? Listen, you would have known that a week ago if you bothered to read Paris' twitter where she answered "no" when someone asked her that question.

Don't get like Radar TMZ...check your sources & double check and research!

Okay then, yeah right, whatever you say! Ok then everyone back to loving Janet again! She's getting so desperate for people to like her again that's shes sicking lawyers on people! If that doesn't REEK of desperation, I dont know what does. And whether or not she did those things, she STILL BULLIED THAT CHILD! She can sick her lawyers on people all day long and people still know the rotten truth about her. Sorry Janet, your career is still dead, and you pulled the trigger! This woman is so pathetic sicking her lawyers on people in a DESPERATE and SAD bid for people to like her again! She is a rotten bully and she makes me sick. Damage was done the minute you were shown on camera acting like a c u n t. I don't need to hear what you said, or even see you slap the child to know you were bullying her.

Maybe you should have looked at the video you posted of the event. It was easy to see there was no slap.

Excellent, excellent damage control. Janet has an image to uphold. She can't have it said that she is abusive. No one will ever know the truth but Janet and Paris.

TMZ needs to be sued fined and shut down ASAP. They are what I would call an evil entity ( if there is such a thing as "evil") They make $ on the backs of other people's reputations and livelihoods. TMZ sells cut and paste BS stories with no respect for anyone but the $ they are making by building and maintaining their gossip brand.

But clearly those kids and others were still subjected to unnecessary EMOTIONAL ABUSE at Randy, Jermaine, Janet and Rebbie's hands.
