Janet Jackson

Did Not Slap or Verbally Abuse 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.

Icegypsy,

What was released of the surveillance video showed the SUV's arriving in the driveway, then Prince and Paris getting out of the first one, seemingly initially unaware their relatives had arrived behind them, then being called over to them, the two kids walking over, greeting, hugging who appears to be Janet, and then Janet and Paris walking side by side towards the house. That whole part of the interaction took not more than a minute, probably less. Then Janet suddenly positions herself in front of Paris and raises her left hand abruptly, seemingly to try to get the phone, while holding her own cell phone in her right hand in a position that suggests she's recording Paris's response. Paris simply holds on to her phone and steps back. Janet makes another grab, Paris steps back again. Then Randy appears and scoots Janet away, while holding his own phone and recording but leaving an opening for Paris to walk into the house, which she does w/o speaking. My point here is that the whole interaction was quite brief, certainly not enough time to warrant Janet to escalate to the point of grabbing Paris's phone because she wasn't paying attention to her. No, in my opinion there was something more sinister going on with Janet and Randy. Actually, it appeared to me that Janet really didn't try that hard to get the phone. My guess the point of the positioning herself in front of Paris, grabbing at the phone while recording Paris was to provoke her to do something. Perhaps to take back to Arizona and show to Katherine. They clearly were telling her a bunch lies while keeping her out of touch with the kids. Prince mentioned this in his one tweet about the situation.

@ DD
Believe none of what you hear and half of what you see. As far as Jermaine is concerned no one from the family has come out to my knowledge and said anything regarding non payment of child support or that Katherine was caring for his children

Janet didn't do that - she just tried to force a child off her property- kept her care giver from her with an assortment of lies - terrorized her and tried to take her money - that's all

The fact that you all repeatedly stated it is worse than if it had actually occurred. Blatant lies!

If I were Janet I'd sue the sh*t out of TMZ! By the time i got done with them their name would be S.O.L. Child abuse accusations are nothing to be played with. Neither is pedaphilia, and wasnt Michael accused of that? Its not right to go dragging somebody's good name thru the dirt & then not even give a decent apology once it is found to be a lie. They better be lucky I'm not Janet, because by the time I got done with them I would own TMZ!

Janet should slap the taste out of that little self entitled spoiled brat. Like daughter like father. Give this wretched little puke a few years and she will be a drug addicted piece of trash like her father.

There is a reason that the judge banned Janet, Jermaine, and Randy from the home of MJ's children. They are not allowed to go there at all. He made that decision based on evidence he knew about. The judge knows more than TMZ and more than we the readers. He's got some real facts at hand. Judges don't make decisions like this lightly. If Katherine wants to visit with those particular children of hers, Janet, Randy, or Jermaine, she can do so, but at some other location than the house where the children live. So everybody can protest all they want to, and issue denials, and threaten lawsuits, but unless something threatening to the safety of those children happened on the grounds of their home, the judge would not have BANNED those people.

mj fan forever    

Trying to kidnap children and kidnap their own mother drugging her, are crimes, not to mention about slapping and insulting a child, that old bitch money-grubber should know it!!!! Because I DO believe with NO doubt that that old bitch dared to slap Paris and I never read Paris' denial on the matter on her twitter account in that same day!!! Michael Jackson NEVER hit his children, he would have kicked her broken ass off many times even if that old bitch would have never dared to do such a thing in Michael's presence!!!! Michael warned his beloved children from this bunch of parasites and they are smart children like their dad!!!! And even Diana Ross made know she does not want to have anything to do with these delinquents as she knows all of them leeches parasites money-grubbers very well, who should get arrested for their despicable actions!!!!

Say what you may
All the judge needs is to hear from Paris is that any of the Jackson siblings ofended or tried to terrorize Blanket, Paris or Prince. Do you think that for such money hungry: Janet, Jermaine or others it is difficult in an arrgument to slip their lips that they do not agree with Mike's will and they don't consider his "white, money bought kids" legit ?

All Paris has to do to make Janet pissed off is to try to record her saying so, threthen her with publicizing it or tell her she has no right to be on their property.

Kids may be underage, but they are no fools. They have been raised in the cir***stances that made them grow up and smarten up faster. They are no fools and know they are not accapted by the black Jackson family and they know that they are in the midst of some friggin money war....

The law take kids side, but kids' weakness lies in teir age. They dependant on adults, and the adults are money hungry, wicked and have army of lawyers and spin doctors to help them out.

All the kids have is the will and public to keep and eye on them and to ensure their rights are not violated. Are you surprized they have to resort to twitter ? What else whould you do surrounded by hienae ?!
