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.

Janet won't give up! She wants Jackson family members to replace Michael's chosen executors of his estate so that THEY can get the money that executors earn (such as fees and percentages of deals they arrange) instead of Branca/McClain. They KNOW they can't get around the fact that they're excluded from his will, so their only chance to get at that money is to remove the executors Michael chose and put themselves in there to ROYALLY SCREW up the entire estate. They will also be free to SELL THE SONY/ATV CATALOGUE so that they could get enormous fees NOW and take it from the children! BELIEVE IT! That's their plan.

Janet Jackson keeps up fight for Michael Jackson's estate despite 'relentless' negative publicity
In a statement on behalf of Janet and her siblings Randy and Rebbie, lawyer Blair Brown reiterated the claim that executors John Branca and John McClain have never publicly explained how Michael could have signed a will with a Los Angeles dateline when evidence shows he was in New York with the Rev. Al Sharpton at the time.


Janet Jackson isn't backing down.

A lawyer for the "Control" singer said late Friday that she'll "press forward" with her battle against the executors of Michael Jackson's lucrative estate - even though the negative publicity has been "relentless."

In a statement on behalf of Janet and her siblings Randy and Rebbie, lawyer Blair Brown reiterated the claim that executors John Branca and John McClain have never publicly explained how Michael could have signed a will with a Los Angeles dateline when evidence shows he was in New York with the Rev. Al Sharpton at the time.

"Since the loss of Michael, Janet, Randy and Rebbie's principal concern has been and continues to be for the safety and wellbeing of Michael's children, their mother Katherine Jackson, and the entire family," the statement said. "Unfortunately, those people have been harmed by the actions of the executors of Michael's estate."


The letter accuses the executors and "those installed and paid to do their bidding" of hiding behind the questionable do***ents and perpetrating a smear campaign related to treatment of matriarch Katherine Jackson and Michael's daughter Paris, 14.

"The negative media campaign generated by the executors and their agents has been relentless," the letter said. "In recent weeks, the media received preposterous reports - all now proven to be false - of a purported kidnapping of Katherine Jackson and of physical and verbal abuse of a child."

The family's feud went viral last week after a relative reported Katherine missing while she was spending 9-days in seclusion at an Arizona spa on an impromptu trip organized in part by Janet.

Paris complained about the situation on Twitter and celebrity website TMZ posted surveillance video from the kids' Calabasas house that showed Janet grabbing for Paris' cell phone during a tense confrontation.


TMZ also cited unidentified sources saying Janet slapped Paris and called her a "spoiled little b----." The report garnered widespread attention before TMZ retracted it Wednesday saying it never happened.

Janet's lawyer also took issue Friday with a recent estate edict banning Janet, Jermaine, Randy and Rebbie from Katherine's Calabasas house now that she's back home.


"The effect of that notice not only is to damage fundamental family relationships, it is also to isolate Katherine Jackson from anyone questioning the validity of Michael's will," he wrote in his Friday statement.

"It is important to stress that Janet, Randy and Rebbie have questioned the validity of the will with no financial motive whatsoever - the stand to gain nothing financially by a finding that the will is invalid," Brown wrote, noting that Michael's children are his beneficiaries either way.

"What will be gained by a finding of invalidity is that the executors will be replaced and the estate and the guardianship will be managed in a manner that is in the best interests of the children, which is what Michael wanted," Brown said.

The new statement follows after siblings Janet, Rebbie, Randy and Jermaine signed an earlier letter calling on the executors to resign. That letter claimed Katherine suffered a mini-stroke and was stressed out by the executors' actions.

The executors responded saying they were "saddened" by the "false and defamatory" accusations grounded in "stale Internet conspiracy theories."

Jermaine rescinded his signature from the letter earlier this week saying his young son was heartbroken over the ban on visits to Katherine's house.

Katherine, 82, temporarily lost custody of Michael's kids while in Arizona. A judge reinstated her Thursday as a co-guardian with grandson TJ Jackson, the 34-year-old son of Tito Jackson.

"Janet, Randy and Rebbie will continue to press forward in their search for the truth in order to carry out the wishes of their brother Michael," Brown wrote Friday.

**************************


Here's what a certain paragraph above SHOULD have said:


"What will be gained by a finding of invalidity is that the executors will be replaced BY JACKSON FAMILY MEMBERS and the estate and the guardianship will be MISmanaged in a manner that WILL TOTALLY SCREW the children AND DESTROY THE ESTATE, which is what NOT what Michael wanted..." Financial GENIUS Randy Jackson will be the ringleader and he'll PIMP OUT his brother's image to any shady or criminal character who flashes enough cash at him...

Janet doesn't want Paris to enter showbiz, particularly as an actress, because Paris now has a Twitter following of 700,000 -- her own fan base -- and is on the verge of a phenomenal movie career. She'll soon be besieged with movie and marketing deals out the wazoo, quickly and easily eclipsing her jealous Aunt Janet (who CAN'T ACT) -- in fame, film roles, power, and earned income. She's 14, but is tall, beautiful, mature, nice (not NASTY), and looks 20-something.


WATCH OUT JANET -- niece Paris' movie career is about to STEAMROLL right over yours, leaving you in the DUST! And it won't be any Tyler Perry crapola either... When the press starts talkin' 'bout "Miss Jackson," they'll be talkin' 'bout Paris. And people will be sayin' "Janet WHO???" Karma's comin' for you, Janet... What goes around, comes around...


"Money"

Michael Jackson


Money.
Money...
Lie for it
Spy for it
Kill for it
Die for it
So you call it trust
But I say it's just
In the devil's game
Of greed and lust
They don't care
They'd do me for the money
They don't care
They use me for the money
So you go to church
Read the Holy word
In the scheme of life
It's all absurd
They don't care
They'd kill for the money
Do or dare
The thrill for the money
You're saluting the flag
Your country trusts you
Now you're wearing a badge
You're called the "Just Few"
And you're fighting the wars
A soldier must do
I'll never betray or deceive you my friend but...
If you show me the cash
Then I will take it
If you tell me to cry
Then I will fake it
If you give me a hand
Then I will shake it
You'll do anything for money...


[Chorus:]
Anything
Anything
Anything for money
Would lie for you
Would die for you
Even sell my soul to the devil
Anything
Anything
Anything for money
Would lie for you
Would die for you
Even sell my soul to the devil


[Verse 2:]
Insurance?
Where do your loyalties lie?
Is that your alibi?
I don't think so
You don't care
You'd do her for the money
Say it's fair
You sue her for the money
Want your pot of gold
Need the Midas touch
Bet you sell your soul
Cuz your God is such
You don't care
You kill for the money
Do or dare
The thrill for the money
Are you infected with the same disease
Of lust, gluttoney and greed?
Then watch the ones
With the biggest smiles
The idle jabbers...Cuz they're the backstabbers
If you know it's a lie
Then you will swear it
If you give it with guilt
Then you will bear it
If it's taking a chance
Then you will dare it
You'll do anything for money...


[Verse 3:]
You say you wouldn't do it
For all the money in the world
I don't think so
If you show me the man
Then I will sell him
If you ask me to lie
Then I will tell him
If you're dealing with God
Then you will hell him
You'll do anything for money
Anything
Anything
Anything for money
Would lie for you
Would die for you
Even sell my soul to the devil
Even sell my soul to the devil
Even sell my soul to the devil
Even sell my soul to the devil
Even sell my soul to the devil
Even sell my soul to the devil
Even sell my soul to the devil
Even sell my soul to the devil

I don't think that Janet would never hurt the children no matter how mad she gets. Janet and Paris is like two peas in a pod they are very close too each other and she would never hurt them in any way at all so people need too back off and leave the Jackson family alone before I get really
mad and go after someone and I don't think that they want me too come after them so leave them
alone right now.
