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.

@ohboy if TMZ could count on the validity of the contents of the video, they'd stand by it and stand by their story because that's what would stand up in a court of law.

Truth    

TMZ, POST THE ENTIRE STATEMENT BY JANET'S ATTORNEY BLAIR BROWN YOU IDIOTS. YOU MAKE IT SOUND LIKE YOU MADE THE STATEMENT AS AN APOLOGY.
.
"Ms. Jackson did not slap Paris, and did not call her a 'spoiled little bitch' or a 'bitch.' "[Those] false statements are highly damaging to Ms. Jackson's reputation and have caused her significant harm."
.
JANET IS ON THE PR AND LEGAL SPIN MACHINE. AGAIN THERE IS NO AUDIO TO THE TAPE. THRE IS NO EVIDENCE SHE DID NOT CALL PARIS A "BITCH" OR "SPOILED BRAT". #TRUTH!!

glad to see TMZ is a news source that can admit wrong. She still grabbed at her private stuff. Still wrong.

TMZ has to say that, but i still don't believe it. Something nasty went down and the way the video looked, Janet swiping at her phone etc., Janet is just pissed she got caught.
