Tmz Apology For Janet Jackson And Paris Jackson - There Was No Slap Or Verbal Abuse


TMZ have been forced to apologise today (August 1, 2012) after claiming that Janet Jackson slapped her niece Paris Jackson during a family altercation. The article, published last week, also claimed that Janet called Paris a "spoiled little bitch." The accusations were then repeated, as several media outlets used TMZ as a source for the story.
The statement from TMZ read as follows: "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."
The ongoing saga of the Jackson family, the custody of Michael Jackson's children and the fate of Jacko's fortune have all been at the forefront of the tabloid media over the last week or two. Janet Jackson and several of her siblings have contested the legitimacy of the signature on Michael Jackson's will. They have accused his lawyers of forging the signature and of coercing the family matriarch, Katherine Jackson, into agreeing to them getting a higher percentage of Jacko's earnings. The Jacksons may have had an apology over this particular erroneous story but it seems that trouble is still brewing.

Nice job, TMZ, but I do give you minimal credit for at least apologizing (fear of being sued, perhaps?). Your source was obviously Trent Jackson who Katherine fired immediately. Now let's hear Star Jones, Gladys Knight, Roland Martin (Jermaine just withdrew from the infamous letter, also) apologize for all their trash talk. Bet you won't see it.

Trouble will always be brewing while TMZ and the like create their own headlines and other so-called news outlets repeat them as though they are fact. Haven't you guys learned yet?

Why do you persist in using the term Jacko when Michael said so many times how much he disliked being called that? Show some respect.

TMZ needs to stop this and get their s-it straight! Can they ever put out a story on the up and up. But as we all know that as long as there is a Jackson left in that family TMZ and others will always have something to print, even if they lie or make things up about them (even the ones who have passed on)! This is the reason MJ's kids need to stay off of TWITTER AND THE OTHERS. Janet knows this all to well that is why she was trying to take Paris's cellphone to stop her from putting the family's dirty laundry in the open on Twitter. After all, that MJ had to deal with hopefully, Paris and her brothers will learn and then they will understand what Janet was trying to do and why just like they now understand why their dad covered their faces when they were with him!!
