Gladys Knight had to step in and give her two cents on the drama occurring inside the family of the late Michael Jackson. Michael’s daughter, Paris Jackson, is the subject of the most recent controversy in a complex drama that has involved Michael’s will, family fights and a feud for the ages. The battle allegedly came to a head when Janet slapped Paris and called her a “spoiled little b*tch.”
In typical spoiled California teenager tradition, Paris then slapped Janet back and said, “This is our house. Not the Jackson family house. Get the f*ck out!”
Now, you know that Gladys Knight, coming from the south, has never heard of a child behaving this way. At least that’s not how most of us grew up. So, Gladys stepped in during an interview on “The Talk” to make it clear that Paris would have a hard time eating solid food after stepping up and disrespecting her elders in such a blatant and egregious way.
It’s drama, that’s what it is. If you lived up under the microscope as this family does, everybody has dysfunctionality in their families, either one way or the other. See, I’m from the south and [we] was raised in that southern way. You have to understand Paris is what, 14? How old is Janet? Who’s the one who tries to direct the other one here? And I would think that it’s a good thing she let’s Paris know who she is. She is a Jackson, she shouldn’t be putting the business out there like that. Cause people read into whatever they want to read into, that’s how they get the drama. So, she’s just trying to protect her, in a way. But if she [Paris] called me that, she wouldn’t have any teeth…You respect your elders.
Watch Gladys give her take on the situation right here.
