Gladys Knight Says Michael Jackson’s Daughter Paris “Wouldn’t Have any Teeth” If She Were in Her House

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.

  1. I hope to live long enough to see Paris in playboy! I find it hard to believe that she is biologically Mike Jacksons child. Why has’nt the BIO father come forward…The girl needs some structure or she will be dead of drug OD by 20 years of age, just an opinion. So sad that all this is heaped upon Grandmother Jackson. Might just be a great example of how big money messes peoples live up.

    • SHE LOOKS THE WAY SHE DOES BECAUSE SHE IS BIRACIAL. WHEN SHE WAS SMALL SHE HAD A HEAD OF CURLS WHICH ARE NOW CHEMICALLY STRAIGHT. LOOK AT MARIAH CAREY.

      SHE IS A LEGAL HEIR, NOBODY CAN TAKE HER AWAY, HOWEVER SHE IS IN NEED OF DIRECTION…SHE HAS A CASE OF THE “BIG HEAD”.

      • Those children are not Michael’s biological children — they are not biracial. Their biological father is very white.

        • This is not the issue here, whether they are biological children or not. It is ridiculous to talk about it. Only Michael could challenge paternity.
          Prince, Paris and Blanket are the children of Michael and nobody has the right to deny it.
          Since no one has the right to try to force Paris to do what she wants. Much less Janet. Janet, Jermaine and Randy broke into the house, tried to abduct the children, while filming the reaction of Paris and still have those who defend them?

          Glagys Knight lives in the fifteenth century

        • There no such thing as very white!

        • I have never thought that any of those children were Michael’s biological children, but legally his because he evidently has legal papers that recognizes them as his children. This does not have any bearing on the issue at hand. I don’t agree with Gladys Knight that you always respect your elders. I respect elders that conduct themselvs as elders. If Janet was in Paris’s home and called her a bit— and slapped her, then Janet deserved to be slapped back. She is an aunt, not Paris’s mother or grandmother. The Bible speaks of showing respect to elders, but also defines elders and their responsibilities and roles as well. I hardly think that they way Michael’s siblings have been conducting themselves is very Christianike. They are wanting to take control and going about it in a disrespecful way, which is what is causing all the conflict and drama. Michael’s mother is getting respect from the grandchildren, ad she is is the only one that matters in this situation other than the children who are depending on her. The siblings need to back off tryng to take over Michael’s childrens’ lives and allow his mother to continue to raise them, unless of course, the grandmother is no longer capable of overseeing them or herself. Either way, going behind the back of your mother to take control does not grant any respect in my world.

          • I hope your not saying the mansion is Paris’, until any of them are old enough to aquire Michael’s money she doesn’t own s**t. And yes if she got smart with her aunt Janet should have knocked her spoiled a*s out.

      • Mariah looks bi-racial, Paris…. hmmmm

      • all of the jacksons children are biracial with the exception fo rebbie’s. they all have the jacksons features. their skin tone is light but u can tell right away they r jacksons. none of micheal’s kids look like them..the reason why..those are not his kids.

        • Those are his children, what the h**l is wrong with you crazy people? Michael either adopted or paid a surrogate to have those kids, so they ARE his children. Blood does not make one a parent. Anyone can have a child, but that does NOT make one a parent. He left his money to his children, his mother and charity. So stop saying those are NOT his children because they are.

          • THANK YOU! I agree with you totally those are definitely his kids. Paris and Blanket look a lot like Michael. Blanket has Michael’s eyes, and Paris has Michael’s smile, and eyes as well. I don’t know why these d**n people up here are making it such a big issue!!

          • I believe Michael paid a surrogate.Being an afro American woman,the kids are not biracial.If Michael was the real father their skin tone and hair would be more towards the afro American tones and textures.

          • I believe Michael paid a surrogate.Being an afro American woman,the kids are not biracial.If Michael was the real father their skin tone and hair would be more towards the afro American tones and textures.People that have black fathers and white mothers dont have straight hair or be fair skinned. Michael was a brown skin man himself,the only way the kids would look like the way they look if Michael himself was like 1/3 afro American himself. With Mariah Carey I dont believe her father is a dark skin afro American. I know this because I have family that is biracial.

        • Are you kidding me? All of the Jackson kids are biracial?????? Like NONE of the Jackson kids are biracial. Every single Jackson brother got married to black women and had kids with them. I have no idea where you get your information from. You better do your research.

    • Comments by Gladys Knight surprised me. I never expected to hear something so cruel coming out of her mouth.Knocking ones teeth down her throat – awful! Here is a 14 year old girl being surrounded by adults, missing guardian, needed protection not violence. She is a CHILD! What her future holds no one know; but, I pray that someone will guard this child and offer her the type of environment (love, patience, wisdom, morals, healthy opportunities, friends that she can trust, just plain be there for her) that she is due.

      I heard that Jermaine and Randy couldn’t make their child support payments. I hope this is false because this tells me that they are dead beat dads.

      • THELMA THIS WAS A FIGURE OF SPEECH AND YOU KNOW IT I HAVE NEVER KNOWN PERSONALLY ANY AFRICAN-AMERICAN WOMAN WHO DISCIPLINED A CHILD BY ACTUALLY KNOCKING THEIR TEETH DOWN THEIR THROAT UNLESS THEY WERE A CHILD ABUSER ETC.

        AFRICAN-AMERICAN WOMEN ARE ALWAYS PORTRAYED IN THIS MANNER AND I AM SICK OF IT…SHAME ON YOU!

        PARIS “CHECK YOURSELF”.

        • Amen and Thank You, people take stuff so literal these days. The only thing that could happen is Miss Katheryn passes and the real Shiz is gonna hit the fan. That Lady really deserves a break, Bless her Heart she is an Angel in my book. Peace

        • Tell her sis…..those kids are more fotunate then our kids will eva be..and she called me a b***h she woould be picking herself off the dam floor..kudos Gladys…

        • A really great mom

          I totally agree it’s just a figure of speech rather than actually knocking their teeth down their throats we just let off steam by saying we would. I grew up back east and believe me if we we’re to speak to any elders in the manner Paris did to Janet not only would we have gotten slapped by Janet when our parent or guardian or whomever was responsible for us returned home we would have gotten it a lot worst and if we spoke to the neighbor that way she would have disciplined us as well. This is not the dark ages of parenting but the best description of a village raising a child to be respective and to have self respect it helps them to become contributing members of society and to have self worth. I think that Paris is at that age where just as other unprivileged girls want to do what they want without having to follow rules, the fact that she has more money and the overwhelming possibility that someone has told her that she shouldn’t let the people who have cared for her tell her what to do and that he money makes her non-responsible for her action. What they should also make her aware that down the road there are situations that all the money in the world can’t buy her way out of once she has made the choice to do whatever it is she’s aching to do, Paris should remember two things,(1) If the choice your struggling with is a struggle than maybe it’s not for you no matter how many other girls are doing it, don’t get caught up in the “Every body does it or just try it once you won’t get hooked or pregnant.” If you notice they’re either not doing it are need a scapegoat. (2) Remember the good things about your father and what type of person he hopes you will be I’m sure he only wants the best for you and your brothers. Remember he was a great father but he was also a human begin and he made some mistakes along his life but he was ultimately a father first and the King of Pop became a second position for him after he was blessed with the birth of his children. I know Paris may never read this but nevertheless It should be said.

      • I agree with Gladys Knight. Parise is being disrespectful. She needs an a*s whipping! I don’t care who she is or wha

        t of USA she live in .

      • Oh come on….she was exaggerating! She wouldn’t literally knock her kids teeth out. But she would put them in their place, wich is how it should be. Kids need to know and learn respect.

      • Surprised? You are just too stupid for words! Old school blk mothers never played games! These White kids in this crazy azz family are something else! They are not biologically Jacksons. Michael was obsessed with Whitey- that has never been a secret. Now, theyre are being raised as White kids with privilege and clearly lacking discipline. They need their assess whooped. Janet should have knocked that 14 yr old a*s out!

      • Thelma PLEASE Gladys is right. That child don’t want 2listen & after Gladys knocks the H*LL out of Paris she needs to find & KICK YOUR A*S. This child needs disipline NOW and a swift Kick in the b**t can’t hurt!!! Give me a break with ur jibberish FOOL!!

        • LMAO at your comment. Its so true, these kids today dont know what too say out of their darn mouths to adults. I grew up in that era where you would never disrespect your elders, and certainly not use profanity at them. Yep… that would have gotten your teeth knocked out!@

      • T.A. ROBB
        YOU SOUND YOUNG! WHEN I GREW UP “BACK IN THE DAY”..YOU DID NOT GO OUTSIDE THE FAMILY AND TALK TO STRANGERS ABOUT FAMILY BUSINESS. YOU DIDN’T EMBARRASS YOUR YOUR MOTHER OR GRANDMOTHER BECAUSE THAT IMPLIED YOU AREN’T IN CHARGE OF YOUR HOME. MY MOTHER WOULD SAY THE SAME THING.

      • @Thelma, That was simply a figure of speech to indicate the zero tolerance of back talking and disrespect. You were surprised to hear that from Gladys because the level of violence and abuse that you have chosen to color her remarks with are NOT consistent with her character and who she authentically is. Your being surprised alone should have been an indication that perhaps you had interpreted what she said as erroneously as you have. It is ashamed that today’s culture is so ultra sensitive to any form of corpral punishment and it’s to the detriment of the children. Let’s be clear physical abuse is one thing discipline is another. You may hold to your views of spanking but you do not reserve the right to impose those same views on those who choose to discipline their children with spanking. As Ms. Knight indicated growing up in the south, this was typical verbage and children knew what lines not to cross. It’s people like you who empower children to blatantly disrepect their elders and live ill- mannered lives!!!!!! It’s ridiculous!!!!!!

      • They share the same woman who had a child or children by the both of them.

      • U say she was surrounded by adults OK so that gives her a right to be disrespectful? And those adults were not strangers to her so that is no excuse…yes Micheal left them nothing but I’m more then sure Janet doesn’t need Mike’s money the rest of them maybe so…

      • Please, if your not familiar with the way “we” talk then just be quiet. Gladys used a figure of speech that we jokingly say! My lord get a grip. She means Paris would be punished for being disrespectful. Now if she got smart with me an adult, I’d punch her in her d**n throat!,(in other words she’d learn to BE respectful and shut her mouth.) Now do you get it? I mean REALLY?

      • This child does not need to be abused – what she needs is some normal relatives. Dont get it twisted her and her sibling are the ones with the money – even if it isn’t in their complete control presently it will be soon enough. janet is not going to knock anybody’s teeth out because she is Barred from the property. Ha so I guess she and ms. gladys found out who is in CONTROL. Again ha – The jacksons boys better get jobs and janet better worry about herself and stop trying to get money that evidently MJ didn’t want them to have. I am glad they are barred – they went to that house started a commotion and tried to control stupid katherine. Who has been weak all of her sad life, she is stupid. But when Paris kept tweeting they got her back didn’t they – idiots and any body her who encourages kid being beat or keeping abusive situations under wraps is an Sanduskian – school of Jerry Sandusky. Sick people all of you

        • dude..JOHN what planet are you on??? Janet does not need her brothers money$$$$$ okay. Disrespect is disrespect…period. We were taught to respect our parents, elders, teachers and all those in authority!!! get it. This was not abuse I got whuppins, got beat when I disobeyed my parents. I turned out okay and I did the same to my kids. No pun intended…okay. There is a point when some parents take things to far…its how one handles each situation….Kudos for Ms Gladys for her comments. thisis why so many young people today are OUT OF CONTROL…..and out of hand. STFU…

    • Man, I think you just put yourself at the top of the FBI’s child predatory watch list you sick@$$.

    • If Michael Jackson, wanted to claim these kids as his own, it is none of your d**n business, or anyone’s else’s, if he actually fathered them, or not. Irregardless who the actual parents made be, you didn’t earn one penny of this man’s money, and none of it would have landed in your stupid hands. Instead of concentrating on other peoples lives, why don’t you take your sorry a*s out into the world, and earn your own d**n money, and stop sitting around gossiping about other peoples lives.

  2. My sentiment exactly, beautiful Ms. Knight….

  3. What s with the ” where is the bio father stuff coming from. The Michael Jackson s children are His. Period. Whether or not there is a drop of Jackson blood running in their veins. That s not the issue..The issue is also not about having too much money to be raised right. That s a falsehood. It s about Paris being disrespectful to her adult family members. Her fannie DOES need to be whipped and should have whipped a long time ago. Teenagers can be a challenge. Old lady Jackson is too old for all this drama and her children are trying to help. Spare the rod, spoil the child. I m sure they let her get away with stuff because her father died but truth is they re going to have to let her know who s in charge at least for the next four years.

  4. Praying time…………..

  5. Ditto to everything you said JON!!OMG..And Ditto to Ms. Knight.I also feel as though Paris has known for long time that she and her brothers ARE NOT biologically Michael’s and that is why it is so easy for Paris to distespect her ” family”. And also why the Jackson’s have let them get away with so much. Areal Aunt, one who know’s this is her “blood” more than not, would have made sure that never happened again! True parentage needs to be known, just so these Children can stop feeling so out there and maybe, get a grip…But Paris needs to HANDLED..QUICKLY!

    • How is this any of your d**n business, and what right does you or any other sleaze ball have, to know who the real father is? Michael Jackson, was not related to you, and his family are under no obligation, to tell you, or anyone in this world, about things that are none of your d**n business. Instead of you spending your fruitless time, on matters that are of none of your d**n business, why don’t you use this time to become successful yourself, and get out of that ghetto mentality. I’ll bet you have a bunch of illegitimate kids, and are on welfare. Mind your own d**n business.

  6. Gladys Knight’s theory on how to handle this situation is so “South”! This is why the adult siblings are so “Screwed Up”! They handled this situation as a “Southerner” would; back biting, not disclosing the truth regarding MJ’s mothers condition when MJ’s children needed to know the truth, screaming the Will is not valid, (We hear you Randy, but you are wrong as usual), and the final unnecessary event, Mrs. Jackson temporarily losing conservatorship/guardianship…….That’s the way to go Gladys, southern all the way…Really? My family is from the south too, and this is the Adults fault, plain and simple. Don’t blame this on MJ’ kids. The adult children need to get their teeth knocked down their throats for lying to MJ’s kids in the first place, and ALL OF THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN AVIODED!

    • I SO totally agree. These kids have been thru h**l, and probrably will remain there for awhile. They witnessed their father dying a HORRIBLE death, and instead of the family coming together…they are bickering about Michael’s will. If Katheryn went to court asking to be their guardian…then it was wrong for her to jump ship and and disappear.This so much reminds me of the American woman who adopted the German child…only to change her mind and send him back home to be orphaned again. Children need stability, not stupidity. These kids are going to be scarred for the rest of their lives. Boy…it didn’t take long. Michael did not have a peaceful life because of the public hounding him. Now in death, his family has become his biggest enemy. Shame on JANET, RANDY, JERMAINE, and KATHRYN……

      • They must have been his enemy while he was alive because as we know at this moment, he did not leave his siblings any money, nor did he ask anyone of them to raise his kids. He asked Diana Ross, according the media reports, so if that is true, what does that tell you.

      • Are you aware that parents need alone time too??? Mother Katherine is in her 80′s so I’m sure she needed sometimes need personal time as well. Bottom line…none of us know what and why this bickering is going on!!! MJ himself distanced himself from certain family members because he felt they were using him as only some family members can do. So what makes you think that MJ’s death has put a stop to the leaching from family members. I personally think MJ kids are being used to line the pockets of some family members and Mother Katherine is being manipulated as well.

    • I agree that it appears the conflict began with Michael’s siblings interfering with the guardianship and sending a letter stating that the will is a fake after so many years. Are they broke or just wanting control? Are they taking advantage of Mrs. Jackson’s elderly age? Hmmm? I had already said that the siblings were in the process of taking over the guardianship of the children when they would not disclose the whereabouts of their mother. As she can see, they were busy taking control behind her back while she thought she was just taking time to relax or whatever the purpose of her trip to Arizona was in the first place. Mrs. Jackson thought she was just away for a short vacation and the children had their own agenda while she was away. So sneaky and manipulative! Makes me view the brothers and sisters in whole new light! There must be more to this whole situation that the public does not know at this time. What I do know is that no aunt has the right or privilege to slap her niece, biological or legal, black or white, or biracial, or whatever the race!!!

  7. I continue to wonder why is the entire world perpetrating this fraud that Michael Jackson fathered these children. Nevertheless, Paris is a teenager doing teenager stuff when their isn’t any solid discipline being put in place. We all know that it is a lot easier to get away with stuff Grandma’s than it is with anyone in the world. She will be apologizing soon, but will forever be under a super microscope no matter what she does. World, wake up, there isn’t any African American in any of these children, stop lying to them. It is ok that he adopted them or had someone else physically have them for him.

    • THIS IS NOT A FRAUD, THEY ARE LEGAL HEIRS AND I BELIEVE BIOLOGIAL HEIRS YOU NEED TO GET A LIFE AND PARIS NEEDS TO BE CHECKED AND QUICKLY. ALSO, THEY NEED A BACKUP GUARDIAN OTHER THAN MS. ROSS.

      • You wrote that ignorant shyt earlier and no one cared, why write it again? Those aren’t Blk,kids and never will be stupid. Do you honestly believe that they are going to grow up and say Im Black? Capital letters only emphasize your ignorance.

        • It’s none of your d**n business who the parents are. The only thing that matters is that Michael Jackson, claim them as his own. These kids are bi-racial, and if I was them, I wouldn’t want to be called black, because of stupid, ignorant a*s people such as you. I am black as could be, but I am ashamed of ignorant, bigoted people like you. I bet also, that you don’t know who the father of your bebe kids are.

    • He did father those children be it through adoption, surrogate etc. those are his children. Grow up people.

    • Having a very light skin tone does not make a person any less Black than someone who is black as tar. Being Black is not literally about having dark skin, it’s about your heritage and about what you identify as. Really it’s about the ethnic background of your parents.

      Just an FYI here, my siblings and I are all biracial and we “look” white. My older sister looks like a tall white girl with an afro she don’t even have hips, and when she straightens her hair she looks “white”. Paris has said repeatedly that she straightens her hair daily & if you look at the un-doctored pictures of her that other people take, she is noticeably darker. Now we are called coloured people for a reason, we come in all colours. I am a black native french mix, I look “white” like Paris, but I got hips as big as my “black” aunt & tan as mahogany as a natural native looks. So unless you know a ton of biracial people or if you are the only who determines how black a person can be before they are considered black I’d shut-up and educate myself. Look at the list of biracial children like myself, who “look white”:
      Wentworth Miller
      President Obama
      Naima from America’s Next Top Model
      Anthony Ervin
      Barbara Weathers
      Blake Griffin
      Blu Cantrell
      Carmen Ejogo
      Charli Baltimore
      Freddie Prinze Jr.
      Gina Belefonte
      Kimberley Locke
      Lori “Lolo” Jones
      Norah Jones
      Vin Diesel

      and the list goes on.

      • President Obama does not look white and I was surprised to find out he was bi-racial.

      • This has got to be the most stupid post on this website. If your sister has an Afro, then she cannot look white. Paris Jackson has wavy hair like millions of white people around the world. Millions of white people use chi irons to straighten their hair, even after blow drying it. This does not make them black.
        Wentworth Miller’s “black” father is the same color that he is. When Wentworth grows his hair, you can tell he is mixed. President Obama looks white? Are you insane? Carmen Ejogo? You are such an idiot. Let Vin Diesel grow out his very nappy hair, no one will ever say he is white. None of the people you posted look like white people. They all look mixed. Fool. Michael Jackson’s “children” look white because their father is a white man, he is the dermatologist. You only have to look at the children to see they both look very much like him, get your head out of you b**t and face reality.

  8. These people needd too heal. Paris should go somewhere and sit down and be a child. Who does she think she is. Janet is aunt. She is headed down the wrong road. Keep jerk fingers off of twitter. Right on Janet smack her a*s again.

    • Yes, Paris Jackson needs to be check. Don’t messy with Janet . I would turn that cell phone off . Paris seem too grown . Get her a*s in check! You were born in a black family. Maybe, granddaddy Joe needs to come in the picture.

      • Michael, bless his soul – left a mess.

      • The reason why Grandpa Joe wasn’t left any money … he beat Michael. They don’t have any right to tell her what to do. If they hit her, they should be locked up in jail. I am 61 years old from the South. Beating children did not help years ago and will not help now. The white master beat the black slaves. Did that make us better. If she has not been talk respect by now, Janet can not teach it to her. The beating Joe gave the children evidently didn’t help. Look at them now.

      • Haaaaaaaaaa! Too funny, yeah Joe would straighten that mouth out lol, too d**n funny, finally some humor, you know they could care less what we think!

  9. I think Ms Gladys has a LOT of GULL! I dated a member of HER family, and there was ALWAYS some s**t going on…ALWAYS . Stop calling the kettle black…..

    • Omg! First I would like to say I’m sure whatever is going on within the family or out MJ would NOT have wanted his daughter to behave in such a manner…Some ppl are saying they should/shouldn’t be disciplined ummm…honestly how many “famous” children have u heard of being “disciplined”? The parents try but once those kids know they have money they know they have the power sad but true,remember the kid that played in home alone DISRESPECTFUL,Miley Cyrus DISREPECTFUL, Chris Brown DISRESPECTFUL just to name a few but their are plenty more child turned adult stars that were disrespectful & somewhat still are…It’s nothing really to be done to MJ’s kids bc they know they are filthy rich & no matter how they behave the money is still theirs…AND all the Jackson children were DISCIPLINED MJ didn’t want his children raised that way bt I say look at them, all of Joe & Catherine’s children were successful in one way or another,they were set up right & MJ made it his life & mastered it.

  10. I totally agree with Ms. Knight. However, after I knocked her teeth out, I would have pulled out a can or two of whup a**e. Nothing is worse than a spoiled brat and if she is not checked, Paris is headed for major problems!!!

  11. Ms Gladys said that there is dysfunction in every family. Read it again. I concur with Ms. Gladys. And why are you putting Ms. Gladys personal stuff out there “Paris”!
    I always thought Paris was fake.

    • Maybe because Paris KNOWS that the pot should not be calling the kettle black….I have been around the KNIGHT famiy and know factually that they are over the top dysfunctional. With all of HER OWN personal issues, divorces , addictions etc, etc, ….she has a LOT of nerve. Yep…

      • All that you refer to has been bought to light a long time ago. Gladys put her business out there in her books and on tv interviews. Gladys said what most African american families are use to before the courts took parenting out the homes. I know for sure if I was fool enough to hit my mother she would of knocked my teeth out and after that my aunts an grandma will be in line waiting on their turn. There is a difference between an a*s whooping and abuse, Paris needs an a*s whooping.

      • that’s why she knows the real deal. experience is the best teacher and so are the people that possess the experience. who else could teach it to you?

    • Michael, bless his soul – HE eft a mess.

  12. WOW!! Say that again PRINZEZ!!!

  13. I’m so glad little Paris made that statement: “This is our house. Not the Jackson family house. Get the f*ck out!”

    It clearly demonstrates how lost modern day slaves are. In essence what she’s saying is that you negroes worked for 40 years to build this financial empire, and then manufactured you some non-black children in a test tube because you hated yourself so much, and then you turned the billion dollar empire over to us, and the lawyers.

    Now most of you are struggling to survive and now us manufactured “white” Jackson moguls are laughing at you fools.
    So get “the f**k” out of our house and stop begging us for a piece
    of this cash cow you SELF LOATHING WANNABEE FOOLS!

    Ha, ha, ha. And no, you can’t play with my hair anymore Janet.

    • Joia, you just gave me my first belly laugh of the day. So good. So true. thank you.

    • MRS. JACKSON ALLOWED DEBBIE ROWE INTERACTON WITH THE KIDS AND I AM SURE SHE IS INFLUENCING HER DAUGHTER. YOU ARE SO CORRECT IN WHAT YOU SAID. PARIS MAY KNOW SHE MAY NOT BE A JACKSON BY DNA BUT SHE IS KEEPING THE “MONEY” AND YOU SAW WHAT SHE TWEETED SHE’LL MAKE THEM PAY. WHITE GIRL OR 1/2.

    • Absolutely brilliant. Lmao. Rolling on the floor.

    • @Joia – you nailed it. Exactly what I was thinking.

    • JOIA-
      THANK YOU for having the guts to say what many won’t.
      People of color build so much, then complain because it’s handed down to non-colored people while sufferage continues. Yes, they’re MJ’s children, bio or not, but Michael himself stated self hatred and I’d wished he’d have children of mixed heritage like Josephine Baker (different skin colors) to NOT CONTRIBUTE TO THE STANDARD THINKING – THE LIGHTER THE SKIN, THE MORE THE WORTH. Darker children are just as valuable, teachable, lovable as lighter whiter ones. Michael was in pain. I HOPE SOMEONE checks Ms. Paris yesterday, and breaks it down to her that she DID NOT EARN what was given, and she is NOT any more precious than a ghetto child.

      Paris should learn the value of what she was given, charitable work, visit less fortunate routinely then maybe her shoulder-chip would vanish. Janet was correct although I don’t like violence but if she was cursed at, a slap in the mouth is just what Janet should’ve given her. The JACKSONS BUILT THAT HOUSE Paris. ALL 5 dancing brothers who taught & encouraged Michael to build his self esteem and craft to stardom. Michael didn’t do it alone. The brothers are entitled to be taken care of. I believe only a d**n FOOL thinks the Jackson 5 should suffer while Michaels ingrates (Paris) inherit ALL of Michaels earnings when the brothers built that empire together. I honor the Jackson 5′s talent. And it was not long ago Janet was on TV embracing Paris at Michaels funeral.

      Paris, get a life, be more respectful, GUARDIANS SHUT DOWN HER TWITTER ACCOUNT, and learn manners. It can ALL be taken away at any moment and should be given to someone more appreciative.

    • MY HEART GOES OUT TO MS KATHERINE, TO HAVE TO SPEND SO MUCH GRIEF AT THIS AGE FOR HER CHILDREN CONSUMED BY GREED. JUST SAD THAT SHE HAS TO SPEND HER SUNSET YEARS LIKE THIS. GOD HELP THEM ALL.

  14. Joia, you sound like self hatred yourself. You sound prretty d**n mad about something. Are you Paris’s pr person?! To agree with what Paris did, you are saying “Im ignorant just like Paris”!!!

  15. Whoop a*s, knocking teeth, disrespect wow! Why as blacks do we feel the only way to handle a situation is by putting our hands on our children. That is how the slave master’s handled us as a people and look where we are? To get respect one has to give it ( even to children) my dear adult’s. When we treat our children with love, respect, dignity and integrity then maybe we will be afforded the same courtesy. Until then this will be our reality.

    • I AM SURE IT IS JUST A FIGURE OF SPEECH … DON’T GET YOUR PANTIES IN A BUNCH. IN THIS DAY AND AGE CHILDREN ARE NOT DISCIPLINED ENOUGH.

      I BELIEVE PARIS HAS A CASE OF THE “BIG HEAD”. ALSO, THE ADULTS BEHAVED IN A “STUPID MANNER”.

      RANDY AND ESPECIALLY JERMAINE ARE RIDICULOUS AND NOW THEY HAVE DRAGGED IN JANET.

      MAYBE JANET WAS SUPPOSE TO BE THE VOICE OF REASON AND SHE GOT DISRESPECTED AND MAYBE SLAPPED.

  16. I totally agree with CB,,,,, Ms. Knight should check out what set this kid off before offing her with a fist down the throat..! The adults in this situation are off their rockers, not the kids..

  17. It my understanding the responsibility is with the kids grandmother to raise them. Janet has been the best role model. Paris may a bit spoiled and any behavior issues should be reported to Catherine. Too many people want to be in charge and most of the Jacksons are jealous because the kids will get all the money.

  18. God bless the Jackson family, everything will be alright.

  19. Sic Joe on her, that will straighten her out in a hurry

  20. Glady is right, however, I would not consider assault because of the laws TODAY, in the past yes.

    Paris is disrespectful, typical white, arrogrant, undisciplined, and definitely needs counseling from a black psy. No way could any child be allowed to call names of disrespect to any adult. The media, the talk shows should discontinue any communication to Paris, it is obvious she is camera ready. My concern is with Mrs. Jackson the mother of the group. The sibblings are broke with the exception of Janet, and should be barred temporarily from the family. Bishop Jakes, Bishop Noel Jones should provide some advice for the Jackson family. Michael carried his sibblings until his death, they must back off from Mrs. Jackson and the children.

    • LaVerne, Why is what the bible says “spare the rod, spoil the child”, is looked at, as abuse? Yes, some people take it out of context… but that is what is wrong with the kids today. Society says “you cannot correct your child”. I knew what my child needed and no official was going to tell me different!! They don’t know anything about the child except that the unruly child cried and said they got reprimanded. Wuptidoo. Parents need to take their rights back and parent. h**l, the law didnt pay the hospital bill, they don’t feed the child, don’t even know Jack or Jills favorite ice cream. They don’t care nothing about your child. Why is there a NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND? Because, the laws don’t help parents to right the children. What is against you, is not with you.

      • I whipped my daughter’s behind and she is fine today at 34 yrs young. This has nothing to do with Massa or Abuse.

        • Excited about Grad School!

          wrong, you taught her that violence is fine., That’s all you taught her which makes you a terrible parent and horrible person. People are so quick to talk about sparing some rod and spoiling a child but they intentionally leave out the part where the Bible also said “DO NOT tempt your child to anger!!!” But I guess people only obey what parts of the Bible they want to because they are God. I am just waiting on that to come from either you, or some other nut job.

    • If I am not mistaken, Janet called that child a b***h first. Seriously, what kind of Aunting is that. That girl is hurting, no father (deceased), no mother ( sold her for $8 million according to media) – all she has is her grandmother. h**l anyone would want to know where their grandmother was if they see them daily, then all of a sudden don’t see them for 5 days.

  21. I’m also with Gladys!!! Who does Paris think she is talking to Janet that way. I hope she get straighten out before she’s an adult. Because she will soon learn that it’s a mean world out there. And don’t care if she is Michael Jackson daughter. They’ll eat her up and spit her out like nothing.

  22. @Faith you are so correct. It makes me sick how the AA community promotes and celebrates opening a can of whoop b**t. It’s said and ignorant. It is not okay to leave the children you are responsible for, for 9 days without letting them know. Sadly even after the missing persons report she still didn’t call to reassure them. That’s just good parenting, to reassure your kids. A pic o her playing UNO wouldn’t have done it for me either. I’m glad Paris had an outlet. She and Janet have said it was not true about the slap and cussing. The police said the altercation was between two adult men.

  23. is funny every body is bashing this girl but no one knows whats going on

    • Not bashing her, because she is a child

      • Excited about Grad School!

        actually, people are bashing her and they are wrong. Gladys needs to sit her hypocritical self down and mind her own business and get outta there’s. Someone needs to knock out Gladys’ Teeth.

        • GOT THAT RIGHT – MAYBE SOMEONE SHOULD HAVE KNOCK HER TEETH OUT WHEN SHE WAS LOSING HER MONEY TO THE CASINOS. HOW ABOUT THAT.

  24. Glady Knight need to shut up and take care of her own issues and Lord and behold we can talk about her marriages etc. over the years. Paris Jackson was the King of and she’s stepping out like she thinks she should and whether or not you like it that’s life. The Jackson family always had issues from childhood and in house problems and by all means MJ didn’t leave them any money. These former Indiana folks from Gary is still in their blood. Glady go find yourself another so called speakers and or go back to Johnnie Coleman’s church when you are crying out for help in that of your ins and out of life style. By the way, if you did hit that girl Paris Jackson you would see yourself in jail. This kid is no dumb folks. Got to go!

    • Johnnie Coleman is dead and to soot in a seat and watch someone suffer in church then use it against them because they offered up an opinion is dumb. Carry your azz back to Johnnie Coleman’s old church and get a new clue

    • YOU SAID IT – PARIS IS NOT TO BE PLAYED WITH – YOU GO GIRL

  25. That’s the problem with people , LISTEN ….. Mrs Knight , whom I know personally , is as “Real” as they come… period !! She’s telling the TRUTH. we all have situations in OUR families , everybody from the OBAMA’s to the Hilton’s, to the Brown’s and Smiths .
    Society has lost it’s hold on the last few generations, Teens today have been allowed to say and do things without any repercussions from ELDERS… Things done today were’nt tolerated when we were kids,a lack of respect has been LOST from our kids today,Discipline has gone out the window , We as Parents are’nt allowed to touch our kids !! That’s the problem !!! and that’s what Mrs. Knight was saying , she’s from the old school where it’s un heard of to talk back to Elder’s

    And as far as CB goes , Don’t bring Mrs.G and her family down, YOU MIGHT WANNA TAKE A LOOK IN THE MIRROR…AIN’T THAT WHAT MICHAEL SAID

    AND ANOTHER THINK THAT MOST PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ! Mrs. “G” is close enough to that family to put her 2cents in , being that SHE was the one to discover and bring THE JACKSON 5 to MOTOWN not “DIANA ROSS”

    • WELL MAYBE GLADYS IS BANNED FROM THE HOUSE ALSO – HER JANET AND JERMAINE AND RANDY CAN LOOK IN THROUGH THE GATES lol IF GLADYS CAN STAY AWAY FROM THE CASINO LONG ENOUGH!

    • WELL MAYBE GLADYS IS BANNED FROM THE HOUSE ALSO – HER JANET AND JERMAINE AND RANDY CAN LOOK IN THROUGH THE GATES lol IF GLADYS CAN STAY AWAY FROM THE CASINO LONG ENOUGH!

  26. So its my guess that no one in this thread had any issue with Janet Jackson calling Paris a “spoiled b***h”? If anyone including my wife ever called my 14yr old daughter a b***h, they are going to have serious problem with me. I don’t know what my “child” could do to make me call her out her name like that. But Janet needs her b**t kicked for that as well.

  27. Janet Jackson was way out of line. You slap a young adult in the face…expect to get slapped back! All the remaining Jackson 5 folk…NEED 2 GET A JOB…I REPEAT….GET A JOB. Michael left his money to his children….not his siblings. Michael’s mother has shown by her recent actions (not letting the kids know her whereabouts, being out of communication with the children, etc) that she is not qualified to act as their guardian. If I were Paris, and was assaulted, yes I said assaulted,by an adult, I would have slapped the individual as well.

    Gladys Knight needs to mind her own business. Anytime you join a church (Mormon) that until recently would not allow African Americans to be members can’t tell me s**t

  28. Mooney44, I have a problem with Janet Jackson’s slapping Paris, if it is true. She is neither Paris’ mother nor her guardian, and slapping her is assault and child abuse. Calling the child a b**ch is verbal abuse. Janet entered a residence not her own and proceeded to order around a relative’s child. Are attorneys listening and watching? There are some videos of the altercation. Good for you, Paris; it is your home and your siblings’ home, and your Aunt Janet should have gotten the “truck” out.

  29. “she wouldn’t have any teeth in her mouth” was just an expression and is not to be taken literally. However, Ms Knight is an older and hopefully intelligent adult who should have chosen her words more carefully. Coming from the South is no excuse for her ignorant talk.

    Words have power. Younger children hear that kind of talk and take it literally. She was totally inappropriate. Paris is a young girl who needs to respect her elders. However, she did make a cogent point when, after being insulted by Janet who allegedly and inappropriately called her a “b***h” saying this is our home NOT the “Jackson Family Home. Indeed Paris is correct! Her father bought that home and all its belongings for his loving mother and his three beloved children, not his lazy brothers and family members.

    All of Michael’s adult brothers and sisters need to buy their own homes and support their own families. All this trauma and drama is very bad for the health of their wonderful aging mom, Katherine Jackson.

  30. I now realize just how ignorant and behind-the-times Gladys Knight and others who think like her are.

  31. Gladys Knight is awesome. Beautiful lady.

  32. Michael drugs use has his kids suffering from his abuse. The disrespect would of got Paris knocked into the middle of next month. I don’t believe this about money for Janet, Jermaine, Katherine, LaToya, Rebbie and Marlon. This generation is passing away. The bible says so. Those kids will be on drugs eventually.

  33. Speak Gladys! Paris needs to be put in a child’s place. Don’t be surprised if this smart mouthed, disrespectful kid is not dead by 25, due to self-harm or drug abuse.

  34. The biological aspect of the kids are irrelevant. Regardless of how they were “born”, they are under the guardianship of Michael for the growth of their lives until his death. Even then, they are still “his” only now under the authority of teh Grandmother. These growns as siblings of Mike’s need to get a grip on themselves. This is all about the money for them. Now as far as the grandkids,this is a differnt story. Most of the comments have been about wheether or not they are bilogical or “black”. Neigher has ANYTHING to do with respect, morals and integrity. Katherin’s dissapearance is also a mut point. She needed to get away, so be it. Yes, she should have made better araingements, but the disrespect of Paris or the other one has nothing to do with that. She is a CHILD and as a child you RESPECT your elders at all times, no matter whose house you are in. To blame Janet or Glady’s for Paris’s mouth is ignorant to those who claim to be parents. Sure there should have been some standards put in place early on, but as the saying goes, better late than never. I ket really tired of my brothers and sisters not looking at the whole picture for what it is. That only limits your ability to talk intelligently and makes you out to be fools yourself.

  35. First of all Paris has every right to be upset with these stupid money hungry Jackson’s …. They are a bunch of greedy liars who act like freakin kids themselves… Yea Paris shouldn’t have talked that way to her elders but when u come to her house and won’t let her talk to her own grandmother her guardian its ridiculous so Janet or whoever deserve what’s coming to them…. Why the h**l do you think Michael stayed away from his crazy a*s family and wrote them out of the will? Cause he knew they were like this ghetto money grubbin liars… Michael wasn’t stupid he knew to leave them with the only person he trusted his mother and that’s why they are trying to keep their mother away from the kids so they can get her to do what they want her to do contest the will…It’s all about money…period! Paris isn’t stupid she sees right through all of them just like her dad did…

  36. I’m a Michael Jackson fan. But I grew up in Harlem in the 70′s when drugs were everywhere. I saw the Nicky Barnes and Frank Matthews. They bossed people around with the threat that they would not have a job if they did not do what they were told. Michael has instilled that mine set in Paris and all his other kids. She’s not use to that. She needs to be dealt with.

    Janet is so right. She’s a spoiled little b****. And if she would just listen she would realize that Janet is doing that out of love! Get in touch with me Paris, I’ll help you see it.

  37. Do I detect a little reverse racial c**p going on here with talk about biracial and white kids. I think so.

  38. I bet a million dollars, the whole plot to this is that the executors and lawyers faked the will just to give Katherine custody knowing she will probably pass soon to take leadership over the estate. Remember Katherine had to beg for money to take care of the kids.

  39. Grandma has raised her children. I understand Michael wanted his children in the hands of a trusted member not his father. Children who have unlimited funds seem to get that superior profile. She is 14 those hormones are kicking in. You know how our cuties think they are grown at age 13. Wait until 16. This is just the beginning. Grandma needs a break. Grandma needs her life. Children need structure. Janet maybe should not have slapped her and called her a name, but when your mother is older and some young folks are causing her stress, somebody needs to step in immediately. I might have done more. This was the Jackson House BEFORE those kids were ever born. JANET’S home first.

  40. I really cant believe that it’s people out there who think that those are Michaels bioIogical kids. Besides that, this is silly just like the Jackson’s!

  41. I’m down with Gladys. First of all, what she said was a figure of speech–I don’t think that she literally meant that she would knock out all of Paris’ teeth. The point that I believe she was trying to make was that this 14-year old was out of control, and needed to be checked. Janet was right, Paris probably is a spoiled, little b—h, and she needs to learn how to respect her elders and not talk to them any kind of way. Maybe Janet shouldn’t have slapped her, but oh well, stuff happens. It is not the end of the world.

  42. It is amazing how people will waste time debating whether MJ fathered those kids. The fact is one way or another they are his and heir to his throne.Get Over it.This incident and family situation is an result of michael’s money. When he was in debt all things are quite now his estate has settled his debt and his estate has climbed to the billions now they are problems. For years we have known MJ and his family were at odds. His brothers were supported by his fame at a young age.Janet and Michael are the only success story.Jermaine Randy Tito are all broke and made they were not listed in his will. Now they are trying to get the kids and his money.Trent(Tito’s son) is their temporary guardian at the kids request.Katherine is stuck in the middle and being used.1hich is making her ill. Shame it has came out like this.but greed will do it you.

  43. Violence begets violence! Janet had no business slapping Paris her in the first place! When are we going to lose that slave mentality that we have to beat on our children to get them to understand. Children learn by examples of grown up behavior, love and spiritual upbringing, not by beating the h**l out of them.
    It is why we have so much trouble in the schools, children take this abuse with them wherever they go.
    Look at that 9 year old in (SC?)abusing those babies in the Kiddy Center! He did learn that on his own, h had to see that being done and a lot of it being done too. My parents did not do that to us, we were taught to avoid trouble, if the air didn’t feel right we did not get involved.
    VIOLENCE BEGETS VIOLENCE!

  44. Paris needs some strong discipline. Janet should have gotten one of those wide belts she wears and landed it across Paris’ b**t. Janet is trying to prevent this little undiscipline brat from going through what she and her brother Michael went through. Janet next time be prepared to whip that b**t!!

    • Excited about Grad School!

      and the same thing she does to Paris needs to be done to her so she can see how angry that makes a person. Don’t use violence to get your point across. The only this will do is drive an even bigger wedge between that kid and her aunt. Janet is not a role model to emulate, and she has no right to touch a child that’s not her’s. These children need their own attorney and court appointed guardian to keep these idiots away from them.

  45. Pingback: Paris v Janet: White People are Such a Problem. No matter the Age. « Cree7's Blog

  46. I think we are missing the point. How many of you would leave your kids unattended for days and not speak with them. These poor kids were wanting to speak with their grandmother and for some reason could not. Their grandmother should have told them she was going to be away for a few days and had someone she could trust come and stay with them why she was away. I think there is more to the story than what we are hearing.

    • There is a lot more that we don’t know and probably won’t know, so there is not point to any of this.

  47. If what Ms. Knight is quoted as saying is correct, she thinks it is ok to slap a child, but, not for the child to defend herself.

    How sad that violence was used by anyone.

  48. Excited about Grad School!

    The way I see it, both of them are wrong. Slapping children is abuse, but Paris should not have hit her back because that was an adult and you do not hit adults. I do not care how wrong that adult is, you do not hit them back. She should have just cut her aunt off and distanced herself from her and never spoke to her again, is what Paris should have done. I also don’t like the way these children are being put under a microscope like this. This is why Michael kept these children away from people and I do not blame him. As long as he was alive, they were protected, now they have to contend with people and the public. smh……..

  49. Poor Mike, he can sing, that is true, but he was totally disfunctional in his choices. What a chaotic legacy to leave behind. What a mess and a public spectical. Mike wanted to be a european and he got his wish even if it killed him. After the song is sung and the curtain falls the question remains what type of person was Mike. I saw Mike in person and he looked a little more than a robot, totally manufactured. Now we have these three children. What’s next? What price do you pay for stardom? How much soul do you sell?

  50. Why is this becoming a discussion about whether or not these children are Michael’s or not? And who are we, any of us who are reading and responding to this article, to tell the Jackson family how they should handle their family issues? First of all, it is nobody’s business but theirs. Unfortunately, intrusive shows like TMZ have decided to make the personal and private affairs of others fair game. I pray that the family that gave us so much as entertainers will resolve their issues outside the purview of the media, just as all of us choose to handle our own family issues. This family, especially the mother has gone through enough in the public eye. Let’s take the spotlight and the cameras off them, and allow them what we would want for ourselves; some privacy. Let’s lift them all in prayer and leave them alone.

  51. The lady does not even know the whole story of what is going on between the uncles/aunts and the children of Michael Jackson. If she were to tweet out that she was being abused, would Gladys still threaten to knock out her teeth? Everyone needs to take a breath and wait and see what develops. It seems that Paris’s brother has some damning evidence against the Jackson clan, or at least Janet who does not need the bad publicity that this story is attracting.Who stays out of communication of the children they care for for 10 days even if they are stressed. Sounds like child neglect to me. Just saying.

  52. Glady Knight is my girl but she should have stayed out of this mess. Paris Jackson was in her home her Uncles and Aunt illegally tried to force them to leave with them. she has every right to say no. It’s the adults that should be ashamed and not the child. As for the people who think they know the paternity of the children. If Michael says they are his then their his. Adults should not make such ignorant comments about children. The one’s who have so much to say probably don’t know their fathers.

    • thank you for having some sense – you are absolutely right and Gladys should worry about staying out of the casinos – Is that southern enough for her!

  53. What does it matter what race she is…she is adopted and so therefore she is a Jackson…PERIOD…It does not matter Black, White, Red, Yello Green or Blue…she is Michael’s daughter and although she does have the Big Head and spilling her guts to the world she will one day learn from her mistakes. She is immature and rightfully so based on her age.

  54. Sorry, but Gladys sounds like an ignorant country c**n talking that mess. I’d give her a fat lip, but I’m too late. She should STFU and mind her OWN business.

  55. Back in the day of Gladis Knight if a child had done what Paris did she would be missing some teeth. Those were the days we were taught to respect your elders and only talk when spoke to. The parents that had stick rules had less chances of their child making the 6 O’clock news. We need to put some ot those rules back in place and maybe we wouldn’t have to look at young men with their undies showing and walking bow legged to keep them from falling down. If only they knew their history of the men/women of color.

  56. I think Janet did the right thing in not going off on her. It takes a lot of restraint not to beat a kid down these days, I mean the stuff they say to adults. The good thing is, that little girl is garranteed to say the right thing to the right person and will get what she deserves.

    • YOU DO REALIZE THIS GIRL IS WORTH MILLIONS – NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE GOING TO ATTACK HER – WAIT AND SEE. JANET SHOWED ENOUGH RESTRANT TO GET HER DUMB b**t BARRED FROM THE HOUSE .

  57. I know that’s right… She would have to show some Respect to all the people in her family… Bottom Line!!!

  58. Joia put it perfectly. This is a case of Michael Jackson’s self loathing legacy left here to taunt his family and beyond. He was a self indulgent immature speciman who noone could reach. When we believe ourselves beyond reproach, we are headed for quick demise one way or the other. Now, Michael’s “children” such as they are, will inherit the black man’s money and stream it back into the white race because a black man hated himself and his people. WHile it is sad that the brothers did not have enough sense to save their money and invest wisely, they deserve a little of this dynasty of Michael’s because they were part of its inception. I say pay them a few million to go away and then try to find a healthy guardian for these kids. Ms Katherine is way too fragile and likely her mind is leaving. Who disappears and leaves minors with no notification of where you are………? God bless this sad, sick family….

  59. If I slapped my 15 year old niece and called her a spoiled b*&ch, my sister would press charges against me for assault. Poor Paris doesn’t have a mother or anyone to defend her against her greedy, bullying family members like Janet. She needs a court appointed guardian to protect her from those grasping, physically abusive relatives now that her grandmother has disappeared.

    • Carol, I thank you for your comment. I am old school about some things, but the beating or physically violence by parent, aunts, uncles , or any grown ups toward children is not godly. I feel for Paris and her siblings. The beatings did not help the Jackson children. They should have been prepared for life when the fortune and fame ended.
      Michael did not keep in contact with them. I hope they remember that their father (Michael) was beaten and it was not looked upon as Love, but hate. The children need someone who will stand up to the Jackson family members that seek to do any type of harm to those children.

    • i agree 100%

  60. violence begets jailtime

    The way Michael was raising his kids, Paris probably never got hit before. His(or the nanny’s)more modern system: If you want the children to go to college, you make it clear from day one what behavior you want to see repeated and then reward that behavior with nurturing, snacks, toys or priveledges for doing that desirable behavior. If you don’t care where the kids wind up, let them run wild so they choose whatever behavior they want to do. Since there are thousands of bad behaviors to choose from and they are only children, they will make alot of bad choices. You get to punish the bad choices with verbal or physical abuse (and expect respect???). From this chaotic childhood kids learn that violence is acceptable(the whip (or guns)), their primary caregiver is a threat to their well-being(massa (or the street)), and the world is an unpredictable place where they have no control over their ability to be rewarded or punished(auction (or jail)).

  61. Daniela is correct. Gladys represents that ignorant mentality that so many black parents have: the use of violence towards their children as a means of discipline. Since when does Janet have the right to slap someone else’s kid? She doesn’t have kids of her own (thank goodness), and all of the sudden she has motherly skills? I don’t think so. I applaud Paris for slapping her back. What a effed up family they are. Now his no talent brothers want in on his will refusing to believe he cut them out of his will. If it was his wishes that only his children and mother be included in his will, who has the right to dispute that? All of his siblings are trying to get some of Michael’s money in their pockets. This is disgraceful behavior, and it’s no wonder he cut them out twice already.

    • Excited about Grad School!

      Actually she has one child but she didn’t raise that child and has never done anything for her. Reebie raised that little girl.

    • i thought that blacks have come further than this – beating up on kids really? That is what we are advocation in 2012. No one sees 3 adult screaming at 2 kids – Paris tweet till the sun comes down the jacksons need to be exposed.

      Telling kids to hide abusive situations is just plain sick.

  62. The issue is that Paris is 14 years old, spoiled and thinks she is an adult. She needs her b**t whipped and punished. If someone had done that already, the little heifer would not be cussing out her aunt. What is the world coming to these days that 14 year olds decide what the deal is? Gladys was right. Paris needs a back-handed lick. And many people on this website know what I mean. Shameful and disrespectful.

  63. You are right Gladys…Janet should have slapped her again. She is a child and children need to know their place. Paris obviously does not. She is way to grown and out of control. Get her in check now or you are going to have an even bigger mess if she is allowed to behave in this fashion.

    • Excited about Grad School!

      So, if you were an adult, and someone slapped you in your identity and called you a b***h, then you would call the police to press charges wouldn’t you????? exactly, so why would you do this to a child??? I pray you do not have any and if you do, that they dis-own you for that terrible remark. Your name should be entered into a warning pool of potential child abusers

  64. I feel sorry for Michael, he wanted to be white so bad that he paid a white woman and a white man to get her pregnant and give the white kids to him. it is obvious from the one with the dark hair and eyes, that the white woman got inseminated by a different variety of men: white, phillipino, etc etc. michael didn’t want to produce any BLACK

  65.

HE HATED BEING BLACK. that’s why he painted himself with the whitest skin on earth and red lips to match it. he looked more like Snow White than she did.

    • Mariam Whitelle

      Twanda, please be fair. Michael’s problem has nothing to do with hating being Black. Have you ever seen anyone who has the horrible disease that causes pigmentation to be lost. It is a sorrowful difficult sight that the person nor the frequent onlookers want to have to witness. Dermatologists recommend that the treatment of choice (best way) to counteract this disease (Vitaligo, I or something similar)is to remove the pigmentation from the skin so that it is all one color. That is what he chose to do. Now that is in reference to the skin problem only. He just made a horrible mistake with the nose and chin surgeries; but many people have this and even more done without reprisals from the world. Please give Michael’s memory the respect it deserves. The rest of his cosmetic choices may be unfortunate, but one must consider that it was in response largely to a disease that he had no control over. Research this disease and see how it devastates the recipient. They deserve our empathy as well as sympathy. Think about it.

  66. Mariam Whitelle

    Ms. Knight is only speaking from her own frame of reference that so many of us shared, including myself. I understand since I am obviously from her era and from the South. She is saying how things would have occurred if she were involved with her own children and any others in her care at the time. I do not disagree with her. It is certainly what I would have felt like doing whether I actually did it or not. Yet there are many more things to be considered here.

    Many of us have that same mentality, and I still would subscribe to it today, so to speak — even though she, nor I, nor most folk would have ever thought to take those words literally. What you do is train up a child to “THINK” you would really do it, and that should be enough to put him or her on the right path — if they were properly TRAINED from youth and know what it really means, they are most likely to act accordingly. Although I have rarely ever physically punished children, I control them with my voice and tone. They get the idea and straighten up. I support reasonable discipline of children — as opposed to real physical abuse — and would never interfere when someone is attempting to discipline a child — for the most part. (Only when people loudly use curse words to young children would I want to intervene and suggest that another method might be used more appropriately.) Because I realize that a parent who is disciplining a child is trying to prevent that child from leading a life of regret in the future; trying to prevent that child from becoming a threat to society that might eventually involve you or your family in terror or harm.

    Those people who do not understand normal corrective physical punishment as a form of discipline in a child usually have not considered the following circumstances: (1) corporal punishment must be juxtaposed with other loving behavior from you that the child understands and has experienced over time; (2) such punishment must begin at an early age so that the ground rules are understood by the child; (3) the child is trained that parents in good faith are looking out for the child’s own good — whether the child believes that or not, he or she is usually accepting of the concept as valid; (4) good parents and adults deserve respectful behavior; and (5) my own rule I learned late in life: There is usually a way one can find to express your own opinion without sounding disrespectful to the adult involved. (6) Conversation with the child before or after the discipline as to the rationale and that the child is still loved eases the pain and makes the rationale understood (offered from experience). Under no circumstances is prolonged, abusive behavior acceptable. Just enough to get the message across seems best to fit into the concept that to “spare the rod, spoils the child.”

    Having been a recipient of corporal punishment that sometimes advanced to the abusive, I personally understand the difference. Because of the prior positive family experiences and conversations, I was aware of when these were deserving, when they were not, when they were acceptable and when they crossed the line. Yet I always knew that they were inflicted for my own self-development. They did not cause me to hate my parents, nor did they prompt me to even think of any retaliation. [I admit once I automatically retaliated with an aunt myself once as a teenager; but it was because the blow was so unexpected, unwarranted, and I immediately apologized because I really did not mean to do it.] Most aunts could inflict the same punishment, which they did, as we were told could any respected adult my family knew in the community, though that never happened. But from that perspective, we knew we were to respect all adults to the best of our ability, even though we might be able to discuss it (particularly with my mother or another aunt who helped raise me) at a later time. That helped a lot.

    Even though I seemed to try to emulate my aunts in their vocal discipline (only) with my nieces and nephews, they know I am willing to discuss anything, have their best interest at heart, love them very much and they lovingly still hold me in respect even to this day. I never had to use a “rod” (my hand)with them (only once with my nephew when he was about four), they knew from my voice what to expect and complied. I took time with them doing adventurous learning experience with them frequently, so we had many fun times together as well. As adults I still feel the love from them even to this day. This is from an advocate for applying the “rod” sparingly but meaningfully as a young child, and you will not have to use it as children grow older.

    I sympathize with Mrs. Katherine Jackson and her teenage grandchildren. She has raised many successfully, and if given the opportunity away from all this public input, she can still do so even at this older age. We have seen it time and time again in our communities every day. If the public will just “but out” and allow the family to resolve this, it can happen. Something went wrong when they did not know where she was, but Paris should have kept that information within the family. She only made things worse. In addition, the children’s aunts and uncles have every right to help their mother in the raising of their brother’s children. It does take a village to raise a child, which is a true African proverb by which Black families are used to functioning. And it is not always about “money.” Some few may have ulterior motives, but you cannot classify them all like that and be truthful. What they have uncovered about Michael’s estate is probably justified. Time will tell. Let’s all help give this family time to heal.

    • Well said. I couldn’t find a better expression of the truth. Thank you Ms Whitell for putting it in perspective so well.

  67. The reality is that Michael Jackson created this mess by leaving his fortune to these non blood artificially created adopted white children. Michael had such contempt for his race that he rather leave his fortune and control of his legacy to white people than his black family. This situation will only get worst as these white arrogant children get older. You never hear about whites who adopt black children willing ALL of their fortune and control to their non white children in the event that they die.

  68. I somewhat agree but looks at the example she has to follow….Janet slapped her first and called her a spoiled little bish. Seriously?! I understand that u have to respect your elders because I was raised by my grandma who is from a small town in GA. She didn’t play the radio, and still doesn’t. I got popped on many occasions but I was never called a bish no matter how I acted. If Janet or any other adult wants to be respected as “elders” then they should act it. Simply being older isn’t enough.

  69. Someone really needs to take that cell phone away from Paris, or at least limit her time on it. No 14 yr old should be up all hours of the nite tweeting or texting, but they will if they can get away with it. Although she abbreviates a lot of her words like “effing” etc. Her language is not cute. She’s 14 for crying out loud. Someone better get a grip on this 14 yr old with entitlement issues before she ends up way out of control. She seems to have no boundaries and thinks she can do what ever she wants without consequences. I feel bad she lost her dad, but he wouldn’t be too happy with her if he saw the things she was doing or saying these days.

  70. Janet why didnt you slap the s**t out of that white helfa? Well that is what happen when you dont discipline your kids. Especially white kids, they think they can get away with anything, murder.. To be honest, they most of the time do.. Teach that brat Paris some manners before someone on the street does.

  71. The odds of all three of genetic offspring of Michael Jackson being as light-skinned as those three are, conservatively, 1 in 4000. And that is assuming that Michael Jackson only had half of 12 genes that combine to cause the darkness of hue of a person’s skin. The odds of even one of them being that light-skinned is about 1 in 16.

  72. WE ALL KNOW THAT THE KIDS ARE NOT BIOLOGICALLY MICHAEL’S, HOWEVER OUT OF RESPECT , THE KIDS ARE HIS CHILDREN WHOM HE HAS RAISED AS HIS OWN….BUT IF THIS IS TRUE ABOUT HER “BACK TALK” LIKE THAT TO HER AUNT JANET, THEN THIS CHILD IS CLEARLY OUT OF TOUCH WITH REALITY OF WHO THE ADULT IS…I MEAN NOW A DAYS, FOLK ARE EITHER ABUSING THEIR CHILDREN HORRIBLY OR LETTING THEIR CHILD KICK THEIR a*s(SPOILED ROTTEN)….BUT THUS BEING SAID THERE SHOULD BE
    (SOME) GROUND OF DICIPLINE TO THE CHILD AS OF WHO THE ADULT IS…KIDS TODAY ARE FAR OUT OF CONTROL, I DON’T BELIEVE IN BEATING A CHILD OR “OLD SCHOOL” a*s KICKINGS AS ONE WOULD SAY: BACK IN THE DAY YOU TALK TO A MOM (BLACK WOMEN) LIKE THAT, f**k AROUND AND GET YOUR NECK BROKE!!!!..LMAO ……..

    • you people sound silly – janet or those brothers who ONLY WANT MONEY AGAIN THESE PEOPLE ARE AFTER MONEY – THEY DESERVE NOTHING THEY DID NOT WORK FOR IT AND IT WASNT GIVIN TO THEM – mj COULD HAVE LEFT THE MONEY TO A MONKEY IT IS HIS MONEY TO DO WITH AS HE PLEASES. JANET HAD NO RIGHT TO BE THERE AND OH YEAH GUESS WHAT YOU DON’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT HER GETTING RESPECT – SHE GOT SO MUCH RESPECT SHE IS NOT ALLOWED ON THE PROPERTY ANYMORE. NOW THAT RESPECT FOR YOU A$$

  73. Please Janet tell us that you beat that young lady like she was a women in the Street. If she think she is who they say she is have a DNA and than she will know who the real Jackson’s Is

    First of all, these ARE NOT Michael Jackson’s biological children. What annoys me most of all is when I hear entertainment reporters ponder whether one of them has inherited his talent for this or that. How can they inherit anything other than his cash when they don’t share his DNA. We need to stop living in collective denial and political correctness. Michael Jackson was a brownskin (night light-skinned) black man who bleached his skin (for whatever reason) and apparently had no interest in being black until he started having problems with the law and record companies. He re-co-opted being black because it provided him with a narrative and a basis for the treatment he felt he was receiving. And now we have 3 white children walking around bearing his name and claiming his legacy. What a crock. You call can like it and celebrate it all you want. I choose to see it for what it is.

  75. I disagree with ya’ll. I have a nephew who is Afican and white. If you saw him you would think he is white, so I truly believe that the kids belong to Micheal. As for Paris being disrespectful she would have gotten her behind whipped. My mom taught us to repect our elders no matter what race they were. If I would have said what she said I would be getting off the ground with a b****y lip. That is what is wroung with kids today, the teachers teach them to call 911 if they get a whipping. I have been to the schools and seen stuff you wouldn’t believe. Young adults threating the teachers, or either cussing them out. Kids now days growup to fast. I ask tje parents and grandparents to go to the school without letting your kids your coming and then you would see how they act. Then you probably knock the door done and beat the c**p out of your child in front of there friends. Mrs. Katherine is trying to do her best to raise them. If Micheal would have lived none of this would be happening. All I can say is that it’s all about money. I think that is why Micheal was so depress. His family all ways wanted money from him. Know that he has passed away they are making money off of him. So they need to get on with there lives and leave Mrs, Katherine and TJ to raise them.

  76. Patrizia Messori

    I’m a proud mom of three teenagers. I believe it’s not so easy to be in Paris shoes… I raised my children, teaching them the respect for the elderly and the important values ​​of tolerance and respect for diversity, for animals and for different races. My sons are repelled for EVERY form of racism and abuse. I do not think that calling a girl “b***h” is a civil method to educate her, in fact I think it’s a great sign of disrespect: I firmly believe in mutual respect.
    A good educator is always coherent; the most valuable way to teach values to the children is to be, us first, an example of what we teach them. And Janet has not been a good example with Paris. In fact, I think she has behaved in a shameful way. If I call a girl “b***h” I would be first of all a bad educator, and secondly, I’d be an adult who can not give any good example.
    Furthermore, Janet showed little respect for the feelings of his deceased brother, assaulting that way his beloved daughter.
    Then there is the aggravating circumstance that Janet has proved more interested in the problem of money, rather than the feelings for his brother. I remind you that Michael has always supported and loved Janet, in spite of the usual squabbles that always exist between brothers.
    Michael had given his siblings a roof over their heads and picked up the expenses for the entire family. As for Michael’s other siblings, let us remember that Janet asked Michael if she could borrow his signature military style and dance for her breakout album and he gave her his full approval and support.
    Michael wrote and produced his sister Rebbie’s one hit single, “Centipede.” He also sang background vocals on this recording. Finally, let’s remember that Michael supported LaToya’s career as well including casting her in two of his short films, “The Way You Make Me Feel” and “Say, Say, Say.”
    In return they all have always behaved like real back stabbers, excluded Marlon. I really believe this is a terrible shame.
    Michael remained more than 70 days in the refrigerator of a morgue, before being buried, because the sweet Janet, first wanted her money back. Was she so poor?
    Only a word: SHAME!
    I apologize for involountary mistakes of translation
