Jackson Family Drama Never Stops, Paris Slams Her Uncle Randy
Michael Jackson has been gone for three years, but his fractured family continues to squabble over any and everything. The latest Jackson to go to war with a relative is the superstar’s daughter Paris, who slammed her uncle, Randy Jackson, for lying.
It all started with a letter that was allegedly leaked to the Internet claiming that Jackson siblings Randy, Jermaine, Janet, Tito and Rebbie demanded the resignation of John Branca and John McClain as executors of the Michael Jackson Estate. The controversial part of the letter is the family’s statement that the pair took advantage of them, driving mama Katherine to a “mini-stroke.”
It was this last accusation that sent 14-year-old Paris over the edge. In a series of angry tweets, the teen wrote, “i am going to clarify right now that what has been said about my grandmother is a rumor and nothing has happened , she is completely fine.
“I’d like to know who made up the rumor… i will defend my beloved family member with all i have , even if it means from other family members.”
A later tweet was directed at Randy Jackson, this one saying, “@randyjackson8 hello dear FAMILY member i don’t appreciate you telling everyone things that aren’t true thank you very much.”
At a suggestion Paris should show respect for her uncle, she shot back, “Maybe he should have respect for his mother.”
Paris later deleted all the tweets, but the damage was already done.
That’s not the only drama for the Jackson clan, as US Weekly has reported that Janet Jackson is “furious” about her niece Paris being cast in the upcoming film, “Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys.” It seems that Janet “feels it goes against Michael’s wishes to keep his kids out of the the limelight until age 18.”
Back in May, Janet told Prevention Magazine, “We’ve spoken about the fact that you’re only a child once. I think there’s a time for everything, and now is not the time [to act in films]. I told her I thought she should enjoy being a kid, possibly go to college—or not—but wait till she turns 18. She’s a very tough, smart girl. But it’s a cutthroat industry. I wouldn’t want my child to do it.”
Good luck trying to keep Paris out of showbiz, Janet—you’re going to need it!
