There are people who feel that the Jacksons are in it for the money and others, like myself, believe that this more about what was stated in the letter and less about the Jacksons wanting money. There is no evidence that proves that any of the living Jackson siblings want Michael's money. The media and the Michael Jackson Estate are spinning the story to make it look as though that is the case and using Michael's children, Prince and Paris, to "prove" their "point" that the Jacksons want Michael's stake in the invalid will. This entry will break down the situation and why I feel it is never a good idea to believe anything coming from the corrupt, evil and manipulative media.
Janet and Paris' "beef"
Janet on GMA in 2011.
Janet Jackson knows full well the dangers of getting involved in show business at too early an age, and according to UsMagazine.com, she "furious" that Paris Jackson, the 14-year-old daughter of her late brother Michael, has accepted a part in the upcoming movie "Lundon's Bridge and the Three Keys."
"She feels it goes against Michael's wishes to keep his kids out of the the limelight until age 18," a source told Us, adding, "Janet thinks Paris shouldenjoy being a kid and possibly go to college."
Paris, meanwhile, seems keen on following in her father's footsteps. She's "hoping for more roles," the insider said, explaining that it's become "a huge dispute" in the family.
The Jacksons, of course, are no strangers to "huge disputes," but when Janet says, "You're only a child once," she's speaking from experience. Maybe young Paris should listen to what her aunty has to say.
I doubt that the media is rehashing old articles and creating a story out of it. I feel that this could be an ongoing battle between the two relatives. It became real insane this week when the video seen around the world started all kinds of messes. I do not believe there is any feud or "beef" between them. I feel that a teenage girl that probably always got her way wants to always have her way and no one will ever do anything about it. Janet was not going to sit there and let her niece get into a business in a young age after what she saw what happened to her and others and saw what the business did to her brother. Michael's wish was that his children are not expose and if Janet did not put her foot down in regards to the acting career, then what good is she of an aunt who is concern for the well being of her niece?
I saw the video while I was watching Good Morning America and when I was getting ready for work on Tuesday morning. The media, of course, made a big deal over nothing stating that there was a fight between Randy and Janet vs. their niece and nephew, Prince and Paris. You can watch the video for yourself -
Marlon Crying on the show the Insider
During that same day, or around that time period, Marlon, Tito and Jackie were on the tabloid show the Insider talking about the drama. Marlon starts to cry when he talks about his mother. I am watching the video and I do feel for him however, he was acting as if he did not know where his mother was at. Here is the video -
Marlon states that -
"When asked about the current whereabouts of his mother, Marlon Jackson said recent explanations about her reported disappearance are "not good enough for me." Last weekend, a relative reported that Katherine Jackson was missing and was cut off from contact with Michael's children. Authorities eventually made contact with Katherine, who was staying with family members in Arizona, and they verified that she was safe."All I know is there's somebody who made the decision that my mother cannot talk to me, and whoever that person is, they've got to answer to me," Marlon told Kevin, without specifying individuals involved. "Because I'm going to see my mother and I'm going to bring her home."
He was very upset and that is understandable however, according to Randy, I believe, he stated that everyone in the family knew that Katherine was going to be in Arizona with Rebbie to get some rest. It was stated, in the twitlonger reply that Jermaine made that, by doctor's orders, Katherine could not use the phone. So the point of Marlon's dramatics were..... Then his tweets -
"I completely retract my signature from the July 17th letter sent to the Executors of my brother's Michael's estate and repudiate all the claims made against them. I don't want any part of that letter whatsoever," the second-oldest Jackson brother said in a statement released by a rep for the estate.Interesting. Not only Tito backed out of the letter, but he did not want to be a part of anything dealing with the letter. And wait, get this, a representative from the Estate released the statement! LOL. Wow, so Tito does not care what happened to his brother? He does not care that those people in that Estate had something to do with Michael's murder? Does he not care that the Estate could have killed his own mother?! Come on, dude. Come on. However, I guess he, Jackie's and Marlon's friendship with John McClain was more important than their own beloved brother. Damn, that is cruel.
T.J. Jackson Gets Temporary Custody of Michael Jr., Paris and Blanket
I like T.J. but he was there because he was supposed to take care of the children while Katherine was away. He knew that, the children knew it, everyone in the family knew that. Heck, read what Randy had to state about that -
"T.J.'s lawyer told the judge Wednesday his client believed Katherine might have been talking in some kind of code because others were listening."What?! Dude, you knew where your grandmother was at and you knew that she was around family relaxing and getting her health in order. You knew that you had to watch over the children until she gets back. He knew all of this and yet still did what he did because he chooses to be misguided. This fool, (yes, I called him that, he is not God to me.) disrespected his Grandmother's order all because she sounded like she was "talking in code". What CODE?! Get out of her with that mess! T.J. was implying all kinds of things in court the day he was awarded temporary custody of the children. It seems like this is not the first time that T.J. has made misguided decisions. When he was a teenager, according to this article,
he was the boyfriend to a teenage Kim Kardashian back in the 1990s. I know, I know. He was misguided then and still misguided today. News broke that T.J. will share guardianship with Katherine.
Michael's Groupies Have No Say.
"Hello, dear family member. I don't appreciate you telling everyone things that aren't true, thank you very much."She since deleted the tweet and then tweeted this to her uncle -
"The family source adds, "Paris has confided in her cousins that Trent and a security member have been "putting her up to Tweeting out messages against the family."Even though Paris did make the tweets, she is almost forced to make tweets to trash her family. So, if that is the case, then why do that? Why throw shade at her own family? Why disrespect her aunt by stating things like she was jealous of her? Well, maybe this could be the reason -
"Paris is trying to get out of going to summer school and without her grandmother there, she's succeeding. She's extremely manipulative and just wants to stay home and have fun. And at only 15, Prince is trying to get his girlfriend to come stay at the house. With Trent overseeing the children, it's complete chaos and they have no boundaries."
Call me silly, but I believe that this is true. I have no doubt in my mind that this is the reason behind the weird tweets from both children. Prince does have a girlfriend and in an article that People magazine did on the Jackson children, it was stated that,
“Girls really like him and he likes girls,” reveals the insider, adding that Katherine wasn’t “too happy” when he had a girlfriend earlier this year. Grandma has the final say, but Prince “is strong-minded,” says the insider. “He takes the floor in full control like his father.”
So, if Katherine was there, Prince probably would not be able to bring his girlfriend over to "hang out". Awww, well that is just too bad. As for Paris, she was filming that movie that she is doing and had to miss some days of school. In order for her to catch up on her studies, she has to go to summer school. Paris made it clear to Ellen earlier this year that she did not like school. Imagine if Michael were alive to hear her say that foolish statement. He would have become Joe Jackson that day. It does not surprise me that if Katherine were to be there and would have seen the foolishness, she would have had a fit.
Since the both of them did not want anyone to disrupt their "fun", they made it clear how they felt on twitter. I do not believe they lost it on twitter because of the family's issues with the Estate. The issues with the Estate and Katherine taking a break are two different things and the media does not separate those two things. I also think that regardless of what Katherine would have done if she were to see the foolishness these two were up to, the children would still want her to return. The issue is that it was established that Katherine, according to this article,
"X17 also reported exclusively that Michael's mom did let the children know she was leaving town, contrary to various online reports who claim she disappeared."and the children knew that she was out of town. That is why T.J. was in charged of taking care of them while she was away. It is that other people were not aware that Katherine was gone, and the other people that I am referring to are Trent, Howard Mann the Estate executors and the people hired by the Estate to help Katherine. I believe that Randy, Jermaine, Janet and Rebbie wanted to keep those people in the dark so that they can protect their mother from those people. Katherine, like the letter stated so well, had a health scare and for a woman in her age, the last thing she needs is a health scare. The Jacksons could not bare losing another beloved family member so they had to take her away with Rebbie to get her better. When the people who were in the dark could not find Katherine, they lost it and forced Prince and Paris to make insane tweets. The whole scenario does not have to make 100% sense. That does not mean that it did not happen.
My opinions about Prince and Paris behavior in regards to their tweets against their family will be honest. I am not here to be fans of offspring of musicians or entertainers that I love. I will always care about Michael's children and the whole Jackson family. I have nothing but respect for this family. However, there has to be an understanding here: a 14 year old child, and she is a CHILD, have no reason to ever trash her elders. Her aunt and uncle are her ELDERS. They are not her peers. They are the younger siblings to her father. They are not in the same level as she and will never be. Singing legend Gladys Knight, who is good friends with the family, stated this quote about what she would do if Paris was her child,
"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."My point exactly. I was even more disturbed to see the crazy MJ fan online community encouraging Paris to continue with the tweets that trash her family. Paris even went as far as disowning herself as a Jackson and calling the #MJFam on twitter her "family". Is it really that deep, Paris? No, it is not. Paris was probably always like that and her father took it like a pro. Let that be me, it would be a war. I am just saying. Prince made a twitlonger reply when his Grandmother returned home from Arizona. From the looks of the tweet, it looks off to me -
"The thing my brother tweeted last night was the last true thing he tweeted," Paris tweeted on Thursday. "He was hacked saying what we tweeted was false ... 'If you continue with your lies , I will continue with the truth.' Prince wanted me to tell you guys that okay. Please know it's us tweeting ... Prince will repost the image of the text."
