What would you say if your aunt(an adult) called you a "spoiled little bitch"? I can now see why Michael stayed away. They see his children and mother as a paycheck.

I agree with lyndee!

if my aunt was coming at me in a hostile manner, that respect is the door. I was taught to respect my elders but not at any cost. some people who act disrespectful will and should be treated the same way.

The problem with the europeans is that they don't have culture cos if they do paris will know that talking back and insulting ur aunt is a sign or disrecpect and lack of home training, also this guys are africans weither they like it or not, forget being born into d state.the whole of the jackson clan should just relax and see a psycho analyst to resolve their issues or better still they should call a family meeting and exclude d paps frm the meeting

AND no one except those who were there know what Paris & Janet said. Period. There's no audio on the tape & their lips can't be read.

Where in the letter does it say they want to be benficiaries of the will? Janet is very wealthy. Mike didn't want his kids to be 'public' until they're 18. Paris is on twitter, interviewing & in a movie. Janet knows it goes against what Mike wanted. Executors haven't followed Mike's wishes. Mike didn't trust Sony, yet estate sells his music to them. Former sony pres Mottola deposited $s in Branca's offshore account while Branca was working for Mike. All documented.

I too to respect my elders. It doesn't show any self respect of Janet & the rest of them to behave the way they have towards those kids. Do they really think that this totally disrespectful that they went about this is how to behave. I' they didn't give a crap about their mothers health when they pull this. Stand your ground Paris don't let them or anyone else push you or your brothers around. Remember, what your dad told you about them. I'm sure your mother Debbie could also tell you a few things about them. Love & respect your Grandmother
Always. Maybe Katherine needs a battery of tests to see if she is ok,. Physically & mentally before she can be granted any type of consideration of further custody. If things get this way again can she honestly do what is in the kids best intrest over her children greed & untrustworthy motives.

Oh please,that whacko family is all about the money!! Glady's needs to call it what it is greed!!!

GOOD FOR PARIS. She is strong and so are the other kids. Janet needs to stay the heck home and mind her own business. Perhaps seek out someone who actually wants to see her boob. Those kids are devoted to their grandmother and should be. Don't think for a minute that they don't know they are a path to cash. I am so glad that after all of the shelter their father gave them, still they are strong. You go Paris.
