The wedding of Taj Jackson and Tayana Jackson was a major family affair, with one notable exception: Michael Jackson’s daughter Paris Jackson.

The Sunday nuptials of Taj and Tayana took place at the family’s Hayvenhurst home, and “was like a family reunion,” says a source inside the wedding.

Taj Jackson is the oldest son of Michael’s brother Tito, and the older brother of TJ Jackson, who in 2012 was named co-guardian of MJ’s three children.

One of whom, Paris Jackson, was conspicuously absent Sunday.

“No one said a word about Paris,” an E! source says, adding that the troubled teen “really wanted to come but they wouldn’t let her out of the hospital.”


“I think everyone was trying to block it out and just enjoy the wedding. You wouldn’t know anything was going on, except that [Katherine] looked sad.”

“She just didn’t look her normal, happy self today.”

The reason for that is very much obvious.

“She’s optimistic Paris will get the help she needs. She doesn’t think Paris realized at the time how serious the consequences of her actions would be.”

“The hospitalization has hit Paris hard that this is serious.”

Meanwhile, Paris’ brothers, Prince and Blanket, “are very well adjusted. You wouldn’t know anything was wrong. They were hanging out and laughing.”

“Prince’s girlfriend was there. He didn’t leave her hip the entire night. Blanket was really outgoing, but he only talks to the people he’s close with.”

Considering recent reports that Paris and Prince do not have the same father, we’re glad to hear that the focus was on having a good time on this day.

Besides Prince Michael, Blanket and Katherine, other well-known guests included Jermaine Jacksun, La Toya Jackson, Tito Jackson and Joe Jackson.

Also in attendance were Omer Bhatti and Kris Jenner, who was “happy” and “looking fabulous” following news that Kim Kardashian gave birth to a baby girl.
