Gladys Knight Wants to Knock Out Paris Jackson’s Teeth

Janet Jackson Paris Jackson

The Jackson Family drama has taken the Internet by storm and has been twisted in more ways than one, one of the biggest rumors being that Paris Jackson got slapped by Janet Jackson and Paris served Janet with a slap of her own. The rumor was going strong for a minute until Paris took to her Twitter account to dispel it, tweeting that she did not get slapped by her aunt. Although she is a teenager, Paris Jackson is known for having a mouth on her. A mouth that she isn’t afraid to use towards anyone that pisses her off including her uncle Randy Jackson and aunt Janet Jackson, a person that many people thought she wouldn’t dare talk crazy to.

Aside from the alleged slap that Paris denied receiving from Janet, these two were said to have gotten into a heated exchange of words when Janet attempted to take Paris’ phone from her. In the midst of it all, Janet was said to have called Paris a “spoiled little b****”. Paris’ alleged response: “This is our house. Not the Jackson family house. Get the f*** out!”

Here’s a picture from ABC of when the alleged slap fest took place:

Paris’ brother, Prince Jackson, also seemed to be upset with his aunt for keeping them away from their grandmother after a text message that he sent to Janet and a few other relatives was tweeted from his account.

Paris may not have used these exact words (God knows I hope she didn’t) towards her aunt, but knowing the little fireball that she is, we can bet that she did pop off at the mouth to Janet.

Gladys Knight however says that Janet is a good one for not taking Paris out for being so disrespectful. The legendary R&B Soul singer shared her thoughts on what all is taking place with the Jackson Family in a interview that she did with The Talk.

Knight said that yes, it was indeed drama and that this family and other non-celebrity families too, all have their share of it:

 “Drama, that’s what it is. And if you’ve lived up under the microscope as this family does, everybody has dysfunctionality in their families in one way or the other, you know”

And she said Paris Jackson was way out of line for speaking to her aunt like for she feels like Janet was only trying to help Paris and her brothers:

“See I’m from the South and I was raised in that Southern way. You know, you have to understand what Paris is 14? How old is Janet? You know, who’s the one to try to direct the other one here? And I would think it’s a good thing that she let’s Paris know who she is, she is a Jackson. She shouldn’t be putting the business, ‘cause people read into that whatever they want to read into that. That’s how they get the drama. So she’s just trying to protect her in a way”

Gladys also said that if Paris would have done that to her, she would have knocked her teeth clean out:

“But if she called me that, she wouldn’t have no teeth. That’s the way we were brought up, you know what I mean, you respect your elders and so that’s the way it is”

Paris Jackson better be glad Gladys Knight isn’t her aunt. That child would have been missing a few right about now.


  1. Seriously Gladys? She’s speaking on a situation she knows nothing about. And then the sloppiest thing of it all is that she’s taking what TMZ as truth and it’s been proven several times that they have lied about the whole Jackson situation that’s been going on all week. So excuse me if I find her comments distasteful and ignorant. The real problem black folks have with these kids is that they are WHITE. No one wants to admit it but the way some of us keep trying to make these kids out like little demons is beyond disgusting. Gladys should get her facts straight before she goes in on someone else’s kids. They’ve been through enough already.

  2. I strongly disagree with all of you. So we’re not going to even address how disrespectful it was for those kids to tweet out all the family business? I mean these kids gave a play by play of the family business on Twitter. Now y’all know good and well your momma and daddy, uncles, and aunts, cousins would have back handed you if you pulled the same thing on your Twitter account. These kids are just that, kids, and they act like they are too grown to even respect their own elders and guardians.

  3. I’m from the South and Glady’s has every right to feel the way she does. She wasn’t raised like that and I wasn’t either. Mike’s kids are too grown and people aren’t feeling them because they act like brats. Not because they aren’t black. Stop trolling on here (not talking to you Gia).

  4. People need to be real careful about what they are saying about this whole situation because there are a still a lot of facts missing, but it’s plenty of hearsay. Gladys is talking reckless based off hearsay. And that’s not cool.
