A few weeks ago, TMZ broke the news about an alleged fight between the Jackson family at the Calabasas, Calif. home that escalated into slapping, punching, and verbal abuse.

In the article, sources say that Janet Jackson got very physical with Michael Jackson’s daughter Paris after she tried to take her cellphone away. She then allegedly slapped her teenage niece and called her a “spoiled little bitch.”

Now TMZ is retracting the claim that this incident ever happened. “Although we believed the story to be true when we published it, we have now determined it was not correct ... Janet did not slap or otherwise touch Paris, nor did she verbally abuse her.”
