Paris Jackson Becomes Her Own Woman During Family Feud
Diana Ross is finally breaking her silence about the Jackson family civil war.
The singer, who was named in Michael Jackson's will as a back-up guardian for Paris, Prince and Blanket in the event Katherine Jackson becomes incapacitated, is issuing a public appeal for peace and quiet.
"All interests are best served if it remains private," she told the Associated Press.
But one source close to Ross told TheDailyBeast.com, she has "no intention of taking those kids."
The source said, "She has her own life on the East Coast and wouldn't want to uproot them to come live there. That wouldn't be fair to anyone, particularly those kids."
Meanwhile, Paris Jackson has been silenced.
She said she's been ordered to go to what she calls "Twitter jail." It's clear someone inside the Jackson family has told her to cool it with the tweets.
'I gotta go offline until I'm out of twitter jail lol,' she tweeted, 'keep on keeping on guys.'
The Twitter ban comes after a full week of edgy messages from Paris that exposed the bitter feud inside the Jackson family.
One tweet aimed squarely at her uncle, Randy, read, "Hello dear FAMILY member I don't appreciate you telling everyone things that aren't true thank you very much."
Randy, along with Janet, Rebbie and Jermaine Jackson, are contesting Michael Jackson's will, which left them nothing.
Paris has really come into her own during the crisis—a rebel with a cause. She's the only girl on her school football team. She goes out on dates, and has been spotted at concerts.
But it's on Twitter where she has really let loose.
When her grandmother Katherine went missing, she reached out to her followers, she has 770,000 of them, and she pulled no punches.
"9 days and counting..so help me God I will make whoever did this pay," she tweeted.
And after that now famous scuffle with her aunt, Janet Jackson, Paris sarcastically tweeted, "gotta love fam."
E! News correspondent Alicia Quarles told INSIDE EDITION, "Paris is like any teenager, when she gets upset, they go on social media. They go on Twitter, they go on Facebook, and they say to their friends, 'I'm upset. I can't believe this happend.' She's doing the same thing, except the whole world is watching."
But Paris is not without her critics. Singer Gladys Knight had this to say about reports that she cursed at her aunt Janet.
"If she called me that, she would have no teeth. That's how we were brought up," Knight said on The Talk.
Of course the big question is - what would her dad say?
"Michael would be proud of his daughter. The fact that she's defending her siblings, she is fighting for her grandmother, she is fighting for her legacy, their estate. I think Michael would be very disappointed by his siblings how everything has played out publically. After all, they're the adults, she's just a child," said Quarles.
