Janet Jackson & Niece, Paris Jackson ‘Avoided Each Other At Joe’s Funeral’

The Jackson family couldn’t let bygones be bygones as they gathered to lay their patriarch, Joe Jackson, to rest on Monday.

According to a new report in RadarOnline, Janet Jackson and her niece Paris, Michael Jackson’s eldest daughter, refused to speak during the services.

‘Paris was almost unnoticeable at the funeral, and chose to stay away from her father’s siblings,’ one source told the outlet. ‘She was definitely frosty.’

Another source told Radar that Paris was upset that her aunt didn’t spend more time at her grandfather’s death bed.

‘Paris thinks Janet is acting fake,’ the source close to the family said.

It was previously reported that Paris and Janet had been fighting over who would pay for the funeral.

Meanwhile, it was also reported that La Toya Jackson was fighting with her nephew Taj, son of her brother Tito Jackson.

‘Taj is very protective of his grandpa, and he feels that it was disrespectful for her to attend,’ a source told Radar.

La Toya accused her father of physical and sexual abuse in her 1991 memoir.

But when he died last Wednesday, she only had kind things to say.

‘I will always love you! You gave us strength, you made us one of the most famous families in the world. I am extremely appreciative of that, I will never forget our moments together and how you told me how much you cared. #RIP Joe Jackson,’ La Toya tweeted last week.

Both Janet and La Toya were seen attending a lunching at the Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena, California, after laying their father to rest at the Forest Lawn Memorial Part cemetery in Glendale.

Paris was not photographed leaving the luncheon like many of the Jackson family members – including her younger brother Blanket.

It’s unclear whether the model attended the luncheon at all.
