TMZ retracts Janet Jackson story, says pop star did not slap or verbally abuse Paris

LOS ANGELES

TMZ had published a story that Janet Jackson had slapped Michael Jackson's daughter and verbally abused her during a confrontation at the Jackson family home in Calabasas last week.

But after Janet Jackson's lawyer Blair G. Brown went on "The Insider" to threaten legal action, TMZ posted on its website Wednesday that the story was incorrect.

Since the Calabasas confrontation, Michael Jackson's estate publicly acknowledged that some family members have been barred from the home where Katherine Jackson and the children live, but it did not specify which family members were not allowed at the home.
