The Jackson family couldn’t let the past stay in the past as they gathered to lay their patriarch, Joe Jackson, to rest on Monday.
According to a new report in Radar Online, Janet Jackson and her niece Paris, Michael Jackson’s eldest daughter, refused to speak to each other during the service.
“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 deathbed.
“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 and absurd 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 said some kind words only without referring to what happened in the past to her.
“I will always love you! You gave us strength; you made our family one of the most famous families in the world. I am extremely thankful for 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 luncheon at the Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena, California, after laying their father to rest at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park 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.
