Janet Jackson is so upset over reports that she slapped her niece Paris and called her a lil beyotch that she’s considering suing the media outlet that first published the story:
Last week, internet rumors surfaced concerning an alleged altercation between Janet Jackson and her niece Paris. Today, Janet Jackson’s attorney, Blair G. Brown, tells The Insider that Janet vehemently denies the altercation.
