Last week, TMZ was breaking all kinds of news when it came to the Jackson family's ongoing disputes. Among their reports was one that indicated that Janet Jackson, along with her brothers Tito and Randy, showed up at the home in Calabasas where Michael Jackson's kids -- Paris, Prince and Blanket -- live with their grandmother and proceeded to slap Paris and call her a "spoiled little bitch."

Now, the gossip site has issued a correction, stating that no such altercation took place:

Janet Jackson did not slap or verbally abuse Paris Jackson during a confrontation at the Jackson family home in Calabasas last week... Although we believed the story to be true when we published it, we have now determined it was not correct ... Janet did not slap or otherwise touch Paris, nor did she verbally abuse her.

There you have it. Everything in the Jackson domain is just fine!
