On Monday police were called to the Jackson family's Calabasas, Calif. home following an alleged ambush attempt made by Jackson's siblings Randy, Jermaine and Janet, who have been accused of trying to remove the late singer's children from the home.
Video surveillance footage taken from the home shows Janet, 46, aggressively trying to snatch Paris' cell phone from her hands and new reports suggest that the teen was slapped and verbally abused by her aunt.
"You're a spoiled little b----!" Janet allegedly screamed at Paris, a source reportedly told TMZ.com.
Paris reportedly then slapped her aunt back before demanding that she leave.
"This is our house. Not the Jackson family house. Get the f--- out!" Paris allegedly blasted back.
Violence also ensued between the male Jackson family members, according to reports. Trent Jackson, Janet's cousin, allegedly placed her brother Randy in a headlock and punched her other brother Jermaine in the mouth.
The reports follow a string of bizarre incidents which have occurred between Jackson family members in recent weeks.
Katherine Jackson, Janet's mother, was recently reported missing, although it has since been revealed that she is fine and visiting family in Arizona.
Paris, who along with her siblings lives with Katherine in the Calabasas home, claims that she has not been allowed to communicate with her grandmother for almost two weeks. Katherine's attorneys are now concerned for the well-being of Michael's children and recently described Monday's incident in a statement.
"Yesterday afternoon certain Jackson family members ambushed Katherine Jackson's home after their vehicle tore through security gates on the tails of the SUV containing Michael Jackson's children," attorney's for Katherine said in a statement to TMZ.com.
"After exiting their vehicles, Jackson family members ran up to Michael's children as they yelled and began to aggressively grab at the cell phones in their hands. Out of concern for the well being of Prince, Paris, and Blanket Jackson, the children were forced to temporarily leave their home and taken to a safe location. An altercation ensued shortly thereafter and law enforcement arrived at the scene," the publication continued.
"Prince, Paris, and Blanket Jackson have not heard from their grandmother since she left their home nine days ago to attend a series of her sons' concerts on their Unity Tour," the statement added.
The feud is said to be in relation to a dispute over Michael's $1 billion estate, and the fact that a number of his siblings were reportedly left out of his will.
