Janet Jackson is fighting off parties who make her and her family's name bad after the death of her brother Michael Jackson. Through her attorney, Blair Brown, the singer has accused gossip site TMZ of "false and defamatory" statements in the story of Michael's estate paying for Janet's condo.

"By this letter, I inform you that an article regarding my client that appeared on TMZ.com on August 14, 2012 is false and defamatory. That article is 'Michael Jackson Estate Offers to Pay for Janet Jackson's Condo'. Specifically, the article states that the Estate of Michael Jackson filed documents in the probate court requesting that the estate be permitted 'to foot a portion of the bill on Janet's mortgage on her posh Las Vegas condo'. That statement is false," the letter sent to TMZ's lawyers is read.

Janet made her point by writing, "The additional false story about Ms. Jackson this week on TMZ.com, posted with the knowledge that it would be repeated on hundreds of other websites, demonstrates, at a minimum, a pattern of reckless disregard for the truth in TMZ's reporting on Ms. Jackson and strongly suggests that TMZ is engaged in a malicious campaign to defame her."

Earlier this month, Janet and her siblings, Randy and Rebbie, also blamed Michael's estate for running smear campaign to make them look bad. These three were accused of kidnapping their mother Katherine Jackson.

Just hating onthe Jacksons. We forget that MIchael would not have been anyhting if it were not for his talent and the sibblings that helped him homne his skills. Dad and the older brothers helped build him up. It would have been hard to be a Jackson 1! I loved him too. He will forever be the greatest entertainer/artist/dancer of all time 4 me. But family is still family and they deserve credit and a break at the same time. Luv you Ms. Nasty...still the badest chick.....I know Michael loved his kid but I doubt he would be happy with the current fiasco around them and his familys legacy. Stay strong Mama Jackson....this too shall pass...
