While Janet’s fans and some of her close family members celebrated the big night with her at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards, there was one relative who wasn’t in attendance; her niece Paris Jackson.

However, Paris shared her cousin Austin Brown’s Instagram post celebrating Janet, by adding “Ditto” to his congratulatory post. After social media began to point out the obvious, Paris decided it was best to address her absence:

“Dear social media followers, friends, stalkers, lovers and haters, and fellow moonwalkers: Please do not tell me/demand/try to control how I handle my relationship with the people in my life, specifically my family,” Paris wrote. “As amazing and as shitty as things can be, it is no one’s business but ours.”

She continued,

“I understand that some of you feel some sort of connection or need to be apart (sic) of our lives considering you watched us grow up. However, I am handling my situation exactly how my father did. And I am happy keeping it that way. I will always have love and respect for my family. ALWAYS.”

Paris quickly reminded everyone that their family issues aren’t different from the standard family struggles.

“Every family has their moments of trauma, heartbreak, separation, love, oneness, tribe, pain, everything. EVERY FAMILY,” she wrote. “My family, specifically, and a good number of others…well, our drama is broadcasted worldwide through media. But that doesn’t mean our family issues are any different from yours. Ours are just made public.”
