A separate Jackson family insider told Radar that the model is furious with her aunt for not spending Joe's last days by his side.

"Paris thinks Janet is acting fake," the insider said. (As Radar has previously reported, Janet and her father had a notoriously tumultuous relationship.)

Radar previously reported that Janet and Paris were fighting over who would cover the costs of the funeral.

"Paris believes her grandpa is a legend and should be treated as such," a source told Radar last week.

While Paris and Janet snubbed each other, Joe's daughter LaToya fought with his grandson Taj, the son of Tito Jackson.

"Taj is very protective of his grandpa, and he feels that it was disrespectful for her to attend," the insider told Radar. (LaToya accused Joe of sexual abuse in her 1991 memoir.)

As Radar reported, Joe died after a battle with cancer on June 17. He was 89.

The source told Radar Joe was buried outside of the mausoleum where Michael was laid to rest in 2009.
