On Monday, Janet Jackson led mourners at her father Joe Jackson's funeral services in Glendale, California. The ceremony was held at Forest Lawn — the same place where Michael Jackson was laid to rest in 2009.

A source told that Janet, 52, insisted on paying for the funeral, because she believed letting  niece Paris pay would be "an embarrassment to the family."

The two beauties had been fighting about Joe's funeral ever since his tragic passing. The model, 20, wanted to create an unforgettable ceremony, worthy of a King, while Janet simply wanted to have a standard funeral, as she never had a good relationship with her father.
