| Filed under: Janet JacksonMusic MinuteDisneySad SadSickPerezcious Parenting

Janet Jackson doesn't speak out about her famous family much, so this moment at the Radio Disney Music Awards was all the more impactful.

As she accepted her Impact Award, the first ever, the Rhythm Nation singer paid homage to her parents, including Joe Jackson, who we understand is in the final days of his battle with terminal cancer.

Janet said of her father, who eventually admitted in 2010 to physically abusing his children, that he "drove me to be the best that I can."

See Janet's kind words (above)!

When speaking about her thirties, the mom of one writes:

"I struggled with depression. The struggle was intense. Low self-esteem might be rooted in childhood feelings of inferiority. It could relate to failing to meet impossibly high standards. And of course there are always the societal issues of racism and sexism. Put it all together and depression is a tenacious and scary condition. Thankfully, I found my way through it."

She continues about her experience in her forties:

Janet Jackson's ex-husband isn't happy with how his custody battle is playing out.

A source close to the situation told ET that Wissam Al Mana is "upset" about their child custody arrangement, which states that a caregiver must be present when the Qatari billionaire spends time with their son Eissa.

The insider added that Al Mana is also unhappy about the amount of time he's allowed to spend with the 1-year-old.

This scoop comes days after the Feedback singer called the police over concern for her son, who was at the time under the care of Al Mana and a "terrified" nanny.

The source also claimed that Al Mana has been verbally aggressive to Jackson in the past, corroborating some of brother Randy Jackson's allegations about the couple's toxic relationship.

Sounds like an upsetting situation all around.

Janet Jackson wasn't messing around!

Janet Jackson is keeping her eyes on estranged ex-husband Wissam Al Mana, especially when it comes to their son!

The songstress called for the police at 10 p.m. Saturday night to check on the welfare of their child Eissa Al Mana while he was in his father's care at the Nobu Hotel in Malibu.

While Janet wasn't at the hotel at the time of the incident, she did show up when police arrived. Additionally, a spokesperson for the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff's Station confirmed:

"Deputies were there [and] called to the scene. They decided the child was okay and they left."

It turns out it was a message from their son's nanny that inspired her to call for a welfare check.

Her brother Randy Jackson revealed to Entertainment Tonight that the nanny was "terrified" by Wissam's "behavior and locked herself in a bathroom, so she could contact Janet."

Scary! We're glad to hear Eissa was okay in the end though!

Paris Jackson isn't taking suggestions on how to interact with her own family, thank you very much!

Michael Jackson's daughter took to Instagram on Sunday to congratulate aunt Janet Jackson on her iconic performance and speech at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards. But some fans thought she could have done a little more to honor her relative.

While Janet's mother Katherine Jackson, sister Rebbie Jackson, and nephew Prince Jackson cheered her on from inside the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Paris stuck to the sidelines of social media to write a literal one-worded tribute.

For her part, the 20-year-old screenshotted an IG post from Rebbie's son Austin Brown to her Instagram Story. Brown shared a photo of Janet's "stellar performance," writing in a gushing caption that "greatness is ageless." Paris didn't have much to add to the tribute, simply writing "Ditto."

Needless to say, the curt tribute post rubbed some fans the wrong way, which prompted Paris to address some larger issues within the famous family. She wrote:
