This week, Williams posted a link on her Twitter page to her Hot Topics Rundown on the show’s website. In the post, Williams talked about a recent news story involving the Jackson family. In it, she discussed how Paris’s younger brother, Prince Michael Jackson II — otherwise known as “Blanket” — is having issues with his guardianship.

In the post, titled “Keeping Up With the Jacksons,” Williams wrote about how Blanket’s grandmother, Katherine Jackson, had recently filed court documents to give up her guardianship of her grandson. The post alleges Katherine said, “now that Blanket is 15, cousin TJ can handle the guardianship on his own.” TJ Jackson is Blanket’s cousin and son o f Tito Jackson. The post says that Katherine’s advanced age is making it hard for her to raise Blanket and that TJ “commutes from 40 minutes away to check on him” in his home, a $10.5 million home with “a chef, housekeeper, and security.”

The post also alleges that Paris “reportedly complained that Blanket was raising himself.”

In response to the post, Paris tweeted back at Williams, writing that “your obsession is a little unhealthy, maybe even toxic.”

Paris also said there are “plenty of qualified professional psychiatrists [Williams] can seek out.”

This isn’t the first time Paris has taken issue with Williams’s reporting on her and the Jackson family. Back in January, Williams spoke about Jackson’s “Rolling Stone” cover on her show’s Hot Topics segment. In a moment of “real talk,” Williams claimed that Paris “has not made her mark on her own.”

“You cannot be on the cover of one of the most prestigious entertainment and influential magazines in the world and just be the daughter of and tell your story inside,” Williams said. “Sorry, you all.”

Williams also discussed Paris’s interview in the magazine, discussing Paris’s belief that her father, pop singer Michael Jackson, was murdered. Williams also discussed Paris’s “considering herself black,” which Paris told “Rolling Stone” she believes she is.

“I get that she considers herself black and everything, but I’m just talking about the visual because you know … black is not what you call yourself, it’s what the cops see you when they got steel to your neck on the turnpike. It’s what they see,” Williams explained. “But that’s cute and good for her.”

Jackson replied with a tweet, saying that Williams “seems to think about the family a lot considering she makes all these claims about us,” and also asked, “Why are we on her mind so often?”

In response to Williams’s beliefs on Paris’s race, Paris wrote, “Well, she didn’t birth me so.”
