Latoya Jackson


The wedding between Taj Jackson and Tayana Jackson was a full-on Jackson family affair, but there was one notable absence: Paris Jackson.

The nuptials, which were held Sunday afternoon at the family's Hayvenhurst home, "was like a family reunion," says a source inside the wedding. Guests included Prince Michael Jackson, Blanket Jackson, Katherine Jackson, Jermaine Jacksun, La Toya Jackson, Tito Jackson and Joe Jackson.

Also in attendance were Omer Bhatti and proud new grandmother Kris Jenner, whom our source tells us "was happy" and "looking fabulous" following news that Kim Kardashian welcomed a baby girl.

As for Paris' absence? Mum's the word.

"No one said a word about Paris," our source says, adding that the 15-year-old, who was being treated at UCLA Medical Center following her alleged suicide attempt, "wanted to come but they wouldn't let her out of the hospital."

"I think everyone was trying to block it out and just enjoy the wedding," our source adds. "You wouldn't know anything was going on, except that [Katherine] looked sad. She didn't look her normal, happy self."

Still, the family matriarch seemed to be keeping a positive outlook.

"She's optimistic Paris will get the help she needs," we're told. "She doesn't think Paris realized at the time how serious the consequences of her actions would be. The hospitalization has hit Paris hard that this is serious."

Meanwhile, Paris' brothers, Prince Michael and Blanket, reportedly spent the wedding dancing and having fun with their cousins.

"Blanket and Prince are very well-adjusted. You wouldn't know anything was wrong," the insider claims.

"They were hanging out and laughing with their cousins, having a great time. Prince's girlfriend was there. He didn't leave her hip the entire night. And Blanket was really outgoing, but he only talks to the people he's close with."

As for the wedding, which had a "family reunion" feeling to it, everything went off without the kind of domestic drama associated with the famous family.

In fact, the nuptials featured the key hallmark of the Jackson clan: music.

"Jermaine got up and sang three songs," our insider says, adding that the singer "dedicated one to his mother, Katherine."
