It's been a tough week for Paris Jackson.

On June 27, the Jackson family patriarch, Joe Jackson, passed away at the age of 89 after a long battle with terminal pancreatic cancer.

Joe was known as the strict founder of the Jackson 5 and the father to 11 children, including the late Michael Jackson.

This made him the grandfather to the King of Pop's three children, Prince, 21, Paris, 20, and Blanket, 16, who have mostly stayed out of the spotlight following their father's passing.

However, out of the three children, Paris has been known to be the most vocal of the trio, as she's dipped her toe into the acting world and is often seen on her social media platforms.

The day after Joe's death, Paris took to Instagram, where she wrote a heartfelt post about grandfather, accompanied by a series of photos of the pair holding hands in the elder Jackson's hospital bed and him in his younger years.

She wrote: "You are the first true Jackson. the legend that started it all. None of us would be anywhere near where we’re at if it weren’t for you. You are the strongest man I know. Your life’s work will go down in history, as will you, to be known as one of the greatest patriarchs to ever live. I will cherish every moment with you til the day I die, especially our last moments."

"I will cherish every moment with you til the day I die, especially our last moments. Being able to hold your hand, lay with you and cuddle you, give you kisses all over your cheeks and forehead, meant more to me than you’ll ever know," another part of the tribute read.

Of course, nothing stays peaceful in Tinseltown, and it was only days before the media was flooded with rumors that Paris and her aunt Janet Jackson, 51, were feuding at her grandfather's funeral.

But the blue-eyed starlet was quick to debunk the claims on Twitter.

She wrote: "Janet and I haven’t argued in over 6 years, stop with these stupid rumors. I have nothing but love for my family and they all know it. F*** off."

Luckily for Paris, her week has gotten a little bit better after a judge granted the talented singer a temporary restraining order against her alleged stalker.

According to documents obtained by TMZ, Paris said a man named Nicholas Lewis Stevens "showed up at a recording studio she was working at in June."

The documents claim Stevens told Paris he had stopped by the building multiple times before in a brief interaction, even admitting he had once waited 15 hours for her to arrive.

It also said that when one of Paris' friends asked what Stevens was doing there, he replied: "What the f*** does it look like I'm doing here? I'm stalking your bitch."

Authorities later arrested Stevens after he supposedly told Paris, "By midnight it will all be over ... the way it ends is with her or with a shotgun."

Following the incident, Stevens tweeted Jackson on July 1, stating that he is her "soulmate."

The case will be revisited on July 24, but until then Stevens must stay 100 yards from Paris and cease any attempts to try to contact her.
