Joe Jackson has avoided arrest after a scuffle with a guest at the hotel he was staying at, according to reports.

Michael Jackson's father allegedly flew into a rage when a fellow patron pointed his lens at him whilst he was at the Palms hotel in Las Vegas on Thursday (October 4).

TMZ reports that he became aggressive and ordered him to stop taking pictures.

Police were soon called on to the scene, as well as hotel security, but the guest decided against pressing charges.

In other Jackson news, Janet's attorney has denied that she delayed Michael's funeral over a financial row.

Vanity Fair had reported that the singer stalled the late King of Pop's burial over a money issue with the burial plot.

However, in a statement released to ET, her lawyer said: "To falsely accuse Ms Jackson of holding up her brother's funeral over money is outrageous. Ms Jackson never delayed the funeral in any way."
