According to The Huffington Post, Michael Jackson’s daughter, Paris Jackson, has been cast in the film, “Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys.” However, Janet Jackson, Paris’ aunt, is less than happy.
According to US Weekly, a source states that Janet feels Paris’ involvement in film goes against Michael’s wishes for his children to stay out of the public eye until age 18. This is not the first time Janet’s been hesitant about Paris’ acting career. When the casting was announced December of last year, Janet said to Prevention magazine in May, “We’ve spoken about the fact that you’re only a child once.”
“I think there’s a time for everything, and now is not the time [for acting],” said Janet. “I told her I thought she should enjoy being a kid, possibly go to college–or not–but wait till she turns 18. She’s a very tough, smart girl. But it’s a cutthroat industry. I wouldn’t want my child to do it.”
However, according to the US Weekly article, a source said Paris is hoping to get cast in more films. According to the source, the desire for film roles is causing a “huge dispute.”
