Janet Jackson Dispute Rages Over Paris Jackson Film Role
Janet Jackson 's dispute over her niece Paris Jackson accepting a film role looks set to rumble on. She considers the 14 year old's decision to be against the wishes of her late brother, Michael Jackson. Jacko apparently wanted Paris to stay out of the limelight until she reaches the age of 18, according to US magazine but she has accepted a role in the forthcoming movie 'Lundon's Bridge and the Three Keys', which is scheduled for release next year.
US magazine reports that Janet is at loggerheads with the rest of the Jackson family over the decision to allow Paris to act in the film. An insider has told them "She feels it goes against Michael's wishes to keep his kids out of the limelight until age 18." Janet of course, will be conscious of the negative effects that a life in the limelight had on Michael's own childhood. It's understandable that she feels Paris needs protecting from the same pitfalls experienced by her father. "Janet thinks Paris should enjoy being a kid and possibly go to college" and reportedly told her niece "You're only young once."
Paris, on the other hand is said to be "hoping for more roles" once she is done filming the movie, which is also thought to feature Joey Fatone, of the boy-band Nsync. It's caused a "huge dispute" in the Jackson camp, apparently, though all signs seem to be pointing towards Paris going ahead with the movie, as planned.
