Janet Jackson Reportedly Furious Over Paris Jackson's Movie Role

Janet Jackson is reportedly "furious" that her niece Paris Jackson has landed a role in the upcoming fantasy adventure Lundon's Bridge and the Three Keys.

According to Us Weekly, Janet, 46, "feels it goes against Michael's wishes to keep his kids out of the the limelight until age 18," according to a source who knows the Jacksons.

Paris, who is only 14, was cast in the movie last December, and Aunt Janet has been vocal that she isn't on board with the decision to allow her late brother Michael's daughter officially start a Hollywood career so young.

"We've spoken about the fact that you're only a child once," Janet told Prevention magazine in May. "I think there's a time for everything, and now is not the time [to act in films]. 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."

But Paris is "hoping for more roles," says the source. "It's a huge dispute!" The daughter of the late King of Pop feels inspired by her father's success.

"When I was really little, my dad was in the movie 'Moonwalker' and I knew he could sing really well, but I didn't know he could act," Paris told Ellen DeGeneres last December. "I saw that and I said, 'Wow, I want to be just like him.'"
