Janet Jackson is reportedly “furious” that her niece, Paris, daughter of her late brother Michael Jackson, has landed a role in the upcoming film, “Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys.”

Us Weekly is reporting that Jackson “feels it goes against Michael’s wishes to keep his kids out of the the limelight until age 18,” according to a source who spoke with the magazine.

Paris, 14, landed the role back in December, and aunt Janet has previously expressed concern over her niece entering the spotlight so soon.

“We’ve spoken about the fact that you’re only a child once,” Janet told Preventionmagazine 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.”

    As much as I love Janet Jackson, isn’t she being hypocritical? We all remember “Penny” from Good Times…It may give her perspective, but the family can guide Paris through the perils of the entertainment industry also.

  • Janet is jealous, all of the jackson’s were performing when they were children, even her, She was on ” Good Times ” and ” Fame ” no one stays a kid forever too , Janet.
