More controversy inside Michael Jackson’s family.
A number of MJ’s siblings — along with close family friends — think Paris Jackson is being exploited by a little-known Hollywood producer, who has yet to do a feature film.
Katherine Jackson supposedly has been charmed byStephen Sobisky into allowing Paris to star in “Lundon’s Bridge,” based on a privately published, little-known Hollywood actor, Dennis Christen.Janet Charlton
reports others slated to appear in the movie are Larry King and his wife, Shawn, and Joey Fatone of N’Sync.
I’ve learned that the Kings’ close relationship with the Jacksons was a big part of this coming together.
While Paris has shown a real flair for acting — in private classes and school productions — many believe being the daughter of the King of Pop would automatically allow her access to Hollywood’s best studios, producers and directors.
“She does not need to be involved with a guy who clearly is using her attachment to his project to raise the money. … This is pure exploitation of Michael Jackson’s only daughter,” said a source very close to the family.

MJ fans are preserving it, his siblings are preserving it and the Estate is making money off of it.

I also feel that someone is controlling what Katherine, Michael's mother and Paris' grandmother, in regards to the decisions that have been made. I do not think that deep down, Katherine wants Paris to jump into acting and possibly modeling when she just turned 13 in April. I think that someone in the family, not Katherine's children or grown grandchildren, are doing this. Back in July, Randy, Michael's younger brother, had a twitter Q &A with fans and a fan asked him about a certain family member. This is what he stated -
