Throughout all the recent Jackson family drama surrounding Michael’s will and who should have custody of his children, it’s become painfully obvious who has suffered the most — Michael’s pretty 14-year-old daughter, Paris.
According to a source, Paris has been under a huge amount of stress from all the bickering and worrying about her beloved grandma, Katherine, who she thought went missing late last month. (It turned out that she was at a spa with some of her children in Arizona — but Paris believes she was coerced into going.)
Upon her return, Katherine and her grandson TJ agreed to share guardianship of the kids, but nothing is settled yet for Paris, who feels let down by the entire Jackson clan. “Paris feels the Jackson feud could very well kill her 82-year-old grandmother,” a source says. “And she would never forgive the family if that happened. She’s been lying in bed at night, wondering what her dad would want her to do. But the truth is, that kind of question shouldn’t be on the mind of a 14-year-old!”
After Michael’s death, the entire Jackson family came together to reassure Paris and her brothers that they would be there for them — no matter what. But suddenly they’re all at war over who’s in control, and Paris thinks that she and her brothers are being used as pawns. “Paris feels more than ever that now she has to be a mother figure to the boys,” says a source.
