These days the documentary ‘Leaving Neverland’ in the whole world is about the tongues. In it two men, Wade Robson and James Safechuck testify how they were sexually abused by Michael Jackson as a child. His daughter, Paris (20), now fears that the controversy will have an effect on her budding film career.

Twenty-year-old Paris had her first film role in 2018 in the comedy ‘Gringo’, next to Charlize Theron and Amanda Seyfried. She fears, however, that after the controversy about ‘Leaving Neverland’, directors will think twice before they offer her another role. “She believes the documentary directors startled,” a source tells The Sun. “It all comes down to marketing. The fear is that every film that she will play with will do badly if this scandal is the only thing that people can think of when they see her on the screen. She wants to act, but she knows that this can upset those plans. “

Yet Jackson continues to believe in her father. She has not seen the documentary yet – contrary to what she claimed earlier, she did not get the chance to see the film before he premiered – but she is certain that her father would not abuse children. 

‘Leaving Neverland’ is on Friday at 20.25 on Canvas.
