Paris Jackson 'will leave family behind'

Paris Jackson's godfather believes she will walk away from the Jackson family when she turns 16.

Paris Jackson will walk away from her family and “never go back” when she turns 16, claims her godfather.

It was recently revealed that 15-year-old Paris is getting to know her biological mother, Debbie Rowe, after years of estrangement. Now Mark Lester, who is godfather to the late Michael Jackson’s three children, believes Paris is preparing to make a clean break from her overbearing clan.

“I’m sure when Paris hits 16 she will take herself out of that Jackson clan, walk out of that door and never turn back,” he told British magazine Grazia. “She will never go back. I’m glad she’s got Debbie Rowe in her life.”

Paris celebrated her 15th birthday with Debbie last month.

Since Michael’s death in 2009, Paris and her brothers Prince, 16, and Blanket, 11, have been living with their legal guardian, grandmother Katherine Jackson.

According to reports, there has been tension between Michael’s kids and his siblings. It has been claimed the rift is a result of his disputed $500 million fortune – which was left to his mom Katherine and his children.

Mark is sceptical about the agenda behind Michael’s siblings’ interest in the upbringing of his kids.

“It appears to be the case that each family member has a different agenda. You’ve got all the brothers and sisters taking an interest in their lives now,” he said. “I think it’s inevitable when they reach 16, or when Katherine dies, that they will say to the rest of the family: ‘Back off, it’s my life.’”

Mark also expressed sympathy for Katherine, who has been given the responsibility of raising the three children.

“It must be hard for Katherine, being an 83-year-old having teenage kids running around. It must be very difficult for her stepping in as a mother when she was always granny, which brings us back to Debbie Rowe,” he said. “I think it’s a good thing she’s coming back on the scene, perfect timing.”

It was recently reported that Paris has been spending time at Debbie’s horse ranch in California.

Paris and her mother are now getting to know each other at the teen’s request.

“Paris has been going through a lot of teenage angst and feels a little bit unloved,” a source told People magazine. “So about three months ago Paris reached out to her mother and told her she wanted to establish a relationship with her. Debbie was open to it, and Katherine Jackson is supportive of the developing relationship.”
