Paris Jackson is reportedly putting her foot down and refusing to spread the message of Jehovah's Witnesses. Paris and her brother, Prince Michael, would go door-to-door in order to share the word with others but have not done so for several months.
"Paris resented going door-to-door for Jehovah's Witnesses, even though it was what her grandmother wanted. So, she dug her heels in a few months back and told Katherine she just doesn't want to do it anymore– and Paris and Michael haven't done it since," a source close to the family told Radar Online.
The two have been brought up in the tradition and have been attending services with their grandmother, Katherine, who fully believes in the Jehovah's Witnesses lifestyle and message.
"Paris just feels she's more grown up now, and while she's not renouncing her Christian values, she just doesn't want to go door-to-door for Jehovah's Witness forever. She has her own goals in life now and her own dreams. She wants to continue with her acting career, loves playing the guitar and would welcome the opportunity to follow in her father Michael's footsteps into pop music," the source added.
In recent months, Paris has been doing things in her own way. In addition to joining the cheerleading squad and cutting her hair in a new style, Paris met with her birth mother, Debbie Rowe. The 15-year-old even celebrated her birthday with Rowe, which had not happened in years.
Paris and her brothers are currently in the custody of both Katherine and their cousin, Tito Joe "T.J." Jackson. T.J. oversees the kids' education and household staff, while Katherine tends to the financial aspect of the kids' lives.
"She is eager to simply enjoy her great relationship with these children, while deeding over some of the stressors that go hand-in-hand with being a guardian," Katherine's attorney wrote to the court, according to the L.A. Times.
