Washington: Michael Jackson’s mother Katherine is “disgusted” after the America’s Lingerie Football League approached her 13-year-old granddaughter Paris to be a spokeswoman for the company’s fledgling youth programme.
The organisation, which sees women play in their underwear, approached Paris, which sent her guardian, grandmother Katherine into a rage.
“Katherine views this as a disgusting attack on a minor,” a family insider told RadarOnline.
“A teenage spokeswoman for a lingerie league? That’s just creepy and downright offensive. There is a hell storm inside the family at the moment,” the insider added.
Katherine is the matriarch of the Jackson clan, and is the custodian of Jackson’s three children, Prince, Paris and Blanket.
The league’s commissioner Mitchell Mortaza then sent a letter to the Jackson estate asking her to sign on as a youth spokesperson.
“(The person signing up for the position) will be introducing youth clinics across the country to introduce the game of football to young ladies at an earlier stage in life,” the letter read.
“We would like to invite Paris to become the spokesperson for the LFL’s youth programme and perhaps start training for a future football career in the LFL when she reaches the age of 18,” it added.
