Lovestruck Paris Jackson’s relatives are demanding the teen sign a prenup before she walks down the aisle, bent on protecting her father’s estate — which could soon swell to a whopping $2 billion!
“That’s Michael Jackson’s legacy,” a family friend told The National ENQUIRER, “and there’s no way they want any part of it at risk!”
According to a recent report, Sony — which owns half of a huge music catalog with the estate — is in early talks that would allow either side to buy the entire collection. The catalog contains nearly one million copyrights, including hits by Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga, plus nuggets like “Stand By Me” and its crown jewel, 251 songs by The Beatles. Its estimated value is at least $2 billion.
As The ENQUIRER has reported, the King of Pop’s daughter hopes to wed her beau, rising soccer star Chester Castellaw, 18, after she turns 18 next April. She hooked up with Chester, who competed at the Maccabiah Games in Israel in 2013, when she returned to the Jackson estate in Calabasas, Calif., after a long stint at a Utah boarding school.
The union has the blessing of her uncle Jermaine Jackson, who will walk her down the aisle.
But Jermaine and other family members insist Paris and Chester sign a $2 billion prenup before the big day.
The King of Pop’s princess — who was spotted wearing a ring on her left hand in May — wants to wed sooner rather than later.
“Paris is worried about the health of her grandmother, Katherine,” said the insider.
The Jackson family matriarch turned 85 in May, and Paris “wants to be sure Katherine is at the wedding,” added the source.
But family members are wary of a teen marriage because of the girl’s fragile mental state, said the source.
As The ENQUIRER reported, troubled Paris slashed her wrists and guzzled pills in 2013. Relatives also became concerned after she acted crazy in a video clip with Chester, according to a family insider.
“She grabs hold of his face and sings: ‘This is my baby, if you flirt with him, touch him, talk to him, think about him, or even look at him, I will slit your throat!’” the source recalled.
Added the insider: “It’s a dilemma. Family members want Paris to get going on her prenup, but they’re walking on eggshells. They don’t want to get her angry or, worse, have her cut them off.”
