THE shocking documentary about Michael Jackson’s alleged abuse of children has left millions of fans shaken — not least his daughter.
She has been left devastated by the film, which focuses on two men who claim they were sexually abused by the Bad hitmaker as children.
And she now believes the renewed claims against her father could put off movie bosses from casting her because it could be all anyone talks about.
A source close to the aspiring actress said: “Paris had hoped to launch a successful career in acting but fears Leaving Neverland has ruined her chances of it taking off.
“She was in a movie last year but believes the documentary is already scaring directors away because the abuse her father is accused of may put movie goers off her.
“It all comes down to marketing. The worry is that any movies she stars in will be derailed if Michael’s abuse scandal is all people think about when they see her on screen. She wants to act but knows this could affect those plans.”
Part one of the shocking documentary goes out on Channel 4 at 9pm tomorrow, with the conclusion on Thursday evening.
Last year Paris had a small role in crime comedy Gringo, and in July was cast as a singer in forthcoming drama The Space Between with Frasier star Kelsey Grammer.
Earlier this year it was claimed she had been seeking treatment for her mental health.
But she later insisted there had been no “meltdown”, adding: “I’m the happiest and healthiest I’ve been in a long time.”
More recently she has been out and about at the Grammy Awards and an Oscars afterparty.
She appeared to be heading off on holiday on Friday when she was seen leaving her LA home with a suitcase.
If there was ever a week for her to get away from it all, it’s this one.

Kylie is into metal
KYLIE MINOGUE kicked off the Australian leg of her Golden tour in appropriate style.
The singer looked sensational in a metallic dress as she posed on the balcony of her hotel in Sydney ahead of her first of two gigs in the city.
Kylie wanted to take the mammoth tour to her home country after kicking it off in the UK in September last year.
She will be back among us in the summer with dates at Glastonbury, Blenheim Palace, the Eden Project, Brighton, London and elsewhere.
1975? IT WAS A PROFITABLE YEAR
THE 1975 are probably still celebrating picking up two Brit Awards a fortnight ago – they can easily afford to.
Matty Healy, Adam Hann, Ross MacDonald and George Daniel raked in £2.1million during the last financial year.
Accounts filed by their companies The 1975 Productions and The 1975 Touring show that they earned £1.6million after expenses – or £4,400 a day. No doubt the coffers were boosted by ridiculously titled second album I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It, which went platinum in the UK and hit No1 in the US following its release in 2016.
Then there was their extensive tour of Mexico, Canada and the US in 2017.
Over the past six years, The 1975’s accounts show that they have racked up £4.6million in assets.
The champers is on them.
Shirt just a bit big, Hailey?
She wore the yellow number to the Americans in Paris party at Paris Fashion Week. Her solo outing, while Justin stayed in the US, came a day after her actor uncle Billy Balwin said she should have waited longer before getting hitched.
Backdraft star Billy said: “I love them as a couple and would’ve loved to see them get married if they waited a couple more years.”
He maybe shouldn’t expect an invite to their long-awaited wedding party this summer.

One week after Lady Gaga picked up Best Original Song at the Oscars, it has emerged theatre producers are putting together a stage adaptation of the showbiz story.
In an exclusive chat at Sunday night’s WhatsOnStage Awards in London, George Stiles – who composed Mary Poppins The Musical – said: “There have been a lot of people developing the stage musical.
“People I know very well have been developing it behind the scenes. The fact this movie has come out has changed everything, though. It’s a brilliant story and you can endlessly reinvent it.”
As well as an Oscar, last year’s critically-acclaimed film won awards at the Grammys, Golden Globes and Baftas, and made more than£160million at the box office.
Janet Gaynor was the leading lady in the original film in 1937, followed by Judy Garland in 1954, Barbra Streisand in 1976 and then Gaga.
Bradley Cooper – who played rock star Jackson Maine in the current film – and Gaga gave a “steamy” performance at the Oscars of award-winning single Shallow, which went viral after viewers suggested their on-stage chemistry was more than an act.
Theatre bosses will have to hope the stage show causes just as much of a buzz.

“For me, it’s important that we recognise female talent in an industry that’s so male-dominated. I can’t wait to get in the room with all-female producers, writers, artists and engineers and make music.”
Gem and Arg on a roll again

The Sun revealed the shocking messages Arg sent Gemma after she kicked him to the kerb.
She cancelled a make-or-break holiday to Portugal over the weekend but insiders told me she relented when Arg begged her to go to Paris with him.
Word of advice, Gemma. Run for the hills.
