Paris Jackson is finally getting help for alcohol abuse in rehab after an epic downward spiral — but her famous family fears the scathing new documentary about her father could push her over the edge, RadarOnline.com can exclusively report.
"The family is absolutely horrified by this, especially during a time when Paris is so fragile," a source exclusively told RadarOnline.com of the Leaving Neverland film, which premieres this week at the Sundance Film Festival.
"Paris is so vocal about this, but it is so painful for her because she remembers her father hanging out with young boys. She always thought it was strange, which is why this really hits her hard," explained the source.
While the 20-year-old has always defended her late father against child molestation claims and accusers, it's not easy for her to deal with the controversy — especially in her current state.
"She believes her father never did these things and doesn't understand why they keep trying to bring this back," continued the insider.
And while the family is extremely concerned about Paris' reaction to the film, they are also worried about how it will affect Michael's ailing mother Katherine Jackson, 88.
"They won't even let her see it. This is something that could send her to the grave," said the source.
