MJ's 13-Year-old Daughter

RECRUITED by Lingerie Football League

10/19/2011 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1018_PARIS_DOC_launch_ex
Michael Jackson's 13-year-old football playing daughter is being recruited to be the face of an organization that swears it's helping break down barriers for women ... problem is, it's the Lingerie Football League.

TMZ has learned ... the LFL took notice when Paris Jackson became the first female in her L.A. private school to join the flag football team earlier this month ... and fired off a letter to the MJ Estate in the hopes PJ would be the spokesperson for the league's "youth program."

In the letter, obtained by TMZ, LFL Commissioner Mitchell S. Mortaza acknowledges a "lack of options for competitive female football" ... and says the league will "be introducing youth clinics across the country to introduce the game of football to young ladies at an earlier stage in life."

Mortaza adds, "We ... would like to invite Paris to become the spokesperson for the LFL's youth program and perhaps start training for a future football career in the LFL when she reaches the age of 18."

LFL officials tell us no one in the youth program will wear lingerie.

Mitchell makes a good point about the lack of football options for girls, but is a league that parades adult women around in their underwear really the right fit for mentoring KIDS????

We gotta ask ...

The people saying that it's inappropriate are not will versed in this topic. If you're ever watched am LFL game, you'd know that these women PLAY HARD, REAL FOOTBALL. So it's ok to watch girls in bikinis swim, skimpy shorts run, mini shirts with boobs bouncing play tennis, volleyball, etc., but you attack the weird "lingerie" to something, and it's bad? Fire one, they're not actually wearing lingerie. Second, instead of expanding energy saying the LFL is bad, try and get that damn "Toddlers in Tiaras" off the air. Talk about inappropriate!

I think they see how beautiful she is and they want to exploit that to make money....Lingerie Football League should not be trying to recruit minors.

Again, another way to objectify women- as if the NFL cheerleaders aren't bad enough.... geez... How about a Men's Lingerie or MONG (Male Thong) Football League? Would be a nice view when they formed their huddle. Let them show some skin- the women will love it- Bring it!

If Paris is or wants to be spokes person for this youth football league and there is nothing more to it then that then if she wants to do it she should,,
She seems like a very smart young adult and i do not think she has dreams at 18 of being on a LFL.
If she is going to be around any of the adults that are in the LFL then I do not think it would be wise for her to be spokesperson.
But..the more you tell kids NO the more they want to do it.If you show them it's there choice and it's no big deal then they will always make a better decision.

96.3341% of the people writing in to whine are people that are jealous that they never got invited to make BIG $$$$$. & I am sure for obvious reasons to. It is sad when we see all these negative people here that Are just plain jealous. It be a mighty ugly thing that jealousy.

Being bullied into the limelight destroyed her father. Having never been given enen a moment to just be a kid, he tried to recapture it until his unfortunate dead. This beautiful child should be spending the next years being protected from the press, going to school and other activities appropriate for a 14 year old who is still in very difficult stages of grief. If she is interested in sports, how about gymnastics, dance, soccer, lacrosse, feild hockey? Getting a normal education, take time to grow up> Go to College??? Of course she'll be a "knockout" when she GROWS UP!!! What's the big rush?? And is this "league" is so wholesome, what does lingerie have to do with id except to give pedifiles?? Leave her alone to heal and find a path in this world that was denied her father. I grew as a great fan of all the Jacksons, Now as a mother of talented the sons, it breaks my heart that his legacy will end with those last horrible years of a desperately lonely man. He was trying in his way to save his children from the public frenzy. There will always be unanswered here but as a mom...I pray the strong women caring for these lovely children will continue to stand strong. God bless andprrotect them all.

She is 13 and too smart and too rich to even get involved with these sleaze balls, the men that run it and the tramps that play it. The wolves are out and they are watching her. The same perverts on this site who salivating over a 13yr old are same one who got on her and crucified her father for what they thought he did to 13 yr old boy, which nothing

It's good that they want Paris to be a spokesperson for females that are interested in football BUT not cool when your organization is known for having grown women parading around in booty shorts and cut off shirts playing the sport. They also want her to play when she becomes legal, WTH, that sound likes pedophile-like intentions because you actually see a young teenage girl with LFL but try to control your position by saying she can do the youth program they are building and they will not be wearing the actual "lingerie".
