Last month, we reported that Paris Jackson and Cara Delevingne are dating.

There still hasn’t been an official announcement from the couple, but it’s pretty clear from their recent public outings that Paris and Cara are an item.

And unfortunately, it seems not everyone is thrilled with the news.

According to Radar Online, Paris’ beloved grandparents, Joe and Katherine Jackson, have made it quite clear that they do not approve of her relationship with Cara.

"Joe and Katherine are mortified by Paris’ romance with Cara because it goes against everything they believe, which is that a woman should be with a man," an insider tells the site.

Yes, it seems Joe and Katherine’s disapproval is the result of old-fashioned homophobia.

But they also have some backup rationales on deck, because apparently wanting "what’s best" for Paris means making absolutely certain that she’s unhappy.

"They both love Paris so much and they want what’s best for her, but they feel that Cara’s fast-paced lifestyle is too much for her," the source adds.

Sounds like they’re ready to use Paris’ struggles with addiction to justify why she shouldn’t be with someone who enjoys clubbing as much as Cara.

The problem with that is, while Cara does seem to enjoy partying, there’s no indication that her definition of the word involves drinking or drugs.

We’re not saying she’s completely straight-edge, but the woman is photographed extensively just about everytime she leaves the club, and we can’t recall a time she was caught slurring or stumbling.

Fortunately, Paris is having none of Joe and Katherine’s nonsense:

"Paris isn’t listening to anyone when it comes to her relationship with Cara," the source says.

"She is following her heart and believes that Paris is the one she is meant to be with."

Yes, apparently things are really moving that quickly.

The source says Paris feels a freedom with Cara that she’s never known before.

"Paris is able to be herself around Cara, and that is refreshing to her," the insider adds.

"People around her think she’s fallen completely in love."

So it sounds like old Joe Jackson won’t be getting his way, but don’t feel too bad for the guy.

After all, he’s 1. a huge bigot, and 2. a terrible person beyond that.

So really, this is just a win-win for everyone involved.

Except for Joe. But Joe sucks.
