Paris Jackson has signed with Sir Rod Stewart's manager.
The 18-year-old star - who is the daughter of late music icon Michael Jackson - was reportedly the hot topic of conversation at a recent lunch meeting between the 'Maggie May' hitmaker, pop star Cyndi Lauper and talent manager Arnold Stiefel, who were discussing his newest recruit.
A source told The New York Post's PageSix column: "They were taking a breather after announcing their upcoming joint summer tour, with Stewart's longtime manager.
"The conversation included Lauper's hit 'Kinky Boots' and Stewart's recent knighthood ... but the bulk of it focused on Stiefel's newest client, Paris."
According to the eye witness, the trio's chat ended with the 72-year-old rocker and 'Girls Just Wanna Have Fun' hitmaker, 63, wishing Stiefel well with the offers Paris' has been getting.
They added: "Along with reminiscences of Paris' superstar dad, Stewart and Lauper also wished Stiefel luck with the barrage of offers coming Paris' way."
It's still unsure if the aspiring actress and model plans on following in the footsteps of her 'Thriller' hitmaker father by launching a music career.
It was previously reported that she is "for now, a model, an actress, a work in progress" and "plays a few instruments, writes and sings songs ... but isn't sure if she'll ever pursue a recording contract".
It comes after it was revealed Paris will be make her acting debut in American drama series 'Star', which is created by filmmaker Lee Daniels.
According to TMZ, the blonde beauty met with Daniels last week for a screen test and after a successful reading is reportedly "already in Atlanta filming" the 'Empire' spin-off show.
It was also claimed it's "unclear how big the role is or how many episodes she'll be shooting."
Paris' acting dreams come after she said during an appearance on the 'Ellen DeGeneres Show' in 2011 that she aspired to be like her late father, who starred in a number of movies.
She said at the time: "When I was really little. My dad was in the movie, 'Moonwalker', and I knew he could sing really well but I didn't know he could act.
"I saw that and I said, 'Wow, I want to be just like him.'"
And Paris - whose mother is Debbie Rowe - looks set to start conquering Hollywood as she has also been approached by a number of modelling agencies, as well as, several high-profile brands who feel she is the ideal candidate to become the face of their products.
