Paris Jackson is the 19-year-old daughter of the late pop superstar, Michael Jackson. The King of Pop left us back in 2009 and Paris is his only daughter with Debbie Rowe. The 19-year-old is an activist and an actress and recently she took to her Instagram to share a picture of her brother, Prince Michael “Blanket” Jackson II.
Prince Michael, also known as Blanket, has pretty much stayed away from the spotlight.
But he made an appearance with his sister and their close friend, Omer Bhatti.
Prince Michael II is affectionately known as ‘Blanket’ because that was how Michael Jackson introduced his newborn son to the world.
It was in Berlin’s Adlon Hotel near the Brandenburg Gate where Michael Jackson dangled his newborn son in a blanket from the balcony. That video soon became viral and became one of the lasting images of Michael and his son.
While Paris and her twenty-year-old brother, Prince Michael Jr., have been regularly in the spotlight, it is Blanket who has stayed away from the public eye.
No one has seen much of Blanket since 2009 and now fans around the world can get a glimpse of the Jackson family. It was in a photo on Paris’ Instagram where she could be seen with Blanket and close friend, Omer Bhatti.
The caption read: ‘happy Christmas from ours to yours #brahdas.’ The photo shows Blanket in his signature long, black hair and also in a grey Marvel tee shirt.
It was last month when Blanket’s grandmother, Katherine Jackson, released custodianship of Blanket. Katherine was appointed as joint guardian with their cousin TJ Jackson back in 2012 but now that Blanket has reached adolescence, Katherine (who is now 87) is stepping down from that position.
After that, Blanket’s 89-year-old grandfather, Joe Jackson, posted a heartwarming video to his grandchildren.
In the video, he said: ‘Hello, Blanket! This is Joe Jackson. You’re like your father. Now I understand why your father had you wear masks all the time ’cause news people was bothering him so much and he tried to disguise you as much as possible. But I want you to stay healthy and stay off those bikes! Don’t ride, now. But anyway, tell your brothers I said hello and stay clean and healthy and see a lot of movies if you can, good movies of course and be like me – be tough, be tough in a good way. You’ll live a long time. Above all, I love you all. Take care, man, you be good. I’ll see you next time I come to LA. Okay? Adios.’
