Michael Jackson passed away in June 2009 from a cardiac arrest caused by an accidental overdose of medications, leaving behind three children: Paris, Blanket (also known as ‘Bigi’), and Prince Jackson. On August 29, 2023, which would have been their late father’s 65th birthday,
Blanket and Prince were seen in Las Vegas after attending the Cirque du Soleil’s ‘Michael Jackson ONE’ show at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. Paris, the third sibling, was on tour with the rock band Incubus.
Prince, in blue jeans and a gray t-shirt, interacted with fans, receiving a drawing of Michael and reciprocating the gesture with a hug. Blanket, rarely seen in public, wore black clothes, and fans noted his resemblance to Michael.
In a televised interview in 2021, Blanket, also known as Prince Michael Jackson II, expressed his passion for environmentalism and urged people to address climate change.
Born on February 21, 2002, via a surrogate mother, Blanket is the only biological child of Michael Jackson. According to reports, a Mexican nurse named Helena allegedly served as the surrogate, chosen by Michael, with a separate egg donor. During the 2021 Prince’s Thriller Night Halloween party, Blanket emphasized the historical significance of their home and studio, reflecting his father’s essence. He highlighted the family’s desire to create things for the enjoyment and benefit of people.
Without plans to pursue a musical career like his father, Blanket maintains a low profile and resides in Calabasas, California, in a house purchased in March 2020.
