Michael Jackson’s son Blanket aka Bigi is growing up before our eyes!
Over the weekend, Blanket’s older brother Prince posted a rare photo of their night out at the movies. He captioned the group shot, which has Blanket smiling in the middle, “#endgame.”
It looks like Prince and Blanket are fans of the “Avengers” movies, since they were watching the last film of the Marvel franchise. Their sister Paris was absent from the outing.
More than a year ago, Paris shared a photo of Blanket wearing a Marvel shirt while celebrating the holidays. She wrote, “happy christmas from ours to yours #brahdas.”
While Paris and Prince are out in the public eye more, Blanket, 17, has kept himself out of the spotlight, choosing a more private lifestyle since the death of their father in 2009. A source previously told People magazine in 2017, “[Blanket] has had the most problems adjusting after Michael died. He acted very lost and extremely upset.”
While he is still “shy around people he doesn’t know,” the insider noted that he is “confident” at school, where he reportedly goes by Bigi.
According to the outlet, the teen's life has revolved around grades, movies, friends, and family.
Blanket and Prince’s public outing comes a few months after HBO’s explosive documentary “Leaving Neverland,” in which Wade Robson and James Safechuck accuse Michael of sexual abuse.
While Blanket and Prince haven’t publicly responded to the allegations made in the documentary, Paris tweeted, “there’s nothing i can say that hasn’t already been said in regards to defense… i’m just tryna get everyone to chill out and go with the flow, be mellow and think about the bigger picture. that’s me.”
The Jackson estate has vehemently denied the allegations, even filing a $100-million lawsuit against HBO, calling the documentary “yet another lurid production in an outrageous and pathetic attempt to exploit and cash in on Michael Jackson.” The family said in a statement, “Wade Robson and James Safechuck have both testified under oath that Michael never did anything inappropriate toward them. Safechuck and Robson, the latter a self-proclaimed ‘master of deception’, filed lawsuits against Michael’s Estate, asking for millions of dollars. Both lawsuits were dismissed.”
