Michael Jackson‘s youngest son has just turned 18. Do you feel as old as I do? Blanket Jackson, who changed his name to Bigi in 2015, celebrated this amazing milestone by having a party with his siblings Prince and Paris Jackson
“My little brother is a legal adult today,” Paris wrote in an Instagram post that features pictures new and old. “What the f—. I used to change his diapers. This is such a trip. Proud of the handsome, intelligent, insightful, funny, and kind young man he has become. He likes privacy so that’s all I gotta say. HBD lil bro.”
Prince, older than Bigi by 5 years, posted pictures on social media of the celebration dinner that they had. One he captioned, “Thank you @yamashirola and @chefvallerie for helping us celebrate Bigi’s 18th bday!!”
The dinner took place at the Japanese restaurant Yamashiro in Los Angeles.
A source with People told them that the two brothers were pretty close.
“Prince and Bigi are best friends,” a family friend told the large magazine. “They share a lot of interests like science and sci-fi.”
Bigi himself doesn’t have a public social media account but his brother Prince does. In fact, Prince has a YouTube channel called Film Family where he, Bigi, and their cousin Taj Jackson get together and review movies and discuss their favorite films. The first video they released was one that discussed the major movie release of last year Avengers Endgame.
Their most recent video was one that covered the internet obsession (especially when it was very ugly) Sonic the Hedgehog.
Prince explained in an interview with Access Holywood that they are so close because only they can fully understand the circumstances of their upbringing.
“Just like in that situation you have a bond with them because nobody else really understands how you grew up or how you were raised. But they 100 percent understand you and it’s a very raw, unfiltered relationship,” Prince explained, reports E! News. “And especially you know when there’s a lot of people who may not have the best intentions for you, it’s very easy to get caught up in a lot of fake personalities.”
“So, I think it’s only made us stronger as siblings to have that bond, to have that very real relationship and raw relationship with each other, that we know it’s always love.”
Really, it is admirable that the three siblings stay so close to one another. And, it is great to see the three celebrating an important milestone with Bigi as he enters the world of adulthood.
Hopefully, the three will continue to be close and maybe we will get more movie reviews.
