AceShowbiz - Michael Jackson's son Blanket a.k.a. Prince Michael Jackson II has grown up a lot. The 17-year-old, who is rarely seen in public, unlike his two siblings, looks so much different in a new photo shared by his older brother Prince a.k.a. Michael Joseph Jackson Jr.
The photo was taken at an "Avengers: Endgame" screening with a lot of friends. Paris was seen bending on one knee at one end of the line, while Blanket was standing in the middle of the group. Still rocking his long raven hair, the teenager sported a gray Marvel T-shirt. The two brothers flashed a smile as they posed for the picture.
Fans are loving the picture, with many commenting on how much Blanket has grown up. "Omg blanket is so big," one commented. Another similarly reacted to the photo, "BABY BIGI OMG." Another comment read, "Aww Blanket is there I'm so happy."
Someone else was glad to get an update on Blanket, who is preferred to be called Bigi now after being bulled for years because of his name. "Oh God ! Thank you for giving us news of Bigi i love you so much," the said user added.
Blanket has remained out of the public eye since his father's death in 2009. A family friend once revealed the kids' struggle to adjust their lives after the loss. "The kids live like Michael is constantly looking down upon them," the source told PEOPLE, adding that Blanket "has had the most problems adjusting after Michael died." The source said of Blanket, "He acted very lost and extremely upset."
After enrolling to a Los Angeles private school focused on grades, sports, movies and hanging out with his friends and nearly 30 cousins, Blanket is reportedly "confident" though he's still "shy around people he doesn't know."
It was recently reported that three siblings were fighting to maintain their father's legacy amid resurfacing molestation allegations brought up in HBO's documentary "Leaving Neverland". Words were the Jackson kids were quietly investigating the accusers, Wade Robson and James Safechuck, while preparing to file a lawsuit.
