    Paris Jackson

    Paris was given the name of the French capital, where she was conceived. She is Debbie Rowe’s youngest child and the middle child of singer Michael Jackson. Her godparents are also Elizabeth Taylor and Macaulay Culkin just like her elder brother Prince and she also attended The Buckley School in Sherman Oaks where she participated in softball, cheerleading, and flag football.

In 2010, Jackson, her brothers, their grandmother Katherine, and their cousins participated in an interview with Oprah Winfrey about life after her father’s passing. At the 2010 Grammy Awards, she and her brother Prince jointly accepted their father’s Lifetime Achievement Award.

    Prince “Blanket” Michael Jackson: Life And Career

    Prince “Blanket” Michael Jackson

    Michael Jackson’s third and youngest child who is also called Prince but is better known for his nickname “Blanket” is attending the same high school as his elder brother and sister in Los Angeles. Not much is known about him as he likes to keep a low profile and if US weekly is to be believed he’s the “quiet one”. As reported by Newsweek, the 19-year-old enjoys video games and has even taken up martial arts. 

    Jackson made his debut on television in the 2003 documentary ‘Living with Michael Jackson’. His father revealed the meaning of his nickname, Blanket, in the documentary, which is to “blanket” or “cover” someone with love. When Jackson was a baby, his father Michael tried to flaunt him to a swarm of followers waiting outside the Hotel Adlon in Berlin, Germany, by dangling him from a balcony. This caused outrage among the public. Later, his father came to regret his error. The balcony incident, however, has been widely mocked and made fun of by the media and other celebrities. According to multiple stories that arose in 2015, Jackson no longer preferred to go by the moniker “Blanket.” Numerous online sources made this claim, and even the 2015 Buckley School yearbook he used the name Bigi Jackson. He made this choice after being teased for the nickname “Blanket” for years.
