In Hollywood, there was no doubt that Michael Jackson, the King of Pop, stood out as one of the most captivating figures. He revolutionized dance moves and created brilliant beats, setting a futuristic path for all future pop artists.
Now, let's meet Bigi Jackson, formerly known as Blanket, who has inherited an impressive set of talents and a striking resemblance to his iconic father. We'll explore the fascinating journey of this extraordinary young person, taking a glimpse into his father's marriages and siblings before delving into his own current ambitions.
Few artists have left such an indelible mark on music history as Michael Jackson. With his electrifying moves and mesmerizing voice, he enchanted the world with countless albums and unforgettable performances throughout his legendary career.
Michael experienced three marriages in his lifetime. In a match seemingly made in heaven, he tied the knot with none other than Lisa-Marie Presley, the daughter of the King of Rock, in 1994. However, their highly publicized union proved to be short-lived, ending in divorce just two years later, leaving the world stunned and saddened by their separation.
Shortly thereafter, Michael's heart found love once more. In 1996, he entered matrimony with Debbie Rowe, a nurse, and a close companion. They were blessed with two children: a son named Michael Joseph Jackson Jr., often called Prince, and a daughter named Paris-Michael Katherine Jackson.
Unfortunately, the bond between Michael Jackson and Debbie Rowe also dissolved, leading to their divorce in 1999.
"Bigi" Jackson, Son of the King of Pop
In his lifetime, Michael entered the bonds of matrimony twice and reportedly fathered two children with Debbie. However, he also had a third child through a surrogate, whose name remains undisclosed. This child was named Prince Michael Jackson II and was born on February 21, 2002, five years after Michael Jr.
It's easy to get confused about the two sons due to a shared family nickname given by their father. The distinction lies in the fact that Michael Jr. is commonly called Prince as a term of endearment, while his younger brother was officially named Prince on his birth certificate. Consequently, both sons are known by different names, with Michael Jr. often referred to as Prince and his younger sibling nicknamed Blanket.
For the majority of his life, Prince Michael Jackson II, also known as Blanket, remained shielded from the public eye. This aura of secrecy surrounding him piqued the world's curiosity, but now we have the privilege of getting to know him better.
Before the world had a chance to meet the person now known as "Bigi," his father kept him concealed under a blanket, hence the nickname. "A blanket is a symbol of love and care," once remarked the King of Pop, explaining the significance behind the moniker.
At the age of 21, Blanket has embraced a new identity. He is now known to the world as "Bigi" Jackson, and he has grown up to look just like his famous father. His smile alone has the power to make Michael Jackson's fans weak at the knees, captivated by his uncanny likeness, especially his eyes and prominent cheekbones.
Reports indicate that Bigi Jackson struggled with the loss of his father. He was just seven years old when Michael passed away, and it's been said that he temporarily lost his voice, remaining silent for a period of time.
What Is Bigi Up To Now?
Bigi Jackson took a unique route separate from his older siblings when it came to pursuing a musical career. Now residing in Calabasas, California, the 21-year-old has ventured into the world of filmmaking.
In the 2012 documentary "Jacksonology: Our Story," Bigi revealed his dream of becoming a director, a path that his late father, Michael Jackson, supposedly encouraged. During his upbringing, Bigi's loved to create small movies at home featuring his siblings and cousins.
Bigi supposedly didn't inherit his father's musical talent, but that worked out well for him because he prefers a more private lifestyle. Nowadays, he's living his dream of being a director. He owns a small production company called King's Son.
Some years back, rumors started swirling that Michael Jackson didn't adopt his children and wasn't their biological father.
TMZ reported on this: "Legal experts tell us Jackson would be presumed the father, but it's not conclusive by any means."
