Michael Jackson children: What happened to Michael Jackson’s kids? Where are they now?

It was Michael Jackson’s birthday over the weekend and the star could have wished for no greater gift than to know his children were happy and healthy. The star was born on August 29, 1958 and was raised to stardom from a young age alongside his eight brothers and sister. Michael’s own difficult childhood and abusive relationship with his father Joe is well-documented. He lavished love and attention on his own children before he suddenly died on June 25, 2009.

Michael Joseph Jackson Jr (commonly known as Prince) was born on February 13, 1997. His sister Paris-Michael Katherine Jackson followed on April 3, 1998. Their mother was former nurse Debbie Rowe, who was briefly MJ’s wife until they divorced in 1999 and she signed over sole custody for $8million.

Jackson’s second son, Prince Michael Jackson II (commonly known as Blanket) was born on February 21, 2002, to an unknown surrogate mother. These days he goes by the name ‘Bigi.’

Two of the siblings maintain high-profile social media lives while one is virtually a recluse.

Bigi Jackson (who is on the far left in the picture below) turned 18 last year and prefers to avoid the limelight.

His sister posted on his birthday, saying she was “proud of the handsome, intelligent, insightful, kind and funny young man he has become. He likes privacy so that’s all I have to say.”

It was reported that upon achieving legal adulthood and independence, Bigi purchased a $2.6million mansion in Calabasas, California. The small city, just outside central Los Angeles, is home to the Kardashians, Will Smith, Drake and Justin Bieber.

Bigi’s older siblings are happy to be in the public eye, with Paris, in particular, building. thriving career as a model, actress and singer-songwriter.

Their close bond is reflected in photographs and the frequent tributes they pay each other.

Earlier this year, Prince wished Paris a happy birthday on April 3 and said: “It’s crazy to think that you’re my sister. You’ve grown and learned so much and I couldn’t be prouder of the woman you are and the path you’re going down. Keep doin what you’re doin you’re so awesome and I hope you have a great day!”

He also referred to their “duality, the yin and the yang,” while she sometimes refers to the two of them as spiritual “twins.”

Paris, in her turn, has said of her older brother: “Greatest big brother and role model a girl could ever hope for… Thanks for being my twin and bestie. I love you for always til the sun is swallowed by darkness and even after.”

She has been busy for the past few years establishing herself as a recording artist, starting in the duo The Sound Flowers with musician, singer and on-off partner Gabriel Glenn since 2018. Last year, she also signed a solo record deal and released her debut single Wilted and album Let Down to critical acclaim.

Her music most recently featured this month on the soundtrack of the film Habit, where she also appears as Jesus. Paris has also appeared in the 2018 movie Gringo and feature in the latest American Horror Story TV series this year.

Paris has spoken openly of her struggles with fame and identity, and mental health. She described suicide attempts and self-harm as a way to deal with her “emotional pain.”

She says he regards herself as black, raised in Afro-American culture by her family. She also presents her sexuality as fluid, refusing to categorise it, but admitting it was a struggle to discuss her sexual identity and awakening during a strict upbringing as a Jehova’s Witness.

Unlike his sister, Prince says he is not cut out for stardom: “I don’t have the voice for singing… and I can’t dance.”

Graduating in 2019 with a degree in business he has remained in the entertainment industry, saying: “I’m looking to become well-rounded as a producer, director, screenwriter and actor.”

The 24-year-old has been with his girlfriend Molly for over four years and the pair frequently appear together on his Instagram page in a series of unashamedly romantic posts.
