Paris Jackson Posts Rare Photo Of Brother Blanket For Christmas Message
| Last updated
When your dad was the legendary singer Michael Jackson, it would be hard to stay out of the limelight. While Paris Jackson and her brother Prince Michael Jr have public social media accounts like Instagram and Twitter, their other sibling Prince Michael II - nicknamed Blanket - has remained fairly quiet and out of the public eye.
But a rare photo of the youngest of the three kids has been posted by Paris to celebrate Christmas.

The 19-year-old wrote on Instagram: "happy christmas from ours to yours #brahdas."
Joining the Jackson trio is Omer Bhatti, who has been a friend of theirs since birth. Paris defended calling him her brother after a few people questioned her on social media.
She wrote on Twitter: "Why is everyone losing their fucking minds over this? Do you guys seriously not remember the fact that not only have I known him since birth, we have literally called him our brother many, many, many, many times."
According to People, Blanket has only been photographed in public a few times since his dad's death in 2009 and now goes by the name of BG or Bigi. Another photo of him was recently uploaded by his granddad, Joe Jackson.
That was followed up with a video from the former head of the Jackson 5 empire.
The 89-year-old posted a rambling message to Blanket, saying: "You're like your father. Now I understand why your father had you wear masks all the time, because news people was bothering him so much and he tried to disguise you as much as possible.
"I know what you mean, man. But I want you to stay healthy and stay off those bikes!"
That was a tiny faux pas, considering it was actually Blanket's brother, Prince Michael Jr, who was involved in a minor accident on his motorbike a few weeks ago.
Paris and Prince Michael Jr share the same mother, Debbie Rowe, whereas Blanket's maternal parentage is still unknown. It's understood that Michael Jackson's third kid was conceived via a surrogate, whose identity has remained private ever since Blanket was conceived.
But there's no denying the love shared between the three siblings, with Paris and Prince Michael Jr praising each other and Blanket across various mediums.
Speaking with Today in October, Prince Jr told Natalie Morales: "She's grown so much and she's been able to really step up. I don't really see myself as her older brother.
"We're equal partners when it comes down to it.
"BG is just so mature for his age. It's a pretty strong bond."
