Michael Jackson's son, Bigi, is a 19-year-old who, unlike his sister Paris and brother Prince, doesn't like to appear in public too much. Bigi, formerly known as Blanket, whose real name is Prince Jackson II, nevertheless decided to take part in an interview for Good Morning Britain, and talk about The Heal Los Angeles Foundation and his father. Jackson’s children organized a Halloween party at the home where Michael also lived, to raise funds for a foundation founded by Prince, inspired by his father’s humanitarian work.
"There's a lot of history here. In this house and studio. That’s what he was all about. That’s what each of us wants to do: make things that people can enjoy and hopefully benefit their lives," Bigi explained.

He was only seven years old when Michael died of a heart attack caused by a cocktail of pills prescribed to him by a doctor.
He and his older brother and sister, Prince (24) and Paris (23) were raised by grandmother Katherine Jackson. Bigi currently lives in a house in Calabasas, California, which he bought in March last year. In an interview he gave in 2012, he said he has no intention of making music.

"My dad was a great dancer, but I am not. I can't sing or dance. I want to be a director because it’s fun for me and I love making videos when I’m with friends or relatives," he said back then.
Let us remind you, Bigi is best known to the public because of the scene that the whole world still remembers today. When presenting his children to the public, the King of Pop lifted his child, 9-month-old Bigi, into the air on the balcony, to which the public reacted angrily and with condemnation.
