Michael Jackson's son Blanket all grown up: See famous baby the singer dangled over balcony nowby Emman 11/06/2015 15:26:00 0 comments 374 Views
Michael Jackson sparked outrage when he appeared to dangle his baby son Blanket over his hotel balcony in front of photographers in 2002.
But now the star's son is all grown up - and thanks to his recent yearbook photo, we have got a glimpse of what he looks like now.
A shocking 13 years after THAT incident, when he hit headlines with a snap of him dangling over a balcony in his father's arms at just nine-months-old, Blanket is a teenager.
With long dark hair, and smiling happily in front of the camera, he bears little resemblance to his father.
Now the star has shunned his real name Prince Michael II, AND his nickname Blanket, for Bigi Jackson.
The 13-year-old is wearing a red polo t-shirt on the page of The Buckley School's yearbook.
Bigi was reportedly home-schooled until last year, and is now in the seventh grade in the Sherman Oaks, California school - the same school Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian attended.
A source told Radar Online: "Michael would be proud of Blanket. He is really sweet, funny and helpful. He volunteers to help the younger kids and he is really good with them."
And compared to his siblings, Bigi is apparently "quiet".
The source added: "He is definitely the opposite of Paris and Prince and he is more on the quiet side."
Bigi is under the co-conservatorship of his grandmother Katherine and his cousin TJ, and has been ever since Michael's death in 2009.
His father always claimed Bigi was born from a surrogate mother.
Michael later apologised for the balcony dangling incident.
“I offer no excuses for what happened,” he said in a statement. “I got caught up in the excitement of the moment. I would never intentionally endanger the lives of my children.”
