Prince Jackson & Blanket Jackson Make Rare Appearance In Jackson Family Photo

It was a family affair for the Jacksons last week! Michael Jackson’s family posted a photo to the Jackson’s Facebook page from a rare gathering in Las Vegas to honor what would have been his 65th birthday. In the photo, Michael’s 26-year-old son Prince Jackson and 21-year-old son Bigi “Blanket” Jackson posed alongside their Uncle Jackie Jackson, who was accompanied by wife Emily Besselink and his 9-year-old twin sons Jaylen and River and 41-year-old daughter Brandi Jackson. “A special family gathering @michaeljackson’s Blue Sapphire Birthday Celebration,” the Jackson family’s caption read. The event was held at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino and co-hosted by Michael’s estate and Cirque de Soleil, the performance company behind the “Michael Jackson: ONE Show.” Blanket’s appearance at the event was a rare one, as the family has mainly kept him out of the public eye since his father’s death in 2009.
