The late singers youngest son Blanket Jackson made a rare public appearance this weekend to celebrate his brother Prince Jacksonat his graduation from Loyola Marymount University. There, the siblings posed for photos, which features a giddy Prince clad his cap and gown and throwing up a peace sign.
“I met so many people and learned so much that the experience alone is worth it,” the newly minted college grad, 22, captioned the shot on Instagram. “Honestly I cant tell you if all of it was worth it yet but I am proud of my degree as I believe it is a testament to my dedication and discipline. Im thankful for LMUs education of a whole person and the implementation of Jesuit values because I believe they inspire graduates like me to continue to change the world for the better.”
While his brother and his sister Paris Jackson have begun to embrace the spotlight, Blanket, 17, has rarely been seen in public since his father died in 2009. The teen, born Prince Michael Jackson II, attends a private school in L.A. and is under the guardianship of his cousin T.J. Jackson. (All three kids were under the care of their grandmother, Katherine Jackson, until 2017.)
Prince Jackson celebrated a milestone over the weekend, graduating from Loyola Marymount University.
To fans, perhaps his most memorable moment was when, at just 9-months-old, he was held over the railing of a balcony by his dad. Though Michael was just trying to show off his son, whose face was covered by a towel, the moment caused outrage—and even the plot of a 2003 Law & Order episode.
