But now the daughter of legendary singer Michael Jackson has truly taken the Internet by surprise, taking to Instagram on Christmas Day and posting a picture of….. HER BROTHER!
Indeed, it’s the rarest of rare occasions on which we get to see the 15-year old third child of Jackson, as he typically shuns the spotlight and attempts to live a normal life
As normal a life as possible for someone commonly referred to as “Blanket,” that is.
The last time we saw Blanket was back in April when Paris posted a Snapchat update on her sibling, giving us a look at Blanket just chilling with some friends.
For the record, the identity of Blanket biological mother (a surrogate) remains unknown.
But we do know that Blanket was seven years old when his father died on June 25, 2009.
And we also know he hasn’t always been so close to Paris or other members of his famous, occasionally controversial family
The source of Paris’ beef in the past actually centered around the treatment of her younger brother, specifically by grandmother Katherine Jackson, who has been accused of neglecting poor Blanket.
In October, questions abounded over whether Blanket had been left without a guardian.
Only in high school, the teenager is in need of, you know, someone to actually care for him.
And while Katherine had been placed in legal charge of her grandson, she’s 87 years old and spends a chunk of her time in London.. As a result, Blanket’s Aunt Rebbie and Uncle T.J. have assumed the bulk of the child-rearing responsibilities.
