Michael Jackson’s children are all grown up and have come along way from the disguised kids the world once knew them to be. Prince, Paris, and Blanket Jackson have developed in front of the world’s eyes and are now ready to take the world by storm.
Blanket recently celebrated his 18th birthday in a major way—by purchasing his first home! The baby of the Jackson clan is now a neighbor to some of Hollywood’s biggest stars.
Michael Jackson’s son, Blanket, buys mansion in Calabasas
The youngest of Jackson’s children decided to treat himself to an 18th birthday gift with a $2.5 million home. The mansion sits in Calabasas, in a gated community near his beloved grandmother, Katherine Jackson. The Blast reports that Blanket is also in the same neighborhood as super producer, Dr. Dre!
Dre isn’t his only famous neighbor, Blanket will also live near the likes of the famous Kardashian family and former Playboy bunny, Kendra Wilkinson.
According to Variety, the new house has six bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms. The 6,400 square foot mansion features a three-car garage, three fireplaces, a master bedroom with double spa-style baths, a steam shower and a soaking tub. He’ll also be able to get a workout in with a small gym area included in the home also!
As any Jackson kid would need, the home will be guarded 24/7 by neighborhood security guards.
In addition to the new digs, Blanket celebrated his birthday with his siblings with dinner at a sushi restaurant on Feb. 21. “Thank you @yamashirola and @chefvallerie for helping us celebrate Bigi’s 18th bday,” Prince captioned an Instagram Story of the sushi.
Blanket and his siblings have strived to live normal and independent lives since Michael Jackson’s death
All three of Jackson’s children are the beneficiaries of his estate. Since his death in 2009, Jackson’s estate has raked in over $1.5 billion. But, the once sheltered kids have made it their mission to live normal lives.
Blanket is the last of his siblings to buy a home. He’s been splitting time between his grandmother’s home and his cousin’s home until he became of age. In 2017, his older sister Paris bought a $2 million home in Topanga Canyon. His older brother Prince paid $2.2 million for his own home in Rancho Palos Verdes.
The Jackson kids have worked in entertainment, trying to follow in the footsteps of their famous family. Paris has acted and released music while Prince has worked behind the scenes on the business end. Blanket has opted for a more private life outside of the spotlight attending regular public school.
Despite being the “shy one” out of the bunch, Blanket shares a close relationship with his siblings. He joined Prince in starting their own YouTube channel and show, Film Family. The brothers focus on movie reviews and have already reviewed films including Avengers: Endgame, Marriage Story, Gemini Man. They recently reviewed the 2020 Oscars and are now discussing the films on the film festival circuit.
