Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr. biography
This young man is the eldest of Michael Jackson kids. His siblings are Paris and Prince Michael Jackson II, "Bigi".
He came into this world in Los Angeles, California, United States, on February 13, 1997. As of 2021, he is 24 years old.
The nickname of this celebrity child is Prince, which, coincidentally, is his younger brother's first name. However, his brother used to go by Blanket and now chose to go by Bigi.
His mother, Debbie Rowe, used to be married to the late pop star, but she divorced him in 1999. Eventually, she got custody of both her children - Prince and Paris.
Joseph spent his childhood on his father's estate, Neverland Ranch, where he was taken care of by multiple nannies and nurses.
In 2010, he and his sister Paris accepted their father's Lifetime Achievement Award at that year's Grammy Awards.
Is Prince Michael Jackson biological son?
Even though he is known to the public as Michael Jackson son, some people have questioned this fact. At times, debates about whether he is the pop star's biological son arise.
However, Prince does not pay attention to the rumours and has a hard time understanding why this should matter. According to him, whenever he is asked about the subject of his biological father, he asks what difference it makes. He is especially annoyed by people who are not involved in his life asking such sensitive questions.
What is Prince Jackson doing now?
Even though he has not acquired such fame as his superstar father, Prince is still involved in the show business. In 2013, he made his first attempt to become a successful media personality.
That year, he was a guest correspondent at Entertainment Tonight. In the interview, he talked about how much he wanted to become a part of the show business and had many different plans. As he stated, he wanted to be an actor, producer, director, and showrunner.
Even though he is not a musician, he respects this industry a lot. He said it was a big part of his life since he grew in a musical family, and it shaped his conscience. Apparently, his famous dad would often express interest in what he wanted to do in the future, and his answers were directing and producing.
He graduated from the prestigious educational institution - the Buckley School in Sherman Oaks in May 2015. In May 2019, he graduated with honours from Loyola Marymount University, which is in Los Angeles.
His hobbies are motorcycles and travelling, and he even went to Tokyo together with his brother, Bigi. Additionally, he is a huge dog lover and social activist.
However, dancing is not his forte - he admitted that he does not have such passion and talent for dancing as his father used to.
