Michael Jackson‘s legacy lives on in his kids, especially when it comes to his youngest, Blanket. In fact, in a video post dedicated to the King of Pop’s third child (whose real name is Prince Michael Jackson II), Joe Jackson revealed that the 15-year-old is the most like MJ.
Alongside the rare video upload (above), the Jackson patriarch wrote:
“To my grandson Blanket. You are like your father in so many ways, and you remind me most of him. Enjoy life, see lots of good movies, stay healthy and remember, I do love you!”
The industry vet expressed a similar sentiment in his rambling video, as he elaborated as to why the Thriller‘s singer “tried to disguise [him] as much as possible.” Although, the 89-year-old does seem a bit confused as he urged Blanket to stay off “bikes” and to tell his “brothers” he said “hello.”
For starters, Blanket has a brother (Prince Jackson) and a sister (Paris Jackson). Not to mention, it was 20-year-old Prince who ended up in the hospital after a motorcycle accident. Still, it wouldn’t be the first time a grandparent has confused facts regarding their grandkids.
Nonetheless, Joe did leave Blanket with some words of support, as he concluded:
“Be like me: Be tough, be tough in a good way and you’ll live a long time. Above all, I love you all. Take care man, be good and I see you next time I come to LA, OK? Adios.”
The controversial talent manager also took to Twitter to share a sweet pic of himself and Blanket (below).
Wow, Blanket has really grown up!!
While we’re not sure what inspired Joe to reach out to the teenager, we’re glad to see that he’s making an effort.
