NEW YORK — Blanket Jackson, Michael Jackson’s youngest son, has changed his name. The 13-year-old, who was actually born as Michael Joseph Jackson Jr., informally changed his name to “Bigi” before entering middle school, Radar Online reports.
According to Radar, the teen hated being bullied because he was commonly called Blanket.
Sources tell Radar that he said the name “sounded so stupid,” and he resented his father for giving it to him.
Michael Jackson died June 25, 2009.
Jackson has another son, 18-year-old Prince Michael Jackson II, and daughter, 17-year-old Paris-Michael Jackson.
