Michael Jackson’s youngest son has rarely been seen in public since the singer’s death in 2009.
But Blanket Jackson came out of hiding over the weekend to attend the college graduation of his older brother, Prince Jackson.
Prince, 22, commemorated graduating from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles by sharing several photos to Instagram – including one of Blanket sharing in the celebrations.
“I wish I could thank everyone that helped me make it to the end but I can’t and unfortunately they’re not all pictured here. But the biggest thanks goes to @tjjackson9 [Michael’s nephew TJ Jackson] and his brothers @tarylljackson [Taryll Jackson] and @tajjackson [Taj Jackson] who kept pushing me to graduate and finish up my degree when I wanted to quit.”
Added Prince: “Honestly I can’t tell you if all of it was worth it yet but I am proud of my degree as I believe it is a testament to my dedication and discipline.
“I’m thankful for LMUs education of a whole person and the implementation of Jesuit values because I believe they inspire graduates like me to continue to change the world for the better.”
Although both Prince and sister Paris are no strangers to the spotlight, Blanket has remained a much more reclusive figure.
A source told Us Weekly in 2015 that the youngest Jackson child is “really quiet.”
