Michael Jackson’s son Blanket has reinvented himself and changed his name.

Back in 2002, baby Blanket made his debut in the spotlight when his dad famously held him off a hotel balcony, surrounded by paparazzi and the press.

Fast forward to today, and Jackson’s son has grown up into a 21-year-old who’s all about making a positive impact on the world.

And it’s fair to say he’s changed a lot since that wild moment on the Berlin balcony.

Blanket, who is also known as Prince Michael Jackson II, has now changed his name to Bigi.

After a childhood spent mostly out of the public eye, he surprised everyone with a rare public appearance.

Bigi joined forces with his siblings, Paris and Prince Jackson, to advocate for action against climate change.

During an interview on Good Morning Britain, Bigi spilled the beans on his father’s legacy.

But that’s not all – he’s also very aware of the climate change emergency, and he’s on a mission to make a change for the better.

Bigi said: “There’s a lot of really cool stuff here [Michael Jackson’s home], there’s a lot of history here in this house and the studio here, that’s what he was all about.

“That’s what each of us wants to do, make some things that people hopefully enjoy but also that benefit their lives.

“I do think it’s important that we all know about [climate change], I think we have some work to do, but our generation knows how important it is.”

And speaking of change, Bigi has embarked on a whole new chapter in his life.

Now all grown up, he’s reportedly invested a jaw-dropping $2.7 million in a stunning mansion in California.

The pad has six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and a massive swimming pool perfect for those sunny California days.

Naturally, he’s got some pretty cool neighbours, too – including the reality TV queen herself, Kim Kardashian.

Fans and supporters have showered Bigi with love and positivity following his reinvention.

One person wrote on social media: “It’s not easy coping with the death of a parent. Glad to see he’s doing better. Only wish good things for the offspring of MJ.”

A second praised: “Good for him. Love his name and wish him a lot of luck.”

“I would change my name too. Hopefully, he can have a normal life,” hoped a third.
