With his last known public appearance just before Christmas, Michael Jackson’s youngest child, Blanket has been kept under even closer guard by the Jackson estate.

While Blanket, real name Prince Michael Jackson II is rarely seen in public, there are questions about his whereabouts.

The 17-year-old was last pictured in Calabasas nearby his grandmother Katherine Jackson’s mansion, where he lives.

While his siblings Paris and Prince have a high public profile, Blanket has been kept hidden away and is reportedly banned from using social media.

Blanket, or Bigi as he prefers to be now known, was infamously dangled him over a third-floor hotel balcony by Jackson in 2002, but since then has avoided the spotlight.

Back in December he was seen sporting his trademark long hair which he has had since he was a child, while hanging out with his cousins at Barnes and Noble before the Christmas holiday.

Blanket’s grandfather Joe, who died in June last year, said that Blanket was the most like Michael out of his three children.

Joe wrote on his website about Blanket: “You are like your father in so many ways, and you remind me most of him.”

In the wake of the explosive documentary Leaving Neverland, Blanket has now reportedly “stopped talking”.

His silence is thought to be causing concern for the family who have kept a close eye on the youngster as he’s grown up, under the guardianship of his grandmother Katherine , 88, and co-guardian TJ Jackson, 40, who is the son of Michael’s brother Tito.
