Late Micheal Jackson’s son, Blanket Jackson; the same baby the pop star dangled over the balcony for the press photographers 13 years ago amid criticism at that time that he was endangering his life, is now a teenager!
According to Radar Online, the 13 year old youngest son of the late pop King has changed his name from Blanket Jackson to Bigi Jackson after enduring years of painful bullying.
He reportedly resented his father for giving him the name Blanket that became the butt of jokes to his peers for years.
Born Michael Jackson Jr., the 13-year-old, who is just completing 7th grade at The Buckley School in Sherman Oaks, California, “changed his name informally from Blanket to Bigi before entering Buckley because he hated getting bullied and made fun of because his name was Blanket,” an insider told Radar.
“Growing up, his school mates have always been slightly mean to him because of their jealousy over who he is and going by Blanket made him a much easier target for ridicule.”
Blanket who has been home schooled for years enrolled in the Buckley school at Sherman Oaks, California as Bigi and has been there for about a year now.
His new name Bigi, is said to come from a German origin and means idealistic, sensitive, and inspirational.
