Joe Jackson is simply being a caring grandfather.

On Monday, (Nov. 12th) the 89-year old patriarch of the Jackson family, Joe Jackson reached out to his grandson, Prince Michael Jackson II or Blanket via Twitter to send him a warm message of wellness.

The 15-year old is the youngest son of the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson, and reportedly now goes by the moniker B.G.

Grandpa Joe tweeted a never before seen photo of he and Blanket together, which had a phrase that personifies the Jackson family forebearer’s infamous tough image, “Learn the rules and break them.”


A link to the website of Joe Jackson trails the tweet, and his message expands some bit by comparing his grandson’s likeness to that of his late father, “You are like your father in so many ways, and you remind me most of him. Enjoy life, see lots of good movies, stay healthy and remember, I do love you !”

One hour later, Jackson follows the tweeted flick with a video message for Blanket, under the characters, “To my grandson Blanket. A personal video message from me. Love you.”

It appears Joe is concerned about his grandson’s health, starting the video saying, “Your health is like I don’t know what…” Jackson continues by comprehending his understanding on why his late son made his young children wear masks in the public eye, “Now I understand why your father had you wear masks all the time ’cause news people was bothering him so much and he tried to disguise you as much as possible.”

Joe Jackson, a visually elderly man, yet appearing healthy, just might have gotten his grandsons mixed up, as to whose health was in question. In the video message, Jackson warns Blanket, “But I want you to stay healthy and stay off those bikes!”

Recently, Blanket’s older brother, 20-year old Prince Michael was involved in a traffic accident as he was hit by another vehicle while riding his motorbike to his college campus, Loyola Marymount University.

Despite the blatant mix-up, while many found the message to be “odd” due to Joe Jackson’s history of “aggressive management,” his sentiments are distinctly harmless and full of passion, as the Jackson elder’s living room scenery displays his late son’s groundbreaking third solo album Bad, in the background.
