Joe Jackson © Regis Duvignau/Reuters Joe Jackson Katherine Jackson recently surrendered her legal guardianship of Michael Jackson's youngest son and her grandson Blanket, creating quite a few headlines in the process. And, the famous family is in the news again after the pop legend's father Joe posted a rare photo of Blanket on social media along with a cryptic video message.

On Tuesday, 14 November, the Jackson family patriarch shared the snap of the Dangerous singer's media-shy teen son and announced that Blanket had changed his name to B.G. or Bigi. The 15-year-old is the youngest son of the late singer and was seen sitting next to his 89-year-old grandfather in the photo.

"Hello, Blanket! This is Joe Jackson," the former talent manager said in the video and then went on to compare his grandson with Michael. "Your health is... I don't know what. You're like your father. Now I understand why your father had you wear masks all the time 'cause news people were bothering him so much and he tried to disguise you as much as possible," he said.
