A call for celebration! The college graduation of late singer Michael Jackson’s son Prince Jackson over Mother’s Day weekend brought about the rare appearance of younger brother Blanket Jackson.

Prince, 22, commemorated graduating from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles by sharing several photos to Instagram on Sunday, May 12, one day after his big moment. One photo included in his post featured Blanket, 17.

© Prince Jackson/Instagram “I met so many people and learned so much that the experience alone is worth it,” Prince wrote of his attendance at Loyola Marymount. “I wish I could thank everyone that helped me make it to the end but I can’t and unfortunately they’re not all pictured here. But the biggest thanks goes to @tjjackson9 [Michael’s nephew TJ Jackson] and his brothers @tarylljackson [Taryll Jackson] and @tajjackson [Taj Jackson] who kept pushing me to graduate and finish up my degree when I wanted to quit.”

Yesterday I graduated from @loyolamarymount Cum Laude in the school of business with a focus on entrepreneurship. I met so many people and learned so much that the experience alone is worth it. I wish I could thank everyone that helped me make it to the end but I can’t and unfortunately they’re not all pictured here. But the biggest thanks goes to @tjjackson9 and his brothers @tarylljackson and @tajjackson who kept pushing me to graduate and finish up my degree when I wanted to quit. Honestly I can’t tell you if all of it was worth it yet but I am proud of my degree as I believe it is a testament to my dedication and discipline. I’m thankful for LMUs education of a whole person and the implementation of Jesuit values because I believe they inspire graduates like me to continue to change the world for the better.

Added Prince: “Honestly I can’t tell you if all of it was worth it yet but I am proud of my degree as I believe it is a testament to my dedication and discipline. I’m thankful for LMUs education of a whole person and the implementation of Jesuit values because I believe they inspire graduates like me to continue to change the world for the better.”

Prince graduated from Loyola Marymount cum laude through the California university’s College of Business Administration (CBA). His focus was in entrepreneurship.

While Prince has made time to complete his academics, he has begun to embrace the limelight just as younger sister Paris Jackson has. Blanket’s path, however, has differed from his older siblings as he’s veered away from attracting mainstream attention.

A source told Us Weekly in 2015 that the youngest Jackson child is “really quiet.”

Blanket’s last public appearance was made on Paris’ Instagram page in 2017. At the time, the 21-year-old model shared a photo with her brothers and family friend Omer Bhatti, captioned: “Happy Christmas from ours to yours #brahdas.”

The “Thriller” crooner was 50 when he died in June 2009. Since his untimely passing, the acclaimed musical talent has become the subject of the controversial HBO documentary Leaving Neverland. The film, which debuted in January at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival, followed child molestation allegations made by accusers Wade Robson and James Safechuck. Michael was acquitted on separate sexual abuse charges in a 2005 trial.
