Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr. (born February 13, 1997) also known as Prince Michael Jackson I is an American television personality and actor. He is the eldest child of pop icon Michael Jackson.

Early life and career

Prince Michael Jackson I, or as he is most commonly known as Prince, is the eldest son of the late 'King Of Pop' Michael Jackson and Debbie Rowe. Jackson was named after both his great-grandfather and great-great grandfather, who were both called Prince. He has one sister, Paris-Michael Katherine Jackson and one half-brother Prince Michael Jackson II (also known as "Blanket"). Prince Michael Jackson I was born on February 13, 1997, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California.[1] Prince Michael was raised by his father, who received full custody rights following his divorce from Debbie Rowe in 1999. Rowe had stated that it was her intention that Michael would raise and have custody of the children.[2] Prince spent the early part of his childhood at Neverland Ranch with his siblings. His father made longtime friends and actors Elizabeth Taylor and Macaulay Culkin the godparents of Jackson and his sister Paris.

In 2013, Prince Michael became a correspondent for Entertainment Tonight.[3] He made his acting debut in the television series 90210 in March 2013.[4] Prince has expressed a desire to do more acting in the future and he is also interested in film making.

Death of Michael Jackson

On June 25, 2009 Michael Jackson died from a cardiac arrest in his rented Holmby Hills mansion due to an overdose of the anesthetic, Propofol. Following his father's death in 2009, Prince's grandmother Katherine was made the permanent guardian of him, Paris and their half-brother Prince Michael II, while Rowe obtained visitation rights.[2] Prince attended his fathers public memorial at the Staples Center on July 7, 2009. He came onstage with family and other performers to sing his fathers songs, We Are The World and Heal The World. He stayed onstage with members of his family while some gave eulogies. Prince was asked if he wanted to speak at the memorial but he declined. In 2010 Prince, along with sister Paris, came on stage at the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards to accept a lifetime achievement award on behalf of their father. In 2012, Katherine Jackson split custody of Prince and his siblings with his older cousin T.J. Jackson, who is the son of Prince's uncle Tito Jackson and a member of the group 3T.[5]

Personal Life

Prince and his sister Paris started attending The Buckley School in Sherman Oaks shortly after their father's death.[6]

On June 26, 2013 Prince testified in court over the wrongful death lawsuit against AEG live. The lawsuit alleges AEG was negligent in hiring physician Dr Conrad Murray, the doctor who is serving four years for the death of Michael Jackson.
