The two, along with their brother Prince, were orphaned after Michael Jackson’s untimely death in 2009. Their grandmother Katherine Jackson is Blanket’s official guardian but it has been reported the 86-year-old has been away from the Calabasas, California estate since January.Instead after a prolonged stay with daughter Janet in London, Katherine moved into her daughter Rebbie Jackson’s Los Angeles home after her return last month.
Katherine spent a prolonged period at her daughter’s Janet in London, where she was recuperating from an illness, before moving into her daughter Rebbie Jackson’s Los Angeles home last month.
In his grandmother’s absence, Blanket’s care fell to his second guardian, singer Tito Joe Jackson, who split the child’s care with his wife. It was reported that they took turns staying at Katherine’s home with Blanket, but Paris felt the prolonged separation from other family members was harmful to the 15-year-old.
Paris claims such separation is encouraged by Rebbie Jackson, the eldest child of the Jackson family on behalf of. Paris believes Rebbie, 66, has been keeping her 86-year-old mother away from herself, Blanket, and older brother Prince, 20.
According to sources close to the family, Rebbie and several of her siblings have intentionally put a wall up to control their mother for financial motives.
Despite Paris’ concern, Blanket is said to be excelling at his private school, where he is described as ‘extremely social’ and is an excellent student – judging by his record of straight A’s.
