Michael Jackson’s Very Wise Son Prince Acknowledges His Biology But Cautions: “I Was Raised By My Father”


Prince Jackson, the son of Michael Jackson and Debbie Rowe, has turned out to be a very cool and wise kid indeed. I told that last spring, when he graduated from high schoo, Prince Tweeted a long thank you to his family for getting him to that point.

On October 6, on Twitter, Prince responded to a nasty message about his biology and paternity with a proverb: “The blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb.” He adds: “I was raised by my dad with my brother and sister.”

The inference here is that Prince, in his freshman year of college, knows that Michael Jackson was not his biological father. But he also knows that in every other sense of meaning, Michael was indeed his father and the Jacksons are his family. This is a kid wise beyond his years. Michael Jackson should be proud. He did a good job.

Prince’s sister, Paris, meanwhile, has changed her Instagram account and added “Castellaw” as her last name. Page Six is concerned that she may have gotten married at age 17. She’s certainly in love with an 18 year old soccer player named Chester Castellaw. RadarOnline says her family is demanding Castellaw sign a prenup before anything more happens– a lot of money is involved.

Paris may be not as comfortable as her brother with her biological news, and certainly has struggled the last couple of years. But she also seems too smart to toss away her future on an impulse.

Meanwhile, all the Jacksons have been involved in the Lifetime series, “Jacksons: The Next Generation.” The show is very much worth watching as Tito Jackson’s kids, especially TJ, have turned out to be exceptional. (Randy Jackson’s daughter, by the way, is a Harvard graduate.)
