Michael Jackson’s youngest child Bigi is stepping out!

The 22-year-old son of the late singer made a rare appearance as he was photographed strolling around Los Angeles, California, on Thursday.

Bigi (formerly Blanket) sported a casual look for the outing, wearing a Star Wars Darth Vader T-shirt with a pair of black striped shorts and black sneakers.

The sighting took place after a busy recent few weeks for Bigi, who celebrated his birthday and premiered his short film Rochelles at the Santa Monica Film Festival last month.

Prince Jackson, Bigi’s older brother, paid tribute to him on Instagram in February by reposting a throwback photo of Bigi smiling as a baby in overalls that was originally shared by a fan account.

The HEAL Los Angeles Foundation co-founder also shared a photo from earlier in the month of him and his brother posing with a group at the Santa Monica Film Festival, where Bigi took home the award for best drama for his film.

“Bro is killing it! Chasing his dreams and winning awards 😊😊,” Prince wrote alongside the snap. “HBD yo!”

Bigi has become known as the most private out of Jackson’s three children, which also include Prince and Paris, 25.

Last August, Bigi made another rare public appearance with brother Prince during an event at Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino as they honored their father on what would have been his 65th birthday. The venue is where Cirque du Soleil performs the Michael Jackson ONE show.

Back in 2021, Bigi opened up about the impact of his father’s legacy in his first on-camera interview with Good Morning Britain, which was filmed at the Jackson estate.

The then 19-year-old said, "There's a lot of really cool stuff here. There's a lot of history in this house and the studio here. That's what he was all about," adding of his siblings, "That's what each of us want to do — make things that people enjoy but also benefit their lives."

Bigi also shared his passion on discussing climate change, a topic his father Jackson was also passionate about. "I do think it's important we all know about it. We have some work to do but our generation knows how important it is," he said.
