“Every time someone asks me that,” Prince says about who his real father is, “I ask, ‘What’s the point? What difference does it make?’ Specifically to someone who’s not involved in my life. How does that affect your life? It doesn’t change mine,” he told Rolling Stone in 2017.

Prince Michael Jackson II Father’s Death and Later Years
Michael’s father, Michael Jackson, suffered cardiac arrest at his home in Los Angeles on June 25, 2009. He died shortly thereafter, at the age of 50. Following his father’s death, Michael Jr., who was 12 years old at the time, came under the legal guardianship of his grandmother, Katherine Jackson. Katherine became the legal guardian of Michael Jackson’s other siblings, Paris Michael Katherine and Prince Michael “Blanket” Jackson, as well.

Michael Jr. and his siblings largely stayed out of the public spotlight, appearing publicly only a few times since Michael Jackson’s death. However, Michael Jr., Paris and Blanket did speak to their father’s fans in 2009, during his funeral service. They also spoke at the Grammy Awards in January 2010, accepting a posthumous Lifetime Achievement Award for their father.

Paris Jackson Biography

In February 2010, an official coroner’s report on Michael Jackson’s cause of death was released, revealing that the singer had died from acute propofol intoxication. Aided by his personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, Michael had used this drug and others to help him sleep at night.

After a police investigation revealed that Dr. Murray was not licensed to prescribe most controlled drugs in California, his actions while caring for Michael Jackson were further scrutinized. Michael’s death was ruled a homicide, of which Murray was found guilty on November 7, 2011, receiving a four-year prison sentence.

Believing that A.E.G. Live — the entertainment company that promoted Michael Jackson’s planned comeback series, “This Is It,” in 2009 — had failed to effectively protect the singer while he was under Murray’s care, the Jackson family decided to take legal action against the company. Katherine Jackson officially filed a wrongful death lawsuit against A.E.G. with Michael Jr., Paris and Blanket, and the trial began in April 2013.
