Son of the late king of pop Michael Jackson, Prince Michael Jackson, will be making his first appearance without a family escort on November 10th.
Although Jackson will be making his first appearance without a Jackson clan rep, he won’t be entirely alone. The 14-year-old will be on hand for the auction of handwritten lyrics to his father’s hit “Bad” at a charity auction in the late fall. The auction- in Berlin, the site of the elder Jackson’s infamous 2005 baby-dangling stunt- will benefit the Tribute to Bambi foundation, a German charity dedicated to assisting needy children.
As for the event details, a spokesman for the shindig says Prince Michael will be integrated, and that the popstar’s son “will walk the red carpet and present the manuscript on stage surrounded by children.” Another source commented on Prince Michael’s first real foray away from the Jackson fam:
“He won’t be traveling alone… but he won’t have any family members with him.”
The younger Jackson and his siblings Paris and Blanket were notoriously close and even protective of their famous dad, and the three were understandably grief stricken when Jackson passed away somewhat suddenly in 2009. At the memorial for the star, daughter Paris sobbed:
“Ever since I was born, Daddy has been the best father you could ever imagine … I just wanted to say I love him … so much.”
The eldest Jackson child, Prince Michael is expected to testify against his father’s personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, at his manslaughter trial. One source close to the family said:
“Both the DA’s office and his relatives believe Prince Michael’s evidence is crucial to the case against Dr Murray and could even blow his entire defense out of the water.”
