Michael Jackson would have turned 56 years old this past Friday [August 29] and although he is gone, he will never be forgotten by his fans, his family—and especially his children: Paris, Blanket and Prince.
In spirit and celebration of his birthday (along with their uncle-guardian TJ, Rebbie’s son, and other family members of the Jackson clan), all three of his children traveled back to 2300 Jackson Street in Gary, Indiana to the tiny 3 bedroom house where Michael Jackson’s humble beginnings began and where all the Jackson children were born.
Although a lot has happened in the life of Michael Jackson since living at 2300 Jackson Street (where his allowance, if at all, was probably no more than $8 bucks a month), his children that love him dearly-whom he loved infinitely are much older now and are said to be getting allowances somewhere upwards in the amount of $8 million, doing with it; age-typical and appropriate things that each, at their ages, do.
Blanket, 12, is said to be spending somewhere around $500 per night practically in dinner and movies with friends.
Paris, 15, is spending hers at a private boarding school which costs somewhere around $1 million and Prince, 17, is said to be spending around $50k on jewelry and other expenses on girlfriends (past and present).
If you’re at all interested in finding out the history behind where it all began and yous got 3-4 hours on your hands, have at the The Jacksons: An American Dream made for television movie starring actress Angela Bassett as the Jackson matriarch and Lawrence-Hilton Jacobs as the Jackson patriarch. As well, other actors are Jason Weaver as young Michael Jackson, Billy Dee Williams, Vanessa Williams, Holly Robinson Peete, Monica Calhoun, Terrence Howard and several other well-known actors you may be familiar with from stage and television.
