Bizarre Video

Joe Jackson To Grandson Blanket: ‘Stay Off Those Bikes!’

Did the 89-year-old confuse the teen for his recently injured brother Prince?

Joe Jackson posted a bizarre yet sweet message to Blanket Jackson this Monday. Michael Jackson‘s 89-year-old father took to Twitter to share a video voicing his concern for his young grandson’s health.

“Hello, Blanket! This is Joe Jackson,” says Joe in the strange homemade video. “Your health is… I don’t know what. You’re like your father. Now I understand why your father had you wear masks all the time ’cause news people was bothering him so much and he tried to disguise you as much as possible. But I want you to stay healthy and stay off those bikes!”

As previously reported, Prince Jackson – Blanket’s brother – recently got in a motorcycle accident that sent him to the hospital.

“Don’t ride, now,” Jackson continues. “But anyway, tell your brothers I said hello and stay clean and healthy. And see a lot of movies if you can, good movies of course. And be like me, be tough, be tough in a good way. You’ll live a long time. Above all, I love you all. Take care, man, you be good. I’ll see you next time I come to LA. Okay? Adios.”

As readers know, Blanket, 15, who now goes by Bigi or B.G. Jackson, only has one brother and one sister. He is still under the custody of his cousin T.J. and he is not the one who got into the bike accident Joe speaks of in the video!

Blanket Jackson has yet to respond to his grandfather’s odd message.
