Michael Jackson left an everlasting impression on the world as an unforgettable singer, song writer, dancer and entertainer – he definitely earned his moniker, ”The King of Pop”.
But MJ was also a family man, and during his career, he had three children with two women before his tragic death 11 years ago.
His youngest son, Bigi Jackson, turned 18 years old in 2020. In recent times, he’s been pretty active on different social media platforms.
Now, when you look at new pictures of Michael’s third child, you can without doubt spot some similarities with the famous pop icon …
Michael Jackson’s marriages
All the way up to Michael Jackson’s death, the tabloids wrote a lot about his private life, his marriages and his children. Since Michael had three children with two different women, there was a lot of speculation going on.
The press often questioned whether MJ’s children were his biological kids, and they also speculated on who the mother of each one actually was.
Looking back at Michael’s relationships, it’s perhaps not so strange that the newspapers sought answers
Michael Jackson met his first wife, Lisa Marie Presley, back in 1974. He was just 16 years old the first time he saw Lisa, and it was none other than Elvis Presley who introduced them to each other, at a hotel in Las Vegas.
Lisa was 6 years old at the time, but a huge fan of the Jackson 5. She loved the young singer in particular.
But it would be 18 years before the couple met again, at a dinner hosted by artist Brett-Livingstone Strong. Shortly thereafter, the couple grew fond of each other and talked on the phone every day.
Michael and Lisa had a lot in common – both had complicated relationships with the “real” world. Since both were celebrities from childhood, they had been very much sheltered from the outside world.
When Lisa met Michael, she was still married to actor Danny Keough, with whom she had two children. But Michael and Lisa developed a special relationship, and one day when talking on the phone, Michael asked: “If I asked you to marry me, would you do it?”
Lisa said yes and went on to divorce Danny. Only 20 ays after the divorce was finalized, Michael and Lisa themselves married. The couple tied the knot in 1994, at a ceremony in the Dominican Republic. The magnitude of the wedding between these mega-celebrities should not be underestimated – one newspaper called it “The Marriage of the Century”.
But before long, their marriage became very chaotic. Lisa Marie refused to have children with her husband. She thought Michael was too immature to be a father, and couldn’t see a future together with the American singer.
