Tito also shared a throwback family photo on Instagram, writing “Happy birthday, MJ!”

Michael died June 25, 2009, under circumstances that remain questionable. He was found dead in his I.A. mansion after allegedly going into cardiac arrest.

He is survived by his three children: Prince Michael, 23, Paris, 22, and Blanket, 18.


Paris recently opened up about her father in her Facebook Watch series Unfiltered: Paris Jackson and Gabriel Glenn.

“It’s been 11 years and I’ve been through hell, whether it was him passing or all the other s— I’ve been through in my life,” she said. “If I don’t talk about it or if I don’t let it in my music, it’s gonna completely ruin my life and it’s gonna own me and I’ll be a slave to that kind of pain. I don’t want that.”

In related news, we previously reported… director Spike Lee revealed over the weekend a new version of Michael Jackson’s “They Don’t Care About Us” short film during his annual Brooklyn Loves Michael Jackson block party celebrating the King of Pop’s birthday, which this year took place virtually.

“Great protest songs can’t get old, stale or non-relevant because the struggle still continues,” he said. “That’s why THEY DON’T REALLY CARE ABOUT US is the anthem during this chaotic, pandemic world we are living in.” 

“They Don’t Care About Us (2020)” incorporates scenes from the original two short films for the “HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I” single (one filmed in Brazil and one set in prison examining police brutality) with footage from protests which took place all over the world including cities such as Osaka, Helsinki, Paris, Madrid, Atlanta, NYC, Tel Aviv, Rafah, Brooklyn, Tunis, London, Rio de Janeiro, Cape Town, Toronto, Kenosha, Melbourne, Chicago and many more.
