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.

“I would describe my interviewing style as very conversational – it feels like you’re just kicking it,” Yee explains.  “I always have certain questions in my head and I always make sure I ask.”

Yee has a “wish list” of celebrities she would like to interview.  Lil Kim and Miss Elliot are at the top of the list.

In addition to her new television program, Yee owns Juice for Life, a juice bar in Brooklyn.  She also continues to co-host The Breakfast Club on Power 101.5 FM, with DJ Envy and Charlamagne tha God.  As far as her future on The Breakfast Club, especially when her contract is up for renewal next year, Yee won’t reveal her plans.

“The guys have all signed up and are ready to go so they’ll be there,” Yee says.  “It’s always ‘it is what it is’ during contract negotiation time.  I feel like sometimes I take on a lot, but I put.   100 percent in everything that I do.  I’m at the point of my life where I can do what I want.  I’m just a fan of seizing the moment.”

*Meghan, Britain’s Duchess of Sussex, revealed in an essay published in the New York Times on Wednesday that she suffered a miscarriage in July.

The former actress and wife of Prince Harry said the moment occurred while she was caring for her son Archie.

“I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second,” Meghan wrote, describing how she felt a sharp cramp, and dropped to the floor while holding her son. 

“Hours later, I lay in a hospital bed, holding my husband’s hand. I felt the clamminess of his palm and kissed his knuckles, wet from both our tears,” she wrote. “Staring at the cold white walls, my eyes glazed over. I tried to imagine how we’d heal.”

Meghan added: “Sitting in a hospital bed, watching my husband’s heart break as he tried to hold the shattered pieces of mine, I realized that the only way to begin to heal is to first ask, “Are you OK?”

“Losing a child means carrying an almost unbearable grief, experienced by many but talked about by few,” she wrote.

“In the pain of our loss, my husband and I discovered that in a room of 100 women, 10 to 20 of them will have suffered from miscarriage. Yet despite the staggering commonality of this pain, the conversation remains taboo, riddled with (unwarranted) shame, and perpetuating a cycle of solitary mourning,” Meghan continued.

The duchess is receiving an outpouring of love on social media, with author Elizabeth Day writing on Twitter: “Chrissy Teigen and the Duchess of Sussex speaking openly about something that historically has given women so much pain, shame and trauma, is a game-changing step.

“I, and countless others, am so grateful to them. Beyond that, I simply want to tell them: I am so, so sorry.”

Prince Harry reportedly told the royal family about his wife’s miscarriage in the summer and they were “very supportive,” a royal expert says, Newsweek reports.
