Michael Jackson’s children attend ‘MJ The Musical’ premiere in London
Michael Jackson have attended the premiere of the West End production MJ The Musical.The musical has transferred to the UK following its success in the US – where it was made in collaboration with the Jackson estate and has gone on to earn 10 Tony award nominations.Like the American performance, the UK edition stars the same actors – including Myles Frost as MJ, Ashley Zhanghaza as his father Joseph Jackson, and Mitchell Zhangaza as Michael.The premiere of the London show took place at the Prince Edward Theatre in the West End on Wednesday night (27 March), and saw the late musician’s children in attendance.27-year-old Prince, 25-year-old Paris, and 22-year-old Blanket were seen together on the night – marking one of their first appearances all together having kept relatively low-key profiles.Prince and Paris were born to the world-famous singer and his ex-wife Debbie Rowe, who were married from 1996 to 2000. Blanket – whose real name is Bigi – was born with the help of an unidentified surrogate.As highlighted by The Independent, other famous faces at the premiere last night included iconic composer Hans Zimmer, Strictly Come Dancing stars Arlene Phillips and Darcey Bussell, and television presenter Jeremy Vine.For Bigi, the appearance at the event comes just days after it was reported that he had taken his grandmother to court in an attempt to prevent her from using funds from his father’s estate as part of a legal battle.The news broke after reports emerged that the late pop legend’s son was filing a legal injunction against his grandmother.

‘Say Say Say’ what? Paris Jackson squishes between Beatles at Stella McCartney show after MJ-Macca feud
Paris Jackson, the 25-year-old daughter of Michael Jackson, sat thisclose to Paul McCartney — who famously went from friends to enemies with the King of Pop — in the front row of the Stella McCartney show during Paris Fashion Week on Monday.After MJ bought the rights to the Beatles catalog out from under his duet partner on “The Girl Is Mine” and “Say Say Say” in 1985, Jackson’s eldest child was squished between two of the Fab Four — Macca, 81, to her right, and Ringo Starr, 83, to her left — at the Womenswear Fall/Winter 2024-2025 show by Sir Paul’s daughter Stella.It was the ultimate designer detente — amid a star-studded audience that also included singer-rapper M.I.A., model Ashley Graham, “The Good Place” star Jameela Jamil, British actresses Naomie Harris and Charlotte Rampling, and Barbara Bach, Starr’s Bond-girl wife.Sharing her late father’s animal-rights activism and environmental consciousness, Jackson — a singer, model and actress — gave her show of support for McCartney’s ready-to-wear collection promoting sustainable materials.“It’s not just the animals,” Jackson told Women’s Wear Daily about the need for eco-friendly “change” in fashion.“It’s the environment in general, it’s pretty much anything that’s not human about this planet. I support that [and] how do we make it a safer place.”Jackson noted that McCartney doesn’t use any animal leather in her products, instead favoring alternative materials such as mushroom leather.“It’s the vegan stuff and the anti-cruelty, but also just everything she’s doing,” she said of her fellow daughter of music royalty.“She’s very innovative and is finding a way to make activism chic.”But things weren’t always so cool between the Jacksons and the McCartneys.
