Michael Jackson's youngest child who was infamously dangled off a balcony by his father as an infant is all grown up and celebrating his 18th birthday with a multi-million dollar purchase. 

Prince Michael Jackson II, better known as 'Blanket' or 'Bigi', has just bought himself a "starter home" in California with a US$2.62 million price tag, according to Variety.

Situated in a gated community in Calabasas - an area known for housing the Kardashians and Justin Bieber - Blanket's new property is a 6400 square foot (1950 square metre) estate with seven and a half bathrooms. The six bedroom pad guarded by a security patrol at all times.

Bigi is the last of his siblings to buy his own home, but his is the most expensive. Variety reports his older sister Paris bought her Topanga Canyon residence for US$2 million in 2017, while eldest child Michael Joseph paid around US$2.2 million for a seaside spot in California.

Variety notes that the Jackson estate has earned almost US$2 billion in just the last decade since his death. 

This year, Bigi and his brother Michael launched their YouTube channel, Film Family, where they review movies with their cousin Taj.
