Michael Jackson’s youngest son Bigi Jackson stopped by the Barnes & Noble in Calabasas on Tuesday to shop for some books.

The 21-year-old heir – who’s an avid cinephile – was particularly interested in the Criterion and Movies & TV sections of the store.

Bigi (born Prince Michael Jackson II) was affectionately called ‘Blanket’ – meaning to cover or ‘blanket’ someone with love – until he officially changed his name to Bigi in 2015, according to Today.

Jackson – whose godfather is Macaulay Culkin – has grown a substantial beard and his chin-length locks were styled down for his errands.

Rather than wearing a T-shirt honoring the late King of Pop, the SoCal native opted to show his love for the seventies rocks band, The Doors.

Bigi – who purchased a six-bedroom, seven-bathroom home in the same neighborhood in 2020 – completed his athleisure attire with red Elite Sports shorts, white Nike socks, and black Nike sneakers.

Back in 2017, his late grandfather Joe Jackson wrote on his website of Jackson: ‘You are like your father in so many ways, and you remind me most of him.’

On February 20, 2293 Productions announced that The Buckley School grad had officially wrapped production on his short film Rochelles, which he wrote and directed.

Bigi’s directorial debut centers on ‘two friends who are put at odds when a prestigious restaurant makes them compete for a coveted position in its kitchen’ – according to IMDb.

It came a decade after Jackson produced his first feature film, Jason Hess’ drama thriller Kingdom Come.

On August 29, the trust-fund filmmaker – whose surrogate was never revealed – reunited with his half-brother Prince for their famous father’s Blue Sapphire Birthday Celebration on what would’ve been his 65th year.

The 26-year-old vlogger (born Michael Joseph Jackson Jr.) uploaded a video on his YouTube page on November 11 about what it was like attending the MJ Brunch hosted in the Mandalay Bay lobby.

‘This is a really awesome experience for me because it’s like a family reunion in a way. There’s a lot of familiar faces that I’ve seen from events in the past we get to catch up talk about different things,’ Prince said.

‘We all get to share stories about this man that we love and admire and it was just a real pleasure to be able to celebrate his birthday with everyone there in that setting. ‘

It’s unclear precisely how the 13-time Grammy winner’s $100M inheritance is divided among the heirs but their 25-year-old sister Paris receives $8M annually with bonuses at age 18, 33, and 40 – according to Page Six.

Bigi was only seven years old when Michael tragically succumbed to ‘acute propofol and benzodiazepine intoxication’ at age 50 back in 2009.
