Joe Jackson sends freakish video message to grandson Blanket

"Hello, Blanket! This is Joe Jackson", the former talent manager said in the video and then went on to compare his grandson with Michael. "But I want you to stay healthy".

13, Joe Jackson - the 89-year-old Jackson family patriarch - shared a weird video message dedicated to Blanket "Bigi" Jackson, the 15-year-old son of Michael Jackson. Your health's... I don't know what. You're like your father.

"Hello Blanket! This is Joe Jackson, and you're healthy as I don't know what", he says. You're like your father [Michael Jackson].

The industry vet expressed a similar sentiment in his rambling video, as he elaborated as to why the Thriller's singer "tried to disguise [him] as much as possible". "But anyway, tell your brothers I said hello and stay clean and healthy".

He signed off by saying, "Above all, I love you all". You take care man, be good. This is after Prince, recently got into a motorcycle accident that sent him to the hospital.

The "bikes" comment was likely referring to the motorcycle owned by Blanket's older brother Prince. The words "Learn the rules and break them" were written across the image.

While the video message was incredibly sweet, Joe seems to have muddled some crucial facts about his grandchildren.

Earlier this month, Prince was struck by another auto while driving to his college campus and had to be taken to hospital by ambulance.

The Loyola Marymount University student - whose mother is nurse Debbie Rowe - thanked the first responders, medical staff, and his fans for their concern while resting at home later that day.

The notoriously private teen changed his name to Bigi in 2015 after years of bullying.

The elusive teenager - whose mother was an unidentified surrogate - was only 7 years old when the King of Pop succumbed to "acute propofol and benzodiazepine intoxication" back in 2009.

Last month, Jackson tweeted about how "proud" he was that 'the group at the next table are talking about how successful [my 19-year-old granddaughter Paris] has become'.
