Michael Jackson’s memory has cracked in the shadows of the posthumous allegations of abuse against the singer. Last but not least, his children still honor their father, of course. So now on the day he would have turned 64.
Michael Jackson would have turned 64 on Monday. On this occasion, his children and other relatives remembered the late singer with posts and touching words on Instagram.
Michael Jackson’s son Prince published old family photos with his father in a post. The 25-year-old wrote: “Happy birthday! I miss you more and more and love you more every day. Thank you for everything.”
Paris Jackson, 24-year-old daughter of the King of Pop, remembered the musician with a father-daughter photo in her Instagram story. She just added a heart emoji and the letters “hbd” (“Happy Birthday”).
Michael Jackson’s sister, La Toya Jackson, shared a clip of her brother’s performance at the 1995 MTV Video Music Awards. “What a great performance! Happy Birthday,” she captioned the recording. Under Prince Jackson’s post, she also wrote, “Prince, he loved you with all his heart! Thank you for making him proud!”
Michael Jackson’s nephew TJ Jackson writes on Instagram about a photo of the singer, among other things: “No one will ever be like you. Thank you Uncle Michael for being here. I will always honor and be grateful to you. I love you and miss you every day .”
Other Instagram users also paid tribute to the late music legend on Monday, including celebrities such as model Naomi Campbell. “Congratulations, Michel Jackson, King of Pop, today would have been your 64th birthday. You will always remain in our hearts,” the 52-year-old comments on old souvenir photos with the singer.
With hits like “Billie Jean”, “Bad” or “Earth Song”, Michael Jackson is considered one of the most successful pop artists of all time, earning him the nickname “King of Pop”. His 1982 album Thriller remains the most successful full-length in music history, selling at least 65 million copies.
During his lifetime, allegations were made that Jackson had sexually abused children. The allegations did not disappear even after the musician’s death, but to this day have not been fully clarified. Michael Jackson died on June 25, 2009 from poisoning with the anesthetic propofol. The drug had been given to him on request because he was sleep deprived. He was 50 years old.
