Prince Jackson, King of Pop's Son, Graduates From High School

Prince Jackson, son of the late King of Pop Michael Jackson, graduated from high school Saturday with honors.

Various members of Jackson’s family voiced their support and love for the 18-year-old graduate, according to "Good Morning America."

La Toya Jackson, Prince's aunt, tweeted a photo, adding how proud she was of her nephew's accomplishment.

Likewise, cousin and co-guardian Tito “TJ” Jackson posted a photo of Jackson and his diploma at the ceremony.

According to Us Weekly, an eyewitness said Jackson’s younger sister Paris, 17, seemed “very proud” of him.

“She was fixing the collar on Prince's shirt and gave him a big hug and congratulated him,” the observer told the magazine.

For most of their lives, the three children of the King of Pop were homeschooled but, after their father’s death in June 2009, Prince and Paris began attending his alma mater Buckley High School in 2010.

At that time, family attorney Brian Oxman told ABC News that Prince is “a very powerful personality” who wants to be with kids his own age.

“I get the sense that Prince really likes business. And he likes speaking,” Oxman said.

Since their father’s death, the three children moved in with grandmother Katherine Jackson in Los Angeles.

Due to a quarrel over the singer’s estate, however, the 85-year-old lost guardianship temporarily in 2012. In the end, TJ Jackson — son of Michael's brother Tito — became a co-guardian along with Katherine Jackson.

Prince Jackson, who has had a guest role on “90210” and has also worked as a special correspondent for “Entertainment Tonight,” told “ET” in 2013 that “I'm looking to become well-rounded as a producer, director, screenwriter, and actor.”
