SHERMAN OAKS, CA — Michael Jackson’s youngest son has had enough of being bullied because his nickname is Blanket, so he changed his name.

According to Radar Online, the 13-year-old whose real name is Prince Michael Jackson II now goes by “Bigi.”  The site posted his 7th-grade yearbook picture to back up the story.

“Schoolmates have been slightly mean to him because of their jealousy over who he is and going by Blanket made him a much easier target for ridicule,” Radar Online reports.

Sources say “Bigi” thought the name Blanket “sounded so stupid” and resented his father for giving him the nickname.
