15 Years Since Michael Jackson’s Death: Prince Remembers His Father with ‘Miss You Pops’

Michael Jackson’s family members, including his brothers and son Prince, are paying homage to the King of Pop on his 15th death anniversary.

On June 25, 2009, at the age of 50, the “Thriller” singer passed away. A little over a decade later, on his 27th birthday, Prince posted an Instagram story picture of his dad beaming while he performed with kids during the 1993 Super Bowl XXVII halftime performance.

“Miss you pops,” Prince, who was just 12 when he lost his father, commented on the picture. “The world felt better with you in it.”

Jackson’s elder brother, Jackie, 73, also posted an Instagram photo showing him singing with his younger brother in the early days of their profession.

As Jackie titled his picture, “Hard to believe it’s been 15 years without you We miss you everyday,” she expressed her strong feelings.

Brother Tito, who is 70 years old, posted a simple black-and-white photo of the superstar with the hashtags “MJ4ever,” “15 years without Michael Jackson,” “Gone too soon,” “Always in our hearts,” “Miss you much,” and “No words.”

Tito’s 45-year-old son TJ also paid homage to his late uncle with an Instagram message that read: “I miss you so much, Uncle Michael.” Thank you for all you done for me. I will always consider myself the luckiest nephew to have you as an endless source of strength, wisdom, and love. “I love you forever.”

Jackson, 65, died of cardiac arrest induced by a lethal mix of medicines, and his doctor, Conrad Murray, was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in 2011.

Director Antoine Fuqua is now working on a musical biography that will include his 27-year-old nephew Jaafar Jackson.

Along with his son Bigi, 22, and daughters Paris, 26, and Prince, the thirteen-time Grammy winner has a son with his ex-wife Debbie Rowe.

Prince spoke in 2022 about his father’s influence and said that he remembers him “every day.”

“There are a lot of complexities in life that I feel parents teach their children, so without that, there’s some confusion there,” according to him. “Also, there’s a great legacy to honor. It would be ideal if I knew how he wanted it to be maintained. So, in that sense, I think about him every day.”

Prince has said that he constantly listens to his father’s music because it embodies “so much of his personality.”

In March, the three Jackson siblings made a rare red carpet-appearance to commemorate their father at a London screening of MJ: The Musical.

“We have such a close relationship, and because I’m the oldest, my father would always tell me that I have to make sure the group is taken care of and that I have to kind of be the leader and lead by example,” Prince told Good Morning Britain in 2021. “But after his passing and kind of us being thrown into the ‘real world,’ my siblings honestly, they picked up the slack that I unfortunately left behind.”
