Michael Jackson’s family honored the King of Pop on what would’ve been his 62nd birthday on Saturday. 

To mark the occasion, the singer’s sisters Janet Jackson, LaToya Jackson, and brother Tito Jackson, shared touching tributes to the 13-time Grammy winner on their social media accounts.

For her celebratory post, the legendary performer’s 22-year-old daughter, Paris, created an edit of herself and Michael, using a a throwback shot of him in a red button-down and a black fedora hat.

While Paris was just 11 when her father died in 2009 following acute propofol and benzodiazepine intoxication, the snap showed her looking all grown up in a black bra and a number of tattoos on her upper right arm. 

Michael’s younger sister Janet, 54, also penned a sweet message, which simply read: ‘I miss u big bro.’ 

LaToya, 64, opted to share a photo of him from early in his career in a turtleneck on the beach with a beaming smile.

‘A Big Happy Birthday To The Greatest Entertainer Of All Times,’ she wrote, adding several hashtags about her brother and the phrases, ‘King of Pop,’ ‘MJ4EVER,’ ‘RIPMJ,’ ‘Positive Vibes Only,’ and ‘Sending Love And Light,’ in the caption. 

The artist’s brother, Tito, uploaded a throwback family photo, which showed Michael in the center holding an array of colorful balloons. 

Michael died in 2009 at the age of 50 while he was preparing for his This Is It tour after he overdosed on propofol and benzodiazepine, which had been given to him by his personal physician Dr Conrad Murray.

Before and after his death, the artist was accused of child sex abuse, with the most recent claims coming out in 2019 docu-series Leaving Neverland by Wade Robson and James Safechuck.  

Last month, it was revealed Michael was obsessed with the idea of being ‘immortalized’ in a new book by investigative journalist Dylan Howard. 

In excerpts from Bad: An Unprecedented Investigation into the Michael Jackson Cover-Up obtained by The Mirror, notes written by the King Of Pop see him grapple with how to become ‘immortalized’ like idols Charlie Chaplin and Walt Disney.

He also appeared to be focused on becoming the ‘first multi-billionaire entertainer-actor-director’, as his secret diary saw him consider how to make that possible by earning $20 million a week.

In a darker tone, Michael’s notes also saw him write about his fear over someone wanting to kill him, as he felt someone was planning to ‘destroy’ him.   

‘I’m afraid someone is trying to kill me,’ he wrote in one excerpt from the book. 

According to author, the book is set to ‘give an intimate insight into the mind of the drug-addled superstar as he prepared to make one final attempt to relaunch his career and pay off his mounting debts.’
