“Blanket has become a forgotten child, and Diana Ross wants to move the teen from California into her home in Greenwich, Conn.,” noted a friend.
“Diana spends enough time in Los Angeles that Blanket wouldn’t totally be uprooted. He could still spend time with his family — but she feels like Blanket could use a life change so he can realize his full potential.”
The high school freshman, whose full name is “Prince Michael Jackson II”, now has virtually no adult supervision at the Calabasas, Calif., home of his 87-year-old grandma, Katherine, sources say.
“It’s a horrible situation — this really sweet young man is all alone in the world,” said a pal, noting Katherine rarely talks to Blanket.
Blanket’s co-guardian, cousin T.J., lives an hour away and “can barely check up on Blanket once a week or so,” the source added.
Diana, picked by Michael to watch his three kids after his death, “was absolutely horrified” to learn Blanket has been alone.
His siblings, Prince, 20, and Paris, 19, are now living their own lives.
While Paris publicly says she’s worried about her kid brother’s lonely life, she hasn’t stopped globe-trotting to be by his side.
Michael penned a will naming his Supreme pal as backup guardian to his kids if Katherine “is unable or unwilling to act as guardian.”
Diana is now looking at her legal options — with a pal saying: “It breaks her heart to see what’s become of Blanket!”
