Prince, the eldest of the trio, opened up about the siblings’ “close” relationship in an interview with Good Morning Britain, and explained that they’ve all learned to lean on each other in different ways over the years.
“At this point in our life it doesn’t really feel like there’s that hierarchy of, ‘I’m the older brother,'” he said. “It’s more [that] we’re all siblings and we’re kind of all on that same level where my sister has her strengths, and my brother has his strengths, and where I’m not as strong in certain areas, they complement me in that way.”
Prince, 24, and Paris, 23, are the children of the late Michael Jackson and his ex-wife Debbie Rowe. Michael, who died in 2009 at age 50, was also dad to Prince “Bigi” Jackson, 19.
“We have such a close relationship, and because I’m the oldest, my father would always tell me 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,” he recalled. “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.”
