I’m super excited for today because it’s our first time as the @heallosangelesfdn hosting the Halloween party at our Havenhurst address. We’d like to thank all of those that have helped us lead up to tonight and hope the guests enjoy their night tonight. I’m gonna be posting pics and vids so stay tuned to see what’s going on. (I know I will have to clarify this even though it’s at the bottom. THIS IS AN INVITE ONLY EVENT, if you haven’t been told that your name is on the list then it probably isn’t. Please respect the property and our neighbors thank you)
The Third Annual "Thriller Night"
He hosted the third annual "Thriller Night" at the Jackson family estate over the weekend, which he did in partnership with Heal LA Foundation, a non-profit organization patterned from Michael's own Heal the World organization, but this time focusing on people in Los Angeles.
Members of the Jackson family joined in on the festivities, including his siblings Paris and Blanket, and their cousins Taryll, TJ, and Taj Jackson. Of course, they all sported their own Halloween costumes.
Paris on Her Brother's Success
Paris made sure to commend her brother on how well he organized the party, calling him a bunch of good words in the process.
"I'm sooo proud of you big brother [Prince]. I know I say it all the [expletive] time but your way with words, the grace, eloquence, and composure is out of this world and always blows me away."
Prince Jackson as a Role Model
She adds that in life, Prince has been one of her biggest role models, and her belief in him just goes stronger as days go by because of all the great things he's been doing.
"You've got such a great head on your shoulders and are doing some really [expletive] amazing things. You've always been my idol and role model and even more so as each day goes on. I love you with all my heart. Happy Halloween everyone!! xxo - Radagast and Gandalf"
Halloween for the Jackson Family
According to TMZ, Prince gladly shared a word with them about what Halloween means to the Jackson family, as when his dad was alive, it was the only time he could go out in public with his children without people recognizing who he was.
Jackson would go trick-or-treating with his children, and it'd be successful to a certain extent. However, Prince's cousins recall that there would always be something that would give him away and people would end up noticing him. As for what that is, they refused to say.
Protecting Michael's Children and Legacy
After the whole "Leaving Neverland" fiasco earlier this year, the late King of Pop's bodyguard, Matt Fiddes, went out of his way to protect his legacy and children. With Michael's children in the spotlight yet again for something they definitely did not want to be involved in, the singer's ex-bodyguard spoke up about the whole ordeal.
"It's time now to defend a friend who was always so great to my family and staff. I have sat back and watched the circus which we got used [to] over the years. People forget this man was and still is the most famous man in the world. The biggest target in the world. And he wanted his life to be a "mystery." He understood the media value of that. And it backfired on him in death, sadly."

He begged myself and Mark Lester to come and see him two days before @michaeljackson passed away in LA. And he wanted his Dad (Joesph ) too to be with him. We sensed something was wrong but thought he just wanted to get out the 50 shows planned for London a few weeks later. Myself and Mark had young family’s and commitments and had we known what was going on in LA. We would of be on the next flight. It was a pleasure to work with you @michaeljackson and go on to be your friend. You were such a mentor to me in business and tough situations. I miss you and you would be so proud of how your fans are fighting for your legacy. I was your bodyguard when you were alive and will look after you in death the best way I can. RIP my friend. Let us take care of the nonsense. As you would say “The bigger the star the biggest the target” You will always be the greatest entertainer of all time and the most intelligent man I have ever met! RIP my friend, Matt and family x #michaeljackson #mattfiddes #kingofpop #legend #mjfam #10thyearswithoutmichael #family
Only the Real Truth
He adds that he and Michael's other bodyguard, Bill Whitfield, have had enough of what people are saying about their former boss and they've decided to speak up.
"It has all gone a bit wrong as he is not here to defend himself. In life we protected you, Mike and in death we are here [to] protect your legacy and family and especially our kids. We had our own inner circle of friends. We may kill your mystery and myths, buddy. Your legacy will be protected though."

It’s time now to defend a friend @michaeljackson who was always so great to my family and staff. I have sat back and watched the circus which we got used too over the years. People forget this man was and and still is the most famous man in the world. The biggest target in the world. And he wanted his life to be a “mystery”. He understood the media value of that. And it has backfired on him in death sadly. I have been bombarded with interview requests and have turned them all down. I have been in talks with his bodyguard who lived with him for the last few years of his life in the USA @iambillwhitfield and we both have had enough of it all. I will reveal Michaels true private life, has done Bill. Maybe we will do it together. As a bodyguard we see the real truth. We guard his life and private living areas. We know who comes in and out. This man has been surrounded by bodyguards since a young child. If anyone wanted to get to him they would come through us. We kept his private life a secret as he wanted “His life to be the biggest show on earth!” But it all has gone a bit wrong as he is not here to defend himself. In life we protected you Mike and in death we are here too protect your legacy and family and especially our kids. We had our own inner circle of friends. We may kill your mystery and myths buddy. Your legacy will be protected though. Watch this space everyone! You may not want to hear it but it’s the truth from two men who knew him well based on two sides of the world with very different lives and times with Michael. Facts don’t lie, people do. #michaeljackson #mattfiddes #kingofpop #leavingneverland #mjfam #bodyguard #friends
He ends his Instagram statement by saying: "Facts don't lie, people do."
