A THROWBACK VIDEO FROM MILLS

Mills posted a video of the late music icon accepting an award as dozens of photographers took pictures of the event. “Today I celebrate my friends Birthday,” she captioned the post.

Although Mills did not state what event or award the clip was taken, Jackson was seen sporting a black blazer with gold studs, black gloves, and black sunglasses. 

The “Billie Jean” singer shared a romantic past with Mills in the early ‘80s, after meeting in the Broadway production of “The Wiz.” According to the “I Feel Good All Over” artist, Jackson was “the sweetest, most compassionate, most loving person.”

A POST OF YOUNG JACKSON

DJ Khaled also honored the legendary singer and posted a throwback photo of the late star from his teenage days.

The “Black Panther” star passed away this weekend after a long and difficult battle with colon cancer.

The photo featured a young Jackson wearing a ‘70s outfit while sitting on a big red and gold chair, looking at the camera.

HONORING THE KING OF POP

Jackson’s family, including his siblings Janet Jackson, Tito Jackson, and LaToya Jackson, also celebrated their late brother’s birthday with sweet posts.

The King of Pop’s daughter, Paris Jackson, likewise honored her father with an edited throwback photo of him in a red button-down top and black fedora.

The “Beat It” artist passed away in 2009 when Paris was only 11 years old. However, the young model was able to edit her grown self beside her father in the photo.

BOSEMAN DIES OF CANCER

Sadly, devastating news followed Jackson’s birthday as millions across the world mourned over the death of actor Chadwick Boseman.

The “Black Panther” star passed away this weekend after a long and difficult battle with colon cancer. His initial diagnosis was in 2016 and progressed from stage III to stage IV within four years.

Boseman never used his illness to pause his career. In less than half a decade, he starred in the films “Da 5 Bloods,” “Marshall,” and “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.”

Many were surprised and heartbroken over the actor's death, but like Jackson, Boseman left a legacy in the industry.
