"My son wrote his first book, 'The Adventures of Farad J.' A book about pranks. It's a great book for kids."
The legendary singer reportedly shared a sweet picture of her and Farad to celebrate his 19th birthday. In her caption to his birthday post, Mills described Farad as smart, intelligent, funny, charming, charismatic, and handsome.
The singer, who is fond of sharing loved up photos of her and her son, revealed during an interview that she is working on ensuring that there is a federal law adhered to in some US states in the face of police brutality.
The 63-year-old singer became a household name following hits like "Home," "I Have Learned to Respect the Power of Love," "I Feel Good All Over," and won the Grammy in 1981.
Not many fans know that Mills and the King of Pop, Michael Jackson were once a couple back in the 70s. She reportedly leaped to the late king of pop's defense after Sam Smith declared that he was not a fan of the late singer.
