Michael Jackson's oldest child, son Prince, has graduated from college after the explosive HBO documentary Leaving Neverland rocked the famed family.

The late King of Pop's boy, now 22, received a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from Loyola Marymount College in Los Angeles, family social media accounts revealed on Saturday, May 11, 2019.

Prince's cousin, TJ Jackson, tweeted a photo of himself and the graduate on Saturday, writing, "Prince, it's been a long road but you did it. Keep learning, keep growing and keep giving back! So so proud of you. I love you. #graduation #congrats #proudcousin."

Prince proudly wore his graduate clothes for photos, including for two on his own Instagram account with grandma Katherine Jackson.

His graduation was a happy moment for the family after controversial claims about Michael's alleged child molestation were made in Leaving Neverland.

The "Bad" singer's relatives have vehemently denied the allegations by Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who contend that Michael had molested them when they were little boys.

Prince and brother Blanket, 17, now known as Bigi, have largely stayed out of the spotlight, unlike their singer/actress sister Paris, 21.

Prince hasn't made a public comment about Leaving Neverland, instead focusing on finishing college.

Michael, who died tragically at age 50 in 2009 from an overdose of propofol and benzodiazepine given to him by his doctor Conrad Murray, "would be so happy just knowing that Prince is happy!" a source previously told Radar.

Prince told his Instagram followers that he rode his motorcycle to his graduation ceremony.
