The 13-year-old formerly known as Blanket will be going by Bigi. An inside source says he decided to change his name before entering elite prep school, The Buckley School in Sherman Oaks, California.
Insiders say he always resented the name Blanket, which he felt was stupid and made him a target of ridicule growing up. His new name, which is of German descent, means idealistic, sensitive and inspirational.
Sangouthai, who often appeared on Lamar and Khloe Kardashian's reality show, died Sunday of an apparent heroin overdose after years of drug abuse problems. He and Lamar were real tight and the Kardashians always believed that Jamie got Lamar into drugs and fueled his crack binge two years ago. That's why they're worried that Jamie's death could drive Lamar back down that road but they're hoping it will be a wake up call for him to clean himself up for good.
The 46-year-old actor announced the news at the Monaco TV Festival. He told Access Hollywood, "He's beautiful and strong and a whirlwind and my wife is so happy." Terence explained that his son's name was inspired by a mythic Chinese creature called the qilin, which is believed to be an omen for prosperity and peacefulness.
The star has three older children and one grandchild. He and Mira were married in 2013.
