On Feb. 13, Prince Jackson will turn 18, which means he'll be allowed to make his own decisions as an adult — and it reportedly has everyone around him concerned.
An insider tells 'Radar Online' that “friends and family are worried that the troubled teen seems to be headed down a dangerous path.”
According to the source, he's been hanging out with Justin Bieber and others from a “concerning crowd of Hollywood partiers.” Recently, Prince was reportedly seen partying it up at the Chateau Marmont with an umbrella topped colorful beverage. The hotel is a stomping ground for a slew of celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Robert Pattinson and Lady Gaga to new a few.

"Like any typical misguided teenager, Prince resents anyone telling him what to do and does the opposite of whatever Katherine and Joe (Jackson) say," the source says of grandfather Joe Jackson and grandmother Katherine, who is the legal guardian of Prince and his two younger siblings, Paris, 16, and Prince II, 12.
Prince allegedly has a problem with authority and “no one in his family seems to be able to control him, and everyone is worried about his rebellious behavior,” shares the insider.

But there's one thing he still can’t change after becoming an adult — he has to wait before he gets his hands on the fortune left behind by his father, the late Michael Jackson.
“While turning 18 gives Prince his legal freedom, he will still be dependent on a generous allowance from his father’s multi-million dollar estate. The huge fortune his father left behind remains controlled by a trust that will dole out dollars in increments starting when he turns 21, 30, 35 and 40,” 'Radar Online' previously reported.
