Who is Hazel Gordy?

Hazel was born in Detroit, Michigan USA, on 24 August 1954 – her zodiac sign is Virgo, and she holds American nationality. She’s a former model and social worker, but who’s possibly known best for being the former wife of American singer-songwriter Jermaine La Juane Jackson, who’s a member of the Jackson family.

Early life and education

Hazel was raised in Detroit alongside her siblings Berry Gordy IV and Terry James Gordy, by their father Berry Gordy who’s known best for being the founder of Motown Record Corporation, and their mother Thelma Coleman. Hazel also has four half-siblings, from her father’s following marriages and relationships.

She hasn’t shared many details about her early life with the public, but it’s widely known that she attended a private high school, and was interested in a couple of activities during her four years there. She was mostly into playing sports with her peers, but also dreamed of becoming a famous singer, however, it didn’t take long for Hazel to learn that she wasn’t talented enough to pursue a career in the music industry.

She matriculated in 1972, and because she hasn’t spoken of her further education, most people believe that she hasn’t attended college.

Hazel’s career

Hazel hasn’t shared many details concerning her career with the public, but it’s known that she spent around a decade working as a model, following the completion of her high school education.

It’s also said that she spent a year working at Motown Records, but this remains unconfirmed.

Hazel doesn’t seem to be working at this time in mid-2022, possibly having retired.

Love life and marriage with Jermaine Jackson

Hazel met Jermaine when he was signed to her father’s record label Motown, and they went on to date for just a bit over a year, prior to exchanging vows in a private ceremony on 15 December 1973, attended by only the closest of their friends and family members.

Hazel gave birth to their son Jermaine La Jaune ‘Jay’ Jackson Jr. on 27 January 1977, while he today fathers a son Soltan Soul Jackson with his long-term girlfriend Asa Soltan Rahmati, an American entrepreneur and artist. Hazel gave birth to her and Jermaine’s daughter Autumn Joi Jackson on 16 June 1978, and their second son Jaimy Jermaine Jackson followed on 17 March 1987.

Jermaine began having an affair with Margaret Maldonado in 1986, and after having learned about this, Hazel filed for divorce, which was finalized in 1988.

She hasn’t spoken of any other men whom she has perhaps been with, while it’s known that Jermaine continued seeing Margaret until 1993, and that she gave birth to their son and daughter. He married his second wife Alejandra Genevieve Oaziaza on 18 March 1995, and they have two children together, but they divorced on 19 May 2003. Jermaine married his third wife Halima Rashid in the summer of 2004 – their divorce was finalized on 21 June 2016.

As of April 2022, Hazel seems to be single, was married to Jermaine Jackson, and they have three children together.

Hobbies and other interests

Hazel was passionate about travelling while in her 20s and 30s, and visited many US states and a couple of European countries during those years, while her dream travel destination was Los Angeles, California.

She’s a lover of animals and has had a couple of pet dogs and cats, while she’s apparently volunteered at an animal shelter on a number of occasions.

Hazel was also physically highly active when she was younger, as she went to the gym and practiced yoga at home, however, she no longer works out today.

Image source

She likes to watch movies in her spare time, and her favorite actors and actresses are Eddie Redmayne, Anthony Hopkins and Amanda Seyfried, while a couple of her favorite movies include “Les Miserables”, “The Silence of the Lambs” and “Dear John”.

Age, height and net worth

Hazel’s age is 67. She has long black curly hair and brown eyes, her height is 5ft 4ins (1.6m) and she weighs around 120lbs (55kgs).

As of April 2022, Hazel’s net worth stands at more than $2 million, while her former husband Jermaine’s net worth has been estimated at over $5 million.

Who is her former husband Jermaine?

Jermaine La Juane Jackson was born in Gary, Indiana USA, on 11 December 1954 – his zodiac sign is Sagittarius, and he holds American nationality.

He gained recognition as a member of the pop band The Jackson 5, while he has been a member of its successor The Jacksons since 1983.

Jermaine was raised in Gary alongside his eight siblings, ninth sibling Brandon having died not long after birth in 1957, by their father Joseph who was an American talent manager, and their mother Katherine Jackson who was a housewife. Both of Jermaine’s parents were into music; Joseph played the guitar in the band The Falcons, while Katherine was a singer and could play the piano. Jermaine and his brothers secretly practiced on their father’s guitar.

Jermaine attended Birmingham High School, and upon matriculating in 1973 didn’t enroll at college, but chose to focus on music.

He and his brothers signed their first musical contract in November 1967, with Steeltown Records, and after having released four songs, they were signed to Motown Records in 1969. Jermaine and his brother Michael were lead singers, while Jermaine could’ve been heard singing the hit songs “ABC” and “I Want You Back”. The band left Motown in 1975 and signed with Epic Records, however, Jermaine stayed with Motown and began working on his solo career, believed to be because he was married to Hazel, daughter of the Motown owner.

Jermaine gained recognition when his cover of the Shep and the Limelites’ song “Daddy’s Home” was released in 1972, and it sold more than a million copies.

He went on to release many songs which charted, including “That’s How Love Goes”, “Bass Odyssey” and “Feel the Fire”, while his 1980 album “Let’s Get Serious” saw him nominated for a Grammy for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance. His 1989 single “Don’t Take It Personal” was a hit, topping the R&B Singles Chart.

Jermaine’s career declined in the following two decades, but he gained some attention in 2007, when he joined the reality show “Celebrity Big Brother UK”; he then also appeared in the CMT reality show “Gone Country”, and the ABC reality show “Celebrity Wife Swap”.

His first solo album in more than 20 years, “I Wish You Love”, was released in October 2012.

Jermaine is Muslim, as he converted to Islam from being a Jehovah’s Witness in 1989.
