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.
