According to Joh’Vonnie Jackson, her daughter Yasmine was attacked in her apartment complex by a white neighbor. The neighbor chased Yasmine (who has asthma) until she could no longer run, and eventually stabbing her seven times. Fortunately the woman was caught and charged with Felony Battery with a deadly weapon. Yasmine, who works as a nurse, is calling for upgraded charges for the attacker. She says that during the assault, the attacker called her the N word several times. Prayers for Yasmine.
Joh’Vonnie Jackson, youngest sibling of the famous Jackson Family, released a memoir earlier this year. The book Bastard Child, was only for sale for a few months when it suddenly disappeared from bookstores both brick and mortar and online. This caught fans by surprise because Joh’Vonnie had been doing lots of press to promote her new book. Her interview on the talk show The Talk was deleted from youtube.
After months of speculation, Jackson posted on her Instagram live and Facebook about the reason why her book is no longer being sold. According to Jackson, an attorney, stopped the book from being sold. Although she doesn’t name the attorney, Jackson does say that she is a disgruntled former attorney of her father and the reason she stopped the book was because she is “Jealous That She Is Not Joe Jackson’s Daughter”. The post states that the attorney filed some copyright concerns which ultimately halted the sale of the book.
We wish Joh’Vonnie much success and hope that she can get this issue resolved soon.
On February 19 2016, longtime family friend to the Jackson Family Majestik Magnificent, passed away due to his long bout with cancer. During Michael Jackson’s solo years Majestik Magnificent worked as Jackson’s personal magician. It was alleged that Jackson matriarch Katherine Jackson paid over more than $1 million to help pay for Majestik’s medical bills as he battled against aggressive malignant brain cancer. RIP you will be missed.
Jackson’s sister La Toya tweeted out her condolences to Magnificent, writing, “Majestik You Brought Us Love Joy And Laughter! May You Rest In Peace!” She also shared a picture with the magician taken inside a casino.
