MediaTakeOut.com just caught wind that there's a new report circulating that says that the entire Jackson clan (minus a couple) are broke. According to the NY Post, here is the financial situation of the Jackson's:
Joseph Jackson, 79 and Katherine Jackson, 77
Dad hustles various girl groups in Las Vegas. Mom is still a stay-at-home housewife and the only family member in contact with Michael. Both have previously filed for bankruptcy
Janet Jackson, 41
The current family breadwinner. She bought her mom a Vegas home in anticipation of losing the family's mansion, Hayvenhurst, to foreclosure. Like their Neverland colleagues, workers at Hayvenhurst have not been paid for months.
La Toya Jackson, 52
Family turncoat who declared Michael guilty during the 1993 molestation case, she earns a living mostly in Europe and in the UAE judging beauty and singing contests. She lives with a wealthy boyfriend in Beverly Hills and has little contact with her siblings.
Rebbie Jackson, 57
The oldest, she's married to successful businessman Nathaniel Brown.
Tito Jackson, 55
Formed a blues band several years ago and plays at small venues for $500 to $1,500 a gig.
Michael Jackson, 49
On the verge of losing Neverland ranch as well as the family's Encino, Calif., home. He's hiding out in Las Vegas and repeatedly makes promises to his brothers while sabotaging any attempts by them to ply their musical trade.
Randy Jackson, 46
Does odd jobs like changing tires to support himself. He was Michael's business manager during the 2005 molestation trial but ran into serious problems with friends after he persuaded three people to take out lines of credits against their homes to help Michael pay his attorney fees and Michael stiffed them.
Marlon Jackson, 51
Lives in San Diego, where he works stocking groceries at a Vons supermarket. He fell on hard times three years ago when he was forced to leave his foreclosed home and move into an Extended Stay America hotel with his wife, Carol.
Jackie Jackson, 56
The oldest son started an Internet clothing business and is trying to produce records by his sons. Nothing has panned out.
Jermaine Jackson, 54
Splits time between the parents' Hayvenhurst mansion and his girlfriend's home in the San Fernando Valley. With more than $5 million in federal, state and other liens against him and a 1995 bankruptcy filing, he doesn't work or have a regular income.
I am not suprised.... JANET IS JANET AND LETOYA STAYS RE-INVENTING HERSELF. REBE IS THE OLDEST/SMART ONE.
A[SPAM]hhhhhhhh, SUCH LIES SO EARLY IN THE MORNING!
I CANT DEAL WITH THIS *** THIS MORNING, WHY DO YALLL HAVE IT IN FOR THE JACKSONS?
lmao. at the pics
MTO, YALL NEED HELP...GIVE THEM SOME MONEY THAN.
I always liked LaToya (for some strange odd reason)
*** I would like to be their kind of broke....
"THAT"s LIFE ITS HAPPENS TO THE BEST OF US!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mike aint broke.....But dam JACKSONS!!Done fell off da map
THAST CRAZY ...I THOUGHT THEY WERE SET 4 LYFE
Wow......... Yo thas crazy....If they were smart....some of them need to do reality shows to get some freaking bread! Watch......Bet it happens real soon!
Yet another "report" that MTO has no proof of. If they are all in common places like the grocery store, etc, why no pics? You had pics of Rhianna's father on the streets! Fred, stop lying!!
lawd those boys use to b so *** fine back in thu day, now they all r just a hot fu-*** up mess
I read the New York Post article in it's entirety.
I have to say it's one thing to not associate with your family it's another to hold them back and keep making empty promises.
Michael should be ashame of his self for sabotaging his family that's probably why he has so much *** coming down on him all the time.
I hate to see his karma come back on him through his kids by the way he has treated his family.
that's a lie, Michael is no where near broke, yal idiots can believe that if you want to
NOT True! Jackie has a record company called Jesco Records. Marlon is the founder and Executive Board Member in a Black Family Channel called MBC Network, he also is the CEO of Valbritmar Entertainment. The other brothers have things there doing as well. They are not broke. Michael may be the only one that is in trouble. You really can't believe what you hear. Plus there kids are doing things also.
I would have to agree with Leanie
mto why do yall care??!!!
A *** shame....Mike Tyson, Hammer, Jacko's, black people manage your money when you get it please -B.
That aint the Jacksons, why are their noses so big? That picture is photoshopped.
too many nose jobs
WITH ALL THAT MONEY HE MADE FROM "THRILLER" WHY DIDN'T MIKE JUST PAY FOR THAT RANCH IN FULL? I THOUGHT IT WAS ALREADY PAID FOR.
The jackson are not Broke.MTO yall are some liars.You said his Marlon Jackson worked at a grocery store that is a lie
he owns part of a tv station.Why MTO always lying
DANG JOSEPH AND KATHERINE WERE GETTING IT IN!!!!!!! I DIDN'T REALIZE ALL THE KIDS WERE SO CLOSE IN AGE!!!!!!!!!! WITH ALL THEM KIDS THEY SHOULD NEVER GO BROKE, I DON'T CARE WHAT NO ONE SAYS.
who cares. how do you know how much money they got unless you got pics of him workin at a grocery store in San diego I aint beleivein this BS!
MTO why are yall going over to t.m.z. and taking their stories & adding ur own spin to it. I read this story half an hour ago over there. And like somebody said in the Mariah/Da Brat story, that was on t.m.z too. Get yall lives together!
But newaysz..big ups to LaToya for findin her a sugar daddy & living the high life ! Lol
Woah, if this is true it's a shame...we need pictures of Randy changing tires, and Marlon stocking cans in the grocery store to believe this report. Sorry, it just sounds to crazy to be completely true. I know they are all old, but they did make money how likely is it that they all had bad investments? I know they didn't pay much back in the 80's but *** stocking groceries, and changing tires is a bit much? Have they ever heard of buying an insurance company or store?
I know one thing. Janet better buy that Beatles catalog from Michael before he looses them to Sony records.
She's the only one that can afford $600 million and those records generate billions.
Sad that this family couldn't keep the finances together.
Is anyone shocked?
Boy Katherine must have a revolving door installed on her puzzy..she was cranking them Bebe's kids OUT!!
sounds like a normal family....some make it, some try and some dont.
ummmmmm why would janet let her brother have to move into a hotel! that is just wrong!
WE ALL KNOW THAT MTO IS LYING ON THIS ONE CAUSE MTO NEVER INCLUDED WHAT RANDY MAKE ON AMERICAN IDOL. I'M SURE HE'S NOT DOING CHERITY JUDGING!! PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT YOU WRITE MTO.
this is so crazy!
beautiful family. even with their original noses.
Why don't they just go on tour again? thats a quick 100 million right there LOL. I know they still got it.
There's no way in hell that Michael is broke! C'mon, he has the f***ing BEATLES CATALOG! he has THRILLER. He has all kinds of ***! wtf. And I'm pretty sure that he and Janet can loan their siblings some cash (mad cash) if they needed it. I'm sure they love their family enough to do that. and yall ain't gotta worry becuz Neverland ain't going NOWHERE! It's Michael's 4 life!!!!!!
and btw, looka that sexy man in that pink *** in the photo...MJ for life!
I'm skeptical but if true I feel sorry for them. In that pic they all look alike don't they? Katherine had some strong genes...But anyway I wish them all the best and hope they can pull together as a family and help each other. That's what family is about- LOVE.
Uh...who cares. That's what you get for *** up your money doing stupid ***!! You a grown azz man so man up and make due! I have no sympathy for ignorance.
Janet is talented and smart. One thing the Jacksons taught their girls it seems like was to "marry/date rich" - one thing the girls have in common is they married "successful" men - and Janet is not even an exception hooking up with JD...
ooh..& Michael betta sell them Elephant Man bones he holding on to.
THEY ARE BROKE !!!
THIS STORY IS TRUE FOR THE MOST PART. ALL OF THEM SCREWED UP FINANCIALLY !
AND SOME OF YOU IDIOTS IN HERE TALKIN BOUT THEY AIN'T BROKE ????
U IDIOTS HAVE NO CLUE WHAT REAL MONEY IS ???
THE JACKSONS "WAS RICH", BUT "NEVER WEALTHY". WEALTHY MEANS THAT NO MATTER HOW MUCH MONEY U SPEND, IT'S STILL IMPOSSIBLE TO GO BROKE.
EXAMPLE: BILL GATES, WARREN BUFFET, ETC. THEY COULDN'T SPEND ALL THEIR MONEY IF THE TRIED !
TRUST me when I say that MICHAEL is NOT broke by ANY means... For one thing I DO NOT believe he ever wanted neverland back, the fact of the matter is that he would have lost his *** trying to sell it so he's doing the smart thing. Second, his royalites from his albums are through the roof, so every time one of his songs gets played on the radio, on a TV show, or a commerical etc. He gets a fat check, and he has publishing rights on all of his music. Not to mention he owns "the beatles" full catolog which is worth Millions. Michael is not broke, stop being Nieve people. Now the other ones may very well be...
lls.i thought michealjackson was gonna neva go broke.
i can't feel bad for them. the jacksons hit the lottery early on in their childhood. that family messed up like most people and life goes on.
all those changes to their faces.... that's where all their money went too.
First of all to mssugavery Randy Jackson from American Idol is not related to these Jacksons. Second, to pinkloy Michael no longer owns the Beatles catalog, he put it up for calateral to borrow money from Sony and defaulted on the loan.
Do you *** here at BeyonceTakeout ever... and I mean EEEEVERRRR... do research???? It's obvious you scan the net & WHITE GOSSIP SITES for stories then copy & paste. WTF!!!??
ughh... I can't... I can't... ughhh!!
THAT'S INCORRECT INFORMATION YOU'RE DISTRIBUTING THERE ***. STOP GOING TO ONE SOURCE TO GET YA INFO.
MIKE (((STILL OWNS))) THE CATALOG ALONG WITH THE NEWLY ACQUIRED PUBLISHING RIGHTS OF EMINEM'S MOST SUCCESSFUL SONGS :-) (((NEWLY ACQUIRED PUBLISHING RIGHTS)))
FACTS HUNBUN... FACTS
....and I'm not even gonna address GONZO up there...
*** if true thats sad.
What's the Financial situation for the employees at MTO??!!!
MTO what is wrong with y'all, stop lying! Marlon Jackson ain't bagging no *** groceries!!!!!
Smoke is a biotch!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don't know what to believe about these folk. It's possible they are broke but then again maybe not. Hell, if Janet got money like that she should at least make sure her siblings are ok... Put something on it at least LOL... I couldn't watch my siblings fall *** like that.... .. *** Randy and Marlon changing tires and bagging groceries? I can't believe it!!!! MTO this better be true......
@Mssugavery, LOL that Randy from American Idol isn't apart of the "Jackson" clan... Just a coincidence they have the same name. LOL..
However a few them should get together at the hotel, hell at Janet's and do a reality show.. That would certainly help them, so long as they don't start buying absurd ***; such as animals that normally reside at a zoo or in the jungle.
this can't be true
DONT TALK ABOUT MICHAEL[SPAM][SPAM][SPAM][SPAM][SPAM]!!!! He's Innocent!!!
awwwwwwhhhhhh dats sOO sad ;; i feel sOO bad _ hOW sO much fame can happen *** den u lOse it all ;; & u ppl. shOuld be ashamed of urselfs writtin this is funny * it truly isnt ; im Only 13 years Old gOin on 14 On sunday ; MARCH 30 [ i take cashh ] =] *** i have more heart den u guys ;; On thee real if u *** had it all den lOst it u wouldnt liek ppl. sayin *** * but ay at least their tryna make a livin ; changin tires or baggin grOceries _ at least they have jObz ;; so STANDIN OVATION 4 TEH JACKSONS ;; &&+ MICHAEL AINT BROKE ;; HIS [[ new CD ]] was fckn #1 how thee hell is he brOke ;;; KING OF POP SNITCHESSS :]
Mike is not broke, as long as he got them beetles catalogs he good he did own 4 but he sold one for like 30 mil why do u think these banks keep giving him credit, but mike ain't stupid those catalogs going 2 them kids when he die and they going 2 be set 4 the rest of their lives.
Michael makes about 7 million a year in royalties.That is broke by hollywoods standard
The things MTO will say for views.
MTO are yall stupid????
In case you forgot Michael still owns the Beatles masters which is worth hundreds of millions of dollars. MICHAEL MAY BE A PEDOPHILE BUT HE IS FAR FROM BROKE.
Marlon working at Vons Grocery....oh come on now...Marlon has his own business...doing quite well I may add.
Randy well that's another story right there. Actually he became my favorite Jackson after Jermaine's looks plummeted. His face looks like a tractor trailer rolled right over it...sowwy Jermaine you used to be so cute but now....fugly as a mofo.
KEEP YALL HANDS OUTA THEIR POCKETS DAMMIT!
Wow I thought that Rebbie would have been the broke one after her Centipede fame. I guess she married into money
I can't believe Marlon is stocking groceries, but I guess you have to do what you have to do to make a living
(in the words of flavor flav)...wow!!!..."G"
one of them stocks shelves at a grocery store!?!?! you gotta be kidding me. janet help tha fam!!!
micheal owns the beatles publishing he owns a lot of stuff hth can mike be broke? rich people kind of broke is not poor people kind of broke ya dig?
and why is this news??
@TRUTH55 you're funny!p.s i just saw this story on EXTRA and MARLON'S p.r. person said he was working in a grocery store but he hasn't worked there in 3 months....could be true, sad but true...
All these cats could make some money if they would just work together. Do you realize how much money people would pay to see the Jacksons perform live on tour.
If you job is to entertain, then Nicca go find a stage, getcho azz on it and entertain somebody. Groups like The Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, Metallica, The Eagles, and Queen are always on tour traveling around the world doing shows and making a living the way a musician or entertainer is suppose to.
You have to work to eat in this world. Its doesnt matter if you're an actor or a ditch digger, you have to go to work to make money.
Ronnie Devoe from New Edition and Bel Biv Devoe owns a real estate company in Atlanta. He gets every morning and goes to work. As a matter a fact if you call his business sometimes he'll answer the phone.
You cant make consistant money if your at a different party in a different city everyday of the week and never take the time to actually make the money your spending.
This is all falsely inaccurate. MJ can never Ever grow broke. And he Didn't lose/or inst going to the never land ranch. Mj has many memorabilia and other things
All the girls. Darn! Just think the boys started off first.
DONT SEE HOW MICHAEL COULD GO BROKE . HE COULD SELL ALL HIS NOSES ON EBAY !
See...you can't live too lavishly if you are not making money... For today's artist, all blinged out and don't think this could happen to them, think again. Marlon stocking groceries? That's messed up. Janet can't take care of all of them, baby momma's, alamony payments and stuff...She would go broke too.
Look at how adorable they look'd before some of them had plastic surgery and made a fool a fool of themselfs.
The Jackson Will Never Go Broke To Many Much Royalties!!!
If anyone believes this ***- they're dumber than the people who reported it. R u insane? Michael Jackson will never ever b broke, based on just his money-making POTENTIAL alone. If they're paying Cher old *** 60 million dollars to do her farewell tour AGAIN, what would someone pay the most successful artist in history? A LOT. And all this time they been cryin Mike's broke- he aint never filed 4 bankruptcy yet, and at the last minute worked out a deal to keep his ranch, which he owed 25 million bucks on- Nobody is gonna work that kind of a debt out with somebody that's broke- or even close to it. Furthermore- Hayvenhurst has been paid for years ago- and it's the first home they bought from Gary- it's not going anywhere. And if push came to shove, u think Janet's gonna be touring the world, making millions in movies and music, and let her brother be in the street fixing somebody car or bagging groceries? The ones that made it possible 4 her? Absolutely not! I am probably the number 1 Jackson fan out there- and I made an account on here- jus 2 respond to this nonsense. MTO- yall DO seem to have something out for the Jacksons, and yall need to stop and pay homage, cause yall know yall was rockin the red leather beat-it jackets wit the rest of the world! Or at least ur parents did- and the Jacksons, Michael especially, have given their whole life to us on a *** stage, totally changed the way music sounds, and basically started the music video genre.. not to mention, Michael *** near cured a plague in Africa in the mid 80s- raising over 50 million dollars for HIS people! The least yall late *** queens can do is show him and his family- the first black family of music- a lil R.E.S.P.E.C.T!!!
Don't believe these lies
Google Str8 Business
No one and I mean no can can take up for this dysfunctional family any longer. The NY Post goes into great detail about this story, not the snippets MTO has listed.
Janet was on Larry King last weekend saying the family is ready to tour and Michael is the only holdout. She's even willing to open for them. She kept saying that.
I knew there were serious problems in that family when Janet was on Oprah and O asked Janet had the family seen Michael's kids. She said she hadn't seen Michael in 2 years!!!
Margaret Maldonado's book gave the world an insight into this sad, dysfunctional family whose father wanted his children to be stars while their passive mother watched from the sidelines. None of these men were prepared for the real world.
The difference between the large Osmond family and the Jacksons is that no family is perfect but the Osmond parents' religious foundation and stable parents kept them together. Joe was sleeping with his son's girlfriends and a horrible role model.
After financially taking care of his family for years I guess Michael is tired now. Family members can use you until you're broke.
I read where Michael kept refinancing Hayvenhurst and that will leave you with a mortgage. Just because it appears these celebs have money doesn't mean they're not in debt. If he had so much money why was Neverland almost lost in the first place? From all accounts, he never learned how to manage his money and spends like crazy.
@datruthhurtz: I agree. It's one thing to estrange yourself from your family but to sabotage them at every turn, Karma is coming to get you. The plug was pulled on Michael's career after the first molestation trial and his luck has been downward ever since because his intentions are not good against others. After that silly Lisa Marie Presley marriage, Priscilla Presley said on Oprah that everything Michael does is calculated. Michael's not that soft-spoken, innocent person he puts on for the public.
Even the assistant who worked for Michael for over 20 years said how Michael did things to his own family.
After Katherine dies, I believe those men will be living hand to mouth because whoever's paying for Hayvenhurst will let it go.
Back in the '90s Michael was paying Marlon's $11,000/month mortgage! Can you believe that? It was reported in Jet when he stopped. It's time these men went out and learned a skill besides singing and playing instruments.
Janet and Michael can't support these grown siblings forever and *** be obligated either. I'd support Katherine and be done with it.
I just find it hard to believe all that money Michael made off Thriller alone, that he's broke. But it can be done cause many stars who made lots of money did mess up. Hammer made millons but ended up broke. Mike Tyson made lots of money fighting and ended up broke. I can believe most of the Jackson brothers are down and out. I also find it hard to believe those homes werent paid off years ago. I believe Janet is helping out but all the weight cant be on her shoulders though. if they have to resort to getting regular jobs, so be it. Its honest money regardless. Celebs need to understand you have to have a backup plan just in case. If its true Michael is broke, then its his bad management that caused it or all those legal fees he racked up. I heard he dont like paying his bills
LATOYA LOOK LIKE A HOT MESS NOW... SHE LOOKED LIKE A PLASTIC DOLL LOL
THE HEADLINE SHOULD HAVE READ: ALL THE JACKSONS ARE MENTALLY BROKE, INCLUDING: JANET, LATOYA AND REBBIE!!! CASE IN POINT: MIKE WILL NEVER BE BROKE FINANCIALLY, AS HE OWNS THE BEATLES CATALOUGE, AND THEREFORE WILL NEVER GO BROKE.
I believe all of that but I think the brothers do odd jobs as a cover so the government won't take their royalties for child support.
Yea Michael owns the Beatles catalog but he used it as collateral for a loan.
I wonder what would happen if the family lost the house. Janet has kept a grudge against Poppa Joe for cheating on their mom.
Michael needs to stop holding his brothers up and let them go on tour if only by themselves so they can make money.
Michael's not broke. He just pretends to be broke so his broke *** brothers dont ask him for money. That man gets too many royalties from his own music as well as the Beatles catalog to ever go broke
bnasty thats not true. people who own homes get them taken away all the time. do your research. the more expensive your house the higher property taxes. if you dont have a job, how you gonna pay your property taxes, water bill and other maintenance. people get their homes taken from them all the time.
but they should have invested their money in real estate and owned some buildings so they could collect rent from ***...then theyd have a steady income. but theyre too busy buying motor cycles, leather jackets and gheri curls. dumb azz negroidian negroes
TheTRUTH555 you must be real dumb, real young or BOTH! what do you mean "that aint the jacksons, why are their noses so big?" was that a JOKE? their noses are big cuz theyre black *** people that were BORN with big *** noses! they got plastic surgery to make their noses small and skinny! None of those jacksons were born with those skinny noses. they got plastic surgery fool! i didnt hear you ask why Michael was so dark. OMG I CANT BELIEVE THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT DUMB IN THE WORLD LMAO
"Handsome" even if the ranch was paid in full, it costs hundreds of thousands of dollars to maintain it! he had flowing water fountains, amusement park rides and jungle animals in that ***! he had to make sure those animals were cared for, and tame, the rides were safe, the water was clean, the land was properly manicured all the time, he had to pay taxes on it and pay the staff that takes care of that place. people seem to think once you pay for a house or property that youre good and you dont have any more bills. HELLO!??!!?? OWNING A HOUSE REQUIRES YOU TO STILL HAVE MONEY AND PAY BILLS! owning all those acres of land and *** on the land would cost money out the *** to keep up.
mssugavery just when I thought the people commenting on here couldnt get any dumber, i read YOUR post! RANDY JACKSON FROM AMERICAN IDOL IS NOT RANDY JACKSON FROM THE JACKSON FAMILY! that is a totally different Randy Jackson! do your research! Jackson is a common name amongst black people! Every person with the last name jackson is not a child of Katherine and Joe Jackson...although many of em might be children of Hoe Jackson...I mean Joe. CDFU
still lmao@yall. ***! some of yall need to do research before you post on here! cuz yall are dumber than the media takeout reporters!
This doesn't comes to me as a surprise MTO. It really doesn't matter how broke the Jackson men are...'cause the Jackson women will always have their backs. That's what being a family is all about isn't it??? They have the money... still. We're talking about the Jackson's remember. *** on cash...okay but broke...never.
MTO is crazy yo like seriously and you readers are crazy 2 if yall believ MIKE JACK is broke or any of them and to cut it *** this story is more fake then when MTO had them fake pics up of rhiannas pops when they showed her real pops on the grammys when she went on stage with jay the man who she said her father was wasnt the guy MTO said so grow up and stop the *** *** FRED
***...datz messed up i love da jackson...imma need for them 2 make sum album or sum....amybe a tv show
Yo I dont believe this *** at all, thats impossible its no way these *** is that broke , they hiding money in some off shore *** somewhere no way they bagging groceris
I'd have so much respect for the Jacksons if they went into family therapy with their parents and got it together. As children, they were beaten if they didn't practice after school; toured in adult clubs at a young age. Those boys saw and experienced things that no child should have. Joe Jackson, their father, was having *** with their girlfriends and any groupie who came up to their hotel rooms. And you wonder why Michael doesn't contact his siblings.
Therapy can change all of this but they must first acknowledge it and then do it. I can't see Joe going with them because he's in denial about his parenting skills anyway. Katherine may not do it either. She's tolerated so much from Joe.
Margaret Maldonado blew the lid off that family. There was never any money for wealth, except Janet and Michael. Joe got those kids into bad business deals and the money is gone!
How can posters expect Janet and Michael to support their family the rest of their lives? The gravy train has to stop somewhere. I wonder why the wives don't work either? Someone has to get a JOB and bring in a paycheck.
AS REMY WOULD SAY'/!!!!!!!!!!
I HAVE DROVE EVERY ONE OF THE JACKSONS ACCEPT THE BOYWONDER.
YEA RIGHT! LOL! IF PEOPLE BELIEVE THAT THEY ARE CRAZY. THEY ARE A RICH FAMILY FLAT OUT.
