Has 2 children with Margaret Maldonado Jackson, named Jeremy and Jourdynn.
Uncle of actress Lark Voorhies.
Was the first Jackson to part ways with The Jackson 5. He chose to stay with Motown Records, while the rest of the group moved on. This was mainly due to his courtship with Hazel Gordy, daughter of Motown founder, Berry Gordy.
Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997 (as a member of the Jackson 5).
Embraced Islam in 1989 when he was in Bahrain.
Recorded three duets with Whitney Houston in 1985-1986.
Has eight children: Jermaine Jr., Autumn, Jaimy (mother: Hazel Gordy), Jeremy, Jourdyn (mother: Margaret Maldonado), Jaafar, Jermajesty (mother: Alejandra Oiaza) and Dawn (mother unknown).
"When The Rain Begins To Fall", his duet with Pia Zadora, was his biggest hit in Europe.
In 1991, he released the single "Word to the Badd!", an attack on his brother Michael. Jermaine was angry when he felt Michael pressured L.A. Reid and Kenneth 'Babyface' Edmonds to postpone working on his album to work on Michael's instead. Jermaine said in an interview: "I tried to put some phone calls to him and I didn't get a reply. It's a number of things but it's nothing we couldn't work out, had we spoken, but I wasn't granted an opportunity from his people to speak to him. The overall message is an older brother telling his younger brother to get back to reality. You have done it to the ultimate level, but you're still a person."
Is portrayed by his son Jermaine Jackson II in The Jacksons: An American Dream (1992).
The Jacksons were awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Recording at 1500 Vine Street in Hollywood, California.
Ex-brother-in-law of Rockwell, Kerry Gordy, Stefan Gordy, and Rhonda Ross Kendrick.
Officially changed his surname to Jacksun, on 22 February 2013.
