Fast Facts

  • Sang backup with her famous siblings in the Jackson 5 before releasing a solo album—the fifth family member to do so—though the 1980 self-titled effort achieved only modest success.
  • Was estranged from her family from the late-1980s to the mid-1990s, a period marked by several pictorials and a video for Playboy magazine, accusations of physical abuse against her father, a stint as a spokesperson for a psychic hotline and public pronouncements that charges of pedophilia against her brother Michael were true.
  • Reconciliation with her family and divorce from Gordon in 1997 were described in 2011 memoir, Starting Over, which shares the title of her comeback album released on the same day.
