The Jacksons may have broken up in 1975, but Jermaine has kept going. The fourth of ten children born to Joseph and Katherine Jackson, he sang second vocals as well as bass guitar in the '70s and '80s. He had a number of Billboard top-30 hits as a solo artist, including the 1972 Shep and the Limelites cover "Daddy's Home." Jermaine also recorded a few duets with Whitney Houston, and produced for artists like Switch.
Jermaine has also written a few books and had his own successful television show, which was canceled after just two seasons. He was also on the second season of the reality show Celebrity Big Brother, where he came in 2nd place.
In his book, You Are Not Alone: Michael Through a Brother's Eyes, Jermaine wrote about an incident that caused a rift between him and his older brother. He recounted how he and Michael were close in their early years. He would often sleep in the same room with Michael. Their father Joseph would be in an adjoining room so he could keep an eye on both boys.
In 1984, he re-joined The Jackson 5 for their Victory tour. They performed to over 75 million people, making it one of the highest-grossing tours of all time. Jermaine and his wife Hazel Gordy (the daughter of Motown founder Berry Gordy) divorced in 1988. In 2014, he appeared in a reality TV show called Celebrity Wife Swap.
