The Jackson 5: Where Are They Now?
Several brothers of pop stars Michael and Janet Jackson are said to be struggling career-wise despite their more famous siblings’ success over the years.
The New York Post says that while both Michael and Janet have enjoyed very lucrative music careers, several of their siblings have not enjoyed similar success – and are struggling just to get by.
Original Jackson Five member Marlon, now 51, has gone from the Top 10 to stocking shelves at a San Diego supermarket, while Michael’s 46-year-old brother, Randy, has taken to fixing cars in Los Angeles and reportedly waiting on a financial gift from brother Michael.
The eldest Jackson brother, 56-year-old Jackie, who has seen a music producing and Internet sales career fail, is now attempting to help his son find success in the music industry.
Frank DiLeo, who managed Michael’s ‘Bad Tour,’ told the Post the pop star had a falling out with his siblings and has never looked back:
“Michael was not going to work with the family again. He was concerned only about building his legacy. He had to be bigger than Elvis.”
