The half-sister of Michael Jackson has revealed how she was shunned by the Jackson family for most of her life and humiliated by the King of Pop.
In an exclusive interview with DailyMailTV, Joh’Vonnie Jackson, whose mom was a secret lover of Jackson family patriarch Joe, tells of her heartache at being treated like an outsider by the famous clan.
And revealing details of her new book ‘Bastard Child‘ she claims she was mentally tortured by her older brothers and sisters and cruelly snubbed at music concerts and family events.
Joh’Vonnie – born the day after Michael Jackson’s 16th birthday – is the product of a 25-year affair Joe Jackson had with her mom Cheryle Terrell.
She is still close to her father and to his credit he tried to integrate her into Jackson family life.
But despite his best efforts Joh’Vonnie, 43, has faced years of rejection by those she longed to be near.
‘I was very aware that I was in the Jackson family growing up, I saw them on TV, I listened to their music,’ she explains.
‘But I was hidden away, kept secret for years, not able to become part of that family. It was hurtful.’
Eventually Joe Jackson’s secret daughter was revealed to the rest of the family, but the Jacksons wouldn’t accept her.
‘I have met every single last one of them, but for some reason there has always been something stopping them from accepting me, from being close to me,’ explains Joh’Vonnie.
‘Of course when I was around them there was a show of love, but once I was gone there was no phone calls asking how I’m doing or how is my daughter doing, it’s upsetting, real hurtful and I still feel rejected.
‘Even when my mother died in 2014 the first person who called me was their mother Katherine, the only sibling to call was Rebbie, she’s the only one who really cares.
‘I later said to my brother Jermaine, “my mother died,” he started stuttering and said, “I was gonna call.” It was a wake up call, it let me know my position in the family. As far as I’m concerned they can all kiss my a**.’
Amazingly the wedge driven between Joh’Vonnie and the rest of the family grew so vast from her childhood that she didn’t meet older brother Michael until she was 29.
They met in 2003 at Michael’s Neverland ranch where the entire Jackson clan had converged for a family reunion.
But as she stood before her superstar brother, her excitement was snatched away by the singer’s cold, emotionless demeanor.
