Born – May 4, 1930
Barbour County, Alabama, U.S.

Michael Jackson's mother and keeper of the MJ estate. Also mother to Janet, Jermaine, LaToya, Danny, Taco, Jimmy, Banjo, etc. (Note: some of those may be wrong).

Credited as the first one to notice MJ's talent while watching him sing and dance at age 4.

Also credited as the last one to notice Joe Jackson beating the living hell out of Michael if he didn’t sing and dance well enough.

Lives in a house with several of her grandchildren, including Jermaine's son Jaafar who once tried to attack Michael's son Blanket with a stun gun. Kids today!
