Katherine Jackson


Katherine Jackson is the matriarch of the Jackson family. She gave birth to ten children –Rebbie, Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, La Toya, Marlon, Michael, Randy, Janet, and Brandon – but lost son Brandon as a baby. She and estranged husband Joe Jackson married on November 5, 1949 and raised their large family in small house in Gary, Indiana before relocating to an estate in Encino, CA called Hayvenhurst. Since Michael’s untimely passing in 2009, Katherine was granted custody of his three children, Prince, Paris, and Blanket and is raising them in Los Angeles. She shares guardianship with grandson T.J., Tito’s son. Katherine released a coffee table book titled “Never Can Say Goodbye: The Katherine Jackson Story” in 2010, which includes 150 pages of never-before-seen personal family photos. She is a devout follower of the Jehovah’s Witness faith. Katherine was born Kattie B. Screws on May 4, 1930 in Alabama. At the age of four, her father changed her name to Katherine Esther Scruse. She survived polio as a child.
