She was Jermaine Jackson's common law wife for 8 years and had two children with him and lived in the Jackson household with Michael, Janet and some of the others. Michael never came out of his room and Janet was sweet. It was a good read.

Margaret did not hold back on the experiences she had being Jermaine's wife. Some of the things she talks about were very surprising to me. Nothing too shocking though besides the fact that Jermaine married his brothers ex. Pretty nasty if you ask me.

Nothing new about Joseph was written in the book besides that he now seems even more of an ass to me than he already was before. Someone in the family was having problems and got on top of the roof of the Hayvenhurt Mansion and threatened suicide b
