The Jackson family was reunited again following the funeral for their late dad, Joe Jackson, which included his kids, grandchildren and his wife, Katherine.
Paying their respects. Janet Jackson and her son, Eissa Al Mana, 18 months, attended Joe Jackson’s funeral service on Monday, July 2, Us Weekly can confirm.
Janet honored her late father alongside her son with ex-husband Wisssam Al Mana, mom Katherine Jackson, and siblings LaToya, Marlon, Jermaine and Rebbie Jackson. Michael’s son Blanket was also in attendance, as was Stevie Wonder.
One Of the famous Jacksons who showed face … Janet Jackson, La Toya Jackson, Jermaine Jackson, Rebbie Jackson, Michael’s youngest son Blanket, and, perhaps unsurprisingly, his lifelong partner Katherine … with whom he had a strained relationship in the last years of his life.
The funeral was followed by a memorial service at the Langham Huntington Pasadena in Los Angeles with very tight security.
Paris Jackson wrote via a touching Instagram post hours before the Jackson 5 manager died. “Everyone that came to visit you, came with love, respect and so much pride in their hearts for you. proud of you, proud to be your children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, proud to have your strength and share the dynasty you spent your life creating, and proud to be a jackson.”
“you are the first true jackson. the legend that started it all. none of us would be anywhere near where we’re at if it weren’t for you. you are the strongest man i know. your life’s work will go down in history, as will you, to be known as one of the greatest patriarchs to ever live.”
