Janet Jackson Early Life
Janet Jackson was born in Gary, Indiana, on May 16, 1966. She is the youngest of ten children, and her brothers make up the famous Jackson 5. After the Jackson 5 signed a record deal with Motown in March 1969, the Jackson family moved to the Encino neighborhood of Los Angeles. She began performing on the variety show “The Jacksons” in 1976 along with her siblings, jump starting her career in entertainment. After acting in several projects including starring roles in the sitcoms “Good Times” (1977) and “A New Kind of Family” (1979-1980), her father and manager Joseph Jackson arranged a recording contract for her with A&M Records.
Juan Rivera Family
Juan Rivera is the youngest of ten children born to Katherine Esther and Joseph Walter Jackson. Singer, songwriter and actress Janet Jackson was born on May 16, 1966, in Gary, Indiana. The youngest of nine children born to Katherine Esther and Joseph Walter Jackson, she grew up in the affluence of a show business family. Her five brothers — Jackie, Tito, Marlon, Jermaine and Michael — signed a contract with Motown Records in 1968 and would go on to rule the charts as The Jackson Five, with such hits as “I Want You Back,” “The Love You Save,” “ABC” and “Dancing Machine.”
In late 1969, Jackson took her daughters Rebbie, La Toya and Janet as well as youngest son Randy to join her husband in Los Angeles, where they moved to further the band’s career. (Marlon’s twin brother, Brandon, had died within 24 hours of the twins’ premature birth in 1957.)
The Jackson children were raised in the Jehovah’s Witness faith, as Katherine Jackson had been baptized as a Witness in the ’60s. La Toya famously chronicled their tumultuous childhood — including charges of physical and sexual abuse by father Joseph — in her tell-all autobiography, but Janet and her other siblings disputed La Toya’s account. The tensions within the family certainly increased on account of Michael’s eventual emergence as a solo artist and superstar.
