I stumbled across this article this morning...aside of Michael Jackson's weird behavior...and questionable views on what is considered "nurturing" for children...it amazes me when people, like Michael Jackson, make enormous sums of money only to fritter it away on frivolous investments. It's sad. March 25, 2008 12:00am THE once mighty Jackson family is just scaping by, with broke family members even resorting to stacking supermarket shelves to earn a crust. The glory days of sequin-studded seven figure performances are over, with the cash strapped family now paying for decades of poor financial decisions. Here is a rundown of their current state of affairs. Joseph Jackson, 79 The Jackson dad hustles various girl groups in Las Vegas. He has previously filed for bankruptcy. Katherine Jackson, 77 The Jackson matriarch is still a stay-at-home mum and believed to be the only family member in contact with Michael. She has also previously filed for bankruptcy. Janet Jackson, 41 The current family breadwinner. She bought her mom a Vegas home in anticipation of losing the family's mansion, Hayvenhurst, to foreclosure. Like their Neverland colleagues, workers at Hayvenhurst have not been paid for months. La Toya Jackson, 52 Has little contact with the family after she declared Michael guilty during the 1993 molestation case. She lives with her rich boyfriend in Beverly Hills and earns extra cash judging beauty and singing contests. Rebbie Jackson, 57 The oldest, she's married to successful businessman Nathaniel Brown. Tito Jackson, 55 Formed a blues band several years ago and plays at small venues for $500 to $1,500 a gig. Michael Jackson, 49 On the verge of losing Neverland ranch as well as the family's Encino, Calif., home. He's hiding out in Las Vegas and repeatedly makes promises to his brothers while sabotaging any attempts by them to ply their musical trade. Gallery: Why they call him Wacko Jacko Randy Jackson, 46 Does odd jobs like changing tires to support himself. He was Michael's business manager during the 2005 molestation trial but ran into serious problems with friends after he persuaded three people to take out lines of credits against their homes to help Michael pay his attorney fees and Michael stiffed them. Marlon Jackson, 51 Lives in San Diego, where he works stocking groceries at a Vons supermarket. He fell on hard times three years ago when he was forced to leave his foreclosed home and move into an Extended Stay America hotel with his wife, Carol. Jackie Jackson, 56 The oldest son started an Internet clothing business and is trying to produce records by his sons. Nothing has panned out. Jermaine Jackson, 54 Splits time between the parents' Hayvenhurst mansion and his girlfriend's home in the San Fernando Valley. With more than $5 million in federal, state and other liens against him and a 1995 bankruptcy filing, he doesn't work or have a regular income.
