Other Relationship Information about Joe Jackson and Cheryl Terrell:
Michael Jackson's half-sister JohVonnie Jackson claims meeting him was "the biggest letdown" of her life. JohVonnie, whose mother Cheryl Terrell had a 25-year affair with Michael's father Joe, says the late singer was "disinterested" and "cold" when she finally met him in 2003. Then 29 years old, JohVonnie was thrilled when she was invited to Michael's Neverland ranch after years of attending his concerts, but was shocked to discover the star was far more interested in her eight-year-old daughter. She said: "It was a big moment for me. But Michael was looking at me and seemed cold. He just said, 'Hi,' and then he saw my daughter Yasmine and was fascinated with her. He never acknowledged that I was his sister, there was no hug or kiss, not even a handshake. No physical contact at all. I wanted to embrace him. I thought he would want to go some place quiet and sit and talk with me and ask me about my life and get to know me a little better. It was very hurtful. He was not interested at all."
Michael was very affectionate to Yasmine, which upset Joh'Vonnie. "With my daughter, he was totally different. She got hugs and kisses, everything I didn't get. I was a little jealous. But there was a bunch of people there and I never did get a chance to speak to Michael properly. Again, there was this theme that I felt shut out." JohVonnie never saw Michael again. She claims she is still being shunned by her other famous siblings.
