Which member of the Jackson dynasty is richest today?

The Jackson Dynasty

<p>Gilles Petard/Redferns</p>

The Jackson family first found fame in 1964, when brothers Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon, and Michael formed the Jackson 5 pop group (later called The Jacksons).

Managed by their father Joe, the musical quintet soared to success thanks to hits like ABC and I’ll Be There, and they even landed their own TV series, The Jacksons, which aired on CBS in the US between 1976 and 1977. As well as the band members, the variety show also starred their siblings Rebbie, La Toya, Janet, and Randy.

Michael Jackson undoubtedly became the dynasty’s breakout star after the launch of his solo career in 1979, followed by his sister Janet. But what happened to the rest of the family, and how wealthy are they now? Read on to find out. All dollar amounts in US dollars.

Let’s kick things off with the family matriarch, Katherine Jackson. The mother of the nine Jackson siblings reportedly boasts a $100 million (£82.5m) fortune.


So where does her impressive wealth stem from?

Katherine (shown here with her grandson Prince) played a background role in managing the Jackson children and also designed some of their stage costumes in the early days of their careers.

Unlike her late ex-husband Joe, who was allegedly abusive, Katherine had a good relationship with her kids, with some dedicating albums to her during their careers.

When Michael Jackson died in 2009, he left his beloved mother a 40% stake in his estate, which is where most of Katherine's vast fortune comes from. The Michael Jackson estate reportedly pays her a monthly stipend of $67,000 (£55.3k).

A legal battle is ongoing over the Michael Jackson estate. Managers of the estate, John Branca and John McClain, filed a motion seeking approval to sell a 50% share of the King of Pop's music catalogue for an eye-watering $900 million (£742.8m).

Branca and McClain described the sale as a "substantial advantage of the estate and in the best interest of the beneficiaries". However, Katherine clearly disagreed as she attempted to block the juggernaut sale for unknown reasons.

The court has since ruled in favour of Branca and McClain, though Katherine has reportedly filed an appeal, so the battle isn't over just yet...

Katherine used her money from Michael Jackson's estate to snap up a property in the star-studded Calabasas area of California in 2014. The family had previously rented the Mediterranean-style mansion for $26,000 (£20.6k) per month before Katherine purchased it for a hefty $10.75 million (£6.5m).

The lavish 12,670 square foot abode boasts a variety of standout features, including a home theatre, sauna, library, swimming pool, spa, and its very own bar.

Katherine previously shared the home with Michael Jackson’s children (pictured together), of whom she had custody, though they've since hit adulthood and flown the nest.

Rebbie Jackson

Born 29 May 1950, Maureen "Rebbie" Jackson is the eldest sibling in the showbiz clan.

She's reportedly worth $2.5 million (£2m). So let’s delve into how Rebbie has made her money…

Rebbie started out performing in Las Vegas with her siblings in 1974 and went on to appear on CBS's The Jacksons variety show.

The songstress launched her solo career in 1984 with the release of her moderately successful debut album, Centipede. She followed that up with three more studio albums but failed to make the same splash as her younger brother Michael.

Having married her childhood sweetheart Nathaniel Brown in 1968, Rebbie ultimately decided to give up music to focus on her three children. Sadly, Nathaniel passed away in 2013 after a cancer battle.

Today, Rebbie stays out of the spotlight and little is known about her private life.

Rebbie and her younger sister La Toya reportedly receive a combined $37,000 (£30.5k) per month in financial support from their mother, which comes via Katherine's stipend from the Michael Jackson estate.

Rebbie is shown here with her mother.

Jackie Jackson

Born 4 May 1951, Sigmund "Jackie" Jackson is the family's second-oldest child and first-born son. He was the co-lead singer of the Jackson 5.

Today, Jackie’s fortune is estimated at a relatively modest $200,000 (£165k). Let's explore why...

Jackie Jackson: music producer

Jackie shot to fame with the Jackson 5 and launched his solo career in 1973 with a self-titled debut album. Though the record was a moderate success, his next and final album, Be the One, wouldn't be released until 1989.

Throughout the 80s, Jackie produced soundtracks for movies including Touch and GoThe Running Man, and Burglar. He then took a hiatus from music, returning in 2010 with the release of his single We Know What's Going On.

Today, he's involved in the music industry as a producer and runs the record label Critically Amused, best known for representing hip-hop duo Gold Lemonade.

In 2012, Motown fans were delighted when Jackie, along with Marlon, Tito, and Jermaine, reunited for their Unity tour across the US. It was the first time the brothers had toured together in 30 years, albeit without Michael, who passed away three years earlier.

Jackie, Marlon, Tito, and Jermaine also starred in and executive produced the reality TV show The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty, which followed them as they prepared for the tour. The docuseries aired for one season on the A&E network between 2009 and 2010.

Since then, Jackie has kept a relatively low profile, hence his fairly modest estimated fortune and little is known about his personal life.

Tito Jackson

Born 15 October 1953, Toriano "Tito" Jackson is the third-born sibling in the showbiz clan. He played guitar in the Jackson 5.

He's reportedly worth $2 million (£1.6m).

Tito used his experience with the Jackson 5 to later manage the band 3T (pictured), which comprised his sons Taj, Taryll, and TJ. Tito shared custody of the children with his late ex-wife, Delores Jackson.

The trio's debut album, Brotherhood, was released in 1995 and sold over three million copies globally. Their most recent album, Chapter III, was released in 2015.

In addition to music management, Tito has performed as a solo blues artist since 2003 and has released two albums: Tito Time in 2016 and Under Your Spell in 2021. As previously mentioned, he reunited with his brothers to tour in 2012.

From singing to the screen, Tito appeared as a judge on the BBC reality singing competition Just the Two of Us in 2007. Along with three of his brothers, he was also a star and executive producer on reality show The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty.

Little is known about Tito's private life, though eyebrows were raised in 2018 when it was reported he was hunting for a home in the English city of Wolverhampton. The star is known to be a big fan of the Wolverhampton Wanderers football team.

While it's unclear if he purchased a property in the area, Tito was spotted in Wolverhampton visiting curry restaurant Zooma in the summer of 2022.

Jermaine Jackson

Born 11 December 1954, Jermaine is the fourth Jackson child. He was originally the lead singer of the Jackson 5 but was later replaced by his younger brother Michael.

Jermaine is reportedly worth $1.5 million (£1.2m) today.

Jermaine Jackson: musician

Jermaine launched his solo career in 1972 with the release of his self-titled debut record, which reached number one on the R&B music charts. To date, he's released 14 studio albums, the most recent being I Wish You L.O.V.E. in 2012.

Despite his solo success, Jermaine reunited with the original Jackson 5 and younger brother Randy in the early 80s to form The Jacksons. In 1984, the group released their album Victory. 

After Michael and Marlon departed the band to focus on their solo careers, the remaining brothers released one final album as a group before splitting.

Jermaine Jackson: reality star

As well as executive producing and starring in The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty, Jermaine has boosted his fortune by appearing in various reality TV shows over the years.

These include Celebrity Wife SwapGone Country, and Celebrity Big Brother in the UK. He banked a cool $450,000 (£229k) for his 2007 appearance on the latter, which saw him finish in the runner-up position.

Jermaine Jackson: legal troubles

<p>Mark Sullivan/WireImage</p>

Jermaine has been married three times and has nine children. In 2013, he faced jail time for failing to pay child support to his ex-wife Alejandra Oaziaza (pictured together).

Though he'd recently spent $160,000 (£99k) on a Ferrari, Jermaine owed Alejandra child maintenance to the tune of $12,000 (£7k) for their two sons, Jermajesty and Jaafar. To complicate matters, Alejandra also shares two children with Jermaine’s younger brother Randy.

Jermaine’s mother Katherine reportedly helped her son with his financial troubles. It’s believed he receives a monthly sum of $12,000 (£9.5k) in financial support from her, which comes via her stake in the Michael Jackson estate.

In 2004, Jermaine purchased a property in the Calabasas area of California from his brother Tito for $550,000 (£307k).

Stars including Kanye West and Kim Kardashian own homes in the exclusive neighbourhood, though it's unclear if Jermaine still lives in the house today.

La Toya Jackson

<p>Eduardo Parra/WireImage</p>

Eduardo Parra/WireImage

Born 29 May 1956, La Toya is the fifth Jackson child and the second-eldest daughter of the family. She rose to fame in the 1970s when she starred in CBS show The Jacksons alongside her siblings.

Today, La Toya is estimated to be worth $1 million (£823k). So let’s take a look at how she’s made her money...

La Toya Jackson: songstress

La Toya formed a girl group with her sisters Rebbie and Janet in the late 70s but decided to go solo following creative differences.

After releasing her eponymous debut album in 1980, she's enjoyed a decade-spanning music career, with Heart Don’t Lie, If You Feel the Funk, and Hot Potato among her biggest hits.

She's made 11 studio albums, with her most recent, Startin’ Over, released in 2011.

Following in the footsteps of many of her siblings, La Toya has appeared on several reality TV shows over the years, including Armed & Famous, Celebrity Big BrotherThe Celebrity Apprentice, and The Masked Singer.

She's served as a guest judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race and America’s Next Top Model, drawing on her experiences posing for Playboy in 1989 and 1991 to critique the contestants.

La Toya also starred in her own reality show Life With La Toya, which aired for two seasons between 2013 and 2014. She showcased her acting chops in the 2018 made-for-TV movie The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time.

La Toya Jackson: money woes

La Toya has faced financial troubles over the years.

Her stage show Formidable at the Moulin Rouge in Paris reportedly earned her a cool $5 million (£3m) in 1992. However, La Toya left before her contract expired and filed for bankruptcy in the mid-90s to avoid paying the Parisian cabaret venue the $550,000 (£294k) she owed for breaking her contract.

As previously mentioned, it’s reported that La Toya and her sister Rebbie receive a combined $37,000 (£30.5k) per month in support from Katherine Jackson.

Marlon Jackson

Born 12 March 1957, Marlon is the sixth Jackson sibling. He started out in the Jackson 5 as a percussionist but later contributed vocals, assuming a more significant singing position in 1976 when Jermaine left the band, and they rebranded as The Jacksons.

Despite being part of the so-called 'First Family of Soul', Marlon is estimated to be worth just $100,000 (£82k).

Marlon left The Jacksons shortly after the release of their Victory album and subsequent tour in 1984.

In 1987, he released his debut solo album, Baby Tonight, which he also produced. Though the album spawned the hit single Don’t Go, which reached number two on the R&B music charts, Marlon would never release another solo project.

He later reunited with Tito, Jackie, and Jermaine to tour in 2012, and also executive produced and starred in The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty, which chronicled their preparation for the tour.

In the 90s, Marlon demonstrated his business brains by co-founding the Major Broadcasting Cable (MBC) Network, the first minority-owned and operated cable TV network. MBC rebranded as the Black Family Channel in 2004 before being sold in 2007.

Today, Marlon stays out of the spotlight and runs the Study Peace Foundation, a non-profit he founded in 2015. The charity promotes unity in communities across the globe by offering programmes designed to encourage people to live in peaceful environments.

Marlon has been married to Carol Ann Parker since he was 18 years old, and the couple have three children.

Randy Jackson



Randy, the second-youngest Jackson sibling, was born 29 October 1961 and joined the family band in 1976.

His current net worth is unknown, though sources have claimed it’s likely to be less than $100,000 (£82k) due to legal issues.

In the late 70s, Randy was set to launch a solo career with his debut album, How Can I Be Sure?, which featured vocals from his younger sister Janet Jackson. However, the record was never released after Randy was injured in a car crash in 1979.

Randy later reunited with his brothers for the 1984 Victory tour and album. He also founded Randy & The Gypsys, a soul band that released one album in 1989 before splitting.

Since then, Randy has worked behind the scenes in the music industry. During the 90s, he was named director of MJJ Productions and oversaw the official MJJ Source website. He also wrote and recorded songs for his brother Michael.

Today, he's a co-partner with his sister Janet (pictured together) at independent label Rhythm Nation Records. Janet’s 2018 song Made for Now, which was co-written by Randy and featured vocals from rapper Daddy Yankee, was released on the label.

Randy Jackson: bankruptcy filing

<p>Greg Doherty/Getty Images</p>

Randy’s slew of legal troubles over the years have undoubtedly contributed to his low bank balance.

In 1991, he was charged with battery for assaulting his wife Eliza Shaffy and their baby daughter. After pleading no contest, he was placed on two years of probation and ordered to attend a domestic violence programme. Shaffy subsequently filed for divorce.

Randy filed for bankruptcy in 1996. To make matters worse, he was charged with bankruptcy fraud in 2001 after it was discovered he'd failed to list a $21,000 (£13.5k) sports car as an asset in his 1996 filing. But he once again managed to avoid jail time.

And his financial woes don't stop there in 2012 it was reported that he owed his ex Alejandra Oaziaza $500,000 (£323k) in child support payments.

Janet Jackson

Born 16 May 1966, Janet is the youngest Jackson sibling, and she originally rose to fame starring in TV show The Jacksons.

Arguably the most famous Jackson sibling after Michael, Janet is estimated to be worth a staggering $180 million (£148m).

After The Jacksons wrapped, Janet ventured into acting and starred in several sitcoms in the late 70s and early 80s, including Good Times, A New Kind of Family, and Diff'rent Strokes.

She's also appeared in various movies over the years, including Poetic Justice (1993), Nutty Professor II: The Klumps (2000), Why Did I Get Married? (2007), and For Colored Girls (2010).

More recently, she appeared in the 2022 documentary series Janet Jackson, which she produced with her brother Randy. Janet is shown here alongside Eddie Murphy in Nutty Professor II: The Klumps.

Janet is undoubtedly most famous for her decade-spanning music career. Her self-titled debut album was released in 1982 but her big break came with her fourth studio album Rhythm Nation 1814 in 1989.

The record, the first in history to produce a number-one song in three separate calendar years, was certified platinum six times.

In 1991, Janet signed a three-album contract with Virgin Records worth around $40 million (£21m), which, at the time, was the largest record deal ever signed by a woman. She later renewed her partnership with Virgin in 1996, signing a four-album deal worth a rumoured $80 million (£52m).

Today, the five-time Grammy-winning artist has released 11 studio albums. Her latest offering was 2015's Unbreakable, released via her own record label Rhythm Nation which she runs with her brother Randy.

Janet Jackson: new tour

Janet kicked off her latest tour, titled Together Again, at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood in April 2023.

The 34-date US tour is the singer’s first in four years and celebrates her decades-spanning career.

The 40-song set list features all her biggest hits, such as Control and Nasty, and new music like Enjoy and Like You Don’t Love Me.

Janet Jackson: divorce settlement



In 2012, Janet tied the knot with her third husband, billionaire Wissam Al Mana (pictured on the left with Janet). The Qatari businessman is the executive director of his family company the Al Mana Group, which specialises in luxury goods, fashion, and jewellery. However, the couple called it quits in 2017, shortly after the birth of their son Eissa.

The couple's prenuptial agreement reportedly stated that Janet was entitled to $100 million (£79m) if the marriage lasted five years and an additional $100 million if the pair had a child together. Reports at the time suggested the singer could have expected to receive upwards of $200 million (£158m) after the divorce.

Janet's separation from her second husband, dancer Rene Elizondo, in 2000 was the reverse. Following a three-year court battle, she was ordered to pay her ex-husband $10 million (£6m) plus legal fees.

Janet Jackson: auction

In May 2023, Janet auctioned off over 1,000 items from her personal collection, including custom-made stage costumes, gowns, accessories, and cars.

The auction took place via Juliens, and the top sellers included Janet's 2003 Aston Martin Vanquish Coupe, which fetched $70,400 (£55.6k), and an outfit she wore during her Rhythm Nation tour that sold for an incredible $81,250 (£64.2k).

All proceeds from the auction were donated to the child advocacy charity Compassion International.


Janet Jackson: New York apartment



Janet put her New York apartment (pictured) on the market in 2022, selling it for $8.8 million (£7m).

She originally snapped up the Manhattan home for $2.8 million (£2m) in 1998. The 2,100-square-foot property has three bedrooms, an open-plan living and dining area, and boasts breathtaking views of Central Park and Billionaires’ Row.

Janet currently lives in London with her son Eissa.

As we've mentioned, a 40% share in the Michael Jackson estate went to Michael's mother Katherine following his untimely death in 2009.

A further 20% of the estate was donated to charity, while the remaining 40% was split among his three children, Prince, Paris, and Bigi (pictured together), who are also set to inherit Katherine's slice of the estate in the future.

Far from being stereotypical trust fund kids, let's take a look at how this trio make their money outside of that incredible inheritance...

Prince Jackson



Born 13 February 1997, Prince Jackson is the eldest of Michael’s three children. His mother is Debbie Rowe, who was married to Michael Jackson between 1996 and 1999.

Today, Prince is estimated to be worth $100 million (£82.5m).

Prince Jackson: entertainment explorations

It once looked like Prince was planning to follow in his famous family's footsteps with a career in showbiz. He was a guest correspondent on Entertainment Tonight in 2013 and, later that same year, made his acting debut with a cameo in teen drama series 90210.

However, he's since opted to step away from the spotlight, joking in an interview with Today that he "didn't get that gene" when it came to singing and dancing.

Prince Jackson: philanthropist

Prince (pictured here with sister Paris) founded the Heal Los Angeles Foundation in 2016 while studying business administration at Loyola Marymount University. The charity tackles child hunger, homelessness, and abuse, and both La Toya Jackson and Paris Jackson are ambassadors for the organisation.

Passionate philanthropist Prince further demonstrated his entrepreneurial skills by setting up media company King’s Son Productions in 2016.

The organisation has created several music videos, with Prince credited as a producer on each. It does appear that Prince may have hit pause on this particular project, as the company hasn't been active on social media in several years.

So how does Prince spend his fortune? He lives in a lavish pad in the Rancho Palos Verdes area of California, which reportedly set him back $2.2 million (£1.8m).

He's certainly no stranger to living in the lap of luxury, having grown up at the opulent Neverland Ranch (pictured) in California with his father and siblings.

Paris Jackson



Born 3 April 1998, Paris Jackson is Michael Jackson's middle child and only daughter. Like her big brother Prince, her mother is Debbie Rowe.

Paris is also estimated to have a fortune worth $100 million (£82.5m).

Like much of her famous family, Paris is a talented musician. She formed the band The Soundflowers with her ex-boyfriend Gabriel Glenn in 2018 but has since gone solo.

Her debut album, Wilted, was released in 2020. This was followed up with a three-track alternative music EP The Lost in 2022, and more recently, grunge-inspired songs Just YouBandaid, and Hit Your Knees. She's played live at numerous festivals in recent times and has also teased a new album.

So is Paris set to follow in her father's footsteps and dominate the music charts? Watch this space...

Paris Jackson: actress



Paris has tried her hand at acting: the multi-talented starlet has appeared in movies including Gringo (2018) and The Space Between (2021).

She's also starred on the small screen, with roles in shows such as Scream: The TV Series, American Horror Stories and an episode of 2023 series Swarm.

In addition to music and movies, Paris is also a successful model. She's graced the covers of Vogue and Rolling Stone and fronted campaigns for brands including Gap, Stella McCartney, Calvin Klein, and Dundas.

In April 2022, she was named ambassador of vegan makeup brand KVD Beauty.

Commenting on the partnership at the time, Tara Loftis, Global Vice President of Marketing & PR at KVD Beauty, revealed that "there's no one we'd rather work with than Paris for this exciting journey".

Paris isn't afraid to splash her cash and snapped up a $3.8 million (£3m) mansion in Los Angeles in 2022.

Her lavish abode boasts a swimming pool, art studio, and incredible views of the Hollywood Hills.

Before that, she owned a $2 million (£1.7m) home in the Topanga Canyon area of California.

Bigi Jackson

Prince Michael Jackson II is the youngest child of Michael Jackson and was born via an unknown surrogate on 21 February 2000. Once known by the nickname "Blanket", he now goes by the name Bigi.

Like his brother and sister, the young Jackson heir is thought to be worth an impressive $100 million (£82.5m).

Bigi Jackson: film director?

Unlike his older siblings, Bigi tends to stay out of the spotlight. However, he offered fans a brief glimpse into his super secretive world when he launched the YouTube channel Film Family with his brother Prince.

The duo shared their opinions on movies including Birds of Prey and Sonic the Hedgehog on the channel – but haven't uploaded a new review since March 2020.

Film fanatic Bigi has previously expressed an interest in working behind the camera, revealing to Good Morning Britain in 2021: "I'm not that kind of person who sings and dances. When I grow up, I want to be a director."

Bigi celebrated turning 18 in 2020 by purchasing a $2.6 million (£2m) mansion in California's star-studded Calabasas area, home to A-listers such as the Kardashian family, rapper Drake, and singer Miley Cyrus, as well as his grandmother Katherine.

His seriously enviable abode (pictured) boasts a library, swimming pool, gym, and home cinema – and sounds like the perfect place for the budding director to call home.

Jaafar Jackson

Born on 25 July 1996, Jaafar (pictured with LaToya) is the newest rising star of the Jackson showbiz dynasty.

Jaafar is the nephew of Michael Jackson. His parents are Jermaine Jackson and Alejandra Oaziaza.

Various online sources place Jaafar’s net worth at a respectable $4 million (£3.3m). So how does he make his money?

Jaafar, who’s been singing and dancing since he was 12, released his debut single Got Me Singing in 2019.

The rising star has also flexed his vocal abilities on social media, sharing covers of artists such as Sam Cooke and Marvin Gaye.

Jaafar Jackson: acting debut

Jaafar will make his acting debut playing his late uncle Michael Jackson in an upcoming biopic titled Michael, which started filming last year.

"It's incredibly exciting to watch Jaafar bring Michael to life," director Antoine Fuqua told Variety. "There was such a spiritual connection when I first met Jaafar, who has a natural ability to emulate Michael and such a great chemistry with the camera."

Jaafar was selected following a worldwide casting search to find the perfect actor to portray the King of Pop. The movie's producer Graham King described Jaafar as "the only person to take on this role".
