Michael Jackson's Envious Sister

Subscribe To:

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."

However, Michael - who died of acute Propofol intoxication on June 25 - was very affectionate to Yasmine, which upset her mother.

JohVonnie added to Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "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, now 35, never saw the 'Bad' singer again. She claims she is still being shunned by her other famous siblings.

Meanwhile, Michael's older sister La Toya has claimed the star "constantly" feared for his life.

In an interview with Barbara Walters, she said: "I knew Michael was surrounded by people that positioned themselves in his life, positioned themselves to control and take advantage of him.

"And that's what bothered me more than anything else because I knew something terrible would happen at the end.

"Not to mention the fact that Michael constantly told me, 'La Toya... if I die... they're going to murder me, they're going to kill me.' "
