Joe Jackson molded his sons (The Jackson 5) since they were small children to be consummate performers and professionals. His taskmaster-like dedication landed the boys a deal on Motown Records and made them teen idols. As they got older, they tired of him dominating their career. Jermaine Jackson left Joseph’s management in 1975, with Michael following suit in 1979 on his way to mega-stardom. By the mid-1980s, all of the Jackson’s had abandoned Joseph, including youngest daughter, Janet. Janet would also go on to become a superstar after assuming more control of her own career.
