Michael Jackson Facts

Michael came from a huge family of 9 siblings (5 brothers and three sisters). However, many people do not know that Michael lost a younger brother, Marlon’s twin Brandon, who died 24 hours after birth.

He grew up in a relatively poor family in a small house with two bedrooms to share among his 11 family members. Michael’s father was strict and did not allow them to have any friends. 

When Michael changed his skin to white, many fans and critics thought he hated how he looked because of the childhood abuse from his father. Later, the ‘King of Pop’ explained that he suffered from vitiligo.

Michael’s Neverland Ranch was partly an amusement park featuring a petting zoo, railroads, roller coasters, bumping cars, and more. He also loved pet llamas and kept two of them, one named Lola and the other Louis. 

Although he was a public figure, Michael preferred a private family life. He had three children: Michael Joseph Jackson and Paris-Michael Katherine Jackson from his second marriage with Debbie, and Prince Michael Jackson II, whose mother’s identity remains unknown.

The pop star has two stars on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame; one from the Jackson 5 music band and another from his solo music career. His career rewarded him with 13 Grammy Awards, 5 Billboard Music Awards, 6 Brit Awards, and 24 American Music Awards, among other awards. 

Michael survived a near-death encounter when his hair caught fire while filming a Pepsi commercial in 1984. He suffered second-degree burns and was treated at the Brotman Medical Center, later renamed after him. 

In the year of his death, Michael Jackson was the best-selling artist. 

His death crashed the internet on June 25, 2009. AOL, Wikipedia, and Twitter all crashed at 3:15 pm, less than an hour after the tragic announcement.
