Rebbie Jackson’s late husband was her childhood sweetheart
Rebbie first announced her decision to get married to her childhood love, Nathaniel Brown when she was just 18. Her decision somehow created a division in the Jackson family.
Rebbie wanted to marry Brown and move to Kentucky with him. Her mother, Katherine, respected her decision and fully supported her whereas her controlling father was totally against her decision. Her father, Joseph, wanted her to have a career like her brothers and he argued that Rebbie’s marriage would become a hindrance.
Eventually, her father gave in and permitted Rebbie to marry Brown but saying the last word on that matter, he refused to walk his daughter down the aisle. Rebbie gladly married her childhood love in May 1968 and she never had to regret her decision as she shared a blissful married life with her beloved late husband. The two shared more than 45 years of togetherness with love, understanding, and support.
The couple had three children together. Their first child, Stacee was born three years after their marriage on May 5, 1971. They welcomed their second child, Yashi, on October 5, 1977, and son Austin on November 22, 1985.
