Who is Toya Jackson?
La Toya Jackson is an American singer and television personality and is the fifth child of the Jackson family.
She rose to fame on the family's CBS television show The Jacksons, which aired from 1976 to 1977. She was seen as a successful solo recording artist under multiple record labels in the 1980s and 1990s. Her most successful releases included her self-titled debut album (1980) and 1984 single “Heart Don't Lie”.
Despite her musical success, her recording career began its decline in the 1990s. It was a result of her controversial marriage to her entertainment manager Jack Gordon. The Jackson family claimed Gordon brainwashed Toya turning her against them.

According to her, our legend loved vegetables. “He didn’t eat meat so he’d have vegetables constantly and they’re done differently,” Toya explained. “And then, of course, his go-to snack food was always chips.”
In an interview with Mirror Online, she shared, “I love it when we’re all together - the entire family and we’re just being ourselves and laughing and being silly.” She went on: “And we would like to have little group fights, throw grapes and things like that, and my mother would have a fit and say, ‘Stop throwing food!’
