Maureen Reillette “Rebbie” Jackson was born on 29 May 1950, in Gary, Indiana USA, the oldest child in one of the world’s most famous families of performers – the Jacksons, and was a popular singer herself, although apparently in semi-retirement for the last few years.
So just how rich is Rebbie Jackson? Authoritative sources estimate that Rebbie has a net worth of over $2.5 million, accumulated during her career in the entertainment industry now spanning over 40 years.
One of the better known 80s performers in America, Rebbie Jackson has released a number of successful solo albums and also collaborated with her world-famous brother, Michael Jackson, to release a number of successful co-written and sung productions – including the most successful single of her career, “Centipede”. Though Rebbie Jackson has not been active in the music industry for over a decade, she was a true celebrity in her own time, and this is still reflected in Jackson’s net worth.
Rebbie Jackson Net Worth $2.5 Million
Rebbie Jackson was the oldest of ten children born into the working-class Jackson family – has often been quoted saying that she felt like a second mother to her many siblings, having had to babysit them many times. Rebbie enjoyed a particular connection to her mother, Katherine Jackson, and it is likely from her that Rebbie Jackson took her standpoint of family over show business. Indeed, though she was a successful singer, and proficient in the use of several instruments since childhood, Rebbie Jackson was reluctant to follow in her brothers’ footsteps – aged eighteen, Rebbie had many a fight with her father over the matter of her desire to marry and settle down, rather than become a professional singer. In the end, Rebbie got her wish and married her childhood sweetheart, Nathaniel Brown, in 1968.
Despite her earlier misgivings, Rebbie Jackson did indeed end up debuting as a professional singer, in 197, in a Las Vegas performance together with her five brothers – Jackie Jackson, Tito Jackson, Marlon Jackson, Randy Jackson, and of course, Michael Jackson. Together with her brothers, Rebbie signed on with the recording label “CBS Records”, and went on to appear in the Jacksons’ family television variety series, “The Jacksons”. It was the show, together with her long-standing love of musicals, that finally motivated Rebbie to pursue a career of her own. Rebbie Jackson appeared separate from the family in a few musicals as a backing vocalist, but also collaborated with other singers and songwriters including Sonny Bono and Benjamin Wright.
Finally, in 1984, Rebbie Jackson released her debut album, entitled “Centipede”. Production had been slow, and Rebbie always insisted on putting her family before the recording, but once finally finished, the album went on to success, reaching #13 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. The one song that attracted the most attention was Rebbie’s collaboration with her famous brother Michael – named, much like the album, “Centpiede”; it sold over a million copies and was Rebbie’s most successful career single. Soon after “Centipede”, Rebbie Jackson released two other albums – “Reaction” and “R U Tuff Enuff”, which were likewise moderately successful, giving Rebbie’s net worth a considerable boost.
Of late, and after releasing the album “Yours Faithfully” following a ten year break from recording, Rebbie has not been recording. However, in 2011, plans were announced to release a new album.
Today, Rebbie Jackson apparently lives with her three children – daughters Stacee and Yashi, and her son Austin; Rebbie’s husband of 45 years, Nathaniel Brown, passed away early in 2013, having been diagnosed with cancer.
