Jermaine Jackson has been married three times and has eight children. He first married Hazel Gordy in 1973 while still in the Jackson 5 . Her father, Berry Gordy , was their current manager at the time at Motown Records.

Hazel and Jermaine had their first child Jermaine Jr.(often called Jay) in 1977 . Their daughter Autumn Jackson was born in 1978 .
In 1985 Jermaine had a daughter called Dawn. However, her mother was not Hazel. The couple did, however, remain together until son Jeremy Jackson was born in 1986 to a woman named Margaret Maldonado. Hazel and Jermaine divorced in 1987 after fourteen years of marriage as Jermaine expected a second child to Margaret. Jaimy Jackson was born later that same year to Hazel. Jermaine began his relationship with Margaret Maldonado in 1988 . A year later in 1989 Jermaine and Margaret had son Jourdyn Jackson. The couple lived together in the Jackson family home in California (owned by brother Michael) until 1994 when they separated, having never married.
A year after separating from Margaret Maldonado, Jermaine Jackson married Alejandra Genevieve Oaziaza.

In 1996 Jermaine and Alejandra had a child of their own together - Jaffar Jackson. They had a son together in 2000 named Jermajesty before their divorce in 2004 . This marriage of Randy's ex-wife was rumored to have caused a rift between the brothers. They have now, however, sorted it out as seen at brother Michael's trial.
