Jeffre Phillips La Toya Jackson Married

Ring those wedding bells! The famous Jackson sibling reportedly said “I do” to her longtime best friend, Jeffre, in a small ceremony in Los Angeles on Dec. 6. Congrats, Toy!

La Toya Jackson, sister to the late Michael Jackson, is officially off the market! The 57-year-old actress and reality TV star reportedly tied the knot with her longtime partner Jeffre Phillips in Los Angeles as her mother Katharine Jackson and Michael’s son, Prince, looked on in support.

La Toya Jackson & Jeffre Phillips Get Married

La Toya and Jeffre, who is La Toya’s longtime friend a business partner, exchanged their vows and said “I do” on Dec. 6, according to Radar Online. With only a few family members in attendance, the ceremony seemed to be intimate and private.

La Toya’s marriage to Jeffre may come as a shock to fans of her reality show, Life with La Toya. In one episode of the first season, La Toya went on several dates in hopes of “finding a boyfriend.” However, that episode was apparently fake, according to the National Enquirer. “She decided to pretend she’s looking for a boyfriend,” a source said, “but she’s been with Jeffre for years. Everyone who knows them personally knows they’re in a relationship.”

The source added that Jeffre went along with the episode because he wanted her show to do well. Now that’s true love — good thing you put a ring on it, Toy!

La Toya Jackson’s Traumatic Past

This is La Toya’s second marriage. She had previously been married her manager, Jack Gordon, under horrendous circumstances. Since separating from Jack, La Toya has gone on to reveal that after being tricked into marrying him in 1989, he terrorized, physically abused, and controlled her throughout the course of their marriage.

Thankfully, La Toya was finally able to escape the traumatic relationship after seven years. And now almost two decades after that horrible experience, it seems La Toya has finally been able to let another man in her life.

We couldn’t be happier for her and Jeffre!

Gay? Where does that even come from. How about a nice person, which is what I think he is. I believe he is IN LOVE with Latoya regardless of when the actual marriage took place. What I find unbelieveable is how her “friend” thinks she has to stick her nose in to EVERYTHING. Maybe that is the way some friendships are, but it would not be for me. I have heard people(other women) talk about sex with their husbands, and always wondered why they were doing it. Maybe it is just me, but some things are private, and that means between two people, and not anyone else.

I saw the episodes where she went on dates. This is a reality show please be real about it. we don’t want you to pretend we want to know about the real you. You don’t have to give us an over abundance of intimate information. if you are real about what you do share with the public you’ll find your show will succeed. I’m very happy for the two of you and I wish you a long life filled with love and happiness. God bless.

So she has joined Star Jones and countless others by marrying a homosexual. This man is more than obviously gay. Must be for publicity and fame, like her pretending to go on dates for someone. They must have thought the story line would be better with a husband, but this one… really?

Perhaps both are asexual. That doesn’t mean they can’t become a legal family and share a life together. They may love and trust one another and completely enjoy one another’s company: a perfect marriage, if not a stereotypical or pornographic one. What’s fake is the hyper-sexuality that Americans, especially African-Americans, believing in their own press, try to project in the media.

Wow. Ok. First of all, anyone desiring happiness fake or real I wish them well. Second, as for your comment of americans, especially african americans that like the hypersexuality publicity. Really?? Where you born this year? We only recently (oh did I mention I am AA) became symbols of ‘hypersexuality’ as you call it. That was started long ago by Betty Boop, betty Grable, Clark Gable and countless others that put the gaga in peoples eyes. We are quite late in the game and hardly responsible for it nor do we corner the market on the likes of Miley Cyrus, Britanny Spears, Channing Tatum, the Kardashians and countless others who want to be remembered for their hypersexuality. THIRD, do you really think this article on their relationship has anything to do with race as you so quickly pointed out. Its about choices dear friend, not race. Wow.

I hope she did not marry him, because he and everyone else close to her pushed her into doing something she did not want to do, she does not look happy.
