Joe Jackson sells cheap perfumes at a mall
Los Angeles: King of Pop Michael Jackson`s father, Joe Jackson has now been reduced to selling cheap aftershave at a Las Vegas mall.
The 83-year-old music manager, who formed one of the most successful musical groups of all time `The Jackson 5` and also was incharge of Michael Jackson, La Toya Jackson and Janet Jackson, was seen sitting at his kiosk, surrounded by fragrances at a maal, reported TMZ online.
Joe wasn`t exactly swamped with customers and appeared to be dozing-off. He was the special guest at the Julian Rouas Paris kiosk selling Jackson Perfumes underneath a famous sketch of The King of Pop.
The whole operation may be illegal as Bravado International, which owns the trademark to all things Michael Jackson, is suing Julian Rouas Paris, alleging the company never got permission to use Michael`s name or image.
The music mogul managed his famous children in their various incarnations of singing groups. Joe has taken something of a backseat while his other family members have been seen in the spotlight more.
Jackson had a difficult relationship with his father, who is now divorced from wife Katherine, who manages the late pop star`s estate and takes care of his three children.
