She posed for Playboy, warded off an abusive husband, and, according to Wikipedia, “She scored her biggest Billboard Hot 100 hit with ‘Heart Don’t Lie,’ which peaked at number 56.”
And now La Toya Jackson is sweeping into town for a gala party on the 20th, promoting her new book about a whole other Jackson.
It’s officially described thusly:
“In this heartfelt memoir, La Toya pays tribute to Michael’s tortured soul — revealing the intimate moments she shared with the deeply troubled pop legend.
“The first sibling to arrive at the hospital after Michael was rushed there, and the informant on his death certificate, La Toya noticed suspicious details and demanded a second autopsy.
“She unveils shocking behind-the-scenes dealings that she believes led to her brother’s death.”
She also reveals the dysfunctions of her wacky family and of her doomed marriage, with the ultimate observation, “Like Michael, La Toya experienced an upbringing that made her vulnerable to exploitation.”
