Tanay Rodney Jackson's lawsuit in Brooklyn Family Court alleges Jackson confessed to her while she was a teenager that he was, indeed, her father although he never publicly admitted their familial bond, the New York Post reported Sunday.
"He told me he was my father when I was 17," the younger Jackson alleges in her suit. "He didn't want it public. He was ashamed."
The 55-year-old Jackson played guitar in the Jackson 5 along with brothers Jackie, Jermaine, Marlon and, of course, Michael, who went on to star status as a solo act, as did sisters Janet and La Toya.
