A New York woman is suing Michael Jackson’s older brother Tito Jackson to force him to acknowledge her publicly as his daughter.
The woman, Tanay Rodney Jackson, 25 — pictured above with Jackson, filed a petition in Brooklyn’s Family Court last Summer to declare Jackson her father.
Tanay claims Jackson, 55, began visiting her regularly while she was in her teens. “He told me he was my father when I was 17,” she told the NY Post. “(He would) pop over now and then. He didn’t want it public. He was ashamed.”
Tito is the second oldest of the legendary Jackson brothers. The famed Jackson 5 guitarist also has three grown sons, Toriano, Taryll and Tito Joseph, who formed the 90s singing group 3T.
Their mother, Jackson’s ex wife Delores Martes, drowned mysteriously in the family swimming pool in 1994. Tito Jackson Sued By Secret ‘Daughter’ : Sandra Rose

Re: Is Tanay Jackson Really Tito's daughter?
It's shady weird that she'd message you offering an interview on the basis of being Tito's daughter (unproven) and MJ's musical heir (lies).
If she really was his kid that seems like a weird way to go about it.
Ask her about this lawsuit/DNA test. Ask her for some receipts.
BTW does anyone know who "Tawanda Jackson (born 1972)" is? She was listed on Joe Jackson's wikipedia for a bit but they keep deleting her mention, I was wondering if she's another of Joe's illegit kids...
“He also prophesized that I would one day be a film director bigger than Steven Spielberg. As far as I was concerned, Doe 1 had written my fate.”
Well I think at the very least Tito slept with her mother and her mother told Tito and Tanay that she was his child. Tito know this lady. Those pictures doesnt look like fan pics. The first time I saw a picture of Tanay ( Tanesha Jonelle Rodney) was actually on the New Edition fanclub website back in 2007. She accompanied him to some type of event She took a pic with Tito along with Michael Bivens and Ron Devoe. In the caption it said Tito's daughter Tanay Jackson. At first I thought She was a new artist that he was working with and he was just presenting her as his daughter but 1 year later news came out that she was filing a suit against him in court and ordering him to take a DNA test. She wanted him to publicly acknowledge him.
I aint gonna lie the picture ive seen of them together says he acknowledge being her father in private but publically not so much.
She said that tito didnot show up for the DNA test
