Jermaine Jackson has dismissed rumours of an ongoing feud between his famous siblings - insisting they have settled their differences since the tragic death of their beloved brother Michael Jackson.
The clan was introduced to the world by Motown Records in the 1960s as The Jackson Five, but when the group parted ways with the label in 1976, Jermaine chose to remain loyal to the company and stay put as a solo artist.
Jermaine admits his decision caused tension among his brothers and led to a family feud - but he insists they have all moved on since the fall out.
He explains, "We've had a long history and I guess it started when I stayed at Motown and they moved on (to Epic Records) and we all have our own reasons why we do things. I thought it was the most honourable thing to do at the time, because we were introduced to the world as the Jackson Five at Motown."
The surviving Jackson Five brothers - Jermaine, Marlon, Tito and Jackie - hope their upcoming TV show, The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty, will prove they are just a "normal family".
His brother Tito echoes, "The reality show will express that we're a normal family, that we love each other dearly. Regardless of what people may say, he has my back and I have his back."
The programme was filmed all year as they mourned Michael's death in June (09) and prepared for a group reunion.
