His parents got married in the year 1968 after Rebbie’s father vehemently opposed her decision to initially enter into marriage. Joseph Jackson had wanted his first daughter to become a great musician like her younger siblings but his plan really didn’t work out as Rebbie had no interest in music even though she won several singing contests with her beautiful voice.
Rebbie and Nathaniel were childhood sweethearts, one major reason the former didn’t want him to slip off her hands. In the long run, Joseph eventually allowed his daughter to tie the knot with the young man but refused to walk her down the aisle.

She is currently married to popular musician/songwriter/producer Rex Salas and together they share one son named London Blue Salas (born July 25, 2005).
