#VintageStyle | La Toya Jackson had no shortage of men wanting to be with her in the late 1970s and 1980s. There was Eddie Murphy, Mike Tyson, Rick James and many more vying for her attention and affection. But in the end it would be a con man by the name of Jack Gordon who would win La Toya's heart -- then shatter it into a million different pieces by controlling her and abusing her. Actually, Jack never did win La Toya's heart -- he just "took it" when he dragged her to the altar and forced her to marry him in 1989. This would be the beginning of a long nightmare for La Toya -- a nightmare that had her cowering in fear as Jack isolated her from her family and routinely beat her. Jack first met La Toya in 1985 when he was pretending to be a television producer. He claimed to be working on a music video show that he wanted La Toya to host. The show never materialized, but a friendship between them did. Jack promised to do wonders for La Toya's career and, sadly, she fell for it. She started obeying his every word, believing it would lead her to superstardom, but it only led her to a life of hell. Jack cut La Toya off from her family and started controlling every aspect of her life. He forced La Toya to pose nude for Playboy and make damaging accusations against her brother, Michael Jackson, and her father, Joe Jackson. He also forced her to do sexual "things" that made La Toya sick to her stomach. Jack even tried to prostitute her out to Mike Tyson for $100k, but Mike Tyson rejected the offer and told Katherine what Jack was doing to her daughter. La Toya was terrified to say no to Jack, as she knew she would get a beating for it if she ever did. In 1993 Jack was arrested for beating La Toya with a brass dining room chair that left contusions on her face, arms and legs. The beatings only got worse from there. Then, in 1997, La Toya finally found the courage to leave Jack after she found out he was going to force her to be in a pornographic film. La Toya fled and never looked back. Today she's living her best life as a survivor while Jack is in the ground... dead... where he belongs!
