Michael's brother Jermaine 'set to open five-star resort in Dubai'
Sunday 02 June 2013
Jermaine Jackson has claimed he is speaking with potential investors about opening a five-star resort in Abu Dhabi.
The holiday complex would be named after his 12-year-old son, Jermajesty.
The 58-year-old told The National that he had been scouting for locations, with Yas Island near Ferrari World touted as a possible site for the resort.
“We are very early in the process,” he said. “Talks are going on and it is progressing well. A good area we found is near Ferrari World, so we are looking at that.”
Jermajesty Hotel and Resorts would have a Jackson-family theme and feature an array of memorabilia from their musical careers.
“I feel very honoured and blessed to have the opportunity to do this,” he continued. “The main aim is to make it have the whole family’s history and legacy. I hope that we just keep moving forward on it.”
Once the first Jermajesty resort is up and running in the United Arab Emirates, he said a second location could open in China.
Jackson also told the paper that his brother Michael was in the process of converting to Islam before his death in 2009.
“I remember I came back from Saudi Arabia and I brought him a bunch of books about Islam,” he said.
“One thing about Michael is that he reads everything. He read all the books – about six of them – that I gave him.
“I do know that all of [Michael’s] security and the people that took care of his children became Muslim. As far as him accepting Islam in his heart, I am sure he did.”
