From a leaked 2003 sex tape with R&B singer Ray J, to numerous openly-suggestive pictures on social media, Kim Kardashian is touted as one of the most openly-sexual public figures of the decade. In a new book, author Sean Smith reveals the model and actress lost her virginity to a Michael Jackson’s nephew, T.J. Jackson.
Yahoo Celebrity reports that the new book, Kim, written by Sean Smith, states that Kardashian names her first crush and love as T.J. Jackson, the son of Michael Jackson’s brother, Tito Jackson. She lost her virginity to him at the young age of 14, according to the book, something she had already confirmed in the past to her mother.
“When I did want to have sex the first time I was almost 15. I was like, ‘I think I’m going to, or I want to,’ and she was like, ‘OK, so this is what we’re going to do, we’re going to put you on birth control,’ and she was like, really open and honest with me.”
T.J. Jackson was once part of the trio 3T, a boy band consisting of himself and his two brothers, Toriano Adaryll Jackson II and Taryll Adren Jackson. The group saw their pinnacle of success with their 1995 album, Brotherhood. The boy band also had a moderately successful hit the song “Why,” featuring the King of Pop himself.
ET Canada reports that Kardashian has visited the Jackson family before, including a trip to Michael Jackson’s former home, Neverland, in Encino, California.
“When you drove up, there were baby elephants and chimpanzees in overalls, and there was all the rides. It was everything you can possibly imagine.”
T.J. Jackson confirmed during an interview with Reveal magazine that he and Kim did indeed date when they were teenagers. The former boy bander is now married with three children of his own, but seems to only have fond memories of his time spent with Kardashian, and remains close to her family.
“I still talk to the family every now and then, though not too much because our schedules are pretty busy. I dated Kim when my mother passed away, so I was actually quite close to the family when I was young.”
Meanwhile, T.J., who was appointed legal guardianship of Michael Jackson’s children, Prince, Paris, and Blanket, revealed in a recent interview with TMZ Live that he wants to protect his nephews and niece, especially during his upcoming reality show, The Jacksons: Next Generation, but at the same time, realizes that the kids are being affected by the secluded lifestyle that comes with being children of celebrities.
“Um, sure my uncle used to cover them up, but now they go to traditional schools. and whenever they go karate or dentist appointments, they’re being followed and pictured and stories are getting fabricated about their lives. At one point you gotta start listening to the kids and they should be have a say in what they want to do. They started to feel isolated and trapped. The older two have said that to me. And it’s something as a parent, I don’t want any of my kids to ever feel any isolation.”
Kim Kardashian hasn’t confirmed whether she indeed lost her virginity to T.J. Jackson, but the busy mom has been spending time preparing for the birth of her 2nd child with rapper, Kanye West. The couple currently have one child together, North West.
