La Toya Jackson wed her longtime friend and business partner Jeffre Phillips in Los Angeles ceremony on December 6, according to RadarOnline.
Katherine Jackson and La Toya’s nephew Prince Jackson both reportedly attended the private ceremony.

The older sister of Michael Jackson, and Jeffre Phillips met in 1999 when they worked on the movie Shriek If You Know What I Screamed Last Friday the Thirteenth, according to their company website.
Jeffre Phillips proposed earlier this year on La Toya Jackson’s reality show, Life With La Toya.
This is the second marriage for La Toya Jackson, who was previously wed to manager Jack Gordon.
Rumors have swirled that Whitney Houston had an affair with the then-married Jermaine Jackson in the mid-1980s, and now sister La Toya is joining the fray.
During an appearance on The Talk today, La Toya Jackson says: “He has admitted that they had an affair.”
A report in The Sun, however, provides more salacious details.
The paper claims that Whitney Houston and Jermaine Jackson were together for a year, and that Houston’s hit song “Saving All My Love for You” – about a woman hooking up with a married man – was a thinly veiled ballad to her clandestine paramour.

Michael Jackson reportedly knew about the affair but didn’t approve. At the time, Jermaine Jackson was married to Hazel Gordy, daughter of legendary Motown founder Berry Gordy.
After Whitney Houston’s death, a video surfaced of the couple singing a duet back in 1984, which – if The Sun’s report is to be believed – would have happened around the time of the affair.
Jermaine Jackson caused a small stir two weeks ago when he retracted a press release announcing that he had dedicated his song “The First Time You Love” to Whitney Houston, and claimed it had been sent out without his knowledge.
