La Toya Jackson

Abuse runs in the Jackson family, and history repeated itself when La Toya married her manager Jack Gordon in 1987. La Toya later claimed the abusive marriage hit rock bottom after Gordon beat her unconscious and left her for dead. The couple divorced in 1997, after which La Toya urged other women, "If he hits you once, I promise you he will hit you again, so please walk away, please."
