Jermaine Jackson Still Loves His Wife Despite Her Arrest For Assaulting And Biting His Leg
Jermaine Jackson has revealed he still loves his wife of 11 years following her arrest for assault. Halima Rashid was arrested for allegedly attacking him and biting his leg over Thanksgiving weekend. The 60-year-old told TMZ him and his leg were ‘fine’ after the alleged assault.
‘It’s obvious, I’ve been with Halima for 11 years, I still love her, things happen.’
Jermaine has not, however, spoken to his wife since her arrest on Saturday night but said ‘she is still my wife’.
Halima, 38 was arrested after the couple reportedly had a dispute at their Woodland Hills, California home, which got ugly and led to the 60-year-old star calling police on Saturday night. She was booked and jailed for five hours before being released on $50,000 bail.
Jermaine met the wealthy Afghan native in January 2004 at a Starbucks and the couple were married eight months later. They don’t share any children together.
Jackson converted to Islam in 1989 during a trip to Bahrain.
