In 1991, he released the single "Word to the Badd!", an attack on his brother Michael. Jermaine was angry when he felt Michael pressured L.A. Reid and Kenneth 'Babyface' Edmonds to postpone working on his album to work on Michael's instead. Jermaine said in an interview: "I tried to put some phone calls to him and I didn't get a reply. It's a number of things but it's nothing we couldn't work out, had we spoken, but I wasn't granted an opportunity from his people to speak to him. The overall message is an older brother telling his younger brother to get back to reality. You have done it to the ultimate level, but you're still a person."
Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997 (as a member of the Jackson 5).
Was the first Jackson to part ways with The Jackson 5. He chose to stay with Motown Records, while the rest of the group moved on. This was mainly due to his courtship with Hazel Gordy, daughter of Motown founder, Berry Gordy.
