The Big Reunion's 3T: 'Politics halted our music career'

By
3T have opened up about the demise of their career as a vocal group.

The Big Reunion stars - consisting of Taj, Taryll and TJ Jackson - told ITV's Lorraine that things outside of their control led to a halt in their music career, following success in the mid-1990s.


"It was just more politics and things that prevented us to continue our career," said Tarryll.

Taj added that "outside forces" were to blame for the group not performing despite never splitting up.

TJ - who is co-guardian to their late uncle Michael Jackson's children - said: "Things in life got in the way so we went back to make sure our lives were in order before we continued our career."

The brothers also opened up about the death of their uncle in 2009, and how TJ became co-guardian to Prince Michael, Paris and Blanket.

TJ said: "Since my uncle passed - we lost our mother at young ages too - and that's a very hard thing to get over, so when my uncle passed, my brothers and I, we told our grandmother we'll be there for her and do everything we can to help her and the kids.

"It's been hard, it's been tough, this is why it's taken us so long to come out [into the spotlight again] as well because our focus has been them, to make sure they're back on track and adjusting as best as they can. They're doing really well... it's a hard position they're in but they're doing well."


Speaking about the group's first performance together at the Big Reunion gig tonight (February 21), Taryll said: "It's going to be a lot of emotions up there on stage, a lot has happened since the last time we were on stage.

"This is where it really started for us. We feel like this is our second home, just the love from the UK, we feel it and our emotions from our uncle and our mother, it all comes together and it just takes over."

3T will be joined by fellow Big Reunion stars Girl Thing, Damage, Eternal, A1 and vocal supergroup 5th Story at tonight's gig at London's Eventim Apollo.

The Big Reunion continues on Thursday (February 27) at 9pm on ITV2.
