Pop superstar Michael Jackson’s niece Yashi Brown has spoken about her battle with bipolar disorder.
Brown, the daughter of the Prince of Pop’s oldest sister Rebbie Jackson, opens up about the mental illness in the latest issue of JET magazine.
She was diagnosed when she was in her 20s but the 33-year-old says she was able to keep the mood disorder under control even when her famous uncle died in June 2009.
Brown says: “Besides my uncle on my father’s side, Uncle Michael was the closest person that was kin to me that had ever passed away.
“Fortunately his death was during the time that I was on the right dosage of medicine.
“It was a very emotional time.
“My parents, my cousins, my uncles, my aunts; all we wanted to do was be together. We went to my grandmother’s house every day. We all just stuck together and our love got us through it.”
