    Default Tito moving to UK..........or just 'teasing' the press??????

    Tito Jackson is moving from LA to Wolverhampton and he thinks brother Michael would have done the same

    It seems Tito Jackson is done with the constant sun and beautiful people that inhabit Los Angeles and is instead switching it for the unpredictable weather of Wolverhampton.

    Yes that’s right the City of Angels is losing one of The Jackson Five to the West Midlands. Tito says he prefers the people and ‘quiet’ atmosphere of Britain compared to his current home: ‘I am moving here very shortly, I am going to live in Wolverhampton. I think Michael might have moved over here and my sister Janet lives in London – it’s quiet.’

    We hate to break it to you Tito but Wolverhampton isn’t exactly identical to London, and it’s quite a statement to suggest that Michael Jackson would have chosen the small city as his home. The Thriller singer was 50 when he died in 2009 of a cardiac arrest. Tito went on to say how grateful he was to the British public for ‘always’ supporting his family. He told the Daily Star newspaper: ‘The Brits have always had our back.’

    However, if Tito is worried about missing his fellow celebs he’ll be pleased to know he is not the only fan of the city; Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant is vice-president of the local football team Wolverhampton Wanderers.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Motown legend and Jackson 5 member Tito Jackson was a special guest at the Molineux for the club’s Championship game against The Robins on Tuesday night.

    After arriving at the city’s railway station, the 63-year-old was taken to the stadium in a private car, where he spoke to fans and was given a scarf.

    He then went on the pitch before the game and was interviewed about his new album Tito Time.

    Speaking on the experience, he said: “I very much enjoyed my first soccer game in Wolverhampton.

    He had never been to Wolverhampton, but said he jumped at the chance to watch Wolves during a break in his promotional tour of the UK.

    The Jackson Five icon was happy to talk about his new album Tito Time, which is out on sale now.

    He said: “The family members suggested I should take on a project – and I thought it would be great to have a project for the fans too.

    “So I made this album – and it’s my first one.

    “It feels great. It’s a different time, a different day, but it feels great.”

    The album features rapper Big Daddy Kane, diva Betty Wright and soul star Jocelyn Brown – as well as his three sons TJ, Taryll and Taj, who form R’n’B group 3T.

    He said: “It was quite different working with my sons from 3T on the new album because they got the chance to tell me what to do. They enjoyed it very much. I pretty much just let them have their way. It was a lot of fun working with Jocelyn Brown on the album too.”

    Looking back at his formative years, Tito sees his childhood fame in a bright light, saying their time travelling the world was ‘very fun’.

    I don't think it's that far fetched Janet and Randy moved to London, he might

    Michael Jackson's brother Tito planning move... to Wolverhampton

    Tito, one of pop legend Michael's older brothers, has sized up properties in Bridgnorth and Compton as he looks to move to the UK in 2018.

    During a house-hunting tour of Wolverhampton, including a visit to the Express & Star's head office, the 63-year-old star praised the city's restaurants, the friendliness of its people and said he keeps an eye out for Wolves' results.

    Tito was a special guest at Molineux last month for Wolves' draw with Bristol City.

    And he said he has kept the club's fixtures on a card in his wallet so he can keep track of their schedule.

    He is flying back to the USA today and said he was sorely disappointed to be missing the West Midlands derby clash against Aston Villa.

    Tito said: "I'm planning to come to the UK for a while next year and spend some real time here.

    "Wolverhampton is one of the places I really like.

    "London is beautiful and has all of the elements I would like but it's a little too busy.

    "When I'm not working I need a place where I can settle down."

    Tito said life in the capital would prove too 'stressful', so he wanted somewhere in easy reach but which allows him to feel comfortable while roaming the area.

    But Wolverhampton has competition – with the Motown star also considering Devon as a future base.

    Tito said: "In London you can't even cross the street without being afraid, because of the traffic.

    "And it goes in the opposite direction to what I'm used to, so I'm always looking the wrong way for cars – but I'm getting used to it.

    "The people here are so kind as well and that's more important than anything.

    "In my hometown on the outskirts of LA, a town called Calabasas, it can also be stressful like it is in London.

    "And the people there are not quite as generous as here.

    "I'm a quiet person and barely go out that much when I'm at home in LA or Las Vegas."

    Tito's unlikely link with Wolverhampton comes through a member of his management team who lives in the city.

    He is looking for a base for when he is in the UK and Wolverhampton is geographically well placed. The Jackson 5 star says he has also fallen in love with the people, its accent and the friendliness of the Black Country.

    Tito’s connection with football – or soccer as he knows it – dates back to his schooldays with his younger brothers Michael and Marlon. A French PE teacher tried to encourage the pupils to try out the sport, but Tito said he and his brothers ‘didn’t really care for it’ as children.

    However, he loved his trip to Molineux last month and said he has been keeping an eye out for Wolves’ results since.

    Tito said if his move to Wolverhampton pans out then he could be a regular face in the crowd at Molineux. The 63-year-old said: “Our junior high school was such a small school that when we had PE the whole school had PE class – not just one group of kids, it was everyone. So I was in the same class as Michael and Marlon even though I was five years older. We had a French PE teacher and he tried to get us to play soccer. At the time we didn’t see any sense in kicking a ball back and forth, and we didn’t really care for it.

    “But over the years I’ve learned to appreciate it as a sport – the stamina and how they use their head and feet.

    “My kids play soccer and my grandson does as well.

    “Going to see Wolves was my first time going in person.

    “I haven’t been following them in great detail since but I have been keeping up with their games.

    “And if I move here I will be a supporter of Wolves at Molineux.”

    The UK is beautiful but Wolverhampton seems like such a random choice. Whatever makes him happy I guess.

    Bridgnorth and the Severn valley railway are attractive in summer, but there can be traffic jams with tourists in good weather and floods in bad weather....
    If someone is thinking of making such a big geographic move, it's best to see the prospective new home at all times of the year.

    Well good for him getting away from it all... the brothers don't always have to say what they do (or what they think is great) Michael would have too.. like no!
    **He lives forever within us**
