Joe Jackson's Granddaughter, Yasmine, FINALLY Receives Justice After 2020 Stabbing Hate Crime!


It's been a long couple of years for all of us who survived the atrocities of 2020 but even more so for Yasmine Jackson the granddaughter of, legendary manger and patriarch of THE JACKSONS, Joe Jackson.


In 2020 Yasmine was brutally attacked by a neighbor in her apartment complex and stabbed more than a half dozen times. The daughter of Joe Jackson's youngest daughter, Joh'Vonnie Jackson, was attacked by a woman named Angela Bonell who, at the time, was believed to be a Caucasian woman but it was later discovered she was actually a Hispanic transwoman. Bonell allegedly attacked Jackson with a knife, stabbing her and yelling racial slurs in front of several people.


Five witnesses said the incident began with Bonell standing on a balcony and throwing a broom down at Jackson and her friend, Dymin Dilaurentis, before jumping from the balcony. Bonell had previously complained that Jackson was “too loud,” records show.

Jackson recalled the event on her GoFundMe campaign saying:


"My friend and I were outside having a conversation when out of nowhere she ran down a couple flights of stairs then jumped down from the second floor and jumped over fence. She then started chasing us down the street. I was split up from my friend and while I was running I began having an asthma attack. I ran up to two guys who didn't help me. People were recording the incident but didn't help. When she caught up to me she pulled a knife out and began slashing and stabbing me. As I was bleeding, I lost energy as I was trying to fight back. Finally, a few people started yelling at her and one guy pulled her off. She also yelled at a Black man near by and called him a nigger."




Now, more than two years later, Jackson has finally received justice. According to a statement that her mother made on Instagram, Bonell received the maximum sentence for her crime. Joh'Vonnie Jackson said that it "took every emotion" in her body to give her victim impact statement but thanked the judge, the District Attorney and the Nevada Victims Advocacy program.

Bonell, who was 22-years-old at the time of the stabbing, was originally charged with a hate crime, attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon. Little is known about Bonell other than she is from Florida and originally set up her social media pages identifying as male before she transitioned.


We're glad that Yasmine Jackson was able to get justice for this horrific event in her life and we hope that she can now move forward with her healing.
