Son: Respect Jackson family

2010-05-06 09:35

Johannesburg - Manoli Jackson has called on the public to show respect and not judge his father, Teazers boss Lolly Jackson, who was murdered this week.

"You know, its weird, when he [is] dead people still talk shit about him in everyway possible," said Manoli, on a website set up in memory of his dad.

"How [a]bout some respect for the fatherless son?? huh? How would you like to know your father was murdered! assholes, hope you feel proud of yourselfs."

The Facebook site, called "RIP Lolly Jackson" had already garnered 786 members by Thursday morning.

"To all the haters, plain and simple - "WHO ARE WE TO JUDGE?" said Manoli on Thursday, below a video posted of his dad's yellow sports car.

Exotic cars were Jackson's passion in life, along with women.

A similar website called "In memory of our friend and business associate - Lolly Jackson" had attracted 942 members by Thursday morning.

"In sadness and darkness, comes the light that he will never be forgotten. R.I.P dad, love you. and u will be missed," Manoli wrote on the wall.

His sister, 27-year-old Samantha, also opened up on the site.

"[I] Still cant believe its true! still waiting for you to call me... to come round the corner, to [do] anything please," she said.

A sidebar description on the first site says: "Lolly is a diverse and interesting man who is one of a few that can say that not only have they truly lived life to the full, but also been fortunate to live their dreams to."

Gauteng police spokesperson Colonel Eugene Opperman told Sapa on Thursday morning that no arrests had been made for the murder of Jackson, the owner of a string of strip clubs, on Monday night in Kempton Park.

"At this stage, we are still investigating... and don't want to speculate."

The strip club empire that Jackson built would now be run by his 31-year-old widow Demi, the Star reported.

"Demi is in charge, alongside Lolly's trusted business partners that he handpicked and has had for a very long time, so the business is in good hands," said Teazers' spokesperson Sean Newman.

Demi, a former stripper, addressed staff at Teazers Rivonia on Wednesday night as the club reopened its doors.

She encouraged staff to stick together so that business could continue to thrive.

Samantha confirmed that the family would be "taking it over as normal".

She would not say if the business had been inherited by a particular family member or partner, because the family were "still sorting everything out".

The family was coping, given the circumstances, she said.

"We're just standing together and trying to get through it all," the newspaper quoted her as saying.

Jackson's funeral would be held on Monday and finer details were yet to be released.
