A BUSINESSMAN who is friends to the stars took along five members of showbiz family, the Jacksons, to his nephew's wedding.

Dave Bance, 50, who lives off George Lane, South Woodford, is business partners with Jermaine Jackson, brother of Michael Jackson and original member of The Jackson 5.

Jermaine's children, Jermajesty and Jaafar, and Randy Jackson's children Genevieve and Randy Jr, guest starred at the Sikh wedding over the weekend in Portsmouth.

Also present was the ex-partner of Randy, Alejandra.

Mr Bance said: "The Jacksons are like my own family and I was happy that they could make the wedding.

"They attended the henna night, the wedding ceremony at the temple, and of course the reception party in which they watched various performers who included Signature from Britain’s Got Talent.

"The Jacksons wore the traditional head scarves to respect the Sikh beliefs inside the temple.

"We had to have security to control the fans and guests who could not believe their presence and other guests included various actors as far away from Mumbai the Bollywood film industry.

"It was my nephew's wedding and it was a fantastic occasion."

Mr Bance was also close friends with Michael Jackson and attended his funeral in 2009.

He added: "I have a long-standing relationship with the family and whenever they come to the UK they stay in my house.

"Jermaine sometimes goes jogging in the area."

Mr Bance owns various properties and businesses including night clubs and even his own airline, and says his hobby is 'money-making'.

Surely this is such a momentous event that a blue plaque needs to be erected marking the occasion. Although the actual wedding was in Portsmouth, and therefore quite relevant to an East London Newspaper, I felt that the atmosphere in South Woodford was charged with an ethereal start quality on Saturday night due to our local connection. I shall now walk, or indeed Moonwalk, upon George Lane knowing that in some small way the spirit of the Michael jackson burn brightly in East London. We are not worthy.

David Bance is a liar, he has no relationship with Jermaine or his family, he has a relationship with Alejandra therefor they are there, Jackson 5 never attended the wedding. David is using the kids that is all just like all the rest of the con artists. Take it from me.
