His parents are no longer together

They were married for six years. Destin was just five years old when his parents got divorced in 2003.
Azja became a single mother after the divorce.
His mother defended Michael Jackson
His mother defended Michael Jackson when he was accused of child molestation in 2005.
She spoke with Access back in 2009 about the accuser with whom she spent a lot of time.
According to her, when she and Chris met the accuser for the first time, he bragged about Jackson about how he was his best friend and all the things they would do in the friendship that they had.
She, along with her then-husband Chris and Destin, would hang out with the accuser all the time, especially Destin.
Destin would call the accuser his best friend.
While the accuser was sick and undergoing chemotherapy, they were there the whole time and often would spend the night with him instead of his mother.
His mother was never there. She only got to see the accuser's mother after he got better, she said.
Everything was a whirlwind after the family accused Jackson of child molestation, which, according to her, was shocking.
She said she was with the accuser and his siblings in Neverland.
His siblings knew all the security passwords to every room, even the rooms that were blocked off to anyone else.
They knew the codes of Jackon's personal dance room, she said.
She recalled staying the night with them in Neverland when they asked to sleep in Jackson's room.
Jackson was not there, so one of his employees said that he could not allow them or anyone in while Jackson was not there.
When she thought of what the accuser was saying Jackson did, she thought to herself, what child would want to go into the room where those awful things were happening?
Being called to the stand was an emotional experience for her.
She felt betrayed by the family because they had taken someone who had gone to them during their darkest hour and who had tried to show them support that they were not getting from their parents or from other families.
The family had told her that it was Jackson who helped cure the child of cancer, but they turned their back on him, making awful allegations for the sake of money or whatever it was, she said.
