She co-starred in the Nickelodeon movie Good Burger with Kel Mitchell and Kenan Thompson. Jackson was also featured on the ABC reality series The Ex-Wives Club with Marla Maples and Angie Everhart.

Personal lifeEdit

Jackson was engaged to Kevin Federline, with whom she has daughter, Kori Madison Federline (born July 31, 2002) and son, Kaleb Michael Jackson Federline (born July 20, 2004). The couple separated shortly before Kaleb's birth. After the separation, Federline began a relationship with pop singer Britney Spears. Jackson later commented that Federline's relationship with Spears "wasn't like just breaking up a relationship. It was like breaking up a family", but sustained an amicable relationship with Federline, complimenting his parenting. Federline married Spears, but they divorced after two years.
