Jermaine Jackson's wife arrested

Jermaine Jackson's wife has been arrested on a domestic violence charge.

Halima Rashid, 38, was taken into police custody over the weekend amid claims she bit her 60-year-old husband's leg.

ET Online reports she was released on $50,000 bail and is due in court in Van Nuys, California, on December 23.

The couple married in 2004 and have no children together.

This incident comes four months after Jermaine's father Joe suffered a stroke and three heart attacks while on a trip to Brazil.

He has since recovered and Jermaine and his siblings paid tribute the doctors and staff who helped saved his life.

They said in a statement: "On behalf of our father, Joe Jackson, we wish to thank the entire staff at Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein for the fantastic care he has received. In particular, thanks go to Dr. Marco Knobel, Dr. Alexandre Pierei and Dr. Jose Luis Guioto for their world class expertise and professionalism."

The Jacksons also sent a message of gratitude to the people of Sao Paulo for all their well-wishes and prayers for Joe.

The statement added: "We also send our love and appreciation to all the wonderful people of Sao Paulo and throughout Brazil for your amazing hospitality, support and prayers. We have been deeply touched by everyone in your beautiful nation and it made a huge difference in our father's quick recovery. Obrigado! The Jackson Family."
