La Toya Jackson, 31, sister of superstar Michael Jackson, has left the family compound in Encino, Calif., and is looking for her own digs in New York. Meanwhile, she's staying in a $1,100-a-day suite at the Waldorf Astoria, People magazine reported. In addition to her search for new digs, she also has forsaken her father, Joe, for a new manager. Jack Gordon, a Las Vegas businessman who took over La Toya's career two months ago. "My father would tell me what I should do and I'd just listen," she says of Joe's managerial style. "I didn't ever voice my opinion. If I questioned him, he'd scream at me so I wouldn't dare." Life in the Big Apple so far has its flip side because she looks so much like her brother. "I don't go out and walk around," she says. "That's what's so sad. I'd love to go out and shop or go to the movies but people surround me and want to know about Michael." Any social life at all? "I can count the number of dates I've had on one hand," she says. "I wish that guys would approach me but they don't."
