Jermaine Jackson -- I Don't Make Squat

2/6/2009 8:43 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jeramaine JacksonJermaine Jackson thinks $3,000 per month is too damn much for child support ... for a guy who only barely made $10,000 in all of 2008.

In a desperate attempt to save himself some cash, Jermaine filed legal papers with the L.A. County courts Wednesday, claiming he hasn't made diddly squat since 2007 -- when he raked in $450,000 to appear on the U.K. version of "Big Brother."

Jermaine claims the current monthly amount he's required to fork over to his ex wife Alejandra Jackson is unfair, because his income from"Big Brother" was a factor when he agreed to pay $3,000 per month in child support in May 2008. Now Jermaine claims he can't afford to keep up the payment because he's had a "significant change of circumstance" -- and only makes $892.75 per month.

Jermaine claims on his current salary, he can barely afford to pay for clothes, laundry, groceries and a tutor for his kids, Jaafar and Jermajesty. Oh, and he also claims he's so strapped for cash, that Alejandra needs to pay his legal fees too.

Awh! Come on, Let's stop with the excuses. It sounds like Jermaine needs to find a job to feed and support children - just like everybody else!

Guess Who?    

Well, stop making bills/kids, especially with your brothers wife. Why can't he find work? He is an able bodied man. He can find work outside of entertainment. So, you can't find work in entertainment, do something else. Don't leave your kids hanging.

Q    

That Joe Jackson sure knows how to raise kids doesnt he? Another whining one here, non serving their Country type, but take take take, take everything they can. Seems to me things were much better for this family when Joe worked at US Steel back in Gary IN and they were all together. Now every last one of them has a story about how pathetic they are.

The Royalites alone from Jackson 5 songs can pay the 3 grand---this guy is a liar.

Jafaar and Jermajesty! The first thing he needs to do is have his children's names changed.

If he is only receiving $892 a month then, it sounds as though he is talking about his social security check.
