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.

i agree, what a total piece of sh!t.
if he says he doesnt have the money, then he is either lying, or incredibly stupid.
either way, it is not his kids fault.

Jermajesty! HAHAHAHAHA! Obviously, he's too dumb to think up any good names for his kids. How could he possibly know anything about earning and saving money? Loser.

Anyone who names their kid Jermajesty should automatically be stripped of any earnings he's ever made. I love how irresponsible people are!

Awwwwwww, poor guy can't afford to pay the private tutor for his sheltered kids! Not only is he NOT a role model for these kids but they don't even stand a chance in this world, do they? Their Uncle Michael is on some other planet, Auntie Latoya was obviously concieved too close to a microwave oven, Auntie Janet is well, jeez she seems the most normal even though she flashed half the universe her boob, and the rest ...? This guy has no clue what it is like to be broke, Germaine, start putiing cheap gas in your Rolls, better yeat sell it for a used Chevy ... something like a 1978 Chevette ... good on gas. Sell your house and move into something more reasonalbe. And for the love of God go to school ... you might learn something. Macaroni and Cheese instead of sirloin. No name juice isntead of freshly squeeaed. Less eggs, more oats, and bacon only once a month. Get used to canned soup and day old bread. Cheap margarine, Turn the heat down in the house and put on a sweater instead. You won't need domestic staff when you move to Orange County. You don't need 10,000 channels, get basic cable and go to the library. Fire your manager, poor people can't afford them. Use your head, you collossl doofus! Wimp! Whiner! And WEAK. You are a weak excuse for a man, Germaine Jackson. It is time to stand up and be counted among the living instead of the privilegedf!
