Stun Gun Mess Connected to Jackson Divorce

3/4/2010 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jermaine Jackson's messy divorce set up a series of events that led to a knock at Katherine Jackson's door by the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services ... TMZ has learned.


Jermaine filed for divorce from Alejandra Jackson in 2004. They fought hard over child support. According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, Jermaine pressured Alejandra to live with the couple's two children -- Jaafar and Jermajesty -- in the Jackson family home in Encino. Alejandra claimed in the docs Jermaine wanted her to live in his mom's home so he didn't have to pay her support.

In legal docs filed last year, Alejandra complained most of the support money she received was from Katherine, frequently in the form of gift cards from Ralphs supermarket -- the very same place Jaafar bought a credit card so he could purchase the stun gun online.

Alejandra has been living in Katherine's home, along with Jaafar and Jermajesty, Genevieve and Randall -- the latter two kids were born during Alejandra's marriage to Randy Jackson, Jermaine's brother. Another minor, Donte, is living in the home -- a child the Jackson's essentially adopted. Add to that Michael Jackson's three kids, Prince, Paris and Blanket and 79-year-old Katherine is juggling responsibilities for 8 children.

Turns out 26 bathrooms and 12 bedrooms came in handy. Who knew?

Jermaine Jackson's children need professional help. When a parent acts the way he does, children feel neglected and do exactly the things Jafaar just did - try to find something exciting to bring into their lives.

If this story is true (TMC is not known for its accuracy), Jermaine is indeed living off his then alive, now dead brother, and he is using his mother in a shameless way. Both he and the children's mother should get ordinary jobs and she should move out. Sounds that is what she wants to do anyway. She is not living the life of an independent, grown-up woman, and her ex husband Jermaine is not living the life of an adult man.

blahh    

During TMZ live, Harvey was talking about "how did the stun gun get
into Jaafar's hands?", and keeping in mind that someone needs to sign
for it when it is delivered or a security guard checks all packages,
etc.
My theory involves Jaafar's two older half-brothers/cousins (same
mom, different dads, whom both happen to be brothers), Donte and
Randy Jr. I think they live with them because they are always lurking
in the background of photos of the kids out and about. Both of them
are aged around 17 or 18 but they both look much much older, but they
are still young and immature enough to think that having a stun gun is
cool. Thats why I think it could have been really easy for Jaafar to
tell one of them and to ask him to sign for it at the door (or just
tell security "it's cool, I know who its from") and then let jaafar
have it, maybe in exchange for being able to try it out once or twice
or whatever.
Boys will be boys. Sometime they just do stupid stuff like that. I
know my little brother has on many occasions.

JEEEEEEZZZ! what a mess! Poor Prince, Paris and Blanket they are caught in family dramas, the only people that should live in that home should be MJS kids plus katherine its about time Jermaine be a man and look after his own children instead of unloading them on his mother. the guy is too busy travelling the world and promoting himself than to look after his own personal family issues.

Poor katherine like as if she doesnt have enough to deal with; gireving for her beloved son, the pending trial and looking after MJ3!

This is just incredible! Is this where MJ's money for HIS kids is going..........to help support his brother's 6 kids and ex-wives??? No wonder Katherine asked for an increase in allowance. This family is shameful........they should all get off their fat duffs and make a living for themselves and their own for once.

Another reason why you shouldn't listen to a man whom you are divorcing. Won't be in your best interest. Why don't these women just go to school and get educated? It beats financially depending on a man. Or when he leaves you high and dry, it will be something to fall back on. If she can't go to a campus, go online. So many are doing it. I don't see a reason why she can't. If worried about paying for it, hey that's what student loans are for. Almost all of America are on student loans. There is no way of getting around it; unless you grew up in Bill Gates's household. Loans are one of the ways you will get educated; unless, you go overseas. Or, apply for school grants that are geared toward minorities. There are ways; she just needs to do her research.

This is better than Jerry Springer. A woman having kids by two of the brothers, kids ordering stun guns, kids trying to stun kids with same gun, child support payments coming from grandma instead of dads (in the form of gift cards, no less). Childrens'service people staying so long at the home, they might be asked to pay rent. Wow! This would make a "stunning" (sorry, had to say that) soap opera. I'm not kidding; I would watch it everyday.

poor MJ's Kids, to live like this, Katherine is 80 years old, she can't take care of 8 children. I'm 37 old years and I want to take care of MJ's children and giving them love and security like Michael did, I love you Paris, Prince and Blanket. I feel Blanket too sensitive, like Michael, and he needs more love than Paris and Prince, I love you Michael soo much and your kids, god bless you
