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?

This is disturbing. Jermaine is not respecting his 80 year old mother. She is a gracious lady and loves her grandchildren but Jermaine is taking complete advantage of her and so is Randy! Katherine should have 3 kids living with her. Those children are sacred to me because I love their Dad very much. Please somebody do the RIGHT thing and move these others OUT of the home.

************************************************

JAAFAR IS NOT THE PROBLEM IT'S HIS IRRESPONSIBLE
IMMATURE CLUELESS FATHER AND HIS 4TH/5TH WIFE !!!
THIS SITUATION COULD HAVE ENDED VERY BADLY!!!
CHILDREN NEED SUPERVISION "IT'S CALLED L O V E".
WHEN IT COMES FROM A PARENT
OCTO-DAD NEEDS TO TAKE CARE OF HIS OWN CHILDREN
INSTEAD OF DUMPING THEM ON HIS 80 YEAR OLD MOTHER.

JAARFAR, LIKE ANY YOUNG ADOLESCENT NEEDS A FULL-TIME
FATHER FOR GUIDANCE AND SUPPORT
GROW UP JERMAINE "YOU HAD YOUR TIME", NOW IT'S THEIRS.
BE A FATHER TO YOUR CHILDREN..
MICHAEL UNDERSTOOD PARENTING!!! (HATERS NEED NOT RELY)

I AM SO WORRIED ABOUT PRINCE PARIS AND BLANKET
THEY HAVE BEEN THROWN INTO THIS QUSTIONABLE SITUATION
(ESPECIALLY PARIS BEING THE ONLY LITTLE GIRL AT HAYVENHRUST)

I THINK IT'S TIME FOR MJ'S KIDS TO GO BACK TO NEVERLAND
IT'S THE SENSIBLE THING TO DO ***

Repeat:
32. It scares me to think that Michael´s children are not being treated as did his father or at least as much similar, i think the responsibility in this case is NOT of the children, is again an act of IRRESPONSIBLE ADULTS.

THANK YOU MICHAEL!

Repeat:
50. Probably no one likes what I think!

I feel that the interest of Jermaine about Michael´s children, are not the feelings, the distress of children, i think is a monetary guarantee for Jermaine future and their descendants, hope I'm wrong!

THANK YOU MICHAEL!

Here it seems that no one works, all have lived more or less of Michael Jackson.

Mrs.Jackson, the monthly money that you receive from wealth managers of Michael, is for maintenance of MICHAEL´S CHILDREN, (food, educators, psychologists etc etc) not for to keep a bunch of slackers.

Now I understand why she wanted more money :(

(When Prince, Paris and Blanket are older, will not be a penny)

THANK YOU MICHAEL!

Gone too soon    

Katherine has been used from day one. Joe used her (abused her?), she was totally in his hands all along. Now when he is gone from the house, Jermaine uses his mother in the most disrespectful way.

I wonder if the Jacksons have some issues with women, some of them sure treat them bad. It seems like both LaToya and Janet have (or used to have) very low selfesteem and selfworth. Just like Katherine.

I think Michael took notice of this and wanted to avoid becoming like his Dad and some of his brothers....that´s why he had problems with his relationships. He respected and honoured women but after that kind of upbringing he did not have any good rolemodels.

It is articles like this that make me want to spit nails. When will responsible journalism happen. Will a lesson be learned from what is really happening.




It's a complete lie, why do people buy these papers? It's not the truth I'm here to say. You know, don't judge a person, do not pass judgement, unless you have talked to them one on one. I don't care what the story is, do not judge them because it is a lie.

Just because it's in print doesn't mean it's the gospel.

People write negatives things, cause they feel that's what sells. Good news to them, doesn't sell.
Michael Jackson

The press has made up so much...God...awful, horrifying stories...it has made me realize the more often you hear a lie, I mean, you begin to believe it..

This is SAD, Why would any woman in her right mind allow the father of her children, religate her to live with his mama so he would not have to pay child support and be issued out a grocery store food card. Where is this womens independence and ability to raise her own children in her own household. Frankly Katherine is not a young woman and it is horrible how her children (except Micheal) have dumped their responsibilities on her! Whether she enjoys it or NOT!!!!!!!!!!!
Jermaine needs to do whatever it takes to pay child support and the Mother needs to develop some skill and go to work and get in her own household with her children!!!!!!!!

TMZ, get your story straight. Randy was NEVER married to that woman, he only dated her.

Furthermore who cares about this. Hollywood is full of messy divorces and this one is mild compared to what the big stars have going on.

What about Charlie Sheen, Mel Gibson, Madonna, etc.?


I AM SICK OF HEARING ABOUT THE JACKSONS.

TMZ must not be able to get any other stories like the more respectable gossip sites. And as usual you get the facts wrong.

Something I NEVER thought I would say--Michael Jackson's kids were better off in the strange environment they were being raised in with him. I think there was clear dysfunction in their lives living with an unstable father, but he did everything he knew to protect them. How horrible for them to go from a loving home into this utter chaos. Michael's children need to be removed. Period.


Think what you like of Michael Jackson good or bad, but this is about children being subjected to a clearly horrific living situation, and their inheritance is funding it.

Why is there a picture of Michael Jackson?


I'll tell you why. It is the lure TMZ uses for all of its stories.

Just because you got lucky and reported his death first does not make you Jackson experts.

Get some other news and build your reputation. Stop recycling old news, its pathetic.

By the way Alejandra and Randy were never married. You are definitely making up that story.
