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?

Encino may be Katherine's home but it was Michael's property. Alejandro got financial support from Katherine?? Katherine got her money from Michael and she still gets money from Michael's estate. So, the bottom line is...Michael is STILL supporting all these parasites. No wonder he wanted little or nothing to do with his family. As for Jermaine.....GGGGRRRRRR. He's a complete leech. Get rid of Jermaine's kids. The house is for Katherine and Michael's three children not for the million of hangers-on. Jaafar seems like a VERY jealous young man and needs attention before it's too late. Today a stun gun, tomorrow....who knows what??

The Jacksons are trashy low-life bottom-feeders, how sad for Michael Jackson's kids to be sucked into their sleazy lives. And why is an 80 yr old woman caring for EIGHT children?

You know, MJ could've lived 40 more years in Indiana.

Unluckily, he had to live for the world of backstabbing idiots such as his lazy mother, "friends", JOE & his mentally-deficient brothers.
In the last 2 DECADES, where're music recordings of these LIVE brothers? So-called talented family?
The JERKMaine Jackasson family ignored MJ. Now everyone abuses the kids, BUT Michael was treated like the worst criminal
when he wanted sick kids to survive!

This is EXACTLY why KATHERINE requested more money from the estate, in order take care of this posse. It is the trustees responsibility to step in and see how the money is being spent. Thank goodness, impaired as he might have been, Michael had the good sense to appoint trustees that were professionals and not family members. Could you imagine if Katherine (and Joe) would have had immediate control of the entire estate. New Bentley's all around!!!

I don't want to bash the Jacksons, because after all they lost their son and brother. Except for that EGOMANIAC, Jermaine. He just said in an interview in Holland, when asked if it was true that his family is taking advantage of MJ, money- or otherwise:
"Michaels is succes, is Jacksons' success. There would have been no MICHAEL JACKSON without US". This is how arrogant the guy is. Why won't the family stop him wandering about REPRESENTING them and MJ? And why is it always JERMAINE, LATOYA OR JOE being interviewed after MJ passed. These 3 are exactly the ones who helped the Tabloidpress bring him down and hurt him so much. Sorry to say this, but right now I think they would be better off with their birthmother Debbie Rowe. They would be OUT of the limelight for a change. Katherine is MJ's mother he loved so much, but reality is that she is too old to bring up those kids by herself. So now she must depend on a nanny, her 60-year old daughter Rebbie and a disfunctional twice-ex-daughter-in-law. Since 25 June 2009 I cry everyday for MJ's kids. Imagine being with a Daddy who adored them, took care of them like a mother usually does, and now this......RIP Sweetheart, we pray for your 3 little Angels!!

This whole family is so f@cked up it's ridiculous. All of them...every single one of them is a useless mess. The Mother doesn’t have a chance looking after these kids. They should all be sold for science experiments.

I don't believe this story. On the Jackson family Dynasty series which aired a couple of months ago the couple appeared to be happily married. As far as the amount of people staying in Katherine's house who cares it is her house no MJ is gone. Those are all of her grandchildren not just MJs and I would hope that she loves them all the same. Where would some of us be without the help of our grandparents. And I am sure as children MJ3 enjoys playing with other kids. MJ did not hate has family that is crazy. They have stuck by him throughout all of his legal battles. I think like all of us at times we get fustrated with our family but at the end of the day those are the people who have our back. He even mention how he loves all of them in This is It. So as far as the critisium of the family it needs to stop because they are not perfect and neither was Michael.

The press need to stop beating up on the Jackson family. Most families have problems with teenagers, especially boys. So this is not unique. Not like the kid murdered anybody like those Columbine kids or the Menendez boys.
