Jermaine Jackson on Jaafar: It Wasn't a Stun Gun

3/16/2010 6:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jermaine Jackson admits his son was in the wrong for ordering something online -- but according to him, it wasn't a stun gun.

Jermaine & Jaafar Jackson: Click to watch
Though extremely vague on what 13-year-old son Jaafar -- who was with him -- actually purchased, Jermaine says he "never touched Blanket" with "that thing."

Jermaine claims he had "no idea" anything was going on.

As TMZ first reported, the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services seized a stun gun during their first visit to the home after the incident. Family members tell us Jaafar fired the gun into a piece of paper but contradicted employees who say he pointed the gun at Blanket and Prince.

you have to be a parent first in order to discipline your children!!! jermaine cant just step in the pic whenever he feels like it to be a dad. he needs to let his mother take care of mjs3 and he needs to be a father to his own children and show them the boundaries that are to be set for his kids. katherine is a grandmother not a keeper for the whole family!!! sue from tampa

DON'T BELIEVE JERMAINE FOR ONE SECOND. HE SHOULD HAVE PUNISHED HIS SON IF HIS SON DID THIS BUT HE NEVER OWNED UP TO ANY TYPE OF PUNISHMENT. IF HE CARES ABOUT HIS SON AND IF HIS SON DID THIS THAN JERMAINE NEEDS TO MAKE SURE HIS SON DON'T DO THIS AGAIN AND ESPECIALLY TOWARD SOMEONE ELSE IF THATS TRUE. DON'T TRUST EVERYTHING TMZ SAYS ABOUT EVERYTHING OR EVERYBODY THEY PUT ON THEIR WEBSITE. WE WON'T THERE SO WE DON'T KNOW IF IT WAS A STUN GUN OR NOT BUT IF IT WAS THAN KATHERINE SHOULD HAVE THEM LEAVE THE HOUSE BECAUSE MICHAEL TRUSTED HER TO TAKE CARE OF HIS CHILDREN AND MICHAEL WOULD EXPECT HER TO TEACH THEM RIGHT FROM WRONG AND TO PROTECT THEM AT ALL TIMES. MICHAEL WOULD NOT WANT THEM TO ACT LIKE THE OTHER CHILDREN IN THE HOUSE. IF ANY OF THOSE KIDS ACT UP THEY SHOULD BE PUNISHED BUT LIKE IT WAS MENTIONED BEFORE WE WERE NOT THERE SO WE CAN'T SAY ANYTHING ABOUT ANY TYPE OF PUNISHMENT. THIS COULD BE OTHERS WHO WORK FOR THE JACKSON'S JUST TRYING TO MAKE TROUBLE LIKE OTHERS DONE TO MICHAEL. DON'T CARE FOR THAT NANCY GRACE BECAUSE SHE DON'T ALWAYS TELL THE TRUTH EITHER IN MY OPINION. THERE ARE MORE INDIVIDUALS OUT THERE WHO WILL LIE AND DO SOMETHING TO STIR UP TROUBLE FOR OTHERS BECAUSE THEY DON'T LIKE THEM. IF THIS IS NOT TRUE THAN KATHERINE NEEDS TO FIRE THE ONE WHO TOLD THE STORY. IF ITS TRUE THAN SHE SHOULD PUNISH HER GRANDSON BECAUSE HE LIVES IN HER HOUSE. CHILDREN NEED TO BE PUNISHED FOR WHAT THEY DO AND THAN THEY WOULDN'T BE IN SO MUCH TROUBLE LIKE THEY ARE TODAY. TMZ REMEMBER IF YOU DON'T PRINT OR TELL THE TRUTH THAN ALL THOSE LIES WILL COME BACK TO BITE YOU ALL SOMEDAY. GOD WILL GET YOU ALL SOMEDAY IF YOU ALL DON'T TELL THE TRUTH. DON'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING THAT YOU CAN READ ABOUT OR SAID ABOUT SOMEONE UNLESS SEEN IT FOR MYSELF.

Jermaine needed a photo-op to show that he spends time with the kids. We all know thats not true, he travels the world in his brothers name. I am sure he probably made the media aware that he was taking the kiddies out for ice cream. What's up with step-mom why is she never around the kids? I don't think life will be very easy for Jermaines kids, GET IT TOGETHER JERMAINE, they come first.

keishalee98. Just to set you straight---nobody's going to bother to read what you have to say when it runs on and on in capital letters. Write normally i.e. capital letters, small letters, punctuation, paragraphs, etc. and that way you won't waste your time. That is if you really do want people to read what you have to say. Or were you just typing for your own pleasure?

Santa Fe Jack, you can save your "breath" so to speak. MANY, MANY, MANY of us have tried to tell her not to type in all caps for literally months now and she continues. I think she may read the story on TMZ, then come in and comment and leave. Surely if she had read our comments she would have stopped it by now, so I am not sure she is reading them. Then again, she could be reading them and just not give a flip.

You are right, none of us read her posts. We don't want to go blind.

I would not want to do business with you or your family if you put folks business on the streets like you have done here. If you're going to tell the Jackson business, at least get paid for it.

It is truly a shame to see how many selfish, irresponsible, narcissistic are in this world today. Michael raised his children right, he had the means, the love, the time and gave it all willing and without thought. He shielded those children from the paps & prying ill-willed people. His family has put his children and continues to do so, in the middle of a pap frenzy. Jermaine loves the attention at anyone's expense. His only job is self-promotion, but without talent what is the point? And what kind of wife do you have that would not want your children around? And why would you have children by your brother's kid's mother? What kind of person, man, deserts his children and responsibilities and expects others to raise & take care of? Everyone lives at the Encino compound because Michael was financially taking care of everything on Hayvenhurst Dr. His entire family except for Janet & Rebbie were living off of him! Janet moved, Rebbie moved, LaToya left with aliens, but everyone else crammed into the family house and never left. All on Michael. Is anyone other than his children grieving? Oh, wait, no time for that, we have to jump right in there and just start taking control and dividing up the money amongst the family. How about taking care of his children properly, in the way they were accustomed, in the way their father wanted, away from the spotlight, in a safe environment---not with the abandoned bastards of your other irresponsible kids. These children already have issues because their parents have left them with their grandmother and ran off, but now these kids are sort of put on the back burner to allow Michaels children to adjust to this new environment while grieving the loss of their father. In the meantime, all the ADULTS are out self-promoting themselves...if it didn't happen for them before, what the difference now? Michael had the talent, they don't, get over it, find your own way and stop living off your brother's back!! Take care of the children you had, it's not your mother's job. How in the hell can you teach your boys to be men, if you can't be a man yourself? Who will then? IDIOTS

I do agree with Jermaine about TMZ! TMZ is not very reliable on alot of their "reports" Jermaine also needs to move his children in with him and start supporting them.

What f-ing idiot savant names his kids Jaafar and Jermagesty? I'm sorry, but in what planet is someone living on when, upon the birth of their child, they even for one second entertain the thought of naming a HUMAN BEING a name with "Jerm" and "magesty" in the same breath? Did this complete sack of nuts think a name like this will be one day perfect to describe his successful, strapping young black son? If I met this child I would not be able to say his name without cracking up laughing, while feeling sorry for him at the same time.

I believe he named his son Jermajesty because Michael named his children Prince. He has always been jealous of Michael and probably felt like he was one upping him by naming his kid Jermajesty. That way it would also be a play on of his own name, which everyone knows it is all about him 24/7.
