Jermaine's Child Support Plea -- I'm Broke, No Joke

9/26/2010 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jermaine Jackson claims he can't afford to pay child support because his business is failing and his career is in the tank -- in fact, according to new legal docs, MJ's bro can barely make ends meet.

Jermaine just filed new child support papers in L.A. County Superior Court -- obtained by TMZ -- grousing that he's expected to pay $3,000 a month in child support for sons Jaafar and Jermajesty ... even though his average monthly income for the last year has been under $1,100.

Jermaine is asking the judge to slash support payment to $215 a month.

According to the docs, Jermaine made a onetime appearance on "Big Brother" back in 2007, raking in a handsome $450,000 for his troubles -- but since then, Jermaine claims his business has floundered.

Jermaine claims his baby mama Alejandra not only earns more than him ... but she gets a free ride along with his kids at the Jackson compound, thanks to Katherine's generosity. Katherine has asked Alejandra to move her family into a nearby Jackson condo but Alejandra has refused and Katherine won't put her foot down.

Jermaine is doing a show in October, he'll be able to make some money. Alejandra is getting alot of help from ejrmaine's mom so she shouldn't complain her kids will always be well taken care of.

I don't think katherine ever asked alejandra to move out, katherine said she loves her grandkids company and the house is huge. Plus TMZ said he's move out in June and they are still there!

And more people coming out of the woodwork that were living off MJ all this time are now suddenly broke and struggling. Imagine that.
Hey Jermaine - GET A JOB. Don't you have a brother working in a grocery store? Why can't you?

Jermaine is a LOSER. What about all the money he made the last 4 decades?

Get a job for 25,000 a year like everyone else. I saw Jermaine's home in that reality show. He has a georgeous kitchen with stainless steel appliances.

Jermaine doesnt WANT to support his sons, he'd rather let old Granny Jackson use Michael's money to pay for Jermaine's trash.

10, Natasha, you are so right!

Where is Murray's mugshot?
Where are those video security tapes?

Where was Murray that night for real?

We will never know what really happened to Michael, but I suspect he was murdered via Murray who took directions from AEG.

I think that Alejandro has to go if Katherine asked her to go. She has a lot of sons and personnel that can help throw her out.

And Jermaine was in a show here in The Netherlands too "Move like Michael Jackson" he made money I'm sure of it.

Perhaps "Jergusting" should have heeded his brother's advice.

This guy should have a court ordered vasectomy if he can't afford to pay for his kids. His new wife is pregnant with twins so things aren't gonna get any better. Lucky for him that the MJ gravy train is still going strong and keeping a roof over his other kids heads. How pathetic.
