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.

I'm so tired of hearing black men claim they can't support their kids! Rich, poor, educated, illiterate, two parent home, or single mother raised....they grow up and spout the same sh*t.
GET A JOB MAN!!! NOT A BUSINESS!!! MOST PEOPLE HAVE JOBS!!
STOP TALKING ABOUT WHAT THE MOTHER HAS GOT!! YOU ALWAYS CLAIM SHE MAKE MORE MONEY THAN YOU. IS THIS THE "BROTHA" MOTTO?
[All the Jackson brothers had kids by expensive fair skinned, non-black women because they wanted kids who had non-black physical traits. Jermaine and Randy have kids by the same woman!! She produces light skinned kids with long (waist length on Jermagesty) reddish hair! It's sick! Michael, Jermaine, randy, Tito- they all bought women to breed certain types of kids and they all have neglected these kids in some way.
Like so many "brothas" they are not their, can't come up with the money to feed the kids, and the burden is now on the "MAMA'S" (mother and GRANDmother).]

Been away from these boards for a few days, but managed to do some research myself, regarding Halima and the pregnancy??

There have been alot of posts on here by people claiming that Halima (Jermaine's wife) is expecting twins, I have since found out that this is actually NOT TRUE.
On Saturday 26th June 2010, Jermaine gave an interview to the B.B.C. World Service, talking about his family.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0086vyg

In this interview, Jermaine talks about his children, and he says "I AM HAVING TWO MORE GIRLS"
He never mentioned that Halima was actually pregnant, but he went on to say that they would be called Mecca and Medina.
Now for anyone that follows Halima on Twitter, they will see that on August 18th Halima tweeted back in reply to a sallydavis222, and she stated "I AM NOT PREGNANT"
That was nearly two months after Jermaine's interview.
So, just where exactly are these two children coming from?
Just interested to know, because if he thinks that it's tough now, finding the money to look after his kids that he already has, then he's gonna find it even harder with two extra mouths to feed.
I am surprised for once, that TMZ haven't picked up on this.
But after all, this is the Jackson family, so nothing would shock or surprise me anymore.
