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 do recall hearing early on that MJ hand-picked Murray-AEG didn't want him and MJ shoved the doc down their throat as a condition for the tour. The reason was Murray was amenable to doing things MJ's way as far as the meds were concerned.
________________________________________________________________Dr. Conrad Murray - Michael Jackson Doctor and the Godfather of Soul James Brown
By Graeme Massie
Aug 3, 2009

Michael Jackson's doctor (Dr. Conrad Murray) was also the physician to the late Godfather of Soul James Brown, according to reports. Dr. Conrad Murray is at the heart of the probe into the June death of the King of Pop from cardiac arrest. Murray is allegedly among a group of 'feel good' physicians to work for high-profile celebrities in the 1990s, the New York Post claims.
"James Brown and Michael Jackson were inseparable and they used the same 'safe doctors' - doctors who would get them anything they wanted," Brown's longtime producer and assistant Jacque Hollander told The Post. "If James Brown wanted drugs, he knew he could get them from these safe doctors in Dallas, Houston, Las Vegas and Los Angeles."
Brown died from heart failure in 2006, but was reportedly battling an addiction to painkillers at the time. Hollander claims that Brown's wife Adrienne was a patient of Murray's when she died in mysterious cir***stances. Police reports state that she died two days after receiving liposuction from an unlicensed spa, not connected with Murray.
Authorities investigating Jackson's death have already raided Murray's Houston offices and his luxurious home in Las Vegas. He has reportedly told them that he injected Jackson with the powerful sedative Propofol on the day of the star's death.

@Leeds, Jermaine was on the British version of Celebrity Big Brother in 2007, he came second. Shilpa Shetty won that show.

Boo Hoo.. when I lost my job due to a car accident I still had to pay, it's just the way it is. Cut a record and make some money.. no really don't do that. Just get a job or start selling some of your stuff on ebay and hope that someone thinks it's worth the bid.

This type of behavior reminds me of people I've known over the years who worked for commission versus a regular, hourly salary. They never knew where their next paycheck was coming from, or when. When they were in the money, they splashed it out lavishly - new cars, bigger apartments, got married, had kids, took vacations, etc. Once the money was gone tho, they were flat broke until their next "big" deal came thru. They wouldn't even have put a couple of bucks away for an emergency. It was spend, spend spend. This seemed to me to be almost like a gambler's mentality. A regular, boring day to day job would have seemed like failure to them. They felt like they were special and had to have the thrill of scoring big to make them feel successful. It was a real roller coaster ride being around these people and I didn't stick around long. Years later, I saw one of these guys on the news. He'd murdered his wife and tried to make it look like a home invasion. It finally came out that he'd married this woman for her money and when she realized what a loser he was, had tried to kick him to the curb, he killed her. I'm sure he was egotistical that he honestly thought he could put one over on the police and inherit her money. I feel sorry for 80-something year old Mrs. Jackson.

Cry me a uking river. Get a job like my children had to do or quit screwing every female brought into the family, or ask Thome Thome, find out who stole out of MJJ's home after his death.

Keep this up and I may have to look toward you having a hand in MJJ not being here.

What have you done to try and see what happened to your brother? I don't trust this one.

wow! Broke like everyone else? Welcome to the club buddy. We've all had to tighten our belts due to the economy. Maybe a yard sale is in order, or perhaps unloading a few cars, and I'm sure there are ways to 'cut back' on every day living expenses.

Yes Jermaine has all of these kids but don't just blame him blame the mothers too because they knew what kind of man he was when they laid down with him. Alejandrhoe has always gotten a free ride from the Jacksons. She is not a good mother and Jermaine wanted his kids to come live with him because she abused Jermajesty. She knows he doesnt have any money because she petitioned the court to base his childsupport off of his wife Halimas income also. She is always traveling with Genevive (Randys daughter),always has the latest handbags and is always at events. You never see her with Jaafar or Jermajesty. We have to remember that this is the same woman who had children with Randy, then Jermaine all the time still married to someone else. She's lived at Hayvenhurst forever and has never paid for anything so why does she need so much money. She asked for $1000.00 for pet expenses.

If his income is not what it use to be and she makes more money then what is wrong with him asking for a change? Alejandrhoe does not need that much childsupport when she does not have any bills. Why don't she let Jermaine take his son's like he wanted to and she pay him childsupport (lol)

The whole thing is a mess but she knew what she was getting into when she had those kids. Maybe she should have had kids with Tito or Jackie they seem like they're a little more financially stable.

Gsharon 710, I totally agree with you on this one, I have just found out that Halima (Jermaine's wife) is actually cousin to none other than Thome Thome! I find that really spooky. But, reading between the lines of your post, you already knew that for yourself. The plot thickens!!

He had some good ideas to bring in revenue but his family would not cooperate, or show up ,or attend. What a slap in the face. Why didn't they bury Michael in Netherlander and split the funds for that? Who ever shot that down is a big dummy. Elvis family did. His brothers seem like they don't get along. the short one is so arrogant and prideful. I am sorry for Jermaine because he is Part of The Jackson 5 and thats who we fell in love with.
