Jermaine Jackson -- Deadbeat Dad Without Wheels

12/3/2010 10:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jermaine Jackson owes so much in back child support his driver's license has been confiscated, and he's not getting it back until he antes up around $100,000.

TMZ has obtained court documents showing Jermaine owes $91,921.55 in child support for Jaafar and Jermajesty.  $3,000 a month really adds up.

The docs, filed by the L.A. County Child Support Services Dept., suggest Jermaine hasn't been very forthcoming on his income stream.  According to Child Support Services ... Jermaine claims his monthly income is $1,448 per month, but never filed the proper paperwork to support it.

The Department doesn't want to give Jermaine his driver's license back until he pays in full.  We could not reach Jermaine for comment.

Pretty interesting ... Jermaine's baby mama, Alejandra, has just been kicked out of the Jackson family homestead in Encino and she's none too pleased. 


Will Alejandra seek revenge?

Stay tuned

Jermaine slams back at TMZ
Friday, 03 December 2010 21:49 | | |
Jermaine Jackson Entertainment released the following statement today:
Jermaine Jackson slammed back from Europe at TMZ’s web article’s characterization of him as a deadbeat dad today and stated: "TMZ never gets it right, the media always pulls this kind of stuff when I’m away, and I take care of my kids and my family.” Jackson’s family law attorney, Jeff Sherter, Esq., stated in response to the TMZ article: “Jermaine does have his drivers license, he is a committed and devoted father, pays for his children's expensive private school and food, his ex-wife is moving from the Mansion to be put up in an upscale condo and not to the streets, and the TMZ article is a selective report of pleadings that misrepresent the proceedings, facts and final outcomes of the case and should not be considered or evaluated in the context of isolated court papers reflecting only one snapshot of a one-sided and inaccurate portrayal that is part and parcel of nastiness that may overcome any litigation.” Jackson’s Entertainment Attorney Bret D. Lewis, Esq. stated that Mr. Jackson is considering legal action for defamation against TMZ.

I don't get this. No one in the Jackson family seems to think of any other job than singing and dancing. All of the cousins, etc., said to Oprah they want to sing. Jermaine seems to refuse to get another type of job, too.

If one of Michael Jackson's brothers was a financial advisor or an entertainment lawyer I am sure Michael Jackson would have chosen that brother to be in charge of his estate.If I have a brother as talented and rich as the late Michael Jackson I would study accounting in college to take care of his money.Jermaine Jackson should go to a community college and learn a workable trade instead of relying on his fizzled career as a Jackson 5 singer.

Jermaine Jackson needs to work hard and make money to be able to take care of his kids instead of waiting to receive money from his mother Katherine Jackson.Jermaine needs to hire himself a new agent and work on TV like doing 'Dancing with the stars' for example.He is lazy I suspect.Because Latoya Jackson is working hard on the reality show 'Celebrity Apprentice' which airs early next year.

this is not a billionaire family. all of their money was coming from mj because none of them work steady. by the time of mj's death, he owed so much in legal issues that he was practically broke himself.

Thanks for that, Kay:
Jackson’s family law attorney, Jeff Sherter, Esq., stated in response to the TMZ article: “Jermaine does have his drivers license, he is a committed and devoted father, pays for his children's expensive private school and food, his ex-wife is moving from the Mansion to be put up in an upscale condo and not to the streets, and the TMZ article is a selective report of pleadings that misrepresent the proceedings, facts and final outcomes of the case and should not be considered or evaluated in the context of isolated court papers reflecting only one snapshot of a one-sided and inaccurate portrayal that is part and parcel of nastiness that may overcome any litigation.”

I wrote that we shouldn't pay too much attention to the story as there have been many false stories printed here e.g. that Katherine had sued for divorce....as we all saw on Oprah, this isn't true and Katherine said 'It will never happen'. This is exactly the sort of crap that Michael had to endure, and as much as I don't like Jermaine, I don't believe he should be lied about like this.

Clarification: I wrote that when the story first was posted, but it was deleted. Why?

poor kids, they are the one that will have to deal with being teased, what a ****ed up situation. As it is stated fact is stranger than fiction. Jermaine Jackson, was it that good that you had to betray your own brother. You hear about so called friends doing this but brothers? Out of all the women in the world Jarmaine had to pick his brother's girl. I wonder what ever became of his kids by Barry Gordy'd daughter and if he ever took care of them.

he should have stayed with his first wife. He would not have any money problems now. But he didn't want a nice decent woman. He wanted that golddigger. So he got what he wanted, now he has to pay for her.

If he hadn't cheated on hazel none of this would have happened period end of story and if he hadn't made Word to the Badd he would still have a chance at a career . I agree with 125 100% sometimes keeping it zipped is best

I live in the same neighborhood as Jermaine and we regularly see him hanging out with his brothers having starbucks and going to the movies. He is far from broke I'm sure of it, just by observation. The man dolls up and spends hours in the mid day on the couches outside just drinking coffee. Anyone who has that much time mid week and mid day must have money coming in from some where. He is always relaxed and smiling, him and his other brother. Jermain is also never without his model lady, who I'm sure would not be with him for love alone, judging from her very expensive car..and spare time.

Jackson Family Values: Memories of Madness is a book by Margaret Maldonda that has 2 sons by Jermaine. It is interesting and really shows what life with Jermaine was like as well as some of the going ons inside the Jackson compound! I recommend reading this!
