Jermaine Jackson -- Foreclosure Victim

12/21/2010 9:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jermaine Jackson could become homeless early next year, because the house he's living in is going up on the foreclosure auction block.

TMZ has learned the 5 bedroom, 6 bathroom Calabasas home Jermaine is renting is on the brink of foreclosure ... set to be sold on the steps of the Pomona, CA courthouse on January 21.
The minimum bid, according to Foreclosures.com, is  $2,184,233.

It is unclear if Jermaine even knows the owner is about to lose the house. Under California law, he has 60 days from the time of foreclosure to vacate.

Jermaine -- who has lived in the house for a year-and-a-half -- filed a police report in September, claiming someone stole $150,000 in jewelry, furs and clothes from a suitcase in the house.

And there's more ... Jermaine is behind on child support to the tune of nearly $100,000, and he's asking a judge to reduce his support payments from $3,000 a month to $215 a month.

But one ray of hope.  Katherine Jackson rented a mansion just a few blocks from Jermaine's home, so maybe she'll take him in.

perhaps his wife is paying the rent there. this place possibly being foreclosed on really has nothing to do with jermaine.people pay their rent and it doesnt necessarily mean the landlord pays the mortgage with it .this is happening all over the country..
next thing u know , the house u r living in is being foreclosed ...
as far as his child support..
what was his income that they made it so high to begin with?
his wife must have been able to show that income.
was it temporarily high when he was doing tribute concerts or perhaps he has tough times like many people do..
that would have nothing to do with mj..

Michael supported all of their unemployed, lazy @$$e$ up until he died. Now that Mama has his $, it'll fall to her. I'm betting she won't be as lenient as MJ was, tho. Time to kick the losers to the curb, along with your sad excuse for a husband. If Jermaine can't afford $3k a month in child support, he has no freaking business living in a $2million home.

I think Jermaine is a sociopath! he doesn't pay for his kids but he lives like this? He seems to be only worried about himself. How does a guy with no job even afford a house like that?

I would like to know what happened to the home he purchased from Tito back in 2004 for $550k.

Jermaine has no steady gig yet proceeds to upgrade to a multimillion dollar home around the time Michael dies.


Something is definitely not right here....

Let me get this straight. He rents a mansion. He is behind three years worth of child support payments to the tune of $100,000 but has a suitcase loaded with valuables totaling $150,000? Just how should his kids feel about that? Something doesn't add up. His ass should be renting an apartment and delivering pizzas in order to take care of his kids. But no, his mom is raising them. If this mysterious suitcase is ever recovered, the contents should be sold to take care of his kids and use the rest as the first and last months rent on an apartment. I think he is under the illusion he is famous and can live like his brother did. And now he has two more kids on the way. . . . . . . . here we go again.

The 150,000 dollars worth of merchandise that was stolen from Jermaine Jackson I bet he was going to use that money (if it was insured) to pay his child support to his ex-wife. But now he has 60 do leave is house (he's probably not paying rent on it) I wonder if he is going to go live with his "Pimp looking father" who is suing everybody because he needs money. Now that Michael is dead and gone there's no money for them. Mommy Jackson has all the money and she's not going to give anyone any money. That includes "Pimp'n Joe". Hey Jermaine you worthless POS Michael dead and you and your brothers are nobodies. Assh*le.
