Jermaine Jackson

NO LONGER a Deadbeat Dad

5/17/2011 3:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jermaine Jackson is FINALLY caught up with his back child support payments ... TMZ has learned -- after coughing up roughly $80,000 to his baby mama.

As of January, Jermaine owed Alejandra Jackson $91,921 in unpaid child support -- but sources close to Jermaine tell TMZ, the former couple reached a settlement in April for an amount closer to $80k.

And get this, Jermaine actually paid the settlement amount IN FULL -- according to new court docs filed last week.

Slow clap.

What took him so looooong! He knew he owed that "alley cat" money and she wasn't going away. Is he still stuck outside of the USA due to an "expired" passport? If he had been paying this obligation all along, his poor mother wouldn't have felt obligated to shelter his brood to begin with. He's a "sorry" excuse for a man and I don't understand why "ANY" woman would want to be so bothered with him.

Pretty good trick for a guy who was crying poverty when he was dragged into court.

Did mommy save his butt again or has he made some other deal?

So Michael's money and Mama Katherine have always taken care of and paid all of the expenses for Alejandra and her kids, and Jermaine still has to cough up $80,000+ to this woman. Crazy. Not saying Jermaine shouldn't pay child support, he most definitely should be taking care of his own and always should have, but little Miss Alejandra certainly has got a sweet deal going on. Didn't she just know what she was doing when she started messin' with the Jacksons? How do you spell g-o-l-d-d-i-g-g-e-r ...

As first premiered at KIIS-FM’s Wango Tango on Saturday, the highly-anticipated trailer for Austin Brown‘s debut album has hit the web, sparking inevitable comparisons to the young singer’s uncle Michael Jackson and aunt Janet Jackson.

The 25-year-old singer/songwriter is the son Maureen “Rebbie” Jackson and is being called a cross between his late uncle and Justin Timberlake, a comparison most singers thirst for. Austin’s musical influences include Prince, George Michael and naturally his uncle Michael. As a teen, Austin received encouragement from Prince when “The Artist Formerly Known As” heard him playing piano.

“He told me no matter what I did, to keep playing,” said Austin. “He said ‘by the time you’re my age you’ll be able to play anything you want.’ I’ll never forget that advice.”

Austin’s four and a half minute album trailer was directed by Tom DeSanto, the producer behind “Transformers” and “X-Men,” and isn’t bashful about its themes and influences. The video is brimming with homages to his late uncle, both in photos and in choreography and story.

Comments on the YouTube page echoed the sentiment of music fans who championed the new music, “No lie, I’ve watched this about 10 times, that’s hard for me to do with music today. This is really good,” and “That one move in Target Practice segment where he moves forward by wiggling his front foot. I swear it reminds me when his uncle debuted the moonwalk.”

I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360... and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, MadCent.com

Maybe now the American Public can leave the Jacksons alone because they have the right to privacy and to live their own lives as they wish.
Well done Jermaine you proved them wrong!!!!!
You are a great family not only loved by Americans but you have also inspired the world and shown them what being a family is all about.
