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.

Pleeez. I am sure mother Katherine gave him the dough. Jermaine and a few others are still living off Michael. Katherine wants more money, even though she gets 26,000.00 A MONTH to take care of the kids. Even though the estate pays for almost everything.what do YOU think??????

And his skin looks like leather why? I thought that black people didn't wrinkle.

I'm guessing he got the money from his mother who has been selling everything Michael to make a buck. No doubt it wasn't for herself, but her sorry family. No one really believes Jermaine has money.

Jermaine looks like he is made of very poor quality plastic - same with his hair!

Jermaine has confirmed that his memoir of his brother Michael will be released in September. The book, entitled Michael, You Are Not Alone, includes details about Michael’s life and music. It had been due out in October, but the release date has been brought forward to September 13 in the UK and US so it does not coincide with the trial of Conrad Murray.

On Twitter, Jermaine said he didn’t want the book to come out at the same time as Murray’s trial:

“This memoir will now stand as a testimony to the real Michael & his true character, reminding the world who he was, moving forward,” he said. It won’t cover the trial, but will “defend Michael’s memory first & foremost with the truth”, he added.

As far as I know, basically Michael is the only Jackson brother who married white women. The other wives were usually African-American mixed with other races as well. Alejandra is Latina. And so what! I mean, what's your point?

the money came from 1 of 2 sources ...poor michael or sweet janet..
GOOD GRIEF - janet is the only alive working, sensible jackson sibling. the 30 plus jackson kids, need jobs too. they have too many options not to, good grief.

To 3 storms and Arwen, you can stop pretending that Jermaine's current wife is poor!
Anybody with half a skull knows that Halima Rashid Jackson foots Jermaine's bills!
She made a point of letting Michael and the family know this fact by leaving Jermaine in Africa until she got good and ready to pay that check!
I for one am glad she did it! Now all of the MJ fanatics can see who really had Jermaine's back... And Jermaine got some time to rest!

TMZ commentators are filled with judgmental hooey. Not a one actually cares about the child, but they are now ready to rake Jermain over the coals, after he made good. Seems as though no matter what he did, he'd be hated. Is anyone here without sin? Like the rest of us, Jermain is just doing the best he can. It's none of our business. But what more can you expect from visitors to a website that lives and breaths from the fall from grace of others. TMZ, what a rag.
