Jermaine Jackson

I'm CHANGING

My Last Name

EXCLUSIVE

1107_JERMAINE_JACKSON_tmz
Jermaine Jackson has filed a request to legally CHANGE his last name ... trading out "Jackson" for "Jacksun" ... TMZ has learned.

Jermaine filed a petition for a change of name with L.A. County Superior Court yesterday asking for the change in nomenclature.

In the docs, Jermaine says he wants to make the change for "artistic reasons" ... but he does not give any further details about the move.

The request has NOT yet been approved by a judge -- but a hearing has been scheduled.

Barring any crazy legal situations, Jermaine will be required to have his name change announced publicly several times in the next couple of months before it can be made official. A public announcement consists of having the name printed in a local publication ... just like Ron Artest had to do when he changed his name to Metta World Peace.

We reached out to Jermaine ... so far, no response.

Michael Jackson Was A Pedo    

I don't blame him. Why would anybody want to keep the Jackson name after that family produced one of the most famous pedophiles in modern history?

Jermaine, you can change your name's spelling all you want, but it's not going to change a thing. People are still going to know you're a slimey douche bag who was jealous of his brother all his life. See, we can still see your face, dude, so, the only way you're going to fool anyone from knowing who you are is if they see your name on paper. You're still a douche, Jermaine.

Change to Jackass, and you would get Jay Leno, Lettman and even Rush Limbaugh invitations.

You would also be eligible to be the Democrat's Mascot.

LOL, I thought it was going to be X or some kind of Muslim name. I don't know how artistic or creative it will be seeing that it will be pronounced the same. Oh well, it's his crazy life to live.
