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.

The whole Jackson family are a bunch of leeches. Now that Michael Jackson is dead we dont have any interest in you or your despicable family Jermaine(and that goes for your wretched sister Janet too). Go find a deep dark hole somewhere and disappear forever you weirdo.

OMG I have to say all the botox has not done Jerms any favors. Finally his outsides reflect his insides. Karma is bitch Jerms! You reap what you sow... ugliness. This name change also reflects his talent and creative ability without his bro MJ around to sponge off of... What an idiotic MORON!! Jack-ASS fits to a T...

Bozo. Might I suggest changing the first name too, perhaps to Jurmayne? You know, for artistic reasons.

Nobody cares. I think he would be more relevant if he just did himself in, in some public place, so people could take pics, video, and plaster it all over the internet. Go join your brother, a-hole.

The only thing about this news that I find fascinating is that all of the Jackson children have spent their lives changing their looks, and since you can only alter so much, they are moving on to rearranging their last name. Psychologically interesting!
