Jermaine Jackson

I'm CHANGING

My Last Name

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.

"Artistic" reasons???!!! The art has NOTHING to do the art with this loser parasite FOR SURE!!!! He always lived off Michael Jackson and has always been jealous and if people has ever been interested in this parasite is just because of Michael Jackson and always will be like that!!! Oh and of course when he kidnaps his own mother and tries to kidnap Michael Jackson's children in the useless pathetic absurd attempt to get his money which does not belongs to him at all LOSER!!!!

Wasn't there a character called "leather man" who appeared in a horror film many yrs. ago? His skin looks horrific. It's too greasy and too leathery. WTH?

I think he may have gotten his hands on his dead brother's stash. He was clearly high when he decided to do this.

Oh Dear God spare us another ludicrous press conference by Jerms announcing his new name... Surely the media can't be that hard up for stories!! Truly there is nothing bright about this name jack-sun... your light burned out LONG ago Jerms.

Why? It won't change his status which "Unknown" with the public. He has never been popular like he wishes, tried to ride on MIchael's coat tails and that did not work either. Nutcase.

This guy and his perpetually greasy face has nothing more to do than sit around and think about how important he thinks he is, and how much "like the sun" he is.... Ok, you were famous in the 60's but not since. That is 40 years ago and it's time to move on and create more REAL worth for yourself....other than new names.
