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.

I don't understand this at all. it wont separate him from the Jackson clan, if that's what he is trying to do. It sounds exactly the same, it's just spelled different. Dumb

WHAT THE ****!!! I mean really the Jackson family is so respected why would he even consider changing it? Bad publicity, who knows the only ones I can remember are Michael and Janet!!!

How can someone with no career want to change his last name? What a moron! How about changing your name to Jermaine LaJuane-D Andre, Pillow Case, Jer'Majesty JackAzz? All of you have been around white people too long to be acting this crazy!

He should change his name to Jacksh!t so when someone says "you don't know Jacksh!t", we can say "HEY! You're right!"

I think he eats too many greasy saturated foods---oils, fats, meat, luncheon meats, fast foods, fried foods, etc....his skin would clear up if he could cut that ****T out of his diet. But Jackson vs Jacksun...sounds like an emotional issue that should be worked thru with a therapist first.

Just another desperate attempt to keep himself in the public eye. Jacksun, Jacksin, Jacksen, Jacksan or Jackson. Your whole family is dysfunctional and this isn't going to bring your baby brother (money-maker for the family) back. SAD.

I could not, for the life of me, understand what this gremaine's importance in the family. All of them are relying financially on Michael, dead or alive.

Who really gives a damn if he changes his last name to "The Greediest Leech" of all time. This one has no freaking shame at all, none at all!
