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.

It appears that the family have skin problems like thousands of others. Believe me, you can have beautiful skin today, and in six months it can change so much you want to never go in public. Remember that when you feel the need to speak of a problem someone has and may not can do anything about it. For all we know it could be worse than what is showing, so be careful about things like that.
