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.

So, let's see. You couldn't argue with the Estate and null and void MJ's Will. Then you went on tour and used MJ's image, FOR SONGS THAT WEREN"T yours, then you trashed talked the Estate yet again, HIJACKED your mother and tried to coral her payment every month to you. Now, everyone has seen you for the s***bag you are along with your siblings....so....you are now going to try and disassociate yourself from the rest of the family?????

Jermaine is as big a douchebag as his father. Michael couldn't stand either of them. You know this has everything to do with money, his god. Another hair brained scheme from an idiot.

I say he should change his name to "Greasy Ass Permed Up California Raisin" or "The Broke Jackson"

Ridiculous..big man in his 50s seem so very lost. He should change his surname to "Ridiculous", end of story. These people are looking for press time, publicity...they realise they have no relevance in pop culture, for a while , a long while they were like parasites clinging to Michael Jackson King of Pop. Now hes gone, theres nothing left..so they create the ridiculous news.

WHAT THE F*CK?.........Anyways: Why is it that some of these brothers still have it in their heads that they can be successful in the music business?? They should have moved on with their lives about 25 years ago and put all their energy into being something else. INSTEAD they sat by and watched Michael get super famous (he deserved it), mooched off him for money and tried to bully him into going on a stupid Jackson 5 tour whenever they had the chance.
