Jermaine Jackson

Name Change Complete ...

Officially a JACKSUN

breaking news

Call him Jermaine Jacksun ... with a "U" ... because as of this afternoon, that's legally his name.

We've learned ... an L.A. County Superior Court judge approved the singer's petition for the name change, which the 58-year-old filed back in November. 

TMZ broke the story ... the man formerly known as "Jermaine Jackson" had said he wanted to make the change for "artistic reasons" ... whatever that means.

Jermaine was not present during the hearing ... because he's off in Europe performing with his brothers ... the Jacksons.

ok, so can please somebody explain this to me, please ?
The difference between Jackson and Jacksun seems to be important enough for legal procedures to be needed.
Why was no action required to correct MicHEAL to Michael, or Joseph to Joe, back in October/November 2011 ?
I am from Europe and I dont know the US legal system.
Can somebody explain this to me, please ?

Looks like all the stretched skin from Jermaine's cheek implants have slid down his face. It's ridiculous things like changing his last name is why their own children get teased in school even though the Jackson4 blame it on the media. That entire family lives in a fantasy world and couldn't face reality if they were hit by a mack truck. Watch this short video how Jermaine throws Michael's children under the bus when HE was one of the siblings who kidnapped their mother last summer.

Another attempt for publicity and it still won't work. Jackson is your heritage the name that made him famous. If anything it shows how demented he really is.

So many people calling him "JackASS", how original. I agree the name change was pointless, but it's his right. And saying he has no talent just shows how deaf, blind or jealous you are. The Jackson's, including Jermaine, all have more talent than what's out now. They all have more talent than you idiots judging them. You all just like dumb.
