Jermaine Jackson

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.

There is nothing ARTISTIC about him.................Wait, I know what it is, he wants to patent two things, the patent as to how he shalacks his 1980's fade with the mulet plat in the back of his head and how to get the UTMOST greasiest face. Only he knows how to get your face like that on the planet.

It sounds like what a guy named Jack would name his Tannig Bed business. Come on down to Jack"sSun and get your first tan free.

I can't help but think this was a ridiculous thing for him to do. The pain in the ass of changing all of his paperwork just to change an "o" to a "u" ?!! Why not change it to Johnson or something completely different? Sorry I don't see the point

Dummy. Should have changed it to Jacksan and he would have been listed before his brothers on any billing for a show.
