Jermaine Jackson

Pay Child Support

Or Go Directly to Jail

1022-jermaine-jackson-01

Jermaine Jackson could be playing to 5,000 people soon ... the inmates at a L.A. County Jail ... a place he may be calling home soon if he doesn't ante up back child support.

Jermaine is falling farther and farther behind .... he's required to pay baby mama Alejandra Jackson $3K a month for 13-year-old Jermajesty and 17-year-old Jaafar … but the mailbox has  been empty for months.

Court docs obtained by TMZ show … of the $12K that he owes in back payments … he’s only coughed up a measly 85 bucks.

The L.A. County Child Support Services Dept. has filed papers asking a judge to hold Jermaine in contempt ... which could put him behind bars for 20 days.

BTW, this isn’t the first time Jermaine has slacked off.  He belatedly paid $80,000 back in March 2011 … and anted up another $33K in back support this past May.  He's also had his wages garnished.

If the current case goes before a judge, Jermaine is gonna have a hard time explaining how he dropped $160K last month for a Ferrari.

She's baaaack    

He's probably still shltting in his pants because he was so sure the Jackson family was going to clean up on the lawsuit and he'd be on easy street again until the next lawsuit. What the hell is going on with his cheeks? It looks like his plastic surgeon put marbles in them.

The purchase of the Ferrari was pretty much a huge slap in the face.

I'd still like to know how this d**chebag could get away with purchasing a $160...K Ferrari, even if it wasn't financed. Don't dealers have to do at least a DMV check on all buyers? Someone that delinquent on their child support should be flagged in systems like that to prevent them from buying extravagant gifts for themselves while their children languish.

WhyNot    

Don't throw him in jail. Seize the car, sell it and give the money to the baby mama in trust payable at 3K a month until they are out of school. Too easy
