Jermaine Jackson

Pay Child Support

Or Go Directly to Jail

EXCLUSIVE

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.

He and his ex-wife-losers! They are both leeches. His wife has kids with both he and his brother??? Are they half-brothers or cousins? What a mess!!! Mama will bail him out-not sure how-she couldn't get the baby mama out of her house. Call the shrink!

The idiot should have to pay Jermajesty for the rest of his life for sticking the poor kid with that stupid name.

can someone answer this> How is putting him in jail going to get money to his kids? I don't understand. I know about having garnishments and bank accounts being drained. But I don't get going to jail.
Either way I agree with all about getting a ca. If he paid cash have it taken away and sold.
Money goes to the kids.

Jermaine had his wages garnished. Where in the hell does he work? Like he has a job. He didn't pay the other past due child support in 2011 and this past May. His mother paid it. All of the Jackson men are DEADBEATS!!!!

Just My Opinion    

Does the mother of the child work too? The child is half her responsibility too! Same as Oksana, Mel Gibson's ex nightmare. Child support is for the child, not for the mother to not have to do a damn azz thing to support their child too., and live like a rich b!tch off of their child's child support money is very wrong.

I am not saying Jermaine shouldn't pay, but he shouldn't have to pay out of the azz big time, because like Mel pays, these b!tches get way too much money in child support.
Well, isn't it just like the justice system? OJ killed two people, and got away with it, because the fricking glove didn't fit him, with all that evidence stacked up against him.. Michael's quack of a so called doctor gave him a drug that he had no business messing around with, that killed Michael, and he gets out of jail. While they wan tto throw Jermaine's butt in jail. UNREAL!!

I do think $3000.00 is high for 2 boys. Especially since the mom chooses to not work herself. I admit I am biased as I worked and supported my 3 all by myself. But Jermaine should pay what the court allows, or go to court and get the amount adjusted.

Wow ...    

Loser. Buys a car he didn't need, instead of supporting his children. Who would have thought a Jersey Shore kid would step up to the plate without a court order, but a Jackson refuses. Shame on him.
