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.

I hope Katherine doesn't bail him out again by paying the back due. Her best action as a mother would be to force him to sell the stupid car and pay his obligations himself for the first time in his life.

Just another useless dead beat dad ... and he's a GHOUL living off his dead brother. SICKENING. A lousy role model for his children.

Oh to be the fly on the wall when he explains how he can afford the Ferrari but continuously falls behind on his support obligation. PLEASE let it go before the judge. LOL

c'mon, he won't do 20 days. He'll do a couple hours and then be released, because of "overcrowding". And jail time will not fix a dead beat dad......they should be going after his assets. Duh!

Jermaine is:
a dead beat father
a hypocrite to the millionth degree (follow your own religious principles dude)
a douchebag after buying the expensive car before paying child support.

The reality is that this man is not gainfully employed and should have future child support payments reflect his job status. Does the ex work? He should be made to sell off that Ferrari, pay off past due support, and he and the ex should come up with a new plan for support payment because he is obviously broke. The ex should realize she cannot get Jane money or the kids money through Jermaine. They all need to go back to court and fix the mess. Every story is about money.

He has spent his whole life taking money from his mom and dead brother. What a loser. Let him go to jail because that is the best place for him. Maybe he will run into Conrad there.
