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'll get Mama to do it out of MJ's money. It would do that family some good if these brothers would get a job for once in their lives.

*gosh*! What a fine, upstanding Muslim he is. Taking care of his kids. Good job!

Oh, wait! He's got kids ALL over the place and he doesn't care/support any of them. He's just a big old SPONGE living off MJ's estate and being a major freeloader. How can he stand it? Doesn't his religion come into play here? Why the silence??

It's never about actually having the money or not with these guys. It's about ego. They resent the fact that they have to pay someone they dumped/who left them, so they put it off as much as they can to make the woman's life as difficult as they can. It's pathetic.
