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.

Jermaine knows his mommy will give him the money because she always has since MJ died. Jermaine is a loser and always will be. He can sing "Smile" to the general population in jail..

Jermaine has cheek implants. His ex-wife Margaret wrote about it in her book. She was married to him at the time.

What an effing SLOB!! Repossess the ridiculous mid-life crisis car he just bought and give his ex the proceeds towards the back child support he owes. I believe he paid cash so she could make out okay on a quick sale deal of his new ride. He's such a loser and always will be. What a selfish, thoughtless POS.

This is probably a ploy to get into the rag mags again. She probably gets the money from them every time he claims not to pay child support.
Don't forget, this is the greediest, most famewhore family in the entire US. If anyone killed Michael, it was them. They pushed him over the edge. All they care about is money. Hence the show they put on at his funeral. You can't tell me they didn't make any money off it. These people should be in jail.

This idiot has money to spend on a car but can't afford his child support payments. I am sure his mama will be the one paying for him. What a sorry excuse for this pathetic, loser wanabe.

Maybe Conrad Murray will lend him some money after he gets a big pay day from his book sales.
