One of the nation’s remaining Jacksons is broke, TMZ reports:
Jermaine just filed new child support papers in L.A. County Superior Court -- obtained by TMZ -- grousing that he's expected to pay $3,000 a month in child support for sons Jaafar and Jermajesty ... even though his average monthly income for the last year has been under $1,100.
Jermaine is asking the judge to slash support payment to $215 a month. According to the docs, Jermaine made a onetime appearance on "Big Brother" back in 2007, raking in a handsome $450,000 for his troubles -- but since then, Jermaine claims his business has floundered.
No idea what he did, but half a mil for showing up once on a TV show ought to last you a while, so we’re not exactly overflowing with sympathy here. You might say “he’s a Jackson, and hence required to keep up a certain standard of living,” and I’d say “hence?” you really say “hence” in daily conversation? Good for you. As for the “Jackson” part, I’m not sure the lesser Jackson men are under any obligation to impress the commoners anymore. It's not as though we learn that a Jackson is living in a normal house instead of a palace with butlers and servants and an underground harbor with a private sub, and we wonder, what happened to America? Why can't we keep our Jacksons in the style to which they are accustomed?
One more thing: Jermajesty? Seriously, fella, jermajesty? How much did you want your kids beaten up after school?
Could be worse; he could have named them “Relevant” and “Pertinent.”
