Jermaine Jackson, the third oldest sibling of the famed R&B Jackson dynasty, is reportedly headed back to court on child support neglect charges for being $30,000 in arrears for two of his teenage children with former spouse Alejandra (pictured), according to TMZ.
The Los Angeles Child Support Services Department (CSSD) has filed court documents petitioning a judge to hold the 58-year-old Jackson in contempt for failing to pay the monthly child support payment of $3,000 for his sons Jermajesty and Jaafar over the course of a year.
Thus far, Jackson has only reportedly contributed a total of $5,621 and still owes another $30,378 in the court-enforced support for his children.
According to CSSD, Jackson is guilty of 12 months of contempt and is scheduled for a child support hearing in August, by which time the owed monies are required to be paid. If Jackson fails to meet his court-mandated financial obligations, he could be slapped with a 60-day jail term.
The current child support situation involving his children with ex-Alejandra is one that Jackson has visited before in the not-too-distant past. In 2011, Jackson faced a whopping $90,000 child support tab but managed to settle with Alejandra for $80,000 and reportedly paid it in full.
BTW, shouldn’t we be referring to Jackson as Jacksun? Afterall, he went to court to legally change his name earlier this year for “artistic reasons.”
