Jermaine Jackson ordered to pay large child support
Jermaine Jackson has been ordered to pay more than $80,000 in missed child support payments. But Michael Jackson's 56-year-old brother claims he is too poor to pay up. A judge in Los Angeles has ordered the Don't Take It Personal singer to pay his ex-wife Alejandra Jackson the... $3,000 a month support payments for their two children, Jaafar and Jermajesty Jackson. Jermaine, who has appeared in reality shows including Celebrity Big Brother UK in 2007, claims part of the reason he hasn't been making payments is because he doesn't have the money.
He told RadarOnline.com: "The $3,000 payment; they judged that off of one show I was on, Big Brother." Jermaine reportedly received several hundred thousand dollars for appearing on that show. However, Jermaine doesn't believe he should have to make the payments, since his ex-wife has been living rent free at the Jackson family compound in Encino, California, for years. He added: "The problem is she's been living in the Havenhurst house for 18 years. She has never once paid a bill. Justice is not justice. It is so unfair.".
