Jermaine Jackson is in a bit of a pickle.
The brother of Michael Jackson is stuck in Africa and cannot come back to the U.S. until he pays what he owes in child support - which is nearly $100,000!
During his trip to Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, Africa, Jermaine's passport expired. However, he was unable to renew it because of the 2008 order his baby momma Alejandra took out, which required him to pay $3,000 in child support.
Jermaine hasn't paid up and under California law, if someone owes more than $2,500 a month in child support, the State Department of Child Support Services automatically informs the FBI of the delinquency, which then flags the person's passport. If the passport expires, it will not be renewed until the debt is paid.
He will not be able to renew his passport until he pays his child support.
Sources say that the American Embassy will issue temporary papers to a U.S. citizen in special circumstances, but as for now, Jermaine is stuck.
It's time to pay up, Jermaine.
