Jermaine Jackson Stuck In Africa Until He Pays Child Support

| Filed under: Legal MattersMichael Jackson

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.

    Africa can keep him and his painted on hair…The only Jackson we need in America is Janet…err…Ms. Jackson (I'm nasty)…



  2. 2

    Hope he's got the money. Otherwise, I hope he likes Africa.



  3. 3

    Anyone who is stupid enough to not check the expiry date of their passport before travelling deserves this kind of bad karma. For once the USA government did something right regarding flagging passports for owing child support.



  4. 4

    Yes good riddance and as a punishment we should send joe to keep him company.



  5. 5

    It would be even better if they made him pay the child support AND stay in Africa.



  6. 6

    99.999% obvious he did this purposefully so mom would clear his debt. Leave him there Katherine!



  7. 7

    Perhaps if he quits buying the wrong color, orangey foundation for his face, he would be able to afford to come back. He probably wants to be stuck, anyway, now that his wife is causing such a stir in California.



  8. 8

    Hilarious! Paging Janet Jackson!



  9. 9

    My question, if this is the case…why was he able to leave the U.S. in the first place? Especially if his pasport was so close the expiring, something doesn't sound right.



  10. 10

    just because he dosnt give her a wad of cash every month does not mean he dosnt provide for his kids. Alejandra lives at the family home, rent free and proberly dosnt even have to pay for food. So what she needed $3000 each month for is anyones guess!
    I bet all the single mums out there who are struggling to raise their children would love their childrens fathers to provide free luxury all inclusive accommodation, with free childcare when needed!!



  11. 11

    First, if he wants to wear orange makeup, he needs to keep his hands away from his face so it not's so apparent. Second, if he can afford a trip to Africa, why can't he afford his child support?



  12. 12

    Umm….how can he pay when he's in a different country???



  13. 13

    Let me see if I get this right: He has enough money to buy a Rolls Royce, go to Africa, but not support his kids. Let them keep the loser!



  14. 14

    MJ Rocks - HE isn't paying to support his kids, his "Mommie" is. Let the loser rot there.

  15. @v@ says – reply to this

    Re: MJ ROCKS!!! – Uhm, it's his mom's home. SHE'S providing all of that. Still suckling, and with that voice. I loooove his voice.



  16. 16

    MJ Rocks: You need a dose of reality. He is a bum, shi "Mommie" is paying to support his kids, not him. He doesn't even work, lives off of his dead brother.



  17. 17

    Re: MJ ROCKS!!! – We all know that when they have the last name JACKSON it's a free for all… meaning free for all to throw stones. If Michael were still here Perez would be talking about him instead. Their would be no mention of Jermaine on here or anywhere else at all. Funny how thing's change in a year and a half time. Perez and others went from calling Michael every name in the book etc. to showing sympathy after his death but now turning all the negative attention to his loved ones. I grew up with a single parent and let me tell yah, if I had my Father in my life plus being taken care of without my Mom receiving $20,000 checks every month I would have been A-ok with that. I'm sure his children aren't as worried as some of you are.



  18. 18

    Re: gorgeous_chik7 – HEY IDIOT, you ever heard of "money-by-wire?" You do realize that you can send money to anywhere on the planet as long as you have either cash or money in a checking account, OR…….WAIT FOR IT…….a credit card. Holy shit, what fucking planet are you living on? And considering he has millions of dollars and a fucking cell phone, I believe he can pay that bill.



  19. 19

    Re: gorgeous_chik7 – I'm sorry, but your comment was SO FUCKING RIDICULOUS I HAVE TO REITERATE HOW RIDICULOUS IT IS.



  20. 20

    In my opinion the arrangement the family has is between them. Mrs. Jacksons grandkids and their mother have been at Havenhurst for years. This just didn't happen after Michael's passing. Jermaine is supposedly paying for his kids schooling and contrary to what people may believe, he is in his childrens life and at the end of the day being in your childs life means more then getting a fat $20,000 check every month. If Mrs. Jackson is at the point where she wants Alejandra to go then so be it, it's her house and she can do that but I think the situation going on over there at Havenhurst is being blown out of proportion once again by the good ole media. No one know's Jermaine's finances. He doesn't make the same kind of income as his younger sister and did it occur to anybody that he could be going back and forth to Africa etc. on buisness? Making money so he can afford support payments as well as their lifestyle.. I am in NO WAY an advocate for deadbeat dad's as I have one of my own but in my opinion I haven't seen anything in Jermaine that would make me classify him as one. Best of luck to all of them and in the end if anybody is using anybody it will eventually come back to them.



  21. 21

    And if I'm correct it's the estate who is trying to get Alejandra and the kids out. That house belong's to Michael's estate and the lawyers working on behalf of Michael's estate are trying to not only keep the $$$ in Prince, Paris, and Prince II (Blanket) hands, but they also want to keep $$$ in their pockets. I think the estate just doesn't like the fact that kids other then Michael's are living on a property that is apart of Michael's estate. Obviously Michael didn't care when he was alive because he could have kicked them out along time ago but now the people working for him can do thing's according to what they want to do. If Mrs. Jackson was to tell the estate to let them stay, the estate could then try and cut her $$$ by saying she is providing for everyone other then herself, Prince, Paris and Blanket whether she is or not. I think in a way, the heads of Michael's estate do take advantage of Mrs. Jackson from time to time and it's sad. Just a thought…



  22. 22

    Why is he orange?



  23. 23

    Re: @v@ – yes i am aware who the home belongs to, which is why i never said it was Jermaines home, i called it the family home because alot of the family live there.
    i was just sharing my opinion that $3000 is abit steep considering all the perks she gets for free.

    Re: MJ fan59 – Jermaine is supposedly paying for his kids schooling and contrary to what people may believe, he is in his childrens life and at the end of the day being in your childs life means more then getting a fat $20,000 check every month.
    .
    I agree, The media are trying to portray him as an absent father who contributes nothing to his childrens upbringing but this is not the case.
    My childrens father lives apart from us and pays next to nothing for their upbringing but he has them every weekend, spending quality time with them which has resulted in him being a huge part of their lives… In my opinion, absolutly priceless.



  25. 25

    Re: MJ ROCKS!!! – Just because his mommy provide free food, home ect does not mean jermlazy should of gotten accustomed to it. He is the father he made those kids not his mother not michael, but him, so he should be the provider and responsible for them and not anyone else.



  26. 26

    Re: MJ fan59 – jermaine is this you???In every post about jerm you seem to get very defensive hmmmm.



  27. 27

    Re: fickdichpogmothoin! – where in my post did i say that Jermaine should not pay to support his children????
    my point is that the way people like yourself carry on you would think that Alejandra and her children are living in some flea infested damp room trying to survive on beans and rice all month!



  28. 28

    Re: gorgeous_chik7 – no, idiot was a harsh word, you're not an idiot.



  29. 29

    Re: fickdichpogmothoin! – Nice try at trying to be comical. In case you are serious.. No, I am not Jermaine nor am I Jackie, Tito, Marlon, Randy, Rebbie, LaToya, Janet, Joseph, Katherine or any of their children or grandchildren. And F.Y.I I rarely post a comment on Jermaine related post so your not as observant as you thought.



  30. 30

    Re: MJ ROCKS!!! – I do agree she is living a comfortable lifestyle, but Do you know how awkward she must feel to be living under the same roof with you ex mother in law while the ex husband goes off to get remarried and bring more children into this world. Alejandra is also to be blame for getting together with 2 brothers just because they are a jackson and for not taking control of the situation and become independent.

    [re=5528491]Re: MJ fan59[/You only make comments when is a jackson post.



  32. 32

    Good I'm glad, finally a country that appropriately cracks down on deadbeat dads.

    As far as I'm concerned they can keep him.

    .
    well she cant feel that awkward if she has to be evicted out of the house, she even turned down an offer of a new home! this tells me she is very comfy where she is.
    Having said that, you bring up a good point about her being independant, or not as the case maybe, when you have relied and/or lived with someone for a long time then yes i can imagine the thought of going alone may be daunting, so this could be why she is reluctant to move out. whatever her reasons im sure she will share with the world in her supposedly "tell all" book that she is reportedly working on.



  34. 34

    Know the law!!! He is a US citizen. He can come back in the country he will be detained by law officials when he returns.



  35. 35

    Re: fickdichpogmothoin! – Is there a problem with that? I comment on postings of people that I tend to favor. Unlike others, if I don't particularly care for someone, I'm not going to go out of my way to comment on them. I have made comments on postings on this site of my President (Obama), Vanessa Williams, and the Jacksons because I like them and have followed their careers. Your point? Other postings of certain topics or people I also have good/bad opinions of but I choose to keep those opinions to myself.



  36. 36

    you know i dont know why people give Jermaine such a hard time, he is such a geniune nice man and i get sick of people saying he is just after money all the time.
    In 2007 he came to the UK to take part in a reality tv show, basically he stayed in a house full of other celebs for 12 weeks with cameras on them 24 hours a day… and he made it right to the last week, in fact he came 2nd, why? because he was loved, he was geniune, he was caring, and no it wasnt an act, everyone who has ever been in that house says after a while they forget the cameras are on them.
    Since Michael passed away people seem to have turned on him and i dont understand why. the only reason that makes sense is because now Michael isnt here to be ridiculed and talked and gossiped about people and the media are turning their hatred towards Jermaine and the rest of the family.
    Jermaines child support issues are his buisness and to be honest whether Alejandra had children with one, two, three or four brothers is her buisness aswell, its not against the law to fall in love, regardless of who it is.
    people need to give this family a break, and be honest, if Jermaine was paying Alejandra $3000 every month people would still be commenting their same old crap "Katherine is supporting those kids" "Jermaine hasnt got the money so Katherine is paying it" blah blah blah… Just leave the Jacksons alone!

    Re: MJ fan59 – I am a Jackson fan for sure. I jope Jermaine can work something out. Happy New Year!

    Re: MJ ROCKS!!! – "you know i dont know why people give Jermaine such a hard time, he is such a geniune nice man"

    Jermaine is a greasy, freeloading piece of shit. I'm glad Michael the pedophile died, but I'm sorry he didn't take Jermaine with him.



  39. 39

    Re: MJ ROCKS!!! – I watched it!! It didn't air in America but I watched every episode on tubeyou lol Everyone on the show loved him because like you said he was a nice, genuine guy. I also watched when LaToya was on there too. ;)



  40. 40

    Re: Paris France – Happy New Year to you too!!! ;)



  41. 41

    Re: MJ fan59 – oh cool :D i didnt think it aired in america so assumed you didnt watch it but i forgot about good old tubeyou lol and yes Latoya! i forgot about her doing it aswell, she was also a nice kind caring person in it.
    i didnt see any of this "crazy" side that people seem to keep labeling anyone who is a jackson.

    Re: MJ ROCKS!!! – "i didnt see any of this "crazy" side that people seem to keep labeling anyone who is a jackson."

    Re: JuneGordon – "I'm glad Michael the pedophile died, but I'm sorry he didn't take Jermaine with him."

    Who is this person that you speak of? and why would they want to take Jermaine with them?? I see your still feeled with as much hate as ever… and to think I had high hopes of a New Year bringing more L.O.V.E to people like you. Darn those high hopes of mine.



  44. 44

    but he could afford a trip to africa which would have been thousands? classy. ugh



  45. 45

    While I don't understand why you would leave the country with a passport that is about to expire, I really don't understand how he was able to afford a trip to Africa but couldn't afford to pay child support for his children.



  46. 46

    Re: MJ fan59 – W/e jermaine.



  47. 47

    hes pretty stupid to go abroad when he knew his passport had expired. my sisters bag was stolen when we were away and it contained her passport, the embassy told her to have birth certificate and other official documents faxed to the hotel and she was able to return home

    Africa can keep him. He is such an sorry man. He replies on his mother for support and thinks he is suppose to be supported off of MJ's money. The mother who has the outstanding child support on him is no better than this sorry ass. She has kids by 2 jackson's, will not get out of Mrs. Jackson's home and uses her for money. Who the hell paid for his trip to Africa anyway????? I hope his mother is not footing the bill but dude has been on all fours to pay for his trip.



  50. 50

    Good! Pay your damn child support.

    Re: MJ fan59 – Hi. I don't think it's a free-for-all to throw stones just because it's The Jacksons. This is Perez Hilton. Waddayaexpect on here? It's the premiere claw sharpening site, and everyone knows it. People throw in, because The Jacksons have put their names in lights since the early sixties. Show biz has been very good to that family, and I realize that they've earned what they've made. They garnered the public interest, support, fandom and rewards (and downside, unfortunately) that goes with it, & they got it. Not everyone is going to like any one person or what they do 100% of the time. At some point big legends cross over into being Stars, and that's when all the rest of the shiz just happens.



  52. 52

    Re: @v@ – Hello. I honestly don't know what you were trying to tell me. I'm assuming your referring to me saying that people like throwing daggers at the Jackson family? If my assumptions are right then I do think the Jacksons get a bad rep. because of their last name. Not just by Perez and those that come on his site but I feel that as a whole due to having the last name Jackson, unwanted attention and unecessary things get said about them. And I do agree with you when saying that with fame you get the bad with the good but in my opinion over the years, the family as a whole get's the bad end of the stick alot.

    Re: MJ fan59 – I truly don't think the fat part of the curve think badly of the Jacksons. They're an accomplished musical family who've done well for themselves overall. This MJ thing was just tragic. As musicians they've always gotten mad props from me. This site is raw. A handful say what they're thinking, which can sting I'd bet, but could be useful in a reflective way as well.
