Is Jermaine Jackson a Deadbeat Dad Again?Published by on Monday, April 29, 2013 at 8:42 am.
Since Michael Jackson’s death, the Jackson family has continued to make headlines for mostly personal reasons. TMZ is reporting that Jermaine has allegedly fallen behind in his child support payments to his and Randy Jackson’s baby mama, Alejandra Jackson, and the past due amount totals over $30,000 dollars.
Because of the debt, Los Angeles Child Support Services Department has asked a judge to hold Jermaine in contempt for failing to meet his child support financial obligations from April 2012 thru April 2013. The CSSD ordered Jermaine to pay $3,000 a month in child support payments for teenage sons Jermajesty and Jaafar, but so far the founding Jackson Five member has not made any monthly payments in full.
To date, Jermaine has only coughed up a total of $5,621 for the year and still owes $30,378. The elder Jackson brother now faces 60 days in jail if he does not pay the total fee by August 2013. The CSSD says Jermaine is guilty of 12 counts of contempt, for each month. There will be a hearing scheduled to address the issue if he does not meet the deadline.
Alejandra and Jermaine previously tousled over back child support payments in 2011. Jermaine then owed $90,000, but settled with his ex for $80,000 instead. If Jermaine could get those types of funds together the last time, he should have no problem getting the cash together this time around. Maybe he can cop a loan from La Toya?
