Jermaine Jackson may be looking at a few months in jail if he doesn’t get caught up on child support payments soon. According to TMZ, the singer has not paid Alejandra Oaziaza support for Jermajesty and Jaafar in four months and is now facing the possibility of being held in contempt.
The media source reports,
“Jermaine is falling farther and farther behind …. he’s required to pay baby mama Alejandra Jackson $3K a month for 13-year-old Jermajesty and 17-year-old Jaafar … but the mailbox has been empty for months.
Court docs obtained by TMZ show … of the $12K that he owes in back payments … he’s only coughed up a measly 85 bucks.
The L.A. County Child Support Services Dept. has filed papers asking a judge to hold Jermaine in contempt … which could put him behind bars for 20 days.”
Jermaine previously fell behind in child support but managed to catch up with two lump sum payments of $80,000 in 2011 and $33,000 earlier this year. The musician has eight kids in all.
