Jackson Ordered To Pay Up For Child Support
JERMAINE JACKSON has been ordered to pay up for child support for his two young sons, a court heard on Monday (22Oct07). The brother of pop legend Michael is currently going through a bitter divorce battle with estranged wife, Alejandra. Jackson - who has been accused of being an unfit parent - requested for 50/50 custody of his two kids, Jaffar and Jermajesty - whom he currently sees on alternating weekends. But the judge refused the plea and ordered both parents to work the custody issue at mediation court instead. According to TMZ.com, Jackson was also ordered to pay $11,511 (GBP5,755) per month in support payments, comprised of $7,762 (GBP3,881) of spousal support and $3,749 (GBP1,874) in child support, retroactive to July 1 (07). The Jacksons have two children, and Alejandra has a further two children with Jackson's brother, Randy.
