Jermaine Jackson - Jermaine Jackson becomes Jermaine Jacksun

Jermaine Jackson has changed his name.

The 58-year-old singer submitted paperwork at the Los Angeles County Superior Court in November to change his last name to Jacksun for ''artistic reasons'' and it has finally been approved, according to TMZ.

Jermaine had to publicly announce his name change several times in either a magazine or newspaper over the period of a few months before it became official.

Last year, Jermaine released an album of classic jazz songs 'I Wish You Love' and is currently performing in Europe as part of The Jacksons' Unity Tour with his brothers Jackie, Marlon and Tito.

The band have been performing all of their biggest hits including 'ABC', 'I Want You Back' and 'I'll Be There' as part of the remembrance tour for their late younger brother Michael, who died in 2009.

The siblings recently claimed Michael was persecuted like Jesus.

They think the late King of Pop's life mirrored the Biblical figure's own existence in many ways because of the effect he had on people and the way his life was destroyed.

Asked if Michael was a pop messiah, Jackie said: ''I wouldn't say that. No one's bigger than God or Jesus. But everywhere Michael went, every country, when he left the airport people would line up on the freeway just to get a glimpse of him.''

Jermaine added: ''God blessed him because he knew what Michael was going to do with his talent. He was a voice for children who were starving, and he brought the world sing like 'We Are The World', 'Heal The World' and 'Man In The Mirror'. Everything he did was for the betterment of mankind.

''You mentioned Jesus. Look what he did when he walked the earth. He did all those miracles and they still found a way to nail him up on that cross.''

Well said YANNI54! Jermaine should be ashamed of himself, just another way for him to get attention. No matter how you spell it Jermaine, you ARE still a Jackson by blood, how dare you insults your mother and father like this, shame on you!!

OK these are my questions, does this mean that since he is no longer a Jackson that he won't be singing the JACKSONS BROTHERS UNITY TOUR? If he no longer have the same last name as his family does that take away any legitimacy that he could claim as a Jackson family member if there is ever court actions? One last question, is this why he detached himself from the claims that the other family member were trying to fight for about MJ's will?
