Jermaine Jackson faces jail after falling $30,000 behind in child support


Jermaine Jackson could be the next celebrity arrested and jailed. According to reports, Jackson’s ex-wife, Alejandra Jackson, went to authorities because Jackson fell behind in his child support payments for his two teenage sons, Jermajesty and Jaafar.

The courts ordered Jackson to pay $36,000 per year in support for his sons, but Alejandra claims that Jackson owes $30,000. As a result Jackson faces 12 counts of contempt and could serve 60 days in jail.

This isn’t the first time Jackson has dealt with child support issues. He owed $90,000 in 2011, before settling for $80,000 with Alejandra.
