Jermaine Jackson and ex-wife Halima Rashid have had their marital drama, but this time it has gone too far for Jackson to handle.
The 64-year-old singer split from Halima Rashid — whom he married in 2004 — in June 2016, but their divorce case is still ongoing.
In November 2015, Rashid was arrested on a domestic violence charge amid claims she bit her husband’s leg. She was taken into police custody, charged with felony corporal injury and released on $50,000 bail. However, the case was dropped because prosecutors couldn’t determine who the aggressor in the fight was.
Now Jackson has claimed in new court documents that his estranged wife stole almost $94,000 in music royalties without his permission.
According to The Blast, who obtained the documents, he claims that since December 2017, Rashid has collected a total of $93,991.12 from his royalties, which he alleges he discovered late last year that she had diverted from him to her own account.
Jackson also accuses Rashid of transferring $250,000 from their community assets to a company without permission and believes she sold off a few of their cars, despite them both having rights to the vehicles.
In a letter written by his lawyer to hers, he calls her actions “criminal” and advises them to work out a resolution over the money and property being transferred or sold.
The Blast reports Jackson’s income is $13,952 but he has expenses totaling $10,934, which comes from an $8,000 mortgage, $1,500 in child support, and $1,000 on clothing.
He also claims to be $29,000 behind on child support payments to another woman.
In September, the “I Want You Back” hitmaker was ordered to pay temporary spousal support to Rashid, which was arranged before their divorce trial in December.
The payments equated to $2,500 a month and were dated back to June 1, 2018, but the judge said he can pay that $10K in five monthly installments.
