Jermaine Jackson to change name, slightly

And Finally Legal

Jermaine Jackson

Jermaine Jackson wants to change his surname, according to TMZ, but only slightly, and not to distance himself from his crazy, crazy siblings.

According to papers filed with the LA County Superior Court, the one-time Jackson Five frontman wants to alter his legal last name to Jacksun, apparently for “artistic reasons”.

The change needs to be approved by a judge to be recognised in law, and under LA rules the proposed alteration will have to be announced publicly a few times before approval can be given.
