It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the purchase of that ultra-expensive Ferrari that Jermaine Jackson bought last month is likely to come back to bite him in the butt.
According to a TMZ report, Jermaine is falling farther and farther behind in his child support payments. He’s on file as paying Alejandra Jackson $3K a month for 13-year-old Jermajesty and 17-year-old Jaafa, however, he hasn’t made a payment in months.
Court docs obtained by TMZ show that of the $12K that he owes in back payments, he’s only coughed up a measly 85 bucks.
The L.A. County Child Support Services Dept. has filed papers asking a judge to hold Jermaine in contempt which could put him behind bars for 20 days.
This isn’t the first time Jermaine has slacked off. He belatedly paid $80,000 back in March 2011 and gave up another $33K in back support this past May. He’s also had his wages garnished.
Remember what we said about the car? If the current case goes before a judge, Jermaine is gonna have a hard time explaining how he paid $160K for a Ferrari last month and can’t pay child support.
