Jermaine Jackson Petitions to Change Last Name to ‘Jacksun’

Why would Jermaine Jackson ever want to get rid of his famous surname? He wouldn’t. Michael Jackson’s older brother filed a name change petition on Tuesday in Los Angeles, E! News confirms, but he’s not exactly changing his last name — just giving the spelling a little spin.

Say hello to Jermaine Jacksun.

A spokesperson for Jermaine confirms that he has filed a name change petition for artistic reasons, and explains that “his actual name has not changed. It’s just the spelling, one letter. It is a personal choice of Jermaine’s and it’s not a big deal.”
