Jermaine Jackson’s ex-wife is suing the former singer for thousands of dollars in back child support.
TMZ.com reports that Alejandra Jackson filed papers with Los Angeles County Superior Court, claiming that Jermaine is a deadbeat dad. Court papers state that he owes $35,000 in payments for their kids, Jermajesty and Jaffar.
Alejandra charges that the unpaid child support has made things so tight for her that Katherine Jackson has had to give her "gift cards to Ralph’s in varying months so that I can pick up food for our children, usually between $300 and $400."
And, to top it off, Alejandra alleges that Jermaine lied when he said he only earned $35,000 last year. As proof, she states that he’s still living the “luxury lifestyle” in the “estate home” he’d been occupying for a while.
Alejandra and Jermaine are set for another round in their child support battle, but there’s no word on a court date just yet.
