According to Gossipdaily.com,
Here we go! Is there a year where a Jackson member doesn’t break headlines? Jermaine is finishing off 2012 with a bang. Jermaine is changing his famous last name to something more artistic: Jacksun. He is legally changing his name to a name that will bring more light to his artistic self. Jermaine’s friend tries to defends him by saying “Phonetically, it changes nothing”. Jackson’s hearing is scheduled for February 2013. Until then, I honestly don’t know what to say but RIP Michael.
