Once a member of the legendary Jackson 5, singer Jermaine Jackson has been creating a media buzz around his recent trip to Burkina Faso, Africa. The artist was detained due to his inability to renew his passport because he owed $91,921 in back child support to Alejandra Genevieve Oaziaza, the mother of his two sons.
Under California law, unpaid payments exceeding $2,500 per month are grounds for the individual’s passport to automatically be flagged. According to the law, Jackson’s passport could not be renewed until the excessive amount was paid in full.
Despite his recent passport issues in Africa, a source from RadarOnline.com says they spotted Jackson driving through Calabasas, California earlier this weekend.
“He was driving a white Range Rover and had a blonde in the front seat next to him,” the witness claimed. “He was laughing and looked like he didn’t have a care in the world.”
While the source claims to have seen Jackson, they were unable to give information about the status of his child support payments.
Before being stuck in Burkina Faso, Jackson asked a judge to reduce his payments to a mere $215 per month due to the fact that Oaziaza lives at the Jackson estate with Katherine.
