Jackson Five Member Changes Last Name
This past Friday, Jermaine Jackson, the third oldest member of the Jackson 5, was granted approval by a Los Angeles judge for an official name change from Jackson to Jacksun.
The 58-year-old singer did not appear in court due to a tour in Europe with his brothers, Jackie, Marlon and Tito Jackson. However, the petition for a name change was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court in November 2012.
Jacksun, who unofficially took the name Mohammad Abdul Aziz upon his 1989 conversion to Islam, said in November that he was making the new change for “artistic reasons.” He also attests that the name change has nothing to do with a recent rift in the Jackson family over the care of the late Michael Jackson’s children.
“If Prince and P Diddy can do it, why can’t and shouldn’t Jermaine?” Jacksun’s attorney, Bret D. Lewis, said at the time the petition was filed.
