It seems a name-change was in order, though we’re not quite sure why. In a somewhat baffling move, Jermaine Jackson has changed his legendary last name to “Jacksun,” according to court documents obtained by E! News.
On Friday, a court commissioner signed on the dotted line, approving the 58-year-old singer’s petition. He is, now, officially Jermaine LaJuane Jacksun.
Jermaine, the fourth-oldest of Joe and Katherine Jackson’s children, has not commented since making the name change legal. However, a spokesperson for Jermaine told E! News, the “decision to change one letter of his last name was ‘a personal choice’ and “not a big deal.”
Jermaine’s official announcement comes on the heels of Cirque du Soleil revealing its new Michael Jackson-inspired show, called “Michael Jackson ONE.” Preview performances begin on May 23 at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.
