Who would have guessed when Jermaine Jackson took a trip to Burkina Faso in Africa that he would end up stuck there because of his failure to pay child support.
His passport expired and he can't get a new one until he does.
How does that work? In 2008, Jermaine's baby mama Alejandra Jackson (mom of Jafaar and Jermajesty), had a judge issue a support order for $3,000/month.
Jermaine has racked up $91,921 in back child support since.
Under California law, if someone owes more than $2,500 a month, the state informs the U.S. government, which often will red flag that person's passport.
Once the passport expires, it cannot be renewed until the person becomes current on their outstanding support obligations. Now here's where it gets crazy.
