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.

Katherine Jackson, the mother of the late Michael Jackson and the guardian of his three children, is about to clean house in more ways than one.

Renovations are being done and people are getting kicked out.

Everyone is moving out of the Jackson compound in Encino, Calif., while the house undergoes extensive renovations. Some won't be returning.

PERSONA NON GRATA: That's Alejandra Jackson (left) with ex Jermaine.

Katherine Jackson and company are in the process of packing boxes and will leave the family home in early December for several months during remodeling.

The reason this is significant is that after the "stun gun" incident in March, when Jaafar Jackson tried to taser Blanket, Katherine wanted the teenager out.

More specifically, she wanted Alejandra Jackson and her four kids - two with Jermaine and two with Randy Jackson (yup, it's weird) - to beat it for good.

As we previously reported, Michael Jackson's mother Katherine wants four of her grandchildren and their mom to move out so she can care for MJ's kids.

Prince, Paris and Blanket are under Katherine's guardianship, but her mansion currently houses Alejandra Jackson and her four children as well, and it's chaos.

The family housing feud began when the matriarch asked Alejandra and her four kids to move out, because they're just too much to handle for Katherine, 80.

She has two kids (Jermajesty and Jaafar) by Jermaine Jackson and two others (Donte and Randy Jr.) by Randy Jackson, who had a heart attack this week.

The deal is this: Katherine and the Michael Jackson estate have offered to let Alejandra and her brood move into a nearby condo owned by Michael Jackson.

Alejandra has lawyered up, however, and while all Katherine wants is a confidentiality agreement, Alejandra wants better digs and a big financial settlement.

Another day, another dose of Jackson family drama.

Katherine needs Alejandra and her kids to move so she can care for Michael's kids, and is reportedly ready to play hardball over it - condo or the highway.

Sources close to the family say Katherine cares deeply for the four grandchildren but is not about to be held hostage by someone who has no legal claim.

Jermaine Jackson does owe Alejandra back child support, but Katherine sees that as her son's problem, not hers. Plus, Katherine is living on an allowance.

Michael left 40 percent of his estate to Katherine, but paid out in increments, with the remainder going to Paris, Prince and Blanket when she passes away.

Therefore, she doesn't have access to a lump sum for a payoff and the executors of MJ's estate aren't going to cover Jermaine and Randy's obligations.

Basically, it could get ugly for Katherine. Like, worse than Joe Jackson blaming Michael's death on her ugly. But don't underestimate this strong woman.

As we reported in late April, Katherine Jackson wants four of her grandkids out of her house so that she can better care for Michael Jackson's children.

The problem is Alejandra Jackson, who's gearing up for a fight.

Paris and Prince Michael Jackson

She's been living at the family compound in Encino with kids Donte, Randy Jr., Jaafar and Jermajesty - two born to Randy and two to Jermaine Jackson.

Jaafar's bid to taser Blanket a few months ago sparked a DCFS probe and prompted Katherine to kick them out so she can care for Michael's offspring.

Katherine's bid to give Michael's kids a better environment is being challenged.

While downsizing the brood at home, Katherine Jackson is allowing Alejandra and her kids to move into a nearby condo owned by the Jackson family.

But Alejandra is far from pleased here.

When Katherine, who is out of town until June 10, comes back to L.A., Alejandra has to move. But she's lawyered up to negotiate a separation deal.

Alejandra wants some assurance that her family will be financially protected and is likely to challenge the move until she gets something on paper.

Also, Alejandra has gone after Jermaine in the past for failing to pay child support, and given this forced move, that battle has been reignited too.

Never a dull moment with the Jackson family, that's for sure.

Katherine Jackson is cutting down on the number of grandchildren living with her after the recent stun gun attack on Blanket. Probably a smart move.

Sources with direct knowledge of the situation say Katherine told Alejandra Genevieve Oaziaza to take her kids and move out of the estate next week.

Katherine is the late Michael Jackson's mother. Alejandra lives with her along with two of her children by Randy Jackson and two by Jermaine Jackson.

Supervising seven children is just too much for the 79-year-old grandmother, as evidenced by Jaafar Jackson trying to taser Blanket earlier this year.

FOR THE KIDS: Katherine made the right move.

The L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services came, took the gun and conducted interviewed. No charges were filed, or actions taken.

The family denies the stun gun incident was as bad as what was reported, but apparently whatever happened prompted the kids' change in location.

KJ is not heartless, though - Alejandra, Jermajesty, Donte, Randy Jr. and Jaafar Jackson are headed to a San Fernando Valley condo the estate owns.

As of next week, Prince, Paris and Blanket will have the run of the mansion, unobstructed and stun gun free. That's probably better for all involved.

Michael Jackson's mom Katherine insists the recent incident involving Jermaine Jackson's son Jaafar and the stun gun he tried to use on Blanket was an isolated event.

Other reports seem to indicate otherwise, however. From what we've gathered, the attempted attack on MJ's son was indicative of the utter chaos in the house.

Jaafar Jackson is no stranger to playing with guns, according to TMZ, which got its hands on a disturbing video which appears to have been shot a few months ago.

In the tape, Jaafar barges in on brother Jermajesty's room (yes, Jermaine has a son named freaking Jermajesty), with gun drawn, ordering him to get on the ground.

Jaafar proceeds to push Jermajesty to the ground, pretend to pistol-whip him, handcuff him and give the youngster an incomplete version of his Miranda rights.

Jaafar then tells his brother, "Don't move or I'll bust your head open."

He went on to cock the gun, point it to Jermajesty's head, and pull the trigger until it clicks. Disturbing. The tape has not been made available for obvious reasons.

He then drags his "dead" bro by the leg out of the room.

As for the Blanket stun gun incident, sources say Jaafar pointed came at two of Michael's kids - Blanket and Prince - though the family says they weren't in the room.

Much as the Jacksons try to downplay it, officials aren't biting.

The L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services are still reviewing the stun gun incident, but Jermaine Jackson should probably get his parenting act together.

Was the stun gun incident only the beginning?

Michael Jackson’s three children, known for being nice, well-adjusted and surprisingly normal despite their eccentric dad, are now being raised "in a chaotic environment devoid of discipline and parental supervision," according to reports.

Prince, Paris and Blanket have been living at the Jackson family home with Michael's mother, Katherine Jackson, as instructed in the late music icon's will.

More than a dozen family members live there as well. The big problem, not surprisingly, is that the other kids living in the house are totally out of control.

Well, only if you consider using a Ralph's rewards card to order a stun gun online and trying to taser Blanket out of control ... it's all how you look at it.

Is Katherine Jackson in over her head with Michael's kids?

A source blames MJ's brothers Randy and Jermaine Jackson, who are described as "the most ego-maniacal, self-centered people that have ever walked the earth.”

That's saying something on a planet that also features Kanye West.

Red flags were raised and a Department of Children and Family Services investigation launched following a recent incident with Blanket and Jermaine's son Jafaar.

Jafaar, 13, got his hands on a stun gun, allegedly for the purpose of zapping Michael's youngest son. Jermaine Jackson now finds himself facing harsh criticism.

"Any kid that grows up with that sense of privilege, you can just imagine the behavior that’s viewed as acceptable,” a source said. “It’s frankly disturbing.”

“This is not something that Michael’s children are used to. They were brought up in a loving home. They’re not used to experiencing this kind of violence.”

Should Michael’s children be placed with another guardian?

"It's not that simple. Michael was very careful about who and what his children were exposed to. They need someone who can be a constant for them."

Jermaine Jackson, brother of the late Michael Jackson, has had some interesting things happen in his life. Most recently, his teenage son tried to taser Blanket.

A messy divorce between Jermaine and his ex-wife likely set events in motion that resulted in the stun gun drama that made headlines in this slow news week.

The L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services came knockin' at the Jackson family home in L.A. after reports of the kids playing with a taser.

Here's the lowdown. Jermaine filed for divorce from Alejandra Jackson in 2004. The couple fought hard over child support. Pretty standard stuff at the time.

Despite their split, Jermaine pressured Alejandra to live with their two kids - Jaafar and Jermajesty (yes, Jer-effing-majesty) in the Jackson family home.

That way, he wouldn't have to pay her support.

DON'T TASE ME BRO: Jermaine could use a good zap.

However, Alejandra complained most of the support money she received actually came from Katherine Jackson, mother of Jermaine, Michael, Janet et al.

That support was often doled out in gift cards to Ralph's ... where Jaafar bought a credit card so he could buy a stun gun online to allegedly zap Blanket.

Resourceful little devil, no?

Alejandra Jackson has indeed been living at Katherine's with Jaafar and Jermajesty, plus Genevieve and Randall, her two children with ... Randy Jackson.

Yup, she was also married to another Jackson brother at one point.

Michael Jackson's three children, Prince, Paris and Blanket, have been living with Katherine, as per Michael Jackson's will, since he passed away last June.

She's got a lot on her plate, in other words, for a 79-year-old. As a result, the occasional taser may or may not slip through the cracks. Give her a break.
