Michael Jackson’s older brother Jermaine has a new, brighter outlook on life.

Thr 58-year-old Jermaine Jackson is now Jermaine Jacksun, with a “u.”

Really. A Los Angeles judge approved the official change on Friday.

The Jermaine Jackson name change, which he filed the paperwork for late last year, was sought solely for “artistic reasons,” according to the vocalist.

He insists it has nothing to do with the massive rift in his family over the care of MJ’s children last summer, which he later withdrew from to a degree.

His attorney, Bret D. Lewis says the newly renamed Jermaine Jacksun is in Europe performing with his brothers, but hears it’s “a sunny day in California.”

Well played, Mr. Jacksun.
