Washington: MJ’s older brother Jermaine Jackson filed a new child support papers in LA County Superior Court grousing that he`s expected to pay 3,000 dollars a month in child support for sons Jaafar and Jermajesty.

In fact, according to new legal docs, MJ`s bro can barely make ends meet.

His average monthly income for the last year has been under 1,100dollars.

Jermaine is asking the judge to slash support payment to 215dollars a month.

According to the docs, Jermaine made a onetime appearance on ‘Big Brother’ back in 2007, raking in a handsome 450,000dollars for his troubles but since then, Jermaine claims his business has floundered.
