Jermaine now ‘Jacksun’

It’s now ‘Jacksun’

Jermaine Jackson has a new, brighter surname — Jacksun. A Los Angeles judge approved the change to the singer’s name Friday. The 58-year-old, now Jermaine Jacksun, who shared lead singing duties with his younger brother Michael in the Jackson 5, did not appear in court. He sought the name change for ‘‘artistic reasons’’ and says it has nothing to do with a recent rift in his family over the care of Michael Jackson’s children. (AP)
