Jermaine Jackson comes clean on 'Jacksun' name tweak
PARIS (AFP) - Michael Jackson's older brother Jermaine explained on Monday he had registered the name "Jacksun" as an official pseudonym because he loves the sun - but that his legal name remained unchanged.
"I didn't change my name," Jackson told a press conference in Paris when asked about reports he petitioned a US court last week to let him tweak the spelling of his famous surname to "Jermaine Jacksun".
"I just changed one letter because I love the sun. The sound is the same," he explained, based on a French translation of his comments.
"It is still 'Jackson', it is just J-a-c-k-s-u-n, but that's for me personally", he added in English, saying he had had the pseudonym registered with a lawyer.
