Jermaine Jackson

When it comes to the Jacksons, we can totally understand if one or two of them wanted to change their name. Paris? Yep. Prince/Blanket? You betcha ya. But what does Jermaine Jackson have to complain about?

Apparently Michael Jackson's older brother has petitioned —and won — the right to legally change his last name. No more Jackson, hello Jacksun

The petition — which was filed back in November by the 58-year-old — was granted by a Los Angeles judge on Friday. The singer did not attend the hearing as he is currently in Europe performing with his brothers. No word on why the need for a new surname. Brighter?
