Jermaine Jackson changes last name to Jacksun

Washington, Feb 23 (ANI): Jermaine Jackson has changed his surname to 'Jacksun'.

A Los Angeles judge approved the change to the 58-year-old singer's name on Friday, the Huffington Post reported.

Jermaine, who shared lead singing duties with his younger brother Michael in the Jackson 5, reportedly wanted the name change for "artistic reasons".

The singer said that it has nothing to do with a recent dispute in his family over the care of Michael's kids and family matriarch Katherine Jackson.

Jacksun's attorney Bret D. Lewis said that the American singer is in Europe performing with his brothers and is not sure whether Jacksun will elaborate on the creative reasons for the change. (ANI)
