Pop singer Jermaine Jackson changes surname to Jacksun

  • Pop singer Jermaine Jackson officially changed his name to Jermaine Jacksun for "artistic reasons," according to Los Angeles court officials.

    The Jackson 5 member and older brother of pop stars Michael and Janet Jackson filed a petition to change his name in Los Angeles Superior Court in November last year.

    The change became official on Wednesday after a hearing, according to a court spokeswoman.

    The 58-year-old unofficially adopted the name Mohammad Abdul Aziz after converting to Islam in 1989.
