JERMAINE JACKSON has been granted permission to officially change the spelling of his famous last name.
Michael Jackson's older brother filed papers in Los Angeles Superior Court in November (12), requesting to legally alter his surname to Jacksun for "artistic reasons".
A decision was postponed until this year (13) and on Friday (22Feb13), a judge approved his petition, according to TMZ.com.
The 58 year old was not present for the hearing as he is currently on tour in Europe with his brothers as The Jacksons.
