Jermaine Jackson seeks sole custody of children
Jermaine Jackson has sought sole custody of his two sons after Los Angeles police were notified that the children were being beaten.

The brother of Michael and Janet, who is working on a TV pilot, was given custody of the children by police after they cops were informed of the abuse by teachers at the boys’ school.

Jackson’s son Jermajesty told a teacher that his mother Alejandra, had been “slapping him repeatedly across the face”, reports radaronline.com .

Jackson is seeking sole custody and will go to court next week. His lawyer says he will allow visitation with the kids’ mother, but will request that it is supervised.

Alejandra currently lives at the Jackson family compound in Encino, CA.
