Jermaine Jackson says stun gun was for him

jermaine_jacksonJermaine Jackson has admitted his teenage son purchased a “little thing” on the internet, saying it was meant as a gift for him. It has been claimed 13-year-old Jaafar purchased a stun gun and had to be stopped from using the device on Blanket. While Jermaine admits Jaafar did buy something online, he stopped short of calling the item a stun gun and played down claims it was ever fired at the family’s home in Encino. “No, that was not true, there was no accident. That was my son, he was getting this little thing for me and somehow someone alerted the press and it all got out of hand,” Jermaine said in an interview with Dutch television’s rt4. “There was no encounter with Blanket or anything, it was just a lot of talk but my son feels very, very bad because he had told me he was going to get me something online and somehow it just got out of hand.”

Michael Jackson’s three children Prince Michael, Paris and Blanket have been cared for by his mother Katherine since his death. They live at the Encino house along with Jaafar and his siblings Jermajesty, Genevieve and Randall, and their mother, and another young person the family looks after. Katherine’s attorney Adam Streisand also denies the claims, insisting that although Michael’s kids were in the room when Jaafar unwrapped the parcel it was immediately confiscated by security guards. Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services officers visited the Jackson family home in Encino on Monday night at approximately 10:30 p.m. to confiscate the gun and have spent hours interviewing staff about the incident. They are reportedly trying to control the access the children have to the internet to avoid similar things happening in the future. It’s believed they could be planning a third trip to gain more information about the incident.

    Yeah right, Christmas is over! Who the heck goes on the internet and buys their daddy a stun gun for a gift? Stop covering up for the kid, the public is not stupid. So anyways, how the heck are they going to explain stun gun #2 that they earlier mentioned? A gift for granny?

    Wonder how much of a “little thing” it would have been if Blanket had of gotten zapped? These people need to wake up, there are a LOT of young children in that house, all under the care of an old lady. Thank goodness security is in the house as well.
    On a side note, “Jermajesty”??? Seriously? So 3 of his kids have odd names, (in MY opinion people!) how did they come up with 3 unusual names, and tag one with “Randall”?

    I like how no one has noticed that to buy anything online you have to have a credit card. Some adult would have had to purchased it. I don’t know any 13 year old kids with their own credit card. So if that is the case the item in question would be address to the adult and not 13-year-old Jaafar. The question again is how did the Jaafar get his hands on it???

    It’s probably one of those 2nd credit cards you can get for someone else through your own card. He’s obviously not responsible enough to be using it. Wonder what else he’s been buying? Maybe a little porn here and there? Guns? Knives?

    Another thing I’m thinking of, is how the heck did he get delivered a package containing a stun gun (1 or more), without it being all checked out by security?

    How in the world can you even sell a stun gun on the computer…is that legal anywhere in North America?

    Jaafar probably used his mom or dad’s credit card for the purchase unless they allow him to have his own card. Children truly need to be monitored on the internet. To answer tributegirl’s question on the kids names…Randall is named after his father Randall(Randy)Jackson so he’s a JR….Genevieve and Randall are Alejandra’s children by Randy Jackson….and Jermajesty and Jaafar are Alejandra’s children by Randy’s brother Jermaine Jackson. So that’s where the normal name come from.
