Between the death of brother Michael and its subsequent family infighting, Jermaine Jackson is forgiven for wanting to find a little happiness. According to the AP, the singer filed a name change petition to allow him to change his last name to "Jacksun." 

"Phonetically, it changes nothing," said Jackson friend Steve Dennis, speaking on behalf of the singer. "It is something he has chosen to do, and it's fair to say that you cannot blame this one on the boogie, you've got to blame it on the sunshine." No word on what Jermaine's son Jermajesty thinks of the slightly bizarre name.

Jackson released his latest book You Are Not Alone: Michael, Through a Brother's Eyes, last year.
