According to a TMZ report, The L.A County Child Support Services Dept. has filed papers asking a judge to hold Jermaine in contempt, which could put him behind bars for 20 days.

The 58-year-old singer, member of the Jackson 5, belatedly paid $80,000 in child support back in March 2011… and anted up another $33,000 this past May.

Jermaine has only paid his ex-wife, Alejandra Jackson, a meager $85 out of the $12,000 he owes her for his sons, 13-year-old Jermajesty and 17-year-old Jaafar.

If the current case goes before a judge, it’s going to be difficult for Jermaine to explain the $160,000 Ferrari he purchased last month, when he has yet to pay child support.
