It seems to have come to him in a moment of illumination. For Jermaine Jackson has lodged legal papers in a bid to change the spelling of his last name to ‘Jacksun.’

The bizarre move has purportedly been made for ‘artistic reasons,’ and if it is successful then his passport, bank cards and other documents will boast the new moniker.

The 57-year-old brother of the late Prince of Pop Michael filed his petition at the Los Angeles County Superior Court on Monday, according to TMZ.

A hearing has been scheduled to determine the outcome of his request.

If it is approved the singer will have to publicly announce his name change several times in either a magazine or newspaper over the next few months before it becomes official.

Jermaine became famous as a member of The Jackson 5 in 1968, before splitting the band to strike out on his own in 1975.

He recently released his new album of classic jazz songs I Wish You Love and is currently performing in Europe as part of The Jackson’s Unity Tour with his brothers Jackie, Marlon and Tito.
