Jermaine Jackson's ex-wife has accused him of falling behind on his child support payments again.

Michael Jackson's brother settled a long-running dispute with his former partner Alejandra in 2011 after he allegedly failed to hand over $80,000 (£50,000) in payments for the former couple's two sons, Jermajesty and Jaffar.

However, Alejandra claims the Jackson 5 star has fallen behind again and now owes her more than $30,000 (£18,750) dating from April, 2012 until April, 2013.

She has filed a complaint and officials at Los Angeles' Child Support Services Department have asked a judge to hold Jackson in contempt of court, according to

The couple married in 1995 and Jermaine filed for divorce in 2004.
