Jermaine Jackson has been ordered to make temporary spousal support payments of $2,500 a month.
Jermaine Jackson has been ordered to pay his estranged wife spousal support.
The 63-year-old singer split from Halima Rashid in June 2016 and a court has now told him to make temporary payments of $2,500 a month until their divorce trial in December.
According to documents obtained by The Blast, Jermaine also has to pay retroactive support dating back to June 1 2018 but the judge said he can pay that $10,000 in five monthly installments.
Jermaine's monthly payments to Halima - who he married in August 2004 - will be handed over on the first and 15th of every month.
Speaking previously about their split, Halima said their lives would be better if they divorced.
She said: ''With a great amount of sorrow and regret, I announce that I am filing for divorce from Jermaine Jackson.
''We have enjoyed many good times during our marriage of nearly 12 years, but we have reached a point where our lives would be better and more productive if we are not married. I respect and care for Jermaine and his legendary family, and feel blessed to have been a part of the Jacksons.
''At this time, I ask that our friends, family members and the media respect the difficulty of this decision and allow us privacy as we move on with our lives. Thank you very much.''
In November 2015, Halima was arrested on a domestic violence charge amid claims she bit her husband's leg.
She was taken into police custody, charged with felony corporal injury and released on $50,000 bail.
However, the case was dropped because prosecutors couldn't determine who the aggressor in the fight was.
Following the incident, Jermaine insisted he still loved his wife and wanted to work things out.
He said: ''It's obvious, I've been with Halima for 11 years, I still love her, things happen. She is still my wife.''
Jermaine and Halima met in January 2004 at a Starbucks and were married eight months later.
