Hello, Karma. Thanks for introducing yourself to Jermaine Jackson. Being the idiot that he is, Jermaine left the country to travel to Burkina Faso and did not realize his passport would expire while he was gone. I cannot tell you how much I wish this would happen to about ten celebrities.
Anyway, normally you or I would go to our embassy and they would provide us with a new passport. Easy peasy lemon squeasy. But, most of us do not owe $100K in child support. Jermaine does, though, so the US Embassy will not give him a passport unless he pays up.
Oh, how I hope he is stuck in Burkina Faso forever. That would be justice. Not that there is anything wrong with Burkina Faso. I hear Ouagadougou is lovely this time of year.
