Poor Jacqueline Jackson. Her husband, civil rights leader Rev Jesse Jackson, has been putting her through it for years, but still she sticks around. That's love, right? Right? Anyhee, Rev Jesse, who's cheated on Jackie with several different women (and maybe men) during their 50-year marriage and is facing a sexual harassment lawsuit filed by a gay man, has another date with a judge. His baby mama, Karin Stanford -- with whom he has a 12-year-old daughter named Ashley -- says she's owed $11,694.50 in unpaid child support. According to the National Enquirer, Rev Jesse didn't pay a cent from December 2010 to August 2011. He was initially ordered to pay $4,000 in child support but at one point the payments were lowered to $400 per month, but he didn't pay that either. While Karin (pictured, left) admits since she put in on blast in 2001, Rev Jesse has stepped up as a father and does spend time with his daughter, but she says that's not enough. A friend tells the tabloid: "Karin has tried so many times to work with Jesse on their financial agreement. But he was only paying when he felt like it, so she's taking him to court....Karin will not allow her daughter to be shortchanged financially." The ticked off baby mama also claims Rev Jesse's five kids -- which he has with Jacqueline -- have shunned Ashley. Also, Rev Jesse has not set up a college fund for Ashley -- nor has he added her name to his life insurance policy. Wait, first he has to get a life insurance policy for himself. A mess!
