Michael Jackson: The Kids Were Not His Sons (or his Daughter)
Holy paternity shocker!
TMZ reports that, not only is Michael Jackson not the biological father of his three children, Michael Jr. (publicly referred to as "Prince"), Paris and Prince Michael II, but his ex-wife Debbie Rowe, who carried Michael Jr. and Paris to term, is not those boys' biological mother!
The Web site reveals that Rowe's eggs were not used in the in-vitro fertilizations and she served merely as a surrogate. Meanwhile, Jackson's sperm was not used in any of the three conceptions.
Prince Michael II was carried by a separate, anonymous surrogate, who was apparently never told the identity of the "receiving parent"—in this case, Jackson.
"Three days after Prince was born at Grossmont Hospital in San Diego County, Jackson's lawyer came to the hospital to pick the baby up and deliver him to Michael," says TMZ.
So if Jacko wasn't the true father of his kids, who is? In the case of Michael Jr. and daughter Prince, Us Magazine claims that the sperm donor was Jackson's Los Angeles-based dermatologist, Arnold Klein.
"[Klein] is the dad," a Jackson insider tells the mag. "He and Debbie signed an agreement saying they would never reveal the truth."
Wow; lots of twisted roots in that family tree.
