TMZ reported that Michael Jackson is not the biological father of any of his three children. They also claim that he never adopted any of them.
Reportedly, the children’s real father is Michael’s dermatologist, Arnold Klein, who employed Debbie Rowe, the woman who bore Prince Michael, 12, Paris, 11, and Prince Michael II, 7. Both parties supposedly signed an agreement that states they are never to reveal the truth surrounding the children’s biological parents.
They also stated that his youngest son was born to a surrogate mother who has never been identified. They claim she probably signed her rights away shortly after giving birth to the baby in San Diego County.
In the past, TMZ has not been considered a credible source, but they were the first to break the news of Michael Jackson’s death, so it appears that people are taking their claims more seriously.
This news comes smack in the middle of a custody battle between Michael’s parents, Joe and Katherine Jackson, and Debbie Rowe, for guardianship of the kids. According to KTLA, legal experts have stated that Michael would be presumed the father of the three children, but their assumption has not been confirmed by a judge just yet.
What do you think – should Michael’s parents get custody of the kids or should their mother, Debbie Rowe, have custody?
