Jackson/Rowe Not the Biological Parents

6/30/2009 1:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We've learned Michael Jackson was not the biological father of any of his children. And Debbie Rowe is not the biological mother of the two kids she bore for Michael. All three children were conceived in vitro -- outside the womb.

Multiple sources deeply connected to the births tell us Michael was not the sperm donor for any of his kids. Debbie's eggs were not used. She was merely the surrogate, and paid well for her services in the births of Michael Jr. and Paris.

In the case of Prince Michael II (the youngest), we're told the surrogate was never told of the identity of the "receiving parent" -- Michael 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.

We do not know if Jackson chose the sperm or egg donors or if he even knew who they were.

Although Rowe is not the biological mother, it's not a slam dunk that she would lose a custody battle. This type of case has never been litigated in California courts. Since Rowe was married to Jackson when Michael Jr. and Paris were born, there's a presumption that she's the biological parent. That presumption can be rebutted by other evidence.

We know there are documents outlining the whole arrangement for the birth of all three kids. Nonetheless, it's still an open issue with the courts.

What do "mixed race kids look like" my grandfathers biggest battles in life was, oddly enough in his time, proving to people that he was black. My nephew has green eyes and long thin hair. Joe Jackson has green eyes! We all know that historically a lot of "black" Americans have very mixed heritage and most of us, white black or interfered, have children that look more like other family members, "grandparents."

I'm gonna focus on his MUSIC, focus on his CHaRiTIES and pray his kids don't read all of this. Whether he chooses white kids or Madonna chooses black kids ... that's their personal life. DAMN, GIVE ME THE MUSIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I PRAY LISA MARIE PRESLEY can help those kids out mentally since she went through the same thing when her daddy died.

Could MJ conceive a child??? If yes, maybe he chose not too due to his drug use all these years...Could have had a real deformed child if he did...Thankgod!

show me the $$    

The little girl looks just like Debbie Rowe, right down to the blue eyes. The boy was a cotton top (blondie) when he was little. It was obvious they weren't Jackson's biological kids (an African American producing blonde haired blue eyed children?) I think this is just a ploy of the Jackson family to muddy the waters if Rowe comes to court seeking custody.

TMZ better check your sources! Debbie denied all of this!
And Paris looks LIKE her, how about that?

And to all of you cruel nasty horrible people who say you're glad such an icon is dead, please let us know when this happens to a member of yor family so we can laugh at you and say we're so so glad! You are Evil. I've just realised that. But it's the good that die young unfortunately, not you.

Well, that explains a lot. I had thought Michael had gone crazy when he picked Debbie Rowe as a mother for his kids because, not to be mean or anything, but she's kinda homely. So now THAT part makes sense. Regardless, Michael was the kid's legal father, the only father they knew or had. Let's let him RIP and pray for the children. So sad to have lost their beloved father.

The kids belonged to Dr. Klein? Why would he participate in that?
