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.

DUH people. He didn't want his love stick in a woman, do you honestly believe he would have his sperm in a woman?? The only way MJ would ever have fathered a child, is if they found a way to let little boys concieve and carry them.

TMZ, You are being awful slanderous and disrespectful. Coping is hard for most of MJs fans. Please lighten up on the subject a little... there is other news also.

This is NOT news about Michaeal. The children are mixed race, black and white and his children have NO black in them. The 2 oldest do look like Debbie, so maybe that half of the story is false. But, ha ha wonder who the real FATHER IS?

I dont think the Michaeals Mom and Dad have that great of a track record raising kids - Michael? Latoya?

Also, very very CREEPY family photos Michael kept of his children!! Prince 1 always with his shirt OFF and his hair is obviously dyed a blonder blond that it naturally is, Prince has a very stange look ?? !@#$

Keep the kids away from Joe Jackson. He is illiterate, did you hear his press conference, "In countries all around the United States!"... ha ha

He DID NOT want children that resembled his father. He DID NOT want to pass on genetic immune disorders. He DID NOT want Black children.

SO.... JAMIE FOXX... MJ may have been BORN BLACK BUT... he DID NOT want to be one of you AND he DID NOT WANT HIS KIDS TO BE ONE OF YOU.
So shove you dumbass Jamie Foxx B*ullsh*it up your purple butt... MJ would have been abhorred by your comments you untalented LOSER... your career is definetly on the wind down, FOOL.

NOW THERE ARE GOING TO BE SO MANY DIFFERENT PEOPLE WANTING CUSTODY OF THEM NOT BECAUSE THEY WANT TO BE PARENTS, BUT BECAUSE THE KIDS COME ALONG WITH MILLIONS OF DOLLARS. SO SAD :(

It really doesn't matter who provided the genetic material, as long as all three children end up in safe, happy homes. I hope Michael Jackson didn't get touchy-feely with his own kids since they weren't "his" except legally.
