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.

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.

It is up to the courts. Ultimately, the family may not have a leg to stand on. It's a shame innocent kids have to be caught up in this. It is a shame MJ's life turned into such a tragedy

Wow. I am disgusted. First, I don't believe that at all. Just because the kids are white doesn't mean they aren't his. Look at LaToya. She is really light. And having a white mother they could have gotten that gene. Even if they are not biologically linked to him, does it really matter? They are his children and he is their daddy. TMZ, I am appalled. Don't forget that his children are not 1 or 2 years old. They can read this junk and they hear about it. Why is nobody thinking of the kids? Bashing their father the way the media is and saying they aren't his kids. You should be ashamed. I have been picking thru stories believing the ones that are fact and ignoring those that aren't. But just posting crap like this just to be the first...to say that you have an "exclusive" is disgusting. I thought this site was different that Perez Hilton and all that other junk but I guess I was wrong.

OK, TMZ, you've gone too far. Whatever the scientific truth is regarding the biological heritage of these children, this should have been kept private. These are children, for God's sake--children who have just lost the only parent they've ever known.. Write what you want about Jackson and Rowe, they're adults who have each in some way chosen a form of life in the public eye. Tthese kids didn't. This post is not OK

AlLL MIXED RACE CHILDREN HAVE CERTAIN BLACK FEATURES! BARRACK OBAMA IS MIXED BLACK AND WHITE! HALLE BERRY IS MIXED BLACK AND WHITE. TIGER WOODS IS MIXED BLACK AND WHITE. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO BLACK IN THOSE 3 KIDS, BUT THEY ARE NOW GOING TO BE RAISED IN AN ALL BLACK ENVIROMENT. IT WILL BE A CULTURAL SHOCK, BECAUSE YOU CAN BE SURE, THERE WAS NOTHING BLACK ABOUT LIVING WITH THEIR DAD MICHAEL IN HIS HOUSEHOLD, THE BLACK RACE WAS PROBABLY NEVER EVER MENTIONED, YET THEY ARE NOW GOING INTO AN ALL BLACK WORLD TO LIVE WITH SCARY JOE AND LATOYA AND JERMAINE, AND TITO AND JANET OHHH BOOYYYY, CANT WAIT TILL THE KIDS ARE OLD ENOUGH TO GO ON OPRAH AND TELL THEIR SIDEE OF THE STORY, I WOULD LOVE TO KNOW IF THEY ARE SMART, OR DUMB.
BUT HONESTLY, I WISH THEM ALL THE BEST, AND I KNOW THEY ARE VERY MUCH LOVED BY THE FAMILY!
