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.

Debbie Rowe has to be the biological mother of the two oldest children, they have her eyes and their chins are hers, same cheekbones, etc. I doubt Michael is the biological father but if genetic testing proved Debbie Rowe isn't the mother I would be astounded. TMZ i would like to view your proof for making the allegations Debbie isn't the biological mother. If the biological trait chart for determining features is used there is a possibility Michael is the father, but Debbie is the mother without a doubt.

Those kids look biracial. They are not 100% white. Prince Michael has MJ eyes and Paris has Debbie Rowe's facial features. For all those people who aren't interested in MJ, you should stop coming to these sites to complain. We are not interested in your comments. The world sufferd a huge loss. MJ is an icon and a beloved figure. He will go down as one the greatest entertainers of all time. May your rest in peace Michael.
