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.

No really? Anyone who knows anything about bi-racial kids knows those kids are not bi-racial. Those kids are 100% WHITE!

Go threw photos of the kids threw the years, none of them look like Micheal and to be honest none of them look like Debbie either

A female friend of mine from Egypt knows Quincy Jones VERY well. He told her that Rowe is NOT the biological mother, only the surrogate. TMZ probably knows this female friend I'm speaking of.

I don't think Paris and Prince Michael even resemble each other but that doesn't mean anything; often sibblings don't look alike.
I personally agree that Michael loved the kids like any other good father loves their children. They were his from his heart if nothing else.

I know TMZ has a good record of breaking news .However, I strongly feel this one about MJ's kids are really wrong . At first I thought maybe their not his kids .Well looking at them older now , they both look like MJ & Row .Paris has the off white olive tone with kinky hair .The two boys have MJ's features in their eye's and nose. The only real way anyone will know is a DNA test which I hope they have to put this matter to rest .

Paris looks like Madonna's natural daughter. Could Madonna have been involved?

Does it really matter? He loved the kids and they loved him so much too. Paris had already told everyone about the love between them and that's important. Enough is enough. There's no point guessing while it would only hurt the kids. Would you kindly give MJ and his kids some peace?

just me    

well i have to say that i do not believe people know what they are talking about considering paris does look like debbie and the boys have some of michaels looks,blanket really looks like michael so just maybe the ones who think they know it all should get just a little more facts before opening your dark holes.sorry ,i l like michael jackson and he is gone and cant defend himself so us fans have to.

To #62 - It wasn't about the Jackson sibblings having surgery to erase their 'ethnic' looks. It has always been about erasing Joe's ugly features from their faces. Their are many beautiful black ethnic featured people in this world, but looking like Joe Jackson does not cut it. Iam african american, and if I looked like that guy, I'd find the money to change my face too.

Since this report, Debbie Rowe has said she is willing to take a DNA test to prove that she is the biological mother of the two older children. That's quite a challenge to whomever TMZ used as sources for this story. Would like to see a follow-up on this.

It does not matter if Debbie Rowe was not the biological mother, she gave birth to those two children. Without her, there would be no children. The ego and sperm donors have no claim to the children. Why would Michael need to marry her if she was just a surrogate? It is highly unlikely that she isn't the biological mother. He could have used a surrogate mother as he used for Blanket. He never intended for Rowe to play a role in their upbringing or to ever have a woman in the house who the children called "mom." He was jealous of the affection the kids had for their Nanny and fired her without regard to his children's feeling. He knew they were close to Grace, being the only woman in the house who the children probably looked at as a mother figure. Children trive in a family unit where there is a mother and a father figure.

Black father - black/biracial child. That's a rule.

Those are the whitest black kids the world has ever known. It's because their father, whover he was, is white.
