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.

In my opinion, I think Michael didn't use his own sperm because of his physical ailments. Lupus, which has now be confirmed to be one of his diseases, often runs in families, and he probably didn't want to take the chance of passing on his hell onto his children.

People are so darn STUPID! U have to be pretty retarded not to be able to tell these kids are MIXED! They all have tans, the boys look alike even though they have different mothers???? The boys look just like Michael, both of them. And as for Paris, she looks more like her mother I will admit but so what, it happens. Her blue eyes are confusing everyone, why? Her mother has blue eyes, and Joe Jackson has light eyes??? Still confused???? These kids are Michaels, I'm sorry they look more white than they do black.......but that just sometimes happens with mixed children. You never know what they'll turn out to look like! You people should do a little more research on mixed raced children, this coming from someone who is very mixed and comes from a family of mixed people! LOL, stupid people!

Where does it say children of bi-racial backgrounds have to look one way or the other? Ridiculous! Those kids are M.J's whether you like it or not. And to those who take pleasure in bashing a dead man I say, your day will soon come.

That is BS and everyone knows it...The kids may not be biologically Michaels, but he is their father...end of story...If you dont think its possible for a black man to have light skinned/white children, look at this pic of Tiger Woods and his new baby.I dont seen anyone denying that he is the father, and that baby is WHITE!

Paris Michael looks EXACTLY like Debbie Rowe, so get your facts straight...TMZ, you should know better! You arent the National Enquirer now are you?

Micheal was smart in that there is almost zero chance of ever knowing who the parents are to those kids and thus he protects the Jackson Family Trust. That is what it is about here folks, MONEY.

So Michael leaves the world a puzzle, unless we solve the mystery we the world will never know who there rightful parents are anymore than the actual rightful parents, the children actual.

Smart thinking Michael! But doesn't it still hurt the children ? I suppose as long as they are cared and loved for everything will work itself out.

i think the youngest one may be his, but none look like debbie rowe at all, even after her make over, it is quite possible that Micheal had designer babies made for the first two, whites have had black looking babies and vise versa before including twins with one white and one black looking since the beginning of time.
One thing is for sure, Mike was a stay at home dad, and appears to have been a very good one, with the exceptions of his late night sleep over with little boys, giving wine to little boys, both which he believe was okay and everybody should do it, crazy spending$$$, and his many books and pictures of naked little boys.
I wonder if the real mothers and Dads will find out and seek custody and MJ 2 billion dollar music catalog which will be worth more every year.

He's already died. What more you guys want from him? Haven't you taken enough from him when he was alive?

I agree with people that see Michael's eyes and expression in Prince II.. I think they are his biological kids!!!

How stupid can the tabloids be?
Joe Jackson is part white part indian and he has greenish-blue eyes.
So, what's the problem if Paris has blue eyes? It's a Genetic thing.
They are MJ's children.

Have you guys seen the recent Hawaii photo of the older boy with a huge vitiligo patch in his right arm pit?? I mean, there CAN be an inheritance factor in vitiligo. Can it just be a coicidence? What are the chances of Michael adopting a child who develops vitiliog when he has it himself?? Uh, maybe less than 1%?

You guys are idiots, you actually believe the eldest two are his? He didn't want his kids to be drug addicts like himself, but Blanket is his. He looks like him from when he was younger. And Blanket does seem like a drug baby.

I would like to believe what this article is saying but, nowhere do I see any credible sources besides 'Multiple sources deeply connected to the births' for all I know that could be the hobo down the street or a voice in your head. Also, who wrote this? The TMZ team? It took a group of people to not give any facts. Great job guys.
