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.

Michael Jackson hated his very own self...he felt he was a freak, in talent and life, so he full-filled that expectation. He turned himself into the freak that he felt on the inside.

His talent turned into a curse. And the curse took his life.

its so sad that MJ didn't live in peace nor will he die in peace. This world is so cruel and harsh! I feel for his children & family. MJ helped so many people, he was talented, a great person...who cares about his past mistakes? At this point race is not an issue...The world is an issue! We have soldiers being killed in IRAQ! yet we're worried about one man? LETS FOCUS ON BRINGING OUR FELLOW AMERICANS HOME! Those who judge will be judged...Those who lack forgiveness...will not be forgiven. May God watch...I feel for the world come judgement day. Sad story!

TMZ better check your sources! Debbie herself denied these reports earlier. And how come Paris looks exactly like Debbie? And Prince and Blanket have some of MJ's characteristics? Are all these coincidences? Please...

The big thing is if they where or not born from Mike's seed they are still his children plain and simple!!!! Why is anyone even posting that they are happy from false information.. If you remember yesterday TMZ did post some really untrue and wrong information from a london newspaper called the Sun does anyone remember that? So ummm yea I think a few of you people have fallen for that banana in the tail pipe GNR

Enough of this freak - there are more important things to talk about. How about Obama using MJ's death to cover up his cap and trade bill that he pushed thru while all you freak groupies were mudding up the media.....good job jerks. We all know that MJ was not the biological dad - only a moron would think so. He could not have bleached out his sperm like he did is face to have white kids. JEEZ!

Somehow, this is not very shocking. What is shocking is that they did the whole married ruse to try and fool the world into thinking that these were their biological kids. At least it makes more sense as to why DR could walk away. That was most likely always the plan. She would incubate the testtube babies and then walk off with her fee, marrying him so the world would think he could function normally as a husband and sexual partner.

As to those that think the kids look like either one of them and therefore have to be their biological kid, well pets often look like their owners too. Thats what these kids were...pets enginered by a wacko that decided he wanted children to dangle off balconies and hide under masks from the rest of the world, bringing them out for his amusement.

I have no doubt that Michael isn`t the biological father but i`m sure Debbie is the biological mother. For all we know Michael may have been sterile or he just wanted white babies. The chance of 3 bi-racial babies looking totally white are nil. Anyway it doesn`t matter legally whose sperm it was under the law Michael is presumed to be the father of any child born in a marriage plus he raised them, so the biology really doesn`t matter.
