MJ's Doc Arnold Klein

I'm Prince Jackson's Dad

... Maybe

breaking news

0117-arnie-klein-facebookDr. Arnie Klein -- Michael Jackson's famed dermatologist -- has just taken credit for fathering MJ's son Prince Jackson ... sort of.

Klein posted the cryptic picture on his Facebook profile yesterday, showing Prince side-by-side with an old photo of Klein when he was younger -- presumably to show the resemblance.

Under the photo, Klein wrote the caption, "hmmmmm" -- a wink at people who've been saying for years that Klein provided the sperm that fathered Prince and Paris.

You'll recall, Michael Jackson's ex-wife Debbie Rowe gave birth to Prince in 1997, and daughter Paris the year after. MJ's third child Blanket was born to an anonymous surrogate in 2002.

Debbie was Arnie's medical assistant back when Michael was a patient -- but she's never spoken publicly about the identity of the father.

Arnie has previously denied being the dad, telling Diane Sawyer, "To the best of my knowledge, I am not the father of these children."

So we gotta ask ...

He's a sperm donor, not a dad. It's very wrong and selfish of Klein to speculation about this in public. It's Prince's decision whether he wants to find out about this. Hopefully Klein isn't going to exploits this ($$$).

Arnie is such a conniving idiot

He makes up ish just to bring attention to himself. One minute is is saying one thing and the next minute his story does a 180.

Arnie, sorry but you are NOT THE FATHER.

Sperm donor, perhaps. Father? Dad? Absolutely not. Michael Jackson, DNA be damned, was. Why would people do this to Prince, Paris and Blanket, who adored their dad?

Who cares MJ was the father for all intents and purposes. People use surrogates and donor eggs and sperm every day. Doesn't make them less of a parent

Unless Klein is proven to have vitiligo as well, I won't believe he has any genetic link to Prince. Michael had vitiligo and Prince has it as well. Anyway, I don't understand why people are so obsessed about their paternity. I believe that they are Michael's children, but even if they don't share his DNA, shouldn't it be enough that these kids were raised by someone who loved and cared for them and raised them to be normal, level-headed individuals?

The way I see it, back in 2009 the Jacksons were only trying to groom MJ's kids to follow in his footsteps. You know, grooming them to follow in the Jackson tradition, not to exploit them. Michael adored those kids and he took them with him wherever he traveled. Michael had a rich life, and he stopped it for 10 years just to raise his kids. He earned being called DAD! He got married to have his kids, and his name figures as their father in their birth certificates; and in case the donor story is true, the law does not grant parental rights to sperm donors.
Michael was a man who gave so much! And he was such a good friend! And yet, most of his friends have used even his memory for their own profit!
I am not surprised about Klein, though. I knew he was not going to stay poor and hands down. And this was his last resort, but it's not the end of it. Klein is low, he won't stop at nothing.
And I can feel it in my skin: Rowe is next. You watch!
