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 ...

I've always thought he was the father. That oldest kid looks just like him. There are much better photos out there that really show the resemblance.

Klein is not the father; he is so desperate because he is up for medical review and he is losing everything.

The Hollywood dermatologist and professor at UCLA's David Geffen School of Medicine updated his Facebook page Wednesday with an intriguing new status: a photo of himself overlaid with an image of Michael Joseph Jackson (nicknamed Prince), the late music legend's eldest child. Klein wrote the word "hmmmmm" above the photos of the pair, who appear to share a facial resemblance.

A representative for Klein said "that was not Dr. Klein's post, and he removed it." The post is now missing from Klein's timeline.
An attorney for Katherine Jackson, the kids' grandmother and co-guardian with their cousin TJ Jackson, declined comment."

The older the boy gets, the more he looks like Arnie. It's already known that MJ asked Arnie and Mark Lester for sperm donation, kids consecutively. Anyone who thinks any of these kids are MJ's bio are delusional. I have yet to see a child born of black/white that didn't have some trait (usually the hair) of African-American. None of these kids display any characteristics of being bi-racial, so it's pretty obvious to anyone with 1/2 brain. That being said, MJ is certainly the father in every other respect.

Michael Jackson's Dermatologist Denies Implying He Fathered Singer's Eldest Son

----


The Hollywood dermatologist and professor at UCLA's David Geffen School of Medicine updated his Facebook page Wednesday with an intriguing new status: a photo of himself overlaid with an image of Michael Joseph Jackson (nicknamed Prince), the late music legend's eldest child. Klein wrote the word "hmmmmm" above the photos of the pair, who appear to share a facial resemblance.

Prince was born Feb. 13, 1997 to Jackson and the singer's ex-wife, Debbie Rowe. His sister, Paris Jackson, arrived a year later. When the couple divorced in 1999, Rowe handed over custody of Prince and Paris to Jackson. An anonymous surrogate mother gave birth to the kids' younger brother, Prince Michael II (or "Blanket"), in February 2002.

Jackson, who died in 2009, had said that he's the biological father of the children.

Klein was Jackson's dermatologist; speculation has been swirling for years over his relationship to Prince and Paris and whether they are actually his children. Klein previously has denied that he's the father.

A representative for Klein said "that was not Dr. Klein's post, and he removed it." The post is now missing from Klein's timeline.

An attorney for Katherine Jackson, the kids' grandmother and co-guardian with their cousin TJ Jackson, declined comment.

According to a recent Klein profile in Vanity Fair, Rowe was Klein's medical assistant; she confirmed after Jackson's death that Prince and Paris were conceived artificially but never has spoken publicly about whether Klein is the father.

In a January 2012 interview with The New York Times, Klein's close friend, actress Carrie Fisher, had this response when asked about the paternity rumors: "I don't talk about it with Arnie, but it has never made sense to me. Why would Michael pay Debbie Rowe $6 million for a child that wasn't his? But I have said to Arnie, 'Please don't say you're the father anymore.' "

Arnie needs to STFU. Why is he doing this NOW? Poor Prince. Who'd want this fat drug pusher of a physician for a father. NO. Michael is the father. He acted AS the father until his death. I despise this fat old odd man.

well, Majestik already said everything I was going to say. I do wonder where Paris got those gorgeous blue eyes though.

I am more inclined to believe that the father of Prince Michael II (the youngest child) is Christian Brando, Marlon Brando's son. He and Michael were good
friends and they certainly do resemble each other.

There is a big difference then your sperm donor and your father. Michael Jackson may have been a bit strange, but from what I can see, he was an excellent FATHER.
Is this need-to-be jerk after money. If so, give him a quarter and tell him to get lost.

Sounds like a broke Doc looking for money! Michael raised them so he is their Dad. Go looking for money else where, don't put his kids through any thing.
