MIchael Jackson's Family

Don't Ask

'Who's The Daddy?"

Michael Jackson
's family is pleading with the judge in their wrongful death lawsuit against AEG Live to EXCLUDE any evidence of the paternity of MJ's 3 kids.

TMZ has obtained legal docs in which Katherine Jackson, Blanket, Paris and Prince argue ... it's irrelevant for a jury to hear evidence about the conception of the 3 kids. Specifically, they believe AEG has no right to delve into their biological parentage. 

The Jackson crew also wants to exclude any evidence that MJ's siblings have financial problems.  They worry AEG might try to argue that the real force behind the lawsuit is the need for cash.

And mama Jackson and the kids want the judge to bar evidence or any mention of child molestation allegations, partly because MJ was never found guilty.

A judge has yet to rule on the motions.

Who cares who is the biological donor. Who protected these children? Who gave them a home? Who loved these children like no one else on this earth? Michael did! By the way, the biological daddy of the two older children is the dermatologist. I honestly believe from his looks that Blanket is Michael's biological child, but, A Sperm Donor is not always a father. A loving caring man to his children- such as Michael Jackson was to these children, make him their father.

Whether or not they are biologically his (which I don't believe they are) doesn't really matter. They are LEGALLY his children, LEGALLY his off spring, LEGALLY his heirs! Many children are born these days through IVF with donor sperm and eggs. He was their father case closed! I hope these kids can grow up as normal and happy as can be. I hope they become successful well balanced responsible adults. Yes there should be a wrongful death lawsuit, he died untimely and at the hands of medical malpractice for sure! 40 Billion - you can ask for anyhting, lawyers do that, not the individual complainants. And cases are rarely ever settled or a judgment found for the requested monetary damages. Let a Jury or Judge decide.

MJ is NOT the father    

MJ is clearly NOT the father of any of these kids. He was too busy getting high on Diprovan etc to sleep all the time. This is the same guy who told Martin Bashir on National TV that he gave little boys "Jesus Juice" when they slept over. A lot of the kids were child stars too who haven't really spoken about those sleepovers. They may not have found MJ guilty. But they aquitted him like they did with OJ Simpson who are BOTH guilty of the charges in my eyes. Michael had too many issues to raise kids which he didn't. He left them with a Nanny and was a weirdo who covered the kids' faces with Scarves and Masks because he was extremely paranoid. So how can a person like that be a father??? He also went to court in Pajamas and looked drugged up when he was out in public. I like his music but not the things he did. Plus, TMZ proved after his death the pics they posted of "Bleach" cream and tubes of it in his home....This guy was as Black as his Mother and father. The whole family had surgery also. However most of them stayed Black. La Toya and one of his Brothers looks white like they pulled a MJ with their skin who used to be Black if you notice. What is scary is La Toya looks most like Michael bleaching, and surgery with the same nose and face which is freakish!!! They are NOT normal. Debbie Rowe and the surrogate in Europe for Blanket were BOTH reportedly paid off when those kids to NOT be able to see them by MJ. He did not want Debbie Rowe, who tried multiple times, to see the two oldest kids who she is the mother of! How F'd up is that??? She had every right to see kids he wanted her to have for him for whatever reason. So any of you who think those kids have African American blood in any of them, you better get an eye exam and also look up MJ in the beginning of his career where he is totally VERY Black and had a big nose and looked "Normal". He should have left himself alone. But he had insecurities where he didn't see himself as "Normal" to go as far as he did and also said he didn't want to look anything like his father, looks or weight wise regarding the starvation diets, surgeries and bleaching until he was way past what a white person even looks like. Then you wonder why he was dubbed "Wacko Jacko" because of his eccentricities. A person who sleeps with boys, constanly lied about any allegations, gives alcohol to kids etc. can in no way be a fit father. Even Lisa Marie said he played "Child" games in bed at night and didn't act normal in their marriage at all on Oprah many years ago and how he wore Makeup to bed...I think she would be the one to tell you more about their marriage. I find it quite interesting being she went on National TV when he was alive to tell Oprah about their marriage. I'm sure there is more to it. Elvis would have been rolling in his grave if he was alive and knew she married him at that time. I doubt Elvis would have even approved of the freak show she was with. I'm even more surprised MJ dated any woman or got married...It's too bad he couldn't live a life normally without pissing his money away and being broke ass in the end pretty much. That's probably why Katherine Jackson is looking for more money. It's because they must have went through what little he saved for those kids who aren't his. I don't think there was a wrongful death in any way. So I don't know if she would even get any money. I don't think she should being that he OD'd on multiple drugs not just Diprovan. He had a LOT of drugs besides that according the the coroner that were in his system. He and his family claimed his addiction was due to the Pepsi incident. Even if he had to take meds for that, he reportedly "Shopped" around for more than one doctor like other celebs who are alive or dead. Anna Nicole, Elvis, Britney Murphy and more...They found docs who would write them many scripts under various names because they were addicts. Anyhow, I and am sure many others want to know the paternity of these children. Now that would be damning info if they let that out. The Jackson family is good at taking things to the grave and I am sure Katherine and Joe and the rest of the family of liars will. Shame on the Jacksons for living a life full of lies and messing with those kids' heads. How the hell did that family end up with kids who aren't his??? Will Debbie Rowe and Blanket's parents please stand up? Seriously, I hope that day comes. It's never too late for any of them to come forward and blast the truth and get those kids in their custody if they really wanted to fight for them.

Haven't we seen and heard enough about the Jackson's? Let them pursue their lives without the public having to know every little detail. I hope never to see or hear the name Michael Jackson or his kids ever again.

I Was About To Say    

As someone said earlier, hate is jealousy, and jealousy is the best compliment in the world. MJ would be happy with all this. You are all so jealous you will never have 1/3 of the money he had, even tho he was in debt he was living larger then you will ever live, he had the best clothes and ate the best food and bought whatever he wanted, and you will likely be living in an apartment or trailor house with just jeans, eating a corn dog trying to figure out how to pay for your electric bill before they shut it off, LOL!!

Regardless of what is a personal assumption of who the father is, PARIS, PRINCE & BLANKET are human beings and they are still children. Be adult and allow them to grow up with a sense of dignity and belonging as you would want for ANY child. It’s shameful how these children are being used as pawns to generate revenue for tabloid trash. And just as shameful the comments adults, probably mothers and fathers themselves, feel obliged to post with no consideration for the emotional damage being inflicted on them. Leave those children out of this. Michael loved them. I wish he was still here guiding and protecting them. Most of these comments regarding them are simply disgraceful! There are other things going on in this world that needs attacking. Paris, Prince & Blanket’s parentage is NOT one of them.

La Toya Is NOT Backing Down! Jackson Defends Her ‘Omarosa Probably Pulled The Cord On Michael Clarke Duncan’ Jab

Posted on Mar 20, 2013 @ 4:03AM | By alevyradar

La Toya Jackson, appearing on Tuesday night’s edition of Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, didn’t back down when Andy Cohen grilled her about her controversial remarks about Omarosa Ma****ult — that the reality star “probably pulled the cord on” late fiance Michael Clarke Duncan — following her elimination on last week’s All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.

Omarosa “looked like she was really pushing you,” Andy told La Toya. “Do you regret what you said at the end? About the life support and Michael Clarke Duncan?

La Toya responded, “I must have said, ‘I wouldn’t be surprised if … and that was a statement, because everybody knows” about Omarosa’s character.

“She tried to sabotage everything [on Celebrity Apprentice] … she looks out for her reputation real well, she really does. All the team members felt they never met a person like that before. And of course, I haven’t!”

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the sparks flew on Sunday’s episode when the two women clashed while assigned to the same team, ultimately resulting in La Toya falling on her sword as project manager, and getting the boot from Donald Trump.

On her way out, the 56-year-old sister of the late Michael Jackson called Omarosa, 39, “the most evil person I have ever met” and a “conniving, scheming, cut-throat” snake.

“She … probably pulled the cord on Michael Duncan Clarke,” La Toya groused, which got a swift response from Omarosa, who issued a statement via her attorney detailing her plans to sue La Toya for the “false, vicious and defamatory” comments regarding The Green Mile star’s shocking death last year.

“It is repulsive and of the lowest level of class for Ms. Jackson, who showed herself to be a ‘sore loser’ in making these disgusting statements in the wake of” Duncan’s death, Omarosa’s attorney told us in an exclusive statement Monday. “As her counsel, we have been directed to pursue these defamatory statements to the fullest extent of the law with La Toya Jackson and any other participating publications or media outlets who repeat or repost these statements.”

It makes a difference because he never adopted them. He paid for them and claimed them as his (paternally). Paying for children without adoption, especially the money coming from such an infamous pedophile is legally relevant.
