MJ's Mom

Fears Debbie Rowe Will

Blow Lid Off MJ Paternity

4/18/2013 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lawyers for Katherine Jackson have been nosing around ... trying to find out what Debbie Rowe might say under oath about the paternity of the two kids she bore while married to Michael Jackson.

Sources connected to Katherine tell TMZ ... her lawyers have been making a number of inquiries on the eve of the family's wrongful death trial against AEG Live.

We're told lawyers worry Debbie will testify Michael is NOT the biological father of Prince and Paris.  TMZ broke the story back in 2009 ... Michael indeed is not the biological father.

Debbie is on the witness list for both Katherine and AEG Live.  AEG has taken Debbie's deposition but -- shockingly -- we've learned AEG never asked Debbie a single question about paternity as it relates to MJ.

As for why Katherine's lawyers are so interested in Debbie's testimony ... she's the one who knows the most about MJ and the paternity, and they're worried AEG may try to prove the kids don't have any legal ties to Michael, which could torpedo their damage claim.

Katherine's lawyers have already filed legal docs asking the judge to exclude any evidence of paternity.  The judge has yet to rule on the motion.

In the end, none of this may amount to anything because under California law ... when a woman gives birth while living with her husband, the husband is conclusively presumed to be the father, unless he's sterile or impotent.

There is case law that requires a male to pay child support for kids that are not his because, 1) the mother was married to the child when the child was born and 2) the bonding between the man and the child.

MJ would be considered the children's father.

this is a lie, Debbie and some other legal friend of hers has all ready confirmed on national television, more than once that MJ is the biological father. It's no different than that Depeche mode guy who is half Black. Genes don't always work the way we think they should.

Additionally, the kids's paternity is irrelevant to the case. Third, Blanket's mother is Black and MJ is also the biological father.

MJ was not gay nor was he asexual, he just had the sense enough to no go around parading his flings. He's had plenty of relationships, that I know about and that none of you will ever know about.

La Toya Jackson said she can sense her late brother Michael’s ghost tap dancing around her home — seriously.

The 56-year-old sister of pop’s fallen king described feeling M.J.’s presence to Good Day New York anchors Rosanna Scotto and Greg Kelly Wednesday.

“It’s the strangest thing because you feel something like thick around you or behind you and you’re wondering — you don’t see anything, but you feel a presence … it’s very interesting because it is there, it’s definitely there,” La Toya said.

The Ind.-born La Toya, who’s been seen on Celebrity Apprentice and Big Brother UK, said one of her home security guards also noticed the presence, confirming her suspicion.

“When [the security guard] told me I said, ‘You’re kidding!’ That made me want to know even more about hearing someone tap dance over a certain part of the house … well, Michael used to do that every Sunday for two hours.

“We go up there and no one’s up there — just tap dancing. And the dog barks at his room, the window, every single night at the same time … the dog doesn’t even know that that’s Michael’s room, and the security didn’t know. It’s weird!”

La Toya was on to promote her reality show Life with La Toya, which airs Saturdays at 10:30/9:30c p.m. on OWN.

You guys should think twice about all the stuff spread in the internet about Michael Jackson & his family. Most ppl forget how loving & caring Michael was, what his true message was. And mostly what he all gave to us! We should be thankful - and not abandon him. Always think about him as a true humanitarian with a pure heart! Not weird, not wacko!
Since his passing this crap became worse. Leave his family alone; stop judging in a false way. It’s painful & it’s disgusting. For reading the truth about the trial check following links. Then make your conclusions. Thank you! L.O.V.E. <3

In California the "husband" is "presumed" to be the father of any children born during the marriage even if the husband is not the biological father, UNLESS he is IMPOTENT OR STERILE -- Well, THAT clinches it -- we ALL know that MJ falls in to BOTH of those categories. HOWEVER, regardless of WHO Paris's father is -- she's BEAUTIFUL and is a SPITTING image of her mother when Debbie was younger.

God bless Mrs. Jackson, but it's a shame that a woman in her 80s is dealing with so many issues, related to her deceased child. I am almost certain it's got to be about those other children, who were left out of the will, that she's being forced to do this.

Regardless of biology, Michael is the father of those children. PERIOD.

How STUPID could katherine be to believe Debbie would deny that Michael is the father of her 2 children.

It doesn't matter if he's the biological father or not! He brought those kids up as his own since the second they were born! Therefore he's their dad
