The bizarre revelations about the life and death of pop icon Michael Jackson keep coming, but this has to be one of the strangest so far.
Sources have told TMZ that Jackson is not the biological father of his three kids Prince Michael I, Paris and Prince Michael II (Blanket), which doesn’t really surprise anyone. But here’s the zinger—Debbie Rowe isn’t their bio-mom, either. All three are “designer babies” conceived in vitro and carried by surrogates. The sperm donor for the two older children was Rowe’s boss, Jackson’s dermatologist Arnold Klein. The donors for the youngest child have not been determined.
This is bound to further complicate the already tangled issue of Jackson’s estate. He did not legally adopt any of the three children, although he and Rowe are likely to be considered the legal parents of the two older kids, as they were married when they were born.
It’s a shame that someone with Jackson’s money and power couldn’t have taken steps to assure the financial and emotional future of the children he loved so much. As it is, they are the innocent pawns in what is sure to be a bitter and protracted battle over their father’s estate.
