Arnold Klein: Biological Father of Michael Jackson's Children

by at . Comments

Michael Jackson used to be married to Debbie Rowe, but neither were the biological parents of the singer's first two children, Michael Jr., 12, and Paris, 11.

Their father is Arnold Klein, Jackson's L.A.-based dermatologist and Rowe's former boss, multiple sources confirm to celebrity gossip magazine Us Weekly.

"He is the dad," says an insider of Arnold Klein, who has not commented. "He and Debbie signed an agreement saying they would never reveal the truth."

While Debbie Rowe and Michael Jackson never confessed to their kids' true lineage, she did admit in 2002 that she carried his children as a "personal favor."

Neither has confirmed that the marriage was ever consummated.

"I said, 'Let me do this. You need to be a dad. You have been so good to me,'" Rowe - who met Jackson when she was a nurse's assistant in the 1980s - has said.

News that Michael Jackson is not the biological father of any of his kids surfaced earlier today. Now we've learned he never legally adopted them either.

Neither Jackson nor Debbie Rowe are the biological parents of Michael Jr. and Paris. Nor is Michael the biological parent of Prince Michael Jackson II.

Jackson never filed legal papers to adopt any of his children. Legal experts say Jackson would be presumed the father but it's not conclusive by any means.

As for why Jackson didn't formally adopt them - some speculate at the time they were born, there was no third party he though would try to claim custody.

Jackson apparently never thought Rowe would mount a custody battle, which wasn't totally absurd, as she actually tried to give up all rights to them once.

However, the music icon's death at the age of 50 last Thursday, along with today's developments, has everyone guessing where the children will end up.

But after they were born he was a real and loving dad to these children--- and the only one they had.

It's funny that people are complaining that a celeb page might not be accurate. The celeb industry mostly use people who failed to be a real journalist, and rely on brainwashing gullible people into caring about the trash they fill their pages with.

I never saw such a pack of undereducated "i doesnt no no grammar" idiots in my life, not to mention "i doesnt no how to spel gud" either! Klein never sought to be identified as the father of ANY of MJ's children. He was "outed" by the press! That cow debbie didn't contribute to the gene pool of any of MJ's kids, either.

Mixed children can be born with any tint of skin. I have a redheaded, blue eyed mixed child, and two who look like they are hispanic mix rather than black...ps, same two parents for all! Some gene pools are deeper than others.

Okay so this skin disorder discolors your skin right but how did he just turn pale out of no where no dark patches or anything just turned straight white and if you believe his kids have the same thing ur an a** those kids were born white this is not about being racist and the article is about MJ being the biological father not who took care of them and took on that role to be their guardian!!!

@ HUH!!

His skin did have dark patches you can see them is some pictures but for the most part he covered them in public - with long sleeve shirts and with makeup. When the white patches got bigger tan the dark patches he started using bleach on the dark patches to try and even the skin tone out. I have seen people with vitiligo and it looks awful; like something contagious. I actually heard one man saying that Jackson's struggle with vitiligo and his death made him feel like he didn't have to hide his anymore, that now people know what it is - even if you don't.

look guest u dont got to get nasty about it an u dumb as hell bc paris jackson has blue eyes not green first of all and second i do know how to spell vitiligo ok i am a fast typer so i dont know who u calling a idiot alright get your eyes checked

therealtruth is a realidiot, learn to spell VITILIGO. Whoever believes Klein, Lester, and the media over MJ and Debbie is really stupid. MJ is the father of all three, Prince has Vitiligo just like MJ and Paris eyes is green just her grandpa Joe Jackson not blue. The kids tanish skin color is the same color as Rashida Jone and Wentworth Miller, not pale pink white like Arnold and Lester. Paris herself says she mixed race. So I rather believe Michael, Debbie and Paris than those fame whoring liars Arnold Klein and Mark Lester. Even Carrie Fisher/Princess Leia wrote it in her book that Arnold Klein is lying about being the father of MJ children and does it for fame.
