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.

Yeah just give the kids a freaking DNA test. But regardless of the results Michael Jackson raised, loved, cared, and provided for those children therefore he is truly their father and the only father they've known and thats all that counts.

A sperm donor has no rights and there was no need for Michael to officially adopt Prince and Paris since he was legally married to Debbie when they were born, therefore he is their father. His name is on the birth certificates. Even if the kids wouldn't be his bio children, he was still their daddy in every sense of the word. He loved them, raised them and cared for them. To me, that makes someone a father, not DNA. He has been their father since they were born and always will be. All these people are just greedy vultures who are now trying to exploit the kids as their father is gone. Disgusting. Why is it so f*cking hard for people to finally let MJ rest in peace and allow these poor children mourn in private with their family? I'm really worried for those poor babies, now everyone can finally see how amazingly well Michael protected them when he was alive. Before we didn't even know what they looked like and now their faces are everywhere. So sad.

Who cares about Dr. Klein and his sperm donation? The bottomline is once you donate your sperm or eggs(for women) you lose ALL legal rights to any child conceived thereafter. Let me also remind you that MJ doesn't have to legally adopt any child born to him through surrogacy or sperm donation because the legal document provided in one's doctor's office takes care of that mess.I have seen these documents and read them very well, they are quite clear about the rights of all participants. Both the donor and reciever are informed about the process. There's no need for a DNA test because no matter what because its irrelevant for the case at hand. Dr. Klein should suck it up and face his own business. These kids are MJ's kids and will remain so forever. If in the future they decide to investigate who their biological parents are so be it but for now allow these kids to grieve their dearly beloved dad!

There's no need for a DNA test because no matter what you DO NOT have any LEGAL rights after donating (selling, in my opinion) your body parts. Dr. Klein should suck it up and face his own business.
