Debbie Rowe Slams Report, Insists She is Biological Mother

by at . Comments

A lawyer for Debbie Rowe is denying reports that she is not the biological mother of Michael Jackson's two older children, Michael Jr., 12, and Paris, 11.

"We refuse to be drawn into addressing the various rumors and speculation swirling in the media," said Debbie Rowe's attorney Marta Almli.

"The vast majority of what is out there is untrue. Particularly hurtful and insidious is the most recent rumor which is entirely false concerning the maternity of the children. Ms. Rowe is the biological mother of the two oldest children."

The new issue of Us Weekly reveals that the children's biological father is Arnold Klein, Jackson's L.A.-based dermatologist and Rowe's former boss.

A different report on TMZ also stated that Jackson was not the father of the two kids, but added that Debbie Rowe was not the biological mother.

Jackson's youngest son, Prince Michael II (a.k.a. Blanket), 7, was born to an unnamed surrogate. That woman's name has never been revealed.

Michael Jackson and Debbie Rowe were briefly married in the late '90s. Many questions about their union - including if the marriage was ever consummated - linger.

As for where the children end up from here, that's also anyone's guess.

On Monday - four days after Michael Jackson's June 25 death - his mother, Katherine Jackson, was awarded temporary legal guardianship of all three children, even though Rowe is still the legal parent of Michael Jr. and Paris.

Katherine Jackson's 22-page petition claims the kids "have no relationship with their biological mother." A hearing on the petition is scheduled for August 3.

The birth certificates for both children list Jackson as the father and Rowe as the mother. This likely means little from a biological standpoint, for any adopted child or child born via surrogate would still list the adoptive parents' names.

The place of birth for Michael Jr. is Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. The place of birth for Paris is listed as Spaulding Pain Medical Center in Beverly Hills.

Interestingly, Michael Jackson Jr. is often referred to as Prince Michael I (and Blanket as Prince Michael II) though this is not his name. Also, Paris' name is technically Paris-Michael, and Rowe signed Paris' certificate as Debbie Rowe-Jackson.
