A new name has surfaced in the Michael Jackson paternity saga, a saga so incredibly weird that it's getting difficult to keep the names straight.
At least this alleged baby mama has only one name (that we know of).
A Mexican nurse named Helena was hand-picked by the late King of Pop to act as surrogate mother to the late star's son Blanket, the Daily Mirror reports.
Blanket (real name Prince Michael Jackson II) was conceived via IVF using the King of Pop's sperm, according to the report, and born on February 21, 2002.
On Blanket's birth certificate, Michael is listed as the father, while the mother’s name is blank. He was born at Sharp Grossmont Hospital in La Mesa, Calif.
The singer's third son was born to Helena, a friend told the Mirror, because the mother of his first two children, Debbie Rowe, had health problems that interfered with any more pregnancies, sending Jackson on a hunt for a new surrogate.
Michael Jackson reportedly paid Helena just $20,000 (?!) for her services, but supplied her with an expense account and a staff of servants at one point.
“He chose Helena because she had a Latino background but she was also a U.S. citizen and had quite fair skin," a friend of Jackson’s told the Mirror.
“He liked her because she was attractive and seemed stable and intelligent. She was a nurse or medical assistant, which he also liked. She was around 5 feet, 4 inches, slim, aged around 30 and had long, dark, straight hair."
"He said she was strait-laced, almost a girl next door type. There were no dramas with her. She knew what she had to do and got on with it.”
A pair of loons who should probably be receiving mental health care, Claire Elisabeth Fields Cruise and Billie Jean Jackson, also claim to be Blanket's mom.
Other rumors have suggested that Pia Bhatti, the mother of Michael's "secret son" Omer Bhatti, was chosen by MJ to carry Blanket. He has many moms.
Elsewhere, Michael is rumored not to have fathered his first two children.
His friends Mark Lester and Arnold Klein - both of whom donated sperm to the singer - have been the subject of paternity rumors regarding Michael Jr. and Paris Jackson.
