It Just Got Weirder

US Weekly now claims that Michael Jackson is not the biological father of his two oldest children.

The real father is Jackson’s dermatologist, Dr. Arnold Klein, says the mag.

TMZ chimes in with the claim that Debbie Rowe, Jackson’s ex-wife who carried the first two kids, is not the biological mother, either. She was (supposedly) a surrogate only, with the eggs coming from elsewhere.

Which sets things up nicely for a complicated custody battle in which none of the participants is actually related in any way to the children. (Unless the dermatologist jumps in.)

Although Rowe is not the biological mother, it’s not a slam dunk that she would lose a custody battle. This type of case has never been litigated in California courts. Since Rowe was married to Jackson when Michael Jr. and Paris were born, there’s a presumption that she’s the biological parent. That presumption can be rebutted by other evidence.
