I really didn’t want to have to do this but… I hate reading so many lies spread in so many places about Michael Jackson and especially about these children.
Things you need to consider when discussing these children’s paternity.
Prince Jackson has vitiligo
This under arm mark appeared as early as April (attending Paris’ birthday):
Specialists have confirmed this is vitiligo and not any other skin disorders
New York dermatologist Brian Bonanni studied several photographsClick the image to open in full size. of Prince Michael for INSIDE EDITION and said, “It’s pretty clear that this is probably vitiligo,” said Bonanni.
“That looks like vitiligo,” said Dr. Raymond Boissy, professor of Dermatology at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine and president of the National Vitiligo Foundation after seeing the vacation photos.
Though he said he cannot provide a diagnosis without examining Prince Michael directly, Boissy said “there are very few other dermatology issues that would render that spot so white.”
In many cases, the appearance of de-pigmented lesions alone, especially in regions like the underarm, groin, and elbows, is sufficient evidence to diagnose vitiligo, says Caroline Le Poole, an associate professor of pathology at Loyola University who studies vitiligo.
People close to Prince have confirmed this is vitiligo
Rabbi Boteach on Howard Stern, 6th April 2001
Howard: “Did he father those kids?”
Rabbi: “Of course. Prince looks like his father. He has Michael’s eyes, the same blotches on his skin.”
Hi, I want to know if Prince has vitiligo too? And Karen, have you talked to Elizabeth Taylor recently? How is she coping? And how is her health?
Karen Faye Kissinger: I spoke with her at Michael’s funeral…we both started crying.
Karen Faye Kissinger: yes. Prince has vitiligo
Prince’s mother, dermatology nurse Debbie Rowe, became close to Jackson while treating him for vitiligo, and the pair married in 1996.
“Vitiligo is on my father’s side and Prince has it, too – on his arms and chest,” the singer’s sister La Toya Jackson said in an interview with new! magazine.
And nope, it’s not a birthmark:
According to research, “Between 30-40% of patients with vitiligo have a positive family history suggesting genetic causation.” (source)
Vitiligo normally affects 1-2% of the population and people with autoimmune disorders cannot donate sperm, so how did he happen to have such a coincidental disease?
People who have said these children are Michael’s:
GRACE: To Brian Oxman, Jackson family attorney. We’re throwing around the theory that she doesn’t really want these children. Let`s just get right down to it. Are they his biological children? Are these two kids, two out of three he had with Debbie Rowe — are they his biological children?
OXMAN: Yes, they are, Nancy. They are his biological children.
OXMAN: From everything that I can see and from what everyone in this family has told me, they are his children.
Tito Jackson insisted yesterday there is one simple test that proves his brother Michael is truly the biological father of his children.
All the doubters have to do to see the likeness is look into their eyes – especially those of Jackson’s youngest Blanket.
Tito said: “They are all his children. Blanket is Michael’s, I can tell. Those eyes don’t lie. Them eyes are Michael over again. I see a lot of Michael in him.”
Tito said it was ridiculous so many people should question Jackson’s parenthood because the children have such light skins – especially when Prince and Paris’s mum Debbie Rowe is white.
He added: “Paris and Prince are Michael’s children. Yes they are. Just because they look white doesn’t mean they are not his.
“I have an uncle who is married to a white girl and they have three kids. Two of them are white and one is black.
“When they go to school people don’t even know they are brother and sister.
“They are all Michael’s children. Prince looks just like my grandfather. There’s no question they are Michael’s. They are 100% his.
“The kids are like three peas in a pod. They remind me of me and my brothers when we were growing up.”
Tito admitted not even he knew the identity of Blanket’s mum. He added: “Nobody knows who his mother is, nobody. That’s the million dollar question. When I find out I’ll call you!”
KING: With all the rumors swirling around, did she ever tell you that Michael wasn’t the father?
FINSILVER: I know that Michael was the father.
KING: Was the father.
FINSILVER: One hundred percent, Michael is the father of those two children. Yes.
It has been said that the only reason Michael Jackson married Debbie Rowe was so that under Californian law his paternity to those children would not be questioned. This is a strange thing to say because Michael only married Debbie once the news of her pregnancy had reached the media – in fact barely a week later. Debbie was around 6 months pregnant when she married him, if he was that worried, why not marry her the second she became pregnant? Why was he willing to risk someone else challenging his paternity?
Following on from that, he never married the mother of Blanket and therefore anyone can legally challenge his paternity. Nobody has.
Matt Fiddes may have tried to throw his hat into the ring but in doing so he only exposed just how easy it is to sell stories about being the possible father of Michael’s children. And again, he has claimed to be Blanket’s possible father, but has failed to legally or biologically challenge the Jacksons or the estate about this.
If this was all planned IVF for Debbie to give birth to another man’s child, why are so many people adament that they had sex together? Arnold Klein (yup), Debbie’s lawyer Iris Finsilver, Brian Oxman, Tonya Watts, Mary Colandro, Kevin Forrest and Debbie Rowe and Michael Jackson. In their divorce agreement Debbie agreed not to discuss his sex life publically; so it seems absurd to believe he was then also asking her to tell these people they’d had sex.
In fact, the news story about her being pregnant broke because she blabbed without her knowledge to a journalist from News of The World. One of the things she said? They’d been having sex to conceive.
At the time it was reported in the Associated Press that Michael had performed a paternity test on Prince before he was born in order to ensure that this would be his child:
The Associated Press , December 22 1996
LONDON – After DNA tests confirmed that he is the father, Michael Jackson signed a multimillion-dollar deal with his pregnant wife, a British newspaper said. Under the headline “Jacko Buys His Baby,”The Daily Mirror reported Friday that Debbie Rowe would be paid $1.25 million when the child is born, and $280,000 a year after that for as long as the couple is together. Citing an unidentified source, the newspaper said Jackson would pay Rowe $2.3 million if..
The Jacksons, like most Black people in America, are mixed. Michael has Native American Indian on both sides of his parents, White on both sides and Chinese on his mother’s part.
The reason he divorced Lisa Marie was because he wanted to have his own children – his own children – and she wasn’t willing to have them. She already had two White children of her own, but this didn’t seem to be enough for him. Lisa Marie’s family were pretty upset at the idea of Lisa having any Black children… so it seems very likely Michael had been trying to impregnate her himself. Why divorce her just to have another man’s child? And why with Soccer Mum Debbie Rowe, as though she’s this perfect White beauty?
There was a widely spread story that Debbie Rowe herself had denied that Michael Jackson is the father of these children. This came from an interview in News of The World she supposedly gave three days after Michael Jackson died where she allegedly called herself a “vessel” and a “thoroughbred.” If that wasn’t enough to clue you in that it was a fake:
Rowe has been quick to try to rebut or silence false reports. The lawsuit states that her attorneys got News of the World to remove a story based on assertions made by White. Earlier this week, Rowe’s attorney demanded a retraction from the New York Post after the paper ran a story claiming she had accepted a payout to drop her custody bid.
Debbie successfully sued the woman who had been selling these false stories for $270,000.
People state that Michael had issues with his racial identity (yes, they seem to be the same people who believe his vitiligo was “induced”) and use Prince’s bleached blonde hair as an example of Michael desiring blonde White children. I wish these people would think rationally for a second. If Michael had been so intent on having blonde White children and had been shopping around for sperm (according to Mark Lester) then why had he not chosen a blonde male sperm donor (such as Mark Lester) to begin with? Why did he go on to not select a blonde sperm donor for Paris and then go on to choose a seemingly even darker haired sperm donor for Blanket?
Thanks to DreamPeaceLove, a quick Polygenics lesson on the alleles involved in skin colouring:
Thats the contiunuum. And that’s only a 3 gene cross, there are estimates there are up to 6 genes involved in skin colour.
If you look at this cross, if Michael is 2 black circles and one white (he had White ancestry) and Debbie is 3 white, look how very likely the kids are for whiteness. It is NOT black + white = brown.
And following from that, these are White children:
These are not White kids:
You can really see the difference when you compare Paris’ skin colouring to her mother’s:
Paris compared to Lionel Richie’s mixed race daughter
And Paris compared to Quincy Jones’ daughter Rashida Jones
Here you can see Paris with her aunts and uncles and you can see that her skin tone blends in with them.
How about compared to some children who really are White? Prince and Paris holding hands with Mark Lester’s daughter, March 2009.
Photos of his children have been photoshopped in the media to appear lighter than they are.
The original photos on the left and then how they appeared in OK! magazine
A recent example, three different media outlets reported this story, with her colouring changing with each one. The original untouched photo is the darker colouring, the one on the right.
More photos of his vitiligo, taken as early as 2008
He still has those same markings in the new photos:
And yes… there is a family resemblance and it’s not with any dermatologists.
Prince’s grandfather, Samuel Jackson
Prince & Mike around the same age
Most MJ fans have noticed something about MJ…
The flipper feet and his very large hands… Prince on the left, Blanket on the right…
Prince has those hands
And even Paris has the feet (especially compared to Grace’s):

Where does she get her green eyes from?
And her natural hair is curly:
Is there even a question about Blanket’s paternity?
And he tans pretty dark for a white kid, huh?
And the kids are obviously related, so whats the link?
Here are some other biracial well known people. In each case at least one parent identifies as Black or in a couple of cases both parents identify as such
