Us Weekly magazine reports in its upcoming issue, which hits newsstands tomorrow, that Dr. Arnold Klein is the man who fathered Prince and Paris.
The kid’s mother, Debbie Rowe, once worked for Klein. Rowe is Jewish
“He is the dad,” a Jackson insider said of Klein. “He and Debbie signed an agreement saying they would never reveal the truth.”
In 1993, Jackson told Oprah Winfrey he had a skin disease and instructed Klein to release an official statement disclosing the King of Pop’s pigmentation disorder.
In the months prior to Jackson’s death, he made frequent visits to Klein’s Beverly Hills offices.
But the celebrity Web site TMZ.com reports today that Rowe is not the biological mother of the two kids she bore claims she for Jackson.
The site reported that all three of Jack’s kids were conceived in vitro — outside the womb with the help of an egg and sperm donor — and that Rowe was just a surrogate.
Jacko met Rowe at Kleins’ Beverly Hills office when he was a patient.
Niether Jackson or Rowe ever admitted to the kids’ true lineage, although she confessed in 2002 that she carried the children as a personal favor.
Following Jackson’s death on Thursday, Rowe told London’s News of the World that The Gloved One was not the children’s biological father.
She declined to reveal who was.
Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr. — also known as “Prince” — is now 11.
His daughter, Paris Michael Katherine Jackson, is 10.
The mother of Jackson’s third child, Prince Michael II, remains a mystery.
