They are saying that Jackson felt there was no third party whom he believed would try to claim custody of the children and that’s why he never filed legal papers to adopt the children.

Here is another shocker in the never-ending MJ saga.
There is a new report that says the biological father of Michael Jackson’s two oldest children is his dermatologist, Dr. Arnold Klein.
The surrogate mother, Debbie Rowe, once worked for Klein as a receptionist.
Debbie Rowe is NOT the biological mother of Michael’s two children.
According to TMZ, all three children were conceived in vitro.
The online tabloid magazine is saying that Jackson’s sperms and Rowe’s eggs were NOT used, Rowe was just the surrogate mother and she was paid very well for her service.
According to the British online magazine News of the World, Debbie Rowe confessed that Michael Jackson is not the biological father of her two children.
In an astonishing interview, Rowe said Prince, 12, and Paris, 11, were conceived by artificial insemination by an anonymous donor and, she does not want custody of the children, and she does not care to see them.
The former receptionist of a Beverly Hills dermatology clinic said she met the singer during his frequent visits for facial chemical peels and skin treatments at skin specialist Dr. Arnold Klein’s office.
She said that she and the singer became very friendly and occasionally, he would ask her to come into the doctor’s office with him.
According to Rowe, one day Jackson confided in her about how his first wife, Lisa Marie Presley, refused to have children with him, and after his divorce, he became lonely and told her how he really wanted kids.
She said she wanted to make him happy so one day she said, “I will have your babies,” and offered him her womb as a gift.
She said she was impregnated like one of her thoroughbreds on her California farm, and she said she was just the vessel that was used to deliver the children, but Jackson’s sperm was not used to impregnate her.
Rowe said after second birth, she was all torn up inside and Jackson wanted nothing to do with her.
The 50-year-old former receptionist said her marriage to Jackson was a sham. She said the three years she was married to Jackson she never had sex with the singer. She did however say that Jackson is not gay and she do not believe any of the allegations that he was a child molester.
“I got paid for it, and I’ve moved on. I know I will never see my children again,” she confessed.
Rowe said she is going public with her story because now that the singer is dead she is no longer shackled by a legal agreement to keep quiet.
