Jackson's fatherhood questioned: Website

BIZARRE in life, Michael Jackson's complex personal affairs are taking even stranger twists in death, with reports on Tuesday questioning the parentage of his children.

After five days of glowing emotional tributes to Jackson's musical genius, attention has turned to the murkier side of the "Thriller" singer.

Celebrity Website, which broke the news of Jackson's death, reported the entertainer was not the biological father of his three children and that his ex-wife, Debbie Rowe, was not their genetic mother.

Citing multiple but unnamed sources, TMZ said all three children were conceived "in vitro" but that neither Jackson's sperm nor Rowe's eggs were used.

Rowe was quoted as saying in 2004 that Jackson was not the biological father of Michael Jr, 12, and Paris, 11, but she had been assumed to be their mother. The third child, Prince Michael II, was born in 2002 and the identity of his surrogate mother has never been known.

Celebrity magazine Us said the biological father of Michael Jr and Paris was Jackson's dermatologist, for whom Rowe once worked.

The question of parentage is important because the children stand to inherit a share of what is believed to be the pop star's multimillion-dollar estate.

Whoever has guardianship over the three children will control the money.
