However new questions are arising as to their biological connection to Michael - and even to Debbie Rowe who gave birth to the two older children.
Michael had told Martin Bashir in a 2003 interview that all three of his children were conceived with his sperm. "They are all my children,” he said. And why wouldn't they be? Seems in keeping with a super star's huge ego. Unless, of course, he was infertile.
Was Rowe a surrogate using donated eggs as well? There were also reports yesterday that Jackson never filed legal papers to adopt any of his children. Do you have to adopt a child created through surrogacy?
It is also being alleged that the surrogate mother of the youngest did not know who was buying or planned to raise - or do what with - her child. How can that be legal but a freaked out mother, who may not even know she was pregnant, who drops a kid at a non-approved site in a state of shock can be prosecuted for abandonment???
A tangled web...
Meanwhile, before funeral arrangements have been made, family patriarch, Joe Jackson, separated from Katherine - in a very tacky move - turned up at the BET awards in Los Angeles on Sunday night and worked the red carpet, speaking of his late son AND plugging his latest business venture: a record label named Ranch Records. He exploited Michael as a child and apparently plans to continue even after his death.
Not one to ever mince words, Bastardette says:
I can't think of anything more illustrative (along with Octomom) of the American baybee-making-it's-all-about-me-me-me mania that lets little real human beings be artificially created, anonymized, trafficked, and abused for the pleasure of "adults." These freaks should have been locked in cages at Neverland, a prime exhibit of Menken's boobus americanus.
