With the passing of superstar Michael Jackson, comes the rumors and speculation of how he died, as well as how he lived his life and any secrets he may have been keeping. According to Debbie Rowe, Jackson’s ex-wife and the mother of his two oldest children – Prince Michael and Paris – Michael did not biologically father them as previously claimed.
Rowe, in an interview with News of The World, claims she was artificially inseminated by an anonymous donor.
Debbie said, “Michael was divorced, lonely and wanted children. I was the one who said to him, ‘I will have your babies.’ I offered him my womb – it was a gift. It was something I did to keep him happy. I went to the ‘office’, which is what we called the medical clinic. They impregnated me. It’s just like I impregnate my mares for breeding. It was very technical. Just like I stick the sperm up my horse, this is what they did to me. I was his thoroughbred.”
She continued, “I was just the vessel. It wasn’t Michael’s sperm. I got paid for it, and I’ve moved on. I know I will never see my children again.”
The 50-year-old revealed that she and Michael never had sex during their marriage, says that Lisa Marie Presley, whom Michael married in 1996 – they later divorced in 1999 – refused to have his baby, so Debbie offered when they were together. She said Michael wanted to marry her so they could appear to be a real “family.”
Rowe also claims that the pop star broke it off with her once he found out she was unable to bear more children because she was “all torn up inside.”
She added, “After the second birth had so many problems, he knew I couldn’t have kids any more. He didn’t want anything to do with me. He took the kids. The settlement was written up, and he just wanted me to be quiet.”
During their “sham” marriage, Michael would kiss her on the cheek and go off to sleep in another room. “He wanted to pretend that we were a family. But we never lived together as a couple. We never had sex. He was on the road, doing his thing. He never wanted to live with me. That’s why he bought me a house. There was always ‘my house’ and ‘his house’, never ‘our house’. We would jump in bed together and read magazines and watch movies, wtih all the animals around us before the kids were involved. We used to hang out with each other. But that was his life. That’s Michael. That was what it was like.”
Debbie said she does not want custody of Michael’s children despite reports stating otherwise.
“I was never a good mother, I never felt any attachment to them. It was a better feeling giving them to him than it was keeping them as my own. I know I will never see them again. I was never cut out to be a mother – I was no good. I don’t want these children in my life. My children are my animals now.”
If Debbie Rowe doesn’t want them, then hopefully that means Jackson’s kids can live a somewhat peaceful life with their grandparents and extended family as they so hope.
But what is Rowe’s point in telling the world that Michael is not the biological father of the kids? It certainly doesn’t mean they are any less his children, and I don’t see the purpose of revealing that at this point. And if there was ever a need to give that information, why not just do it privately to the Jackson family (if they arent’ aware of it already)?
Update: According to reports, Debbie Rowe did not give any interview to NOTW…so MJ’s kids could be his biologically (or not).
