Claire Elisabeth Fields Cruise claims that she’s the biological mother of all three of Michael Jackson’s kids.
Only, get this: She neither donated eggs nor carried the children in her womb.
Citing “technology that is in existence,” Cruise says that after conceiving the children — with a Frenchman, an an “unofficial” high school sweetheart (who quickly denied the allegation), and her fiance — the embryos were “safely removed” from her body and transferred to a surrogate mother.
While you digest that, here’s more: Cruise claims that she and Michael Jackson are the biological parents of Tom Cruise’s son, Conner, but that Jackson willingly handed the child over to Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman.
The only thing Cruise has going for her in this wild tale is that she bears a resemblance to MJ’s daughter, Paris. But then again, so does Mark Lester’s daughter, and as family friend and godfather of Jackson’s children, his story actually carries weight.
But unlike Mark Lester, who claims to have come forward to be able to have contact with the children, Cruise is being far more assertive. She filed for termination of guardianship last Friday and wants custody of all three children.
“I want my children. I support the family that they’re a part of, they’re a part of the Jackson family. I am the biological mother, I did not give permission for anyone to give my embryos away. I may have unknowingly given my permission away when I was a minor… becoming a mother, that’s what I want to be, I’m 43 years old, I think it’s time that I at least get the opportunity to be a mother.”
It’s unlikely Cruise will get the DNA tests she’s looking for. Not only is her story impossible, she’s also got a long history of claiming romance with celebrities, including Leo DeCaprio and Tom Cruise.
Hang on, Katherine Jackson, it’s going to be a long and bumpy ride.
