Los Angeles, Calif.-with all the rumors questioning the authenticity of Michael Jackson and Debbie Rowe being the true biological parents of kids Prince Michael and Paris, Rowe’s lawyer speaks in behalf of her client’s side.
“We refuse to be drawn into addressing the various rumors and speculation swirling in the media. The vast majority of what is out there is untrue,” says Marta Almli, Rowe’s lawyer, in a released statement.
“Particularly hurtful and insidious is the most recent rumor-which is entirely false- concerning the maternity of the children,” she continued. “Ms. Rowe is the biological mother of the two oldest children.”
TMZ.com has previously reported that Jackson’s ex-wife is not the biological mother of Prince Michael, 12, and Paris, 11. The site also claims that a number of sources have said that all the King of Pop’s children were conceived in vitro, by means of a sperm donor and another woman’s eggs via surrogate, not Rowe’s.
US Weekly meanwhile reported that according to various sources, Dr. Arnold Klein, Jackson’s dermatologist and at the same time Rowe’s former boss, is the true father to Prince Michael and Paris.
A rep for Dr. Klein immediately issued a statement regarding the issue.
“Dr. Klein is aware of media reports connecting him to Michael Jackson,” says the statement. “Because of patient confidentiality Dr. Klein will make no statement on any reports or allegations.”
“Out of respect for his patients and adherence to federal HIPAA regulations, Dr. Klein asks that the media not contact his patients nor interfere with their medical treatments. Like millions of Michael’s fans around the world, Dr. Klein is saddened by Michael’s death and extends his condolences to Michael’s family.”
