With more pictures emerging of Michael Jackson‘s children, people have increasingly been wondering why they don’t seem to resemble their father. TMZ claims that this is because the late King of Pop was not the sperm donor used to conceive the children via in vitro.
In addition, the site also says that Debbie Rowe was just the surrogate in the process because her eggs weren’t used to conceive the children. This, of course, refers to the two eldest children left behind by the passing of their father, Michael.
However, the Jackson family is reportedly still hoping to maintain contact with Rowe because of her close personal connection with the singer.
A business associate of the family, and a friend of Debbie’s, Marc Schaffel told People, “They had an incredible bond and friendship even prior to the marriage… Debbie was a very good friend to Michael during all those years.”
Despite the connection, however, the Jackson clan remain adamant about their custody claim on the children. Papers filed by Katherine Jackson state that they “have no relationship with their biological mother” as opposed to their “long established relationship” with their grandmother.
Meanwhile, as these pictures show, the memorial commemorating the pop star’s passing continues to grow.
