The Michael Jackson wrongful death trial now going on has reignited all the rumors about who the biological father of Michael’s kids is. Former child star Mark Lester (“Oliver”) was one of Michael’s friends who donated sperm when Michael asked for it and he thinks HE is their father. Other potential “fathers” include Marlon Brando and Macaulay Culkin, and our pick, Dr Arnie Klein. There may be more donors out there who won’t talk about it. Michael figured with so many possibilities no one would ever figure out who the real father is. We wonder if someday his kids will demand DNA tests to clear this up.
Leave it to LaToya Jackson to figure out a way to make money from Michael Jackson’s kids. While much of the family has been banned from the Calabasas home where Prince, 16, Paris, 15, and Blanket , 10, live with Michael’s mother, LaToya, 56, has maintained a relationship. According to The Daily Mail, she knew the children had show business aspirations so she started a talent agency called Ja-Tail Enterprises, convinced them to sign up, and now manages them. And they’re not complaining- after he signed, Prince landed his job on E.T., and Paris is set to film a movie next summer. LaToya gets 15% of their take. So far, the kids are LaToya’s only clients, but you can visit her ambitious website by clicking here.
La Toya Jackson knows how to get top dollar for personal appearance gigs – bring Michael’s kids along for the ride! She schlepped Prince, Paris, and Blanket to Beverly Hills for the Mr Pink Ginseng Drink party (whatever THAT is) and they created quite a stir. La Toya’s bound to get a lot of party invites in the future. Paris seems to enjoy the limelight while Blanket, as usual, looks a bit annoyed…
We found it very strange that Michael Jackson’s kids were invited to have their hand and footprints immortalized in cement at a ceremony outside Grauman’s Chinese Theater. This is the first time we’ve heard of RELATIVES substituting for a deceased star. Prince, 14, Paris, 13, and Blanket, 9, seemed quite happy to do it, but it doesn’t seem right. First of all, Michael was a singer – not a movie star – and a star on Hollywood Blvd seems more appropriate. Also, how weird would it be if Paul Newman or John Wayne’s CHILDREN left their prints instead of the stars themselves?

If Michael Jackson were still alive, where would his kids Paris, Prince, and Blanket, be today? Would they still be walking around with veils on their heads, home schooled, and constantly moving from place to place? Now they’re going to private school and making friends, acting in plays, and participating in after school sports. They seem to be leading far more normal lives, and Prince, 14, appears to have a little girlfriend named Nikki Berger, whom he took to the movies.

Michael Jackson’s kids Paris, Prince, and Blanket took a break from school and spent the weekend at the Palms in Las Vegas where Uncle Jermaine was performing at the Planet Hollywood Hotel. Jermaine’s sons Jaffar and Jermajesty and several bodyguards accompanied them. Paris and Prince are actually going to school for the first time in their lives and reportedly love it. Right now they both have security guards that follow them wherever they go on campus at the $30,000 a year Buckley school in Sherman Oaks. The family lawyer says they are adapting so well at Buckley that the guards may soon become unnecessary.

Great news for Michael Jackson’s three kids. They are FINALLY going to be allowed to go to school with other children their own age. Since Michael died last summer, Prince, 13, Paris, 12, and 8 year old Blanket have been cloistered at Michael’s mother Katherine’s home. She thought about sending them to school, but ended up having them home-schooled this past year. Although they have their cousins to play with, Katherine has observed that they have no friends and lead solitary lives. In September, for the first times in their lives, the three children will attend a private school and be exposed to a whole new and wonderful world. Good for them.
Awhile back, a friend of ours in the media who has been acquainted with the Jackson family for a long time told us that Michael Jackson’s kids would be better off NOT placed with the family. “That’s the worst thing that could happen to them!” she said. “All they talk about is MONEY- ways to access Michael’s money and schemes to make more money off his name.” It looks like our source was right. The three kids spent Thanksgiving day frolicking in a $25,000 suite at The Palms in Las Vegas rather than a family dinner. We wonder how they’ll spend Christmas.
We can’t help but notice that Michael Jackson’s kids are growing up fast and appear to be thriving. They went to the California Science Center and IMAX theater with a group of their cousins and looked lively and happy. Paris,11 danced around and Prince,12, looks like he’s growing up into a handsome teen. The group also watched an IMAX movie and it wasn’t necessary to close the place down or hire extra security like it was when they had outings with Michael. And of course the best part was – no masks!
In February 2007, we wrote:
“We can’t help but notice that those new pictures from TMZ revealing Michael Jackson’s kids back up our theory about who the REAL father is. It’s been obvious since day one that these kids don’t share Michael’s genes. Maybe that’s one reason he keeps them wrapped in burkas. WE remember the days when Michael was absolutely besotted with Macaulay Culkin – after he saw Home Alone. They became inseparable. Michael didn’t have much in common with Mac after he grew up, but they remained friends. When Michael talked Debbie Rowe into having children for him, WE theorize that he also talked young and impulsive Mac into donating the sperm so he could have his own set of Home Alone children. There IS an eerie resemblance.”
At the time this was published at JCH, TMZ had a photo of Paris and Prince Michael looking a lot like young Macaulay Culkin - who we‘ve suspected was sperm donor since Paris’s birth. Since child actor Mark Lester willingly donated sperm for Michael, is it so far-fetched to believe that Mac would do him the same favor? Culkin has firmly denied being the father of Blanket, but what about the OTHER two kids?
