Jackson Kids Paternity Request

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Child Stars, Legal Issues,

Michael Jackson's childrenMichael Jackson's family has demanded that paternity evidence relating to his children be dropped from a lawsuit.

The late singer's mother Katherine Jackson - who acts as a co-legal guardian for his children Prince Michael, 17, Paris, 15 and Blanket, 10, - has filed a motion asking the judge presiding over the court case to exclude any evidence relating to their paternity.

According to legal documents, obtained by gossip website TMZ.com, Katherine claims that the jury does not need to know anything about her grandchildren's biological parentage. Budding actor and TV presenter Prince Michael and his sister Paris are believed to be the children of their father's ex-wife Debbie Rowe, while Blanket is said to have been born via a surrogate mother.

The family is suing AEG Live - who sponsored Michael's This Is It tour - for the alleged negligent hiring and supervision of Dr. Conrad Murray, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for his role in Michael's death.
