Michael Jackson is reportedly a dad again
Michael Jackson may not be having the easiest summer — his record flopped, his campaign against his record label has been a public relations disaster, and he’s being sued for millions by a former manager — but he’s had one bundle of joy drop into his life recently: a new son. So reports People magazine, which says Jackson has been squiring around a six-month old baby. A source tells the magazine that Jackson introduced the tot, saying ”This is my third child.”
The King of Pop, whose son Prince Michael Jackson is 5 and whose daughter Paris Michael Jackson is 3, has reportedly named the infant Prince Michael II and nicknamed him ”No. 3.” Since sources tell People the child was conceived ”the natural way,” who is his mother? Some speculate that it’s ex-wife Debbie Rowe, the mother of Jackson’s other two children, noting that the singer and the former dermatologist’s aide have remained on good terms since their three-year marriage ended in 1999.
People says he took all three members of his little dynasty backstage at Siegfried & Roy’s show in Las Vegas on July 30. TV producer Gary Pudney, a longtime friend of Jackson’s, tells the magazine that the Gloved One ”is extremely impressive as a father. He had a very lonely childhood. His motivation in having children is partly because of that but mainly because he loves them.”
