In case you don’t trust your own eyes or sense of logic, the Jackson family has basically confirmed that at least one of Michael Jackson’s children did not spring from his seed. According to a TMZ report:

Michael Jackson’s family is pleading with the judge in their wrongful death lawsuit against AEG Live to EXCLUDE any evidence of the paternity of MJ’s 3 kids.

TMZ has obtained legal docs in which Katherine Jackson, Blanket, Paris and Prince argue ... it’s irrelevant for a jury to hear evidence about the conception of the 3 kids. Specifically, they believe AEG has no right to delve into their biological parentage.

Ostensibly, it makes sense that this information is irrelevant to the wrongful death suit, but it is entirely relevant to inquiring minds.

We know that Debbie Rowe, MJ’s one-time wife gave birth to Prince and Paris (or do we?), and that an as-yet-unidentified woman gave birth to Blanket (or do we?). Jackson denounced reports that Prince was conceived via artificial insemination, but claimed that Blanket was. Then again, he’s a Jackson, so who knows what to believe. For all we know, Prince, Paris and Blanket are all the real-life realization of A.I.-style androids sculpted from the Elephant Man’s bones by Bubbles the Chimp.

Just kidding, they’re just kids. It’s fun to think of who their dad might be, though. My guesses are Tom Cruise and Elizabeth Taylor. Blanket might actually be MJ’s, though — he has the same pre-surgical eyes and the have-you-seen-my-childhood deadness in them.

Michael Jackson’s three kids are pictured above standing with the person who has become the most relevant Jackson in current pop culture, La Toya. She hasn’t left the TV airwaves since MJ died and will have her on reality show on OWN starting next month. She is also not his child. Or is she?
