The Jackson Kids: Starbucks Stop

The Jackson Kids: Starbucks Stop

The children of the late King of Pop Michael JacksonPrince, Paris and Blanket – were seen grabbing some iced drinks at Starbucks in Los Angeles, Calif. on Tuesday (May 15).

Paris, 14, still in her red jersey with shin pads and cleats, cooled down after a soccer game. Prince, 15, wore jeans and a white polo shirt, while long-haired Blanket, 10, wore a green polo shirt and black pants.

Paris is set play the heroine in the fantasy picture Lundon’s Bridge And The Three Keys.

When I was really little my Dad was in the movie Moonwalker, and I knew he could sing really well, but I didn’t know he could act. I saw that and I said, ‘Wow, I want to be just like him,’ ” Paris said.

    Prince and Paris were born using Michael’s sperm and Debbie’s eggs. Prince has the same skin condition his father had. .5 to 1% of the world’s population has vitiligo, therefore it would be a big coincidence for Michael and Prince to not be biologically related. Just because a child has one black parent doesn’t mean they have to come out dark skinned. Michael has a lot of Caucasian ancestry, and then there is Debbie who is white as white can be. Prince and Paris have her chin and jawline. Paris has green eyes from Joe. Prince and Blanket have dark eyes from Michael. Blanket has Michael’s nose, only not as wide, something he probably got from his bio mother.

    In the end, does it matter? I hope you all harp on Katherine Heigl, Sandra Bullock and all the other celebs raising non biological kids. You think that because Michael said he was the bio father and you don’t believe him, that gives you the right to be cruel toward his children? You are all very sad people for talking so horribly about children.

    ooh ooh allow me!
    “oh my god those kids are SOOOO white!”
    “Oh my god Prince looks just like “insert random person other than Michael Jackson”"
    “those kids are SOOO Not Michael Jacksons”
    “those kids are SOOO not biracial!!”
    “what kind of name is BLANKET?!!!!”

    Since these are always the comments whenever these kids are published- I thought I’d start the inevitable stupid commentary….

    for real though- kids are beautiful and happy. l.o.v.e.

      It’s really sad. These kids didn’t ask to be born. They also didn’t ask to be born with the color of skin and the texture of hair that they have. Yet people are constantly commenting on these things and only these things, when the only thing that matters is that they were loved and taken care of and protected by Michael. Nobody else can say they were a dad to these kids. Only Michael was. Besides, the eldest DOES have vitiligo. He’s been spotted twice this month visiting a dermatologist, and several family members have confirmed that he has the condition that Michael had. And the pictures prove it, too.

    Aw, they’re getting so big! I imagine this time of year is really rough on them. Next month will be 3 years since Michael died. :( Paris is looking so grown up, and Blanket has grown a little bit. :) Prince just seems to get taller every time we see a pic of him. LOL!

    Yeah, they are probably for volleyball. Paris plays softball, flag football and volleyball. Pretty sure it’s volleyball season, isn’t it?

    Ashley – Michael is NOT the biological father of these kids as anyone can quite see by looking at them. Debbie Rowe is the mother and they used a surrogate. Not sure about Blanket. I never heard Prince having vitiligo and if he does, then it’s a coincidence not because it’s genetic.

      Were you there at the conception? Were you there at the birth? NO, then shut up. Do you have the DNA test? NO. Michael said he was the bio father, Debbie said he was the bio father, Debbie’s lawyer said he was the bio father, Prince has vitiligo like Michael was confirmed to have had. Paris has green eyes just like Joe, who has white ancestry. Prince, Paris and Blanket are all naturally tanned. So it’s not impossible.

      Prince DOES have vitiligo, and it would be a mighty big coincidence for Michael’s firstborn son to have vitiligo if he’s not the father, since .5 to 1% of the world’s population has the condition. It would also be a mighty big coincidence since he looks just like Samuel, Joe’s father.

      Just because YOU don’t think they are biological doesn’t mean they aren’t.

      And even if they weren’t, why do people have to say EVERY TIME new pix of these kids come out that they aren’t biological Jacksons? They are Jacksons in every way that counts, because Michael raised them from birth. They didn’t choose their dad.

      She is only getting attention because she is MJ “daughter” . What a laugh. Are they going to cast her as a black character? Is she going to start wearing black face to play black characters? What a disgrace. There are so many young actresses out there who have real talent and are better looking than this wannabe. The idea that these children think they have to be in the entertainment industry and they inherited talent from MJ is a joke. By the way, maybe Michael could sing, but he was no actor. He looked pretty foolish trying to act. I wonder how his purchased daughter will fare behind the camera? She has a role because of her last name and nothing else. Entitled kids who walk around with body guards as if they are something special.

        Don’t put daughter in quotes. She was his legal daughter, so no need for that. And Willow Smith is only famous because of who her dad is. Kate Hudson is only famous because of who her mom is. Lots of celebrities out there would not be famous if it weren’t for who their parents are, so you can’t just single out Michael Jackson’s children.

        The reason those kids need bodyguards is because the paparazzi are constantly trailing them, and they are the children of a superstar. So stop trying to pick on these kids for something THEY can’t help.

      Actually, there are plenty of people out there who aren’t racist and who aren’t ignorant to how genetics work in mysterious ways. There are plenty of people who understand that having Caucasian heritage on both the mother and the father’s side CAN result in lighter-skinned children. There are also people out there who use scientific evidence, such as a child having the same rare skin condition as his father to conclude that he likely inherited such a condition from his father.

      Not all biracial children have to come out with dark skin and curly hair. But for the record, all three of those children are about 2 shades darker when standing next to actual white children, and Paris’ hair is very curly, she just straightens it.

      So what? There’s more to genetics than just skin color. One of my cousins has two biracial girls who look white. I mean, they are about Paris and Prince’s complexion with straight light brown-blondish hair. One has green eyes and freckles too. Their mother is black and she certainly gave birth to them. It happens. I’m so sick of people saying that skin color determines everything.

      Look past color and look at FEATURES. There are plenty of comparison pics that make it seem plausible that the kids are biological Jacksons. If anything, I’d be more swayed by the fact that Michael seemed to hate the way he looked so why would he pass his genes on. Regardless, none of us here really know the truth but I can’t stand this “they look white” nonsense.

      That’s because they aren’t Jacksons. The first two children have Arnie Klein as their father. It is obvious by looking at them. They resemble him. It is a slap in the face to the black community who supported MJ and the Jacksons from the start. He did not even want black children like himself or his millions of black fans. Shame.

        Actually, you’re wrong. Arnold Klein said “to the best of my knowledge” he’s not the father, and he claims he donated sperm at one time, but he didn’t particularly say it was to Michael. Prince has vitiligo. So did Michael. The chances of that happening are pretty slim if they’re not biologically related.

    Paris does not have blue eyes. Google it. Thank you very much.

    I’ve seen plenty of biracial children with blue or green eyes. So you have no point.

      Plenty of half-black kids with blue or green eyes? Really?
      Can you give some examples?
      I think this is extremely rare.
      Paris has blue eyes in most pics.
      Her fan want to believe she has green eyes as this is more ‘special’.
      Anyway her eyes often look so weird and unnatural, I believe these must be contact lenses.

        It is not “extremely rare”. Do you know any mixed kids? In my family alone, there are 5 biracial kids. Three of them have blue or green eyes. Brown eyes are dominant, yes, but it is not by any means rare for mixed kids to have light eyes. Seriously, just look up pictures.

        She has green eyes! Google baby pictures of her. Google the OK magazine photos of her. Her eyes are green green green, the same shade as Joe’s.

        The guy that plays Jackson Avery on Grey’s Anatomy has green eyes. His mother is Swedish and his father is black.

        James Earl Jones has blue eyes.

        One or two of Marlon Jackson’s grandchildren (either Noah or Sophia or both) have bluish eyes.

        Do a google search of biracial blue eyes, and you’ll see plenty of examples. Her eyes, from around the age of 2, have been that same shade of green.

    IF these children were not Michael’s I cannot believe that someone in the family wouldn’t be yelling to the heavens in order to prevent them from collecting. Even in the best of families someone wants a bigger piece of the pie. As no one in the family has tried to discredit these children, I’m pretty certain they belong to him.

      Are you really this naive? Even if they weren’t created with his sperm, they’re still his kids. No one in his family has any grounds to keep them from inheriting from him.

      Michael didn’t owe anybody any explanation. Ever consider that he told Bashir two different things as a way of saying “it’s none of your business who the mom is?” He did say that his sperm cells were used in the conception of all three kids. Debbie Rowe has confirmed that he’s the bio father of Prince and Paris, and she’s never said otherwise.

      Reply
    • Ashley

      Go back and watch the video again. When Bashir asks if Michael would ever have a child with a black woman, he says “of course.” I don’t know what Blanket’s mom looks like, but I do know that Michael was very much into black women. Diana Ross was one of them. He thought she was beautiful. If you’re still not convinced, the collection of porn they found in his bedroom featured plenty of black women. Just because he married two white women and because he had a skin condition does not mean he hated his blackness or hated black people.

      Mark Lester isn’t that child’s father. The time when Paris was born, he and Michael weren’t even in each other’s lives. And Paris looks nothing like Mark or his daughter. There are photos of Paris and Prince with Mark’s eldest daughter in 2009, and they are about 3 shades darker than her.

      Paris father is Arnie Klein, not Mark Lester. She has his smile, and the shape of the jaw, also the nasolabial fold. She looks like every other little Jewish girl on Long Island, her features are very common among the Ashkanazi.

      Blanket looks so different than Michael ever did. There are zero common facial features there.

    Prince has no such birth mark, unless it showed up on him as a teenager. When he was 9 months old, he was photographed in his high chair without a shirt on, no birth mark. The spots on his arms and neck showed up when he was a small child, maybe around 5 or 6. Then his hands started to become affected. Then in 2010 the large white patch on his arm showed up, and by the end of 2010, it had obviously spread, which was evident in the Oprah interview. The splotches on his fingers have spread since then, too. I guess his birthmark is just traveling, huh?

    Blanket´s mother is half italian half swedish. And there is a reason why Michael dated white girls and why the woman he had in his life the last decade is white. It has nothing to do with the color, it has to do with attitude and who is easier to live with, according to him.

    After really taking a good look at the youngest kid, I don’t think he looks anything like Michael Jackson. The only thing they have in common is they both have large dark eyes, the color which the majority of the earth’s inhabitants have. Their eye shapes are not similar at all. MJ had eyes at the sides of his head, I never though he was a cute kid. Blanket is more attractive, but just sort of ordinary. He does have nice hair, but again, this type of hair is common in many parts of the world, it is nothing special. If anything, it probably gets notice since he is a boy. Boys can grow hair as well as girls can, so it is not that extraordinary.
    In addition to his features, I think it is highly unlikely that MJ could have a kid with light skin and such straight silky hair, especially since he lied and said it was with a black woman. It happens, yes, but when you look at the older white children, the odds are even less. What a sad excuse for a man. He was a liar and pathetic. An all around loser. All of that money did not make him happy. The fool is in the grave, he just got his just desserts from his stupidity. He thought he was above everyone else and got exactly what he was asking for. No sympathies.

      You are cruel and heartless. The man DIED and left behind three children who could easily read the horrible crap you say.

      Michael didn’t owe ANYBODY any explanations about his children. His eldest has vitiligo, for crying out loud. That right there is more than enough proof for me. The youngest DOES look like him. Same profile, same nose, same eyes, same smile, etc. Paris is just a young La Toya all over. She has her father’s eye shape, his cheekbones, his smile, and the rest is Debbie and La Toya.

      Calling him a loser for what? Because YOU think he lied? He had the greatest selling album of all time, raised three pretty terrific, mature-seeming children who think the world of him, and he continues to earn millions of dollars a year to this day, and he’s been gone almost 3 years. He didn’t get his just desserts. He was killed by an incompetent physician after being desperate for sleep and having been stressed out and an insomniac for decades.

    I know alot of people who say they aren’t MJ’s kids. Even if they aren’t biologically his children he raised them so that makes them his children in every way that counts. If that’s how some people look at it though, does that mean Brad and Angie only have 3 kids? That Katherine heigl and Josh Kelley don’t have any at all? or Sandra Bullock? I’ve seen so many people on here mad that CBS still uses the word adopted infront of some of the children’s names, like Naleigh. Even if they didn’t come from his sperm doesn’t make him any less of a dad. And usually when you think of a bi-racial child you think of someone with the same skintone of Nahla or so forth but one of my best friends had a white mom and a black dad who was about the same color that MJ originally was( I really hope that didn’t come off as racist) and he had Paris’ skintone. I don’t know how to explain it. He had a beautiful complexion and I can seem the same tones in the Jackson kids. My friend had siblings and the older one looked more like Blanket but him and his older brother had Paris’ skintone. I understand why there would be doubt, I mean my friend’s dad even had a dna test done (yes, they were his) so it is possible.

    Take a look at genetics in general. How many people have looked at picture from generations back and seen someone they looked like? Traits get passed down different with each family.

    I’m not a big MJ fan. Don’t get me wrong, I liked some of his music. But I do think he loved his kids with all his heart. If they are his ( which I think they are) he loved them dearly, and if they aren’t his he still loved them dearly. Shouldn’t that count for something?

    “I hope you all harp on Katherine Heigl, Sandra Bullock and all the other celebs raising non biological kids” – seriously, Ashley? Has anyone of those you’ve mentioned ever claimed their children are biologically theirs? THAT is what bugs people here. Parents are those who raised not those who gave birth, no one doubts it. And if Jackson admitted that the kids are not biologically his, no one would start these fights.
