There has been a further twist to the ongoing bizarre tales being spun about the goings in the life of Michael Jackson.
Debbie Rowe now denies that she spoke to any Irish newspaper about the story that Jackson was not the natural father of their children, Prince Michael and Paris.
It is alleged that Rowe claimed that the children were both conceived using anonymous semen bought from a sperm bank.
She allegedly told the Sunday World:
"Michael knows the truth - that he is not the natural father of Prince Michael Jr and Paris. He has to come clean.
I have no information whatsoever about the identity of the semen donor for either child as such (semen) was obtained anonymously from a semen bank under an agreement of confidentiality."
Rowe denies the story, and says that she was in the US with a cold at the time of the interview.
Don't they have phones in the US?
Her lawyer, Iris Finsilver, has added that Rowe would never say anything to risk her visitation rights.
Fair comment, except that if it were proved that Jackson was not the father then presumably Rowe would get custody?
There is a game being played here, and the press and the public are the patsies.
