*New paparazzi pics of Michael Jackson’s eldest son Prince Michael I are being touted as proof that he is indeed the King of Pop’s biological child.
The three Jackson kids were photographed on the beach during a recent trip to Hawaii and 13-year-old Prince Michael I appears to have white patches of skin under his arms.
Based on the photos alone, at least two British tabloids were the first to speculate that Prince Michael’s white patches are vitiligo, which his famous father has always claimed to have.
Although skeptics believed Michael Jackson was simply bleaching his skin through the years in an attempt to look white, the singer’s autopsy confirmed that he suffered from the hereditary condition, which causes the skin to lose pigment. In previous interviews, Jackson has said the disease was passed down from his father’s side of the family.
Jackson’s ex-wife Debbie Rowe, who gave birth to Prince Michael and his sister Paris, has always claimed she was artificially inseminated by an anonymous donor. There were also rumors that she was only the surrogate, not the biological mother, and that Arnie Klein, her former boss and Jackson’s dermatologist, was the biological father.
