On the 4th anniversary of Michael Jackson's death, his close friend Jason Pfieffer reveals he is only the natural father of one of his three children. Pfieffer confirms Prince and Paris were fathered by British actor Mark Lester.
Michael Jackson revealed months before his death that he only fathered one of his three children, according to a new report. Jackson's youngest child, Blanket, is his natural son whilst British actor Mark Lester (most famous for playing the title role in the musical Oliver) is allegedly the biological father of his two eldest children: Prince and Paris.
According to clinic worker Jason Pfeiffer, giving an interview in the Mirror, Jackson decided on Mark Lester as the sperm donor because "Michael felt Mark was one of his closest friends. He said he was a great actor and very good man".
Furthermore Jackson does not appear to have been without choices in who should father his children as "he had taken several people's sperm and decided on Mark".
Paris Jackson who has found it difficult to come to terms with her father's death, cumulating in her attempted suicide earlier this year, is the daughter of Debbie Rowe and actor Mark Lester, according to Pfeiffer. Her brother is apparently Prince also shares the same biological parents. Blanket is Jackson's natural son with an unknown surrogate.
Michael Jackson, according to actor Jason Pfieffer wished that Rowe have no part in his daughter's life. Other details of their home life have been revealed. Jackson was apparently uncomfortable about his children viewing his performances and attempting to prevent them from accessing the internet and television. Pfieffer says Jackson "was angry when Paris saw Thriller on the net" and that "He hated them having access to the web". He further points out that "His concerns seem to have come true as Paris has suffered such cyber bullying."
Pfieffer has suggested Lester may take a more active role in the children's lives as they have been struggling since their father's death. Lester resides in the UK and has four children of his own.
