Michael Jackson - Jackson kids paternity request

Michael Jackson's family has demanded that paternity evidence relating to his children be dropped from a lawsuit.

The late singer's mother Katherine Jackson - who acts as a co-legal guardian for his children Prince Michael, 17, Paris, 15 and Blanket, 10, - has filed a motion asking the judge presiding over the court case to exclude any evidence relating to their paternity.

According to legal documents, obtained by gossip website TMZ.com, Katherine claims that the jury does not need to know anything about her grandchildren's biological parentage.

Budding actor and TV presenter Prince Michael and his sister Paris are believed to be the children of their father's ex-wife Debbie Rowe, while Blanket is said to have been born via a surrogate mother.

The family is suing AEG Live - who sponsored Michael's ''This Is It'' tour - for the alleged negligent hiring and supervision of Dr. Conrad Murray, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for his role in Michael's death.

The 82-year-old Jackson family matriarch has also asked the judge exclude any mention of the Michael's child molestation claims as well as any mention of her other children's financial problems.

The family is reportedly worried that AEG might try to argue that the real reason the family are pursing them in the reported $40 billion lawsuit is money.

A judge has not yet ruled on the motions.

The 'Thriller' hitmaker died in June 2009 after being administered a lethal dose of Propofol by Murray.

The trial is set to begin on April 2.

AEG is trying to distort things. The ones who are being sued in this trial are not the Jackson Family but AEG! Thus, it is not the Jackson Family but AEG the ones who have to be answering ALL the questions here! AEG executives are responsible for the death of Michael Jackson and so, they are the ones who have to stand trial, be asked questions, and the sooner be sentenced with the maximum penalty!!!

AEG knows they worked MJ literally to death so they could make megabucks from This is It. They also know they hired Murray to 'TAKE CARE" of MJ because they knew at his age they were overworking him and Murray would abide by their orders, that's why he won't help in the lawsuit. Whether MJ's sperm was used or if he adopted them they were his children and it's not necessary to prove proof to AEG. Did they question this before. This lawsuit is to show how AEG overworking of MJ and the hiring of Murray contributed to MJ's death. It's not about the paternity of the kids or any past molestation charges or how much money the other Jackson family members make. I think people have always salivated wanting to know whether the Jackson kids are the biological children of Michael Jackson and if it was a big deal and important enough that MJ felt it was necessary to tell us then he would have. I hope it stays that way because frankly it's nobody's business!

Them kids are Michael's 100% what does that have to do with Michael's murder? @zen2580 no it's not needed, it has nothing to do with the fact that Michael was murdered.
