Debbie Rowe admitted in an interview after Jacko’s death that she never had sex with him

MICHAEL Jackson’s ex-wife confessed she was the singer’s “thoroughbred” who would be artificially inseminated.

Debbie Rowe, who was married to Jackson from 1996 to 1999, admitted they never had sex and claimed the King of Pop viewed her as his “vessel”.

But she claimed donor sperm was used rather than Michael’s.

Their children Prince Michael Jnr and Paris paternity has often been questioned. Both are light-skinned, fair haired and have blue eyes.

Jackson’s third child Prince Michael II, who is known as Blanket, was born to a surrogate mother. She has never been named.

Speaking to a British newspaper in 2009, Rowe said: “I went to the ‘office’, which is what we called the medical clinic.

“They impregnated me. It’s just like I impregnate my mares for breeding. It was very technical.

“Just like I stick the sperm up my horse, this is what they did to me. I was his thoroughbred.

Rowe, a former nurse, said that she became involved with Jackson while she worked at a dermatology clinic run by the renowned skin specialist Dr Arnold Klein.

This was 1996 and Jacko had just divorced his first wife Lisa Maria Presley.

Rowe said: “ “Michael was divorced, lonely and wanted children. I was the one who said to him, ‘I will have your babies’.

“I offered him my womb — it was a gift. It was something I did to keep him happy.”

Three months after divorcing Presley 38-year-old Michael wed Debbie who was 37, married at an unusual ceremony in Sydney, Australia

Only a few people attended the wedding, which took place at the Sheraton on the Park Hotel in November 13, 1996, while Jackson was on tour for his ‘HIStory’ album.

Strikingly Rowe wore a non-traditional black wedding dress.

At the time she was pregnant with the first of two children she would give to her husband-to-be who after dying in 2009 has been hit with fresh child abuse allegations in a new documentary called Leaving Neverland.

The King of Pop always denied being a paedophile and his estate have slammed the new doc for being biased and one-sided.

At the wedding Jackson’s best man was strangely an eight-year-old boy named Anthony, whom the megastar reportedly called his nephew.

The secrecy surrounding the wedding was so intense it was not confirmed or denied after it happened.

Staff at the Sheraton swore Jackson had not even left his room, the Irish Times reported.

Rowe was a nursing assistant to Beverly Hills dermatologist Dr Arnold Klein.

They had actually first met 15 years before their marriage. He had been having treatment for his skin condition.

It is understood that Rowe consoled Jackson following his split with Presley and the pair became great pals.

Unlike the singer’s last marriage, this one was much more low key — and one that produced children.

Speaking in a 2003 TV special called Michael Jackson: The Footage You Were Never Meant To See, Rowe said: “I did it for him to become a father, not for me to become a mother.

“You earn the title parent. I have done absolutely nothing to earn that title. That is because Michael did all the parenting.

“I didn’t do it to be a mother. I didn’t change diapers. I didn’t get up in the middle of the night, even when I was there, Michael did it all.”

About 14 months later their second child, Paris, was born.

At the time Jackson said of the birth: “I snatched her and just went home with all the placenta and everything all over her.”

Rowe and Jackson ended their marriage in October 1999. Jacko was given full custody of Prince Michael and Paris.

They reportedly split up because Rowe hated being in the public eye.

But when, soon after Jackson’s death, she became engaged to the pop-star’s videographer, she sparked claims that he marriage had been a sham.
