TITO JACKSON has dismissed reports his brother is not the biological father of his three children - telling doubters to look at the kids' eyes for assurance they are the superstar's offspring.
Since the Thriller legend's death last month (Jun09), there has been mounting speculation the star is not the real father of his kids, Prince Michael, 12, Paris, 11, and seven-year-old Prince Michael II, aka Blanket.
Some reports suggest he asked his longtime skin doctor Arnold Klein to a be a sperm donor and his ex-wife Debbie Rowe to act as a surrogate mother so that he could have the children he always craved.
But Jackson's older brother Tito has slammed the continued rumours, insisting his late sibling is "100 per cent" the father of the three kids - even though they are white.
He tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "They are all his children. Blanket is Michael's, I can tell. Those eyes don't lie. Them eyes are Michael over again. I see a lot of Michael in him."
"Paris and Prince are Michael's children. Yes they are. Just because they look white doesn't mean they are not his. I have an uncle who is married to a white girl and they have three kids. Two of them are white and one is black. When they go to school people don't even know they are brother and sister.
"They are all Michael's children. Prince looks just like my grandfather. There's no question they are Michael's. They are 100 per cent his."
However, despite being convinced Jackson is the biological father of all three of his children, Tito admits he does not know who the biological mother of Blanket is.
He adds, "Nobody knows who his mother is, nobody. That's the million dollar question. When I find out I'll call you!"
