The lingering questions of just who's the daddy of Michael Jackson's three children didn't exactly get answered today when Dr. Arnold Klein, one of the buzzed-about potential papas, appeared on Good Morning America and Larry King Live.
"I can't say anything about it, but to the best of my knowledge, I am not the father of these children," he told Diane Sawyer. "I can't answer it in any other way. I don't want to feed any of this insanity that is going around."
He took a similar route with Larry King, telling the CNN host, "I still can't absolutely answer that one way or another...The best, to my knowledge, I'm not the father."
Klein did admit to King that he donated sperm at one point—to a sperm bank, and not to Jackson, he said adamantly. And as far as he knows, Jackson and ex-wife Debbie Rowe (Klein's former assistant) consummated their marriage.
What he would say about the three children, two of whom are Rowe's, simply reiterated a message that was driven home yesterday during daughter Paris' impromptu speech.
"I will tell you one thing: These are brilliant children and I want them in no way to be harmed," he told Sawyer. "These are great, wonderful, fabulous children who he loved deeply."
