Christine Leroux, a woman who claims to be a former lover of Michael Jackson, has filed a petition for appointment of guardianship of Prince, Paris and Blanket on the grounds that she is the real mother of Jackson's three children.
In the paperwork filed September 4, Leroux claims her relationship began with Jackson when the two met in elementary school as children, and continued into adulthood when the two allegedly became intimate. According to Leroux, her family was so against their romance that she and Jackson were forced to meet in secret and raise their children by surrogate.
"Michael used my eggs to create Paris, Prince and Blanket with the surrogate mothers he chose," she claims in her statement. "I named Paris myself and 'Blanket' was my idea for a good nickname for my youngest son."
Maintaining that she fears for the safety and well-being of her children under Katherine Jackson and/or Debbie Rowe's care, especially after Paris' recent suicide attempt, Leroux is asking that they be remanded to her so that she can "establish a relationship," "monitor their religious and academic education" as well as practice her own disciplinary techniques.
In her statement, Leroux also writes that she is open to both DNA and lie-detector testing to substantiate her claims.
