Michael Jackson was iconic for his stage presence and dancing skills. His songs broke records and made him the most famous man in the world before his death. Jackson was married twice – to Lisa Marie Presley and then to Debbie Rowe, but did the singer have any children?
The Bad singer had two wives in his lifetime, the first of which was Elvis’ daughter Lisa Marie Presley.
Lisa Marie was with the singer for a year-and-a-half before their divorce was finalised, after which Jackson married Debbie Rowe, a dermatology nurse, while he was on tour in Sydney, Australia.
The pair had their first child very quickly, with Rowe giving birth to Michael Joseph Jackson Jr, who is commonly known as Prince and was born on February 13, 1997.
The pair also had a second child, Paris-Michael Katherine Jackson, who was born on April 3, 1998.
