The lyrics to "Billie Jean" may have been prophetic.

According to TMZ, Michael Jackson's family is asking the judge in the wrongful-death lawsuit against concert promoter AEG Live to exclude any evidence of the paternity of MJ's three kids.

In legal docs in the $40 billion(!) lawsuit, the King of Pop's mom, Katherine, argues that the jury has no need to hear about how 16-year-old Michael Joseph Jackson Jr. (aka Prince), 14-year-old Paris-Michael Katherine Jackson (aka Paris) and 10-year-old Prince Michael Jackson II (aka Prince II, aka Blanket) came to exist.

Obviously, this raises the strong possibility that Michael isn't his kids' bio-dad. So who is?

Considering that two of them share a name with another pop star, and that this pop star delved into the Jackson catalog twice in his recent show at South by Southwest, we're gonna put on our Maury Povich masks and say: Prince, you are the father!

Quick Takes

Maybe it's the way he laughs at his own jokes. "Game of Thrones" star Emilia Clarke, 25, has split from Oscar host Seth Macfarlane, 39.
