Tito Jackson: "They are Michael's kids'.

Summary: Michael Jackson is the biological father of his three children, the pop star's brother has claimed.

Michael Jackson is the biological father of his three children, the pop star's brother has claimed.

Tito Jackson believes his children - Paris, Prince Michael and Prince Michael II (aka Blanket) - all have a family resemblance.

He said: "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."

The 55-year-old also dismissed suggestions that the children were too pale to be his brother's.

"Just because they look white doesn't mean they are not his. Prince looks just like my grandfather. There's no question they are Michael's," he said.

"They are 100 per cent his...They remind me of me and my brothers when we were growing up."

But he said nobody, including himself, knew the identity of Blanket's mother, describing it as the "million dollar question". He was born to a mystery surrogate mother the singer never met.

Tito said that despite growing up in the glare of the media spotlight, the children are "very, very normal".

The comments came as pictures emerged showing what are believed to be needle puncture marks on the star's ankles and a large wound on his right shin - thought to have been caused by his injection of drugs.

Meanwhile, a magazine has obtained video showing "never-before-seen" footage of Jackson's head catching fire during filming of his 1984 Pepsi advert.

Jackson suffered severe burns after a pyrotechnics accident set his hair and scalp alight.
