Michael´s biological kids
Q: Can a couple sire a baby that is significantly darker or lighter than either individual?- A curious adult from North Carolina
A: The short answer is, yes! A couple can have a baby with a skin color that isn’t between their own. The long answer, though, is much more interesting.
The long answer has to do with the parts of your DNA that give specific instructions for one small part of you. In other words, your genes.
It turns out that there isn’t just one or even a few genes involved in skin color. There are hundreds of different stretches of DNA all working together that decide your skin color. Click here for Understanding genetics
Rowe has been quick to try to rebut or silence false reports. The lawsuit states that her attorneys got News of the World to remove a story based on assertions made by White. Rowe’s attorney then also demanded a retraction from the New York Post after the paper ran a story claiming she had accepted a payout to drop her custody bid. Debbie successfully sued the woman who had been selling these false stories for 270,000.

Prince inherited Michael´s vitiligo:
Prince´s Vitiligo was confirmed by Michael's sister La Toya, brother Jermaine, make-up artist Karen Faye, and after seeing the photos also by specialists.
“Vitiligo is on my father’s side and Prince has it, too – on his arms and chest."
La Toya, Michael´s sister, in Telegraph, 17 Nov 2009
"Yes. Prince has vitiligo."
Karen Faye on her Facebook, November 2009
Howard Stern: “Did he father those kids?”
Rabbi Boteach: “Of course. Prince looks like his father. He has Michael’s eyes, the same blotches on his skin.”

“It’s pretty clear that this is probably vitiligo.”
New York dermatologist Brian Bonanni studied several photographs of Prince Michael for INSIDE EDITION, 28th June 2010
“That looks like vitiligo,” said Dr. Raymond Boissy, professor of Dermatology at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine and president of the National Vitiligo Foundation after seeing the vacation photos (above). Though he said he cannot provide a diagnosis without examining Prince Michael directly, Boissy said “there are very few other dermatology issues that would render that spot so white.”
"In many cases, the appearance of de-pigmented lesions alone, especially in regions like the underarm, groin, and elbows, is sufficient evidence to diagnose vitiligo," says Caroline Le Poole, an associate professor of pathology at Loyola University who studies vitiligo.
