Michael was the seventh of nine children (Janet and Randy are younger). They grew up in a two-bedroom house in Gary, Indiana. The six boys slept in one room, while the three girls shared the other with the parents, Joe and Katherine. Here are the siblings, in order of birth: Rebbie, Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, La Toya, Marlon, Michael, Randy and Janet.
He was married twice, first to Elvis Presley's daughter Lisa Marie from 1994-1996, then to Debbie Rowe, who worked at his dermatologist's office, from 1996-1999. Lisa Marie explained, "We probably connected because our lives were different to most other people." She said that their marriage fell apart when it became clear that he wanted her to be part of his public life, whereas she shied away from the spotlight.
He had two children from his marriage to Debbie Rowe: Prince Michael Joseph Jackson Jr. and Paris Michael Katherine Jackson. Macaulay Culkin is their godfather. His third son, Prince Michael Joseph Jackson II (nicknamed "Blanket), was born to a surrogate mother.
