Michael Jackson was so desperate to have a fourth child he begged a British doctor to have a baby for him.
The late pop legend - who was already father to 12-year-old Prince Michael I, 11-year-old Paris and seven-year-old Prince Michael II, known as Blanket - repeatedly asked Susan Etok to carry his child as he was keen to add to his family.
She said: "He was passionate about having this baby and it was flattering. But I was shocked he was trying to involve me. For me, it was never going to happen."
Although Susan, 32, turned down the Michael's requests, she claimed he pestered her for seven months to have his child, with the last time being just weeks before he died.
However, Susan - who first met the Bad singer through a mutual friend 11 years ago - insisted she didn't want anything to do with his plan as she wouldn't want to give up a child.
She told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "I came up with excuses to put him off. I said I'd never give my children away and wanted my child to be raised in the UK not America.
"I even said I wanted them to lead as normal a childhood as possible and didn't want them wearing masks like his children. Nothing I said had an impact."
Susan claimed Michael first raised the idea of fathering a tot with her last October after she complained to him about not being able to find a suitable man.
She said he then told her: "I want to give you children. We should have a baby together."
As well as Susan, Michael was also keen for singer Beyonce Knowles and model Tyra Banks to have his baby.
Susan said: "Michael admired Beyonce and Tyra and said he would love it if they would have a child with him.
"He liked the whole strong, independent woman thing and said they looked beautiful and very motherly."
