According to TMZ, a DNA test conducted today proves that there is a 99.9% chance that 31-year-old Brandon Howard is indeed Michael Jackson’s son! Check out the story and some video footage below of Michael Jackson’s possible Jr. below…..
Organizers of an off-the-wall DNA test claimed Thursday it proved Michael Jackson is the biological father of aspiring singer Brandon Howard — but a lawyer for the late King of Pop’s estate is crying foul.
The alleged genetic match was announced at a bizarre press conference in Beverly Hills that was organized by shipping heir Alki David and streamed live on his FilmOn.com website.
Howard, who is said to be the baby referenced in Jackson’s 1982 hit “Billie Jean,” wasn’t present for the hyped announcement but confirmed in a Facebook post that he gave a DNA sample for the test.
Dr. Joseph Goodman, a Beverly Hills dental surgeon, revealed the results, and claimed he obtained a sample of Jackson’s DNA from a dental device that had belonged to the “Thriller” singer and was purchased by Goodman at auction.
Goodman opened an envelope and pulled from it the results of the test, which indicated that the “probability” of The Gloved One being a parental match was “99.9 percent.”
“I think we have the proof,” Goodman declared as David listened a few feet away.
The alleged paperwork, shown to some attendees at the press conference, did not list the names of the test subjects nor did it name the lab that performed the analysis, but David told viewers such tests are typically done anonymously and that other information was redacted as a security safeguard.
“I’m sure that there will be doubters and there will be haters and there will be those who create, build a controversy, but it is what it is,” David said.
Jackson estate lawyer Howard Weitzman told didn’t see things that way, however.
“It sounds like a fraud to me,” Weitzman told the Daily News later Thursday.
“I’ve never heard of the man,” Weitzman said, referring to Howard. “He’s never made any claims with the estate or with any recognized tribunal that I’m aware of.”
Attempts to reach Howard directly were not immediately successful.
Howard, who reportedly does not have a birth certificate, was born in 1981, according to David, and has long been rumored to be the child referenced by Jackson in “Billie Jean” by the line: “The kid is not my son.”
Howard’s mom is pop singer Miki Howard, 53, who reportedly was repped by Jackson family patriarch Joe Jackson in the 80s and appeared in the 1993 movie “Poetic Justice” with Janet Jackson.
Brandon Howard has admitted Jackson is a big inspiration for his work, but he claimed Thursday he had nothing to do with David’s press conference.
“I’ve never self-proclaimed to be Michael Jackson’s son,” he said in a Facebook video. “I’m definitely not suing the estate. I’m taken care of very well. And also, I make my own cash, okay?”
Former child actor Corey Feldman also had a role in Thursday’s “circus,” sitting beside David during the online reveal.
Feldman was friends with Jackson during the iconic singer’s heyday and said he’s now close to Howard. He said Howard agreed to the test to get “peace of mind.”
“That’s why he did this in the first place. It wasn’t for this circus,” Feldman said. “His intention was to keep it for himself, his own personal knowledge.”
Feldman, 42, said he believes Howard is Jackson’s son.
“Personally, I do, because I’ve never met two people who were more alike in my life,” Feldman said. – Via DailyNews
