Paris' Alleged Baby Daddy -- 'Nothing Malicious'

8/10/2009 11:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paris' Alleged Baby Daddy -- 'Nothing Malicious'We just got off the phone with Mark Lester, the man who claims he's not only the godfather to Michael Jackson's three kids -- he may also be Paris' baby daddy, thanks to a sperm donation.

Lester seemed agitated when he spoke with News of the World, expressing concern for Jackson's three kids and complaining he hasn't seen them.

We asked if he might go to court to try and force the issue. His answer -- there's "absolutely nothing malicious" about his intentions and it's "highly unlikely" he'll go to court.

As for whether the Jackson family has shut him out of the kids' lives ... Lester wouldn't answer.

Katherine Jackson
's lawyer, Londell McMillan, passes this off as a "genetic lottery attempt."

Michael Jackson was the only man in the world who had to say "these kids are MY children" - others always say "this child is NOT mine"!.
That`s horrible! If MJ would be alive nobody would care about this! Because, these three children ARE his children, he was their father who cared for them and they loved him! The kids lost their DADDY that`s hard enough to go through!

Just when the children get settled in with their grandmother - this guy has to come forward. MJ surely used bad judgement when choosing his so-called friends.

It is time for the hangers on to move on - the party is over.

Look at this video......Thede kids have one black parent and one white parent and look what they look like.....They look all white. Quincy Jones daughter looks all white(she's in the video) why can we believe that she is Quincy Jones daughter but some can't believe that Prince,Paris and Blanket are Michael's.

The jacksons have a kind of mafia management, i mean, the matriarch is intouchable, the patriach does what he wants with his kids for money or power, the clan must be sticked together but each of the relatives can fight one another some times and most of all, they cut every relationship which may insecure the family and overall the family money or cash cow.
Lester, as Klein, giving sperm or not (this is NOT the real issue, in fact), wants to maintain a former bond, and make sure the kids have a normal life, the life they had before MJ's death... i don't believe he wants any money.
His way of coming out may have been not so well choosed, but he wanted to be heard... it's not so badly made.

I think it is so terribly sad what these children are having to go through. I can't imagine the things going through their minds and how all of this will end up effecting them. I pray they will be okay processing all of this.

As far as the DNA is concerned I'd think the children could decide, when they are 18 or older, wether or not they want a DNA test.

It is not any of our business about the DNA. There parentage shouldn't be picked apart on some blog! These are children, for crying out loud!
How would anyone that's comparing these children to whomever, feel about it, if they were some of your family members?

Sperm does not make a parent!!

They are Michael's children. PERIOD!

When and if the children decide when they are older that they wish to know their biological parentage, they can have whatever testing done to determine that. Michael was the father they knew and loved. People use donor sperm every,damn, day to procreate, and you don't see any of the donors jumping up claiming they could be the biological parent. Most donors actually sign paperwork at the clinic that they have no legal grounds to stake claim to any child that may result from said donation. All of this is simply because this is Michael Jackson. Even in his death everyone has to try to grab a piece of him.

RIP MJ

Are You Serious    

Ya well, Michael also said in one interview he was close friends with Blanket's mother and was protecting her from the media then he turns around and say he doesn't know who she is and she doesn't know him. He also said he only had two cosmetic surgeries. And Debbie is now a reliable source for you all. I don't think Michael is the biological father of any of those kids. I think Arnold Klein might be and I have a feeling Blanket and Omer might share parents, TMZ should interview Paul Gohranson, ex lover of Arnold Klein, and call him on what he has to say about the biological parents.
In any event, if Michael was not the bio. father and did not leave true paternity behind, then I actually blame him for the mess these kids are in now., especially for leaving those kids in the hands of the family that ruined him emotionally. What the hell was he thinking? Only thing intelligent in this mess was hiring these kids a psychologist.

Quincy Jones family does look bi racial. They are bright colored and not dark skinned and they have Daddys eyes. Prince & Paris have no black in them.

Hey Mark
If you read TMZ or gossip boards don't get discouraged. It's not what the world thinks- only the crazy fans who think it's their job to keep Jackson on the throne.
The real world doesn't live in their computer and they know how to think these things through.

Its not about money or fame, it's about keeping the kdis safe and not JW's.

Paris' Baby Daddy? Why does TMZ try to be so cool and funny using terms like that? Paris doesn't have a baby, making it impossible for her to have a "Baby Daddy." whoever titled this article is an idiot.
