MJ's Ex-Bodyguard -- Blanket Might Be My Son

9/27/2010 9:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

One of Michael Jackson's ex-bodyguards has come out with a video statement, claiming he has reason to believe that Blanket is his biological son -- a fact that, he says, MJ even confirmed himself.

0927_feddes_launch2
29-year-old Matthew Fiddes made the statement after court docs allegedly leaked, describing how he donated sperm to MJ back in 2001-- sperm that may have been used to conceive Blanket Jackson ... who was born in '02.

0927_Blanket_getty_sm_02Despite several coincidences -- the 2001 sperm donation, the resemblance -- Fiddes claims he's still not 100% sure of his paternity ... telling TMZ, "As far as I'm concerned, Michael Jackson is the father."

As for custody -- Matt tells us, "If anything happened to Mrs. Jackson, I think Tito Jackson and his sons would be best suited to look after Michael's children." He adds, "I don't want to create a war with the Jacksons again about something so private."

Jeez, how many dad can one kid have. Wasn't Miko Brando meant to be his dad at one stage, then it was Omer Bhatti, then Al Malnik & now this guy? MJ said he was the Dad too so that makes 5 people! Please give these kids a break.

Miko,and Omer never made any claims about being the father,that was the tabloids/media spreading more BS,but I see what you are saying,how can so many different men the be biological father of the same children,arine klein and mark lester claimed to be the fathers of Prince and Paris. MJ said he was the biological dad,and he is.Blanket is MJs twin,he looks NOTHING like this guy.

Fiddes, Bashir, and Geller. Quite probably the three most despised men in Britain.

A five year old child could 'read' any of these charecters in a second, and realise they were the lowest form of human life. I wonder why MJ even associated with them?

Fiddes was the guy who tried to establish himself as the 'middle man' when the Jacksons made a TV programme about buying a house in England.
He tried to convince the viewers that he was a family friend rather than simply an employee, but failed miserably.

The man is s***. He ended up falling out with the family because he was giving information to reporters behind their backs.

Best friends with Michael? My arse he was!
The man is a disgusting waste of space. I expect this low life will be trying to milk the MJ gravy train for some years to come.

I think Fiddes is talking nonsense.
Even if the kids are not biologically MJs, I doubt if anyone would see Fiddes as 'donor material'.
Also, the autopsy revealed that MJ had viable, active sperm. So why would he prefer the genes from this low life slug to his own?

Also, remember that MJ was well known for having confidentiallity agreements with all his employees. If he had made such an arrangement with Fiddes, surely he would have been subject to a legal gag order?

annie-you need to check your facts,MJ is their biodad,and he was not a pedo. Have you ever thought that Blanket does have a mother and will carry some of her traits.

Blanket looks extraordinarily like J5 MJ.

This guy is a total fame-whore.

Go and take a look at J5 pre-vitiligo, pre-surgery Michael and you will see just how shocking it is.

In fact look here, go on, do you dare?

This is ridiculous. The media also said that Macaulay Culkin was the father of Blanket. That is the media's new evil game now called 'let's find MJ's kids bio dads'. Salacious news like that in the tabloids is going to generate lots of money. Michael Jackson's fans must say enough is enough with the disrespecting of MJ's paternity of his kids and try to boycott all the websites that spread such disgusting stories.

Yes, give those poor kids a break. And yesterday I was thinking (coz I saw this "story" elsewhere), that it was noble of TMZ NOT to bring it! PAH. Double PAH!
Leave the kids alone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This guy is out for exposure for his business. Not Blanket´s father. Michael is. Blanket looks very much like Michael (and Janet and Katherine.)
Just think about it! Michael asking this, that and the other person for their sperm - and they go: "Sure thing, here ya go!"
Insane.

He was barely 20 years old and being MJ body guard????? Man why don't these a..holes just don't vanish from this earth. Look at all the body guards so far none were that f...ing young. And sure MJ would ask his BODYGUARD!!! for a sperm donation. WTF people are thinking, that we all ain't got no brains. Here he is coming openly and stating these f...up comments, knowing full well that their is this 50% at least possibility that blanket gets to hear about this. The little boy is 8 years old is it really necessary to do this to an 8 year old that has been already taumatised by his Father's sudden death???? I wish in earnest that some big huge a.. wave would come along and swallow up this whole planet and get rid of this evil human race.

Hi Brigha,

thank you for the information about that latest in a long row of shady creatures who spread BS about Michael Jackson. What you have to say is very helpful to assess this man's character.
What, once again, could make me furious is that the media are giving this man a forum to divulge his so obviously surreal claims. We ordinary people, at least those outside the UK, are entitled to be clueless about Fiddes. Journalists (???) are not. Their job is to do a background check before publishing crap like that, or at least not to leave it uncommented.

anyone who thinks MJ is the bio-dad seriously lacks education. When you have a bi-racial child with African American and Caucasian the child ends up with features from both races and if you look at the Jackson kids none of them have any traits of Micheal's or of an African American. Look threw photos of the kids and Micheal threw the years, they look nothing like him.It is also not possible for a child that is mixed with African American and Caucasian to come out 100% white , they either come out black or with brownish skin. It would take someone who seriously lacks education or who is very much in-denial not to see these children are 100% Caucasian
