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."

I am a geneticist and a person with eyes. I wonder if some you you have looked at Blanket recently. He is so clearly at least biracial and obviously biologically related to Michael Jackson. Of all the kids to try and claim..It is beyond ridculous how anyone can claim to be Blanket's father.

why don't you take a look at this link:

see how obvious they resemble

and then this one:

which shows how he is clearly not white.

wipe the tabloid crap from your eyes people.

But I guess it's easier to live in delusion.

Yes, Miss J more than likely swallowed the evidence after she harvested it orally!

This story is meaningless without a nude photo of Matthew!

chrissy-there is no law stating that AA features will be dominate,there are alot of people who are biracial yet they look totally white,no black features. The J3 do look like MJ as well as other members of the Jackson family.

LOL this is hilarious, he can't even keep up with his lies.

So he claims to jack off into cups for celebrities - for FREE because he's just that kind of swell generous guy and doesn't foresee any kind of problems that this might incur in the future or legal work this would involve - but then he gets angry because HE's the one leaking this story and will have to tell his kids why their father is such a liar and they have some celebrity siblings? PLEASE. If you're mad at having to explain this thing to your kids a) don't leak it, b) and this is important - don't jack off into random cups for random people! If you donated to a sperm bank then you were already prepared in having random kids, right????

Idiots. And bringing up Mark Lester's name, you might as well bring up the tooth fairy and Elvis.

To the person talking about education - his name is spelt "Michael" and it's called "spell check." Please and thank you.

Most sickening is that each single of this stories starts this unnecessary, bothersome and ugly discussion about Michael's paternity again.
I'm so fed up with it.
And I wish this shady club of self-proclaimed fathers of MJ3 would limit itself to talk to each other instead of harassing the public and disturbing poor MJ3.
I hope these kids are strong enough to deal with that BS.

Missy (51) you are correct. I am qualifed to make it known that genetics just isn't as clear cut as most lay people assume. It is so much more complicated than how it is at highschool level. People just don't realise this. I it were that simple, we would have cured all the genetic disorders and I would have no job.

Umm, doubt highly that any of those are MJ biokids, based on common sense.

That kid looks more like Brando, and I think he's his. The facts are this:

MJ COLLECTED SPERM FROM KLEIN, THIS DUDE, BRANDO AND PLENTY OF OTHERS.

WHY WAS MJ COLLECTING SPERM, EH?

HE IS HIGHLY LIKELY NOT THE BIO DAD, BASED ON PHYSICAL EVIDENCE, GENETIC PROBABILITY, AND THE COLLECTION OF SPERM FROM VARIOUS WHITE CANDIDATES.

I think that Brando is the biodad.

MJ was selfish to have these kids, with no MOM around, knowing full well about his use of dangerous substances like propofol to sleep. I feel sorry for these kids, as they are essentially parentless right now.

Good morning/afternoon/evening to all.

The notion that any of Mr. Jackson’s three children WOULD or COULD be disinherited based on biology is entirely erroneous.

These children were Mr. Jackson’s children (legally) at the time of his death and they remain his rightful heirs under the law and by Mr. Jackson’s own designation. Even if it were to be established that Mr. Jackson was not the biological father of one or all of the children, their position(s) as heirs and their legal rights as such would remain unabated and intact.


Be well all,

Mjuls, Esq.

OMG people does it matter in the end of the day if Prince, Paris or Blanket look like Michael J Jackson. In the end of the day they are Michael's children no matter what!! He was the one they call daddy. He was the one that was with then from the day they were born. This guy is just another fame whore!! Leave MJ's children alone.

MJ did not collect sperm from anybody.

Please provide proof of this - do***ents, legal do***ents (there would have been numerous amounts of these, signed and dated), sperm donation receipts, thank you cards these men received from Michael.

Go ahead, show the proof. Then call up TMZ yourself and sell the biggest story of the year. They're waiting for you.

lili,seriously check your facts. These children look just like MJ,he didn't go around asking for sperm(that is more made up lies) Miko never said he could be their dad(that again was the media) these kids are clearly biracial,not white. We don't know the facts about Blankets mother,so how do we know she wasn't around? She wanted privacy,not media attention. Look what the media has done to Debbie,also Debbie choose not to be around.

Exactly! If any of this BS was true there would be some kind of paper trail that the media would have found by now.
@lili,AA genes are not always dominate,he does have a mother and will carry her traits too! Look at Rashida Jones,Jennifer Beals their hair is striaght,yet their hair is striaght and they are biracial

Missy, I do not believe these to be lies. Klein, Brando, this guy, and plenty of others have stated that they provided sperm for MJ.

Even if one of them is lying, like this dude, I do not believe that they others are. Klein had NO MOTIVE TO MAKE THAT CLAIM, since he has NEVER tried to collect on the estate, or establish parental rights.
