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.

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."

Blanket is Michaels son. He looks to much like Michael when he was younger. This man has lost his mind!!! He thinks blanket is his but has no proof. He's going to have to explain to his kids that they have a half brother, are you serious?? Why would he even bring his kids into something like that. Why is he just now coming forward???

Leave the Jacksons alone haven't they been thru enough. This slime ball Matt only wishes he could make a son as cute as Blanket. Blanket is a Jackson 100%!!!!!!

none of the kids look anything like the REAL, pre-op MJ!

Okay..I'm probably (along with millions of others)Michael's biggest "fan". But, I have a question about Blanket that puzzles me. IF he's not the father, and we don't know the mom (in terms of Blanket)then..HOW did he get him? If he's not the mother OR the father..then he'd have to adopt him. So there'd be adoption papers someplace. Even if you have a sperm donater that person wouldn't be the legal father as he wasn't married to the mother. And if he's not the bio father, the mother couldn't just give him the child. SO...unless there are adoption papers, Michael is the father. With the two oldest, whether or not he's the bio dad don't matter because he was married to the mother so they are his.

you people are so dump and blind
there is no way this guy is not his dad
they look the same
and its not a big deal at all if the kid finds out his real bio dad

The kid does resemble this guy, who knows. Someone is the father and is is 100 percent sure it is not Michael Jackson. There is zero resemblance to Michael at any stage of his life.

It is obvious which of Michael's buddies is the father of Prince I so why it is a stretch that he would use sperm from another person he knows?

Does not matter who pappy is, we know the FATHER and he was a good one.

Stop stirring up chit. Leave these kids alone. Let them get use to idiots, wannabes, star struck media and let him remember the good times with MJJ.

TMZ the only good thing you have done for Michael is printed the good things that people who formerly called MJJ wacko, are now seeing that MJJ was a decent man.

I know other rags are printing things but you have a good following and I would never have known about this had you not mentioned it.

Leave this child alone about their business and if they want answers it is no body's business to help them except the Jackson family.

LEAVE THIS CHILD ALONE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OMG how many guys did MJ ask to donate their stuff? What's with that, what was wrong with his? It doesn't really matter who's was used to make the babies, the whole situation is so sad. Why couldn't MJ get married to a woman he loved and make babies the old fashioned way?

Who ever thinks any of MJ's kids are his biologically
are blind...they look NOTHING like him.

Totally agree with you. Any of them could look a little bit like MJ, but no, MJ isn't the father of any of them imo....Yet another lie from MJ. Did he ever say anything that was true?

This from the guy who couldn't wait to get his face on TV and declare MJ had a 'secret girlfriend'.
He must be doing it tough financially to come up with this SH*T and sell it to some tabloid vultures for MONEY$$.
What a loser!

Years too late, Sneddon finally admits the truth:

Isn't it amazing that every single time any story about Michael's 3 children comes out -- here come the idiots who think they know first hand that he was not their father? Then there's the idiots who bring up all of these individuals who they think is the biological dad. Then there are the total idiots who bring up crap saying he paid for white kids. Then even more amazing you have the ones that come on here acting as if it is a crime that Michael was a single father. It's only because it's Michael Jackson. He said he was the children's father and that's all that needs to be said period! I totally see now why he chose to cover them up. Look how ugly the human race is with some of these nasty and hateful comments. He raised those children and they were his. For these morons to come out of the woodwork claiming they are the parents of these children truly do not care about these children. Those of you making hateful comments about these children and/or their father and/or their father's family need to stop and think how you would like it if your own children were picked apart on any website and how it would feel if some neighbor or coworker broadcasted that he was the father of your children where your children might possible be able to see or hear that not to mention someone saying the vile and cruel things about your husband, father, brother and son as some of your people do about Michael Jackson. Clean the hatred out of your hearts and shut up about those children!

Some of you seriously need your eyes checked! This guy is not Blanket's father. Blanket is the spitting image of MJ. This guy is just trying to cash in on the Jackson gravy train,just like tmz! MJ is the biological dad of his children

I usually think these type of allegations are all false, but in this case, I think it's true. The facial similarities are WAY too close. In fact, as soon as I saw this guy's picture I thought to myself that he looks like MJ's kid -- even before I read the headline. I'd be surprised if he's NOT the biological father.

Another moron seeking money. Blanket is Michael's son (all three are Michael's children!) and of no one other! Go to work idiot!

Blanket does look like the man, but I still think the Bio father is Meeko Brandon, and the only friend of Michaels that hasn't made a claim as the father. The bottom line is these are legally M Js kids and no one else can take that away from them.
