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."

the kids does look like him. for one thing, they have the exact same mouth and chin. and the noses could be similar too.

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

When will all this nonsense stop about who is the Bio-dad to these children? Michael was their father period! Any male can impregnate a female - but that does not make them a father! A father is the one who loves, cares, takes care of, protects, provides, etc. That is a father! And that is what Michael was - a true father to these children in every essence. So what difference does it make if he is the bio-dad or not? Not a blessed thing! Michael loved his children, and his children loved him! Michael lived for his children, and was always there for them - the way a father should be. I just wish that people would stop picking on the children. Michael did a wonderful job in raising them - they are very good kids - leave them alone!

MJ215062009 = Human Nature

What's up with the multiple names you moron? Writing all in caps and thinking people were not going to figure out who you were? You're the typical example of a retarded Jackobot. Why don't you bang your head on the wall a thousand times? Oh, I forgot. You can't afford the hospital bill. And how was your lonely weekend inside your cold, moldy and dark basement? Bashing a lot of people around here, huh?

Those white kids are not MJ's! He was a liar and was ashamed of being black, you creeps! Sure, a black man has biological children and the three of them are white, without a single negroid feature. Oh yeah! They do resemble the entire Jackson family, blah blah blah! You Jacko fans are so brain-dead it's laughable! You would have drank piss if Jacko had told you to.

Ha ha, Jacko fans are fat and ugly people who cannot get dates. So they spend time glued to their crappy computers fantasizing about a pedophile!

Yeah, Human Nature, since you love bashing people and calling them names, I just thought I would return the favor! LOSER!

And Missy, your posts are so pathetic it hurts!

125:katie-there already was dna tests done and it confirmed MJ as the biodad.

So Missy, if you know your facts, why don't you prove there were DNA tests to confirm him as the dad? You're so full of it. And Paris goes to get a haircut and the bodyguards make sure to sweep the hair off the floor. Because she is not MJ's daughter!

@TheTruthHurts-there are many biracial people who do not look black,genetics are funny that way.I'm not the one who is full of it,it's the media and ignorant people like you!

Well said Missy!

TheTruthHurts/ohwell-since apparently you don't use your brain ever think that since the Jackson's have white and native american ancestors that will play apart down the genetic line.Also Blanket does have mother,and the public does not know who she is,and he will carry some of her traits aswell. In case you missed the news,MJ was not a pedo,and you call the fans "fat and ugly people sitting infront of computers" well you are doing the same thing. Try doing some real research and you learn the truth

Not that it matters because MJ was/is the Father of those children in all sense of the word.

But I use to think that bi-racial children would always show some traits of their heritage. That is until I met my son's prom date.

She appears to be white. She is very light skinned, long straight shiny black hair, and no Ar. Am. features at all. She is a beautiful girl.

Her mom is black. Her dad is white with light brown hair. And her sister is white with flaming red hair and freckles, (explain that one) and none of them look like each other.

So I now believe that in today's world genetics does not always follow suit. Especially since there is so much mixing in the different cultures.

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,

Thank you for the reality check & spelling this out for us, MJULS.

I don't get why anyone (fans, haters, press, etc.) even bother to bring this up let alone debate about it!!!! Come on people, it does not matter legally and it will never change the feelings in the hearts of MJ3 or the love MJ felt for them.

Seriously this guy looks like Prince.

Same exact expression.

Seriously folks, MJ brought this speculation upon his kids. No I do not believe for 1 second that those are his kids. One, perhaps would be an exception to the rules of genetics. But based on the phenotype of all of the Jacksons, and their kids, no these are not jacksons, they look NOTHING like jacksons, pre-surgery = GENES.

Yes, Mj was the PARENT, we know that. But because of the totally bizarre cir***stances pertaining to their mother, and birth, people are speculating. No, these are not jackson genes. That hair of Blankets is NOT AA, due to the extreme thickness and straightness, and shine. So, please, do not ask us to believe that the cow jumped over the moon, bc no these are not Jackson genes, we are not blind, nor dumb.

ALL the Jacksons have kinky hair all of them, not one has wavy or straight hair, therefore this is just absolutely ridiculous to try to insist upon these fantasies, and yes we have the right to speculate, bc Jackson was full of mystery, and unconventional in his methods of creating a family.

Who knew that strands of Paris Jackson’s hair might be valuable? Not only was Paris treated to a Las Vegas shopping spree with her grandmother Katherine Jackson and her tutor Sister Rose (above), but she also visited a beauty salon. Paris had her hair trimmed at the salon in the Palms Hotel and after the cut, every snippet of hair was carefully swept up and placed in a plastic baggie and given to her bodyguard. Las Vegas TV reporter Alicia Jacobs happened to be in the next chair and she watched the events unfold. Alicia surmised that someone just MIGHT take the hair and have it tested for DNA or try to sell it on eBay. For some reason, the Jacksons don’t seem to want to know the parentage of Michael’s mysterious brood. Paris looks tan and healthy – she’s finally getting to play OUTSIDE. Michael avoided the sun.

The people who think that these are his biological kids sound much more intelligent with their mouths shut.

.... And for the ones who claim to be geneticists, Geneticists of what? Plants?
