MJ's Ex-Bodyguard: I Don't Want DNA Test, Unless ...

9/29/2010 5:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's former bodyguard Matt Fiddes -- who claims he may be the biological father of Blanket -- says he won't pursue a DNA test to prove he's the dad ... unless something drastic happens.

Fiddes tells TMZ, "My mum has begged me to approach the Jacksons for a DNA test on Blanket as she says he is the spitting image of me at that age," but adds ... "I am not willing to approach this subject as I feel the Jackson's and Michael's children have been through enough already."

But Fiddes says there is one possible scenario in which he'd change his mind -- telling us that if Blanket's current guardian, Katherine Jackson, died ... neither Jermaine nor Tito were willing to step up to the plate ... Fiddes says he would make a play for guardianship ... beginning with a DNA test.

As to this guy?.. who cares. Seriously, simply scrape him off the bottom of your shoe, and move on...

HOWEVER...

I've often wondered about MJ giving Blanket his nickname as opposed to the other 2, not that he loved the two older any less at all!!... just that he saw himself in blanket and that's why felt particularly "comforted" and connected so he felt compelled to give him not only a nick but THAT nick. It could be that he is not bio father of the older two BUT NO LESS THEIR FATHER in all ways that matter including iron clad legally!.. but, IS in fact bio of Blanket.. so connected to Blanket on a different level, but again not love him than the other two just an added dimension of love that bio offers...

This guy's resemblance to Blanket is strong, as is Prince Michael I's resemblance to Arnie Klein. There is no denying it.

#31 Lee Lee, you are so right! TMZ should have more stories about Tohme Tohme, Randy Phillips, and maybe even Jermaine Jackson. Now that would be an interesting story. Leave MJ's children alone. Poor Jermaine is broke? Well consider selling your Rolls Royce....I read it was a gift from some Prince?

How dare that s*** bag try and claim paternity... He was hired as an extra bodyguard very temporarily while MJ was visiting Europe years ago - this guy has already caused problems over the years for the Jacksons, trying to make out he was MJs best friend to other Jackson fmaily members, so he could exploit them and cash in on whatever he could...

he's a con artist and a low life, and he has no money as he just had a very public court case in England where he couldnt even afford to pay his legal fees or pay what he owes to the people that sued him....go back to the hole u crawled out from...

Roseilicious, if I'm not mistaken, MJ said he gave the nic name of blanket because it meant (I think he said) it meant to cover with love.

Prince Michael II's nickname is Blanket. He got that nickname because Blanket means showering someone with love. It was explained by MJ in the Living with Michael Jackson do***entary.

There's NOTHING about this guy that even remotely resembles Blanket, Thank God!!!
Blanket, truly has Hispanic blood in him, no doubt about that!!
Stop dreaming, Matt Fiddes, Blanket is NOT your child!!! You can move along now!!!
While I will say that Blanket is probably NOT MJ’s biological child, he is by all means Michael’s by heart and soul!!!! And that’s all that matters!!!!
Godspeed Blanket, Yo’daddy loved you with all his might!!!
