MJ's Alleged Son

Positive DNA Match

Or So They Say

There's a 99.9% chance a 31-year-old man is Michael Jackson's illegitimate son ... at least that's the claim after an alleged DNA test turned up a match.

According to the test results -- obtained by Alki David and his company, FilmOn.com -- Brandon Howard is almost certainly Michael's son.  David told TMZ Live he got MJ's dental impression from a Beverly Hills doctor that he got at an auction.  The impression is 30 years old but David says its filled with DNA.

Brandon -- who now goes by B Howard and looks and acts very much like Michael -- was not present for the unveiling, but David says he had Howard's DNA and it matched up.



David would not say which lab performed the DNA test, but says it showed a clear match.

Brandon's mom -- Miki Howard -- is a famous gospel singer who Michael knew.   She went by the name "Billy" back in 1982.  Interestingly ... a year later Michael released "Billie Jean," which included the lyrics, "Billie Jean's not my lover" and "The kid is not my son."

For B Howard's part -- he's distancing himself from the whole spectacle, insisting he had nothing to do with it.

That is a young Michael, right there. I have been a MJ fan my whole life, and I was around before MJ mutilated himself. That is his son. Everything.

Uh, here's the problem--he looks like MJJ AFTER MJJ had surgery, except for the nose. He talks like Michael did AFTER his surgeries and affectations set in. A blood son would NOT inherit plastic surgery! Duh.

WELL..... IF he isn't. . he sure looks and sounds just like that mofo. Maybe he is Joe's son??? IDK, but in either case it doesn't take a DNA test to see he's got some Jackson in him.... NOW those other three??? Paris, Quilt and Prince.... Baybeee... I think not.

That kid is an exact combination of MJ and Micki Howard. He has Micki's skin color and nose. He has Mike's height and bone structure, hair,lips,droopy eyelids, ears, and chin.
Everyone has always known that Mike is bisexual.

Miki Howard IS NOT a gospel singer, she's a R&B and Jazz singer. Also this is the first time I've heard of Miki being referred by the name Billy other than her playing Billie Holiday in Spike Lee's Malcolm X and making album Miki Sings Billie. Also Miki Howard was known for having a long time off and on love affair with Gerald Levert which started after her 1st marriage ended. TMZ get your facts correct.

He has the same smile as MJ and Janet, he has the arms/hands/shoulders like MJ. Anything is possible.

There are numerous Michael Jackson impressionists in the world. He is just another one. He claims he gets tired of being told that he looks, sounds and dances like Michael yet his videos are a complete rip off of Michael. Only thing missing is this guy has no talent. He can't sing for sh*t.
