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.

Or probably he's just saying he's not involved and instead it's just a publicity stunt or a pathetic attempt to get Michael Jackson's money even if they do know they have NO chance!!! In all cases as always anything for money!!!

Looks like Jermaine more than anything. I bet Joseph told his mother that he was gonna make her famous.... She just had to get on her knees. 9 months later, this one was born.

Ok seriously, this was before his hair caught on fire and he became addicted to pain meds and got all weird. It is quite possible that he is MJ's son. He does look like and sound like him. I am calling it at 50/50 till we get a test with Grandma Katherine. Personally I think it would be amazing if he is his son! A true blood son, not taking anything away from Paris, Prince and Blanket, but a blood son that may have inherited his talent? Time will tell

Michael's son, which actually does have a resemblance to Michael and his DNA. Amazing that he looks nothing like Prince, Paris or Blanket. Just a hunch but I'm thinking their DNA wouldn't match Michael's.
