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.

Michael Jackson had plastic surgery. Without it, he would have looked extremely different. This kid looks like him AFTER surgery. Genetics doesn't work that way.

One problem. This person looks like the "Carved up, bleached skin" Michael, NOT the real "Rounded chin, wider nose, darker skin" REAL one! You don't inherit plastic surgery looks. Where did this DNA test come from? Lots of questions. He mentions his company a little too much for it to be totally believable.

No need for a test he looks n sounds just like him!! I bet he just wanted to know the truth on who his dad is. Too bad he's passed on so he will never officially meet his dad. God bless n hope everything works and he got what he needed out of knowing who his dad is

Wow ...    

These are exactly the kind of people that made MJ's life miserable. I'm not suggesting MJ isn't free from blame, but there are these types who will not even let him RIP. If this guy had any legit claim, he would have quietly gone to the family. Not issue some BS denial about involvement, and have a press conference. He was a part of it. and his looks - he has had surgeries to look like the MJ who had surgeries. Morons, all of them. And corey ought to be ashamed, he claims he was a friend to MJ, but even as a fan I know MJ would not approve of this circus act! It really is disgusting. It wouldn't matter if it was all true, which I don't for one second believe, the way this has been done has been in extremely poor taste.

He starts to read the return address and it doesn't match where they supposedly got the test done so he goes just shut up and read the results LOL

I am sure that if Brandon is MJ's son, MJ paid Mikki Howard very well to keep it quiet even though he denied being the father.

@Lisa.. he looks like him before or after MJ's plastic surgeries? I just heard him sing. He is terrible. He dresses and tries to act like Michael but he has no talent. He sucks.
