MJ's Alleged Son

Positive DNA Match

Or So They Say

breaking news


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, -- 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.

Some of you guys are pretty ignorant with your comments. The article specifically says that the kid was distancing himself from the situation. Meaning that he doesn't want attention or money. And I don't blame him. In Michael's song it denies the kids mother as his lover and denies him as his son. So, I'd be pretty upset and would distance myself as well.

got the creeps watching this. It was like MJ reincarnated. Looks and sound just like MJ, its too coincidental. He said hes "well taken care of"..hmm..maybe MJ took care of him, though I wouldnt see why MJ would try to deny his own son. Could it be Joe Jacksons child? He definitely looks like a Jackson!!

I can tell by the writing that the author has no idea who Miki Howard is. Didn't spell her name right, and she's never gone by Billy, at least not professionally. I don't know where they got that from.

Umm When Michael "Dated" Tatum O'Neil, Ola Ray, and Brooke Shields ALL of them said that they couldn't even get Michael to give them a KISS let alone sex from him. Some couldn't even be alone with him because he was always with Webster, The Corey's, or Macaulay. These women look exotic. Now if these exotic women couldn't get the D out of Michael, what makes you think that Mikki Howards' black a** could? Therealjadefox@ insragram/twitter/fb
