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.

Watching the video below, that guy is 100%. Michael Jackson. And when he was younger it was like having Michael Jackson in front of you. The way he talks, his mannerisms, is all Michael. I would dare to bet the same sensible self. I'm glad this is finally out. It is only fair.

I would love for this kid to be his son ! i mean there is no trace of MJ's real blood that we know of. The one thing that gets me is IF this is his son why now? i would think if MJ knew he wouldnt have denied him? did he not know? lots of questions. Get on it TMZ

he looks like a Jackson, but couldn't he be one of the other jackson brother's kids and still have the some of the same DNA as MJ? don't siblings share like 50% of their DNA?
could it be possible that Billie was indeed hagin and bagin with a Jackson, just not MJ, hence his need to clarify: the kid is not MY son?
just throwing that out there...

Instead of going through this dog and pony show, how about asking Miki Howard. the mother of B Howard. And check out these guys in the picture. Looks like a meeting of "wise guys."
