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, -- 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.

The type of DNA test completed matters a lot in this instance. If it was a y-str test, a match could be reported even if michael's father was the parent, or any other biological brothers who share the same father as michael. Y chromosomes are passed via the paternal line.

Hohoho, let the fun begins, if he is also a molester, then he is 100% MJ's son. But why did MJ said he was not his son, might be because MJ felt better that he didn't molest his son.

He looks a bit like Michael after all the surgery, not at all prior to surgery and that is what this kid should look like. I guess they forget what Michael really looked like. Just another fool who needs attention.

If its anybody's child its Joe Jacksons and this guy is obviously trying to sound and act just like Michael. His mom sure has screwed him up.

It doesn't matter, he'd either have had to go through a Hospital or court order/monitored DNA test for the tests to actually matter. Why? Because the tests are easy to fudge.

If the guy, 2nd from the right, is on your team, this is a scam. NO ONE normal would dress like that. The guy looks so slimy that you just know he's a creep and a liar.
