MJ's Alleged Son

DNA Test Results Are Bogus

Ripped from 'Terminator'

EXCLUSIVE

Here's a shocker -- the DNA test results that allegedly prove 31-year-old Brandon Howard is Michael Jackson's son are BOGUS ... in fact, so bogus ... the logo from the so-called DNA testing lab was ripped from "Terminator Salvation."

As we reported, FilmOn.com's Alki David put on a spectacle Thursday -- claiming he had DNA results proving singer B Howard was the biological son of the King of Pop. He then produced the results showing a "99.99999%" probability that MJ was Brandon's dad.

TMZ obtained a photo of the DNA doc -- allegedly from a testing facility in Ireland called "DNA Lab." We searched high and low but could find no such generic DNA lab in Ireland.

Skeptical, we investigated -- a simple Google image search of "DNA results" turns up a bunch of sample docs with the same exact easily-stealable format as the one we got.

But the coup de grace -- we then Google image searched "DNA logo" and the first result ... literally ... was the same DNA pic used in the "DNA Lab" logo.

And that's not even the best part -- a reverse image search of the logo shows a bunch of results for "Terminator Salvation." A little more digging revealed the logo was used on PROMOTIONAL T-SHIRTS for the movie.

Can't say we're all that shocked.

Maybe, just maybe TMZ should have gotten the hint the other day when someone said that Augie Johnson was his father along with his brother Nicholas. Maybe, just maybe if they'd only conducted a interview with his father just like the London Daily Mail did when he said he was in the delivery room when he was born and that Michael and Miki had never met before HIS SON was conceived, they would know better. What we do know is that TMZ will not let MICHAEL JACKSON REST IN PEACE nor will they EVER give respect NOR will RESPECT WHAT MICHAEL'S CHILDREN HAVE TO GO THOUGH OVER THIS NONSENSE! THINK TWICE TMZ before you post crap again, DO THINK TWICE! Y'all are making me sick with your crap on Michael.

The person that created this scam was Alkiviades “Alki” David. The scam was revealed when the DNA results were read stating " 99.9% parental". He never named Michael Jackson or Brandon Howard. If he would have done that he could have been sued. Therefore, Alki David made fools out of all the readers and other media outlets by using TMZ as their carrier.

'DNA RESULTS ARE BOGUS - Ripped from 'Terminator"

And even that's not correct. The logo used on the printout is one used for promotional materials for the movie "The Terminator", not the results of the test (assuming one was even conducted) itself. REALLY getting sloppy around here.

TMZ says the best part is that the logo was stolen from the tshirt. When actually the best part is that this highly reputable lab cannot spell "alleged" on their results. But TMZ's 3rd grade writing staff would have never caught that due to the constant grammatical errors on this site.

This is the second time this Alki guy has used TMZ to legitimize his idiotic schemes. I hope he's paying you guys well because he is destroying your credibility.

No surprise here. DNA is a funny thing, if a child inherits a parent's looks, its always pre-plastic surgery looks. Knew it was bogus when the story came out. Did they really think people are that stupid??? FFS
