Michael Jackson's Bros

The Kid Is Not His Son

Michael Jackson
's brothers have now come forward ... calling BS on the so-called DNA test proving Brandon Howard is Michael's long lost son.

A rep for the brothers tells TMZ, the brothers are united in scoffing at the claim ... and for a variety of reasons.

First, a source says in Michael's 50 years on earth, he never mentioned anything about having a child other than Prince, Paris and Blanket.  And, other sources who had day-to-day contact with Jackson echo the same to TMZ.

A source also says the brothers met B Howard one time -- back in 2012, when he came backstage for a meet and greet after one of their shows.  He never even intimated he might be a relative.

And the brother's say Joe had a professional relationship with Howard's mom, yet he never breathed a word of this ... and they say he would have said something, especially after Michael died.

The rep calls the so-called DNA test "unfounded hearsay."

With Joe's reputation, they may not be full brothers either.

Of course they are going to deny. Why have another hand in their $$$ bucket??? I do question why after all this time - he probably was fathered by Joe Jackson.

They didn't need to make that statement. No one believes this fraud. But now they have muddied the water by making a statement that contradicts what Brandon's real father has said. Now I'm wondering why two sides that agree this is a sham have differing stories.

Forget this guy. I would love a DNA test on MJ's supposed 3 kids. I really doubt any of them are really his. I'm about 99.99999% sure he isn't.

Brandon looks nice in that pic. He really should stop trying to look like Michael and just be himself.

I find it strange I followed B Howard on twitter, and 30 minutes later MJ's official twitter followed me out of nowhere. This kid has ties to MJ.
