MJ's Alleged Son

"Dad" Speaks Out

He Warned Me About DNA Lies

EXCLUSIVE

A man has come forward claiming he's the real father of 31-year-old Brandon Howard -- NOT Michael Jackson -- telling TMZ, Howard warned him earlier this week the DNA story would be breaking ... and told him it was phony baloney.

65-year-old Augie Johnson tells us, he fathered Brandon during his relationship with Brandon's mom, Miki Howard in the 80s -- and has remained a central figure in Brandon's life.

He tells us, he was in the delivery room when Brandon was born and even brought Brandon to recording studios as a child. We've seen multiple family photos of them together.

Augie says they're so close ... Brandon called him days before TMZ broke the story about the DNA test, telling him, "Don't worry about this stuff. You are my dad."

Augie insists his son had nothing to do with the DNA stunt -- telling us the "greedy people" around Brandon are the masterminds.

As for Brandon resembling MJ -- Augie says it's purely a coincidence. If anything, Brandon resembles Michael AFTER surgery -- so there's actually no resemblance at all.

This sounds like a stand up dad. Of course the guy would say he's his dad. DNA doesn't matter, he raised him making him the dad. But as far as birth wise? Well. Think this dude is just offended on the proclamation that he might not be his. If his son warned him about this story and really said it was phony, why didn't he talk him out if it? Why not contact his son and convince him to come clean? Why go to the MEDIA and not his son? Dude is either trying to get his own five seconds of fame, in on the supposed scam, or simply upset at the potential possibility. What a swell dad.

Let's keep it 100%. This guy is named Howard not Johnson. When twitter folks asked Howards mom who the dad was, she said "I'm the daddy". The bbest answer yet. Doesn't matter who's DNA fathered her child, she played all the roles her children needed because not a damn one stepped up to the plate to help raise him. Miki is the father. End. Mic drop. Wrap this story up and on to the next one.

It's Funny TMZ that your reporting such untrue information about the Jackson brothers relationship with Brandon Howard.

There happens to be a interview on youtube that was done in Japan with Brandon Howard where he is clearly talking about his relationship with Jermaine and Jackie.
The video is on public domain and no one has come out to say that this is fake in anyway.

Also, to the point of them actually advising him on what songs to use for his album. If someone who is telling you that he had nothing to do with the whole crazy Corey feldman fiasco look further than what is being told here. Until the brothers come out officially on camera and stating that they don't know Brandon your report is false!!

So is this video of Brandon a lie? I think not ! You don't want the truth your trying to kill the truth but the truth is coming out and you can hide that. This guy has every right to know who his father his and you should research further on what is being said and what had been out publicly in interviews. Just as Joe jackson has stated through a slip up that Brandon is the next Micheal in the jackson family.

The link is below as well. Yeah Did everyone know that Marlon was a twin and the brother that died his name was "Brandon". The truth is in front of you but you don't want to believe it. If Micheal is not the father then Brandon is Micheal Jackson's long lost brother.

Brandon did not ask to be born he just wants the truth and he has every right to know. Would you not want to know who your father was. Think people everything is front of you and you just gotta look to see the truth.

Augie Johnson WORKED for MJ during the time Brandon was conceived. The DNA Test is a HOAX but Brandon as MJ's son IS NOT. Brandon has looked like MJ since a child. Do you know why Brandon was born a HOWARD as the 1st child and his younger brother, Nicholas, was born a JOHNSON (Augie's last name). Brandon is NOT trying to be like MJ. He is NATURALLY like MJ cause it's in his GENES. Brandon can not help he LOOKS LIKE MJ AND SOUNDS LIKE HIM NATURALLY. Everyone notices it.

mj fan forever    

Michael Jackson had ONLY THREE cosmetic surgeries - 2 on his nose and 1 on his chin- and the CORONER confirmed that, first off!!! Then this guy resembles NOTHING like Michael Jackson as there is NO link in every sense, so there CAN'T be any coincidence!!! Then the guy was totally IN the publucity stunt and even warned his REAL father not to worry. And please... they ALL are greedy people who are exploiting Michael Jackson's name to grab money!!! A bunch of money-grabbers willing to invent anything for money, nothing new!!!

This story is bull sh.t,if you go you tube to listen to his song,look at the bottom.it says the video was released on June 2011,so basically no one gave a sh.t or knew who he was,but now when you throw Michael Jackson's name in there, Brandon is a hit.another loser trying to profit off of MJ!

Brandon actually tries to look like Michael, such as the pic above. In pics where he just looks like Brandon such as the one he took with the surviving members of the Jackson 5 he looks like Augie to me.

Why are y'all still on this story? Geez move onnnn. Y'all already said it was fake get over it. And he doesn't look like augie either maybe mom was just sneaking around with multiple guys. I've seen augies other sons and they look exactly like augie but anyways stop giving this story so much airtime. I bet it's because y'all know he's close to the Jacksons and La Toya is going to have on her show.
