MJ's Alleged Son

You Can't Get MJ's Money

3/10/2014 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson
's newly-proclaimed alleged son will be fending for himself for the rest of his life, because there's NO WAY he can touch the money in MJ's estate.

Brandon Howard says he has no interest in going after the Estate, and that's a good thing, because Michael made sure he and everyone else in the world -- except Prince, Paris and Blanket -- could not lay a hand on MJ's assets. 

According to Michael's will ... Michael's 3 kids, along with some charities, ultimately get his money.  Michael also made sure that Katherine was supported during her lifetime.

We just dug through Michael's 2002 will -- in which he explicitly wrote, "Except as otherwise provided in this Will or in the Trust ... I have intentionally omitted to provide for my heirs."

Under the law, that's all she wrote, because MJ had every right to disinherit anyone he wanted ... even his own kids.  What he did was provide for Paris, Blanket and Prince ... and even if someone else could prove they were sired by the singer ... tough luck.

Bottom line ... Michael beat it, even in death.

If he wanted money, he could have tried twenty years ago. If this is Michael's child and he purposely left him out of the will, did not leave him anything in some other agreement, then Michael was an ass. You don't leave charity money and not your child. If Joe knew about the child, I think Michael did. Why everyone wants to mention money first is beyond me. If Michael did indeed know about this child, and I think he did, then you fans have to try harder to realize, Michael was not perfect, not the kindest, truthful, god you think he was. He was human. At his age, It seems he is capable of caring for himself.

This is a good example as to why the paparazzi should not be allowed in airports!

I just need Brandon to realize that the plastic surgery and skin whitening made him a laughing stock. He should not be trying to mimic that look. His arched eyebrows look ridiculous. So does his straightened hair.

This is such a non story. It's even more stupid than Justin Bieber. Any kids Michael Jackson has are bought, like Prince, Paris and Blanket or adopted. Men need sperm producing testicles to father children and MJ had his balls removed when he was a pre-teen, to keep his voice from changing, so this whole DNA drama is bullsh!t. And since MJ's balls were removed before they started producing sperm, he couldn't have made any deposits to a sperm bank. The first boy who publicly accused Michael Jackson of molesting him wasn't looking for discolorations when he had to identify MJ's junk. He was able to verify that MJ had no testicles.

I see MJ all over him! MJ was probably ashamed of having a non-white child since he obviously hated himself and only wanted white kids! Poor Brandon!

If he was Michael's son wouldn't he look like the pre-surgery Michael & not the post-surgery Michael? MJ was a brown-skinned person with a wide nose & other features that were drastically altered due to surgeries. This guy's mother is dark-skinned & the man who claims to be his biological father is of a light complexion. Also, this man is willing to do a DNA test to prove it so I think he should so this debacle can be over!

The NOSE is different.

Go back to when the Jackson 5 were singing "ABC"
and look at their noses.

I find the wording of the will very interesting! Why would you state that you have INTENTIONALLY omitted to provide for your heirs when you know you don't have any? Unless, he knew about the possibility of someone that he chose not to include. Which may or may not be this guy.

Give him a real dna test and if he is the real son of MJ, he has every right to get a hand on that MJ estate.

Say what you want, but that was Michael Jackson walking in that video. And since the pot has been stirred and made public, I want o know the truth. I (and I'm sure many other people ) want to see a DNA test through a court. If its negative, fine. But if it's positive, it's only fair this guy and everyone involved know he truth. And as much as I love Michael Jackson, if he knew he had a biological son, and he wrote that will like that on purpose, well, now it's between him and God.

once the dna test proves, everyone can leave this poor guy alone.. not like he was there when he was created who knows who the guys father is and if he is the father then everyone needs to leave him alone, and if he isn't then get over it.. he can't tell the world which man created him but it could be a possibility.
