As a follow up to my report right before this one; it’s been almost five years after his death, Music Legend, Michael Jackson’s name continues to pop up in our entertainment news.
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, FilmOn.com – 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.
Reports by TMZ
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.
Meanwhile Daily Mail reports that singer Augie Johnson has declared that he is the real father of Brandon Howard – even though ‘DNA evidence’ revealed today alleges he is ’99.9 per cent’ positively Michael Jackson’s lovechild.
Augie, 65, was one of the backing singers on Michael Jackon’s 1979 breakthrough album, Off The Wall, and went on to form the band, Side Effect. And speaking to Mail Online , Augie – who was in a long-term relationship with Brandon’s mom, singer Miki Howard – said he very much considers Brandon, now 31, to be his natural son.
Augie had two sons with Miki, Brandon and Nicholas, and breaking his silence on the rumours that Brandon could be the late superstar’s son, he said: ‘I KNOW Brandon’s my son – I was there in the delivery room, I have the pictures of him being born. I got the records, I got everything.
‘Before me, Miki wasn’t with anyone else – she didn’t even know Michael at that time. But you know what – I love my son and he can do whatever he likes. I’m not tripping on this – I want Brandon to have a successful career.’
