Paternity test shows B. Howard is Michael Jackson’s son, results questioned

B Howard - Michael Jackson

Paternity test results show there is a 99.999 percent chance Michael Jackson fathered Brandon Howard. The results were revealed during a live-streamed press conference

“This is the only living son of the late Michael Jackson that is known to exist,” one of the panelists said, hinting at questions about Michael’s other children’s true paternity.

Corey Feldman, who was close friends with Michael Jackson, added of Brandon, “I’ve never met two people more alike in my life. The first time he came into my house, I felt like Michael Jackson was walking into my house today.”

Rumors about Michael Jackson fathering Brandon have been around for years, largely because of the story’s feasibility: Brandon — who goes by B. Howard — is a 31-year-old singer and producer. His mother, Miki Howard, was represented by Joe Jackson in the early 1980s. She commonly went by “Billy” back in those days. Shortly after Brandon was born, Michael released Billie Jean, which contains the lyric “the kid is not my son.”

Shortly before the press conference, B. Howard posted a video to Facebook to explain he didn’t sell the story and wasn’t trying to profit from the Jackson estate.

Brandon reiterated the same in an official statement:

To my fans, family, and friends, despite recent allegations, I did not authorize the testing of my DNA to be compared to that of the late Michael Jackson nor did I contact TMZ regarding the publication of the story.

This spring, I agreed to be a part of a documentary with FilmOn.TV and was asked to give a sample of my DNA. Even though I agreed to this I never expected it to be used in this manner.

To this day, I have never claimed to be Michael Jackson’s son nor do I have any intention of pursuing the family’s estate.

There are lingering doubts about the paternity test, which was performed using DNA from one of Michael Jackson’s old retainers that was later purchased at an auction.

UPDATE TMZ got ahold of the paternity test results from “DNA Medical Lab” in Ireland. There’s no evidence the lab actually exists. Plus, the lab’s logo was apparently ripped from The Terminator.

    Well he sure looks and talks like Michael that is for sure!!

  • LaLa84

    He looks like MJ before MJ looked like a white woman.

    • ameliaBedelia76

      he never looked like a woman. He looked like a thing. Cut his face up so bad he didn’t have a gender

        how fucken rude of you to say that about a dead man. you know what ill come to your grave when your dead and shit on it.

    • frontdoormom

      Lol at the white woman reference. My son has recently learned of MJ and has been watching/listening to his earlier music. He watched “beat it” and is obsessed. This was when MJ was still black. Well i showed him “bad” and he said “momma that isnt michael jackson, who is that woman?” I almost died of laughter. Granted hes only 5 but boy was it hard to explain it was MJ lol.

  • Chandler Bing

    Looks like “the kid” is very much his son. Oops!

    • gofyourself

      It must suck to have a song known round the world in which your father denies you.

      • liam nixon

        well yes but he did wanna get to the top and in the end he did and he donated to charity and help children because of that guilt. i still think he is a wonderful person.

  • Rae

    I really don’t like the quote from the panelist. That was very rude, disrespectful and highly uncalled for. Of course the other 3 are his kids! Blanket and B look alike and just like Michael. Just because Paris and Prince may look a little more like their mother, doesn’t mean shit. People expect kids to look exactly like their parents, or at least one of them, which is stupid. I myself look nothing like my parents and I’m not adopted.

      I mean…….. if you really want to get technical about it, we could go back to high school biology and draw up a Punnett Square and talk about allele dominance and phenotypes and genetic probability… or we could just agree that, despite being their father for all intents and purposes, MJ didn’t actually “father” those children.

    • ameliaBedelia76

      MJ is NOT the father of the three other children. Debbie pretty much admitted to that and so did one of his Dr’s that actually is the father of the older 2

    • anon

      Michael Jackson is NOT the father of any of those children. Stevie Wonder can see that. You are such a pathetic fool if you think those kids are his.

    • Jessica2248

      you’re right…he is the LEGAL father….biologically?? hmmmm????

    • ispeakthetruth101

      Mj is not! The biological father of those 3 kids. One of the sperm diners claimed Paris and she looks just like the sperm doners’ kids so she definitely doesn’t biologically belong to mj and neither do those other white kids. Because I have a son by a white guy n my son looks white not black like me. So whatever the father is the child will be as well n if those kids belonged to mj then they would be black because that’s what mj was. Mj’s skin disease called Vitiligo may have 80% turned his skin pigmentation white or pale, but it didn’t change his genes! He is a black man and those “3 kids of his” would have been black too! That’s all I have to say.

  • twelfthnight

    Where are the “lingering doubts” coming from? Has anyone LOOKED at this kid?! I didn’t need any tests to see that this is definitely his child.

  • Ashley

    I don’t buy it. And hardly a credible DNA test. Nice publicity stunt for an unknown artist who tries way to hard to look, sound, and act like MJ. He says he had nothing to do with it so he’s off the hook when it turns out to be BS.

  • Mrs C.

    I noticed he said he’s been taken care of very well. MJ must have known that was his son and supported him & the Mom.

  • Caitlin

    Looks like Billie Jean WAS your lover, MJ 😉
    (He even sounds like him!)

  • M

    I bet it’s Joe Jackson’s son…

    • accolade

      oh shit

  • anon

    I don’t believe he is Michael’s son, but it would be hilarious if they did a test on the three little fakes that claim they are real Jacksons.

  • David Broadnax

    If this is Michael’s Son he is Royality and Miki Howard should be treated as a Queen…Hope she is up to it!

  • Kara

    I feel sorry for the kid. Why didn’t Michael want him?

    • Veron

      Because he never wanted to be black,then how would he have allowed to father a black child that’s why he denied his own blood.

  • Jessica2248

    I don’t know if it’s MJ, but one of them Jackson boys is guilty!!

  • margojames

    If anything, Joe jackson is the most likely father since he was managing the career of this guy’s mother in the early 80’s. I don’t think MJ ever had sex with a woman.

  • snoop5

    he does look and sound more like him than anyone else, i know how to tell if its true…..tell him to moonwalk……LOL

  • LexiconD1

    Ha, I thought so.

    That face has seen it’s share of plastic surgery…

  • sherryc

    That boy looks exactly like that man poor thing denied

  • sherryc

    But a thing dam.pretty rude
