Michael Jackson's Brothers Say Brandon Howard Is Not His Son
A representative for Jackson's brothers says that a test result which allegedly proved Howard's DNA matched to Jackson's is 'unfounded hearsay.'
Michael Jackson's brothers
have spoken up following a report of DNA test which allegedly proved
that a 31-year-old singer called Brandon Howard a.k.a. B Howard is the King of Pop's son. A representative for Jackson's brothers has told TMZ that the DNA test is an "unfounded hearsay."
Sources close to the family additionally say that Jackson, who passed
away in 2009 at the age of 50, never mentioned about having other
children other than Paris, Prince Jackson and Blanket. Another source
explained that Jackson's brothers met Howard once at an event in 2012, but he did not claim that he was a relative.
Howard is the son of singer Miki Howard. She was managed by Joe Jackson in the 1980s. However, the brothers
said that Joe did not say anything about their work in the past. They
believe that Joe would have said something, especially after Michael
In other news, online TV channel FilmOn.com has commented on allegations
that the DNA result was fake. In response to TMZ's allegations that a
logo featured on the result was taken from the internet, Alki David
said, "The logo was made by the DNA agency to make it look pretty. Lab
documents are not pretty by nature." David also said that the results
were private and were not supposed to be revealed to public.
Previously, it was reported that the test was taken by a facility in
Ireland. However, the site alleged that the said facility, "DNA Lab",
could not be found.
Howard himself has released a statement in which he said he "never
claimed to be Michael Jackson's son nor do I have any intention of
pursuing the family's estate." Howard's alleged real father Augie also
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." He added, "Before me, Miki wasn't with anyone else. She
didn't even know Michael at that time."
