Brandon Howard and Michael Jackson
Michael Jackson has a secret son after DNA test claimed to prove the “Billie Jean” star had a secret son.
Michael Jackson is alleged to have a 31-year-old lovechild after DNA evidence claimed to prove the superstar had a secret son. He is believed to be the product of an affair between Michael Jackson and his mother Miki Howard after the pair met in 1982.
DNA from Brandon, who is also a singer called B Howard, is claimed to be “as close a match as possible” to that of the King of Pop’s. Dr. Joseph Goodman, a Beverly Hills dental surgeon, revealed the alleged results, and claimed he obtained a sample of Jackson’s DNA from a dental device that had belonged to the “Thriller” singer and was purchased by Goodman at auction.
B Howard was branded as the “reincarnation of Michael Jackson” due to his strong resemblance to the King of Pop. Click here to see for yourself.
Jackson estate lawyer Howard Weitzman however cast doubt on the results.
He said: “We’ve never even heard from him.”
“Any deadline for claiming to be Michael’s child has long since passed.”
In a statement released by Howard through manager Scott Broomfield, he said: “To my fans, family, and friends, despite recent allegations, I did not authorise the testing of my DNA to be compared to that of the late Michael Jackson.”
“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.”
However the allegations were dismissed by American artist Augie Johnson who said he is the real father of Brandon Augie, who was one of the backing singers on Jackson’s 1979 breakthrough album, Off The Wall.
The 65-year-old was in a long-term relationship with Miki and said he considers Brandon to be his natural son.
Augie, who had two sons with his former partner 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.”
“The first time Brandon will have met the Jacksons is when he was three and Nicholas was one and we went up to Jermaine’s office.
Augie said: “Miki was never romantically involved with Michael. He didn’t even know her.”
He said he had spoken to his ex partner on Thursday, adding: “Miki thinks Brandon is losing his mind.”
The paternity of Jackson’s three children, Prince, 17, Paris, 15, and 12-year-old Blanket, have always been surrounded by controversy.
