Brandon Howard, also known as B Howard, was said to have been the illegitimate son of legend Michael Jackson. Even DNA test results came back postive … Or did they? Read on for the facts.
1. Howard Claims That a DNA Test Has Proven He’s Michael Jackson’s Son
It’s hard to deny that Brandon Howard has a Michael Jackson quality about him and looks extremely similar to MJ in his youthful years. Howard’s voice also is quite comparable to MJ’s in the above video. Regardless of this, however, there are apparently test results that show a 99.9% chance that Brandon Howard is indeed Michael Jackson’s son.
2. The Test Results are Reportedly “Bogus”

A man named Alki David has told TMZ that he had actually obtained Michael Jackson’s dental impression at an auction.
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.
Whatever the case, the results are reportedly fake. TMZ writes:
The DNA test results that allegedly prove 31-year-old Brandon Howard is Michael Jackson’s son are BOGUS … in fact, so bogus … the logo from the so-called DNA testing lab was ripped from Terminator Salvation.
Apparently, TMZ did their own investigating and found the results to be completely fake. This is how the news source made the discovery:
TMZ obtained a photo of the DNA doc — allegedly from a testing facility in Ireland called “DNA Lab.” We searched high and low but could find no such generic DNA lab in Ireland. Skeptical, we investigated — a simple Google image search of “DNA results” turns up a bunch of sample docs with the same exact easily-stealable format as the one we got. But the coup de grace — we then Google image searched “DNA logo” and the first result … literally … was the same DNA pic used in the “DNA Lab” logo.
3. B Howard Claims He’s Not Involved With Any of This
In an online video Brandon Howard claims that he was not behind any of the recent speculation that he is Michael Jackson’s illegitimate son. Howard says he never contacted TMZ and that he has no plans to sue the Michael Jackson estate, though it was reported that those were his intentions. Howard also says that he did take a DNA test, but it was not for the purposes that the media is claiming.
4. Corey Feldman Was Present for the Unveiling of the “DNA Test Results”
When the “answers” came in, a company called Filmon.com and its owner Alki David opened the sealed test results and Corey Feldman was present. His reaction to hearing that Howard was MJ’s son seemed shocked, saying, “Let me see that!” It’s unclear if Feldman was behind the alleged hoax as well.
Corey Feldman was said to once be a close friend of Michael Jackson’s, but later testified against him in his molestation trial. Wikipedia reports him saying:
I started looking at each piece of information, and with that came this sickening realization that there have been many occurrences in my life and in my relationship to Michael that have created a question of doubt.
Feldman then added:
He did real damage in my overall life. I was a 12-year-old boy who was hurt by his family and ignored by people at school. Michael would sit and talk to me for hours and he would listen. Then he would get bored. The biggest thing that Michael’s done to children is befriending the ones that are in need and then abandoning them.

Apparently, Michael Jackson isn’t the only singer in the family? According to TMZ:
Brandon’s mom — Micki 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.”
