UPDATE: *This story is 100% false. For one thing, the logo for the DNA testing firm was from the film “Terminator Salvation.”
The two real questions are:
1. Was 80s teen star Corey Feldman, who was for some reason present at the ‘dog and pony’ show, just interested in more attention?
2. How is the news media going to approach breaking new in the future?
(PCM) DNA evidence has been revealed today that essentially proves that 31-year old singer Brandon Howard is indeed the love child of the late Michael Jackson. The sealed test results from an unnamed DNA testing facility in Washington, DC were opened up during a live press conference and revealed that the DNA from both Howard and Jackson were a 99.9999% match.
The DNA test was organized by the website FilmOn.com and they claim to have used extensive resources in order to prove that Howard is indeed Michael Jackson’s love child. Jackson was said to have had a love affair with Howard’s mother Miki Howard back in the early 80′s.
A rep from FilmOn.com revealed to TMZ.com that Jackson’s DNA was obtained from an orthodontic device once worn by the late singer. During the press conference, those on the panel were seemingly beginning to play devil’s advocate with each other, with some claiming that the public is going to demand more proof than just the DNA test results to accept Howard as the Jackson’s son.The test results were read by Dr. Joseph Goodman DDS and others on the panel included FilmOn CEO Alki David and Jackson’s long-time friend actor Corey Feldman.
If the DNA tests prove to be accurate than Howard will be the own officially known son of the late pop superstar, as none of Jackson’s other children have been officially DNA tested. Howard himself, has claimed that he, himself, has never claimed to be the son of Michael Jackson and had no intentions of pursuing the family’s estate. Furthermore in a statement from his manager Scott Broomfield, Howard goes on to say “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.”
We have to admit that Howard does bear quite the striking resemblance to Jackson, but without seeing further proof, such as an actual copy of the test results we are still sitting on the fence for the one, despite the 99.999% match that FilmOn.com is claiming.
What do you think? Is Howard the love child of Michael Jackson or is this all a huge publicity scam?
