This 31-year-old man claims to be Michael Jackson’s son


DNA evidence might be able to prove that a man by the name of Brandon Howard is the son of Michael Jackson.

Brandon is the son of singer Miki Howard, who was represented by Joe Jackson back in the 1980s. Miki and Michael first met in 1982, and we can assume were involved romantically, and soon after a child was born – or so the story goes.

Brandon, now 31, says he’s “acquired DNA from an old orthodontic device worn by Michael” and he’ll be revealing the results, which he claims are a positive match, today on He was raised in Cleveland but now lives in Miami, and it isn’t exactly clear why he is now coming forward with this shocking accusation. Aside from the glimmer of fame attached with his supposed famous daddy, he’s also looking to get a chunk of MJ’s estate.

Howard Weitzmen, Jackson’s official estate lawyer, told TMZ that no one has ever heard of him. "Any deadline for claiming to be Michael's child has long since passed,” he said.

Brandon, or B. Howard as he's known, has been perusing a music career of his very own. Check out his music video from 2011 for “Dancefloor,” which is very reminiscent of MJ’s style and sound.
