His name is Brandon Howard — the son of singer Miki Howard, whom Joe Jackson represented back in the 1980s.
Sources close to Brandon tell us, Miki and MJ met in 1982 and Brandon was born soon after.
As for why B Howard is so sure he’s MJ’s son … our sources say he somehow acquired DNA from an old orthodontic device worn by Michael … it’s unclear how he got hold of it, but we’re told the test results show a match.
The results will be unveiled Thursday on FilmOn.com.
Estate lawyer Howard Weitzman tells TMZ, “We’ve never even heard from him,” adding, “Any deadline for claiming to be Michael’s child has long since passed.”
As previously reported by NewsOne, after a highly publicized trial in November 2011, Conrad Murray was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter for administering a fatal dose of the anesthetic propofol to Jackson in his home, allegedly to help with his insomnia.
He was released early from jail after serving two years of a four-year sentence for his role in Jackson’s death.
Jackson is the father of three known children: Paris-Michael Katherine Jackson, Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr. and Prince Michael “Blanket” Jackson II.
