Well, well, well! Even as a kid I had my suspicions about the hit song Billie Jean and fully expected some girl to pop outta the woodwork to refute his denials but when It never happened (I waited some cool 5 years to hear that news) I shrugged it off and focused on other gossip.
Joe has been portrayed by the family as the villain but if it was Michael issuing a disclaimer all those years ago, then methinks Michael is most probably the father. The Jackson kids all bear a phenomenal resemblance to each other yea? (a pair of them Jermain and someone else actually look like twins to me) but to me this dude does not just bear that generic look, he particularly looks like Michael. He certainly resembles MJ a whole lot more than the ones who currently bear the family name.
Also the mother looks like she would have gone for MJ not JJ. They are closer in age and Michael was at the peak of his career when the Billie Jean song came out.
Or maybe its just wishful thinking on my part? By the way, I want to see pictures of the Jackson patriarch when he was younger. I am still trying to figure out how he produced such lovely kids!
The test first made an alleged link to the King of Pop himself, but a source close to the Daily News said the Jackson patriarch is actually the father of Howard, who is believed to be referenced in Michael Jackson’s 1982 hit ‘Billie Jean’ with the line: ‘The kid is not my son.’

At first, the DNA test allegedly showed that aspiring singer Brandon Howard is Michael Jackson’s son, but a source said the father is actually Jackson patriarch Joe Jackson.
It could have been the Jackson Six.
Organizers of an off-the-wall DNA test claimed on Thursday to have proven that Michael Jackson is the biological father of singer Brandon Howard.
But a source close to the Jackson clan told the Daily News that it was Joe Jackson — the King of Pop’s pop — who is the actual father.

Joe Jackson may actually be the father of Brandon Howard.
Howard, who is believed to have been born in 1981, has long been rumored to be the child Jackson referenced in the 1982 hit “Billie Jean” with the line: “The kid is not my son.”
The Jackson family has long been aware of speculation that Howard is Michael Jackson’s son. They just don’t buy it.
“I’ve been hearing for years that Brandon is Joe’s son,” the source said.
Brandon Howard, reportedly born in 1981, is allegedly the child referenced in Michael Jackson’s 1982 hit ‘Billie Jean.’
Attempts to reach Howard, who does not have a birth certificate, were not immediately successful. His mother, 53-year-old pop singer Miki Howard, was reportedly repped by Jackson family patriarch Joe Jackson in the 1980s. She also appeared in the 1993 movie “Poetic Justice” with Janet Jackson.
The genetic mystery — is he Jacko’s son or his brother — reached a bizarre peak at a press conference in Beverly Hills on Thursday that was organized by shipping heir Alki David and streamed live on his FilmOn.com website. Brandon Howard wasn’t present for the hyped announcement but confirmed in a Facebook post that he gave a DNA sample for the test.
Dr. Joseph Goodman, a Beverly Hills dental surgeon, revealed the results, and claimed he obtained a sample of Michael Jackson’s DNA from a dental device that had belonged to the “Thriller” singer. He purchased the device at auction.
Brandon Howard was allegedly conceived during a dalliance between the King of Pop’s dad and singer Miki Howard, 53, a source tells the Daily News.
Goodman pulled a piece of paper from an envelope and said the test showed the “probability” of the King of Pop being a parental match was “99.9 percent.”
“I think we have the proof,” Goodman declared.
Despite Goodman’s claim, the paperwork did not include the names of the test subjects or the name of a testing lab, but David told viewers such tests are typically done anonymously and that other information was redacted as a security safeguard.

Brandon Howard provided a DNA sample for the test.
“I’m sure that there will be doubters and there will be haters and there will be those who create, build a controversy, but it is what it is,” David said.
Jackson estate lawyer Howard Weitzman didn’t see things that way, however.
“It sounds like a fraud to me,” Weitzman told the Daily News later Thursday.
Brandon Howard has admitted Michael Jackson is a big inspiration for his work, but he claimed Thursday he had nothing to do with David’s press conference.
“I’ve never self-proclaimed to be Michael Jackson’s son,” he said in a Facebook video. “I’m definitely not suing the estate. I’m taken care of very well. And also, I make my own cash, OK?” (Dee says: Right on bro! Thats the spirit!)
Former child actor Corey Feldman, who was pals with Michael Jackson during his moonwalking heyday, attended David’s press conference and told The News he believes The Gloved One is the father.
“Personally, I do, because I’ve never met two people who were more alike in my life,” Feldman, 42, said.
