Has the ‘Billie Jean’ mystery been solved? After pop star Brandon Howard claimed to be Michael Jackson’s son, an alleged DNA test provided a positive result.
Brandon Howard might be Michael Jackson‘s long lost son. Who is the mother and how is this even possible?
Brandon Howard Is Michael Jackson’s Son
Michael Jackson could have a 31-year-old son. Up and coming singer Brandon Howard, who has previously been called the “reincarnation” of the King of Pop, was revealed by TMZ in the early hours of Thursday, March 6. Brandon allegedly already had plans to go public with DNA results proving that he was the iconic pop stars son, but TMZ beat him to it.
According to DNA test results provided in a video, there is a 99.9% chance that Brandon is in fact Michael’s son. However, TMZ appears skeptical of the results because they were provided by Alkiviades “Alki” David and his production company, FilmOn. Interestingly enough, Michael’s good friend Corey Feldman was also involved in announcing the DNA results.
Brandon spoke out about the reports in a video posted to his official Facebook page, “Number one, I did not call TMZ or anything like that. Didn’t put out a story, nothing. Number two, I’ve never self-proclaimed to be Michael Jackson’s son. Number three, I’m definitely not suing the estate. I’ve been taken care of very well. Number four, it is true I did do a DNA test but it had nothing to do with any of this.”
Brandon’s mother is Miki Howard, a gospel singer who not only toured with Michael but was also represented by his father, Joe Jackson.
Is Miki Howard the Real ‘Billie Jean’?
According to reports, Brandon was born one year before Michael wrote and released his hit song, “Billie Jean.” Making matters even weirder, Brandon’s mother Miki supposedly went by the nickname “Billy.” So, could this mean that the Billie Jean mystery has finally been resolved nearly thirty years later? It’s possible.
However another singer, Augie Johnson, who sang on Michael’s “Off The Wall” album, has already claimed to be the biological father of Brandon and has even agreed to a DNA test.
