Billy Jean was not his lover, and the kid is most definitely not his son. Claims by FilmOn.com and Alki David that B. Howard is the secret son of Michael Jackson are not just false, they were ridiculously and badly faked.
David claimed that he had somehow gotten ahold of an old dental appliance used by Jackson back in the day, and DNA gathered from that proved that Howard was the son of the King of Pop.
But TMZ did some digging and found out that the results David supplied as "proof" were totally faked — a fact given away by the logo on the so-called official word David gave them.
Turns out the labs David said he ran the test through — DNA Medical Lab out of Ireland — does not actually exist. Even more shockingly, when TMZ did a search on the lab's logo they found it matches an image used to promote the movie Terminator Salvation.
Wait, it gets better. When the site did a Google search for the term "DNA results," the hits turned up multiple sample documents in an easily downloadable format with the exact same format and numbers as the alleged Michael Jackson test.
Howard wants the world to know that he had nothing to do with the DNA test results or the publicity surrounding them, nor did he ever have any intention of filing a claim for cash against the Michael Jackson estate.
"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," he said in a press statement.
"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.
"To this day, I have never claimed to be Michael Jackson's son nor do I have any intention of pursuing the family's estate."
Of course, this does not mean that Howard is definitely not Jackson's son — his mother, Miki Howard, was repped by Joe Jackson in the early '80s, went by the name Billy at the time and has been the subject of parentage rumors for years. It just means that this test was a total fake.
The world will never know the truth.
