Brandon Howard (seen above), whose mother is pop singer Miki Howard, plans to present groundbreaking DNA evidence proving that he’s the late Michael Jackson’s son today, Thursday March 6th, according to reports from gossip site TMZ.
Sources close to the singer believe Howard is Jackson’s son and state that he shares an undeniable musical and physical resemblance to MJ. Miki Howard told TMZ that Brandon Howard — artist name B. Howard — is the result of a romance between the her and Michael back in 1982. Brandon was born in 1983, a year later.
Once Howard provides the DNA proof to the Jackson royal bloodline, Howard reportedly plans to cash in on the late singer’s estate which was recently estimated as holding $17 million cash and earning $600 million in revenue, according to documents filed in a California court.
Jackson estate lawyer Howard Weitzman told TMZ, “We’ve never even heard from him,” when asked about Howard’s claim. He added that “any deadline for claiming to be Michael’s child has long since passed.”
Miki Howard, now age 53, says she has three children in all, two from the 1980s from former “Side Effect” lead singer, Augie Johnson, and Brandon from the relationship with Michael according to her online biography.
In a 2011 interview with eurweb, B. Howard brushed off a reporter’s pressing that he has “an uncanny, down-right-freaky resemblance” to MJ. “Who hasn’t been inspired by Michael and the Jackson brothers?” he replied. “I just do what’s naturally in my heart, and that’s what comes out.”
On his Facebook page he also gives a nod to his similarities to the late singer, writing: “Audiences will quickly see similarities between he and Michael Jackson; first in the fact that he was directly influenced by the Jackson’s and Miki Howard, secondly with vocals, dance choreography, songwriting and stage production.”
