Michael Jackson’s ‘secret son’ Brandon Howard plans to release an album, his voice sounds just like King of Pop!

Michael Jackson is alleged to have a lovechild after DNA evidence claimed to prove the superstar had a secret son – but who is he?

Brandon Howard is a 31-year-old singer, songwriter and producer who goes by the stage name of B Howard.

He’s the son of 53-year-old singer Miki Howard, whom Jackson family patriarch Joe Jackson represented back in the 1980s.
Miki met Jackson in 1982 and her son was born soon after.

In 2010 Brandon released his debut album Genesis in a deal with Universal Records Japan, and according to his LinkedIn profile he’s worked with a long list of artists, including Ne-Yo, Chris Brown, Ciara, Vanessa Hudgens and Jason Derulo.

In a short video clip posted after the claims came to light, Brandon says: “I’ve never self-proclaimed to be Michael Jackson’s son.

“I’m definitely not suing the estate, I’ve been taken care of very well and also I make my own cash, OK?”.

He adds: “I did a DNA test but it had nothing to do with any of this, I swear on my life. I’m done.

“Wherever you guys go from here it is what it is. Whatever the DNA test results come out as, it is what it is.”

Yesterday, news emerged that Brandon underwent tests which supposedly revealed a 99.9999 per cent match to the Thriller star.

DNA from Brandon is claimed to be “as close a match as possible” to that of the King of Pop’s.

Jackson estate lawyer Howard Weitzman however cast doubt on the results.

He said: “We’ve never even heard from him.

“Any deadline for claiming to be Michael’s child has long since passed.”

In a statement released by Howard through manager Scott Broomfield, he said: “To my fans, family, and friends, despite recent allegations, I did not authorise the testing of my DNA to be compared to that of the late Michael Jackson.

“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.”

Owner of FilmOn.TV, Greek Coca-Cola heir Alkiviades David said he managed to obtain Jackson’s DNA from a Beverly Hills doctor who had a dental impression from the legendary performer.

Despite it being 30 years old David claimed it still contained his DNA.

However the allegations were dismissed by American artist Augie Johnson who said he is the real father of Brandon Augie, was one of the backing singers on Jackon’s 1979 breakthrough album, Off The Wall, and went on form the band, Side Effect.

The 65-year-old was in a long-term relationship with Miki and said he very much considers Brandon to be his natural son.

Augie, who had two sons with his former partner, Brandon and Nicholas said: “I Know Brandon’s my son. I was there in the delivery room, I have the pictures of him being born. I got the records, I got everything.

“Before me, Miki wasn’t with anyone else. She didn’t even know Michael at that time. But you know what, I love my son and he can do whatever he likes. I’m not tripping on this.

“I want Brandon to have a successful career.”

Augie admitted Brandon did meet Jackson, who died aged 50 in June 2009 from a fatal dose of Propofol, when he was a little boy.

He made regular trips to the star’s Neverland home, with his mother or Michael’s brother Jermaine, and made friends with the Jackson family children.

“The first time Brandon will have met the Jacksons is when he was three and Nicholas was one and we went up to Jermaine’s office.

“He met Michael a couple of times at his ranch. Miki took them there and sometimes Jermaine took them”

Augie said: “Miki was never romantically involved with Michael. He didn’t even know her.”

He said he had spoken to his ex partner on Thursday, adding: “Miki thinks Brandon is losing his mind.”

The paternity of Jackson’s three children, Prince, 17, Paris, 15, and 12-year-old Blanket, have always been surrounded by controversy.

The Mirror revealed last year how his friend, Oliver star Mark Lester claimed he was the father of the two eldest.
