The son of 1980s R&B singer Miki Howard claims to be the illegitimate son of pop icon Michael Jackson. Brandon Howard, 31, will release DNA evidence today “proving” he is Michael’s son on a website that is affiliated with gossip blog TMZ.com. By coincidence, this bizarre report originated on TMZ. But other, more credible media outlets are picking up the story as if it is a fact.
Brandon, a struggling R&B singer, claims to have culled Michael’s DNA from a dental device. He claims the DNA proves he is Michael’s son.
Rapper Soulja Boy has been hit with a paternity suit by a young fan he allegedly impregnated 5 years ago. TMZ.com reports paternity docs were filed by one Diamond Shantaniece Mackey, who says Soulja Boy is the father of her 5-year-old son, Portlon. Yes, she named the child Portion.
As proof of their intimate romp in the sack, Diamond provided a photo taken in 2007 in a hotel room where she claims she took a pregnancy test which came back positive.
The photo supposedly shows her breaking the happy news to the expectant father — who doesn’t seem very pleased. The photo was taken before Soulja Boy’s fame soared to worldwide heights with his first hit single “Crank That”.
Rapper Slim Thug went on a Twitter tirade yesterday after his lawyer told him he was not the father of a gold digger’s son.
The 33-year-old Houston native was relieved that a DNA test was negative, but he was furious that his bank account and assets were frozen after the woman told debtors he was behind on child support payments.
Slim Thug, whose real name is Stayve Jerome Thomas, tweeted a photo of the boy flashing his middle finger.
Police interviews conducted with Cheryl Shepherd, the mother of Kansas City linebacker Jovan Belcher, reveal that Belcher argued with his girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins, about their daughter’s paternity before shooting her multiple times then turning the gun on himself.
“The mother believed that there was an issue over whether [Belcher] was the father,” said a source told The NY Post. “She said he [believed he] wasn’t necessarily the father of the child.”
