Friend Of Michael Jackson: "I Believe Paris Is My Daughter"

| Filed under: Michael Jackson

wenn612056lester.jpg

Former child actor and longtime friend of Michael Jackson, Mark Lester, believes he is the biological father of Paris Jackson!

Where's Maury Povich when you need him most????

Apparently in 1996, MJ asked the Oliver! star if he would donate his sperm to the King of Pop so Michael could finally start a family.

Says Lester: "It was a gift to him, no money was paid, it was something i was honored to do."

Mark claims he feels a "definite bonding" with Paris and is upset over the fact that he's "been excluded" from Jackson's children's lives, even though Lester is the godfather to all three kids.

"I want to have contact with her, Prince and Blanket regardless of whether any or all of them are mine," he says.

Lester believes his 15 year old daughter, Harriet, strongly resembles Paris with her pale skin and blue eyes, and is even willing to take a paternity test to back up the fact that he is Paris' father.

Hmmmmm.

Lester says he doesn't want to be "cut out" of the children's lives, but could this be another case of a distant acquaintance digging for MJ's gold?

What do U think???

    But of course. Why didn't I think of that?! *slaps hand on forehead*



  2. 2

    Anything to get those kids away from Joe Jackov and his circus of indentured child slaves is not a bad thing!



  3. 3

    why is everyone giving michael jizz, i meean kids r great whats wrong with micheals stuff?



  4. 4

    But of course. Why didn't I think of that?!

    *slaps hand on forehead*

    LOVE YOU PEREZO!



  6. 6

    Oh man.. they all start coming out of the wood works now… those poor kids!



  7. 7

    There's only one way to prove it.



  8. 8

    I could believe it. This guy seems like one of the few with any kind of integrity actually.



  9. 9

    i think.. he's high (:



  10. 10

    "Apparently in 1996, MJ asked the Oliver! star if he would donate his sperm to the King of Pop"

    That crazy tranny probably drank half of it!



  11. 11

    So, was somethin wrong with MJ's sperm? Or, did he just want a white baby?



  12. 12

    Could be him. I know all these idiots want a piece of the pie–but this is a possibility



  13. 13

    Paris with her pale skin
    ..

    What ???



  14. 14

    Re: tiggerchick5 – Apparently MJ had tried with his own sperm but it was not working.



  15. 15

    Michael Jackson left a huge mess with his passing regarding his children. This is what happens when you start giving your sperm away! I feel sorry for the children as they will one day realize how they were brought into this world. Fooling around with mother nature does come with some consequences.



  16. 16

    Ohh, I have pale skin and blue eyes. Is this dude going to appear and decide that I'm his daughter, too? Leave the kids alone.



  17. 17

    I only pity those children.



  18. 18

    she doesnt look anything like him…



  19. 19

    Re: pinkhotluv – People keep sayin that MJ hated the way he looked b/c he could only see his father inside of him. He didn't want any of his children to look like him. It's all crazy but I still love MJ.



  20. 20

    Actually, Macauly Caulkin is their godfather. Well, the two older children, anyway.



  21. 21

    Money money money money… MOOOOONEEEY



  22. 22

    I wish they'd just leave the kids be. Who cares if they're biologically michael's or not? It doesn't matter, they're in Katherine's custody now. Even before he died, Michael raised them like a father, and he is their father. Let it be continue to be like that.



  23. 23

    Good for them….I think he should get the dna test and if he is the father take care of the childrens…:D
    right?



  24. 24

    He was such a cute little boy! I still feel all three kids are half black half white plus there's white in the Jackson lineage. Prince's dark eyes and super blonde hair as an infant is totally right on for that mixture. Paris' skin to me seems olive and with pale blue eyes… again, makes sense.



  25. 25

    I'm glad people are starting to finally see the leeches that surronded themselves with Michael. If he was such a "friend" why in the world would he even say some stuff like this? Him being the father is hooblah, and even if he was the father why would he want to drag those children and the Jackson family through more crap. Michael couldn't get away from attention seeking, money hungry people when he was still alive, and it's sad to see that those same people are still lurking around. And I saw the picture of his daughter and the only similarity between her and Paris is their light eyes. Paris's eyes look just like Debbie Row's which look kind of greenish blue, and his daughters eyes are blue. A "friend" would just leave the children and family alone during this time.



  26. 26

    late! this was in the sunday papers this morning!



  27. 27

    why would bringing any more drama in these kids lives be in their best interest at this point? he's obviously looking for some ca$h.

  28. heyo! says – reply to this


    28

    omg what the fuck!? people are out for his fucking money and all there doing is hurting the kids… everyone should just leave the jackson family alone geezz …



  29. 29

    oh…and wouldn't that make this guy responsible for back child support? just saying….



  30. 30

    If he is the father, Debbie can't be the mom as Paris is darker than both of them but it is possible. They definitely can't be the father of the oldest boy because they both have blue eyes and he has dark brown eyes and darker skin. I dunno.



  31. 31

    THIS GUY LOOKS EAXCTLY LIKE THE DAUGHTER. WHY OR WHY DIDN'T MJ USE HIS OWN SPERM. WHY TOTALLY WHITE ARYAN? HHHMMMM. THE TRUTH WILL COME OUT ABOUT HIM BLEACHING THE OLDER BOY'S HAIR SOON, BY THE WAY. I AM SURPRISED NO ONE TALKS ABOU THAT. IT IS HIS NATURAL COLOR NOW. BUT AS A BABY MJ BLEACHED IT! THE KID HAD ROOTS SOMETIMES! THEN HE'D BE PLATINUM BLOND AGAIN! NOW, HIS HAIR IS DARK BROWN.



  32. 32

    Paris' skin is NOT pale. lol. They really are reaching. Two pale people (this guy and Debbie) can't magically have a tan child.



  33. 33

    i thought Macaulay Culkin wAS the godfather of all three kids



  34. 34

    um there's a really easy way to prove this.



  35. 35

    Goldigger, as usual



  36. 36

    can we say CRAZY did michael had problems having kinds or what? totally creepy



  37. 37

    The issue of paternity is getting stupid and out of hand. EVERYONE is the "father" of Michael's kids…everyone BUT Michael himself it seems!!!
    Give me a f*cking break - MICHAEL is the one who raised them up until his death. MICHAEL is the one who played with them, feed them, bathed them, laughed with them, disciplined them, and loved them, so who gives a sh*t if it was or wasn't his sperm that contributed to bringing them into this world??? He was the only father they knew and despite the fact that they are still mourning him, these leeches come out of nowhere and attempt to dispute the validity of Michael's paternity, causing more pain and grief to three young kids who don't deserve it.
    I hope Katherine Jackson takes a stand and tells all these wanna-be Daddies to F*CK OFF and leave the Jackson family to morun their loved one and put the pieces of their shattered lives together again…I'd tell Michael to "Rest in Peace" but will all this non-stop BS I think it's an impossible task :(



  38. 38

    OMG! Here we go! I'm sure they'll be more BS for years to come! Fasten your seatbelts everyone. It's going to be a bumpy ride.



  39. 39

    Ummm…different eye shape, different nose, different face shape, different coloring, different ears…need I go on?



  40. 40

    this is just outrageous.



  41. 41

    every average white guy looks like paris, but paris looks like debbie rowe, and she has changed alot since she was a baby in fact her hair is much darker than this guy and skin her skin is lamost olive, and no way deebie rowe as white as she is will produce this beautiful little girl with this fellow, if that was tru parin would look scandanavian ofr something. and his daughter looks nothing like paris…as matter of fact notice how blond his daughter hair is.
    whatever happen to doctor klien, was he knocked out of the deal…15 minute is up!
    i doubt michael would create children that were not his and leave his estate to them only to have the scavengers use them as money bags. i wonder how many more white guys will come foward?



  42. 42

    LETS SEE THE DNA



  43. 43

    I agree, get them out of the Jackson's 80 y/o parents' grips.



  44. 44

    LET THE PATERNITY TESTS BEGIN!!! let's see that's two in line: Klein and now this ya hoo the third spots is open who is next??????



  45. 45

    Oh, great.. another new daddy for his kids. If he were Michael Jacksons true and dear friend, he would know better than this. Its sickening and if he was concerned about MJ's kids.. then he wouldnt have done this shit.This would effect the kids so much. WHyyyyyyyy??!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Im so pissed. Leave the kids alone. Mark Lester fucked up this one. He is pissed cuz he havnt seen the kids for a long time now… didnt it cross his tiny mind that he family and kids are grieving??? It takes time to heal. I hope katherine bans him from seeing the kids all for good now.



  46. 46

    Jackson family attorney Londell McMillan adds that the story is just another unproven and meaningless claim, and the probate court has no reason to go against its finding that the late King of Pop is father to all three of his kids.

    "These are just merely claims with no legal standing whatsoever," McMillan tells PEOPLE.

    Sources say Lester, 51, best known for starring in the Oscar-winning classic Oliver!, and Jackson are longtime friends, and Lester did donate sperm for Michael – although one source says the timing doesn't line up for that sperm to have been used to conceive Paris.

    "He has known Michael for many years and his children play with Michael's children," says longtime Jackson family associate and past lawyer Brian Oxman. But in all the years he has known Lester, Oxman says Lester never indicated he was Paris's father.



  47. 47

    I don't care what anyone says - those kids look like Jackson. When they stood up there at the memorial service on stage, its the first thing I thought - each of them have distinctly 'Jackson' features… (pre surgery of course!).

    At the end of the day, despite where sperm may have come from - he was and always will be their 'father'. Jerking off into a test tube doesn't make you one.



  48. 48

    Well there is a way to find: test the DNA! My gut feeling is he's a very good candidate (if not for the good reasons). He definitely shares more facial features with Paris or for that matter with any of the kids, than, say, er… Michael Jackson himself.



  49. 49

    You know what is truly sad is now we see all the scumbags that MJ knew that are coming out of the woodwork's for 15 seconds of fame.
    I can see why MJ was so reclusive!!

    ***RIP MICHAEL JACKSON***



  50. 50

    I think MJ didn`t want to use his own sperm because he didn`t want to risk his kids have a different skin color. I wonder if this is true



  51. 51

    What could possibly possess an adult human being to make this sort of announcement in a public forum - especially since it is just speculation? Hey Mark - did you ever, for even one moment - stop to think what sort of effect this will have on the children in question? If you have suspicions about the parentage of your "friend" Michaels' children why not deal with it privately instead of this disgraceful grab for publicity? There is no justification Shame on you.
    Under California Law these children were born during a legal marriage and the father is therefore the legal parent .
    It does not matter if Mr.Lester's statement is true. In life people tried to remain famous by either being a friend and or foe of MJ.
    If this statement is an attempt to remain in contact with these children then his poor judgement in making this public is a good reason to keep them away from him.



  52. 52

    i loved michael loved his songs.



  53. 53

    I doubt Mark Lester is the father of Paris, and his timing is very insensitive. Paris is only 11yrs years old, has lost her dad Michael Jackson who she obviously loved deeply. Now Mark Lester stabs Michael in the back, and along with the media causes his 3 children a great deal of harm. Stop abusing these 3 innocent children, they maybe the children of the legendary Michael Jackson but they have not chosen to be famous. Just leave them alone, whatever you think about their parentage.



  54. 54

    Just because Lester said that he donated sperm doesn't make it a fact. He can say whatever he wants because he knows that Katherine will never agree to him doing a DNA test because legally it doesn't matter who the biological father is. ….And just because he said that Mike asked for his sperm doesn't necessarily make it true either. He knows that legally it makes no difference if he's the biological father or not, so he also knows that the family have no reason to agree to a DNA test. That means that he can say whatever he wants without it being proven otherwise.



  55. 55

    and btw, paris looks just like Debbie but way darker. she got the blue eyes, lips and chin from debbie rowe… and NOT from mark lester



  56. 56

    First off, Mark wasn't and isn't a distant aquaintence but was one of Michael's longest standing friendships. Secondly, if what he says is true I can understand how he could be considered that he'd never have any contact with the kids again especially if he feels he may be the father of any of them now that Michael is gone. Cut the guy some slack! If what he says is true then he should come forward!



  57. 57

    Re: minaahm – "In life people tried to remain famous by either being a friend and or foe of MJ."

    So True ;)



  58. 58

    This is fucking gay. ATTENTION SEEKER!!!!!



  59. 59

    Just do an DNA test and call it a day! When Mark Lester was younger his hair was very blonde like his daughter. I have the movie Oliver for my kids. If anything the son looks more like him. Not Paris. He is already Godfather to the children so that makes them a part of his life. But, for the kids sake it's for them to know who they are. Is it Klein or Lester or whoever! I would DNA
    in a heartbeat! Bet Debbie Rowe knows who the father is. Try asking her.



  60. 60

    Re: Dopster – the thing is that its ONLY speculation. he said that he might be paris biological father. he isnt sure… he MIGHT is her daddy. why go to the tabloids and say such a thing when he isnt even sure.

    wtf is that about? that is discusting for him to say publically if he had any concern for Paris
    he wouldnt have done that. She just lost her father for GOD sake -
    If he REALLY had concernes about Paris he could have got an
    attorney to contact Katherines attorney privatley ..

    But to go public with this will only be devastating to Michael's children whether
    it is true or not _ doesnt matter _ but to publically announce this - Is Discusting on Marks part and he isnt eve sure about this. thats the most sickening thing.



  61. 61

    Sadly people think biology makes you a parent. As we all know from our daily encounters, it doesn't. Michael Jackson is the father of these children. End of story. He was the person there every day every night. It doesn't matter who the sperm or the eggs belonged to. It's who is there at the end of the day.



  62. 62

    oh please… at the end of the day those 3 children know who their dad is, paris said he was the best father we could imagine… the only people this mark guy is going to upset is the children.
    michael raised those 3 children since all 3 was 1 day old, prince, paris and blanket know that and so does the rest of the world…
    no amount of money hungry people will ever break the bond between michael and the children which is why im even more pleased that katherine has got custody and that they will be raised with the the jackson family where they belong…
    all the mark lesters in the world will never replace their wonderfull father, the same way nobody could replace our king.. he was truly one of a kind, in his fans hearts and im sure his childrens hearts too..
    why cant people just leave michael and his children alone!!
    im beginning to wonder if michael really did have any TRUE friends, its so sad how all his life people have backstabbed him and continue to do so even now!!



  63. 63

    If it is true then Shut Up!!

    For the sake of your daughter - if she is - Shut the hell Up Publically!!



  64. 64

    with that pelvic action, trust me michael did not shoot blanks! all his children are his, and the money is not going to any of yous~



  65. 65

    This was probably the closest man to Michael - whether his family likes it or not. Michael's said this man was the godfather. They've spent time together as paparazzi photos have shown. If any two people have the right to say anything, it'd be this guy and Grace the nanny. And the Jackson family are trying to cut out both of them for some reason. The two most responsible and close adults to those children and Katherine is keeping them away - probably afraid to have them confide that they don't want to be with Katherine. Seriously, what child wants to be raised by an 80 year old woman who can barely move around, and who has a child beater around?



  66. 66

    GOLDIGGER THE KID AINT YOURS, LOOK SHE IS DARK COPLEXION ALRIGHT, HER HAIR IS DARK AMD SHE LOOKS NOTHING LIKE YOUR UGLY DAUGHTER! LEAVE MJ'S KIDS ALONE, IF YOU SHOT A LOAD FOR MICHAEL I DON'T THINK HE SAVED IT!



  67. 67

    Re: imsoregistered – Please. Grace cut the jackson family out and Michael fired her in december 2008. Grace controlled and manipulated Michael. Fans and longtime associate of MJ have both winessed it. there are many disturbing stories about Grace.



  68. 68

    Maybe! What a Mess Michael left!



  69. 69

    HEY PEREZ ….WHY DON'T YOU TELL ANYTHING ABOUT LARRY NIMMER ? THE UNTOLD STORY OF NEVERLAND AND HOW THE MEDIA DON'T WANNA PAY ANY ATTENTION ON THAT ? I CAN TELL YOU !!!! BECAUSE IT'S THE TRUTH ABOUT MJ AND THAT DOES NOT SALES ONLY DIRTY THING'S THAT WILL SALES …… ASSHOLES ALL OF THEM



  70. 70

    WOW!! If they are the father and they can prove it, then they have rights, but in his will he gave the kids to his mother!!



  71. 71

    I HAVE A BETTER CHANCE OF GETTING SOME OF MICHAELS MONEY THAN ANY OF THESE GUYS CLAIMING THE PATERNITY OF HIS KIDS. HIS MONEY GOES TO MOMMA KIDS AND CHARITIES!



  72. 72

    you know all this speculation is bullshit
    i had a friends little baby girl stay with me for a week last year, and when i took her out to the shops and park people just assumed she was my child, one lady came up to us and said "my, dont you look like your mummy" and i am no relation atall to the child!!!
    then at the park another lady says "i can see where she gets her hair from"
    last week everyone was saying dr klien was the father!!
    whos next i wonder???
    michael jackson had 3 children who clearly adored him… the mark lesters of world will never change that.



  73. 73

    OH PLEASE, Why can't people accept that Michael is their father? Because they are more fair skinned? Some children who are bi-racial do not show features of the other race. Its just the way it is. Sometimes Its obvious, and sometimes its not. They are show distinct features of Michael ( pre surgery of course). Paris is very olive toned. She is not pale at all. If he is the father, then Debbie couldn't be the mother, simple. She does actually look bi-racial.
    But does it really matter? Michael raised them. He fed them, read them stories, and put them to bed. He was their only parent they ever had. He was the only one that they looked up to. and to them, Michael will always be their daddy, and they will miss him everyday. So lets leave it at that, and let those poor children grieve. They don't need this crap, they are going through enough.



  74. 74

    Can someone just get these children out of the spotlight and into a good, safe, loving home where they can just be kids again!? Good grief.. Such beautiful children too :'(



  75. 75

    i wonder how much he got paid for saying paris MIGHT be his?
    ANYTHING FOR MONEY!!!!!!!!



  76. 76

    OMG michael has some of the WORST friends,i eman seriusly everyone is coming out the woodworks now that MJ isn't here to defend himself, its' sick. i hope the ids aren't hearing any of this.

    paris soedn't even have pale skin, she looks like she can be mixed. michael and debbie said they're their kids so where are all these peeps coming from and why didn't they ask michael when he was alive. this is CRAZY



  77. 77

    no. they dont look anything alike.

    and great paris really needs to be spererated from her brothers and the people she's known for all her life….perfect

    her real family. not the guy who just came to babysit.

    and isnt culking godfather??? hahaha mess up their lester boy!

    i honestl dont think they look anything alike. his daughter is way to pale to have a tan sister. paris doesnt look a thing like him.

    next. go down to the strip club with klein cause your not getting any of them.



  78. 78

    how many people did michael make godfather to his children? originally, Elizabeth Taylor and Macaulay Culkin were posted about being the godparents. Now it seems there are hundreds of godparents. matter of fact, once, I was at a performance of boys town and during intermission, Michael Jackson stood up, surprising us all and told us he was so happy with the play that he want to make us godparents to the 3 little monsters.



  79. 79

    SHAME…. look at what money does to people

    i believe those are michael's kids.black people come in all colors



  80. 80

    Re: the squirrel – Well said. People are soo fucking retarded. Whenever I first seen a pic of those kid's w/ MJ when he was still living, the thought that those kid's were not his didn't even cross my mind. I knew that some biracial children have come out looking completely white. I have seen some that don't look biracial at all and look black. It can happen people! It can happen!



  81. 81

    Re: yeah.right – Lol at #66.

    Re: MJ ROCKS!!! – "ANYTHING FOR MONEY!!!!!!!!"

    WOULD LIE FOR YOU,
    WOULD DIE FOR YOU,
    EVEN SELL MY SOUL TO THE DEVIL
    ;)
    Michael sure was right about that huh?



  83. 83

    this is bs. he also said that he didnt tell his family about that he might be paris bio-daddy. riiiiiight!! he is a loser, famous once upon a time,and only relevant when mj is the subject. a real father would've waited. would've asked mj when she was born if he was the father. would've told his wife and his family (which he did NOT do), IF he cared about the kids, he could've waited for mj to be put to rest, the autospyreport to come out, the tox to be confirmed. it hasn't been that long. i think paris is more concerned grieving for her father than talking to mark lester.



  84. 84

    '

    I think MJ gave those kids the same drugs he was taking to make his own skin fair- he did everything he could to not have 'black' babies…..

  85. 85

    It's kind of funny how the media is listening to everyone but the REAL parents. Both Debbie Rowe and Michael have said that Paris and Prince are their children. A lie came out shortly after Michael's passing saying Debbie said that Michael was not the biological father, Perez even put that crap on his site. The truth is that Debbie Rowe has yet to come out and say anything of that nature, honestly she has yet to come out and say anything since Michael's passing, she never even talked to the press while Michael was alive. The only thing that I have heard come out of Debbie Rowe's own mouth about those kids are that they are Michael's children, and Paris was given that name b/c she was conceived in Paris, yeah that's right conceived by Michael. I wish people would just leave them all alone.

    ~Michael Jackson

    Michael was proud of being a black man…..



  88. 88

    hes a scumbag..plain and simple



  89. 89

    Re: minaahm Gee, Michael's family said MICHAEL alienated him. How silly it is to think of enablers around him to trash the one person who's closest to him! Michael also had fired her several times before and then asked her to come back again… the best disturbing story, a yearbook from the 80's drooling over Michael. Flip open my aunt's yearbook and voila! The same lines for half the girls in that book. No, we must trust all the enablers stories about her while she was the only caretaker to the cash mac… err, children…

    Re: hateliars Traditionally, you'd have one man and one woman. So it'd be this guy and Liz. In some traditions, you can have 3 of each sex. The original idea was to ensure the Godparents would take the children in the event of a death and down the line. That's what a godparent's role used to be.



  91. 91

    OW ANT MARK ….YOU ARE A JOKER NOTHING MORE NOTHING LESS ……I THINK IS ALL BS …..AND YOU HAVE YOUR MONEY FROM WORLD OF THE NEWS …..LIKE A SAY ….A JOKER ….A BIG ONE



  92. 92

    unfortunately Prince michael might have vitiligo, these people in america are going to learn a lesson the hard way, their ignorance is going to be rubbed all over their faces, the news tomorrow will probably be of this rubbish being claimed now, i can just hear nancy grace marinating in this gossip! first the doctor, now this has been, but the truth will stand, and all the lies will fall



  93. 93

    i'm sure michael k. is flattered.



  94. 94

    FIRST OFF….HIS KID LOOKS NOTHING LIKE PARIS.

    SECOND…EXPLAIN PARIS' SKIN TONE THEN. SHE IS MULATTO.

    The real parents need to be found. If they want something, let them have it. If they want their kids, let them take it to court. Letting this stand will only set a precedent for the legal buying and selling of children by the rich with little regard for actual parentage

    I'm sure that Michael Jackson received sperm from quite a few guys but none of it had to do with procreation.

    bs! he doesn't even look like her

    I see another Anna Nichole Smith thing happening here! Who's the baby daddy?
