Alleged Father Of MJ's Children Speaks Out

| Filed under: Michael Jackson


The godfather to Michael Jackson's children and alleged biological father is now saying he may be the father to all of the Jackson children!

Mark Lester appeared on NBC's Today Show Friday morning with his daughter, Harriet, to show the similarities between her and Paris Jackson, and to state that he may be the father of Prince and Blanket as well!

"There's a possibility that one, or all - very unlikely all - but one of those kids may be mine," Lester told Today's Matt Lauer.

He explained to Lauer that Michael was "very nervous" about going through with the "act" of creating a child, so he jokingly said to Jackson, "Look Michael, if you don't want to do it I could do it for you."

What a pal!

Lester continued: "When I gave it I made a decision that that was it. I had given something as a gift and I didn't want anything I return for it. That was it. End of story."

So why is he talking everyone's ear off about it now???

Mark claims that the story was going to break in the UK, and he would rather talk about his sperm donation himself than have the rumors continue to escalate in the press.

Even if Lester is the biological father of the Jackson children, he still considers Paris, Blanket and Prince Michael's children.

"I must stress though that those kids are Michael Jackson's children - they are with the family, they are in the place where they should be," said Lester.

Mark hopes that once the media circus dies down, he'll be able to "remain in contact" with the children because his children get along "so well" with the Jackson kids and would like to "remain as friends."

Lester doesn't seem so $$$$$$-hungry after all! Or is he???

    Perhaps time he presented some DNA evidence instead of whoring himself out to media for publicity?
    If he is so sure, he better go to court if he want people to believe him.

  2. 2

    one day those kids are going to wonder "who is my real daddy" with all the crap on the news and all the psyhco women claiming to be the real mommy, maybe it's good this guy is coming out to say he might be the sperm donor, it does'nt really matter, michael jackson raised these kids so he's the real father!

  3. 3

    I call that bullshit, he just wants his name in the media. How could 2 white people made a tan child? It just doesn't work that way.

  4. 4

    And he should be able to be in contact with the kids… he is their godfather and a friend of the family. Whether or not he is the biological father is something else completely….maybe MJ's kids will want to know later in life.. but he was obviously a very good friend to MJ to even offer to help in the first place. He's never given the impression that he's after money.

  5. heyo! says – reply to this


    the 3rd one looks the same as michael so hes obviously a lair.

  6. 6

    Yeah what a friend he is. Coming out of the woods to get his 2 seconds of shame. Everyone and their mother is claiming crap now that Michael is not here to defend himself. Those are MICHAEL'S children so this "friend" should keep his mouth shut. Why would he want to put the kids through anymore crap… And his daughter that he claims looks like Paris actually does not look like her at all. They both have light eyes, so I guess that means every little girl with light eyes could be Paris's sister also; PLLEEASE! I wonder which fool will be next to come forth with some bull??

  7. 7

    he should get custody instead of all of those bat ass crazy Jacksons…or that crazy horse lady.

  8. 8

    He was so cuuuuuuute in Oliver!
    Not so much now.

  9. 9

    Y'know, this is more than possible. Look at Mark Lester as a kid in "Oliver" - then compare with pics of Prince 1 as a small child. Wowza.
    And that's BESIDES the resemblance between Harriet and Paris.
    And Mark does not seem like a money-grubbing famewhore, either. He could have made a lot of noise before all of this.

  10. 10

    This guy comes off as a total scumbag, no matter what he says or wants.

  11. 11

    Attention seeking prick.
    He won't get any attention now that Michael isn't around is he?

  12. 12

    omg i should just say i was the surrogate mother who gave birth to madonna…and although shes like 30 yrs older than me im still sure i can land an interview with someone to get my 15 minutes

  13. 13

    i dont think he is money $$$ . he was the god-father of them so he always had some sort of relationship with them. but at least he said that they WERE michael's children and that they belong where they are now .


  14. 14

    thats a bunch a BULL SHITT!
    these people are crazy for the fukkkken MONEY.!
    i love you perez hilton.

  15. 15

    But the kids are mixed race…
    Hes White..So…
    Connect the liars dots.

  16. 16

    Hi! What are you up to? yat ym in so many ways! 46 bg.

  17. 17

    The real father of MJ's kids is Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband, Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt

  18. 18

    wow, leave the poor kids alone! michael was their dad. all these psychos coming out claiming to be the real parents. listen, maybe mj isn't the bio dad, but if someone else is then do it privately!!!! geezus. yea real cool, presenting yourself to the tabloids & television, real classy. ever heard of going to a family member, stating your case quietly, and going for a dna test w/out the entire world knowing you even did it? how sad for the kids.

  19. 19

    I think this guy seems the best one out of the greedy lot. He's not "in the biz", he has a normal life, and he has not once seemed like the money hungry type. I doubt he would have said anything if that bizarre Jackson family hadn't severed contact with him and his kids.
    It must be horrible for everyone concerned to have been so close and then to not be allowed to speak to each other as seems to be the case b/w Mark Lester and his kids and the Jackson kids.
    The Jackson family is SOOOOOOO weird and fucked up and they don't care who they hurt.

  20. 20

    He's too good looking to be the father.

  21. 21

    The children are going to be severely messed up when they are older. I doubt self-obsessed types like Michael Jackson ever thought about the effect of using other people's sperm and eggs would have on these children, especially Blanket who has no idea who his mother is thanks to Jackson who portrayed himself as a loving father, not exactly a loving act denying children the right to know their mothers.

  22. 22

    he should stay quiet, not take his other children on tv

  23. 23

    Re: Samarnthaa – so are you saying those kids are ugly ?

    because lords knows they are stunning !

  24. 24

    He is a horrible friend and a media whore.

  25. 25

    Re: Cheeky! – did you know Michael personally ?

    I would assume NO . how you know he was "self-obsessed" as you have mentioned ?

    if he were he wouldnt have given so much to charities and helped sick children and such. sometimes its just really funny seeing ppl speak bad about him when the stuff they say is extremely false . check the stuff he's done for other ppl then talk about him ..


  26. 26

    Re: kelli94/love4MJ. – They are children. Why would i even imply that children of that age are even remotely ugly?

  27. 27

    Re: Cheeky!
    Let's face it. MJ was a lost soul.
    Lost souls make shitty parents.
    Even though he seemed to lavish much love and attention on his kids, I think having them was the result of him trying to fill a deeper need - a hole within himself.
    People do that all the time -
    And, as a result, guess who becomes victimized?
    The kids. Every time.

  28. 28

    JIGSAW: my little fat fiend, bring me a vodka martini, double olives.

  29. 29

    But yeah I am saying the two boys are ugly.

  30. 30

    It's Oliver Twist all grown up lol.

  31. 31

    Re: Cheeky! – I agree. Michael shouldn't have been allowed to take care of children, he was still a child himself at heart.

  32. 32

    Anyone who opens there mouths to tell private information is in it for money or notoriety and both are vile reasons.

  33. 33

    I'm so fed up with the MJ saga. When will it ever end?????

  34. 34

    Re: Samarnthaa – well you did say "He's too good looking to be the father. " how exactly did you think ppl was going to think of that as you not saying they are nice looking kids ?

  35. 35

    Re: Lucy3000 – trust me it won't be ending anytime soon .

  36. 36

    Re: AnnieGirl – why do you hate Jigsaw so much ? lol . he/she seems cool .

  37. 37

    Re: kelli94/love4MJ. – I was being sarcastic in what I have just replied with, and why would i care about what other people think about what I have just said?

  38. 38

    There are other ways to do this, to talk to the media is just DISGUSTING and DISRESPECTFUL to Michael and his children! Why doesn't he see how wrong this is?

  39. 39

    I think the girl does look a lot like this guy and the older son looks like his dermatologist a lot. I think the youngest looks too different to be either's kid. What I wonder is why Jackson did not supply his own sperm and whether he wanted the kids to be biologically diffferent for a different purpose.

  40. 40

    Re: Samarnthaa – your sarcasm didn't come off as funny , idc if you dont care what other ppl think abt it , i just simply asked a question.

  41. 41

    Re: Lucky Lucy – agree .
    idk about blanket , he does look alot like mj to me .

  42. 42

    This is all so diabolical. Though it's not possible, MJ must have collected a bunch of sperm from different dudes of his choosing, mixed it all up and got at least Debbie Rowe sperminated up. Poor children, I hope they were told who they came from, and if not, they deserve the truth!!!…who are they going to be in the care of once grandma K kicks it?! Scary contemplation.

  43. 43

    Re: kelli94/love4MJ. – It didn't intend to come off as funny, so I don't know where you got that from. I simply replied.

  44. 44

    I think Blanket looks just like Michael Jackson… chin dimple, eyes, etc.

  45. 45

    What a tard!

  46. 46

    Re: Samarnthaa – ok chick bye .

  47. 47

    Perez, you are a gullible asshole! Mark Lester isn't money hungry? Give me a break! If he isn't money hungry, he's attention seeking. Lester's ex-wife reportedly said that it's impossible for Mark to be the father of Michael's children, and that Mark was not as close to Michael as he claimed to be. "There's a possibility that one, or all - very unlikely all - but one of those kids may be mine." Just that one quote shows how delusional Mark is. How can you look at Blanket and say, "Oh yeah, Mark's the father." In fact, Paris and Prince look nothing like this man. TWO PALE, WHITE PEOPLE WILL NOT PRODUCE TANNED SKIN CHILDREN. Oh but it gets better. "I must stress though that those kids are Michael Jackson's children - they are with the family, they are in the place where they should be." So you drop a bomb shell claim, but then say, "Oh no. I'm the father of one or all of Michael's kids. Wait, scratch that. Michael is the father and they're where they belong with the Jackson family." Mark, make up your fucking mind. You will probably never see those kids again you worthless piece of shit. How about trying to PRIVATELY work something out with Katherine? No, instead you go to any and all media outlets that will allow you to say such absurd things. Where's the next leech?

  48. 48

    This man may be the biological father. But is not the father because he preceded her to the benefit of children. That leave them alone!

  49. 49

    Oliver Twist……

  50. 50

    Re: c h a d s t e r – you write very well !
    kudos to you !

  51. 51

    Can't everyone just leave this family alone??

  52. 52

  53. 53

    Re: Samarnthaa – hey baby you on cheap drugs?

  54. 54

  55. 55

    We have only this loser's word that he is the godfather to those kids. Nothing he says will convince me that this jerk is not out for himself. If he was a good friend to MJ as he claims to have been, he should be the first one to say "those kids are Michael's kids. Period." to protect the kids, not fcuk them up with this stupid claim thereby - ensuring as well that the Jacksons will never let him near those children ever again. What an asshole. Poor MJ but yes I agree he should have had the foresight to deal with all this, especially as he apparently felt someone was out to get him (or kill him, I think that is what he said apparently).

  56. 56

  57. 57

    Re: The Wisest One – You're exactly right.

  58. 58

    He looks just like Paris, and so does his daughter. I mean, the resemblance is pretty remarkable.

  59. 59

    Re: c h a d s t e r / Thanks buddy, so are you.

  60. 60

    Honestly what he is doing makes sense. The media is going to create enough pressure about Jackson for the kids to deal with for a long time…they really don't need to deal with conspiracies about their biological father as well. Having a single person come out honestly about it takes power away from the myriad of media outlets who would milk it as long as they could.

  61. 61

    Re: sweetiebird / No offence sweetiebird, but are you BLIND? Those gorgeous kids look nothing like Mark Lester nor the not-so-attractive daughter his is pimping out as "proof". God this makes me sick! If all these billions of people were his "friends", where were they when he was obviously suffering and in need of real friends like Liz Taylor? She has never said a word since her statement and has always shown real class. And MJ was known to call the people he was close to during the night when he could not sleep. As one of the other posts so wisely indicated, even Mark Lester's ex-wife says the guy was no where near as close to Michael Jackson as he claims to be. What a fucking douchebag.

  62. 62

    Re: Obnoxious_Joe – That would be nice - too bad it will never happen I don't think (re the DNA).

  63. 63

    Re: The Wisest One – Thanks! I have to agree again with you. sweetiebird, are we looking at the same person? I just think some people have a hard time giving credit to Michael Jackson for anything that seems remotely normal. He can't produce his own children, he can't eat fried chicken, he can't have a marriage without it being "contrived." It's like, what gives? I suppose if we look hard enough, one of Michael's children will start to resemble Perez Hilton. Is he the father? Quit this ridiculous mess. Michael Jackson is the father, period.

  64. 64

    of course so clear he's $$$$$$ hungry. poor michael doesnt have real friends. shame on Mark Lester. his interview is so vomit inducing I can't stand this guy how can Michael befriend guys like this along with that guy Uri Geller. all of em users!!!!!!

  65. 65

    Re: c h a d s t e r – wait michael couldn't eat fried chicken ? i thought his favored resturant was KFC . lol !

  66. 66

    Re: The Wisest One – you are just a good write like chadster ! :)

  67. 67

    Re: budrose – of all i thought uri geller was the only one that somewhat was michaels friend until they fell out i guess

  68. 68

    He looks more like the father of Bubbles the Chimp.

    Actually, if any of the kids had upside-down ears like this guy, I might be inclined to believe he was the father.

  69. 69

    great another HUNGRY TIGER

  70. 70

    He is not their godfather McCaully Caulken is and he just wants some attention and Matt Lauer is desperate enough to give it to him.

  71. 71

    Fuuny how all these "best friends" of MJ come out now when he's dead for $$$$$$. What pieces of shit they are..

  72. 72

    Man, these poor kids. :(

  73. 73

    His ex wife said they weren't as close as he said they were. They lost contact during the 80's and 90's and only began speaking again when thier son was born in 1999. So its not even possible, I do think hes full of shit.

  74. 74

    Re: kelli94/love4MJ. – No, it was! haha I'm just saying, everything Michael did that was "normal" people act as though he couldn't do it without there being more to it.

  75. 75

    If he cared about those kids at all and there was any truth to this, he'd be talking to Katherine Jackson about these things, not every single news program or newspaper that'll hear it. Sick.

  76. 76

    1 this guy isnt even there god father, Macaulay Culkin is. 2 he is white, Debbie Rowe is white, how can they produce dark/tan children? 3 michael raised these kids, even if there not his or are, michael is still there father and always will be.

  77. 77


  78. 78

    Maybe I fell asleep in genetics, but I really don't think he's the father. As a kid in "Oliver" he's blond with fair skin, as is Debbie Rowe. Prince and Paris are both gorgeous but are brunette with a darker skin tone. Mark's own daughter on the Today Show is blonde with a light complexion… We'll never know. It's getting old.

  82. 82

    I hope the kids aren't as ugly as him!!!!!

  83. 83

    Re: blubabiecutie – And you know the truth do you? Fan stands for fanatic and Michael Jackson fans are most certainly fanatical, also rather deluded, too.

  84. 84

    Does he remind anyone else of Jimmy from Emmerdale?

  85. 85

    he's so damn ugly. not to mention annoying. it's no way paris and prince are related to his rat face.

  86. 86

    Re: Samarnthaa – are you fucking crazy?! he's the ugly one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  87. 87

    i dont have word for this man. so what if the story was about to break in the UK. If he were such a good friend of MJ.. then he could have DENIED the story for the sake of MJ and his children.

  88. 88

    and to bring his daughter Harriet? How lame and tacky can anyone be?

  89. 89

    MJ's kids doenst even look like Lesters kids..hahaha whata joke this man is

  90. 90

    Eurgh, he is white, and the mother is white. So how can they make a mixed race kid? He just wants his name in the media.

  91. 91

    hes a gold digger he just wants there money

  92. 92

    Re: c h a d s t e r
    Chadster,I totally agree with you. This guy is an idiot! Just another asshole in a long line of assholes.Why don't these people just STFU? They're talking about kids,for God sake! These kids have enough going on,with losing their FATHER,without all these retards coming out of the wood work,saying all this shit.
    At the end of the day,MICHAEL is their father. He raised them and loved them.
    I feel so sorry for the kids. Jesus,they know how to read and every friggen place you look,there's these stupid stories.
    Just leave them alone! Let them mourn in peace and remember the love that their father gave to them!

  93. 93

    tell me how two lilly white folks can have kids that dark? tell me how this man is concerned for the kids but won't evengive them appropriate grieving time. please someone tell me y he is hanging out w/ gellar and fiddes and wants to know why he can't see the kids? two men who have lied about mj and sold stories for money and he's saying the story was about to leak? who do u think was going to leak it?

    mj and deb are the parents of the older two and mj used a surrogate for his youngest.

    how the hell can he be the father of the kids if , by his own admission, he didn't speak to mj from 89-01! MEANING that by that time, prince andparis were already born and blanket was in utero.

    y r u wasting ur page space on this twat?

  94. 94

    Oh and to answer the question how two white people can have tan children, when you put white kids in the sun or under a sunbed they do tend to go tan coloured. Michael Jackson's eldest two look like white kids just back from vacation. I am white and look almost arab when I sunbathe.

  95. 95

    Re: c h a d s t e r – i'd say he was pretty normal . did you see a video on youtube where he just wanted to go to a normal store to shop for food and magazines but he coulnd't because all the fans were waiting outside . so they had to shut down the entire store so he could shop lol it was awesome and it looked like he was having so much fun !

    he was awesome idc what anyone says !

  96. 96

    Re: Cheeky! – do you really think they actually let the kids sit outside in the sun alll day . they couldn't even go outside without the masks on . so your theory WRONG ! hah :)

  97. 97

    Someone please punch this guy in the face and tell him what he is doing is wrong!
