A man who is believed to be Michael Jackson’s illegitimate son has tested 99.9 per cent positive as a DNA match to the King of Pop.

Brandon Howard, who bares a striking resemblance to a young Michael, is the 31-year-old son of singer Miki Howard, who was managed by the “Thriller” hitmaker’s father Joe Jackson back in the 1980s.

He underwent a paternity test some time ago to prove the “Thriller” hitmaker was his dad, but reportedly kept the results between himself and a few friends and family members.

FilmOn.com boss Alki David uncovered the scandal and set out to make the information public after obtaining the superstar’s DNA from an old dental impression he bought at auction from a Beverly Hills doctor.

He had lab technicians compare the genetics from the orthodontic device to that of Howard’s, which he had also discovered, and had the results read out during a livestream on FilmOn.com on Thursday.

Jackson’s longtime pal, actor Corey Feldman, was present for the big reveal, as a doctor confirmed, “The probability of parenthood is 99.9 per cent.”

Howard was not in attendance at the event and has since posted a video online distancing himself from the whole controversy.

In the footage, the singer, who goes by the name B. Howard, says, “Number one, I did not call TMZ or anything like that, didn’t put out a story, nothing. Number two, I have never self-proclaimed to be Michael Jackson’s son. Number three, I am definitely not suing the (Jackson) estate, I’ve been taken care of very well, and also I make my own cash.

“Number four, it is true I did a DNA test but it had nothing to do with any of this, I swear on my life…”

Meanwhile, Feldman has defended Howard in a series of posts on his Twitter.com blog, in which he suggests he was aware of Howard’s existence all along.

In messages posted before the DNA results were announced, he wrote, “PLEASE UNDERSTAND: (Howard) didn’t talk 2 (sic) the press! He never asked 4 (sic) $ (money)! And he has STILL NOT CLAIMED he is MJs kid (sic)!

“SOME SLEEZBALL FOUND OUT ABOUT THE TEST AND MADE UP A STORY AND SOLD IT 2 (sic) TMZ! That’s the WHOLE STORY!!! It was meant 2 B (sic)PRIVATE INFO!”

Jackson died in 2009.
