Is Brandon Howard the Son of Michael Jackson?

Brandon-Howard-3213426

Last month, DNA results seemingly confirmed that musician Brandon Howard is the biological son of the late Michael Jackson.  With the legitimacy and accuracy of the results being challenged, new DNA tests are being run that will hopefully produce more conclusive results. 

Brandon Howard (who goes by B Howard) is the son of singer Miki Howard, who was managed by Joe Jackson and was nicknamed “Billie.”  Brandon Howard says that regardless of the results of the DNA tests, he wants to continue his own musical career and will not pursue any portion of the Jackson estate.

I thought this was debunked last month when the Irish lab was fake? http://www.bet.com/news/music/2014/03/07/report-b-howard-s-dna-test-results-are-fake.html

As much as I would like this to be true and to blog about it ("Billie Jean was his lover and the kid is his son"), I have a hard time believing that a resemblance to a post-plastic surgery MJ makes Howard his son. If there is Jackson DNA in Howard, it is likely from MJ's father who managed Howard's mom in what would not be the first case of a manager sleeping with his protege.
