Who’s the baby daddy? It’s a modern day mystery. Gossip sites, gossip rags, and curious celebrity watchers have been making speculations about who is the biological father of Michael Jackson’s children. Now Mark Lester, the actor known for his role in Oliver is going public and saying he believes he could be Paris’s dad.
Mark Lester was one of Michael Jackson’s best friends and is the godfather of all three of Michael’s children. He told the UK’s News of the World that, “It’s been a secret for so long. In 1996 Michael asked me if I would give him my sperm and I said yes. It was a gift to him, no money was paid, it was something I was honoured to do. He wanted children so badly.”
Lester is speaking out now because he wants to make sure he has a presence in the children’s lives and is worried that he will be “cut out”. He shared his concerns saying “I’m the Godparent to them and Michael was Godparent to all my four kids. Our two families spent a lot of time together, and had a lot fun together. Now I’m not able to have any communication with the children. My repeated phone calls aren’t returned and emails go unanswered. This isn’t what Michael would have wanted. I feel I have to come forward, as my only way of saying, ‘Please don’t shut me out!’”
Lester also believes there is a strong similarity between his daughter Harriet and Paris (pictured above) . He’s ready and willing to have a DNA test to confirm his speculation.
He isn’t the only close friend of Michael Jackson’s who says he may have given a sperm donation. Michael Jackson. US Weekly had reported that Jackson’s dermatologist Arnold Klein is the biological father but he has stated that “I once donated sperm,” but added that is was “absolutely not” to Jackson, but instead just to a bank.
Do you think Mark Lester is coming out now so he won’t be “cut out” of the kid’s lives or “cut out” of the Jackson fortune?
