Mark Lester, godfather to Michael Jackson's three children, is fairly certain that he is their biological father and is willing to take a DNA test to prove it.
MJ's long-time friend told the Daily Mirror about a conversation they had many years ago, "‘Oh, you don’t have any fertility difficulties do you?’ He was half joking so I joked, ‘Oh, I just look at her and she gets pregnant.’"
“So then in a light-hearted way he said, ‘Will you help me out?’ Initially I thought he wanted me to do something with his ex-wife Debbie Rowe and I was thinking, ‘I don’t think so.'"
“Then out of the blue about a year later, he mentioned sperm donation and I agreed. Michael set it up for me to turn up to a clinic in Harley Street, London to do it. It was weird."
“I went in a couple of times to donate but we never talked about it ever again. It was a really strange request but while Michael was alive I never gave it another thought. I didn’t donate to get something out of it.”
Mark made the donation the year before Prince Michael, 16, was born. He believes that Paris, 15, and Blanket, 11, are also his children.
He claims he hadn't thought about the sperm donation in years but now believes there is a "good possibility" that he is the father.
“I wouldn’t have a DNA test without the children’s permission but when the children come of age, and it’s not far away, and they decide they want me to do it--then I will. It’s up to them."
“I don’t want to tell them what to do. I just want to reconnect and be the godfather that Michael made me.”
Lester hasn't seen the children since Jackson's funeral in 2009, but recently put out a message to the kids, “I’m here, come and visit England, we’ll look after you.”
Paris recently reconnected with her biological Debbie Rowe, more on that here.
