Mark Lester is not MJ’s daughter Paris Jackson’s father, say sourcesAugust 10th, 2009 - 12:40 pm ICT by ANI
They said that Jackson’s long-time friend Lester is not the father of Jackson’s daughter, nor is he claiming paternity as reported by the tabloids.
“They twisted his words around. He’s not claiming to be the father of Paris Jackson,” People magazine quoted a source close to the Jackson family as saying.
Lester, a former child actor, said that he secretly donated sperm to help King of Pop become a father and that the strong likeness between Paris, 11, and his own daughter Harriet, 15, had left him convinced the former was a part of him.
These claims have been backed by Lester’s friends, who said that they were aware of the ‘Thriller’ hitmaker’s dark secret.
“This story has been known in well informed circles for some time. It’s about time it came out,” a friend told Daily Star.
Psychic Uri Geller, 62, a long-time pal of Jacko’s said: “As a close friend of Mark I respect his own decision to reveal this information. I’m not surprised - I knew about this all along because Michael and I spoke about it,” Gellar added. (ANI)
