Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson's Bodyguard Claims He's Dad Of Blanket

Michael Jackson's former British bodyguard has launched a legal bid to prove he's the biological father of the late singer's youngest son.

Martial arts master Matt Fiddes - who provided protection for the 'Thriller' hitmaker when he was in the UK - is heading to America to lodge court papers and demand the right to see 10-year-old Blanket, whose birth name is Prince Michael Jackson II.

He claims to have given Jackson - who also had two other children, Prince Michael, 15, and 14-year-old Paris - a sperm donation in a London hotel a year before Blanket was born in 2002.

He said: ''I am going to lodge my DNA and formally ask the Jacksons for access. I want visitation rights.

''Michael is their father and I do not want that to change, but I want the children back in my life. The only way that's going to happen is through legal action. I think Blanket is mine but I want final proof.''

Fiddes - who has vowed to provide officials with a DNA sample so they can confirm his claims that he is the youngster's true biological dad - alleges Jackson's family have refused to speak to him or answer his letters since his death in 2009.

Fiddes - who has three other children - says Jackson even told him he was Blanket's real father in November 2002, after he infamously dangled the then nine-month-old child over a hotel balcony.

He said: ''I sat there and asked the question, 'Is Blanket my child?' He said, 'He's my child, Matt, but I used your sperm to produce him.'''

But Fiddes claims Jackson's mother Katherine, 81, has done her best to block his desperate pleas to see Blanket believing he is after money.

Jackson died of acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009 at the age of 50.

Here we go again. What is it with these people? Did every damn man that was ever in MJ's life all just gave up their sperm out of the goodness of their hearts? Even if this was true, I'd like to know what he got for something so precious. Did MJ give them money for their sperm, because I can't see any man who is dealing with a person of means not wanting to be compensated in order to do something this drastic. I also can't imagine Michael not getting this man or anyone else to sign waivers not to be able to come back (whether he was alive or dead) trying to gain custody or compensation or being able to make any claims what so ever. One thing is for sure out of all of the kids Blanket is the spitting image of MJ at that same age, so I think this person is after money, because if he already has 3 other kids why is he so gung-ho to get his hands on Blanket or is it what he assume he can get from Blankets inheritence. Enough of all of these a-holes. LEAVE THIS FAMILY ALONE!!

These roaches have no shame..... however.... they can't be so stupid as to not know 'something is up' and that Michael knew all along about what's what... yet still have the bold-faced audacity to bring this s**te. Unless, of coarse, this guy and all the other maggots are doing this to provoke a reaction/early re-appearance from the director.

Zen 2580...You think wouldn't you. Blanket appears to be happy where he is. They just cannot let sleeping dog lay. If he his Blankets biological father it shouldn't matter as he donated his sperm, end of story. The only thing that I can see clearly is that he is after recognition and money....No thought or feelings as to how Blanket would cope with this news

Watch Matt Fiddes: Con Artist on Youtube! - Fiddes has just been proven to be a scam artist, as well as a fantasist who wanted people to believe he was actually "friends" with Michael Jackson. He did many interviews after Michael Jackson's death, claiming he was "friends" with the Pop Legend, and told many lies about him for a little extra money, and attention. It has now been proven by The King Of Pop's mother, Katherine Jackson. who has just released a statement assuring everyone that when she spoke to Michael about this Matt person, Michael couldn't and didn't even remember who he was.
