Paris Jackson - Paris Jackson's godfather offers 'olive branch' to her

Paris Jackson's godfather thinks Michael Jackson would want him to extend an ''olive branch'' to her.

The troubled teen's godfather, British actor Mark Lester - who has claimed he could be Paris and her elder brother Prince's biological father, as he donated sperm to the late 'Thriller' star - has said he wants Paris to come over to the UK and stay with him.

He thinks a break from Los Angeles - where she is currently recovering in hospital after a suspected suicide attempt - could be just what she needs.

When asked by TV host Jeremy Kyle what he thought the late Michael would want from him, he replied: ''I think he'd be expecting me to give the olive branch, a place for her sanctuary, a place to come and stay. I have suggested very strongly that Paris comes and stays with us ... I make that suggestion as a godfather, as a friend.

When asked how he thought his family environment would be better for Paris, Mark - who has four children of his own - said: ''Certainly it would be a breath of fresh air, hang out with people who are not going to idolise her for being Paris Jackson but for being the kid that she is, she just needs friends.''

Mark was also asked if he would be prepared to take a DNA test, to see if he is the biological father of Paris, 15, or Prince, 16, whose mother is Debbie Rowe, who was artificially inseminated for both her pregnancies.

Michael also has a younger child, Blanket, 11, whose mother is unknown.

Recalling the moment when his long-time friend Michael asked him for a sperm donation, Mark said: ''Years ago Michael phoned me up and asked me; we were talking about my kids, he didn't have any of his own, my wife at the time had just given birth to my third daughter and we were joking and I said, 'Well I just have to look at her and she gets pregnant.' He said, 'Well Mark I really want to have kids of my own.' And I said, 'It's a natural thing, you've just got to go out there and do it.' And Michael was always quite wary about women for whatever reasons, so that conversation ended. Then he phoned me again sometime later and he was talking about fertility and it transpired he wanted me to give a sperm donation.

''He said, 'Would you be able to help me out.' I went a couple of times to a clinic in London.''

When Mark was asked why he never tried to find out from Michael if he was the biological father of his children, he replied: ''When I gave what I gave, and I'm sure several other people did at the same time, that was it. I washed my hands of it. There were rumours of the story coming out, so I came forward.''

Mark also said he hasn't seen any of the Jackson children since the late King of Pop was laid to rest in June 2009, after passing away from acute Propofol intoxication days before the beginning of comeback 'This is It' shows.

I am sure when Paris got upset over hearing her and her brother did not share the same biological fathers, he thought of her and the thought he could be her father. Since Paris is showing signs of wanting to reconnect with people who might have a link to her, he is showing his openness. I read she called him before her suicide attempt and seeing how she wanted to reconnect with Debbie, he likely wanted to let her know if she wanted that, he was ok with it and getting a dna test when she is emotionally ready to handle it. With her father now dead and her showing signs of unhappiness and difficulties with the family she is placed in, he is trying to step up in the event he is needed and I am sure he also wonders if he is the biological father. What is wrong with that. I read she wants to meet with him so he is not doing anything wrong. As far as his acting, I loved Oliver and I feel that film really must have connected with Michael and his feelings of being not as close or feeling as accepted as he hoped to be and his affinity for child stars and that resonating with him and wanted to know the man. why are oyu denigrating a great film and his acting in it. You do not know anything about what Michael thought of him or if Michael would like him to help Paris in her hour of need,. Why is it any of you guys business, It is his business and his children's business. You don't enough know his kids. I am so sick of the mean negative and judgmental comments on articles. what is wrong with people nowadays...we are called to love others not be so mean. Stop judging the man. They stayed out cause that is what Michael wanted but if he could see how unhappy the kids are, he might appreciate them stepping up when they see Paris in serious emotional upheaval.

what a fucking sleazy moron, he is trying whatever it 's take to get to The Jackson Family. Firstly he is not Paris Jackson father and I am 100% sure Michael wouldn't want this Prick to be involved in their lives. So pseudo "actor", he only made one movie in his life and he is calling himself an actor!. What afucking joke he is. Listen whoever you are just back off from them, they don't need you stupid.

Unless Mark Lester lives on the moon, there is no place on earth that Paris can go to escape being Michael Jackson's daughter. Every media outlet from newspapers to the internet will always write about her and her family and unless she gives up reading all together she will still know about what others are doing when it comes to all things Jackson and that Mark Lester is a fact. We all know how Mark Lester has been trying to claim Paris as his daughter by telling the world that as MJ's "good friend", he gave him sperm and how he definitely believes Paris is HIS daughter. So trying to get her to come to London as MJ's friend throwing that olive branch is bogus BS!!!! Paris might not come back!! I would NOT TRUST ANYONE WHO CLAIMS THEY WERE MICHAEL'S GOOD OR BEST FRIEND, BECAUSE WE ARE FINDING OUT DAILY THAT MJ DIDN'T HAVE THE FRIENDS HE THOUGHT HE HAD!
