Michael Jackson's former British bodyguard is once again making claims that he is the biological father of the King of Pop's youngest son, Prince Michael Jackson II (Blanket).
In 2010, Matt Fiddes, Jackson's bodyguard made claims that he donated sperm to the singer. According to the Daily Mail, Fiddes is now launching a legal bid to prove it.
Prince, or Blanket as he is commonly referred as, is now 10-years-old. Fiddes is claiming that in 2001, just a year before Blanket was born, he gave Jackson a sperm donation. The former bodyguard is stating that he had a conversation with Jackson regarding him wanting athletic children, which spurred the sperm donation.
Entertainment Wise is reporting that Jackson once admitted to Fiddes that his sperm was used to conceive Blanket. 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.'
Besides the said acknowledgment from Jackson, Fiddes is also claiming that Jackson also offered him £500,000 or a little over $650,000. The former bodyguard had turned down the offer.
Katherine's worried we will come after the estate and will tell the kids the truth. But to me the truth is the big issue, and that's why I want to take it further. I'm a self-made man, I don't want or need their money, Fiddes told the Daily Star.
The former bodyguard is currently asking for a DNA test as well as visitation rights. Michael is their father and I do not want that to change, but I want the children back in my life, Fiddes has said. The only way that's going to happen is through legal action. I think Blanket is mine but I want final proof.
For Fiddes, he claims that the only thing standing in his way is Michael Jackson's 81-year-old mother, Katherine. All I want is access if he's my child, to take him out, and spend some time together, continued Fiddes. My mum is dying of cancer. I want her to see Blanket more than anything.
Blanket's birth parents have been a mystery for years. The Hollywood Gossip reports that Jackson and ex-wife Debbie Rowe are not Blanket's biological parents.
