Despite having been gone since 2009, everybody is still trying to get some piece of Michael Jackson’s fortune. A man claiming to be his son went so far as to doctor DNA test results just to get inside of the Jackson Family.
31-year-old aspiring singer Brandon Howard alleged he was Michael Jackson’s secret son and had the DNA test to prove it. (Yes, it really did play out like and episode of “Maury.”) Howard claimed he got the paternity test done at a place in Ireland called DNA Lab. Howard and a writer from a FilmOn.com revealed the results that showed ?Jackson is Brandon Howard’s father with 99.99999% probability.
Here’s where things get really interesting. After doing a little digging, it was discovered the logo on the fake DNA results was made from a stock image from Google. The best part about all of this is the DNA logo was also used in promotional t-shirts for “Terminator: Salvation.” It was also found that no such place in Ireland exists named DNA Lab.
How desperate for success does one have to be to go so far as to fake a DNA test of a dead man? It may be time to look for a new profession if you need to go through all of this.
