Mark Lester, the godfather of Michael Jackson’s children Paris, 11, Prince, 12 and Blanket, 7, tells News of the World he donated the sperm that likely helped the late King of Pop to have children and wants to take a paternity test to prove he’s the biological father of Paris Jackson and perhaps the other two children. Lester says he’s coming forward because since Jackson’s memorial service, he hasn’t been able to contact the kids that he had spent a lot time before Michael’s death. “This isn’t what Michael would have wanted. I feel I have to come forward, as my only way of saying, ‘Please don’t shut me out!’,” the 51-year-old said.
As for Lester’s motivation, he insists it’s not about money. “I’ll push all the way for contact with her, Prince and Blanket,” he said. “I feel it’s important. I love those kids so much. We’ve had great times together. I don’t know if I’m doing the right thing speaking out. But I’m not trying to make any claim on anything. Even if it’s proven Paris is biologically mine I wouldn’t see her as anything other than Michael’s daughter. He raised her. Michael was a brilliant, brilliant dad. Those kids are Michael’s children. He was their father. End of story. But I just want to make sure they’re happy.”
Illicit Drug Use Nullifies Michael Jackson’s Life Insurance Policy?
August 7, 2009 – According to the $17.5 million Lloyd’s of London insurance policy AEG took out on Michael, which was obtained by the L.A. Times, illegal drug use was not covered. “This insurance does not cover any loss directly or indirectly arising out of, contributed, to, by or resulting from … the illegal possession or illicit taking of drugs and their effects,” the policy stated. The legal drug Propofol, which TMZ reports a lethal amount was in his system at the time of his death, could be qualify as illicit since the drug is only intended as an anesthetic in hospital use, not for home use.
Michael Jackson’s Mother Imposes Internet Ban On The Kids
