Blanket Jackson's Real Father: Michael Jackson's Bodyguard?
And the Bodyguard Says He Wants to Raise His Son
Even years after his 2009 death, the Michael Jackson shockers keep on coming. The latest: MJ's former bodyguard, Matt Fiddes, claims he's the biological daddy of Jackson's on Blanket, and now he wants to raise his son.
Blanket, also known as Prince Michael II, was born in 2002.
Fiddes, who has been claiming he was Blanket's dad for years, says Michael Jackson asked him to donate sperm in 2002, so that Michael would have a "sporty" child.
Fiddes says he made the donation, and now, he doesn't want money, but the chance to be with the kid he claims is his son.
Fiddes is reportedly travelling to Los Angeles to provide a DNA sample in an effort to prove he's Blanket's parent, after making claims in 2009 that he was told by Michael Jackson that he was Blanket's biological father.
"I sat there and asked the question: 'Is Blanket my child?' (Jackson) said: 'He’s my child, Matt, but I used your sperm to produce him,'" Fiddes told The Sun newspaper.
"All I want is access if he’s my child, to take him out, and spend some time together," Fiddes, 32, told The Sun newspaper. "My mum is dying of cancer. I want her to see Blanket more than anything."
Blanket Jackson's mother, by the way, is rumored to be a Mexican nurse named Helena.
