Michael Jackson's former bodyguard Matt Fiddes, says he is the biological father of Michael Jackson's youngest son Blanket (Prince Michael II). Fiddes says he is ready to give DNA sample to prove his claim.
Contact Music reports only Michael Jackson's name appears on Blanket's birth certificate when he was born in 1992. According to Contact Music, the late Michael Jackson claimed that he fathered the boy with a surrogate. But Fiddes insists that he donated sperm and that Jackson once admitted that he (Fiddes) was the child's biological father.
Fiddes claims Jackson once told him: "He's my child, Matt, but I used your sperm to produce him." Fiddes, a British martial arts expert, claims he donated sperm in 2001 at a London hotel because Jackson said he wanted an "athletic child."
Fiddes now says he is ready to take legal action for visitation rights. According to Vibe.com, Fiddes said: "Michael is their father and I do not want that to change, but I want the children back in my life. The only way that’s going to happen is through legal action. I think Blanket is mine but I want final proof."
Vibe.com reports Fiddes says he is willing to give DNA samples to prove he his the biological father of the boy so that he can have legal visitation rights. Fiddes says he wants to spend time with the boy and introduce him to his mother who is battling cancer.
He says that his battle for custody of the child has nothing to do with the Jackson family wealth. He said: "I'm a self-made man. I don't want or need their cash."
Blanket is now 10 years old. Daily Caller reports Fiddes has claimed paternity of the boy for years. Fiddes, who has three other children, said: “All I want is access.”
