Jackson lawyer blasts Lester’s paternity claim

Mark Lester and daughterJackson family lawyer Londell McMillan has dismissed former British child star Mark Lester’s apparent claim that he could be the biological father of Michael Jackson‘s daughter Paris, saying: “These are just merely claims with no legal standing whatsoever.” Lester, 51, who starred in the 1968 musical Oliver! was reported to have said that he once donated sperm to Jackson before Paris’s birth, and claimed Paris resembles his own daughter, Heather. However, a family source told People: “They twisted his words around. He’s not claiming to be the father of Paris Jackson.” Jackson family spokesman Brian Oxman says he believes Michael is in fact her biological father.

    Even if it turned out he was the father. It dosent matter. MJ will always be her real dad, due to the fact that he raised her, loved her, and everything a father does to take care of his children.

    Yeah, but try putting yourself in Paris’s shoes right now, even if she is well protected from the media, she probably will hear something about this, and that’s gonna hurt.

    like she needs to hear about it now. She just lost her father, she dosent need news coming to her and saying micheal wasent your real dad. This man is. Even if he is, he did not raise her from birth. He may be biologicaly, but not in actuallity.

    paris and MJ’s kiddies will never be “well protected from the media” that’s just fact…

    True, but I imagine the Jackson’s are probably trying to shield these kids from the media as much as they can right now, but even so, it’s only a matter of time (if it hasn’t happened already) that these kids hear these stories. They loved their father, and the only thing these stories will succeed in doing is hurting those innocent children.

    the only way to keep these kids from hearing, reading or viewing the many stories surrounding their dad is to lock them in a room and throw away the key…it’s inevitable…

    Exactly. But I’m hoping the family is doing what they can to limit their exposure to all this crap. At least with Blanket being 7 years old, a lot of stuff would fly right over his head, but he will figure it out eventually. The other two, on the other hand, they are definitely old enough to understand what is being said. These poor little kids, why can’t people like Mark Lester just leave them alone?

    Yeah, it’s kind of late for all this stuff now. I think they should just leave these kids alone to be raised by their grandma. Mark Lester claimed “Paris resembles his own daughter, Heather”. Actually she does…but then again, Heather resembles Debbie Rowe, Paris’ biological mother to me.
