British actor Mark Lester claims to be the father of Michael Jackson’s kids

Getty ImagesTime for a paternity test?

A British actor says he is the father of Michael Jackson’s kids, and he’s willing to take a DNA test to prove it.

Mark Lester was in “Oliver!” as a child and is the official godfather of Jackson’s children. He told the UK’s Daily Mirror that he donated sperm a year before any of the kids were born, though he only seems to resemble two of them–Paris and Prince Michael. (Blanket actually kind of looks like Michael Jackson!)

Lester claims that following MJ’s death, the family excommunicated him. “I just feel it is really cruel that our relationship has just been cut off,” he said. “It’s not what Michael would have wanted.”
