Earlier this week, Brandon Howard, a 31-year-singer, claimed to be the offspring of the late Michael Jackson. Although sketchy DNA evidence has given people reason to doubt the legitimacy of Howard’s claim, there is one entertainer who believes him: Akon.
The singer told Larry King his opinions on the “secret son” allegations during a segment on Larry King Now.
“I honestly believe it,” said Akon, who previously recorded and worked alongside the King of Pop. “Looks like Mike, sounds like Mike, you would’ve thought it was Mike. Literally. And me knowing Mike’s mannerisms, when I see him, I can’t — I couldn’t believe who he was.”
Meanwhile, Howard recently told TMZ photogs that he has no plans of suing Jackson’s estate.
