Michael Jackson's daughter wants to find out the truth
Paris Jackson is reportedly hoping to meet up with Oliver! star Mark Lester at his Oxfordshire home amid new claims that he’s her biological father.
Michael Jackson‘s daughter, 15, is said to have told her grandmother Katherine that she wants to visit Mark, 54, when she’s discharged from hospital, where she’s been since attempting suicide three weeks ago.
‘Paris is deeply interested in learning about her father’s friendship with Mark and what happened,’ says a source.
‘In no way would she ever see him as a replacement for Michael but she’s curious. Mark has met the kids before but Paris never knew the significance of it until now.’
Jason Pfeiffer – a close friend of Michael – claimed yesterday that the late singer confided to him that former child actor Mark had fathered Paris and her older brother Prince.
Mark says he’s lost contact with the siblings since Michael‘s death in 2009 and that it would be ‘lovely’ to see them – but Prince, 16, isn’t as keen to fly to the UK as Paris.
‘Prince cannot be bothered,’ the insider tells the Daily Mirror.
‘He feels that anyone coming out to question Michael being his father is not a true friend.’
Mark Lester and Michael‘s ex-bodyguard Matt Fiddes have both formerly given interviews about donating sperm for the late singer.
In 2009, Mark said he was convinced he was Paris Jackson‘s real dad.
Macaulay Culkin rubbished ‘preposterous’ claims he was the biological father of 11-year-old Blanket but British martial arts expert Matt declared in 2010 that he believed he could be.
Michael told Jason Pfeiffer that he was his youngest son’s dad.
