Michael Jackson Bodyguard Claims He’s Blanket’s Father, Wants Visitation Rights

As reported by AOL Music Blog, earlier this month, Michael Jackson‘s former bodyguard Matt Fiddes publicly announced that he was the biological father of the late King of Pop’s youngest child, Blanket. Now the late legend’s ex-employee is putting his money where his mouth is, as he reportedly attempts to secure visitation rights with the 10-year-old boy.

Following Jackson’s untimely death in 2009, his mother Katherine Jackson assumed legal guardianship of her son’s three children, Prince, Paris and Prince II, better known as Blanket. Almost three years later, Fiddes, who has three children of his own, is determined to see Blanket and introduce the child to his cancer-stricken mother. “I want her to see Blanket more than anything,” he reportedly told Globe magazine. “All I want is access,” he claimed, and is now ready to submit a DNA test to help get it.

While gossip questioning the true biological origins of all three of MJ’s kids is nothing new, both Prince and Paris were allegedly fathered by Jackson and mothered by his ex-wife Debbie Rowe. Meanwhile, Michael maintained that he is also the biological father of Blanket, whose mother remains unknown.

Fiddes, however, told Splash News he donated his own sperm to his famous friend in 2001, and that he and his own mother have questioned his striking resemblance to Blanket.

The martial arts professional insists his custody claims are not motivated by money, telling Globe, “I’m a self-made man. I don’t want or need their cash.”
