A former English child star is claiming to be the biological father of Michael Jackson's children.
Mark Lester, known for his portrayal as the title character in the 1968 musical Oliver!, has opened up to the media about believing that the sperm Jackson asked him to donate years ago went towards creating Prince Michael, Paris, and Blanket.
"After Michael asked me to donate sperm for him I completely forgot about it... I remember Michael ringing and saying, 'Oh, you don’t have any fertility difficulties do you?'Then out of the blue about a year later, he mentioned sperm donation and I agreed. Michael set it up for me to turn up to a clinic in Harley Street, London to do it. It was weird. I went in a couple of times to donate but we never talked about it ever again. It was a really strange request but while Michael was alive I never gave it another thought. I didn’t donate to get something out of it."

Tanner - who is currently being investigated for conspiracy - says, "The way I work, dude, is I like to know as little as possible. [Mark]'s going to use one of the things you gave him to get him out of this, he's gonna go take care of it. We went and we bought some hedge clippers. You're gonna give me five large for each one I get."

He's someone I think about when I think about that kind of person; I talk to his family, who I love. I talk to my godfather Steven Spielberg.''
