Jackson ‘lovechild’ denies staking a claim to star’s fortune

A lawyer for the 24 year old man claiming to be MICHAEL JACKSON's lovechild insists he is not after a chunk of the late superstar's estate.

Prince Michael Malachi Jet Jackson filed a claim in Los Angeles on Tuesday, insisting he's the King of Pop's offspring.

He submitted a birth certificate that names Michael Joseph Jackson as the father, and Zerline LaVette Dixon as his mother.

Prince Michael, who has the same name as Jackson's son with Debbie Rowe, is currently at a "special needs college" and was brought up by his grandmother after his mum fell into drug addiction, according to his lawyer LeRue Grim.

His mother, Dixon, was allegedly a fashion designer in the 1980s who worked for a clothing line under the company name of Michael Jackson.

And Grim is convinced Jackson's latest alleged lovechild isn't after a share of the tragic star's fortune - but wants "closure" on his parentage.

Grim tells RadarOnline.com, "Malachi has been told his entire life that he is Michael Jackson's son. His primary goal is to have closure on whether or not Michael was his father, and he wants a DNA test to prove it. Malachi's primary motivation isn't money.

"Malachi looks exactly like Michael Jackson. I'm seeking a DNA test and I'm very concerned that it be reliable and that no one slips in DNA from a stranger. Malachi never met Michael, from what I understand Michael was very private about his personal life."
