miles marshall lewis tweet miki howard

We should've known singer Miki Howard would get around to releasing a statement. Two hours after I took to Twitter wondering about Howard's voice in all this, the veteran R&B singer officially responded to claims that her son, 31-year-old singer B. Howard, is the son of Michael Jackson.

“I love and support my son and the Jackson family. The Jacksons—who are dear, long-time friends of mine—are beautiful people and have always been loving and supportive of me and my career. As to this claim—at this time I am not at liberty to discuss this as it is common practice in our business that celebrities have non-disclosure agreements. And, we are NOT suing anyone!

“By the way... I am NOT ‘Billie Jean’!”
