Former child star Mark Lester has claimed that he is the father of Michael Jackson's daughter.
Lester, who played Oliver in the 1968 musical, claims he donated his sperm to the King of Pop and is willing to take a paternity test to prove he is the biological father of 11-year-old, Paris.
He told the News of the World: "It's been a secret for so long. In 1996 Michael asked me if I would give him my sperm and I said yes.
"It was a gift to him, no money was paid, it was something I was honoured to do. He wanted children so badly.
"I do feel a definite bonding with Paris and I think there's a definite possibility that she's part of me."
Lester sated that there is an unmistakeable likeness between Paris and his own 15-year-old daughter Harriet.
The Jackson family lawyer, Londell McMillan, has said that Lester is looking for "five minutes of fame" and that his claims have "no merit".
She added: "These genetic lottery attempts aren't going anywhere. They have no legal standing."
Jermaine Jackson also hit back at the claims, stating that there is no doubt over who is the biological father. He said: "People say things just to get attention. But those are definitely Michael's children".
