Former child acting star claims he is father of Jacko’s Paris

FORMER child acting star Mark Lester has said in a British newspaper that he donated sperm to Michael Jackson and believes he could be the biological father of the late singer’s daughter, Paris.

Lester, who played Oliver Twist in the 1968 film musical, Oliver, told the News of the World: “I gave Michael my sperm so that he could have kids and I believe Paris is my daughter.”

He is willing to take a paternity test to establish whether or not he is 11-year-old Paris’ father.

He said since Jackson’s mother had been granted custody of the children following the singer’s death, all his phone calls and emails had gone unanswered. Lester, who has four children, said there was a strong resemblance between his 15-year-old daughter, Harriet, and Paris.
