Michael Jackson’s goddaughter Lucy Lester has dropped the strongest hint yet her dad Mark Lester could be the biological father of Paris Jackson, while stating Michael would always be her dad.
After years of speculation, the Loose Women guest addressed rumours they were half-sisters.
In the past, Mark has confessed he would have a DNA test, telling Mail Online : “I wouldn’t have a DNA test without the children’s permission but when the children come of age, and it’s not far away, and they decide they want me to do it then I will.”
She said: “Michael will always be her dad, biologically or not, Michael raised her, he loved her and that’s all that really matters.”
Lucy lost contact with his children, including Paris Jackson, 10 years ago after his family “wanted to shelter them”.
The daughter of Oliver actor Mark, a close friend of the late star, got to know his three children while they were growing up.
But contacted stopped after Michael’s death in 2009, with Lucy not having spoken to either of his children since.
She revealed live on the show: “We lost touch after Michael passed away and I would love to see, not just Paris, but all of the children.
“So much has happened in the last 10 years but obviously I understand completely the family wanted to shelter them.”
Speaking on Loose Women in her first TV interview since the HBO documentary Leaving Neverland aired, Lucy revealed her support for the star as she continued to refuse to watch it.
The documentary by Dan Reed focuses on the late singer and historical sexual abuse allegations made against him. Jackson always denied allegations against him and in June 2005 was acquitted of child molestation.
In the new documentary, it featured “gut wrenching” interviews with Wade Robson, 36, and James Safechuck, 40, who claim they were abused by Jackson from the ages of seven and eight respectively.
Despite her continuous support for the star and his family, still refusing to believe Michael was guilty, Lucy has now confirmed she hasn’t heard from Paris, Blanket or Prince or the family since he died almost 10 years ago.
On her decision not to watch the controversial documentary about Michael, she went on: “No, I haven’t watched it, I don’t really feel I need to.
“Obviously my opinion is not going to be swayed by a documentary, I don’t really want to listen to it.”
Loose Women airs weekdays at 12:30pm on ITV.
