The Jackson family attorney says Mark Lester is not the father of Michael Jackson’s daughter, is not claiming paternity and is not offering himself up to DNA testing, despite celebrity gossip reports that Lester is Paris Jackson's biological father.

While Mark Lester, a longtime friend of the late music icon, could not be reached for comment, sources close to the Jacksons confirm that Lester indeed donated sperm specifically for Jackson, as alleged, but say he never claimed paternity.
