Paris Jackson’s ‘Aunt’ Slams Mark Lester And Gary’s Michael Jackson Memorial

1861116MICHAEL Jackson Watch: Anorak’s at-a-glance look at Michael Jackson in the news – Mark Lester’s ex-wife Jane says Paris Jackson not his, Mark Lester is “nuts” and Gary pays for the  Jackson memorial show.

LAST week we heard that Mark Lester could be the father to Michael Jackson’s three children (and counting), or not. We were invited to note the resemblance between his daughter Harriet and Jackson’s daughter Paris.

Now the Mail’s Alison Boshoff tells us:

Is my ex-husband Mark Lester the father of Jacko’s children? No, he’s completely nuts

Jane Lester sighs heavily when you ask whether her former husband Mark, the child star made famous by Oliver!, could possibly have made a sperm donation to Michael Jackson in 1996 – and thus be the biological father of Michael’s eldest children, Prince Michael and Paris Jackson…

It’s certainly a startling story – but can it possibly be true? And what, you wonder, would prompt Lester, now living obscurely as a 51-year-old osteopath in Cheltenham, to tell such a story?

Well, wonder no more, Alison Boshoff, because, er, last week Lester told us:

Now I’m not able to have any communication with the children. My repeated phone calls aren’t returned and emails go unanswered. This isn’t what Michael would have wanted. I feel I have to come forward, as my only way of saying, ‘Please don’t shut me out!'”

Now read on:

According to Jane, the claims are not even faintly credible… Jane tells me that the friendship between her ex and Michael Jackson only truly blossomed after Paris’s birth. She describes Mark Lester as ‘completely nuts‘ and says she found the association between her ex-husband and Jacko ‘frankly creepy’.

Michael Jackson, the man who slept with boys, spoke like a Pinocchio’s castrato brother and picked his nose – literally – creepy? Never! Here’s Jane again, whose reasons for speaking about her husband to the press are not explained:

Jane, whose parting from Lester was acrimonious, says the friendship with Jackson was one of the factors that destroyed her marriage… ‘As soon as he got a whiff of Jackson’s fame, he went ballistic,’ she says.

Good of her to set the record straight:

Jane Lester is described by both her brother and by Mark Lester as an alcoholic. She herself concedes: ‘I do like a bottle of wine, that is my vice.’ She does not have custody of her children with Lester, and tells me that out of the four, only Olivia, eight, still comes to visit her.

That doesn’t mean, though, that her recall is necessarily inaccurate – she is impressively collected and precise when talking about why she is certain what Mark Lester says is untrue.

Thanks, Alison Boshoff, for pointing out a few hundred words into your sensatiaon that that your source is not “necessarily inaccurate”. Now read on…

She is perturbed that Lester has sold this story – and by the pictures for which their daughter Harriet, 15, posed to prove the supposed similarities with Paris Jackson. Jane says, somewhat unkindly: ‘Harriet wants to be a famous model and is probably thrilled by the attention.’

Says Marks Lester’s ex-wife in interview with the ntiaonl press…

Chicago Sun Times: “Gary to pay $5K for Joe Jackson group’s trip to memorial service”

Gary Glitter? No, Gary, Indiana.

City spokeswoman LaLosa Burns said the $5,000 is a “donation” to Jackson and the others. “It was a donation and we have record of our donation,” Burns said.

A donation is a donation. It is not a payment. It is a gift. Good of the city’s burghers to cough up so generously for the chance to met the Jacksons.

The mayor’s staff released records Thursday afternoon outlining the preliminary cost of the city’s memorial for Michael Jackson, a Gary native, July 10 at the U.S. Steel Yard baseball stadium.

The death of Michael Jackson – Rest in Pieces…
