Michael Jackson Bodyguard Seeks to Prove He's Blanket's Father

Matt Fiddes, Michael Jackson's former bodyguard, is launching a legal bid to prove he is the later singer's son Blanket's biological father, reports the Daily Mail.

Fiddes, 32, announced in the British newspaper that he's headed to Los Angeles to demand visitation rights with the 10-year-old, whose legal name is Prince Michael II. "I am going to lodge my DNA and formally ask the Jacksons for access. I want visitation rights," said Fiddes. "Michael is their father and I do not want that to change, but I want the children back in my life... I think Blanket is mine, but I want final proof," he added.

The martial arts expert says he donated his sperm in 2001 -- a year before Blanket was born -- after Jackson told him he wanted an ''athletic'' child.

The identity of Blanket's mother has been a guarded secret, with some claiming that it was a nurse from Mexico.
