(Newser) – Yet another secret alleged son of Michael Jackson has come out of the woodwork, but his “primary motivation isn’t money,” his attorney tells Radar. Prince Michael Malachi Jet Jackson “has been told his entire life that he is Michael Jackson’s son. His primary goal is to have closure on whether or not Michael was his father.” Did you hear that? The timing is just a coincidence!

The 24-year-old was raised by his grandmother and is attending a special needs college. His mother, Zerline Lavette Dixon, allegedly ran a fashion line under Michael Jackson’s name, but later struggled with drugs. “Malachi looks exactly like Michael Jackson,” his lawyer continues, but the two never met. “He wants a DNA test to prove” that he is Jackson’s son.
