LOS ANGELES, March 7 (UPI) -- Brandon Howard, the 31-year-old man who claimed earlier this week to be Michael Jackson's son, is not the King of Pop's progeny after all.

In a bizarre twist, TMZ reports that in addition to the DNA results being fake, Howard ripped the logo on the document he provided for proof from Terminator Salvation.

The celebrity gossip website says they conducted a series of simple Google searches after they obtained a photo of the alleged test. The document says it's from a facility called "DNA Lab" in Ireland, but no such lab was found. A simple image search for "DNA results" turned up a number of sample documents that Howard could have easily used as the format for his own test.

The kicker came when TMZ searched "DNA logo" and the first result in the image search was the same picture used on Howard's "document." A reverse search of the image turned up a number of results for the 2009 film Terminator Salvation. The logo was used on promotional t-shirts for the movie.
