LOS ANGELES, Jan. 14 (UPI) -- Pop star Michael Jackson denies he is the father of a Los Angeles woman's two newborn sons, "Entertainment Tonight" reported Friday.

Sholeh Bocchelli filed court papers Monday claiming Jackson fathered her twins, born in November, the "Insider" show said.

"There is no truth to this accusation," a Jackson spokesperson said Thursday.

Bocchelli, 36, said Jackson has kept her from her sons and now she wants immediate access to them, the TV show reported.

"He initially was calling every day to advise me about their condition," she was quoted by "The Insider" as saying. "The calls stopped after New Year's."

Jackson -- the father of two children by Debbie Rowe and a third of unknown parentage -- is preparing for his trial at the end of this month in California on charges he sexually abused a 13-year-old boy.
