In a dramatic new twist in the quest for the truth regarding the paternity of the late Michael Jackson's children, three cast members of the 1968 musical movie extravaganza 'Oliver!' have allegedly laid claim to fathering one of them.
Mark Lester, who played Oliver Twist, Jack Wild, who played The Artful Dodger, and Ron Moody, who played a particularly villainous Fagin are thought to have been the culprits.
They are said to have all been sperm donors at some point, and early reports indicate that Wacko Jacko wanted his kids to have the genealogy of a successful stage musical with lots of kids in it.
Suspicions have been raised in some quarters that the claims are a belated attempt to achieve publicity, and/or a claim to part of the Jackson fortune. Which may, or indeed may not exist.
Robin Williams, who played an older Peter Pan in the Movie 'Hook', and co-star Dustbin Hoffman have not been implicated.
More as we get it.
