How do you take a rumor about the heritage of Michael Jackson’s children and make it even more complicated and incomprehensible? I don’t know, but The Sun managed to do it by running a story that Macaulay Culkin was the true biological father of Michael’s youngest, Blanket Jackson.
Since the story made the rounds, Culkin’s PR rep has reportedly chimed in, not to say much of anything except that ‘duh, it’s a rumor.’ This is the response that TMZ got when the called MC’s agent to do some fact-checking:
“The inquiries are too preposterous for us to even acknowledge.”
Could it get any weirder? Yeah, I think so. If Macaulay actually feels the need to hold a press conference, this thing could get full-on twilight zone on us.
Indeed, the origins of MJ’s children have sparked so many rumors since the King of Pop’s death in June, that the rumors have become a phenomenon all by themselves. I’m not even 100% sure that this one is the best so far.
I might have to say that the woman who claims that MJ took her baby and gave it to Tom Cruise is still my favorite — but let’s see if we can top it. Let’s make up our own MJ baby rumor.
Personally, I think Blanket Jackson looks a little like Anthony Kiedis. Can we work with that? Leave any suggestions in the comments section.
