Mac Daddy

And here we thought that if there was any chance that Michael Jackson was the real father to one of his kids, it would be the youngest, Blanket Jackson. The resemblance is there, and according to Blanket’s grandfather, Joe, the child has dance moves worth exploiting, so it made sense to assume the child might actually be Michael’s biological son.

So we’re finding the latest rumor about who might actually be Blanket’s father somewhat hilarious — UK paper The Sun is reporting that Macaulay Culkin, whose nickname is Mac, donated his sperm and conceived the child with an unknown surrogate mother because he would do anything to please his BFF. Culkin is also godfather to the two elder Jackson children. A source explained: “Deep down, I think he always wished Mack was his son. Creating Blanket was the next best thing.” The only real evidence we have that Culkin could be involved is the fact that he and Jackson both agreed that it don’t matter if you’re black or white.

The news is sketchy at best, but it never ceases to amaze us that in the time since Jackson’s death, there have been a dozen people who have speculated that they are these children’s parents. When are we going to let it go?  [Photo: Getty Images]
