In what a source acknowledges “is probably the wackiest” Jackson progeny rumor yet, the latest possible bio-dad for Michael’s youngest, Blanket, is Macaulay Culkin, the Sun reports. “This isn’t just chitter-chatter, even Culkin suspects he’s Blanket’s father,” the source continues, adding that the actor—godfather of the first two Jacksons and defender of Michael at his 2005 child molestation trial—won’t comment on the matter out of loyalty.
“It is well known Jackson and Macaulay shared a unique bond,” the source says. “Jackson and Culkin were best friends. He was one of the few people Jackson really trusted and Mack never let him down. Really, Jackson idolized him—that’s why he asked Mack to donate sperm. Deep down, I think he always wished Mack was his son. Creating Blanket was the next best thing.”
