Get ready to smack your face and scream, “Home Alone”-style. The word on the street is that Macaulay Culkin might be the biological father of Michael Jackson‘s youngest son, Blanket, also known as Prince Michael II. Michael and Macaulay became besties in 1990 when Macaulay was 10 years old, and the two got some grief for sharing a bed when Macaulay stayed at Neverland Ranch. Macaulay had to be a witness in Michael’s 2005 child molestation trial, and the two stayed friends after. At some point, at least as the rumor mill would have you believe, Michael asked Macaulay to donate sperm. According to a source at The Sun, a British tabloid: “This isn’t just chitter-chatter, even Culkin suspects he’s Blanket’s father. So many names have been mentioned as prospective dads, and this is probably the wackiest yet. But … 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.” Allegedly, the sperm in question was put into a mystery surrogate when Culkin was 22 years old. Macaulay has yet to comment on the paternity rumors.

Um, why did MJ have such a large collection of sperm from various sources? l personally think it would be cool if Macaulay and his girlfriend Mila Kunis adopted Blanket and made a sweet little family.
