The kid is not his son.
No, really, this time there's been an actual denial, and an emphatic one.
Of all the people rumored to be Michael Jackson's kids' real parents (Dr. Arnold Klein, Mark Lester, Pia Bhatti) or rumored to be Michael's kids themselves (Prince Michael Malachi Jet Jackson, Omer Bhatti), none have denied it.
Until now. We can count Macaulay Culkin out of the paternity lottery.
The 29-year-old actor's press agent claims the actor is not the biological father of Michael Jackson's son Blanket, which a UK tabloid reported on Monday.
SHOCKER: Prince Michael Jackson II was not born of Macaulay Culkin's DNA.
The story said Culkin donated sperm to create Blanket. Since several other Jackson friends actually did donate sperm, it's not as far-flung as you think.
Still, Culkin's rep, Michelle Bega, has issued the following statement:
"The inquiries are too preposterous for us to even acknowledge."
We'll take that as a no. Sorry to burst your bubble, Blanket.
