Mack the daddy

If you think of McCauley Culkin as one of those child stars who could never possibly be an adult, and will forever remain the cheeky boy accidentally left on his Home Alone, the you'll be surprised to hear that The Sun thinks he may have fathered a child - Michael Jackson's youngest child 'Blanket' to be exact.

Hollywood has been burning up with the news that a 'well known Hollywood actor' is the real father of Blanket, and Macauley Culkin of all people, has been implicated as a possible culprit. The pair struck up a firm friendship after Culkin first shot to fame in 1990, with Culkin eventually appearing as a character witness for Jacko during his sex abuse trial. Culkin, 29 is already godfather to Jackson's two older children, Prince Michael and Paris. But according to The Sun and their sources, the King of Pop would 'have loved' it if Macauley was his real son. However, realising that this could never have happened (at least not without a decent time machine) Jacko did the next best thing and asked the child star to donate sperm so he could create his own mini Macauley. Normal eh?

The Sun source said: "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 Jackson and Culkin were best friends. He was one of the few people Jackson really trusted and Mack never let him down. Really, Jackson idolised 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."

Although Culkin is yet to confirm or deny the rumours, it's only a matter of time till MJ pundits start talking about the 'striking resemblance' between Blanket and Culkin - which, quite frankly, doesn't seem to exist. Still, never say never. What do you think?
