Michael Jackson, Macaulay Culkin

UPDATE: Culkin's rep, Michelle Bega, has released the following statement to E! News: "The inquiries are too preposterous for us to even acknowledge."


Don't act like you didn't see this coming.

After more than two months of rumor after rumor regarding the paternity of Michael Jackson's children, this one takes the cake.

Nope, it's not another statement from Dr. Arnold Klein or former Oliver! child star Mark Lester. This one hits a little closer to Home (Alone)...

The U.K.'s Sun is reporting sources close to Jackson claiming that 7-year-old Blanket is none other than Macaulay Culkin's offspring.

The paper's source claims M.J. asked the child star to donate sperm and "Mack never let him down...Deep down, I think he always wished Mack was his son. Creating Blanket was the next best thing."

Supposedly, Mila Kunis' BF even speculates that he may be a dad.

"This isn't just chitter-chatter," the Sun's source says. "Even Culkin suspects he's Blanket's father."

Yeah, we're not really buyin' it either.
