The Sun published an article on Monday naming former child star Culkin, a close friend of the pop superstar, as the dad of the 7-year-old, aka Blanket.
The boy was delivered via a surrogate, whose identity has never officially been disclosed.
The King of Pop’s death in June has sparked fresh speculation over the child’s parentage.
Culkin, who has yet to publicly speak about the death of his friend, is the latest to be linked to the controversy. But the actor’s representative Michelle Bega has blasted the “preposterous” claims.
When approached by TMZ.com to comment on The Sun‘s article, Bega replied, “The enquiries are too preposterous for us to even acknowledge.”
Jackson claimed to have fathered his two eldest children, Prince Michael, 12, and Paris, 11, with his second wife Deborah Rowe, but even that has come into question, with both British actor Mark Lester and Rowe’s former boss, Jackson’s dermatologist Dr. Arnold Klein, both suggesting they could be the biological fathers.
