REPORT: Michael Jackson Wanted to Adopt Octomom’s Babies

Wow. If this is true, just wow.

British newspaper the Mirror reports that, in the months leading up to his death, Michael Jackson inquired into adopting the mega-brood of Nadya “Octomom” Suleman.

According to Suleman’s former publicist, Victor Munoz, members from Jackson’s camp contacted him numerous times beginning in February in an effort to convince Suleman to give up her kids to the King of Pop. It seems that Jackson, upon hearing that a cash-strapped Suleman was considering giving up her kids for adoption, thought that he might be able to pick up some playmates for his youngest son, Prince Michael II (aka Blanket).

Munoz claims that, after members of Jackson’s camp called him to ask about the kids, the singer himself placed a call.

According to Munoz, Jackson told him, “Blanket would love to have more siblings. I could take care of all the babies, they could live with me and wouldn’t need for anything. They would have a bright future…I want to take care of Nadya. She will be happy and won’t have to worry about caring for her children any more.” 

Despite the Jackson camp’s tenacious efforts, Munoz notes, he never passed on word of the offer to his client. “I just blew it off,” Munoz recalls. “I knew Nadya would never want to get rid of her kids so it wasn’t important.”
