Washington: Ashton Kutcher, who has been rocked by allegations of infidelity, has landed himself in yet another controversy following an Internet rumour suggesting that he is the mystery father of January Jones’ newborn.
The rumour was sparked after the website BlindGossip.com ran a blind item about an unnamed actress’ pregnancy, detailing all events that took place in her life.
“This married actor had a one-night stand with one of his exes, who is an actress in an acclaimed television show. She wound up pregnant. The actor’s wife found out about the baby, and, to no one’s surprise, went completely ballistic. Both the actor and his wife tried every tactic (money, lawyers, threats to ruin her career) to convince the ex to terminate the pregnancy,” Fox News quoted the website as saying.
The online gossip blogger Michael K. of DListed.com then posted an item that said “all signs point to January Jones.”
The ‘Mad Men’ star gave birth to her son, Xander, in September, but did not list a father on the birth certificate, as California does not require the mother to put a father’s name on the birth certificate, but to add one at a later date requires legal filings.
Amid all the speculation Jones has refused to divulge the identity of Xander’s father since she announced she was pregnant earlier this year.
