Michael Strahan does NOT have an illegitimate son, despite a late and wrong tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this claim yet again. We’re told it’s “not true.”

As Gossip Cop reported, a 21-year-old man named David Brown is alleging he’s the former NFL player’s secret love child, but there’s no valid evidence to back up his claims. Now, Star is reporting the story as if Strahan actually has a “long-lost son,” simply because Brown “shares the former NFL star’s famous gap-toothed grin.”

The magazine goes on to purport Strahan hired a private investigator, who supposedly told Brown he’s willing to take a paternity test, but “only at a Park Avenue lab of his choosing.” Brown turned down the offer, claims the outlet, because he was suspicious Strahan “wanted the results to go a certain way.” Gossip Cop was previously told by a reliable source that the man “never showed up” for the paternity test.

In fact, Gossip Cop busted this identical story about the NFL star last week when the National Enquirer also wrongly alleged Strahan had an illegitimate child. We checked in with a close to Strahan, who assured us the story was “ridiculous” and “not true.” Of course, the claim isn’t any more accurate now.

Not surprisingly, this isn’t the first time we have corrected Star for publishing a tall tale about the “Good Morning America” anchor. We debunked the tabloid in May for falsely claiming Strahan was writing a $10 million tell-all memoir about Kelly Ripa. Much like that inaccurate report, the latest one about Strahan’s illegitimate son is equally untrue.
