But in reality, there has been a conspiracy theory that Butler is truly the long-lost son ofMichael Jordan. Jimmy s father abandoned him when he was an infant. When he became a teenager, the baller was abandoned by his mother as well, leaving him all by himself. This ties itself to a story about Mike paying one of his ex-lovers to keep their unplanned child a secret.
Fans found facial similarities between Butler s and Jordan s faces. Both individuals are also about the same height as well. But unfortunately, the theory was proven wrong by Butler himself. He claimed that his father was a man named Jimmy Butler II and his mother was Londa Butler. Even though he was abandoned by them, Jimmy still has them in his life.
