Barack and Michelle Obama with their daughters, Sasha and Malia
False Rumors About The Obama Family That Everyone Believes
Lifestyle News
Intense public scrutiny left the Obama family vulnerable to intentional misrepresentation in the media, and several rumors have persisted, even though they’ve been firmly debunked.
In 2004, a story emerged that Barack Obama was a Muslim, which gained traction during the 2008 election period. It turned out to be entirely false: Barack is a Christian.
The eldest Obama daughter, Malia, was said to be pregnant with the ninth child of the rapper, Future. She had no verifiable connection with him, and the rumor dates back to 2022.
Michelle Obama's mom, Marian Robinson,who has lived in the White House, was said to be receiving an annual $160,000 pension for her troubles — again this was completely false.
In 2017, Sasha Obama was said to have crashed a $1 million Bugatti Veyron – a gift from her father — into a lake. No evidence of the crash or even the car was ever produced.
An Obama divorce was reported to be imminent in 2019 — a repeat of previous, similar falsehoods. On October 3, 2023, the couple celebrated their 31st wedding anniversary.
