Royal what??

From this 1997 interview with KCRW:

KCRW: Guy-Manuel, I understand that your family is actually… There’s some royal blood attached to the family– is that true or is that rumor?

Guy-Manuel: Some what? Some royal…? No.

KCRW: I said, is that simply a rumor?

Guy-Manuel: I think it’s a rumor. I didn’t know!

Thomas: The press is always making up a lot of stories… And as we’re not saying everything, you know, they’re always trying to fill the gaps.
