In a bizarre new twist, former Philadelphia abortionist and convicted murderer Kermit Gosnell claims he delivered actor Will Smith as a baby.

The Daily Mail reports Gosnell recently wrote a letter to the actor, asking for help to appeal his conviction. He continues to claim that he is innocent.

Gosnell operated an abortion clinic described as a “house of horrors” in Philadelphia for three decades. In 2013, a jury convicted Gosnell of murdering three newborn babies and contributing to the death of a female patient, along with numerous other crimes.

According to court testimony, Gosnell would perform illegal abortions on late-term babies, inducing live births and then stabbing the newborns in the backs of their necks with scissors to kill them.

The letter Gosnell wrote to Smith says he delivered the star while working as a resident in 1968 at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia. Gosnell claims he performed the delivery because Caroline Smith’s doctor, Leopold Lowenberg, was stuck in traffic and did not make it into the hospital in time to deliver Will. This was before Gosnell opened his notorious abortion clinic.

“I’m fond of asserting that there could never be a Men in Black if I had dropped you on your head,” Gosnell wrote in the letter, dated Nov. 14, 2016.

Here’s more from the Mail:

Gosnell told the story of how he delivered Smith on September 25 1968 to Phelim McAleer, co-author of a scathing book about the abortionist who is now serving out his time at the Pennsylvania State Correctional Institution in Huntingdon.

He told McAleer he had not received a reply from Smith in a telephone interview …

McAleer told in an exclusive interview that Gosnell regularly writes to him and co-author Ann McElhinney. ‘And he CCs us in on other correspondence.

‘He doesn’t get any other visitors and he is also a narcissist. He may not be happy with how we say it all the time, but we are reporting what he is saying.

‘He sent us a bunch of letters and he included this one to Will Smith. I am sure Will Smith won’t want this coming out as his grandmother was a very important person in his life, but for Gosnell this was no big thing.’

In the letter, Gosnell told Smith that he is confident “in eventual vindication” and release from prison. Gosnell also claimed to know Smith’s grandmother, Helen Bright, and said she would support his case.

Gosnell currently is serving three life sentences in the Huntington Correctional Institution in Pennsylvania.

In January, Regnery Publishing released the book Gosnell: The Untold Story of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer by Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer. The book follows Gosnell’s life and his gruesome abortion practice.

In a 30-year killing spree, he is thought to have killed hundreds, perhaps thousands of babies. However, investigators said Gosnell destroyed most of the evidence that possibly could have led to further convictions.
