In a video interview with NewsOne.com, Joe Jackson dropped a bombshell this week by saying that Omer Bhatti is indeed Michael Jacksonâ€™s son. Rumors Omer Bhatti was Michael Jacksonâ€™s secret son exploded over the Internet after the 25-year-old was seen sitting with the family at Jacksonâ€™s memorial service.
â€œYes, I knew he had another son,â€ Joe Jackson says in the video. â€œYes, I did.â€
As SnarkFood.com reported earlier, Omer Bhatti lived with his parents, who worked for Jackson, at Neverland Ranch for eight years. Bhattiâ€™s mother, Pia Bhatti, is rumored to have had a one-night stand with Michael Jackson in Oslo in 1984. However, Omer Bhatti has reportedly denied he is Michael Jacksonâ€™s son. â€œMichael is not my father,â€ Bhatti allegedly told a friend, who then leaked the conversation to the London Mirror.
Joe Jackson, Michaelâ€™s father, seems to believe otherwise. â€œ[Omer] looks like a Jackson, acts like a Jackson, can dance like a Jackson,â€ he says in the video interview. Jermaine Jackson has also hinted that he believes Omer Bhatti may be Jacksonâ€™s biological son as well. â€œWe wonâ€™t deny it,â€ Jermaine told The Daily Mail. â€œWe are going to give him the same love and care that we give Prince and Paris and Blanket.â€
According to a 2004 Us Weekly report, Jackson allegedly told close friends that he did have an affair with Pia Bhatti and was indeed Omer Bhattiâ€™s father.
After sitting with Michael Jackson’s family at the pop icon’s funeral, rumors flew that 25 year-old Omer Bhatti was a secret Michael Jackson love child. AÂ childhood resemblance to Michael Jackson in photos and videos fueled the rumors that Bhatti was Jackson’s biological son. However, Bhatti is reportedly now denying the claims he is Jackson’s secret son – saying that the late music superstar was just his “best friend.”
“Michael is not my father,” Omer Bhatti reportedly told a friend, who repeated the conversation to London’s Mirror. “He and I were just very, very close.” Bhatti allegedly told friend Ricky Harlow that he was seated with the family at the Michael Jackson funeral because he was his “closest friend not because I am his son.”
Omer Bhatti lived for eight years with his parents, who worked for Jackson, at the singer’s Neverland Ranch.Â Bhatti allegedly stated that his mother, Pia Bhatti, never had an affair with Michael Jackson – despite rumors that she and Jackson had a one night stand in Oslo in 1984.
Not all of the Jackson family is apparently so sure about Omer Bhatti’s parentage. Jermaine Jackson recently stated that Bhatti would be welcomed into the family should it be proved he was Michael Jackson’s son. Bhatti returned home to Norway following Jackson’s memorial services.
Official results of the Michael Jackson autopsy are expected to be released within the next few days.
The internet is burning up with people looking for more info on Omer Bhatti…the possible love child of Michael Jackson. Omer is a Norwegian rapper who goes by the stage name “O-Bee”. He’s said to be seeking a DNA test to prove he’s Michael’s son. One thing seems certain – Omer has had a personal relationship with Michael Jackson for the past 13 years.
Michael and Omer as a child
As we reported earlier, some say Omer is the product of a one night stand in 1984, with Omer’s mother Pia Bhatti. Some stories say that Pia use to be one of Michael’s nurses, and that Omer had lived at the Neverland Ranch in the 1990s. However, there are other unconfirmed reports that Michael did not meet Pia until 1996. Most, however, agree that Omer first met Michael Jackson in 1996 and moved to Neverland Ranch in 1997
25 year-old Omer would be Michael Jackson’s oldest child, and he bears a striking resemblance to Michael’s youngest son Blanket…and to Michael himself before he went completely surgery-crazy. Could Pia be Blanket’s secret mother?! Is Omer little Blanket’s full-blooded brother??
Omer and Blanket
Michael’s brother Jermaine has reportedly stated that Omer would be welcomed into the family if he could prove that he is Michaels son. Fox reported that the Bhatti family refuses to rule out the possibility that Jackson could be Omer’s father.
Here’s some new Jackson family video footage that allegedly shows Omer at Christmas time. What do you think? Is Omer Michael Jackson’s long-lost love-child?

Things just get stranger by the day in the Michael Jackson saga. Now rumors are flying that the gloved one had a fourth, secret love child who attended his funeral! The young man, 25 year-old dancer Omer Bhatti, sat alongside Jackson’s grieving brothers and sisters during the memorial tribute two weeks ago.
The Sun is reporting that Bhatti is Jackson’s fourth child and that his childhood photos show an uncanny likeness to 7 year-old Blanket, Michael’s youngest “official” child.
Reportedly, Michael told close friends in 2004 that the Norwegian Bhatti was born following a one-night stand in 1984 with Pia Bhatti.
Omer Bhatti is now rumored to be seeking a DNA test to discover the truth. If the test is confirmed, Omar would be Michael’s oldest child, and might join in any contest of Michael’s will. Stay tuned…who knows what the next twist will be in the aftermath of Jackson’s mysterious life and death.
