A seemingly absurd rumor we reported last week that Norweigan-born Omer Bhatti, 25, is Michael Jackson’s secret son just got a little bit less absurd.
Omer Bhatti claims that Jackson fathered him after a one-night stand with his mother Pia. Yeah, right, we thought, but this has been lent credence by the revelation he sat with the family at the singer’s memorial service July 7.
Here is Bhatti in the front row ...
LOVE CHILD: Is this the secret son of Michael Jackson next to the late King of Pop's son Prince and his sister Rebbie Jackson at the memorial service? It sure looks like it.
Of course, this does not prove his relationship to Jackson. But when asked about his son’s appearance at the Staples Center event, Pia's husband Riz said:
“Yeah, yeah, I know all of this because I was watching. I told my wife. Just wait until the press see this. It’s not going to be a small thing.”
Presumably Riz is cool with the fact that MJ is Omer's dad.
Omer is believed to be in L.A. waiting to take a DNA test to prove whether or not he is Jackson’s son, and is spending time at the Jackson’s family home.
Related or not, Jackson did know him in some capacity since the '90s when he lived on and off at Neverland (weird in itself) and even toured with the singer.
Some say that Jackson claimed Omer Bhatti was his son, others say he just referred to him as that (as in a term of endearment) but it's not technically true.
