Contrary to reports, Omer Bhatti says he's not Michael Jackson's love child.
But is the 25-year-old connected to the late superstar in a different way?
In recent weeks, Omer Bhatti has been said to be Michael Jackson's "secret son," a product of a one-night stand Michael had with his Norwegian mom, Pia.
Omer says it's not true, but rather Michael was just a father figure to him while his family lived at Neverland Ranch when he was a young boy (weird, yes).
We thought that was the end of it.
But today, Star Magazine claims the biological mother of Michael's third child, Prince Michael Jackson II (a.k.a. Blanket) is ... none other than Pia Bhatti.
Is Omer Bhatti's mom Pia also Blanket Jackson's mom?
Blanket was born to an unknown surrogate in 2002. His birth mother has never been ID'd. Debbie Rowe is (supposedly) the mother of Jackson's other kids.
As for Pia Bhatti, the one-time dental hygienist lives with her husband in a middle-class suburb of Oslo, Norway, and refuses all requests for interviews.
"Pia was sworn to secrecy about Blanket," says a source. "Michael liked the mystique. He never wanted anyone to know the truth about any of his children."
The report claims that Omer Bhatti, who dazzled MJ with his moonwalk in 1996, became so close to the pop star that Jackson wanted Pia to carry Blanket.
Of Pia being Blanket’s mom, the source continues: "But you only had to see her with Blanket. She treated him as her own for one very good reason - he is."
