While this rumor is supposedly not entirely new, and we do not really believe it, we’re The Hollywood Gossip, so if we don’t tell you when we hear about Michael Jackson supposedly having a secret son, then we’re just slacking off.

Omer Bhatti is this person’s name. This is a picture of him:

He has “been close” (according to some soures) with the pop star since the mid-90s, when he began touring with him and living on and off at Neverland Ranch.

While Michael Jackson supposedly told people that Omer Bhatti is his son (the result of a one-night-stand with a Norwegian fan), others claim he just calls him that, and they met only after he wowed M.J. with an impression of the singer.

That would certainly be ironic, since some reports have suggested that Arnold Klein, not Jackson, is the biological father of two of the late pop star’s children.

“I’m not surprised Michael says he’s the father,” a source told Fox News in 2004. “It’s a fantasy. But these people did not exist in Michael’s life before 1996.”

Omer Bhatti is allegedly convinced that he is Jackson’s son and is “desperate” for a DNA test to prove it. Sounds far fetched to say the least, but they were definitely acquainted. Interestingly, he was spotted yesterday at the Jackson home.

Going to visit Paris and Prince Michael, maybe?
