To be fair, Omer Bhatti has been on the scene and claiming to be Michael Jackson’s son for years now. But now that the King of Pop is dead, Bhatti is asking for a DNA test. Not to lay claim to Jackson’s fortune — of course not — but to settle the burning question that lurks in the mind of him and, well, no one else: Did Michael Jackson father a child 20-something years ago via a Norwegian one-night stand?
Some sources say that Michael referred to Bhatti as his son after meeting him in 1996. A young Omer wowed MJ with an impression of the singer. For years, this kid has been living on and off at Neverland Ranch and was seen visiting Katherine and Joe yesterday.
Obviously, Omer Bhatti had some sort of relationship and connection with Michael Jackson. But biological? I’m not so sure about that.
In closing, I’d like to congratulate myself for exercising restraint and not using the term “the kid is not my son” even once. It was tempting.
