Joe Jackson says Omer Bhatti is Michael’s secret son

With a dad like Joe Jackson, it’s no wonder Michael Jackson turned out to be a crazy drug addict with a melted face. The stage dad from hell recently appeared on News One in an exclusive interview and confirmed that Omer Bhatti, the mystery man who sat with the Jackson family at the televised memorial, is indeed Michael’s son. But as with all things Joe Jackson, it’s hard to know if he’s telling the truth or out of his mind.

Interviewer: There are so many things, so many stories coming out now. The one that just came out a couple of weeks ago is that Michael may have had another child — I think Omar [sic] is his name? Everyone is like, “Oh, he was sitting right there next to Rebbie [at the memorial],” so everyone is trying to connect some dots. Do you know if that is Michael’s other son?

Joe Jackson: Yes, I knew he had another son. Yes, I did.

Interviewer: And he, uh, he looks like a Jackson.

Joe Jackson: Oh, yes. He looks like a Jackson, he acts like a Jackson, he can dance like a Jackson. This boy’s a fantastic dancer. Matter of fact, he teaches dance.

Interviewer: So maybe he’s the future of the family.

Joe Jackson: I don’t know. I can’t say that yet, until I see it happen (Laughs)

I will agree that Omer does bear more than a passing resemblance to Michael, but to confirm paternity based on the notion that he “acts like a Jackson” and “dances like a Jackson” is absolutely ridiculous. But then, pretty much everything that comes out of Joe Jackson’s mouth is ridiculous. It’s pretty obvious that he is hoping this kid is a Jackson because he could be the new family cash cow, along with Paris, Prince and Blanket. But to hear him ramble on, it’s difficult to know if he’s just spewing a bunch of crap so he can keep being on TV, or if he is a senile old man who has no idea what he’s saying anymore.

Joe Jackson is pictured at the BET Awards on June 28, 2009. This is the infamous red carpet appearance where he shamelessly promoted his new record label. No doubt he hopes to get “Acts like a Jackson” Omer Bhatti to sign on. Photos: Fame Pictures.

    Why would you draw a mustache on your face? “Gee what could make me look more like a D-bag today? AH HA!”

  3. Firestarter says:

    He is just a disgusting human being who will use any and all oppotunities to try and make a buck off of his dead son.

    By the way, does anyone know if the man has been buried yet? I have never heard if he was buried or not.

  4. Enonymous says:

    Methinks Joe Jackson is trying to promote Omer Bhatti as Michael Jacskon’s son so he can manage a new Michael with the acceptance of MJ’s fans now that he is dead and have a new cash cow. I saw the kid in some pictures and he did not look at all like the real MJ. Joe Jackson needs to seriously f-ck off already.

  5. omondieu says:

    Ugggh, Joe Jackson looks like the bastard spawn of Jabba the Hutt and a catfish.

  6. Green Is Good says:

    This creep actually thinks he’s still a showbiz player.

    Holy Delusional Ass Batman!

  7. Blondie says:

    Why do people keep talking to this twatwaffle? He’s not saying anything relevant. He’s only saying enough to stay in the spotlight. I say Media Blackout on Joe Jackson!!!

  8. dudewtf says:

    omg he does look like a catfish haha I do think there is something truly wrong w/ this man. I hope he doesnt get close enough to hurt michael’s youngest children.

  9. Gigohead says:

    Joe Jackson is an opportunistic bastard. He would make up anything to sign him/her on his new record company, Big Jive Records.

  10. Jazz says:

    Joe Jackson is a twat. That is all.

  11. Diane says:

    Always and forever, Joe the Wanna Be = )

  12. me says:

    his eyebrows make him look like Josef Fritzl. That’s all I have to say about that.

  13. Jessica says:

    ROFL!!! OMG omondieu, I was thinking the exact same thing!! Great minds must think alike!!! (more catfish though).. hehe!!

  14. Nev says:

    He is a disgusting SOB. He needs to vanish.
    Sad this jerk would be so desperate to make money off his dead son. I wonder why K Jackson will not divorce this jerk.

  15. princess pee says:

    Didn’t Omer say he ISN’T Michael’s son?

    Also, you can’t count ‘resemblance’ if the child resembles a post-cosmetic surgery MJ. Cosmetic surgery doesn’t change your genes. (I love it when babies are born with their parent’s original noses!)

  16. gg says:

    A Catfish! rotfl!

    Shuddup Joe you dickweed eye-hiding shady lying @$$hole.

  17. TD says:

    I totally agree princess pee. His chin and his nose actually look like Michael’s, but after several operations. When did plastic surgery became hereditary?

  18. Ron says:

    All of this attention whoring at his dead sons expense only goes to show you what Micheal said about his father was all true.

    And put that gold nugget Africa away already. You know he got that thing at the Bling Hut at the Galleria.

  19. QB says:

    Omer looks nothing like Michael did before surgery, if Joe wanted more publicity for Omer he should have said that Omer is Blanket real father.

  20. Tia C says:

    lol, I love how no on here believes this story. Goes to show what a stellar reputation evil old Joe has.

  21. Mme X says:

    “Interviewer: Do you know if that is Michael’s other son?

    Joe Jackson: Yes, I knew he had another son. Yes, I did.”

    Important detail: he doesn’t answer the question. He says he “knew he had another son.” He doesn’t say this is the son or is a son. The man is obviously milking this moment for all he can, but I don’t see him answering the question.

  22. CeeJay says:

    I’m no fan of Joe’s, but there are numerous sources claiming that Omar is the son of Michael. Ariana Huffington was one of the first to break the story shortly after the memorial when she was contacted by a friend of the Jackson family. I’m all for beating up on the guy, but let’s not forget that there may be some validity to the concept that Omar is MJ’s son.

  23. Leo says:

    @ CeeJay

    There have been lots of sources in the past that have claimed that certain things were true, only to be proven false down the line. So-called “friends” of other celebrities have spouted many lies to the media, and this may well be such a case. Omer MAY be MJ’s son, but I’ll only believe a DNA test at this point and/or a live confession from Omer himself. Not the media, and sure as hell not Joe Jackson:Limelight Lover.

    Refreshing blog and worthwhile posting. I like MJ’s music a lot. I’ve marked it to revisit later.
