By now, it seems like the court of public opinion has ruled that Michael Jackson did have a secret lover, but that may not always have been the case. Omer Bhatti was seen visiting the Jackson family over the weekend and is reportedly asking for a DNA test.
I know what you’re thinking: when will these imposters stop coming out of the woodwork just to try and snag some of the MJ fortune? Well sure, that may be the case here, but this 20-something has actually been claiming to be MJ’s son for years…
Omer Bhatti stayed at Neverland Ranch with Michael on and off for the last 14 years. He looks like MJ and he talks like MJ… he even moonwalks like MJ. Apparently, there have even been times where Michael stated that he was Omer’s father.
The speculation about MJ’s “secret son” centers around a one-night stand Michael supposedly had with a woman from Norway (Bhatti’s country of origin) back in the 80s. From Fox:
“Jackson has told several of his closest associates that he is the boy’s father, and that Omer’s mother is a Norwegian fan with whom Jackson had a one-night-stand around 1987.
According to Jackson’s story, because the fan was unable to take care of the baby, she allowed Jackson to send two employees to Oslo to raise the baby as their own. Omer, according to the story Michael offered, was told he was Michael Jackson’s son, but that the fact had to remain a secret in order to ensure his security and privacy.”
Was this woman the alleged “secret girlfriend” that has been alluded to?
Do you think the Jacksons allow a DNA test? Personally, I’m pretty convinced that both MJ and his family knew that he wasn’t able to procreate. If the test comes back and Omer’s a match, then we’ll know that MJ wasn’t shooting blanks.
