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)

Speculation that Omer hit fever pitch when the 25-year-old joined Jackson family members in the front row at superstar’s memorial and was prominently seated in the front row next to the pop star’s children and siblings. Jackson’s brother Jermaine later said Bhatti would be welcomed into the family, if he’s proven a Jackson. “If Omer’s his son, he’s his son,” Jermaine told Britain’s the Daily Mail. ‘We won’t deny it. We are going to give him the same love and care that we give Prince and Paris and Blanket. I can’t clearly say if he is Michael’s but I saw this kid around him.”

In 2004, Us Weekly reported that Jackson did, indeed, acknowledge that he was the father. A source told the magazine: “Jackson has told his closest associates Omer’s mom’s was a Norwegian with whom he had a one-night stand.”
