The five minute video, which was shot in South Africa, is thought to date from 1997 when Omer was a young teen. In one clip Jackson lets Omer take over the wheel as they whip through the water. After Jackson takes the helm to race back to shore Omer turns to the King of Pop and says: “Dad, are you coming with me?” In the video Bhatti’s nose is taped in what appears to be an attempt to copy a look often sported by his “father” in addition to Jackson’s trademark white socks.
Last week, Jackson’s dad Joe, 80, further fueled speculation if Bhatti is Michael Jackson’s son saying: “I knew Michael had another son. He looks like a Jackson, he acts like a Jackson and he can dance like a Jackson.” In addition to the video, The Sun also uncovered bombshell family portraits of proud father, Michael, posing with son Prince Michael AND Omer Bhatti.
The photos, which are part of a sensational family album featuring Omer Bhatti, shows the youngster with his hand tenderly placed on the singer’s shoulder and lovingly embracing 1-year-old Prince Michael. In the birthday pictures the resemblance between young Omer and Jackson is uncanny.
Omer, now 25, has been staying with the Jackson family at their Los Angeles home following the 50-year-old Thriller star’s heart attack on June 25. Jackson is said to have confessed to pals five years ago that he had a one-night stand with Omer’s mother Pia and the child was his. Sources close to Jackson said: “Omer was always with him. They dressed the same, looked the same and even danced the same. They certainly acted like father and son. Everyone used to comment on how similar they looked. Omer was even nicknamed ‘Little Michael’.”
Our source said of the star’s relationship with Omer: “They would affectionately call each other Doo Doo or Doo Doo Head.” Doo Doo was the childlike term of affection that Jackson reserved for those closest to him including Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin. In the photos it is written on a party hat Omer wears.
