Joe Jackson Confirms Identity of Michael's Fourth Child

Michael Jackson's father Joe has confirmed that Michael was the biological father of Norwegian dancer Omer Bhatti.

As Hollyscoop had previously reported, Bhatti was given a front row seat to Michael's memorial service earlier this month. He said he was going to request DNA testing to confirm that Michael was his father, but now Joe says it’s not necessary.

He tells, "Yes I knew he had another son, yes I did. He looks like a Jackson, he acts like a Jackson, he can dance like a Jackson. This boy is a fantastic dancer as a matter of fact. I don't know (if he will be the future of the Jacksons). I can't say that yet until I see it happen."

Omer's mother Pia and her husband Riz both worked for Michael at one point, but they refused to talk about their relationship with him. They simply told the UK Sun, "He was the 'King of Pop'. But to us he was so much more."

Back in 2008, Omer spoke publicly about Michael saying, "Loyalty is the most important thing for me. I have contact with Michael, and I think my loyalty to him is the reason we still have our contact. He is an unbelievably good human being."

According to new reports, Bhatti's mother Pia is also the mother of Jackson's youngest son, Prince Michael II, aka Blanket, who was delivered by an anonymous surrogate. Since Bhatti is already 25, don't expect to see his name in custody battle headlines. Are you shocked by the news??
