Breaking news – Billie Jean wasn’t lying and Micheal Jackson did leave a love child hanging around, specifically in Norway.
Michael Jackson’s brother Jermaine has vowed to welcome Omer Bhatti into the Jackson clan if he proves to be the singer’s fourth child.
The 25-year-old Norwegian rapper sat in the front row with the Jackson family at the singer’s memorial service in Los Angeles two weeks ago.
Jermaine Jackson said he wasn’t yet sure whether Omer, said to have been the result of a one-stand stand, was his brother’s son. But if he was a Jackson, he would be treated exactly the same as Michael’s three younger children, he said.
‘If Omer’s his son, he’s his son,’ Jermaine declared yesterday.
‘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.’
Jermaine said Omer, who as a child looked remarkably like Jackson’s seven-year-old son Blanket, was moved to the family seats at the memorial service by Jackson’s eldest sister Rebbie. She wanted him closer to their mother, Katherine.
Omer is said to be seeking a DNA test to find out whether Jackson was his father.
In dark sunglasses and a black suit, he looked just like a member of the family as he bowed his head while listening to tributes to the King of Pop at the July 7 service.
The Thriller singer reportedly told close friends several years ago that he fathered Omer after a one-night stand with a Norwegian fan in 1984.

The one gem I did quite like was how a ‘renowned’ psychic had a vision seeing MJ meeting with Elvis. The two kings apparently had a bit of a sing-a-long and a dance together. (Wipes tears of mirth from eyes)
‘Michael Greeted By Elvis — In Heaven,’ . . . Says Psychic
LANTANA, FL — A wide-eyed and incredulous Michael Jackson no sooner climbed the stairway to Heaven when he was met at the “Pearly Gates” by a smiling Elvis Presley, says a top Internet psychic known to millions of webheads as “Chele.”
“It was Thursday, around 5:30 PM, when I started seeing these images in my head,” the young psychic tells IUDEXonline.
“I saw Michael Jackson . . . his face close up. He looked pale, nervous. Lots of clouds around. He was wearing one of his band-type costumes, walking up a stairway. Ghostly…plain WEIRD, she said. At first I thought it was some MTV video flashing before me.
“Next, Michael’s at a shiny, golden gate, which opens as fast as I see it. Then there’s this smiling, really handsome-looking guy in a pure white, star-studded jumpsuit standing just inside, with his arms outstretched. At first I thought, ‘is this God? I don’t see any white beard’ and then it dawned on me — that’s Elvis Presley!
“So then these two “Kings” go eye-to-eye with each other, shaking hands and embracing, like long lost friends who’ve suddenly come back together. It seemed like a really happy occasion,” she said. “That’s when the music began.
“Michael Jackson started dancing when Elvis sang “Blue Suede Shoes.” Then Michael cuts loose with his “Beat it” song. It was really neat seeing these two carrying on, ‘moonwalking,’ moving their hips and all,” she said.
“Michael started singing ‘Thriller,” and all Hell broke loose,” she added, correcting herself to say ‘Heaven.’
“People started emerging from the clouds, dancing, just like in the “Thriller” video! I thought I recognized Tiny Tim in the crowd — and Frank Sinatra,” she added. “I could even hear Vincent Price doing his disembodied narration.
“Michael was, like, really excited, screaming “Hi Kurt, Hi John, Hi James, Hi Buddy, Hi Jim,” Chele said. “One long-haired guy came up to Michael, and I couldn’t tell if it was John Lennon or Jesus Himself!
“But when Michael said “Hi Farrah,’ I got this really weird feeling, and the ‘video’ stopped. I turned on the TV and saw that Michael Jackson had just passed away — for real.”
Now that sounds plausible to me… I mean come on she said ‘for real’.
But hang on, if Elvis isn’t dead then who was that meeting MJ in heaven? Hmmm the plot thickens.
According to the Lunar Republic Society, the crater, previously designated as Posidonius J, is located in the Moon’s Lake of Dreams (Lacus Somniorum).
The moon has always been symbolic throughout Michael’s life.
So not content with being the most mourned person ever, old MJ has decided to visit us from the grave…
In the latest Michael Jackson conspiracy theory, fans and producers of the Larry King show claim that Michael Jackson’s ghost was spotted during the filming of a segment at the now ‘haunted’ Neverland Ranch.
Below is the article from the Daily Mail and the accompanying ‘proof’.
‘Ghost’ of Michael Jackson caught on camera pacing the corridors of Neverland
His ghoulish hit Thriller merged music with horror and Michael Jackson certainly understood the children’s thrill of being spooked silly.
So he probably would have loved to hear about the latest creepy goings-on in Neverland.
An unexplained shadow filmed inside his former home has sparked wild speculation among his fans that his spirit is haunting the halls.
The alleged supernatural sighting is the latest in a string of bizarre rumours to emerge after his death nearly two weeks ago.
These include reports the late singer will tour the world via hologram and that he will be buried without his brain.
The pop star’s apparent poltergeist was spotted during a live American TV tour of Neverland by his close friend Miko Brando for the Larry King Live show.
Neither the presenter – the son of screen legend Marlon – nor the cameraman noticed the spectre, which appeared to move like a shadow at the far end of a long hallway.
But after it was posted on YouTube fans picked up the shadow and rumours spread across the internet like wildfire.
Viewer comments and chat forums have been debating whether it could be Jackson’s spirit or simply a shadow of an unseen crew member.
Some fans have linked the shadow with Peter Pan, who Jackson was rumoured to have modelled his adult life on and why he named his fantasy land ranch Neverland.
The children’s character lost his shadow in the famous J M Barrie tale before Wendy sews it back on.
On YouTube one user said: ‘Yes, that is MJ, even the hair style silhouette everything..!! Immortal!’
Another wrote: ‘That is so weird. I have played it over five times now and I have to admit that it does resemble MJ. I can’t believe I am saying that actually. It’s his image.’
But others were not so convinced.
‘It is the shadow of a TV crew person in the room, idiot people. Get a grip… that’s not genuine ghost footage!’ wrote tubs1000.
Today at 13:00 at Sandton City Square Gareth Cliff, 5FM and all MJ fans are going to do a memorial moonwalk.
To commemorate the King of Pop’s passing everyone in JHB is invited to go down to Sandton and show off their moonwalking abilities.
For all of you who can’t make it to the square I dare you to walk the walk wherever you are.
And here’s a nifty instructional video so you can brush up on your moves and be the envy of the office today!
As I am sure everyone in the world knows by now Michael Jackson, an iconic figure in music and entertainment, has passed away. I could have some sarcie comments ready about the troubled star but I was actually a huge fan of his and am too much in shock to make any jokes. Although that could change in a few days…
But my heart goes out to his family and friends and fans. I know the havoc that a sudden death can cause and my prayers are with them in this difficult time. Despite all his issues and problems no one can deny that Micahel Jackson was a legend and the world mourns the loss of a brilliant musician.
Below is an expert from an article in the Daily Mail. The full article can be read here.
A life in the limelight aged five to 50: Why we were fascinated by Wacko Jacko
From a successful child star to the biggest performer on the planet, Michael Jackson’s entire life has been played out under the spotlight of both the global media and an adoring public.
The boy who began his career as a cute youngster in The Jackson 5 grew up to be one of the most iconic and enigmatic figures in music history.
But despite his fame and success, Jackson – who died last night – courted controversy and acclaim in equal measure.
Despite his child stardom, it was as a solo artist that he achieved global fame with smash hits such as Billie Jean and Bad.
Thriller, released in 1982, is the biggest-selling album of all time, shifting 65m copies, according to the Guinness Book of World Records.
But it was the tales of oxygen chambers, chimp chums, shopping sprees and physical transformation that have brought intrigue and amusement and earned the singer the nickname Wacko Jacko.
Disquiet over the 50-year-old star’s behaviour turned to alarm after a documentary in which the singer pronounced sharing a bedroom with a child to be “charming” and an incident in Germany in which he dangled his baby son Prince Michael II over a balcony.
In a 2003 interview with Martin Bashir, which was supposed to bolster Jackson’s image, the singer said of sharing a bed with a young boy: “It’s a beautiful thing.
“It’s very right, it’s very loving. Because what’s wrong with sharing a love?”
A warrant was issued for his arrest on charges of sexually molesting 12-year-old Gavin Arvizo. Jackson surrendered himself to police amid a media furore.
He pleaded not guilty to the allegations and after a trial conducted in the full glare of the world’s media, Jackson was cleared of all the charges.
After his acquittal in 2005, Jackson kept a low profile.
The talented Jackson children had a tough upbringing and as he grew up, his appearance altered drastically.
Jackson denied undergoing extensive plastic surgery, claiming instead he suffered from a skin condition called vitiligo and he had treatment to improve his breathing and singing.
The Peter Pan of pop’s Neverland ranch was a child-like fantasy complete with a zoo, Ferris wheel, roller-coaster and video arcade.
Eyebrows were further raised when Jackson took to sleeping in an oxygen chamber and adopted a chimp named Bubbles as a companion.
He often conveyed an androgynous image and his marriage to Lisa Marie Presley, the daughter of Elvis Presley, was greeted with some surprise.
The 1994 union, which collapsed after 19 months, came just months after the singer’s reputation was rocked by allegations of child abuse by 13-year-old Jordy Chandler.
He reportedly settled the case out of court for £11 million (20 million dollars) although he always denied wrong-doing.
Jackson’s second short-lived marriage, in contrast to the high profile of his first, was to nurse Debbie Rowe in 1996.
He named their two children after himself – Prince Michael Jackson and Paris Michael Katherine, and took an unusual approach to protecting them from the media glare by covering their faces.
After the couple divorced in 1999, Jackson took on sole responsibility for their children’s upbringing.
His third child, Prince Michael II, was born to a mystery surrogate mother he never even met.
In 2002, Jackson caused a public outcry by dangling the baby – referred to as “Blanket” – out of a third-floor hotel balcony in front of the world’s press. He later said he regretted the incident.
In November last year, Jackson and an Arab sheikh suing him at the High Court in London for £4.7 million parted ‘amicably’ after agreeing a settlement to their dispute.
