Reportedly the only truth to Omer Bhatti being Michael Jackson‘s secret son is that the late singer treated him like one. Omer and Michael reportedly just had a close relationship after meeting in Europe in the mid-1990s, when Omer was around 11, and although he sat front and center at MJ’s memorial and is currently staying at the Jackson family home in Encino, he was just a friend.
“Everyone knew him as ‘Little Michael’ and Michael referred to him as ‘Little Monkey’ remembers Ricky Harlow, a rocker in the band “Harlow” who was signed to Michael Jackson’s record label in 1996. “They had a father-son type of connection, but I never thought he was his biological father. They met when Little Michael did a contest impersonating Michael Jackson in the mid-1990s and Michael saw it and was blown away and got in contact with the family.”
The Jackson family continues to embrace “Little Michael.” “He lived with Michael like a son. after Michael died, he came to the Jackson family home in Encino. He came along with Michael’s kids.” [Source: People; Photo: Splash News Online]
