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]
Call us cynical, but Paris Hilton‘s latest attempt to get attention seems beyond shameless. The showbiz world has been focusing largely on the sudden death of Michael Jackson in the last month, and hey, that’s taken the shine off La Hilton, especially when she’s got a vanity-project film to promote. So what better than to advertise yourself as the “inspiration” for Jackson’s daughter Paris’s name?
“My mom and Michael went to high school together and they were best friends since they were 13. So I grew up knowing Michael very well and when he had his daughter, he always loved the name Paris and grew up being an uncle to me. So he asked my mom if it was okay and of course she said yes and I think she’s such a beautiful little girl and I’m proud we have the same name,” she gushed to Extra.
If anyone ever wants to learn how NOT to break up with your partner, they just need to look at Peter Andre and Katie Price for about five minutes. In the latest depressing installment of their public slanging match, Pete is now going to take legal action against his estranged wife for suggesting he was unfaithful during their marriage.
“Well, you know when you split up with someone you hear things, so who knows what’s true, what’s not? But as far as I know I think he was faithful,” Katie said on breakfast show GM:TV. Furious Pete’s rep then fired back that he was “taking legal action.”
Still, doesn’t Katie look terrific at the Selfridges launch of her book? Ahem.
What with getting our heads in a spin over the “they’re breaking up!” “Angie’s stormed out!” “they’re having another baby!” tsunami of stories about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie‘s relationship, we’d almost forgotten about Angie’s other life of saving the world and stuff. But the actress has just yesterday returned to Iraq with son Maddox to bring attention to the plight of the country’s displaced people.
The UN Refugee Agency ambassador visited refugees who had to escape their war-torn villages, and said, “This is a moment where things seem to be improving on the ground, but Iraqis need a lot of support and help to rebuild their lives.” She’s so cool. And looks gorgeous even in a bullet-proof vest. Sigh. [Photos: Splash News Online]
Nas and Kelis‘ new little bundle of joy may have been through a lot already in his first few hours of life, but it looks like the litle man will be well taken care of. Kelis was awarded $55,000 per month in combined spousal and child support today and Nas also must pay the mortgage on their Los Angeles home. Nas must shell out additional money for the baby nurse, prenatal expenses, and medical insurance – and the expense he probably liked most of all – $35,000 to Laura Wasser, Kelis’ divorce attorney.

Sure they may be broken up right this second, but we have a hunch Sam Ronson and Lindsay Lohan will be back together faster than you can say ‘Labor Pains sucked.’ So here’s a little piece of sexy SamRon gossip to help you imagine what their reunion will be like: Apparently, the DJ bought her sweet red-haired freak a ton of sex toys for her birthday earlier this month.
“Samantha presented her with a gift guaranteed to create lots of buzz – a big, brightly gift-wrapped basket of sex toys selected by herself,” said a pal. “She spent hours shopping Hollywood’s erotic emporiums for the items.”
How sweet! Nothing says ‘I love you’ like a gift basket full of vibrators. [Photo: Splash News Online]
From the Jimmy Neutron hairdo to the lace gloves to the shoulder-padded jumpsuit to the 25lbs of pearls, Rihannacertainly made heads turn at the UK premiere of Inglourious Basterds. With the exception of her va-va-voom red lipstick, we can’t help but hate this cluttered ensemble.
Get a closer look at Rihanna’s fashion disaster below, as well as fellow red carpet goers Mickey Rourke, Diane Kruger, and Neve Campbell.
You know Pixar movies are all cute and adorable and whatnot, that is until someone has the bright idea of handing a real life Rat an array of tiny instruments and DEAR F**KING GOD IS THAT A SMALL RAT ORCHESTRA I HEAR PLAYING IN MY CEILING? Oh wait, no, that’s impossible:
Single Ellen, from Roosendaal, Holland, said her beloved pets — who cannot actually play the instruments — are “really talented actors”.
She said: ”They know exactly how to pose and both are really talented actors we have a really good understanding. They always know what I am saying.”
Well, if that’s the case I’m going to guess these rats think you’re an idiot, Ellen. An idiot with a penchant for finding adorably tiny instruments! As seen in this gallery — we like the sax and bass player combo the best:
Behold, Twihards – it’s the first pic of rumored couple Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewartreunited for the first time since May! The pair – along with third wheel Taylor Lautner – appeared together in a panel at Comic-Con in San Diego today to discuss New Moon, the upcoming installment of the Twilight series.
We’re following the action on Twitter, where fans, bloggers and journalists are furiously typing in updates and posting pics of New Moon mania. People magazine devoted their cover story this week to Rob’s deep and desperate love for the aloof Kristen, but we don’t see much chemistry in this pic or the video below (all we see are a bunch of bedraggled, possibly hungover hipsters). Do you think there’s a spark? [Photo: WireImage]
