Is Omer MJ's "Love Child"?

Posted: 04:04 PM ET

Joe Jackson says he is, but many, including Omer Bhatti himself, deny it's so.  Tonight on LKL, Nisha Kataria, who lived a few months at Neverland, will tell her stories about Michael and Omer.  In the meantime, some perspective from the man who interviewed Joe Jackson.

I think it is unlikely, but only time will tell the tale.

Dirty Diana   July 31st, 2009 4:09 pm ET

I think Joe Jackson has everyone fooled. He says the most outlandish things to get everyone talking. I think he has the last laugh on all of us.

Jacquelyn   July 31st, 2009 4:22 pm ET

What are you doing CNN, recycling stories?

Joe Jackson is making a fool out of the media. About time for what you all did to Michael.

Luda   July 31st, 2009 4:31 pm ET

Nisha Kataria, who lived a few months at Neverland, will tell her stories about Michael and Omer.

Yeah, Well, the problem is that everyone have their stories but no one knows the real story....

Lisa S   July 31st, 2009 4:32 pm ET

Why do they ask Joe Jackson?? He doesnt know anything about the family. He should focus on getting to know the poeple that are already in his family instead of running around saying a -norwegan guy is his grandson. This is hte man who learned from fans, not family about his sons death.

How on earth would Joe Jackson know anything about this? He hardly spoke to Michael the last years. This family is not function. Grandfather running around to one TV station after the other, grandmother living in another town trying to create an as normal life as possible for the grandchildren. One aunt running around screaming murder. One uncle saying we must bury our son in Neverland and grandmother saying never Neverland. Why do they still talk to media at all and why do they not agree on a statement so at least they can show up an united front. All this is just negative PR for the family.

There is nobody who can demand a DNA apart from Omer himself and he denies that he is Michaels son so what is Joe Jacksons problem?

Jacquelyn   July 31st, 2009 4:34 pm ET

Lisa S

First of all he never said Omer is his Michael son. Dont you see he is working the media. The man is a businessman he knows what he is doing. And Joe didnt start the negative PR. The media did that along time ago.

Jacquelyn   July 31st, 2009 4:36 pm ET


Yeah, Well, the problem is that everyone have their stories but no one knows the real story

You know you are the best, Right 🙂

Toni   July 31st, 2009 4:42 pm ET

HI!!!!! I'm back. I just got through telling Belgium my thoughts ever so graciously.
I'm beginning to laugh at / with Joe. It is almost like he is playing with the medias heads. Good for him. However I do feel for Omar being pushed back out into the media now. Maybe his parents need to come over and tell the nosy American media the truth, not that they should have to.
Adrienne, I dont trust the LAPD either. Look what they put Michael through alredywhen he was alive. Then, when he was flown by Sheriffs helicopter to the coroners office, he was suppose to have 2 security guards at all times with his body. So why then did all of the grusome stories come out about his body? Nope...I Dont Trust Anyone.

Toni   July 31st, 2009 4:43 pm ET

Thats not fair, I thought I was the best.

Jacquelyn   July 31st, 2009 4:46 pm ET


You are AWESOME at its BEST 🙂

Yes I dont trust anyone either. Never did. Now when they start making arrest and making some sense out of this case, I might start to change my mind.

Lisa S   July 31st, 2009 4:47 pm ET

Jaqueline, my question was why media ask Joe Jackson. That is the question everybody shoud ask.

I mean, it cant be to get an answer or information. The only purpose is to creat a story and sell papers.

Adrienne   July 31st, 2009 4:52 pm ET

Why should we trust anyone, all they do is spread dirt, dirt, and more dirt..

Luda   July 31st, 2009 5:00 pm ET

Michael is the Best!!! 🙂

Toni   July 31st, 2009 5:02 pm ET

CNN: The children are safe {THANK GOD} where their daddy wanted them, It is absolutely nobodys business if he fathered them {personally}, and if he wanted anyone to know if he had a 4th child he would have told us. ALL of that crap is only going to hurt his chlidren, and little bit of dignity he had/has left.
The ONLY focus now, should be the persons responsible for his death.
Live up to your name for once of being "the best new station" cause you're fading in my neck of the woods.
Every person on your news staff talk about how much they love their own children...So why do you trash Michael in front of his?

helena   July 31st, 2009 5:03 pm ET

god bless him if he is or is not Michael son. Michael loved him as if he was his own so either way its personal and does not concern us. so i think everyone should give it a rest!!! I think the focus should be on the B*rstards who aided in Jackson's death and take them down for destroying a wonderful and great man...

Chris   July 31st, 2009 5:09 pm ET

Could you ask why the boy lived with MJ ... was MJ helping the family?
It seems he was with him along time... and very much part of the family and still is...

Adrienne   July 31st, 2009 5:14 pm ET

Do I take it correclty that some person that worked at Neverland is on tonight?? And someone else who worked with MJ and the family?? I don't think I will watch.. I just want answers to the investigation. But, I guess I won't get it here. Maybe Geraldo will help us.

Maureen (UK)   July 31st, 2009 5:15 pm ET

I think Joe Jackson really means that Omer is, "one of the family" because Omer lived in Michael's house and was treated like a son. I think he just wants to make Omer feel that he's still one of the Jacksons, even though we've lost Micheal.

Toni   July 31st, 2009 5:21 pm ET

All I know is one of Michaels supposed friend said that Michael saw Omar at a concert in {whatever country hes from} and because he moved and danced just like Michael, that Michael was mesmerized by him and wanted to meet him. I dont know what happened after, But I think Omar and his parents lived at Neverland for either 8 or 11 yrs.

Toni   July 31st, 2009 5:34 pm ET

My God. If Omar is Michaels son then we know he definately inherited Michaels brains. After all this rat race, would you want to admit you are Michael Jacksons son? God Bless him if he is and just not saying it. But I do think unless he gets a DNA done now, the press will never leave him alone. This poor guy has already had a target planted on his soul. This label will be on this guy for the rest of his life, especially if he keeps following in Michaels footsteps, which was apparently his dream. Another very sad story that should have never been thrown into the public eye.

Lori   July 31st, 2009 5:37 pm ET

I think Joeseph Jackson is a master at manipulating the press and keeping Michael Jackson's story on the front burner EVERYWHERE.
Let's not forget that Joe Jackson was the first to cry "foul play" and look how that is turning out. Anyone who doesn't think Joe Jackson does not know what he's doing is shortsighted. The press like to right Joe off, but, Joe Jackson is a promoter, he is working the press, he is working the deal, he is cagey....

We do not know what Joe knows, but I bet he knows way more than we do!

Lori   July 31st, 2009 5:40 pm ET

Joe sets the hook and the media takes the bait every single time

No 1 mjfan   July 31st, 2009 5:45 pm ET

All this gossip going on about Omer... i ask, did Omer come out to any media to say MJ is his father or that he wants to know if mike is his fatther ??? They say he is seeking DNA, if that is true , for what???

if he lived with mike for years, why didint they do the DNA then??? As for me, if ACTUALLY Omer is SUSPECTING sine his adulthood till now if micheal is his father or not, was with him and in contact with him all these years but did not bother to get the DNA test, only to come out NOW mike is dead, to talk about DNA... then i say he's A BIG FOOL !!!

Malaika   July 31st, 2009 5:48 pm ET

Omer is not MJ's child, i dnt knw why Larry is asking? Larry please its time u stop this gossip journalisim!!!

No 1 mjfan   July 31st, 2009 5:48 pm ET

.... Omer , if actally ure seeking to know who ure dad is, there's no one better to ask than your MUM simple!!!

Adrienne   July 31st, 2009 5:53 pm ET

Can someone answer this... What is the truth about the autopsy and tox report not being released to the public at all??

No 1 mjfan   July 31st, 2009 5:56 pm ET

For once i think Joe is right when he said that he believes micheal would have lived longer if he/Joe were around his business affairs.

To me, that is very true cos joe dosent care when it comes to managing mike's biz. . He is always suspicious of leech like people and wouldnt let anyone with their own interest around micheal. If joe was around micheal, no way will he let micheal bring a doc in his home talk of give him propofol... Joe would have made sure micheal got off those medications, get back in great shape n health b4 signing the london concerts!

Lisa S   July 31st, 2009 5:59 pm ET

This is sooo tireiring. Why cant CNN do some old fashioned research? There has already been a story about this years ago. If CNN looked back in archives and old article they have the answer to this on black and white. If they know need to have the answer so badly. I dont understand why this is so important to them, but that is me.

Adrienne   July 31st, 2009 6:00 pm ET

No 1 mjfan- I agree with you that if Joe would have managed MJs affairs, he'd still be around.

I don't know if any of guys remember, but I remember when MJ was still living in Encino. I think things for him started falling apart when he left home. It is just so sad that MJ couldn't trust anyone, except his kids, and no one else in his inner cricle really seemed to care.

Jacquelyn   July 31st, 2009 6:00 pm ET

No 1 mjfan

I agree, and I voiced that very same thing. Joe was a very good businessman and none of this would have ever happened if he was still in the scene. Know as soon as Joe was moved out of the picture here comes the leeches and vultures.

Malaika   July 31st, 2009 6:01 pm ET

Adrienne.... i honestly think its time LAPD gets investigated, why the secrecy? i dnt knw wat 2 make of this honestly, i was hoping they wl tell us (MJ-mega-fans) abt the report, nw this???

Jacquelyn   July 31st, 2009 6:10 pm ET


Well supposedly they are doing a full-fledged investigation and dont want anything to get out.

I knew something was going to come up with not them giving out the results.

Toni   July 31st, 2009 6:26 pm ET

Adrienne, Maybe they dont want to because it shows only diprivan, and they still want Michael considered a drug addict. So why put the truth out there.
Remember what I said.....If Michael was going to be put under anesthesia {completely under} no pain would have disturbed this. So if demerol was in his system...Why. Why would he take a pain med when he was going under anest. There would be no need for it. The same with the anxiety and anti-depressant. If those were in his system...why. And remember the 5 fresh needle marks on the neck? Did the good ole doc inject Michael with these drugs to make it look like he overdosed? Docs on CNN have all said Michael could not have injected himself in the neck.
I hope not, but is this what they are covering up?
And remember what LAPD put him through when he was arrested for , you know. How many of that group are also involved in this investigation. It's sick and sad, and we may never know. Another screwed up case by the LAPD.Not to start the investigation for 2-3 weeks later should have said it all.
It's beginning to look like another witch hunt on his drug addiction instead of what and who is responsible for his death.

Art in LA   July 31st, 2009 6:28 pm ET

This is going to sound it goes.

The people that are holding the rights to whatever MJ left behind are mourning all the way to the BANK.

The more twist and turns (even if they have to create it themselves) the story takes the more $$$$$ at the end of the rainbow.

No 1 mjfan   July 31st, 2009 6:29 pm ET

..... From the chefs statement, Quack doc murray brings up micheals food in the mornings... HOW CAN MICHEAL ALLOW THAT KIND OF A THING??? What if the man has been poisoning the food gradually???

How can micheal be that trusting??? If i were a big mega star with a lot of enemies as MJ , i will never allow ANYONE NOT from my nuclear family to come close to wat i eat or drink...

The investigators should check if the DOC has been POISONING micheals foods cos he started working 2 weeks to the concerts and in that same month, micheal started LOOSING WEIGHT!!!

Malaika   July 31st, 2009 6:34 pm ET

No 1 mjfan.... u gt a point... its a good thing he is goin 2 jail, he is responsible 4 MJ's death, my onli hope is Murray spills the beans cz he ddnt do it alone

Man...we need to start our own Investgation Unit{ Michael Jackson Criminal Defense Dept.}.
Wouldnt the poisoning show up in the autopsy?

Josephine Mc.   July 31st, 2009 7:15 pm ET

If Michael knew he had another son then why didn’t he include him in the will or ignolage Omer as his son by telling the world like he did with the rest of his children? And the way they say Omer was conceived doesn’t sound like something Michael would do. I don’t think Michael was a “One night stand “kind of person he seems too personal for that.

Josephine Mc.   July 31st, 2009 7:16 pm ET

I Don't think Omer is Michaels son. It sounds like another Billie Jean.

Jacquelyn   July 31st, 2009 7:18 pm ET


It depends on the poison and the poison you are looking for. Lets say if you poison someone with anti-freeze or arsenic there are ways to manipulate so it would go unnoticed. But others would have like an almond type smell when an autopsy is done.

Lori   July 31st, 2009 7:21 pm ET

You have to ask yourself, why would a doctor making $150K a month be delivering the breakfast food tray? Do you know any doctor that carries a food tray?

Lori   July 31st, 2009 7:23 pm ET

Adrienne July 31st, 2009 5:53 pm ET

Can someone answer this… What is the truth about the autopsy and tox report not being released to the public at all??

Adrienne, at this point with everything so confusing, I am almost expecting them to announce that they have finally determined that the body they had in the morgue and did tests on was not that of Michael Jackson. I mean we've heard every other bizarre theory, why not that??

Jacquelyn   July 31st, 2009 7:24 pm ET


I asked myself, and thought about it. And I came up with this answer. NO. I would not be carrying a food tray.

I think Larry needs some of Michael's fans as guest, because these wishy, washy people dont know a thing. All they know is how to make a profit off of someone's death.

Lori   July 31st, 2009 7:35 pm ET

Seriously we have heard everything

He's black, he white,
He's strong, he's frail
He's eating; he's not sleepin..

the polica r defintley not gonna investigate AEG after the donation

Lori   July 31st, 2009 7:56 pm ET

Yea have you noticed that AEG seems to have a money stake in everything?

Susan   July 31st, 2009 8:00 pm ET

Honestly when I see the guests on your show or others these people just smile a lot and don't answer squat. A bunch of hot air that leaves viewers hanging on edge and mad at the end of the show.
Look if I worked and lived at MJ's I think I would know more than what these people are telling, unless they signed a confidential agreement that restricts them from talking.
Didn't the chef say that she wasn't allowed upstairs? So who knows if MJ ate the food prepared? I just think that it very odd of how all of these people are around MJ and don't know what was going on other than MJ was a very nice man.

Jacquelyn   July 31st, 2009 8:06 pm ET


AEG knows what they are doing. It come at a better time, huh?

Mary U from Ohio   July 31st, 2009 8:10 pm ET

Probably the reason the autopsy and tox. not being reported cause the LAPD and the others made fools of themselves.. Cause Michael Died a normal death.... my Thought.....

lex   July 31st, 2009 8:14 pm ET

yea jacquelyn aeg r sleazeballs and dr murray is gonna get off easy. somebody needs 2 speak up and tell the damn truth.

Adrienne   July 31st, 2009 8:30 pm ET

Now if MJ did die a normal death, AEG wouldn't get their money. But what the LAPD is putting out is the MJ is a addict.

Adrienne   July 31st, 2009 8:35 pm ET

Has anyone noticed that AEG had an ENT do the physical on MJ? That person is not even qualified to do anything except for ear, nose and throat. Sounds pretty suspicious to me.

Susan   July 31st, 2009 8:38 pm ET

So off topic. Is Omer MJ's son? Well, if he wants to be great and if not leave him alone. From what I can tell by the photo he has a 'MJ" profile. I am not the judge or jury in this matter, but it is quiet interesting. Joe Jackson TELL IT ALL!!!!!!! HOLD NOTHING BACK WE ALL WANT TO KNOW.

I think everyone that is skeptical of Joe needs to take a closer look at him. What does he have to lose? Hell, he has lived a very lush life off MJ and is still enjoying the benefits so just sit back and see what he has to say. It has to better than what the others are smiling about.

Katherine she's not hurting for money, she is being pushed by close family members and her lawyers to do the things that are being done now. I am glad that they have come to some kind of mediation about the children.

I know at first did not want Debbie Rowe to have anything to do with the children, but she deserves a chance to tell her children her side of the story instead of the MEDIA. I am sure she has her regrets about the decisions that she made early on. We all have regrets in our lives, even though we all did not get millions of dollars for them. We can not judge others unless we fall into the same judgment we passed on that person. KARMA!!!!!!

Jacquelyn   July 31st, 2009 8:39 pm ET


To be vengeful and spiteful

Dirty Diana   July 31st, 2009 8:40 pm ET

I think the DA is slowly (a bit too slowly) building their case. Most importantly, nothing should interfere with this case, hence, not releasing the tox report. The more they persist Mj was an addict, the better for murray's defense. Everything rides on the tox report at this point. I think they have had the results for a while now.

Dirty Diana   July 31st, 2009 8:48 pm ET

Stop digging for stories with unimportant people from mj's past. They are coming out of the woodwork, like worms.
So many more important things to talk about such as Mj's humanitarian efforts. Have McCauley Culkin, Emanuel Lewis and Cory (?) to discuss mj and those early years at Neverland. Enough with Omer!!!and all these other people who spent little time with mj. Talk about the kids that Mj helped through Make a Wish, etc. Kids that he helped to fight cancer, AIDS, etc. Give us something uplifting and honest from the heart. Fans are hurting and would like some closure.

Elena   July 31st, 2009 8:51 pm ET

Joe Jackson was merely responding to the guy's STATEMENT – it wasn't asked like a real journalist, in the form of a question.

The estranged Joe Jackson has been trying to appear "in the know" and as if he had a relationship with Michael ever since his death.
He's embarrassed and humiliated for being left out of everything – from his life to the funeral and memorial service planning, etc.

He NEVER said that Omer was MJ's son.
All he did was agree with what was presented as a statement of fact.

Joe Jackson doesn't know - but the way the guy presented it to him was that it was a fact that everyone knows.

That guy is trying to get his little 15-minutes like so many others.

Think about it - a REAL journalist would have asked proper follow-up questions - but this guy didn't - he just ran with it - and started TWITTERING all about it right away – – not because Joe Jackson confirmed anything - but because this guy wants everyone to pay attention to HIM and is trying to get attention.

LOOK at the actual interview - Joe Jackson NEVER says that Omer is MJ's son - NEVER!!!!

(in fact - the fraud reporter even Twitters how upset he is that Anderson Cooper 360 dismisses the story - and rightly so - AC is a REAL journalist - this joker smokey guy is NOT!!!!!!)

lex   July 31st, 2009 8:52 pm ET

hopefully oprah will hav a show about mj and all his humanitarian acts

Nick Kostelnak   July 31st, 2009 9:21 pm ET

I think Omer is Blankets father.

Toni   July 31st, 2009 9:23 pm ET

Hi>>>MJCSI agent here

Lori and the food tray!
You all make me laugh so much. I can just imagine us all in a room together , a few beers, some chips, Hell, we would have this case solved in no time. What am I saying, we already did.

Keizon   July 31st, 2009 9:34 pm ET

He had another son,period.Looks just like him and blanket..Doesn't change who Michael was/is.Still love him,always will.

Robbin Deloach   July 31st, 2009 9:40 pm ET

I have eneoph sence to know that Michael Jackson was never and could never be a childmolester I just think that it is a shame that it took his death for people to fineally stand up and say he was a good person with an angelic like personality and Yes he might have turned to drugs but he had so much pain to deal with Who are we to judge him What would we do if we had to walk in his shoes He was a good soul and May GOD bless him and his and forgive those of us us that lied against him it would be only right for the people that hurt him to come forward and TELL THE TRUTH let the world know that he was good right the wrong done to him in life We will forgive as GOD and Michael also would want us to GOD BLESS his children and loved ones

carol kesling   July 31st, 2009 9:44 pm ET

three letters D.N.A. get it done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! just maybe the tox reports are not available because they did not think to look for dipivan until they were done... and maybe,just maybe they are retesting the tissues now looking for it....its a thought !!!!!!!!!!! i just want to know the truth ,but we may never know what the real truth is !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Heather   July 31st, 2009 9:48 pm ET

I truly admired and adored Michael Jackson, but lets face it, there was a reason he wasn't close to his father. Sorry to say but I think Joe Jackson will say anything no matter how ridiculous or defamatory it is just to get himself on TV. Even at the expense of his departed son. That is one of the many tragedies of this story. Don't you think in this day and age of anyone and everyone claiming this star or that athlete is the father or their baby and demanding DNA tests and child support, that Omer Bhatti's mother would have said nothing for 25 years and never asked for child support? And in order to get it she would have had to prove he was Michael's son and if she had done that there is no way on this earth that Michael Jackson would have left that big chunk of his estate to 3 children and left one out. I think if there had been any chance that Omer Bhatti was Michael Jackson's son, the issue would have been solved a long time ago. Just more people (media, Joe Jackson, etc.) still trying to cash in on the Michael Jackson gravy train. Sad!

Dburd   July 31st, 2009 9:52 pm ET

if OMER was Michael, he would had listed him on hisWill and as much as Michael loves kids as much as he does, why didnt Michael boast about Omer, provided Support, allow him to live in Norway . Omar parents worked for MJ. and he practicatlly lived on Neverland. He grew up wth Michael. I dont think MIchael would had denied him and would had fought for him Like he did with the three younger ones.

It is my opinion, that both the media and every one else needs to leave the family alone, Let them be and grieve in their private way.

As for Joe Jackson. I have no respect for him. He is a liar, a thef and dd not provide for his wife and was allowing his son to pay for every thing in the house his mother lives in which is also is MIchael's.

Michael respected his Mother, his brothers, his sisters and his chosen attorneys and chosen exeuctors of his wlll

diana   July 31st, 2009 9:57 pm ET

They should do OMER'S DNA and clear this up once and forever.
The latest rumor is that Pia Bhatti is also Blanket's mother.

Dbird   July 31st, 2009 10:07 pm ET

Like Michael, changing his features alot, Omer wanted to be like Michael/ When he was little, he dressed like him, put make up on and dd dances like him. None of the Jacksons have chin dipples. Micahel added his in one of his Plastic surgeries. Omer does have a chin dipple. Have you seen Omer father and mother? untll you see tham., dont say any more.

Barbara   July 31st, 2009 10:11 pm ET

The poison was propofol/diprivan............he stopped breathing , it only take 2 to 4 minutes for the amount of diprivan in the blood stream to be reduced by half, what does that mean 4 hours later when he is in the hospital won't appear in the blood.

It will appear in the brain and tissues from CHRONIC USE, but THE TOXIC LEVEL THAT KILLED HIM would not be detectable in his blood stream any longer its a short acting anesthetic, that disappears rapidly. That is 1 reason the report has not been released.

Another reason is they are going to release any arrests and the autopsy/toxocology reports same day

I do agree though LAPD, did not like Michael, raided Neverland and the handling of this is suspect given they did not secure the house he died in rather was murdered in immediately, and then the raid in Las Vegass 6 days after the raid in Texas...gee long enough to go on a vacation least alone get rid of evidence

Barbara   July 31st, 2009 10:15 pm ET

i agree it will never be over for poor Omer, unless his DNA if done would come back not MIchael's son..........

I agree Omer and Blanket do look very much alike, perhaps father and son.

A Hines   July 31st, 2009 11:15 pm ET

What is crazy old Joe trying to pull now? My guess --this is an opportunity for him to squash the rumors that MJ was gay. Not that any of MJ's true fans gave a hoot one way or the other.
If this boy was MJ's son we would have known about it when he was born. He wanted a family why would he have denied this was his child?
Do us all a favor and keep Joe and his "whacko" friends off your show.

Joe Jackson said Omer Bhatti looks like Michael Jackson. Looking at the pic of Omer Bhatti sitting next to Latoya and Janet Jackson at memorial service of Michael Jackson there is no resemblance.He Joe Jackson also said he acts like a Jackson,and dances like a Jackson. First he should of said Omer Bhatti acts and dances like Michael Jackson.Just like how many around the world who acts and dances (or try to !!!) act ,imitate Michael Jackson. If he Omer Bhatti was really Michael Jacksons real son by blood Michael Jackson would of told the world!! Why would Michael keep it as a secret? Joe Jackson really did not know his son.Continues to never know what to say about his son Michael.A "BLOODY SHAME". Love you Michael,gonna miss you!!

dorothy   August 1st, 2009 1:12 am ET

Hi Larry how are you. I wach the Larry King show tonite 7-31-09. And they had a picture of (Omer Bhatti) and Joe was right Omer looks just like Michael. People say why Michael never said he had a older son. Michael are such a big celebrity star, so why would he take that chance , on his son getting kidnap, or anything to happen to his son. So I do understand why Michael would keep his son a secret. Look at what happen in his life about all the court stuuff, Who no what else would have happen if it was out that he had a son, and that was best to keep him a secret. No one no nothing about any of the (Jackson's ) kids. I no I have never heard anything bout their kids not nothing . Some years ago there was a rumor going around that Janet had a child. Does anyone no her child (NO) they don't.

I know there has ben talk about a Reunion Tour of the "Jackson 5" and now that Michael is gone maybe they are planning on having OMER to be used in his place. Now this sounds like something that Joe Jackson would conceive of doing.

What do you all think?

Also, I believe that LAPD is stalling with the Coroners Report because they may feel that if that don't charge MJ's Dr./s with his death that LA may have another Rodney King Riot on there hands with all the destruction, theft and injuries that had happened back then. Especially after seeing all the Fans Pain around the world with the announcement of MJ's death. This would truly be a sad state of affairs for our country to have another riot due to MJ's death/drug overdose.

Let us all chill and not have this happen in our great country.. God Bless the USA!

Dr. Murray has been arrested twice for domestic violence., all sorts of default on payments and does not pay child support. I wonder what else will be added to this list of achievements? You would think AEG would do a character investigation before agreeing to pay him $150000 per month.

micky   August 1st, 2009 2:02 am ET

I would like to know, other than bringing Mj his breakfast tray in the morning, what else did Murray do for Mj??????Did he put mj on a special diet, did he do other tests and exams? What exactly did he do to earn $150000 per month? Has he ever stated what his duties were exactly, especially when he arrived at 9pm and left in the morning.

Toni   August 1st, 2009 2:31 am ET

There is no way the Jackson 5 could do it without Michael. He was IT. Thats why they never got far when he went solo. I wouldnt even be able to watch it, it would be way too sad. Michael made the Jackson 5, and that died with him.

micky   August 1st, 2009 4:00 am ET

I would think Joe and MJ's brothers were pissed when Michael went out on his own. They knew it was over for them.

Kat Larstone   August 1st, 2009 4:40 am ET

Michael Jackson loved his black fedora. Perhaps on his birthday we should all wear a black hat to comemorate his and his life.
" Black Hats & Loving Hearts " day, in celebration of Michaels birthday.
Think we could pull it off ?? I think it would put the biggest smile on Michaels face!!

Kat Larstone   August 1st, 2009 4:43 am ET

Maybe it's just me, but I actually see some similarities there between Michael and this young man. So what if he is ?? It will certainly stuff a sock in the mouths of those who insist Michael is gay. I hope he is Michaels son, I truly do...

Lisa S   August 1st, 2009 4:47 am ET

carol kesling:

You say "do a DNA and clear it all up". Clear it all up for whom? It is only Omers busness. If he wants to clear things up he can do a DNA but he already knows. His family tree is nobody elses buisness. It would be a different thing if he claimed money or half the kingdom or something. But he is not.


It is not his duty or obligation to tell the world who his father is. I cant believe what people think they can demand from other people.

He has lost a close and dear friend. Leave him alone!

sharmaine   August 1st, 2009 5:21 am ET

hi! how could omer bhatti be a son of MJ. If he is, then MJ could have included him in his will. that's so and white...Oh shut up, Joe! you're nothing but a dollar hungry old man.

mariau   August 1st, 2009 8:33 am ET

i guess too.. Omer is Michael's son..

Lisa S   August 1st, 2009 9:04 am ET

find a photo of Michael when he is 14 and compare to a photo when Omer i 14 and tell me that they look alike.

Elisheva, Jerusalem/Israel   August 1st, 2009 10:20 am ET

What would have been the difference between Omer and McCauley Culkin or Frank Tyson and his brother. Weren't the latter also not friends until MJ died? Why was Omer sitting right next to Rebbie and not one of the other Jackson grandchildren?

Sita   August 1st, 2009 10:46 am ET

Sure we all know the sensitivity, humanity, dignity of Michael by now. I mean, do we all think that Michael wouldn't announce to us all if Omer Bhatti was his son. So, no, Omer is not his son. Since this boy is from Norway, I remember Diana Ross was married to a Norwegian man and has two sons with this man. Who knows Diana might have introduced the parents of Omer to become family friends of Michael and typical Michael. He invited them to live in Neverland. This boy was born in 1984. 1985 Diana married the Norwegian guy. I leave it to you to sum it all up.

Jacquelyn   August 1st, 2009 2:18 pm ET

I dont recall Joe saying Omer looks like MIchael. In fact, he never mentioned his name. You all need to stop speculating about whether or not this is Michael's child or not. Michael said he have 3 children so leave it at that. You also said because of the public eye he probably didnt want to put Omer in that situation. But he has 3 kids already.But then again Omer was taking care of. So just leave it alone and let it be. Look at Michael from back in the day and compare it to Omer now. Do he look like a Jackson? Do it really matter if he was? What if this is not Michael's child what if he was just took him in to help Omer's parents out. Leave the kids out of this, all of them. They are Michael's and no one else's. There is no need for a DNA test just because you feel it is necessary. Let it go.

vivwolsk   August 1st, 2009 3:12 pm ET

Jo Jackson is an opportunist and of course has a reason to say this young man is MJ's son. He is probably already figuring on promoting his career and making billions! There would have been no good reason fir MJ to keep this a secret all these years with all the other negative publicity and the children he did claim to father.

Jodie L   August 1st, 2009 3:17 pm ET

IF Omer is his son then so be it. MJ was a great father. Let him (Omer live his life and go on. Let him remember MJ for who he was and if that was his father then let it be. Leave all those kids alone. Cant we just let them live their lives and go one with what counts.. WHO KILLED MJ?

Samantha - South Africa   August 1st, 2009 3:48 pm ET

Omer isn't Michael's biological son.Michael didn't seem like the type who would fool around and he even asked Gotham Chopra for 'advice' when he married Lisa Marie Presley.Michael adored kids and probably forged a close bond with Omer and saw him as if were his own.Joe Jackson was just pulling a fast one on the public,after all he knows that the media are a bunch of idiots!!!

Also,since the media are now implying that Michael may indeed have a "4th child",it contradicts all their previous statements which state that "Michael was sterile" and that "Dr Klein is Prince and Paris' biological father" amongst other things.As far as I'm concerned the media are a bunch of scavengers who would go to any lengths even if it means distorting the truth or making up ludicrous crap which seems to be the norm these days!!!!

In my opinion,Michael Jackson is the highest degree of character assassination by the media and sadly even in death,he is being scrutinized!

Jacquelyn   August 1st, 2009 4:03 pm ET

Ok Lets say this what if they all are not his kids those of still Michael's children. And if he took Omer and put him to leave with his family so what. Maybe Michael did not want his own biological kids, because of his Vitiligo or Lupus and did not want his kids to inherit something like that. He thought about others before thinking about himself. If they are all his then it shows he was willing to take that chance because Vitiligo and Lupus doesnt necessarily means his children would have it.

But in any case he loves those kids, provided for them and did all he could to make them happy. And those kids love him and the rest of the Jackson family which was quite evident at the Memorial service.

Leave the kids alone and let them be. DNA does not mean a thing. So those of you asking for it should be ashame of yourselves. Who cares. Now if someone comes and ask you or your child to take a DNA test you would be flying of the handle. IT IS NONE OF OUR BUSINESS, IF THEY ARE ARENT THEY. What we need to be focus on is What happened to Michael. And not paternity of kids that does not concern you.

I agree Samantha. I am afraid this will go on for a while. Within a couple of weeks I will go on a holiday to Europe. I have arranged with myself I will stay away from a computer as much as possible.

I will think of MJ anyhow, for that I don't need the media.

knitfrog1975   August 1st, 2009 6:07 pm ET

I think if Omer were MJ's son he would have acknowledged it in his life. He loved Prince, Paris and Blanket immeasurably from what people say. I doubt he would deny another son he had. R.I.P. MJ!

Laurie   August 1st, 2009 6:56 pm ET

Why would Michael keep it as a secret? Joe Jackson really did not know his son.Continues to never know what to say about his son Michael.A ”BLOODY SHAME”. Love you Michael,gonna miss you!!

Becaue MJ didn't know either. It was one of those situations that got handled to protect MJ's image. MJ found out way after the fact–after the trial or later. I bet there is another Will out there somewhere.

Amanda $ -IL   August 2nd, 2009 8:02 am ET

DON'T TRUST MEDIA! LOL. Maybe except for CNN lol no offense though. I just heard that Katherine got FULL CUSTODY of the kids & that Debbie Rowe can come see them or whatever, how stupid. I bet the Jacksons paid her as well. :\

Cocovelvet   August 2nd, 2009 8:39 am ET

I am really sick and tired of hearing this thing that OMER is MJ'S "LOVE CHILD"... What in the first place does the media mean by that??!!... Did they really go out and research what that means or they are just saying it out of ignorance as they are always so ignorant ??!!.

Basically I would think when someone hears of the word "LOVE CHILD", they already see or view a situation whereby there was LOVE between two people who conceived a child, meaning there was a relationship or love affair which usually lasts longer than one night;..... But at the same time the media make those allegations that Omer was a result of a "ONE NIGHT STAND".......I mean how can a one-night stand constitute any love, which basically means you meet someone just there for the first time and thats it for that night.

How could MJ had loved someone for just one night that probably he never got close to before!!??...COME ON MEDIA::CUT YOUR CRAP AND GET LOST WITH THIS IDEA THAT OMER IS MJ'S LOVE CHILD AS YOU PUT IT. He is not in the first place MJ'S child; the allegations made by Joe Jackson are just to make you continue getting confused as you seem to be now.

Lois   August 2nd, 2009 6:02 pm ET

I think the reason that are delaying the autopsy report and tox report is because I think they are going to lay charges. It probably won't be for public viewing until it goes to court. That is my opinion, I can't see any other reason than that, unless MJ died of something else they are not ready to divulge to the public yet.

Maureen (UK)   August 2nd, 2009 7:28 pm ET

Yes, that makes sense.

Fingers crossed the Jackson family get control of the will tomorrow.

Cindy   August 2nd, 2009 8:16 pm ET

Can these stupid media shows get off this crap that Omer is Michael Jackson's love child? For heaven's sake the kid came out PUBLICLY and stated emphatically that he is NOT Michael's son. He was just a boy that MJ saw dance on stage and he thought the kid had talent so he invited the boy and his mom to Neverland to see if he could help him in the entertainment business and maybe teach him some new steps. That's it, that's all, nothing more to it. Joe Jackson just keeps on hoping for that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow but he has made such a fool out of himself that no one takes him seriously.

Jacquelyn   August 2nd, 2009 8:48 pm ET

By the way this case is moving. We might solve Michael's murder before they do. I mean we figured out the majority of this stuff weeks ago before they did. COME ON LAPD, GET TO MOVIE, LETS GO ALREADY!!!!!

Julie   August 2nd, 2009 11:49 pm ET

Who knows. He does look a little like Michael, but then again, Michael IS his idol, its not hard to try and duplicate someones look.

But if he was Michaels kid, perhaps his mom cheated on his dad with Michael, and Omer is protecting his parents relationship?

jenny(AUSTRALIA)   August 3rd, 2009 5:14 am ET

It is a big mystery, but I jsut heard Joe Jackson confess on the Show- Larry King, that Omar is MJ's son!!
Did anyboby see that on the show?

jenny(AUSTRALIA)   August 3rd, 2009 6:22 am ET


Lisa S   August 3rd, 2009 6:50 am ET

The music buisness is one of the last buisness where slacery and slave contracts are still allowed. George Michael said it 20 years ago and he had to pay a high price for that statement.

jenny(AUSTRALIA)   August 3rd, 2009 6:59 am ET

i totaly agree with you but do u think about this issue

jenny(AUSTRALIA)   August 3rd, 2009 7:03 am ET

Hey Guys, Good Morning, is anybody there??
It is 9 pm here in Melbourne.

Maureen (UK)   August 3rd, 2009 7:13 am ET

Good morning
Yes it's true about george Michael, Lisa.
Jenny, I think Omar is one of the family but not "biologically". Joe wasn't asked to clarify that.

jenny(AUSTRALIA)   August 3rd, 2009 7:36 am ET

Hi Maureen,
Maybe you are right, I am sure that he is not MIcheal Jackson's son.
I mean he has denied it.
Just because he looks like him, does not mean Omar is his son.

Maureen (UK)   August 3rd, 2009 8:00 am ET

True. It's just media spin.

Maureen (UK)   August 3rd, 2009 8:02 am ET

Media spin
It takes our concentration away from more important issues: The Estate, in court today !

RN   August 3rd, 2009 8:42 am ET

What is the big thing for Larry to discuss Omer is a Love child of MJ? Larry might have a few (married seven times and continued).. There are many out there with that kind of life style. If Omer is , it is left to Omer to come clean openly. Likewise Omer's biological mom.

d5   August 3rd, 2009 10:05 am ET

Good Morning everyone: I hope these women out here don't start coming out the woodwork claming the "BABYDADDY" charges on MJ. And I do wish Mr. Joseph Jackson woud refraim from speaking to the Media, he just keeps adding "INSULT TO INJURY".

d5   August 3rd, 2009 10:34 am ET

could "OMAR BHETTI" be a part of ROYALTY over in his country and Joe Jackson wants to be a part of that that money?

Julie   August 3rd, 2009 10:50 am ET

Maybe he's related to Nelson Mandela, and Michael was just hiding him in the USA? Maybe he's related to The Queen or something? Maybe...


Come on guys, "maybe" all kinds of crap. If the kids felt he was, he'd get a DNA test. Otherwise, its no ones business!

Joe doesn't have a clue what he is talking about. Again, I think he is estranged from his family, and is trying to pretend he isn't, by appearing in public speaking as though he knows whats going on. He is just seeking attention. The rest of the family should get a lawyer to tell him not to speak to any more media.

Jacquelyn   August 3rd, 2009 11:06 am ET


Tell me where in the video do you hear Joe mentions Omer?

Julie   August 3rd, 2009 12:50 pm ET

They ask him about Omer being Michaels son, and he said he knew all along he was. What exactly are you asking?

Adriana from Romania   August 3rd, 2009 3:02 pm ET

I don't believe a word Joe is saying about Michael. He has never been close to his son and he has never known him, at least that's what it seems like. I remember saying that he found out about his son's death... from the fans!? and that he had no idea where the casket was taken after the memorial service.Oh, give us a break!! He lives in another world, he just wants to be in the spotlight.
This is my opinion. I don't want to make accusations, but it all seems so made up...I just want them all to leave Michael alone.
Rest in Peace, Michael!

Adriana from Romania   August 3rd, 2009 3:04 pm ET

Loved what Julie said. good for you, Julie!

Julie   August 3rd, 2009 5:52 pm ET

IMO, The more info the family tells Joe about, the more he is going to talk about it to the media. So the family is not telling him anything.

Shannon S   August 3rd, 2009 7:56 pm ET

I think that Omer could be MJ's son, but then again for some reason my mom made a point that OMER and BLANKET look simliar to Miko Brando. It made me think, he is dark and he has that look so maybe Miko gave the sperm for both?

NINA YIRDAW   August 3rd, 2009 8:45 pm ET

I wish he was MJ's son. I wish he had as many fruits as possible so that we could have his genes and as well as his talents, although no one can be like him. I Love You Michael.

No Name   August 3rd, 2009 9:14 pm ET

what will happen if the grendmother dies,[she is not young} are the kids going to go with this ordeal again?????

Joe Lay   August 3rd, 2009 9:20 pm ET

You know who really cares? We have enough problems in the world without the media bringing more attention to negative things. Lets work on more positive thins, the world needs that now

Julie   August 3rd, 2009 10:46 pm ET

I think Janet would make a great mother to the children.

Cecelia Burger   August 4th, 2009 12:38 am ET

What does it matter? Michael loved him and that's the end of it. Even if he had adopted him like a son what would be the difference? You either love someone or you don't. Ask any adopted parent and they will tell you that it does not matter!

Naina   August 4th, 2009 6:24 am ET

I thought over the fact and questioned myself and the answer I got is no. I think we should not pay attention to these negative things.

Lisa S   August 4th, 2009 8:59 am ET

The more i read abut this the more bizzar it appears. Lets asume that the norweigan woman HAD a relationship with Michael and it resulted in a child. She would be really in a hurry trying to find a pakistanian man that could be belived being the father of her child. I dont know how many pakistanian men thaere are in Norway but anyway it definately would have kept her busy those 9 months. Or did she wait until the baby came out to realize it had pakistan-features? And then went looking for a man that looked as the baby?

What if the baby that came out had had kinky hair?

Or did she have this affair with michael while already married and then though "well, nobody sees the difference. all darkskinned children look the same"

Hardly any of the above. Just accept that Omer already have 2 parents he consider being his parents and leave him alone!
