Is Omer Bhatti Michael Jackson's Fourth Child? - KTLA

As a child, Omer Bhatti, often traveled with Jackson and even lived at the singer's Neverland ranch.
Court records show Bhatti was living at Neverland when authorities raided the estate in 2003 looking for evidence of child molestation.
Bhatti was briefly interviewed by investigators and was initially on the defense's list of prospective witnesses.
But he was never asked to testify.
At Jackson's memorial at Staples, Bhatti was prominently seated in the front row next to the pop star's children and siblings.
He is also said to be seeking a DNA test to determine whether Jackson is in fact his father.
In Vienna Wednesday, Jackson's brother Jermaine said Bhatti would be welcomed into the family, if he's proven a Jackson.
"If Omer's his son, he's his son," Jermaine told Britain's the Daily Mail. '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."
In 2004, Us Weekly reported that Jackson did, indeed, acknowledge that he was the father.
A source told the magazine: "Jackson has told his closest associates Omer's mom's was a Norwegian with whom he had a one-night stand."
