Michael Jackson Had NO (Zero) Other Kids

By Roger Friedman

hollywoodnews.com: Contrary to nutty reports today–including one repeated on the site I created for Fox News in 1999– Michael Jackson had no other children besides the ones we know about, Prince, Paris, and Blanket.

Donte Williams Jackson, who lives in the Jackson family home, is generally considered to be the illegitimate offspring of Joseph Jackson. Joe has at least one other child not from his marriage to Katherine, JoVanni Jackson. She’s been acknowledged by Janet and lives in Las Vegas.

Donte might also be the son of Jermaine Jackson. But whoever he is, he is not the mystery child of Michael Jackson. Neither is Omer Bhatti, the sad Norwegian kid who Michael collected in 1996 in Tunisis when he was 12. Omer is the biological son of Riz and Pia Bhatti, who each worked for Jackson subsequently. Omer now cashes in on his Michael connection by doing shows as a Jackson imitator.

The Donte-is Michael’s kid was picked up by Fox411, sadly. I created that column in 1999 and named it. Now it’s used for regurgitated celebrity misinformation. Oh well.

    Apparently you didn’t do your research because Riz is not Omer’s bioloigcal dad, Riz is Omer’s stepfather. And MJ didn’t “collect” Omer,if fact he knew about Omer long before 1996!
