Mystery memorial man Jacko's 'love child'
A MYSTERIOUS 25-year-old given a front-row seat at Michael Jackson's memorial service is thought to be the King of Pop's secret love child, it has emerged.
Britain's The Sun newspaper reveals tearful Omer Bhatti, 25, sat among Jackson's family during the tribute earlier this month.
It will add to suspicion that he is Jackson's fourth child.
Jackson reportedly admitted in 2004 that Bhatti was born after a one-night stand 20 years earlier.
The Norwegian is now believed to be seeking a DNA test to discover the truth - and yesterday his parents refused to confirm or deny the claims.
"Make what you like. I don't want to discuss anything," his dad Riz Bhatti told the paper.
Both Riz and Omer's mum Pia worked for Jackson in the US.
Riz is believed to have been a driver and Pia a nanny.
The Sun also revealed Bhatti lived at Jackson's Neverland mansion for several years.
After he was born, the superstar even sent two employees to Oslo to help his mum raise him.
He and Bhatti are reported to have first met in 1996.They remained close right up until the star's death on June 25 after a long addiction to prescription drugs.
In an interview in 2008, Bhatti said: "Loyalty is the most important thing for me.
"I have contact with Michael, and I think my loyalty to him is the reason we still have our contact.
"He is an unbelievably good human being."
Today Bhatti is trying to make a name for himself in the world of rap and hip-hop, promoting himself under the stage name O-Bee.
He has remained in LA since the memorial service.
