The rumor that 25-year-old Norwegian rapper Omer Bhatti is in fact Michael Jackson’s secret son has just gained a high-profile booster: Michael’s own father, Joe Jackson. “Yes, I knew [Michael] had another son,” Joe Jackson said when a NewsOne interviewer asked him about Bhatti. “Yes I did…He looks like a Jackson, he acts like a Jackson, he can dance like a Jackson.”

Watch the clip below, then let us know: Do you believe Joe Jackson? Is he a credible source on this? Do you think Omer Bhatti is Michael Jackson’s son?
