The Sun online reported that Omer Bhatti, 25-year-old has said that Jackson had honoured him as an honorary son after inviting him and his family to move in with him and also hailed Michael Jackson as his 'best friend'.
Earlier, Reports had claimed that Omer Bhatti was born after Jackson had a one-night stand with his mother Pia Bhatti in 1983. They were fuelled further after the young singer was spotted sitting in the front row alongside Jackson's brothers and sisters at his memorial.
However, Bhatti has dismissed reports that he is seeking a DNA test to prove he is the son of Jackson. He said, "Michael is not my father. He and I were just very, very close. He was my best friend."
He also said, "Michael always used to say I was like a son to him," he told the friend. "But my true parents are here in Norway. The reason I was asked to sit with his family at the memorial service is because I was Michael's closest friend, not because I am his son."
