MICHAEL Jackson's alleged love child - now in his 20's - is telling the late singer's children he is their new father.
Omer Bhatti - whom the late King of Pop told friends he had fathered - has been living at the Jackson family compound in Hayvenhurst Avenue, California, and has changed his name to Omer Michael Bhatti.
The 25-year-old Norwegian rapper-and-dancer has allegedly told Jackson's three children - Prince Michael, 13, Paris, 11, and eight-year-old Prince Michael II, known as "Blanket", - he has been "sent by their father" to take care of them and he is their new dad.
Since the death of the Thriller singer - who passed away last June from acute Propofol intoxication - the children's legal guardian has been Jackson's mother Katherine Jackson, 79.
A source said: "Prince (Blanket) has been particularly vulnerable to Omer and his claims.
"He's starting to believe Omer's claims that he is his father."
Omer is also alleged to be living off the Jackson family's money.
California's department of children and family services has visited the property several times and is monitoring the children's situation.
Omer first met Jackson in 1996 in Tunisia while on a family holiday with his mother Pia and stepfather Riz.
He impressed the star with his dance moves and they became "best friends".
In 1997, the family moved into Jackson's luxury estate, where Pia is believed to have worked as a nanny and Riz a driver.
Jackson is believed to have told friends in 2004 he was Omer's biological father after having a one-night stand with Pia in 1984, although in the aftermath of his death Omer denied Jackson was his dad. - Bang
