Michael Jackson’s youngest son Prince Michael Jackson II was spotted out and about with his young cousins, a bodyguard, and Omer Bhatti, a 33-year-old Norwegian man who has long claimed to be Michael’s “secret son.”
Bigi, who turns 17 in February, is seen leaving a Barnes and Nobles bookstore near the Calabasas homes of his grandmother, Katherine Jackson, and his older brother, Michael Joseph Jackson Jr., aka Prince, 21.
Bigi’s net worth is said to be $100 million.
Bigi, Prince and their sister Paris Jackson, 20, were conceived via in vitro fertilization.
Prince and Paris’s surrogate mother is Michael’s longtime friend Deborah Rowe, but the identity of their biological father is unclear. Also unknown are the identities of Bigi’s biological parents.
For most of his childhood, Bigi was nicknamed “Blanket” by his father, who often nicknamed his loved ones and friends after inanimate objects.
Omer (pictured far right carrying one of Bigi’s cousins) claimed to be a descendant of the King of Pop, but his claim was rejected by Michael’s estate.
Omer still insists he is Michael’s son. He once lived with Michael at Neverland Ranch when he was a teen, and he remains close friends with the Jackson family today.
