Blanket's Mother 'Discovered' By U.s. Tabloid
Jackson never disclosed the identity of seven-year-old 'Blanket''s true mother, revealing only that he was born to an anonymous surrogate.
Star magazine claims she is close friend Pia Bhatti, who agreed to donate her eggs to the superstar after befriending him through her son Omer - who found fame as an impersonator of the King of Pop, and later became known as his 'fourth child'.
Omer captivated Jackson when they met in the African country in 1996, through the then-12 year old's ability to mimic him and his dance moves.
The singer took the child on tour with him and his family moved to live with Jackson at his Neverland Ranch.
Star's report alleges Jackson struck up a deal with Pia Bhatti to provide him with a third child, alongside son Prince Michael, 12, and daughter Paris, 11, and she promised to keep her identity a secret.
A source tells the magazine, "Pia was sworn to secrecy about Blanket.
"The agreement she had with Michael was that she would never reveal herself to be Blanket's mum."
When approached by Star reporters, Bhatti refused to comment on the claims.
Omer, meanwhile, is the subject of a separate report suggesting he is Jackson's biological son.
The claims are fuelled by the 25 year old's presence at the King of Pop's July (09) memorial service, where he sat on the front row with the Jackson family.
