In a heartwarming moment, Paris Jackson, the 25-year-old daughter of the legendary musician Michael Jackson, opened up about the incredible bond she shares with her three siblings.
During an episode of her Facebook Watch series, Unfiltered, Paris and her brothers revealed their “oldest brother,” Omer Bhatti, a 38-year-old Norwegian dancer and rapper.
Meet Omer Bhatti, the Unofficial Jackson Sibling
To the surprise of many who believed that Prince Jackson, 26, and Blanket Jackson, 21, were Paris’ only brothers, Omer’s unique place in the family was unveiled. When Omer appeared on the show, he confirmed that he considers himself an older brother to the Jackson children.
Omer lovingly explained, “My mother was employed as Prince’s nanny when he was born, and I’ve been there for Paris since she was a baby. I’d say we raised her. She is my younger sister in every way.”
Omer expressed his joy when he became a part of the Jackson family. He said, “I’d always wanted younger siblings, and I got them with Prince, Paris, and Blanket. It brought me so much joy.”
An Unbreakable Bond
Paris, who is incredibly close to her older brothers, profoundly loves and cherishes them. She said, “They have my complete love. Every time we see each other, our bond feels stronger.”
Unlike her typical sibling disputes with Prince, Paris, and Omer have never had any conflicts. Their bond remains unbreakable and filled with love.
As the Jackson siblings grew up, Omer had the unique opportunity to observe their journeys and gain insight into their personalities. He shared, “Paris was undoubtedly a rebel, always more rebellious than Prince. When they were kids, Prince and Paris were complete opposites.”
Omer noticed Prince aligned more with their father’s teachings, so he took it upon himself to guide Paris. “He saw that I was similar to him, always trying to educate her like an older brother should.”
Miracle Encounters and a Father Figure
Omer, popularly known as O-Bee, first encountered Michael Jackson when he began performing at the tender age of nine. Reflecting on their connection, Omer disclosed, “Being on TV and having these appearances led me to Michael Jackson. In a way, he adopted me and became a father figure and mentor.”
Like a sponge, Omer absorbed everything as a young child and saw Michael as his role model. “He later claimed that I was like a mini version of him. Eventually, I joined him on his tour. I would be sitting close to the stage, filled with excitement.”
These extraordinary relationships, strengthened by love and shared experiences, continue to flourish within the Jackson family. Paris, Prince, and Blanket have found comfort in having an “older brother” like Omer, who has supported them through thick and thin. The bond among the Jackson siblings is a testament to the power and beauty of the chosen family.
