Is this Michael Jackson's protege?

August 03, 2009 15:02 IST

Who knew Michael Jackson better than the kids who lived with him at the singer's sprawling Neverland ranch.

Of the many children that stayed over at the ranch, the most prominent ones were Nisha Kataria and Omar Bhatti (who many say is Jackson's biological son).

Jackson took Nisha Kataria, now a young adult, under his wing with the aim of making her into a recording star. She lived with Michael for two months.

Nisha, who appeared on Larry King, revealed what it was like to live with the late singer and Omar Bhatti, the 26 year-old who Joe Jackson has recently stated is Michael Jackson's son.

According to the, Nisha revealed that she had recorded a song with Michael at Neverland. Her manager hopes that the mystery song written by Michael will be heard on the new album.

As for whether Omar Bhatti is Michael Jackson's son Nisha neither verified nor denied the allegations though she did say that Michael was an excellent father to his children, Paris, Prince, and Blanket Jackson.

'You would think that these kids, you know, they -- they could have anything they ever wanted because Michael Jackson was their father. And there was one time when me and my mom and Michael and Prince were all in the movie theater. And there's a concession stand with all the candy and popcorn and ice cream you could ever ask for.

'And one day we were all in the theater and my mom offered Prince a candy bar. And Michael told her politely, he said, oh, can't have anymore today.  He already had some.

'So you could tell that they were disciplined kids and they were really close to their father -- really polite, friendly kids.'
