Home Video Sheds Insight on Jackson Family

7/22/2009 3:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

For those curious about the kind of home Michael Jackson's kids would grow up in under Katherine and Joe, some never-before-seen video of the family may be the best glimpse.

Jackson Family
The more than 40-hours of footage -- showing Joe with several grandchildren in their Hayvenhurst home months before Michael's death -- is the only known video showcasing them living as a family.

Joe can be seen repeatedly praising the kids -- at one point even telling granddaughter Genevieve she could have a potential singing career because "You have the talent. You are a Jackson."

Joe also speaks pointedly about Michael, saying no one but the family truly knows the kind of gentle spirit he is, saying "Anybody in pain, you see tears coming from (Michael's) eyes."

The production company, Xonger Global Entertainment Network, is working with Beverly Hills talent agency APA to license the footage -- originally filmed in hopes of making a reality show.

So far, ABC is the only network to license any of the footage.

Joe actually looks like a human being here. Usually, he looks like a mean old pimp, with all that jewellery and that stupid hat. He also has a personality of a pimp. Always on the take, beating up Michael to force him to make money for him.

A MYSTERIOUS 25-year-old given a front-row seat at Michael Jackson's memorial service is thought to be the King of Pop's secret love child, it has emerged.

Britain's The Sun newspaper reveals tearful Omer Bhatti, 25, sat among Jackson's family during the tribute earlier this month.

It will add to suspicion that he is Jackson's fourth child.

Jackson reportedly admitted in 2004 that Bhatti was born after a one-night stand 20 years earlier.

The Norwegian is now believed to be seeking a DNA test to discover the truth - and yesterday his parents refused to confirm or deny the claims.

"Make what you like. I don't want to discuss anything," his dad Riz Bhatti told the paper.

Both Riz and Omer's mum Pia worked for Jackson in the US.
Riz is believed to have been a driver and Pia a nanny.

The Sun also revealed Bhatti lived at Jackson's Neverland mansion for several years.

After he was born, the superstar even sent two employees to Oslo to help his mum raise him.

He and Bhatti are reported to have first met in 1996.They remained close right up until the star's death on June 25 after a long addiction to prescription drugs.

In an interview in 2008, Bhatti said: "Loyalty is the most important thing for me.

"I have contact with Michael, and I think my loyalty to him is the reason we still have our contact.

"He is an unbelievably good human being."

Today Bhatti is trying to make a name for himself in the world of rap and hip-hop, promoting himself under the stage name O-Bee.

He has remained in LA since the memorial service.

How come it's the "only known video showcasing them living as a family".

Because this is all propaganda. They really aren't a family. They've pulled together a pretense of one in order to pull off a reality show........$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

What an opportune time......why is that Joe?

I think Joe isn't in it for the money as much as he is seeking publicity and "fame" through his son. Joe tried to start a band of his own before his children were born. When that didn't work out, he put his kids in the business. The money is just an added bonus....Joe wants to be the center of attention everywhere he goes....like his son was. Weird how he keeps trying to attain something he obviously was not meant to have.

RE #13: It's the money. Joe needs this reality show. He declared banruputcy not long ago. That's why he's always setting up all these deals, trying to make money. He even tried to promote one of his deals on TV the day after MJ died.
